Summering: Works very well out of the box. My Windows 7 was not able to identify and install device drivers on it own, had to use the CD provided along with the product. In Linux (Ubuntu 14.04) it was able to run without explicitly installing device drivers. Overall, I get the best possible speeds (as allowed by my internet plan) on this device. Please DO NOT BUY USB WIRELESS ADAPTER as it is slow and the connection fluctuates and drops every few seconds.
