Did NOT work with MacBook Air 6/15/2018 7:33:27 PM

Pros: Looks nice enough.

Cons: Looks like a nice enough adapter. However, I could not get it to work with my MacBook Air. So, I donated it to a charity to get rid of it, in the hopes that maybe, it might, just possibly work with a Windoze Pee Cee.

Overall Review: When I ordered this, if I knew what I know now, I would NOT have ordered it.

Perfect ! 2/27/2016 1:02:05 PM

Pros: I have an old HP laptop used as a Minecraft server for kids, the on-board Ethernet stopped working, so I ordered this Edimax adapter.
First I tried it on my HP netbook running Ubuntu MATE 15.10 Linux, I plugged it in and looked at network manger and it was sitting in there ready to go!

Then plugged it into the laptop Running Debian 8.30 (Jessie) splat there it was ready to rock.
Truly plug and play under Linux with the latest kernels, no disk or drivers needed, good product, I will be looking at Edimax products from now on.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Linux ready.
Need more eggs for this product.

useful gadget 6/21/2015 6:01:06 PM

Pros: Drivers are easy to locate on the manufacturers web site! What a relief. The hardware and drivers seem to be stable. Performance is very good considering it's USB 2 device.

Cons: This is not a big deal, but whenever I wake the computer up from hibernation with this adapter connected, I get a message about hibernation not having saved the machine state properly, I'm sorry I don't remember the exact message. In any case the resume proceeds normally.

Overall Review: Having an Ethernet connection, albeit via a USB port, is vastly superior to a WiFi connection. I bought this item to restore Ethernet connectivity on a laptop whose onboard Ethernet port was failing. However if your machine has a free PCIe or PCI slot, you'll get better performance by choosing a PCI or PCIe card.

Works like a charm 11/19/2014 9:37:25 AM

Pros: Small, inexpensive, automatically sensed and set up by both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I just purchased a second unit to keep with my Surface 2 Pro. The first was for my Lenovo Yoga. It comes in handy when I need direct connectivity for configuring routers, firewalls, and other tech devices that don't lend themselves to wireless configuration or connectivity.

Pros: Needed an extra ethernet port on the little atom board I'm using as a linux router, this device works great. Using Debian - Jessie (currently testing) and works without any issues. A note about Edimax, I've used their little usb wireless nubs and they seem to work great as well. Good quality and low price.

Cons: Its white :|

works on OS X (with new driver) 6/21/2014 1:49:01 PM

Pros: Works on new MacBook Air running OS X 10.9.2. Bandwidth seems fine. Great price.
