Just bought one on Friday to replace my old Netgear 802.11b model which after three years or so was dropping the wireless connection intermittently. It was set up in literally seconds, a noticeable improvement in speed on the old model and so far no drop outs. Much better signal all over the house, two lap tops and two desktops all connected wirelessly, downstairs and upstairs. If you haven't had one before, it is the one to go for as it virtually sets itself up. You will need the USB adaptors unless your laptop has built in wireless.
