By Mat on Oct. 8 2011
I had issues with it at first, but now it's fine. I figured out we need to uninstall any anti-virus and firewall before installing it or it won't work. Disabling the properties isn't enough. You need to uninstall it.

I found that the socket, because of the wire, amplifies the range of the adapter; just like the mp3s that uses the headphones as an antenna for a radio. The adapter could not reach my signal until I plugged it.

So, when I finally made it work, it worked well. In fact, it works well (even with USB3!), I'm using it right now to post this review.

P.S. I use windows 7 64 bits with avast and zonealarm.

Thanks a lot, Mat
