But when I checked the status of the device I did see that it was receiving some packets from the router, but that was about it. The signal strength was somewhat lower than the Intel card with its three antennae in the netbook lid , which was understandable. I first tried it under Windows 7. I forget sometimes that I’m wireless. However, when I rebooted and inserted the adapter, everything seemed to work. Hope this helps those looking at this for the same reason that I was. At this point I’m ready to punch a hole in the wall out of frustration.

I believe that one of our cats had decided it to a chew toy. My speeds are almost identical to my pc that is directly connected to my router downstairs.

The adapter finally arrives in the mail! The driver installed nicely and the adapter worked, though Adaper found the configuration utility confusing and could not figure out how to use WiFi Protected Setup WPS.
Maybe they wrong, maybe they thought they had 64 bit, but it was really 32 bit. I did an uninstall of the software, ensured it was removed from the device manager and rebooted the computer in “safe mode”. Medialink also includes a rather large desktop base with a hefty USB cable attached, should you want to use it.
I had no problems connecting, but the speeds that I was getting was actually dial-up speeds! Suddenly a little light went on over my head. Kudos to Mediabridge for backing their products and lowering my blood pressure. The phone was picked up after one ring and a customer service person rerouted me to technical support.
At this point I was ready to cut open walls and run the ethernet cable to my computer.
This adapter meets the most state of the art speed and coverage standards available. I then tried OS X. I tried it and it did work. Checked the box the adapter came in, I don’t see Windows 7 listed on the outside of the box; WindowsXP and Vista but no Windows 7 listed on the box.
