Pros: This adapter works great. My concern when purchasing it was the Linux support. I had read that it "should" work because of the ralink chipset. I just want to let other linux users know that this adapter works fine. I use it on ubuntu, kubuntu and linux mint. For anyone interested, here is what you do: 1. Get the 2870 linux driver from the ralink website (not sure if I'm allowed to post links here, so I won't) 2. Edit the the following two lines in the os/linux directory located in the ralink tar file: Change this: HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=n To this: HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y (note the y at the end) Change this: HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=n To this: HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y (note the y at the end) 3. From a terminal navigate your command prompt to the extracted directory from the ralink tar file and issue the following command: sudo make && make install That's it! You should now...see othe

Cons: Does not come with linux drivers...(but that's ok, I found them ; )

Overall Review: I ran out of room in the Pros box. OK, you should now see the driver under Restricted Drivers, if not just reboot. This is what worked for me and I've no problems and great signal and strength from quite a good distance away and through a concrete wall, a floor and another wall.
