4 out of 5 eggsGet the Right Drivers! (Linux)

This review is from: NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Frequently offered as a FAR item on Newegg, this adapter is as cheap as they get. Fortunately, it works well and is supported under Linux IF YOU GET THE RIGHT DRIVERS.

Cons: If you just install this as a plug-and-play item under Linux, your Linux distribution will likely load the rtl8192cu drivers, which are not correct. They will cause this adapter to be slow and choppy at best, or not connect at all at worse.

Other Thoughts: First, get the RTL8188CUS drivers from RealTek's drivers page at http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/. Install them using the included install.sh. Then blacklist the incorrect rel8192cu drivers per your distribution's instructions (typically under /etc/modprobe.d). Done.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

This review is from: NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: It works

Cons: It was cheap. I should have saved my money because it is a piece of junk. Slowest transfer rate of any wireless usb network adapter I've ever bought.

Other Thoughts: Should have known better. You get what you pay for I guess.

5 out of 5 eggsAs Expected

This review is from: NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Small size. Installation media included. Connects every boot up without issue. Receives Wireless N (UVerse) network in my living room through a wood wall and a brick wall with usable speeds.

Cons: The white isn't my favorite, but I knew what I was getting.
Confusing CD installation menu, but not enough to knock an egg.

Other Thoughts: Paid $9.99 on sale. Using this on Windows Vista.

1 out of 5 eggsAlmost Worthless

This review is from: NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: It does "work".

Cons: It's incredibly slow. Webpages load like it's 2001, streaming video stutters, gifs fail to load - it's pretty much worthless.

This is with ~100% signal strength on a wireless network where other wireless devices work flawlessly. I don't know why this adapter is so terrible and it's not worth my time to troubleshoot.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Complaints, It does it's job.

This review is from: NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: No Complaints, It does it's job. I bought this because it was FAR and to try it out. Ideally i have Wifi on all my laptops, I bought this to use when i travel international and/or on machines where i don't have Wifi or Desktop (if i move it downstairs). for my sporadic use, didn't see any issues. It does what it's suppose to.

It's too bad that folks leave feedback only when there are issues or have problems. Therefore adding my experience with this product,

Cons: No Complaints for the price i paid.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it, even if it was free.

This review is from: NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Was free after rebate. Hypothetically. It's been months and I'm still waiting to get my rebate back. Newegg rebates might be the only thing slower than this adapter.

Cons: Slow, connection was extremely choppy. Trying different drivers didn't make any noticeable improvement.

Other Thoughts: My old USB network adapter broke, so I bought this to replace it. After a week of frustration and barely getting it to work at all, I literally used duct tape to repair my old broken adapter until I could order a replacement that actually functioned. I would have just returned this one, except I had already sent in for the rebate.

1 out of 5 eggsUSB WiFi that works, but with a lot of flaws.

This review is from: NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: This device connects to the WiFi network and works, kind of...

Cons: The device is very slow when connected to the Internet. When I first plugged it into the USB port (USB 2.0 port) it caused my video to malfunction and it looked like I was watching TV back in the 80's and 90's at 2AM wen the local stations would sign-off. I rebooted and the video was still messed up. I unplugged the stick and moved it to a different USB port and it worked correctly. The next problem I had was it would run very slow. I was trying to download multiple files (at different times) from Microsoft (ISO files) and other smaller files. The 4GB files wanted to take 1-2 days to download. After 6 hours of running at this speed, I pulled out a laptop with an Atheros WiFi card in it. I ended up downloading the same files in under 40 minutes on that PC. While downloading large files, I also had disconnection problems, I can't say that this is entirely the USB stick, because I didn't do further testing, but I presume it is since I have never had connections issues with any other computers or WiFi cards on my network.

Other Thoughts: It was a good price at $10, but I wouldn't buy it again. It'll get the job done if you absolutely need a WiFi card and don't have one, but I'd recommend going with a better card.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the trouble

This review is from: NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Free after rebate

Cons: Plastic everything, even usb connector.
No-name brand
Abysmal speed
Frustration quotient x1000

Other Thoughts: I'm not one to write reviews. I feel I should, just don't take the time. Today I will as a warning: Think again before buying this item.
Free after rebate? Sure I'll take a stab at it.
Brand I've never heard of before? Can't be all bad. Right?

This thing caused 2 hours of frustration, fist pounding and hair pulling.

Packaging:
Hey, points here for using a small cardboard box and not blister-pack crud and it's not a blank OEM box. Only positive.

Item:
Uh-oh, this thing is really light. What? There isn't a metal usb frame? Just gold connectors sitting over a plastic tab? Is this the new thing? Seems like it will break.

Install:
Pop in the disk, load the software and drivers, pop in the dongle, windows finds it and is happy with the drivers. Cool. Open wireless networks, hey there's mine. Enter WPA password.
FAIL.
Wait what? Enter WPA password.
FAIL!
Crud, maybe I changed the password. Log into router from another machine, verify password.
Enter WPA password.
FAIL!
Grrrrr. Fine. Lets do this WPS stuff. Push button. Push button. FAIL. WHAAAAAAAA? WPS pin code? Enter client code. FAIL. Enter AP code. FAIL
ARGH COME ON!
Ok. Calm. bad driver or firmware? Sure, go to website. download new driver. uninstall old software/driver. install new.
bonk-bonk-bonk. Huh? Device disabled? Fine, whatever, reboot.
Remove USB, Replace USB. FAIL. Windows driver is ok, software has disabled the radio.
.....
You sonofabeech....
RMA TIME!

UPDATE:
Ok had time to sleep it off.
Fine, lets try a different computer, different router.
Oh, you found the driver on the interwebs from windows? sure, go ahead. oh, you connected to this network fine because it's wide open with no security? huh, ok.
Internet works, but the speed is slow. Speed test!
.5/mb download, but 4/mb upload? What. Wired connection is 23/mb down and 7/m up!
ARGH I give up.
