Pros I got this to use it to setup my Xbox live connection to my computer. I didn't want to go the whole router & network route. I saw this review on G4. Got it, plugged in & ran the install. It auto configures everything for you. Connected right u
Cons The only drawback is (at least on my machine -- Windows Vista) you have to rerun the program included on the drive to launch the manager. Again, This could be something I'm doing wrong, but it's a small drawback.
Summary Bottom Line, It works as advertised. Again, This is a really cool product and very quick and simple alternative for people that want to go with a wireless network without the engineering degree to set it up.
Pros Doesn't work with WIndows 7 64bit.
Cons Doesn't work with WIndows 7 64bit.
Summary Doesn't work with Windows 7 64bit. Tried everything on their site. Spent 3 days and endless hours searching on google but no luck yet.I have tried them all. All of the patches for win7 32 bit or 64 bit do not work including the one from the Korean based website. They should provide a new install package and stop with all of this nonsense since Windows 7 is used widely now.

Pros Used to work on my XP machine and was very convenient.
Cons Can't install and configure on Windows 7 64 bits.
Summary The official website has broken links. The company tries to sell the new version and won't support his version of the hardware.
Given the size of the installation (3Mb), what prevent http://www.synetusa.com to propose a complete new download that supports Windows 7 64 bits?
Pros good for internet sharing, conveniant
Cons should say something good for the product?
Summary If you use win7 and purchased windy31,Hi guys we have new windy31 model came out windy31N
Go to http://www.synetusa.com
And download the patch file for window7.
If you are using 32bit download 32bit or if you are using 64bit download 64bit files
And you also have to download windy31enabler file
after you see the error code says ?This is not supported OS.? On the small pop up window. Please click the ?OK? and while the GUI is on, download the ?Windy31 Enabler? and copy and replace it at ?c:\program files\Windy31_manager\common?
Please click the ?Switch to Gateway mode?
disable the following programs while you install Windy31 : 1) Firewall 2) AntiVirus 3) DVD ram driver 4) NeroInCD.
And if you are using intel core duo processor it might won?t work?because windy31 do not support that CPU

This model is 3 times faster than the previous one.
The previous model is 54mbps but this new model is 154mbps
Is supports 802.11b/g/N!!!
And of course it fully supports windows 7
But you need a patch file for 64bit windows7 T_T(it only needs to be installed once though ?)
you can check it from our website http://www.windy31.net
Please visit us! And purchase it!
Updated on Feb 24, 2011Hello Dear customer, Windy31 is fully compatible with windows7 32bit and 64bit.
The Windy31B/G needs few steps to make it work in windows7. if you don't do those steps
it will not work properly. But our new windy31N does not need any steps to make it work in windows7.
So if you are using windows7 and don't want to install a patch file, plz purchase Windy31N instead of Windy31B/G. Thank you http://www.windy31.net
Pros Not applicable.
Cons Not applicable.
Summary Windy31's not the only player in this arena as you suggest.
Please check out the Hawking Technologies' version of the same.
