Not recommended. Bought this so that I could transfer data faster than my 5 GHz wireless network when in a hurry. My wireless network is actually faster than this adapter. The average sustained transfer rate using this is only 10 - 12 MB/s, where as the wireless can reach from 12 - 17 MB/s. Not an issue with USB port or wiring because I tested with an ASUS 1-Gbps Ethernet adapter on the same computer and USB port and can reach speeds of 40 MB/s.
