1 out of 5 eggsWorked at first, now a dud

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Cheap and at first pretty fast...

Cons: After owning this device for 6 months it longer works as expected. It will still tell you that it has a strong link, in my case 72Mbps, but every webpage will time out. Ping reports latency upwards of 600 ms to the router while every other device works fine. Attached it to a Win7 (x2), Win8.1, Ubuntu 14.05, and RasPi to check for driver issues. All appear to work until you start browsing.

Not worth the money.

Other Thoughts: I tested it against a USB powered nano WiFi router and a laptop and this is the only device that would not provide decent performance.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value, works well!

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Low price, WIFI-N support, small size, big value. This WIFI adapter works and works well and the price is just ridiculous for what you get. May not run at 300Mbs, but for what you pay, who is griping? And who really gets 300Mbs throughput from a USB WIFI adapter, anyway? Just buy it!

Cons: plastic packaging is a bit tough to get into. That is all!

Other Thoughts: Love these for easy setup and good connectivity. You won't be disappointed

5 out of 5 eggsOff Script

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: After reading the specifications and the OS support, and not seeing Microsoft Windows Server 2008R2 on the list I had to try. I wanted to put a server at a location that was just not practical to run Ethernet cable.
This device is faster than a power line kit

Cons: At first installing this in the standard method for a windows device, it failed!
Using the device manager and the CD was the only way to make this device work.
I guess if it was going to be easy I would not have needed the CD.

Other Thoughts: Installing this device did take a quarter hour to get the system to accept the driver, but it was worth it.
I have excellent signal strength and data transfer almost as good as using CAT 6 cable.
Now I have the ability to use the server, and have it in a out of the way location.
If you use a device like this on a server, maximize all of your security on your router, I recommend no less than a mix of 12 letters numbers and symbols, all random.

2 out of 5 eggsGood for Linux... Not so good for Windows

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Works very well for my Linux partitions. Connects to my 45 Mbps router between 40 and 44 Mbps. No drivers needed with Linux.

Cons: The Windows driver disk provided is worthless. The program installs, but abends when executed. Tried to download drivers from Rosewill, but the driver web page no longer exists. For windows, there are better options.

2 out of 5 eggsWeak

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Despite an advertised max speed of 150 Mps, I was able to get about 18 Mps (down) while standing 2 feet from a wireless 150 Mbs router. At 10 feet and a wall away, I got 4.5 Mbs (down). At 12 feet and 2 walls, the connection was pretty much toast.

4 out of 5 eggsGood I guess

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Good range
Decent speeds

Cons: Not really any, other than the annoying driver software. You don't actually need it.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's okay

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: It's great in a pinch, like if you take your desktop along on a trip and don't want to pack a router and just hop onto local wireless or a phone hotspot.

Cons: It doesn't have great range, and rarely did I ever see the signal exceed 2 (of 5) bars.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill WiFi USB Adapter

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: I originally purchased this 6 months ago and it just stopped working on its own-no connection blue light. I tried on another computer, same issue. I e/mailed Rosewill for an RMA and I got an e/mail following day that Rosewill will cover the cost for the replacement and Rosewill will not need the original adapter. Newegg shipped out the new adapter and I received it in 1 day

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Newegg has treated me very well on replacement parts and new items that I have purchased and very fast shipping times 1-4 days max
