I later tried the key on a windows laptop and it ran perfectly fine, so it's just a linux issue. I would stay away from it if you're looking for wireless on a linux machine.
1- Plug in device
2- let the install fail
3- put the disc in
4- goto device manager and find the device
5- right click on the device and update drivers
6- browse for the drivers on the disc, make sure you use the drivers for your OS
7- finish install and use wireless!
Sure it is irritating when the disc it comes with doesnt work the way it is supposed to, but for 5$ I seriously can't complain about the extra 10 minutes it took to get this device to work.
Installation was as difficult as others have said as the drivers didn't work for me either. I had to download the ones from the Realtek site (as other reviewers have mentioned).
Once the drivers were installed and I was finally able to get to the internet, this device worked ok but never performed as well as it should have. It has a short range, poor signal, occassional drops, and the download speeds never approached 150Mbps. We have 110Mbps service and the most I've ever gotten was 55 through this device. 15-20Mbps was much more typical.
After 3 months of use, where this device worked just well enough to not get thrown away, my download speeds have dropped to 2-4Mbps at best. Reinstalling the drivers, power cycling, swapping USB ports (watch out because it gets very warm), and rebooting fail to fix the download speed problem. Compounding this, there is no support for Esky products, and not even a website for this product that I could find to help troubleshoot my problems (other than Amazon's). All of the other computers in the house(several PC laptops, 1 Macbook, and an iPad, even the Playstation 3) get 70-100Mbps download, this one chugs along at 2-4 and apparently there's nothing to be done but post here and buy one from a different maker.
It's too far past the 30 day return period for me to get a refund, but I should have spent the $10 on a burrito instead of this thing.
Don't buy this device.
