1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: Small and comes with a long usb cable. Blinking light lets you know it's plugged in, installed itself on win7

Cons: I've had this thing for a couple of years now and never really used it because I'd always had ethernet. Recently I had to bust it out because we're moving and cleaning our apartment up and I was so glad I had one handy for the transition days.

That happiness was short lived when at first it pulled 2 bars on the router that is less than 10 feet away. It can barely pull signal from a router that is just next door (15 feet away through 2 doors). Other networks show up and drop off completely randomly minute by minute.

It absolutely cannot hold a connection for more than a couple hours even with 3 bars. It's better than nothing but that isn't saying much.

Other Thoughts: I would seriously consider just about any other usb wifi adapter over this one. I brought it over to my router using the extension cord and pulled my router as close as I could without having to rewire it: They're about 3 feet apart and I'm still only getting 4 out of 5 bars. It is absolutely ridiculous. The three laptops and tablet pc we have are able to get signal anywhere in this 1 bedroom apartment at full 5 bars. The tablet can get our router's signal almost a block and a half away. This thing can barely pick it up 10 feet away. Skip it.

5 out of 5 eggsNetgear WPN111

Pros: This Adapter just simply works great. I don't know why others are having problems with it. I bought it over a year ago and simply pluged it into a USB port, Went to Netgear and donwloaded the latest drivers and presto when I restarted my computer it found my router and I was on line fast. It has never one kicked me of or failed to connect.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I think why othes might be having problem is that their not going to netgear and downloading the latest drivers. I will be using more of these in the future.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy a different brand

Pros: Will take up very little space in garbage when I finally give up on it.

Cons: It is barely functional. I have updated to the latest drivers and the internet will cut out randomly all the time. Don't buy this.

Other Thoughts: Nothing to do with newegg, this is just a piece of garbage.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work with Linux

Pros: Comes with an extension cord.

Cons: Doesn't work at all with linux. Don't read this review if its irrelevant to you. DO NOT BUY IF YOU PLAN ON USING WITH LINUX. Even if you have ndiswrapper, it will only cause it to crash permanently. Check compatibility sites and find another product. In fact, never buy netgear stuff for linux. as a general rule, just don't.

Other Thoughts: Spent more than a few hours attempting to make it work with my linux box. caused ndisgdk to crash and i haven't been able to fix it. If you are a Windows user, don't read this review. I'm sure that with the right drivers it will work fine.

1 out of 5 eggsHit or miss

Pros: It will connect to the internet...

Cons: ...then it will kick you off. The problem lies in the Network Wizard software it requires to work. If the program isn't running then you don't have internet. Problem is that any other program you're running could cause the program to fail, thereby disconnecting your internet. I could be web browsing and go to a new web page, such as NewEgg, and the program will decide to fail. It seems tied to activity, but if I'm not doing activity on the computer, why bother with internet? All in all, listen to the others and avoid this product. To be fair, from what I understand, this only happens on certain computers. Desktops seem to be the main culprits. But, unless you like gambling, stay away.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointed especially since this is a RangeMax adapter and I have a RangeMax router. You'd think they'd be made for each other. Big fail on Netgear's part.

1 out of 5 eggswhy isn't there 0 eggs?

Pros: It worked when it did. Just barely better then a potato. Not worth $1

Cons: The signal was inconsistent, and when it did find a good spot, the next day it would be at an incredibly slow speed, and I would have to move it all around, unplug and plug it back in. After 2 weeks of this the usb connection became defective. Luckily I kept the receipt and returned it to exchange for a better one by a different brand.

Other Thoughts: The drivers are the main problem, and my computer would lose connection, and lock up. No matter what kind of driver I found, official or not, this was unavoidable. Netgear simply ignores this product, yet still sells it. This needs to be discontinued ASAP, because it's junk. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

1 out of 5 eggsA potato can act as a better wireless adapter

Pros: It's silver and shiny!

Cons: I could not rate it less than 1 egg. THE WORST PIECE OF HARDWARE I HAVE EVER OWNED! AND THAT INCLUDES MY 10 year old computer with 4 mb ram. The reason I say a potato can do a better job is because if I attach a potato to a USB drive, atleast my computer will still boot and won't slow down.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, gets hot

Pros: Works fine for use with PCs. It gets a little bit hot but I don't care about that. Latest drivers and software are on the Netgear website.

Cons: Haven't seen any.

1 out of 5 eggsWPN111 is a piece of garbage

Pros: It worked for 48 hours.

Cons: After 48 hours, it stopped working. It frequently locked up my computer and forced me to reboot. Google for this model - it has numerous problems (none of which are solved by upgrading the drivers).

Other Thoughts: Easily the worst piece of hardware I've ever purchased. Two thumbs down, way down.
