Poor reception quality under Windows and Linux
on April 30, 2014
I chose this adapter based one some of the positive feedback over here. Although it worked as promised under Ubuntu 14.04 with the default driver however beware of the fact that the provided driver is outdated and is not compatible with newer Linux kernels like that of Ubuntu 14.04. The main issue with this item is not the installation though, it is the very fact that it provides poor reception quality. I am 15-20 feet away from my wireless router divided by walls. My own laptop's wireless adapter can handle this situation perfectly with full signal strength. This USB wireless adapter on the hand reached a download rate of 2 Mbps poor with an unreliable connection both under Ubuntu and Windows.
