4 out of 5 eggsPoor Linux Documentation

Pros: This fits the needs for the different WiFi modes I could've used for basic use, such as connecting to an access point, or an AD-Hoc network. So yes, you can connect to your normal consumer router you more then likely have at home.

Cons: I had to jump through a few hoops, such as compiling the Ralink(this uses a Ralink wireless controller) drivers from source after downloading them from the Asus website, Which was easy for me(only three commands in Terminal). After installing the drivers, I looked at it's modes it's capable of, only managed, AD-Hoc and master mode were listed then the rest was followed by "...", which had led me to think that master mode would work, after telling HostAPD to use the Ralink driver, it didn't work. I then went to read any documentation on the different WiFi modes. I was unable to find ANY documentation for *Linux* whatsoever!

Other Thoughts: I was originally planning on adding this card into my home router(not a cheap plastic consumer router you'd buy as an OEM product), which would support dual-band at 300Mbps, and also support WPA2.. So, if you want to use any of the advanced modes I've found that the Atheros chipsets are a great choice for Linux users being they're open source and widely supported! I really hope this review helps Linux users determine if this will meet their needs, prior to purchasing this product.
