          Comments about Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter with 3x3 Antenna:

          I purchased the Linksys Dual-Band wireless adapter to use it with my Dell Optiplex PC USB port. I previoulsy had another brand that had less range and only went up to 300 Mbps. With the Linksys I get true 450 Mpbs connectivity. Is very, very fast and never any drops. Streaming is very smooth an no interruption. I use Apple Airport Extreme 5th generation as a router. I bought the routher from B&H as well. This combo workgs great for me. Highly recommended.

              Easy to Install and setup using the Linksys installation CD. Runs seamlessly at 144Mbps, very few drop-outs and when it does (usually when left overnight) it reconnects very quickly. Decent range; for example with my router in the basement this unit, on the second floor, gets "excellent" signal strength. Stand is useful for desktop use.

                  I bought this as my computer was at the other end of the house from my Internet router and I couldn't pick up the signal. I had already bought 2 other adapters but neither of then could pick it up. This one not only picks up the signal excellently but also gives me great speed. I would highly recommend this adapter.

                            Eliminated my network cable from running across the floor. I only get 144 Mbps even being less than 12 feet from my router. I don't notice an appreciable loss of speed though.

                              I have two in use to access the internet via a Lynksys EA4500 Router on another floor of my home. One adapter is installed on a notebook and othe other on a desktop. Windows XP shows both running at speeds up to 450 bps. Setup involved pulgging the adapter into a USB port and connecting to the home network. So far I am extremely pleased with the adapters and router and the performance of my home network. I have no complaints.
