This replacement USB adapter, chosen on price and on the number of positive reviews it received, arrived quickly and installed easily three days ago, two or three days after ordering. That ~24 Mbps connection speed almost trebled to 65 Mbps instantly. An equally important benefit to me: I can now disconnect other USB devices from my computer without losing connectivity.
Summary: excellent, inexpensive product that was the perfect solution for my purposes. Recommended for others in similar situations.
Note that this adapter does NOT have a WPS button, even though the packaging advertises this feature.
Very inconspicuous and sticks out maybe 1/2" from back of my laptop. Software was easy to locate and download on the mini-cd that is sent with the dongle(Win Vista). I did have a temporary dongle which I bought from Walmart at 4am when my stock unit broke and was doing research for a class and this one clearly has been better than the Cisco-Valet unit I purchased for around $40 on clearance(has since been returned).
This unit is more compact, which is less hassle than having a full size device like the Cisco hanging off my portable tablet PC. It is thus more flexible and the device management software is much better. typically 4 bars of strength at 20-30feet. Works as well on campus and does not dip below 3 bars at any given moment. Have owned unit approximately 2 weeks and decided to wait an ample amount of time to write a review and am very satisfied as should you.
Finally today I googled "gmyle adapter lion" and I found another Amazon review for a different Gmyle wireless adapter that talked about the drivers being on the Realtek website. Lo and behold, I went to the Realtek website ([...]), typed in the product number (RTL8192CU), scrolled to the bottom of the product page, clicked the software link, and found a driver for Lion! Installed the driver, restarted my computer, plugged in my adapter and a window popped up to connect me to my wireless network. Could not have been easier. I wish I had known about this when I first got the adapter - would have saved me a lot of frustration, so hopefully I can save someone else the same frustration I went through!
As far as the adapter performance goes, it seems on par with my stock Wifi card. I haven't used it much but so far I haven't noticed a difference in page load times or streaming video. I'll edit/update this review when I've used it more to include more actual performance observations.
