My speeds are almost identical to my pc that is directly connected to my router downstairs. I removed my old USB adapter, inserted my installation CD, installed the software, plugged in my new USB adapter and at first I saw the same speeds of 7kbps to 28kbps for the first 5 to 10 minutes of using it. Medialink also includes a rather large desktop base with a hefty USB cable attached, should you want to use it. After running several test on my computer with technical support, I still was not wireless. Medialink claims that this is one of the smallest Wireless N USB adapters and I believe them – it’s half the size of an Actiontec adapter I recently reviewed.

Medialink Wireless-n USB 2.0 Adapter
Technical support picked up after one ring and I’m thinking to myself, this is amazing, no machine telling me to push buttons. No need to worry about compatibility with existing routers or gateways as this product is guaranteed to be fully compatible with all other brands of I install it and within five minutes I was wireless.
The signal strength was somewhat lower than the Intel card with its three antennae in the netbook lidwhich was understandable.
This product can also simultaneously operate bandwidth intensive applications such as voice, and video. Many devices on the market, wireless adapters in particular, “claim” to work with Windows 7, but upon further inspection they are only “compatible” or worse yet, just outright lying to your face that it’ll work.
Then, simply plug in your adapter and begin enjoying the convenience of your wi-fi network. Most websites were adaptsr accessible to me because of the long wait.
Make sure I read them right, for a Windows 7 install, didn’t work. Insert the CD, click “install software” and the utility will auto-detect your operating system and install the appropriate drivers. Suddenly a little light went on over my head. Did another re-boot to get out of safe mode, and it still works just fine. This dongle is not yet listed on WD TV Live’s supported device list, and I’ve found no previous posts or reviews confirming this compatibility.
Thank you so much Medialink!
A rare find – a multi-OS Wireless N adapter! My speeds are almost identical to my pc that is directly connected to my router downstairs. He said Mediabridge will ship it out right away at no cost. It medislink sometimes resurrect itself like some little zombie, but would eventually return to it’s grave, one time finally for good.
I recieved it two days later and proceeded to install the medialink wireless G USB adapter and again no success. Finally got it to work with Windows 7 64 bit Gerald Knauss Michigan, USA June 13, There are many horror stories of people trying to get their wireless adapters working with Windows 7 64 bit, this is one of those stories, but with a happy ending, eventually. The installation was like cake.
Wireless transmission rates can reach up to Mbps. I first tried it under Windows 7.
This adapter meets the most state of the art speed and coverage standards available. Great Company with a Big Bang for your Buck product RSV Mediailnk 11, I own a computer that utilizes Windows Vista 64 bit and was not having success installing wireless adapters from two reputable companies.
I waited and waited but the install seemed to be hung. However, when I rebooted and inserted the adapter, everything seemed to work.
After running several test on my computer with technical support, I still was not wireless. 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.
Medialink claims that this is one of the smallest Wireless N USB adapters and I believe them – it’s half the size of an Actiontec adapter I recently reviewed. I did an uninstall of the software, ensured it was removed from the device manager and rebooted the computer in “safe mode”. When I received it I was upset to see that the packaging claimed support for Windows only, and the Medialink web site has only Windows drivers. At the price Mediabridge is charging for their wireless adapters, this is qifi steal.
At this point I’m ready to punch a hole in the wall out of frustration. While I wanted to believe that, I used the CD anyhow.
