Wireless transmission rates can reach up to Mbps. Medialink also includes a rather large desktop base with a hefty USB cable attached, should you want to use it. Offering the ultimate in simplified Wi-Fi installation, the installation utility of this wireless adapter was designed so even the most novice user can install this product quickly and with ease. While I wanted to believe that, I used the CD anyhow. I decided to give it a try. Maybe it was a software conflict of some sort that was puking the install.

The phone was picked up after one ring and a customer service person rerouted me widi technical support. Make sure I read them right, for a Windows 7 install, didn’t work.
I am running Vista bit OS and am aware of all the online connectivity issues with this particular operating system. I waited and waited but the install seemed to be hung. No need to worry about compatibility with existing routers or gateways as this product adapteer guaranteed to be fully compatible with all other brands of 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.
Mediailnk first tried it under Windows 7. Went back to instructions again. Maybe it was a software conflict of some sort that was puking the install.
So I googled the wireless adapter and found that Amazon carried it. At the price Mediabridge is charging for their wireless adapters, this is a steal. Everything for my online experience is now lightning fast again.
Speed was excellent, though. Did another re-boot to get out of safe mode, and it still works just fine. My connection speeds were ridiculously 7kbps to 28kbps at most! Wireless transmission rates can reach up to Mbps. It also works well with other 11g and 11n protocol wireless products.
YouTube videos were impossible to watch. Insert the CD, click “install software” and the utility will auto-detect your operating system and install the appropriate drivers. The installation was like cake. Maybe they wrong, maybe they thought they had 64 bit, but it was really 32 bit.
Medialink Wireless-n USB 2.0 Adapter
Yep, right there, they do say Windows 7 in the instructions, don’t say if it’s 32 or mddialink bit, but Windows 7 none-the-less. I received the wireless-N adapter the following day again,amazing. I finally decided to contact Mediabridge to convey my dissatisfaction. I was looking for a new wireless adapter for my wife’s computer, as the old one suddenly stopped working one day.
Even sites like eBay took a while just to output the whole page if the auctions were picture heavy. My speeds are almost identical to my pc that is directly connected to my router downstairs. Some reviewers claimed that you didn’t need to use the install CD, just plug that little puppy into the witi port and it’ll be right as rain.
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, adater is one of those stories, but with a happy ending, eventually.
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 usbb for the first 5 to 10 minutes of using it. Hope this helps someone else. At this point I’m ready to punch a hole in the wall out of frustration.
Unlike with an AirPort or some Apple-supported device, there’s no indication in the menu bar that there’s a connection, but the “Ralink Wireless USB” utility that launches when the adapter is connected confirmed it was there.
Employs background features that automatically avoid channel conflicts. When I received it I was upset to medizlink that the packaging claimed support medialunk Windows only, and the Medialink web site has only Windows drivers. At best, I was expecting to have to run some home-brewed firmware on the WD TV in order to get this to work.
