No, it should work with any router that uses the Wireless G frequency, which is most newer routers. But always hang on to your receipt just in case....

You can use this with your Linksys router. The brand doesn't matter as long as it is 802.11g compatible.

Question

Does this come with a disc or do I need to download a driver online before I can use it?

I have one of these that a friend gave me but he didn't have a disc that went with it. I plugged it into my computer but it didn't do anything and said it needed a driver. The problem is, I run off my land lords internet (approved by him lol) but my husbands desktop does not have wireless capability. So he needs something he can plug into his computer that comes with an installation disc.

It depends on how old your laptop is. It's possible you only have 802.11b protocol, so this device, which uses 802.11g, would be better. You should also check the wireless transmitter (router or access point) to see if it also is merely 802.11b. Ideally, for it to be worth it for you to buy this device, your router is going to be 802.11g or even the newer 802.11n... and your laptop is older than a year or two and therefore doesn't have 802.11g. Check the specs of your laptop (online if you have to).

If your notebook already has wireless then there is no reason to add more wireless to it unless you're getting something better than what the notebook already has like Wireless 802.11n Dual-Band.

This Belkin does not do anything that a built in adapter does not already do.

An adapter like this would be a upgrade.

I want one myself ASAP, I only have 802.11b/g built in.
