        This one is self explanatory. Load the driver, plug it into an available usb port and boom... you've got an Ethernet connection. Works just like the description said it would.

                I bought the Linksys USB Ethernet Adapter for use in my MacBook Air. I unboxed the adapter, connected it, and within seconds my connection was working perfectly -- no drivers needed. Great adapter and works great in the MacBook Air.

                  My laptop ethernet card failed and instead of replacing it with another, I purchased the Ethernet Adapter by Linksys. It has preformed beyond my expectations and was less expensive than the replacement ethernet card. Great product, I would recommend this to anyone needing an ethernet connection source for their computer.

                          We were in a pinch to simultaneously connect to 7 disparate networks and decided to try these USB adapters. They work great, and are much cheaper than internal multi-port NICs. The computer was running Windows XP, which detected and installed a driver automatically for these Linksys adapters. No issues whatsoever.

                            I'm a computer tech and use the Linksys adapter primarily to communicate when network cards fail in stand alone pc's. Systems detect the adapter and load the drivers from the disk provided.
                            Communicates well with a variety of vendors routers.

                                    Have a bunch of dongles, found these to be most reliable/idiotproof. They work with no drivers on Windows, Mac and Linux. The gigabit ones are faster but they are far from gigabit and they're much more expensive.

                                            I bought this to connect a TiVO series 2 DVR to my network hub. Just plugged it in and it worked perfectly.

                                              Put the disk in to install, plugged the adabtor in and began to use my computer. It was than easy.
