Recently bought this item to connect my daughters desk top computer to the internet. This is a great product. The Antenna can be moved to recieve the best reception. There is the option of having a long usb cord to connect or a short cord. I would recommend the long cord if your main router is not in the same room. If your Router is not in the same room you can easily move the receiver to receive the best signal. I atached a small piece of Velcro to the back of mine and placed it on the wall where it gets the best reception. This is a great travel adapter as well. You can take it any where you need to go. Not to mention how many times have you been in the hotel wanting to sit down on your bed and mess around with your laptop? Well with this little wireless adapter you can do that. Place the reciever where it gets a good signal and take the laptop to the bed or where ever you want it. Great item. As of yet no glitches. Connects perfectly every time.
