Great in linux, terrible in windows 7
Works great in linux. Works terrible in window 7. It drops the connection every few seconds and a pop-up notification pops up interfering with viewing what is on the monitor. It reconnects a few seconds later and another pop-up notification pops-up to inform me that it reconnected. I could not handle the disconnect/reconnect every few seconds. Luckily i have a much better and faster adapter that works great in windows 7 but doesn't work in linux. So i have two adapters plugged into my desktop machine, one for linux and one for windows. If you use windows 7 i do not recommend this. If linux is your only os this works great, and no need to worry about a driver - it's already there (in any ubuntu distro, i don't know about others).
