This review is from: TRENDnet Wireless N 300 Mbps Mini USB 2.0 Adapter, TEW-624UB

Pros:

The only real pro to this adapter is USB capability, allowing for an adjustment for range. It didn't work will for me so I can't say much else good about it.

Cons:

At first, the adapter worked with a G capable router but would consistently disconnect when attempting to transfer a file over 50mb. When I changed to a draft N router (made by the same company) it stopped working right altogether. It would say it was connected and yet not connect to the web. It also lost signal over and over, continually scanning for a signal - all while only 8 feet away from the router! This product also runs hot and is larger than the box and pictures seem to indicate. Ended up RMAinf this product for the PCI version.

Other Thoughts:

Part of the problem with this adapter is that it uses a topdog chipset made by Marvell, whereas most of Trendnet's other products use an atheros or ralink chipset - my draft N router from them has a ralink chipset. This may have been a cause of my problems. Also, this adapter is only draft n 1.0 specs instead of draft n 2.0 (though it is listed at wi-fi alliance's website as 2.0 capable though Trendnet has no software updates available for it - go figure)
