I again decided to try another TrendNet product after a successful first experience and am very satisfied with this Wireless N USB Adapter. It was set-up in about 5 minutes, probably less. Using Windows Vista, I installed the software from the CD (as stated in the quick-set-up directions). After the installation, I plugged in the Wireless N USB Adapter, it took about one minute to setup the security on the network, identify, and connect.
This was all done on a desktop computer. It works great and there is a noticeable difference over the Wireless G. The quality and reliability of their products are outstanding. I was also fortunate to purchase it for about $23 through Amazon.com. I see the price has gone up at least $10 or so, but it's still a great deal.
The built in AirPort card in my Powerbook barely connected and often dropped the signal. This Trendnet adapter does much better. Where the AirPort card (barely) found the one AT&T Wireless, the Trendnet is finding at least six signals. The provided short USB extender cable is bendable so it can be used to aim the Trendnet at the WiFi source to get a better signal. I was surprised how much stronger the signal could be made by just a small adjustment in the position of the adapter. Vertical? Horizontal? Left? Right? No problem.
WARNING: The SPECS are clear. This adapter does NOT receive WiFi on the 5 ghz band where I've set my home Airport Express. As there are only a couple of adapters that will even work on Mac, wasn't much choice for me. But if you have a Windows machine, you might be able to find an adapter which does both 2.4 & 5 ghz.
The built in AirPort card is much easier to "manage." This one takes a bit of "twiddling." Well within reach of anyone who has a computer, but if you're just terrified of anything that doesn't work exactly right out of the box, find a friend who can help!
As soon as it was connected onto the Internet it immediately informed me of a firmware upgrade.. which I did.
I wanted this adapter to be fitted out of sight. So my choice was to install this directly at the rear USB connection. Unfortunately this is not possible because you can not fully insert this into the USB connector. A small piece of the plastic housing of this Wireless adapter is in the way. So I just sanded the small piece of this plastic off and now the USB adapter fit's perfectly. I am Really happy with it. I made a good choice.
My son's signal strength has always been poor in his room, ranging from 2 to 3 bars (out of 5). He plays World of Warcraft regularly and uses Voice over the Internet and has complained regularly of the connection problems he has faced. I saw this on sale during the Black Friday sales and I grabbed it up for his birthday. He was quite happy to see it and he plugged it in, configured it and now has 5 bars of connectivity! Nothing else was changed in his setup or positioning of his computer. I am very happy with this product.
CONS: I would have given it 5 stars if it had a USB base and extension cable like the DLINK has. Instead, this ships with a little 3" cable to extend the USB port out for this adapter.
Sometimes, you get a deal, and sometimes, well, sometimes u just get what you pay for.
