Pros Goose Egg, Zip, Zero
Cons bought this from Best Buy bcs the BB rep said it was the best thing for my high speed cable network. It also happened to be the most expensive one.
I've been trying for a couple hours with no success. First, the "manual" shows tiny screen shots which are
Summary Don't. just... don't
"Forget it."on by jusford
Pros Connects to net.
Cons Doesn't maintain connections.
Summary Wish I would have read more reviews before making this spontaneous purchase. Got it loaded and connected. But error's when shutting down and doesn't recognize when starting back up. I believe it's fighting with microsofts software to make the connection. Going to explore other options.
Pros None. To be fair... I never got to use it.
Cons Difficult/complicated to install.
Summary One hour with lame tech support and come to find I have to uninstall my Kaspersky, download new software from Netgear onto my thumb drive with a computer that has internet access, load it onto my desktop, install Kaspersky again and then "hope it runs well." REALLY? Much faster to return to Best Buy and try something else. This time I will do some research first.
Pros It loads into the computer easily if you let Microsoft do the work.
Cons It constantly causes movies to stop and the lip-sync is way off even during the lower viewing times. My test was approx. 15 feet from my Netgear N router. Now I see why so many of these are for sale "refurbished."
Summary I did a premature review on this adapter a couple days ago. I'd like to correct it. As another reviewer put it....DON'T BUY IT. If you do and you watch online videos, you'll be sorry.
Pros it really does have a quick connection. but i am using windows seven for many beneficial reasons so i cant use this adapter....now i gotta get my hands on my dlink hockey puck on a string
Cons doesnt connect with windows seven
Summary overall a really reliable and fast usb adapter. small and gets a really good connection. i used it on one of my other comps and it worked great but my desktop has windows seven and it isnt compatible...but oh well....just gonna have to go find one that is. havent tried gaming with it tho...that will b its real test im sure
