4 out of 5 eggsLooks like a great Wifi Adapter and works for the Most Part

Pros: The cradle lets you put the adapter anywhere you want on your desk. The device uses a Realtek chipset, which is one of the best networking chipsets around. The device can connect up to 300Mpbs.

Cons: Sometimes it will connect at 150Mbps, depending on which router you use. It should connect at 300Mbps with an N300 router right?

Other Thoughts: This is a good value, especially considering that it comes with a cradle. This is my replacement for a unit I previously had.

1 out of 5 eggsBad

Pros: - Easy to setup
- Decent signals

Cons: - After a few months of use, the wifi would get cut off whenever the antennae is touched. EXTREMELY annoying.

Other Thoughts: I do not recommend this product at all if other users have the same problem as I do.

1 out of 5 eggsInexpensive adapter with a decent antenna

Pros: small foot print
decent antenna
easy to install
Newegg RMA process was easy

Cons: worked randomly, and at much slower speeds than advertised.
randomly dropped signal.

Other Thoughts: With all the 4 star reviews, I had high hopes this cheap adapter would be an amazing bang-for-the-buck purchase. The adpter worked ok when it is operational, though it only delivered about 25Mps download speeds. From the beginning, it randomly dropped the wi-fi after 5-60 minutes of being connected. Sometimes unplugging/replugging it in will reset it and it begins working again, other times only a full computer reboot will reset it. Sometimes it won't find the wi-fi signal at all, even though when it is operational, it will read 98-100% signal, and other devices sitting right beside it are receiving a strong wi-fi signal with 40-50Mps download speeds. Luckily Newegg's return procedure was very easy and I was able to return it for free. For this reason, I buy 99% of my computer equipment at Newegg!

1 out of 5 eggsNot Windows 10 compatible

Pros: Worked great when I had windows 8!

Cons: Upon upgrading to windows 10, I now need a new wireless adapter. Smooth move, Rosewill, would it kill you to release a working windows 10 driver?

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY IF YOU OWN WINDOWS 8, 8.1, OR WINDOWS 10

Pros: This product worked great and had a great connection for the first week or so with a strong signal.

Cons: After a week, the driver stopped working properly. The device would work great for 10 seconds to a minute and then would stop working period. I reinstalled the driver multiple times and would continuously run into the same issues. I then went onto mediatek's website and installed their latest drivers. It worked great again for 2 days and then ran into the same issues. I checked windows update and updated everything. Still had the same issues. I upgraded to windows 10 and attempted reinstalling the drivers and I checked the website for the most up to date drivers. Still. Same. Issues. I'm usually the last one to give up and after fruitless hours of trying to find solutions online and no help from the manufacturer I am giving up on this. It is not a faulty product as it runs fine on my brother's Windows 7 PC but it will NOT run properly for Windows 8 despite what Rosewill may lead you to believe in these reviews. As far as I am concerned this adapter is making its way into the garbage since I can no longer return it and I am ordering a new one.

Other Thoughts: DON'T BUY IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 8, 8.1, OR WINDOWS 10!!!!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product

Pros: Installed out of the box, speed tested versus the Rosewill 450mbps PCI-E Dual Band Card and had 20% faster speeds,
My pc is quite a ways away from the router and on another floor, however, this product delivered.

I haven't had any issues with signal dropping and this product has restored my faith is Rosewill products.

Cons: I suppose a dual-band option would be beneficial, other than that everything was satisfactory.

Other Thoughts: I live in the country and this product arrived at my house in less than 24 hours, outstanding service Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks very well

Pros: Well build and works well too. Works with Windows 10... just let Windows do all the driver installation job.

Cons: Took away 1 egg because of the terrible support. They need to be more explicit... the retail packaging was the first thing that showed me it was not gonna work with Windows 10. Their website states it works only with Win XP and 7. The packaging states that it works with Wind 8 and that is what representative told me. However, you can download drivers only for Win XP and Win 7. Funny, but while i was arguing with their support, Windows 10 automatically found, downloaded, and installed drivers on its own (antenna was plugged in). I must say it works very well with our Intel Compustick that has terrible WiFi adapter build in.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks good except for Steam

Pros: Picks up good signal, speeds are good.

Cons: Crashes when downloading or updating games on Steam 99% of the time.

Other Thoughts: I can download a gig of the net no problem, but downloading a gig off of steam kills this adapter. Limiting Steam bandwidth did not help me. Here is the fix I found:

Go into advanced adapter settings and switch from b/g/n mode into b/g mode only. This will limit your speeds but won't drop your connection. When the updates are complete, simply switch back to b/g/n mode.
