Works but is not easy to install – High Power Palm-size 802.11b/g WiFi USB Adapter with High Gain Antenna Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
It does what intent to do: amplifies the wi-fi signal reception. It has a 1 meter USB cable to positioning the antenna in a better place.
Cons:
In my case, both discs were useless: my DVD/CD reader didn't recognized the only one with the drivers! Then I had to download the drivers on Internet (GSky site + realtek site) and uncompress them. Hard work.
Other:
I use Windows Vista 64 in my notebook and the realtek drive (15 Mb compressed) I dowloaded worked pretty fine. Better if it were recorded on supplied CD.
Bottomline:
My notebook has a built in wireless device and the wi-fi signal were always weak. Now, with this GSky the signal is strong and steady.
