Excellent Product

I have used 2 of these at my cottage and have been able to connect to my Lynksys router without issue. The distance is at least 140 ft. 100% link quality, 92% signal strength. I used other typical USB cables without issue for the initial setup. The cable that comes with this product is garbage!! Throw it out; the manufacture seems to be in denial that their cable is non-functional! I gave this a 4 rating because the provided cable is garbage but the adapter is 100%. Cheers.

Very disappointed in this product. It did not work properly which was confirmed by the vendor support. They sent me RMA instructions and then ignored the info I sent to them ( twice ).Although I bought online I had no problem returning to a Best Buy store. So kudos to Best Buy and thumbs down to the product manufacturer.
