1 out of 5 eggsBAD

Pros: USB input

Cons: 6 months of use before it died compared to my linksys internal adapter that I switched back too upon this one's death... the linksys still works.

Other Thoughts: Buy linksys, not netgear.

3 out of 5 eggsOverheats

Pros: Works well until it gets too hot.

Cons: It overheats. I took mine apart and drilled vent holes in the plastic case like the netgear wireless n adapters have. You cannot have both Netgear wireless g and n adapter software installed on the same computer, because the wireless g adapter will no longer work. (Win XP)

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: When it did work, it worked relatively well for a G speed adapter.

Cons: Initial unit was DOA. The replacement unit wasn't much better. After working well for about a month, it would frequently disconnect after only a few minutes, and as others have said, it runs very hot.

Other Thoughts: I purchased a refurbished unit, and after the initial unit was DOA, the secondary unit, when it did work, worked well, however I wouldn't recommend rolling the dice on this unit at the normal price.

I've run into a lot of errors with this unit in a high-interference area, such as an apartment complex, even when adjusting broadcast frequencies and specifying the adapter's channel.

1 out of 5 eggsgarbage

Pros: none, really.

Cons: Like most netgear products this overheats quickly. Drops signal frequently. I get better speeds and more reliability tethering a WM phone. I can't even begin to say how irritating this adapter is.

2 out of 5 eggsWaste of $$

Pros: Connects to the internet, but thats about it

Cons: The drivers that came on the disc were worthless, I had to download drivers off netgears site to connect. The "wizard" or GUI is totally Useless. Got it for my brothers birthday gift, so he could connect to the internet and play online games. NOT GOOD for gaming at all. He gets connection interrupted every 5 minutes...

Other Thoughts: Seeing how the regular pci slots on the mobo wont work with network cards. he is stuck with this useless thing. I guess he will have to wait to til I can get him a new mobo.

4 out of 5 eggsCheaper Than Office Depot, etc

Pros: Extention USB cable in the bottom of the box allows for easy laptop connection, especially when all of my laptop usb ports are being used

Cons: None that I can think of, other than dificulty using the product with Windows Vista. I gave up after the software installed, but the equipment didn't work on my Vista computer.

Other Thoughts: Good product,

4 out of 5 eggsStill ticking

Pros: Cheap (I got two of these here or on woot.com for ~$10 each) and they still keep working! I've been using this daily for over two years now and can't believe it is still going based on the price I paid! I won't lie, one of them may not be working 100% at this poit but for the price you can't beat it

Cons: Position of the dongle can increase/decrease performance

Other Thoughts: I pinned mine to the wall with a USB cable to get the best signal

3 out of 5 eggsI have a newer version

Pros: My XP pro desktop computer has a WG111v2. The WG111v2 includes WPA2, works fine with a Cisco/Linksys E1000 router on 802.11g -- connection never gets "dropped." Has an easy, single-window web-interface with a few tabs -- easy to see all of the communications parameters or change the security settings.

Cons: I think things that work by "radio" should have external antenna jacks. For a USB adapter, I use a USB extension cord and hang the dongle from the top of the venetian blinds. Higher gives better coverage.

Other Thoughts: I have seen that WEP and WPA are considered insecure. WPA2 is considered "good."

Newegg doesn't list the WG111v2, today. Maybe tomorrow? Thanks for letting me put this review under the WG111US, which must be a very old model.
