Compatible with 802.11n Draft 2.0 for Incredible Performance
Using the latest 802.11n Draft 2.0 technology, the N+ USB adapter will give you outstanding range thanks to the protocol's smart MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) technology. Offering speeds of up to 300 Mbps, Wireless-N will give even the heaviest of Internet users something to smile about as they stream video, make VoIP calls, and download large music files without a hiccup.

And if you already invested in existing wireless peripherals, you won't need to replace them.

Elegant, Simple Design
The adapter features a slim, sleek, glossy-black design and offers two connection options: you can either plug the adapter directly into your computer -- a useful option for travelers who want to travel light -- or you can use the included stand, which can help optimize your signal by letting you place it for the best reception. The adapter also features two integrated LEDs for "wireless" and "security," letting you know your network status at a glance.

One-Button Security
With Wi-Fi Protected Setup, connecting your computer to a secure network is just a button-push away. The adapter also supports WPA/WPA2 and 64-bit and 128-bit WEP encryption, so you can be certain you're protected from hackers and snoopers.

When I received the Belkin Wireless N+ Router, I set it up it right in front of a window in my house. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CEYYFK/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_title) Setup was super easy and I turned on 802.11b/g/n to all transmit/receive at the same time. I also purchased a Belkin Wireless N+ 802.11n USB Adapter (Black) (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CF2TYC/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_title) and installed it in my brand new Dell laptop. The combination worked flawlessly, setup was super easy, and the security was a snap to set up.

I received at least four lights all over our one story house including 80' away through a number of walls. My new laptop's built-in N-card/antenna did not work nearly as well as the Belkin N+ adapter.

I took the laptop and the Belkin N+ Adapter for a walk while keeping the window and router in my line of sight. At approximately 325' from the router, I still had full signal strength! I finally lost the signal about 380' feet from the router.

I also tried the Belkin adapter with a 7-year old, 512Mb ram HP laptop and got similar results - full signal at 325'.

F5D8055 Very easy to install. Gets 270 Mbps through three walls (and around corner) at 60 feet. WORD of CAUTION: if you have Windows 7 do not use the disc to load driver. Download from Belkin Support to match V1 or V2. (it's on the adapter) I download it and was back online in less than 1 min.

I purchased two of these wireless network adapters for two different Dell Precision 390 systems. They both are running MS-Windows XP Pro x64 (64-bit). According to the sales literature, technical support documentation, and technical support personnel, Belkin supports MS-Windows XP Pro x64 for this adapter. Unfortunately, the support did not come on the CD (nor did support for over half of the versions of Windows Belkin says it supports). Logging into Belkin technical support site, I found the drivers and software for the adapter, downloaded it, and successfully installed it (according to the application and its logs).

Unfortunately (second one, are unfortunately like strikes?), after rebooting the network adapter still didn't have drivers. The Windows Hardware Wizard popped up and wanted to find the drivers, which on the recommended automatic it couldn't find them.

I contacted Belkin chat support (POSITIVE thing they are 24x7 for networking). Unfortunately (ah, third one, does this mean Belkin is out?), all they could do is parrot what the documentation says. Download and install this program and everything will work. Ah, it didn't work? Surprise, you're disconnected. Connect back up via Chat and disconnect again. Third chat, third reference number, and disconnect.

Fourth person says he'll need to send this to the next level. (What does Belkin require to realize a problem really exists?) I'm told to expect a call in 24 hours. 27 hours later, still no call. I contact Belkin again and they say keep waiting.

46 hours pass from the fourth person and I get a phone call. I take the person through everything. I tried this on two different MS-Windows XP Pro x64 systems.

Has worked fine. The router is on the far side of the house upstairs, approximately say 20-30 feet away through 1 bathroom, 1 closet and the floor to the downstairs where the laptop is. Have not used the stand yet, just have it plugged directly into the USB port on the laptop.

Belkin Wireless N+ USB adapter is easy to install and works. I got both adapters to work in 10 minutes and there were no further adjustments needed. My kids need the Internet to work at all hours and I did not want to run network cables to the second story. I really enjoy the 6' cable that comes connected to the USB stand so I can place the adapter closer to my AT&T U-Verse unit. Signal strength is really strong and no dropped connections when going to MySpace type sites. There are less expensive USB adapters units out there but they do not deliver the quality that this has. This is money well spent.

I have tried 5 different wireless adapters on my last two computers including two Belkins (my daughter broke the first one) and Belkin is by far the fastest. I bought this for use on my Vista machine, it installed easily and worked great until the computer itself died a month later. I bought a new computer with Windows 7, and discovered that the software that came with this adapter didn't work with Windows 7. I was able to download a Windows 7 driver and now we are back to very fast wireless action! This works way better (faster) than the Medialink and Netgear adapters I tried before this one.

I picked up the Belkin USB N Adapter at a great price during an Amazon lightening deal. I'd been looking for an inexpensive N USB Adapter for awhile but most of the ones I found were from brands I never heard of. Luckily I found this one from a reputable company like Belkin. I replaced an old USB B adapter and I get full bars now in the connection manager in Windows 7. My wireless connections are also more stable.

in my case, it didn't work with win7 64 bit. i spent 3 hours online researched on my laptop, a whole good afternoon wasted.
followed the instruction, ran the software/driver first, plugged in when i was prompted to do so, the led lighted up, but the machine refused to recognize it, told me to plug it in and then click OK, so i unplugged it, and plugged it in again, click OK, the whole installation process went from 0% done to installation completed in 1/100 a second, no file copied animated sequence, no hard rive activities, just went straight to the end, it then asked you to reboot your machine, i'm telling you, you cannot reboot it unless you unplug this thing from the usb port, my pc just sat there on the shutting down screen for a good half an hour, the moment i unplugged it from the port, it reboot. how can product like this even made it to the market is beyond me.
after reboot further inspection revealed there was literally nothing under program folder except a uninstall link. so naturally, it didn't work. yes, i saw the device in device manager and existed as an wireless network option under networking. but it is grayed out, and says disabled, i couldn't enable it, tried it many many times. also tried to use compatibility option (vista) to run both provided cd driver and belkin web download drivers to no avail. it is going back as a return. i want to play my online game dang it. belkin is bad, just stick to making power strip.
