I had been back and forth with HP for the last year about the wireless connection going on and off at the most inconvenient times. They never did solve the problem but this product did. I was worried that it would also be infected by the same issue since it had never been diagnosed. The last HP told me was that it was my virus protector. I didn't think that was it since I use Symantec Norton which is probably used by millions others.

At any rate, the instructions were clear, the connection never stronger. My HP wireless still goes down but this keeps on chugg'in along so I no longer have nasty disconnects. And for the price take the chance. It really works.

Tried to save a few dollars by buying from a 3rd party.
Don't! Still waiting for delivery a week later.

Should have used 2-day Prime and I'd be using it today.
Lesson learned.

The manufacturer commented on the review below
I used to have a linksys 802.11g PCI adapter, which worked flawlessly for years. A few months ago it stopped working. A sales person at local Fry's store sweet-talked me into buying a Amped 150N USB adapter. The hardware is nicely done. And it works after installation. Indeed I got good connection speed. And then the trouble started. Instead of using the native wireless driver built into the Windows OS, this 802.11n USB adapter requires a proprietary software from Amped installed on top of the Windows OS. Unfortunately this is where the problem is. The GUI of the software is very primitive, which is not a big deal since once it's running, you really don't have to touch it. The really bad part is that the software driver obviously didn't go through rigorous reliability testing. Ever since I installed the driver, I started to experience machine freeze, or blue screen of death (BSOD), to the frequency of almost once per day. Now I have switched back to another PCI wireless card and the problem is gone. A piece of advice: If it happens to you, don't even try to ask the company for help. Those first-line AE's will simply read the cue cards and find all kinds of excuses, and ask you to re-install this, uninstall that. It's a completely waste of time. Just get rid of it.

UPDATE: After removing the buggy Amped software, the computer also becomes more responsive. The startup time at each boot is noticeably shorter. Here is what to do: uninstall the proprietary software from Amped; download CCleaner from internet (completely free) and run a clean-up job of the Registry. Reboot and enjoy a cleaner computer with one less piece of crappy software.

SECOND UPDATE: It's been more than a month since I got rid of the crappy software this product installed on my computer. And the machine runs much faster, and the BSOD has long gone. I can't imagine any company can get away from selling this type of defective product at all.

Sir,

Our software only installs with Mac, or XP and has been tested on on both platforms. There is a setting in the application that will let you enable the Windows Zero Configuration Utility to choose you networks. Your issue may have been corrected by fixing errors in your registry that had no connection with the Amped Software. You should also update the all the latest Windows Updates. If you need any assistance with this you can contact our US based Amped Wireless Elite Support Team and we will walk you through the setup process.

I always love these adapters. This is my third one now. Makes building a desktop so much easier. I also sometimes used it on my old laptop that had to struggle to get reception. Whenever someone asks which one to get I will always recommend this brand

This one a plus..... It gave me the signal and strength needed to boost the video streaming. The built in wifi on the laptop only gives three bars. The big issue was the video lags when streaming. So I gave up and brought this one to try. I owned the SR1000 from them and it was good so decided to go with their usb wifi adapter. It sure gave what I wanted.....

Called their customer support and after almost 15 minutes, left a message for them to call me back. Three hours later, they did. Still the disk didn't work. Spent an hour with the guy, and when he transferred me to the guy he kept asking questions to, I was cut off.

Bought this because it was supposed to work on my admittedly old MacBook when its airport stopped working. No luck.

Purchased one and used with Windows 7 with no problems. Truly plug and play. Purchased one for my Vista based computer and nothing but problems. Spent lots of time with tech support to no avail. Final tech support was pages of instructions to basically change reg in computer to force the software to work. Decided to return and purchased Beiken. Plugged in and no problems.
Avoid this unit if you are running Vista!

Installation was easy on my pc (windows 7) but I'm only getting download speeds of around 2mps. The reciever is within 15 feet of the router, and in the same room. On my laptop, with a standard transmitter, I'm getting around 50-60mbps down and 50-60mbps up. It's quite frustrating.
