If you use these encryption methods (e.g. WEP, WPA-TKIP), you will experience the data rate will drop to 54 Mbps.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent!

Pros: Works great. Plugged right in, picked up a strong signal. No complaints!

2 out of 5 eggsDied After 3 Years

Pros: Well known brand with most reviews. Prompt tech support.

Cons: Died after only 3 years. I bought this based on the number reviews but it turns out that it will not last under moderate use. Speed has been unstable even with the numerous Rosewill driver update since day 1 of ownership.

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: Worked absolutely fine for the first 2-3 months.

Cons: Started to disable constantly and drop signal for hours at a time after 3 months.
Each time a download would exceed 3 MB/s it would disable itself and would take 1-3 minutes to start again

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Easy to install, and very convenient! Can be plugged in directly via USB, or left on top of desk on stand. Comes with a USB cord to plug into computer for those wanting to have it free standing. Connects perfectly, with full bars, and with no issues with walls or range. No connection issues whatsoever, and connects, for myself personally, at 130 Mbps.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Very easy and convenient, would definitely recommend this! Huge bang for your buck!

1 out of 5 eggsStopped working

Pros: Worked for 4 days

Cons: On the fifth day it went in/out of connection. This weekend there was a patch for Win 8.1 and I am guessing thats what killed it. I uninstalled the drivers and everything on my computer associated with the product then reinstalled. Worked for 5 min then out totally. This is the second one I owned and this one is a dud. I gave the other one away to a friend and had no issues from it.

Other Thoughts: Would be great if this was 3.0 compatible.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, for a time

Pros: Worked wonderfully for upgrading my wireless-g laptop to get faster WiFi speeds
Range of the antenna picks up networks that other devices can't

Cons: The USB plug is wide, if your USB connections are close together this may end up blocking 2 ports.

Other Thoughts: After about a year of light use the fastest download speed from speedtest was just under 1Mb/s, on an older wireless-g adapter on the same network I was able to get 6Mb/s. I have tried all sorts of troubleshooting to no avail, something is wrong with the hardware.
