Since that time I've used this only when I needed to troubleshoot a problem with the built-in wi-fi on my old laptop. The problem turned out to be my wireless router rather than the wi-fi card, but once I replaced the router I made sure that this adapter worked. Beyond this I haven't really needed to use this adapter at all since all of my devices have 802.11g or higher built into them.
My rating is four stars because I know that it works and has only needed the driver on the CD when I couldn't connect to the Internet. When plugging into a computer *with* Internet access, I don't even need the CD. With as little use as I've put it to, it still works and the signal strength has been fine, but I haven't really needed to test its capabilities beyond this so I can't give it a higher or lower rating.
My wifi card went out on one of my laptops, this was a suitable replacement for a long time until I got my new laptop. The range is great, I would say 20-30 feet before I see any sort of drop off in how well it can receive the wireless signal. I currently am using it for my mediacenter computer, I stream movies and music, as well as play online games from my living room with this little guy and it has never failed me.
I've used it with various Linux installations (Primarily Ubuntu), and various Windows installations; absolutely 0 install, all I did was plug it in, and it immediately worked.
The only problem I've ever had with it, and it's not so much a problem as a worry, is it does get a little hot. I found removing the plastic shielding (which probably isn't the best idea) helps dissipate the heat. I would recommend this product to anyone, especially at such a great price!
I loaded that chipset's driver from the Realtek web site and after some trouble, got it working and it seems to work well. It's warm, but not hot like some reviewers said it was. (Earlier version?)
It is working on a 500mhz Pismo g3 iBook running OS 10.4.11.
This is especially gratifying because the Pismo has no PCMCIA slot and AirPort cards cost so much and are such a hassle to install, I didn't bother to see whether it was even an option. No need, the Blue Proton got me connected for [...] including shipping. Who can complain?
Using the trouble I had, I constructed this installation instruction set.
Similar documentation may be on the CD, but I didn't need to look. I figured it out with minimal hassle.
Install the RTL8187 driver.
When told to reboot, install the USB wireless adapter, then click "Reboot."
Under the "Show" drop-down menu, select the "Ethernet Adapter (en2)" panel
Click "Apply Now" (no need to change anything)
Under the "Show" drop-down menu, go back to the "Network Status" panel
"Ethernet Adapter (en2)" should now be an option
Open Applications > RealTek USB WLAN Client Utility" (if necessary)
Click "Available Network" tab
Select a wireless network and click "Connect"
Under the "RealTek USB WLAN Client Utility" menu, select "Hide RealTek USB WLAN Client Utility"
You may want to click and hold on the Realtek crab in the dock and select "Keep in Dock" for easy access.
