I glean from the website this is a Chinese product.
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.
so, you get what you pay for a great product, but sorry software, still money well spent i think and i bought two
1. As many reviewers pointed out, the CD that came with the package was useless.
2. I had to guess the manufacturer and the model number to download the right driver as it has no logo or serial number printed. I got lucky on the third downloaded file by searching for "Ralink".
3. The most I could get out of the adapter is 54 Mbps. It could be a limitation on my Verizon FIOS router, but I don't know for sure.
4. The adapter is LARGE and takes up two USB slots if they are side-by-side. I picked it over adapters with antennas thinking it would take up less space. I was wrong.
5. When it was inserted in a bottom slot on the back of the desktop, the signal strength reads "low". When I moved it to a higher position, signal strength improved. I get "excellent" signal on my laptop. There is no reason the external adapter should get poorer reception.
I wanted to stress that for the price I paid, this adapter works as expected. Not a top notch adapter, but I am only using it on a desktop machine that I use as a file server.
