Does anyone know if this works with Ubuntu?

Apparently yes, see the website revues, which are rather strange mixture. Some claiming little improvement, some some improvement.

Besides working with at least one version of Linux, presumably most buyers of this item would already have wifi adapters built into their modern laptops and are hoping for a better signal strength. Given that this is a simple omnidirectional aerial, one wouldn't expect a great increase. In the uk, the strength of transmission for wifi adapters is strictly limited. However this comes with the three foot length of extension cable which could help. Better maybe to get Hawking adapters with directional aerials which promise up to a 300% increase in range. These do actually work although I notice Edimax promises 'up to 3x'

brilliant price! Paid £15 a couple weeks ago for one of these to fit in my Win7 HTPC... works a treat. :)

Be careful before rejoicing. I have another Edimax dongle with the same chip, I believe. Although the drivers do work under OS X, and seemingly get a good signal from the router downstairs, I got constant dropouts. I also had an Edimax PCI 80.211n card, which was even worse. The chip inside is a Ralink, so you have to use a separate application to connect (it will autostart and connect on boot up if you install it properly).

Both cards were solid under Ubuntu and Windows, but woeful under Leopard. In the end, I ditched both for a D-Link card, which was recognised as a native Airport card and since then no problems with sustaining a signal.

BTW, for those wanting to use this with Ubuntu, you have to compile the driver yourself and recompile each time the kernel is updated. Google for instructions, as the enclosed README in the source files makes a meal of the process.

[edit] At least as of Jaunty, native support for this dongle should be built in. You won't need to recompile unless you run older versions of Ubuntu.

YMMV, of course.

I get a good signal with my wireless setup but I can only get a data transfer rate of about 1MB/sec when transferring files between computers, anyone know why?
#9
tempting to order but not sure if i should get something better
#10
Anyone tried this with Windows 7 64bit?

It worked out of the box for me. Edimax supplies a Windows driver, but it is not needed for Win 7 unless you want to use the configuration utilities..

Possibly clashing with all the other wireless networks? 54Mbits/sec (7MBytes/sec) is one of these theoretical maximum speeds which is a myth in practice, anyway.
#13
I have had similar problems as Monkeyman - the adapators are not that great. Other wireless in the house runs better. Forcing to all speed settings (router is N compat as well) and it regularly hangs the PC when streaming/copying.

It is on Win 7 - but this is the only thing I've had an issue with. I wouldn't buy one again (mine cost me £24).

looks neat but the edimax name is keeping me from clicking 'buy'

I have one almost the same, it's done me proud

If I go with BT broadband, they provide a wireless router with their modem thingy. Will this Edimax receiver connect to it without problems?

I just use it to surf the Internet, not downloading anything massive...

Hope someone has the BT broadband too and can help me with this question. Thanks!

Don't see why not - wifi is wifi - but it baffles me why you are planning to waste your money on the most uncompetitive broadband provider out there.

[FONT=Verdana]Bought two at the new price (as updated by the OP) - good find, as I needed them for helping out a mate.

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:[/FONT]

Yeah, I'm forced to... I just moved, and the place I'm at I can't get a line... so I have to get BT to put in a line and sign up with them for a year or something... only when then I can switch to something like Talk Talk, or AOL...

Anyway, I phoned Talk Talk and that's what they told me

I bought one for £12.96 a week ago, haven't even opened it yet. Amazon won't refund the difference :(
#21
Got three of these at that price and just set them up with a N router and getting 135 mbps all over the house so I'm quite happy with the improvement at the price.:thumbsup:
