Pros very little
once I penetrated the multiple levels of "support" and secured an RMA and paid return shipment the replacement part ( which also broke) was sent quickly
Cons Unreliable product, broke within 30 days of initial installation, replacement lasted about 6 months never seen a high tech product with this level of unreliability. I have other Linksys products which I am happy with which lead me to this purchase
Summary Don't buy this product
Set up is no where near as easy as it should be. Abysmal support process I had to drag my computer to a LAN connection and was required to go through multiple re installs on multiple USB ports. Multiple techies asking the same questions off a script. They even asked me to try it on another computer ( not!) All to get a replacement for hardware that was clearly non functional. Then getting the RMA was an incredibly frustrating phone experience with no clear choices on the call centers byzantine menu. And you guessed it the replacement broke 6 months later.
"could be better"on by jeremy_2016
Pros keeps connection once you have it...
Cons signal and speed drops when connected to internet
Summary if i connect to a network that has no internet access it has nearly perfect signal and speed but as soon as internet is brought into the network signal usually drops to 2 bars and speed 11.0 mbps if im lucky 18.0 mbps
Pros ease of installation
Cons very weak signal.my old one worked a lot better.I liked the ease of installation,and the fact it was so compact,
but "no signal,no good"
Pros EASY INSTALL,QUALITY PRODUCT.
Cons NO PROBLEMS AT ALL.

"Great Device!"on by killface0
Pros Easy to Setup, Fast Connection
Cons None that I could see
Summary Great USB device! Only suggestion to manufacturer would've been to include some sort of sticky mount that you could set it in when connected to your desktop computer, instead of sitting on a shelf next to my printer.
