I know, I know. I've touted my disdain for Asus for quite some time now, but I took a chance on their $24 USB Wireless N adapter and it paid off!

The range is almost as good as my Linksys WUSB600N adapter and I've seen throughput of 1.0MBps with it. My Linksys adapter just three feet away from this one will pull 1.4MBps, but it also cost 2.5 times more than the Asus adapter.

Get 'em while they last. I've got another one on order for the next Folding machine I set up.

I was getting my wife's side rig running and I tried 2 different USB adpaters and had a horrible time with it. I even got adapters that matched up with my netgear router. router has WPS, the adapter had WPS, just could not get either to connect very well, if at all to save my life, and it was 5 feet from the wireless router! Was extremely disappointed. spent the better part of the day on it. Its an HTPC case, so a card was not an option.

I would love to try this one, thats a great deal. But I just know it won't be any better of an experience. I guess I should have asked around here before I gave up.
