No Linux support

Strengths of the product

Weaknesses of the product

Box says it works with linux; however after looking into it appears that it only easily works with a much older kernel.

Additional Comments

Does not work with Ubuntu 18.4 out of the box. Hopefully will work after work; however you cant even compile the driver.

Strengths of the product

small, compact, easy to setup

Weaknesses of the product

Started to slow down gradually until finally quit

Additional Comments

Bought this adapter for my laptop. It ran O.K. initially but after about a year started to slow down and freeze occasionally. Finally it quit working altogether. It can see the wifi networks but unable to connect to any. It has been tried on multiple laptops and PCs with no success so it is not a software/driver issue. Would not recommend and will not buy it again.

Strengths of the product

-small size -high speed -in depth and powerful setup utility

Weaknesses of the product

-does not interact well with native windows network utilities

Additional Comments

I bought this after the built in adapter on my laptop failed, plugged it in and selected my SSID and password from the ASUS network utility. this thing gave me information on my local wifi traffic that you would expect from a wifi scanner, I have been using it for 3 years now with no issues, I would recommend it to anyone needing wifi capability.

Failed After 5 Months

Strengths of the product

Small, easy set-up, great speed.

Weaknesses of the product

Longevity. Never did get my mail in rebate.

Additional Comments

I had expected to get more than five months use from mine. I had also expected to get the $15 promised by rebate (which they assured me was sent). If you buy this, get their extended warranty; you'll likely need it.

amazing!

Strengths of the product

- Windows 10 Pro x64 installed without needing disc or drivers from another Computer / USB. - Prefect length to avoid getting destroyed too easily when moving the laptop around. - Decent range

Weaknesses of the product

- Had to download updated drivers from Asus site before it would see 5GHz networks.

Additional Comments

Perfect small replacement wifi usb adapter which is easy to setup and performs as expected. So far extremely stable and stays at 433Mbps constantly.
