"Free High Speed Internet."5.0 starson by DCizzle
Pros: I'm always on... Even when sleeping.
Cons: 3 weeks in... None so far.
Summary: Had two people arrive at my house with laptops... Later came to find they were picking up an internet connection. Being jealous and forkin' out $65/mo with comcast... I decided to make this simple purchase and push my luck for a connection.
Ordered from newegg.com, arrived promptly. Had it hooked up within a minute... And sure enough it's picking up a signal from some where in my neighborhood!!?!! I'm in the basement as well on a desktop. My signal strength is LOW, but I stream between 1mbps and up to the full 54mbps. Even low speed is as fast as my comcast wired modem, so I'm not complaining.
It did hop signals at first... But I download the firmware update and I was instantly connected at a safe 6mbps-18mbps.
It comes with a 4-5ft USB extension cable... So I ran the wire up behind the desk and far up the wall as possible.
Simple, effective, reliable... And FREE internet.
