5* More than adequate
Reviewed by Ian on 27/02/2009
Bought for use with my laptop which has always suffered poor performance due to the location of the wireless router. Using this with my new wireless N router has more than doubled my average speed from 45mbps with wireless g to an average of 110mbps.

Installation was smooth and quick with no issues (I still use XP). Excellent value at its current price.
5* Great Product

I purchased this product for my Compaq Laptop which after a short space of a year, the wireless card had a problem and stopped working. After looking for a solution to the problem, I found many more were suffering with the same problem. So the only way to fix it was to purchase an External Network Adaptor. After looking around, this was the best for the money so decided to order.

I ordered the product on Wednesday at 11:40 PM and received the item on Friday at 1:35 PM. Very fast delivery!

Setup was very easy. Simply install software, then plug the device in and you can connect to the internet as normal. The adaptor and its USB stand is made of very high quality materials and is overall a very stylish piece of kit.

If you want a good quality Wireless USB Adaptor, for a great price then this is certainly the way to go.

5 Stars!

Great bit of kit and have superb range through the house.

Slightly strange that a few months ago this was only £14.00 and is now just under £30.00.....

This Adapter was easy to set up. Less than 10 minutes to install on two operating systems. The Adapter works fine, no interference on any channels as reported. Works 100% with the BT Home Hub 2.0. A VFM buy! One thing to note, the Delivery Charge is cheaper on DABS.Com. Please note BT Shop.

Setup easy enough. Works fine (had 2 drop outs in a week where I had to "repair" it to get it working again. Have two delivered on same day - possibly different chipsets, so it looks as they mix and match a bit. Given the cost I'd say pretty good value for money
4* Good product
Reviewed by Mike on 16/01/2010
I bought this product for my desktop that is running Windows 7 64bit. I had an old Belkin G USB adapter that was not compatible with Windows 7 so I was forced to buy a new one. For the price I paid (£20) is was about the same price as a G rated one, so I went for the N rated one even though my router still G (future proof my desktop).

I was concerned that the Belkin N wireless adapter would not work on Windows 7. Says on the product and this website it works with Vista, so I was fairly confident it should be ok.

Plug it in, Windows detected it but could not automatically install the drivers, I had to manually install them via the device manager, update drivers and then find the Vista32 or Vista64 drivers under the InstallationFiles folder on the CD.
