Pros: Worked fine at first.
Cons: Tried to set my old ASUS router as a repeater; after hours of tinkering with settings couldn't get the RT-53 it to log on the internet, after a couple of factory resets. Reset my old RT-N12 and it's working great as always. I've set up several wireless networks, but I'm not a serious techie, and life is brief. It's going back.
Other Thoughts: I guess I'm not so smart. Should have taken it back to xxx's as soon as I saw ratings on Newegg, but I thought I was smart. Not so smart, apparently.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot PCUSBW1150 WI-FI USB Adapter USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates
Pros: I got this for my daughter's hand-me-down old school laptop, with internal wireless G. It set up easily, and connected reliably from day one, it's tiny, and has a cute flickering light. She had been complaining her computer was slow, and in the process of a home remodel I disconnected the ethernet from my desktop and popped in the Patriot. Hooked right up.
Cons: Yes, it hooked right up - allegedly at 30mbps. Certainly not "up to" 150mbs, but still way faster than my cable modem's 10-20 mbps (tested on ethernet) right? Wrong. Real world hook up to the internet (with latest drivers) is 1-3 mbps. Really noticeably, doggy, annoyingly slow.
Other Thoughts: I should listen to my kid - I just though she wanted shiny and new, but when I hooked up the antique ethernet, she was happy. I've ordered a 300mbps wireless usb to try, and I guess I'll dig up the old 3-antenna Airlink monstrosity for my desktop. Mama don't allow them ethernet cables round here. Time will tell.READ FULL REVIEW
