I have an older computer I wanted wireless and this did it perfectly. I had read Noodles review and downloaded the older software from the Netgear website and it was pretty much plug and play. All I had to do was copy the SSID key code from the side of my ATT router to enter it in the set up and it's done. I don't have any problems with it dropping or running slow, it's just like being hard wired. Would definitely buy again.
I plugged this wireless adapter in and, BINGO, my computer recognized it, installed any needed drivers, and I had full bars. My pci adapter card would usually only get 2, sometimes 3, and rarely ever 4. This product is the trick. Strongly recommend and I would buy again in a heartbeat.
I was using a WPN111 and it began to fail. Constant over heating and signal loss. This adapter works great! You must go to the Netgear website to download the driver. It is sent in a Zip file and must be converted for loading. After that everything worked great. Good buy for the money!
it has to have software or driver,,, didn't come with any called netgear they blew me off,, so I threw them away,,, junk. the store down the street sells one that works for less money,,,sometimes the internet is bad karma
Worked first time out of the box downloaded automatically and still working on my laptop. The second one I had to download the drivers from the internet then save to flash then install (glad I had ISP connection or I would have a problem). I bought them for an ad-hoc wireless network using a gateway, works like a charm. 2b1af7f3a8
