TRENDnet TEW-649UB Mini Wireless N300 USB Adapter
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Works with Linux with a minor tweak 01/10/2011

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-649UB Mini Wireless N300 USB Adapter

Pros: This adapter will work with Ubuntu Linux. The solution is on Launchpad, search for RTL8192SU. Download and copy a firmware file to the specified location, insert the device and restart. The blue light will come on and you're in business. The next version of Ubuntu (11.04) will support this 'out of the box'. Signal strength with an ActionTec router is surprisingly good. I was getting 67 mb./sec until I disabled an intel 3954A/B/G(I think)notebook PCI adapter then my speed jumped to 130 mb./sec. Mixed networks-b,g & n mixed can result in lowered n speeds. I do have a Brother wireless g MFD that don't seem to cause network speed reductions.

Cons: It can run warm on some machines.

Other Thoughts: Nice size for notebooks.
