4 out of 5 eggsWorks pretty well for stick.

This review is from: ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Adapter+USB Cradle, IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: Works well - nice upload/download speeds. Can in fact do 300Mbps when close enough and AP is set to 40MHz width.
Thoughtful inclusion of USB extension dongle for those hard-to-reach spaces.
Nicely styled.

Cons: This is the USB-N13 B1. The drivers for the earlier revision will NOT work. Newegg should have pointed this out and saved me a few BSODs.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, very pleased with the difference

This review is from: ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Adapter+USB Cradle, IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: I have several PC's in my house and all are Networked wireless that are in various bedrooms. I have always used the Netgear WNA3100 adapter and Netgear routers. This has done a satisfactory job for me. House is an older wood structure two story. With the Netgear adapters, the PC's upstairs typically connected to the router at worst ~81kpbs, but generally around ~120kpbs. To my surprise, this Asus N13 connects at ~150-180kpbs, and my file transfers confirms this little bit of speed increase.

I'm using this in the Netgear cradle, see cons.

Cons: The cradle extension is really short, it's about long enough to reach from a PC sitting on the floor, to your desktop, and then it doesn't give you much room to relocating. For this reason, I'm still using Netgear's cradle.

The light is SUPER bright in comparison to the WNA3100 indicator light. In a dark room, when it's flashing, you can easily see across the room, gonna have to blacken that out a bit.

Other Thoughts: Over all very please with this adapter. Setup was super easy. Ran the utility/driver CD that came with it and during setup you have the option to use the ASUS utility or the windows wireless utility. This made me happy. I don't like a lot of bloatware so selecting the windows wireless utility, it installs only the drivers. Very nice!

Bought these on sale, it's what made me try them, got two, wish I had bought more.

Gonna have to seriously look in the a new Asus AC router and see if combining bands will improve speed for me more.

2 out of 5 eggsAnother BAD Experience with Asus

This review is from: ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Adapter+USB Cradle, IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: The Cradle is Included

Cons: Asus Support

I contacted Asus support asking about Windows 8.1 drivers for this model. They took 5 days to respond to my email only to tell me that there are NO 8.1 drivers but there will be in the future.
"REALLY ASUS? Windows 8.1 has been out for 6 months.

Other Thoughts: Asus use to have the best support back in the 90's and 2000's but the support over the last 5+ years has gone away. The only thing Asus is any good at is making motherboards. All of their accessories have little to no support and they are terrible at getting drivers and firmware out to the consumer in a timely manner.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat, while it lasted.

This review is from: ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Adapter+USB Cradle, IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: Great speed and signal.
Works on my hackintosh.
Plug and play/works.

Cons: Lags in gaming when I'm in a skype call.
Lag out of skype calls.
lag out of games too.

Other Thoughts: NO idea what's happening. Reinstalled the drivers, used without the dock, still the same prob. It has a clear view to my wireless router, having the max range of my

45mbps DL and 5mbps UP, no reason for it to lag, I should've went for a pci express wifi instead. Possibly donating this to someone, if it's not fixed somehow.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter Than Expected

This review is from: ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Adapter+USB Cradle, IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: Easy to install
Windows 8.1 driver on CD

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My desktop is upstairs and router is downstairs. Throughput was about 3 MPS on installed desktop NIC. After installing the ASUS USN-N 13 (5 minutes... tops), throughput jumped to 15 MPS, more than enough for what I need.
