Linksys is Best of All Towards Wireless Products
by TonyBrowning on August 14, 2010
Pros: Since RangePlus,that must mean it has excellent Plusrange!!!!
If it works better than Netgear's wg111v3 with its 2 foot 10 inch signal extender cable.I'll buy it to find out because Linksys is the BEST in home networking to finding Wifi Hotspots.!!!
Cons: Not informing us on how long extender cable is and does RangePlus work with Wireless G?
Summary: I'll buy it to find out because Linksys is not the best of the best but the BEST in home networking or finding Wifi Hotspots.!!!How long is Linksys ...
Summary: I'll buy it to find out because Linksys is not the best of the best but the BEST in home networking or finding Wifi Hotspots.!!!How long is Linksys extender cable?I wish to inquire about RangePlus with varied packaged extender cable prices from 3 feet up to 100 feet if possible?Thus,making it possible to carry it all over the house,offices, or to my hideaway adjoining property without weather,construction blocks,trees interferring with my signal.
Isn't any faster than my old D-Link XtremeG PCI Card.
by Kenward42 on January 9, 2010
Pros: Easier to install than the internal PCI Wireless cards.
Cons: Just not as fast as I had expected. And, it continuously drops our secured home network, when a person is off the computer for awhile.
Book not as good as the cover.
by Stanley_C_Wong on December 23, 2009
Pros: Smallish, about the size of a thumbdrive.
Cons: The packaging does not really tell you the max speed, which is actually less than comparable products.
Sensitivity is even less than my laptop integrated b/g receiver. And this is from a "N" receiver.
Software is useless. I had to uninstall it.
outrageously egregious customer service
by ocean111 on February 10, 2009
Pros: Nothing. It does not work as promised.
Cons: Though the box claims it is compatible with Vista 64-bit, there is no driver to support 64-bit.
Summary: Bottom line: Don't buy.
Linksys will waste your time going through the motions of helping you connect, they will claim it doesn't work with 64-bit (but is compatible (...
Summary: Bottom line: Don't buy.
Linksys will waste your time going through the motions of helping you connect, they will claim it doesn't work with 64-bit (but is compatible (huh??), but you can pay 30$ (per incident) to connect with a "partner" who may be able to help.
Oh, if you do manage to get it connected, watch out it may blow your computer out and the connection won't last. I just think it is appalling to sell a product as 64-bit compatible that won't work and have support techs who, perhaps, are unaware or this problem. Sorry I bought on line, I'm going to out shipping cost.
I have both a 802.11n router and this adapter...
by ieain on January 15, 2009

-Supports WEP (64- and 128-bit), WPA and WPA2 (Personal and Enterprise) encryption security
-Compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000 (SP4), XP (SP2 or later) and Vista

Summary: Overall I would recommend this product to whoever is in search of a usb wireless N adapter, it also comes with and extension cable to get better signal. To any ...
Summary: Overall I would recommend this product to whoever is in search of a usb wireless N adapter, it also comes with and extension cable to get better signal. To any one who hasnt tried the 802.11 N wireless abilities, you are missing out Wireless N is far superb than all other IEEE 802.11 wireless standards which includes 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and now there is 802.11n. It will be a few years before this technology starts to become the standard use in the industry for example: public wireless access points at a starbucs or a large corperations. This is because it takes a lot of time and money to convert to new technologies, it will start soon, but it will just happen slowly as it does with most IT upgrades, like now windows server 2008 is out now and wont take hold with big companies for a long time for the same reasons, money is usually the main reason though. But, back to the topic on hand here, its plain and simple if your looking for a better wireless product that can provide download speeds that are about the same as a wired networks with CAT5e or CAT6 network cabling, then pick this up on your way home at most electronic stores like compusa or officemax etc...Dont forget if you want the full potential of this wireless N product your need a 802.11n capable wireless router. I suggest the Linksys WRT160N or the WRT610N dual band. http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/products/WRT610N
With wireless N if your close to the WAP(Wireless access point) you can get up to 270mbps at the wide channel of 40MHz and with Standard channel for longer range at 20 Mhz you get up 130Mbps which is still better than 802.11g. Personally I would suggest the linksys WRT610N wireless router to go with theLinksys RangePlus Wireless Network USB WUSB100, if you know anything about netoworking. But Ill save the details of that router for another review, so look for it on good ole www.cnet.com. For all of you out there, this has been a review by Nick Ouellette.

- Description: The RangePlus Wireless Network USB Adapter is the simple way to add or upgrade wireless connectivity in your desktop or notebook computer. Just plug it into your computer's USB port and enjoy incredible high-speed wireless network access while retaining true mobility. The RangePlus Wireless Notebook Adapter uses wireless networking technology to achieve extended range. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the range and reduce "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area. The robust signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections much farther than standard Wireless-G. And with MIMO, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. It works great with standard Wireless-G and -B equipment, but when both ends of the wireless link use RangePlus technology, the throughput can be increased even more by using twice as much radio band. Once you're connected, you can keep in touch with your e-mail, access the Internet, and share files and other resources such as printers and network storage with other computers on the network, wherever you wander. At home, you can surf the web or use instant messaging to chat with friends while sitting out on the patio. You'll also be able to connect with any of the growing number of public hotspots springing up in coffee shops, airport lounges, hotels and convention centers. Your wireless connection is protected by industrial-strength WPA2 encryption. The included Setup Wizard will walk you through configuring the adapter to your network's settings, step by step. Get connected with fast throughput, reduced dead spots, and increased wireless range with the RangePlus Wireless Network USB Adapter from Linksys.
