5 out of 5 eggsgreat on all windows

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900UBE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, USB Interface, 1 External Foldable Antenna

Pros: This is by far the best usb wifi device ive had and ive had 14 different ones in 12 years. Generally they die or drop signal when i was gaming alot. This thing grabs and goes.

Now all these crybabies that say it sucks for Windows 8 and 8.1, thats because they inserted the disc suite and THAT IS A NO NO.

on windows 8 and newer you simply plug and play. If this does not work there is a problem in your windows and/or motherboard, every working system will pick this up and you will see wifi options on the bottom right of desktop.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended for people who game online and download large files. Just as fast as going cat 6 cord from 25 feet away

1 out of 5 eggsDIED QUICKLY!!!!

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900UBE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, USB Interface, 1 External Foldable Antenna

Pros: Awesome speeds on the 5G network!!!

Cons: After only 10 days of use, I can connect to my router, but I get no internet access.. I have other wireless units in the house, and they all can access the internet with the router.. I re-installed my PCI-E wireless card, and it connects just fine, but it isn't a 5ghz card only the standard 2.4ghz. :/

Other Thoughts: I got this on sale, and I never would of thought of this device going bad.. This was my 1st USB wireless adapter, and it was great while it lasted.. But even on sale, a 10 day life span isn't worth the money... The return shipping is going to make the sale price I bought this, NULL AND VOID.. What a waste.. I'm not sure if I want to return for a refund or exchange for another unit.. This is the 1st time I've ever had anything die on me so quickly.. I've still got a 2.4ghz pci-e card from 10+ years ago, that still works to this day.. hmmmmm

4 out of 5 eggsWorks on Windows 8

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900UBE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, USB Interface, 1 External Foldable Antenna

Pros: Fast, good range.

Cons: Need to hunt for driver

Other Thoughts: Did not work on 5 GHz with Windows 8 initially. This device uses the Ralink RT3573 chipset. I went to Mediatek/Ralink website and searched for the drivers for the RT357x chipset (dated August). I installed only the driver on Windows 8.1. I also went to Device Manager and set the channel range to match my wireless router. Windows Network Manager then found the 5 GHz router. The router is 25 feet away through two walls and I still got a 5-bar signal. One egg off for the installation difficulty.

3 out of 5 eggsWouldn't pay full price for this

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900UBE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, USB Interface, 1 External Foldable Antenna

Pros: It's fast and does what it needs to on windows 7.

Cons: It was a pain to setup since the disc didn't work and DOESN'T work on windows 8 despite being advertised as such. I had to manually install the driver too which was a pain. I expected to just plug in and put the disc in and it should work, not having to troubleshoot by myself on an item that doesn't work as advertised. Although it came with a USB hub, if it didn't when i would've gotten no connection what so ever next to my computer.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks like I hoped

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900UBE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, USB Interface, 1 External Foldable Antenna

Pros: Getting the speeds advertised using 5ghz.

Cons: The eternal antenna is flimsy

Other Thoughts: Couldn't say this was a con per say but this thing worked great on Win 7. Works ok with my Surface Pro 2. The issue is that my SurPro2 will not connect automatic to the 5ghz network. It requires the PW every time. I can connect to the 5ghz network because the software from Rosewill connects while Win8 is unable to. Ive been on multiple forums but have yet to find a proper solution.

1 out of 5 eggssukkz

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900UBE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, USB Interface, 1 External Foldable Antenna

Pros: .

Cons: .

Other Thoughts: this thing is a NIGHTMARE to deal with.
i mean the research i have found [trying to make this thing work - finding it is unidirectional (meaning it needs a straight line pointing to the router)] is absolutely absurd; and THAT is why this thing is shipped/offered a 3 foot USB "hub" to get a "better connection."
doesn't even offer [withing the software] to ADD a new "hidden" network. (a non-broadcasting SSID).
WHEN the router was engaged to display the 5Ghz channel, it STILL would only connect @ 2.4. Speed tests prooved this.
I am a Newegg EggXpert Reviewer, and if this had been sent this to me, I would have simply thrown it into the trash can.
...seriously Rosewill? I have MUCH more faith in you than THIS. C'mon!!!
i will be sending it back asap. THANKFULLY i am with newegg preimer and it will cost me NOTHING to send it back. beware others whom dont use newegg preimer.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for the price

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900UBE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, USB Interface, 1 External Foldable Antenna

Pros: Wireless connection is much faster now. I was getting 21Mbps with Wireless N 150 Rosewill adapter. Now i'm getting 42Mbps from my Fios router running in single band since Fios router does not support dual band.

Cons: None.
