    Can't get to work.
    I can't find the right drivers or program to work with Mac OS X Lion. Monoprice can you just post up a download link for the right drivers/app for mac users. It connects just fine on my windows machine so i know the usb device works.

    PROS: Nice and compact.....

    CONS: Confusing as hell to get to work on Mac. No direct support. They send a mini disc that won't fit in a Macbook slot drive.

    Works great!
    Bought this to use with my Raspberry Pi.
    It worked great right out of the box with raspian and XBMC. No setup needed

    Works good
    I'm using this with my Raspberry Pi board running Rasbian Linux. The USB wlan adapter shows up as a Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN, with the USB ID 0bda:8176. It was plug and play with the RPi and it also worked perfectly in Xubuntu 12.04, so if you want an easy wireless connection, this is a good deal.

    PROS: Worked out of the box with Linux (Xubuntu 12.04 and Rasbian 2012-12).

    CONS: none so far

    Really Great!
    Absolutely amazing. Works really well in every OS i tested even in ARM linux. If you are looking for the correct driver ... this device is RTL8188 which is encompassed under the RTL8192CU driver.

    802.11n wireless adapter needed for Raspberry Pi Model B
    I needed a low powered 802.11n wireless adapter for my Raspberry Pi Model B. I am using it to connect the Raspberry Pi to my home network wirelessly. It works great, and for $7.44, the price was right. The adapter utilizes the rtl8192cu chipset, so there is built in support in many Linux distros, including those created for the Raspberry Pi (OpenELEC, RaspBMC, RasPlex).

    PROS: It works great, and for $7.44, the price was right.
    It works on Linux, including distros for the Raspberry Pi (OpenELEC, RaspBMC, RasPlex).
    Its low powered, so you do not need a seperate powered USB hub when running with a Raspberry Pi.

    CONS: It only comes in black {chuckle}.

    Brings WiFi to my Raspberry Pi
    I needed an option to get my Raspberry Pi up and running with a Raspbian installation that didn't have ethernet access. I've tried other wireless adapters and have had problems with the Pi both using the GUI as well as manually configuring to come up upon boot. Ended up getting this adapter working right out of the box and hard coded my WPA information. My Pi now works flawless (knock on wood) as an internet Kiosk out in the warehouse.

    PROS: Wonderful plug-n-play options to get my Raspberry Pi up and running on wireless.

    CONS: None that I've found thus far

    Works with Raspberry Pi running Rasbmc
    Recongized and works with Raspberry Pi running Rasbmc. Just needed to install network manager to enter my security settings. All working well!

    PROS: Works with Raspberry Pi running Rasbmc

    CONS: None

    Great addition to my Raspberry Pi
    Great device! I got this working with my Raspberry Pi by using RTL8192CU drivers. (same as 8188CU).

    I contacted tech support and they adviced me that this adapter will attempt to negotiate 500mA via USB. Theoretically the RPi should handle this (with no other devices), but I couldn't get it to work. I eventually connected the device with a powered USB hub and everything was gravy.

    For help with installing the proper drivers on your RPi, follow this:

    It's what I used and it worked perfectly.

    PROS: Small adapter, common chipset, "easily" configured in linux

    CONS: Driver disc is a mini cd.

    Would Not Hold Signal
    I am very disappointed with this product and have returned it. The device would not hold the connection. I would have 99% signal strength, but the signal would drop before I could even load a web page. I tried at home, at work and a public hotspot.

    PROS: Very easy to install.

    CONS: Would not hold signal. Hot to touch.
