So I have been using this adapter for just over a week. My router is in the next room, 7 feet away, and while I do have continuous signal, I only get one bar out of 5 the majority of the time. I won't complain for the price, but I would be hesitant in buying this if you were using it at a farther distance from your router. I would try discovering the range it has myself, however I am using a desktop PC and not a laptop. Hope this may help others in their decision.

I attempted to load the drivers from the CD as well as the website, and both failed with the "has encountered a problem and needs to close" error message. There are no FAQs on the website. The product itself has no identifying model or SN on it. The unit I received yesterday has a warranty sticker on the back that says it expired last month.

I glean from the website this is a Chinese product.

I bought this so I could have all my computers on the internet at the same time. I had one computer that did not have a wifi connection, and this completed that.

I run a linux OS so when I saw this product was compatible with Linux I wanted it pretty bad. The install was easier than I had thought it would be. The CD that came with the wifi dongle had a linux driver on it, but I found it just easier install the 3070 driver from the internet.

the product itself works great, but the cd it gives you is hard to figure out on windows xp. The software is outdated but if you go to their website [...] you can easily download the software from a computer with internet acces, put it on a thumbdrive and install it onto your computer. after that all you have to do is select connection and put in the password.
so, you get what you pay for a great product, but sorry software, still money well spent i think and i bought two

I just ordered this device for my PowerMac DP G4 Desktop running OSX 10.5. I recently moved and I had to set the system up in a room with no ethernet access. The package arrived in 2 days (Thanx Amazon). It was a plastic sleeve with the USB device and a small CD-ROM disk and instructions for Windows - but no Mac info. I went to the Ralink website at [...] and downloaded the Mac RTUSB D2870-3.0.3.0 UI-3.0.0.0_2010_09_10.dmg file. I copied the dmg file onto a memory stick. After copying the dmg file off of the memory stiock and onto my PowerMac HD I opened the dmg file and installed the Ralink drivers and application. I restarted the PowerMac, plugged the Ralink USB WiFi device in, rescanned the available WfFi ssid's using Ralink's utility, found my D-Link router, clicked Connect, filled in my WiFi authentication info - and just like that my device was connected. I then had to go to the network preferences and add the Ralink fake ethernet service and that was it - I was connected to the internet. I'm downloading 10.5 system updates as I type this - pretty cool for 10 bucks...

I bought this adapter (10/15/2010) to replace my 54mbs internal adapter and have been pleased with it's performance...this is an XP OS, where I chose the ralink 2870 driver, available either on cd or directly from website. (as of this date, 2/23/2011, there is even an updated driver) Anyway, I am now able to get 65mbs from a trendnet wireless N router. For the price and performance, I couldn't be happier. Granted, I rate it 4 stars rather than 5 stars because the cd/driver software is not easily understandable. I just started looking on the cd and logically figured what driver package to use. Even though I was correct, I still investigated the website to be sure. I recommend best to go to the (ralink) website and look up the most updated driver available for your system.

5/14/2011 Update:
I've purchased a new router Tenda W268R 150Mbps Wireless-N Broadband Router 4 port Switch and I am now getting a full 150Mbps with better signal strength. I'm very happy with this adapter and it's continued performance...5 stars! Still, overall, 4 stars because CD and documentation is poorly written/setup.

This adapter is one best things that I have ever purchased. It does exactly what you expect it to (gives you WI FI) and it is very easy to set up. In Windows 7 it finds the driver for the device ass soon as you plug it in. In Windows XP you have to use the CD but it just takes a minute to do so.

I'm sure its expected at this point that this product isn't going to get a lot of blazing 5 star reviews. In fact the only reason I'm not sending it back is because it was cheap enough that it's not worth my time.

Pros: It does function under linux (SuperOS-Ubuntu 10.04), it does function-kinda, it will run 150mbps-within 10 feet of the router.

Cons: Miserable range, it (and the d-link DIR-601 I ordered at the same time) were purchased as a direct replacement for a similar linksys wireless-G setup. I wanted the extra speed for streaming Hi Def movies off my server. The router appears to be working fine in wireless-G mode with all of the other computers in the house, but this adapter is showing 1-2 bars without relocating the machine. Call it roughly 1/4 the signal strength I was getting with wireless-G. Also, it doesn't say realtek anywhere on the box, yet those were the drivers I wound up getting for it (after running the setup cd on a windows machine and having said machine recognize it as realtek). The linux driver (there was only one) I ordered from the realtek site needed to be unzipped and compiled, but functioned swimmingly after that.

All in all, I'm calling it a failure, although in it's defense I'm comparing a much cheaper setup to a Linksys setup that I've been using for years. It's also in a entertainment pc installed in a rack with a bunch of other electronics and power supplies, so that could be generating interference. I'm ordering another one with the external Hi-Gain antenna, since it's cheap too and it may be enough to get me to my magic 80% mark.

If you want easy and good, go find a Linksys one and spend the extra 10$
