1 out of 5 eggsIt just doesn't work

Pros: good price, attachable antenna

Cons: No utility software, no connectivity

Other Thoughts: This device just doesn't work.
First off, it only comes with a CD that includes the driver set. The CD does not come with the utility software. Going to the device website, I found the utility software + driver. However the website download is very slow, very unreliable, and several times I had to restart the download for only 28 meg file.
Finally, after the drivers and utility software were both installed, the device found my network but it wouldn't connect to the internet.
My old device worked just fine. however I had to spend over an hour getting the old device to work because new utility software has a way of breaking old wireless adapter settings.
Overall, this device isn't really worth it. Not coming with the utility software is itself a turn-off, and it seems the device just doesn't want to communicate with your existing network to allow you internet access.
I'm using Windows 7, 64bit.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent, but poor quality.

Pros: Excellent driver availability and easy of install. Good signal strength through walls.

Cons: Crashes itself around every 15-20 minutes. Occasionally works for a maximum of 18 hours. Very unreliable.

Other Thoughts: It's a case of you get what you payed for. I'm sure this isn't a bad adapter for all. I'd suggest paying another 20 bucks and getting a PCIe card instead.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than most

Pros: I really like this little device. It works well on Linux, OSX, and Windows. I haven't had any problems with range, though I am usually not very far from my AP. USB is helpful for my devices without PCI slots. This is much better than a certain TrendNet PCI card I got that was total junk.

Cons: Only thing I can think of is the single antenna, but that hasn't given me any issues. Just a thought really.

Other Thoughts: Saw this on sale, so I thought I would finally get around to posting my review.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I purchase these long range usb wifi-adapters for my customers. My customers' laptops or desktops wifi signal will be at a 2 to 3 bar level. I install this unit and get 5 bar results. Always Great results.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great for single band wifi signals.

3 out of 5 eggsOK BUT.....

Pros: Cost, good price. good deal , great antenna, Linux friendly, good reception...at first.

Cons: All was great until about two weeks into ownership, i started notice my speed dropping radically , tested other networks to make sure it wasn't just mine. decrease in speed and connection seen across all wireless networks.
Then i noticed this Wifi dongle RNX-N180UBE was getting VERY HOT.
VERY POOR HEAT DISPERSION ON THIS DEVICE.

Other Thoughts: I will try and take the plastic cover off and add a copper heat sink, but most likely the prolonged heat has already damaged it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little adapter :)

Pros: Small USB adapter
Easy installation
Simple setup start to finish
Great speeds
Inexpensive

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace another USB wifi adapter that kept flaking out on me randomly after 2 years. Plugged in, had it installed and running in about 5 minutes. Better speed and range overall, my old adapter was B/G/N capable but kept fluctuating between 36Mbps and 103Mbps - this one is solid at 144Mbps all the time, full bars, no issues :)
