Works great on Windows 10 until...
I disconnected it once while the PC was on and it never worked the same again (Windows 10 64-bit), now it always disconnects 2-3 mins after starting the PC then you have to go into your network connections and disconnect then reconnect it and you're good to go until you reboot again
When it works it's great and solid, the annoyance of having to reconnect it after every reboot is wearing thin on me. I expect that reinstalling windows would fix it but that's as good of a solution as buying a new house when you don't like a creaky door. I think I've had this for 5-ish years, I'm a bit bummed to see it's still one of Mem-Exs best options under $50.

you get internet most of the time
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+.
bad if the router isn't in the same room

Can connect to the internet.
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.
Try something else.

Easy setup, looks cool.
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.
Buy a proper dual band usb adapter and save the headache.

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.

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

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%
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
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.
