waste of $30

Strengths of the product

you get internet most of the time

Weaknesses of the product

it worked good at my old place where i was 2m from the router but in a real house it frequently disconnects and loads websites slow. You do have internet but not what youre paying the ISP for. Any game is 300+ ping, normally 600+.

Additional Comments

bad if the router isn't in the same room

Wish I had returned earlier

Strengths of the product

Can connect to the internet.

Weaknesses of the product

Disconnects every half hour regularly, and won't reconnect until it's been unplugged, left for a while, and plugged back in. Sometimes not even then. It appears this is a known problem with this device.

Additional Comments

Try something else.

Strengths of the product

Easy setup, looks cool.

Weaknesses of the product

It could only read 2.4ghz networks. Works only on 20/40mhz frequencies. My 5ghz network is the one I use for torrenting and gaming and it could not find it.

Additional Comments

Buy a proper dual band usb adapter and save the headache.

Good so far

Additional Comments

Bought this after my internal wireless card died on a TV media center computer. The computer is running Linux and this adapter came with Linux drivers right on the CD which was a refreshing change. Works well for the type of internet usage involved (downloading, hosting servers, etc.). See how well it holds up over time.

Very Bad

Strengths of the product

-Connection to the router is decent -Does not need installing into the interior of the computer -USB

Weaknesses of the product

-If your ping fluctuates in any way, it will intensify the fluctuation -Bad for any type of gaming since it increases actual lag -Raises you to 1000-3000 ms (ping) at times -No software support for Windows 8

Additional Comments

It is an atrocious wireless adapter for a computer and I would NOT recommend it. When I was building my computer, the salesperson recommended this product to me and I have regretted buying it ever since. This product is cheap and is decent for everyday casual browsing but can warrant major lag spikes at uncertain times. My 5-6 year old EEEPC notebook has a better interior adapter than this. Any type of fluctuation from your router will cause this product to go crazy (ping-wise).

Good stick

Strengths of the product

I have two of these. One I bought several years ago (A1 model), that works flawlessly in xp, vista and win 7 ultimate. Signal reception is awesome, speeds are great and connectivity is 99.9%

Weaknesses of the product

I recently (February 22nd, 2014) bought a B1 model of this. The drivers Windows has built in for this (Win 7 Ultimate anyway) do not work. Constant bsod. The tech at Memex in Winnipeg helped me figure out the issue. The B1 model is a Realtek chip, which requires a different driver than the A1 Ralink model. Search google for "Asus USB-N13 B1 drivers". Nowhere on the packaging, or on the stick itself does it specify B1 model

Additional Comments

All in all, after the frustration with the drivers, this is still a great stick, especially for $20 on sale. I would highly recommend this product to others.

Not good

Strengths of the product

Easy to install

Weaknesses of the product

Stopped working after 6 months

Additional Comments

Not a good product. For the value, it was expected to remain functional at least for a year, but after 6 months it stopped working

Still running after 3 years

From Calgary

Strengths of the product

- Small, compact - Achieves speeds almost as fast as ether-net (about 1-2 mbps off download speed) - Long lasting (about 3 years since I bought it, still running), despite what others say I did not have to return my model once

Weaknesses of the product

- Occasionally, usually when gaming the adapter just disconnects randomly, or ping suddenly raises to 500+

Additional Comments

Works well, and great value.

Strengths of the product

Works well with my old PC and cheap wifi router.

Weaknesses of the product

Had to re-install several times. The "old" driver on the included cd worked fine, but the newer one I downloaded from ASUS was the problem.

Additional Comments

Exactly what I wanted & $30 on sale.
