Linksys - Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with SpeedBooster

Linksys normally came with a good product. I generally like their products. Easy to use and all Operating Systems generally accept their networking product i.e. Linux, Windows XP, etc

This Compact Wireless USB is no exception. The product looks simple, and the Installation is a breeze. Put the CD, click on the next next next, and complete. Finding the access point is also simple.

The only problem with this product is to maintain the wireless connectivity. In my testing, behind 2 walls, this USB product have problem. The connection got lost in the middle a few times in a day.

My Router is Linksys Wireless Router-G Broadband Router (WRT54GL) . This router works fine with the PCMCIA and PCI model. Only with this USB model, the connection is not stable.

My best bet is with the antenna or input power, the PCI model have antenna, and the PCMCIA have a stronger bandwith while the USB only have 5v :P. So the input power is not strong enough.

So if you have a lot of Walls, dont use this product, you better get the PCMCIA card (notebook) or PCI card (Desktop). Those works better than this USB. For now, I have returned this USB product within 1 week due to the "connectivity" problem.

Price is: USD 59.99

Easy to Install: 5 Stars

Connectivity: 3 Starts
