Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UNABLE TO USE WITH WINDOW 10 UNABLE to use with WINDOW 10 do not recommend this ADAPTER BAD!!!!!!! March 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fail with Verizon Fios I tried two of these adapters with Verizon's Quantum Router and neither could find my network. You can't even force these things to work. March 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quick and easy I have an older Dell XPS series with Windows 10 on it. The Belkin wireless unit I had used for years quit working when I upgraded the operating system (along with the wireless keyboard and mouse.. but that's a long story). I just moved temporarily into an apartment while I look for a new house and didn't want a LAN cable draped across the room to the router so I decided to try this wireless adapter. Plugged it in, connected to the router and working in minutes. No muss, no fuss. My only complaint is the huge size. I put it into the back of my Dell since there are only 2 USB ports on the front. It now sticks out of the cabinet 2 inches so I can't close the desk drawer and I'm afraid that the smallest mistake will smash the device and break it off. No idea why it has to be this big. I have much smaller ones for my laptops. February 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Personally I don't know anyone still running Windows 7 not compatible with Windows 10 you need an upgrade had to return it March 15, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by I'd pass I was expecting a simple plug in and go installation. The drivers that came with it did not work when I plugged it in to a Windows 7 x64 computer. I had to search online to find updated drivers that would work but even that took about an hour. Now my PC is slower on boot as well. C'mon Cisco. That being said, it works once installed. If you simultaneously need usb wifi and have a home depot gift card it will get you by. BTW... Zero Linux support and functionality. After an hour of reading online I got it to work once in a Debian environment but it did not work the 2nd time I booted up. I gave up running an ethernet cable each time I booted just so I could do more troubleshooting. May 6, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not sure what I bought I installed the 2500 successfully, but I don't really know how to use the device or where to keep it connected. Right now it's installed in a USB in the mainframe. I thought when I installed it, I would automatically know it's working. Sorry I can'r give a better review. February 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reliability Up Bought several weeks ago and it has increased my wifi connectivity markedly. February 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Installation of a wireless adapter to my laptop I purchased this product and I am very pleased with it. February 13, 2016
