using a usb 2.0 connection it wont ever get up to 900Mbps.
will tip over a lot (not recommended around a 2-3 yo)
The model is 900, the claimed theoretical performance is 450 Mbps. Which you'll never remotely see in real life. Which is just as well as USB 2.0 only goes up to 480 megabits before you knock off 10% for overhead and bandwidth allocation. Otherwise, your other peripherals on the same host adapter would be rendered useless if by some freak occurrence you got the theoretical maximum throughput. In real life, you'll get at best 150 Mbps if there isn't a lot of competing noise on the same band.
Which should be fine unless you have really terrific internet service, like gigabit fiber. If you need gigabit for file transfers, use a wire.
A speedometer is measured in Miles Per Hour (MPH) or Kilometers Per Hour (KPH)... this is using Megabits Per Second (Mgps)... the speedometer on a kia soul has no relevance nor comparison to a USB 2.0
I think what Cartier was saying was that just because a Kia Soul has 140 printed on the speedometer, it doesn't mean the car will ever reach that speed. Same with this WiFi adapter. 450Mbps is not likely to be achieved with this hardware, even though it's printed on the box.
Tomb Raider (X360) - $1
GTA V (X360) - $18
Overall they are not bad, I have used multiple generations of these devices. Last year models sucked had firmware issues, the previous years were great. This years were good, with not many issues reported. For a little bit of cash I would say they are great for desktops. I do prefer the bridges over the standard adapters though.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but this puppy can connect to your existing wireless connection, and allow your non wifi gadgets to plug into it with an Ethernet cable. Is that accurate? The gizmo I bought a few years back looked just like this thing, and that's what it did. Only it was twice the price. This unit won't repeat your wireless signal though. The newer units I've bought, plug into a wall outlet, repeat/extend your wireless signal, and have an Ethernet jack for wired. Cost about $25-30 though.
