Terrible under linux

Submitted on Friday, July 06, 2018

Strengths of the product

Works ok under windows

Weaknesses of the product

Terrible under linux. Always dropping WIFI connection, unable to reconnect unless you pull the plug in and out. Drivers are hard to find and outdated.

Additional Comments

Do not buy if you want to use this product with Linux (tested under ubuntu 18.04)

Official Reply from Memory Express:

It seems more than a little unfair to give this product designed and sold for Windows® a 1 Star Rating because it doesn't have current Linux Drivers. Especially when it says on our site: Supports Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7



works as its supposed to

Strengths of the product

I use this for gaming with my friends all the time. Some of them have higher priced adapters that don't work as well as this one. -Good distance too, I usually game upstairs with my buddy's while the router is downstairs. Actually ran it through the washer once and it's still going strong! (don't recommend doing that though.) -I'm not sure why some people are writing reviews on what are clearly factory defects. If it does the same thing on the replacement one, sure, but not on the first one.

Weaknesses of the product

-Haven't found any. Works for all types of gaming (FPS, RTS) with no drops.

Additional Comments

I like this device a lot, and I have told my friends to get this one in the future.

Poor performance

Strengths of the product

Cheap and easy to setup. Purchased it to hook up to a Raspberry Pi which was being setup as a home theatre PC. It was constantly dropping the connection even though the access point was only 20 feet away and in clear line of sight. I then moved it over to a PC that was running windows 7 thinking it was the Raspberry Pi or Linux causing the issues only to have the same problem in Windows 7. When it worked, it worked. But it seems as though it dropped its connection every 35 seconds

Weaknesses of the product

Always dropping the WiFi Connection

Additional Comments

Would not recomend for anything other than web surfing. Caused me a lot of issues and will need to replace it. with a PCI-E as I know I can put more trust in the internal cards.

Good price, easy installation, works on WinXP, Win7 and Server 2008R2 (64 bits). Haven't tried on Linux. But I believe it will work too. Driver works direct from CD.

Weaknesses of the product

For $19 no complain!

Strengths of the product

Reasonably priced Seems to work as expected, good speeds Works with PSP X-Link Kai (see summary)

Weaknesses of the product

Manual is outdated and unclear on how to operate certain features, online manual is no better

Additional Comments

In order to get Xlink compatibility, you MUST install the Windows XP 32/64-bit drivers, regardless of what operating system you're running. Afterwards you can enable Xlink mode as you would.

ok..
