Re: USB Wireless Adapter Question
What's "relatively old"?
All devices have a Mean Time To Fail. For wireless usb devices, from my research, that's about 10 years of use every single day. Now that's pretty long so I would expect a lesser brand to fail a little sooner, but a new wireless USB device should not do that. How old is the roommates? From your post they can't be that old but I wouldn't rule out a faulty product. Are they past warranty replacement?

J: We're just intelligent enough to be completely effing stupid.
