Seems to play loose with the reported connection speed. 12/29/2011
Small and definitely capable of being fast. Wireless to wired transfers between computers average 6-7 MB /sec in my super congested apartment complex, whereas G speed wireless was only capable of producing about 1.5 MB per second on rare occasion.
I am a little suspicious of the speeds this device reports to the computer. It seems to constantly say 300 mbps or 54 mbps depending which type of network you're on, and the speeds I actually experience don't come close at times, so bear in mind it will be faster than your traditional 802.11g adapter, but difficult to say how much faster it actually is without running your own tests. There are more than 30 available networks in range of our apartment, so I *really* doubt this adapter is connecting at the full rate.
The adapter has another constantly blinking blue LED I wish I could turn off.
Thank you for writing your review. Regarding the speeds you are perceiving, Even though a connection is connected at 300Mbps (Mega Bits Per Second) you still have other devices connected which can slow down the through put capabilities of the router. This is the same when using 54g or even 11b wireless connections instead of N300. You will notice a boost in speed when going from a G to an N connection but the amount noticed will be dependent upon how congested the router is with wireless connections.
