Pros: It's got a fast downlink, and it is actually a clever design, more manufacturers could provide a USB extension/base.
Cons: 802.11n uplink (upload speed) is horrid with my router. I have two of these, one in a Win7 x64 and one in a Win8.1 x64. No matter what drivers I try, or router firmware revision, the uplink speed is around 0.3 to 0.5 mbit. This affects not only WAN (internet) speeds but LAN (home network) speeds.
I'm willing to guess this is a compatibility issue with my router, the Buffalo WHR-HP-G300N. However, all other 802.11n clients work fine.
Other Thoughts: I could not find anything on the internet about this problem, so it might just be a weird compatibility issue with my router. But I thought I would bring it up here.
