Though it's okay for normal web-surfing, during intense downloads it constantly drops connection and does not reconnect back, though it should.
I have to constantly disconnect and reconnect manually, sometimes every minute. This irritated me so much that I even bought a foot-long +12 db omnidirectional antenna-booster and attached it to the adapter. Tiny bit better, but not a huge leap in performance.
I guess, one day I will have to just drill all my walls across the house and lay down LAN cable straight from the router.
First off, the card uses strictly it's own drivers. These provide absolutely no benefit to the average user. In order for a network and password to be remembered, it must be manually set up in the 3rd party driver software.
About a month after I started using it it began to crash regularly. On average twice a week, though sometimes multiple times in a day. Whenever it does, it has overheated and cannot connect to any network. It becomes hot to the touch. When it does crash, it will continue crashing until it has cooled down again. This often means I need to disable or unplug it for 15-20 minutes. People complain when their web page loads a few seconds too slow, 15 minutes is a long time.
Do not buy this product. Save yourself the trouble and spend a few extra dollars on a product made by a more reliable brand. I'm sick of Realtek products.

Have been using it forever. Sometimes disconnects but I can't say its the adapter itself. Reaches all the way across house (basement to upstairs corner).Published 16 months ago by Cody
Works great on the Raspberry Pi B+ using OpenELEC. Plug and play!!! Having the antenna helps when there is a weak signal.Published 18 months ago by David Fishback
Still works after years of use. No dropouts, but then again, it's 20ft away from my router.Published 18 months ago by Amazon Customer
