Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother Do not buy this if you use any form of Linux. I was sold this by maplin to solve an issue with Linux and my laptop internal Wi-Fi, only to find later that I would need to downgrade the Linux kernel to a much older version to even attempt installing the drivers. After nearly a week, it still doesn't work!
