My netgear router provides an n wireless signal which is faster than the g signal my laptop could receive.

All that to say, don't buy this product, some people have had no issues and some people have had nothing but issues...don't take the gamble, just get something else.
M. Smith
Sometimes I could unplug it and plug it back in to get my internet to come back on and other times I would have to reboot my computer to get it working again.

This is a good item, if you're having speed/connection issues after install you might need to tweak your router depending on your situation.

To understand how this will perform in your specific situation you have to know something about networking.

The the factors that influence wifi speed are:
1-5Ghz N has trouble going through walls (the denser the wall the worse it gets).
2-using mixed mode(g and n) is more likely to bring down connection speed and cause connection issues.
3-having a lot of "wireless" activity can also bring lower speeds and connection problems(you can fiddle with this by chosing a channel that performs better).

I have a cisco E3000 (N on 5Ghz and N on 2.4Ghz, both with a different Network ID)and a connected belkin N150 as an access point for G on 2.4Ghz with also, its own network ID.
I have devices with N on 2.4Ghz, G on 2.4Ghz end with the AE1000, N on 5Ghz.

This setup gives optimal speeds and solid connections after finding the channels with the best performance(least interference from wireless noise).

My walls are "pre-war" (cement on lathe)and thus 5Ghz(and to lesser extent 2.4Ghz) "killers". There is one long hall and I use the AE1000 to connect to the router at the other end of the apt..
Between the living room (where I want to stream with the AE1000) and the room where the router is located there are 3 cement on lathe walls and I live in NYC so there is always a lot of wireless competition(20+ networks broadcasting their id and surely some that are not broadcasting their id, wireless phones, microwave ovens, etc.).

My speed readings are:
-N-5Ghz-AE1000 inside L.room ->~118Mbps
-N-5Ghz-AE1000 by hall->270-300Mbps (13Mbps before finding a clear channel)
-N-2.

After having installed a Linksys E2000 wireless router and not being able to connect to my Compaq laptop I was told by Linksys customer support that I needed an AE1000 for my laptop. I decided to get the refurbished AE1000 because of the price and the fact that it had a 90 day warranty. I do not regret this decision at all. The unit looks brand new and works fine. Installation was a breeze and quick. Given the price differential between this unit and a new unit, this is a super deal.

I ordered the refurbished AE1000 Wireless Adapter from Electronica Direct (via Amazon) after being reassured directly by Cisco techies that their refurbished items are every bit as good as the brand new ones (at half the price!). Boy, were they wrong!!! The item arrived yesterday (after about 9 business days - a bit slower than promised). I followed the installation instructions, disabled my Smart Firewall and Anti Virus program, installed the setup program from the installation CD and then connected the adapter, but Windows 7 Home Professional (32-bit) could not properly identify the device. In fact, it said that the device malfunctioned. The set-up software kept asking me to connect the device to the USB port, even though it was already connected. Rinse, repeat! There were no blinking lights or any other signs of life on the adapter itself. It did not matter which USB port I pugged it into. It was dead, dead, dead!!! Windows Device Manager certainly noticed that "something" was plugged into the USB port because it registered an Unknown Device with the infamous yellow exclamation mark indicating trouble. Removing and reinstalling the drivers did nothing whatsoever.

One other observation, the installation disk comes with a Windows 7 Tools folder, but it seems like it is only for the 64-bit version and not the 32-bit version. I do not know why this is and since I could not install the adapter, I could not check out the ramifications, if any.

Bottom Line: I contacted Cisco Online Tech Support (routed to India, of course), but they were not very helpful and did not have any meaningful suggestions so I contacted Elecronica Direct Customer Service and they were very nice and apologetic about it. They offered to overnight a replacement. I will post again to confirm if, indeed, I receive it overnight and also with an update if the replacement works or not. Stay tuned....

I paired this wireless adapter with my Asus N66U wireless router and the speed is great. Signal strength is strong on the second floor of my home and I have not had any issues with dropped signal since installing this adapter.

Pros:
Works fine with Windows 8
Easy to install
Includes base / USB extension cable
Blue LED matches other modern electronics
Strong signal and fast speed. No problem getting 50Mb download speed on my 50Mb connection from about 60 feet from my router.

Cons:
The base does not really stay put since it is so light weight

First of all, if you're like me, your wireless stopped working in your desktop computer. First thing's first, go to Start->Settings->Control Panel->Admin Tools-> Services and scroll to the bottom and make sure WLAN AutoConfig is running. If it is disabled, right click, go to properties, and switch it to automatic, then OK. Then right click and start it, otherwise your wireless won't work.

Now to the product. My old Wireless Ethernet card would not support the encryption on our N router. I purchased this as a troubleshooting step, and it saw the network, and once the WPA 2 password was in, we are back in business! Works like a charm!
