5 out of 5 eggsUpdated - Vista

Pros: 1) 2 Axis USB connector is really functional in tuning and positioning, 2) Uses RALink Technology chipset which updates drivers via Windows Update [no driver or install hassles with Vista!!!!], 3) Price, price, price, 4) I get a full connection thru walls, floors where others have failed.

Cons: 1) Use Vista's connection manager instead of the RALink software that's included.

Other Thoughts: CNet Technology has a bunch of cheap and innovative products. I really wish Newegg would offer their IP cameras and CNET's new WAP's with wifi addressable thumbdrive storage.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Vista

Pros: Installed on Vista perfectly on a USB 2.0 port. Nice inclusion of a two-axis pivoting USB extender - can be pretty much oriented in any position with this 3 inch extra. Great addition to Vista.

Cons: In the Vista tray the utility icon reads the signal strenth in terms of the color of an "R". Took me a bit to figure that out.

Other Thoughts: CNet Tech is now (2006) owned by Pegasus Wireless (PGSW) which makes a complementary wireless line and media extenders. Will be interesting to see what they cook up.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for Ubuntu

Pros: When Ubuntu Feisty Fawn came out I had so many problems configuring my laptop Broadcom (bcm43xx) card, it was not funny. It use to work in the old version of Ubuntu (6.06) but it is broken with Feisty. First thing mentioned everywhere is that Ralink based cards are fully supported. It will not work out of the box, but you just need to get the linux drivers compile it and configure it. After that it works like a charm!!!! This dongle uses a Ralink rt73 driver.

Cons: Does not work with Ubuntu Network Manager. Not recognized out of box by Ubuntu.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I bought this for my older iMac. It works in Panther 10.3.9 with the Ralink drivers. It has better signal strength than the D-Link DWL-G122, another Ralink chipset!
