Thats not how the return policy should be abused.

albert, care to share with us in a nutshell your 2 cents about this fella? maybe a mini review will be very helpful to us. I am on the verge of writing off my EUB9706 purchases and sadly we are not in the States where 30 days return policies are the norm. Buying wifi equipment especially when actual and theory diverge so much is so much of a hit and miss affair.

I don't i will go wrong with a pro's choice. please let's hear it.
I have my reason for choosing this adapter. I can mod it from omni to directional for my purpose.

EUB9706 also not bad, i got my best friend to bought 2 recently at Comex for his old notebook and his son's desktop. I dont know why you want to write off these... pretty acceptable stick, if you know what to expect from it. I dont know how you use them (direct plug into usb port?), i usually use them with a usb extension cable and hang at certain height, worst case scenario i can mod them into directional, it depend on which antenna is use on the wireless router (the higher gain antenna has narrow but longer vertical coverage).

I'm not pro; just someone that used to rolled out wireless project at changi airport and schools a long time ago.

i see. to be honest the EUB9706 is okay with WAN to LAN downlink. No issues for the clients in terms of internet connectivity. However, my WLAN connectivity (do they call it Lan to Lan?) is bad. there are many factors such as attenuation factors and radiowave interference and these could have resulted in my very high CRC errors.

I am not sure whether my CRC errors figures are normal and whether they are contributory to my poor LAN to LAN throughput.

the other time i was on the line with engenous tech support and i described my topology down to a T and the guy told me on a very nice manner that it is the limitation of the EUB9706 as a dongle type adapter. Well, that was the reason behind it i suppose.

WLAN to LAN/WLAN throughput must depend on how many wireless clients... you must understand that the more the client, the less the speed and throughput.

A whole lot of people are attracted to wireless technology by the convenience of using devices without the hassle of wire. If they are layman and they only use it to access internet, they are fine. BUT if these layman starts to have high expectation of wireless and read all the fancy articles painted with marketing gimmick, they usually ended with disappointment when they do it (like you).

I persuaded my best friend to run Cat5e LAN cable in STAR topology in his 5room flat 10 years ago, connected to a good gigabit switch (wireless router also connected to this switch), LAN to LAN throughput definitely better, higher and faster than you doing from WLAN to LAN.
