2 out of 5 eggsIt works, but it will break

Pros: It connects well to WiFi, and works as it should. Easy installation.

Cons: I bought two of these over the past couple years. After about a month of having both of them the black plastic covering the adapter cracked and broke off. This exposes the metal antenna which is then susceptible to bending and breaking. I have a similar dongle for a wireless mouse that is about the same size. I have kept it in my laptop for over a year and it hasn't broken. I would expect the same from a WiFi dongle that is clearly designed to be able to leave plugged into the computer while on the go. No such luck.

Other Thoughts: Although the cover has broken of and the antenna has bent as a result it still seems to be working.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Throughput

Pros: Newegg's very easy return system. Being a Premier member has its perks.

Cons: This item does not provide the wireless speed it claims. While the signal strength indicates full bars, the actual throughput is around 500kpbs. This performance is unacceptable. I tried downloading the latest driver from the Edimax website but it still makes no difference. Sent back for a refund.

Other Thoughts: Using Windows 7 x64. Other brand wireless adapters work just fine however, I was hoping to get a nano size.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Victor,

We apologize for the difficulty you are experiencing. We appreciate your feedback.
Before you consider on returning the device next time, please give us a chance to be of service to you.

Thank you!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Not Perfect

Pros: Small. Very small. Plus into any convenient USB port. Installed seamlessly with supplied CD.

Cons: Range seems limited. It will not pick up my router from 20 feet if the computer case was in the way: I had to use a front USB port. Also, on occasion it connects but transfers data at an extraordinarily slow rate (feels like 4 bits/sec). The cure for that is to unplug and replug it.

Other Thoughts: I've bought a handful of these adapters and like them a great deal, but they are fussy about getting enough signal.

2 out of 5 eggsSignal deteriorates over time

Pros: Small, so it doesn't protrude from the port. Good for basic internet usage.

Cons: Wifi strength seems to have deteriorated over time. Not for gamers or streamers. After 3 months of using it, I noticed that it will disconnect every so often.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Vanessa,

We are sorry the EW-7811Un nano wireless adapter does not have good speed for you.

Is it possible the WiFi range is too far for the EW-7811Un adapter?

Do you use the EW-7811Un on a desktop PC? Please put the EW-7811Un on the front USB port if possible. EW-7811Un will get better signal from your WiFi router and will get faster speed.

If you by a chance have a USB extension cord (Type A male to female), you may plug the USB extension cord to the USB port of the computer, then plug EW-7811Un to the USB cord. Make the adapter stand up vertically and face to your wireless router. By doing so, EW-7811Un will be on the outside of the computer case. This will help the WiFi speed a lot.

If you do not have such USB cord, I am afraid you may need a better wireless adapter for longer WiFi distance.
You may consider an USB wireless adapter with an external antenna from any wireless adapter manufacture, or you may refer our EW-7711USn

For further assistance, please feel free to contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us ". Our tech support team will assist you with any issues. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

Best regards,
Edimax Tech Support Team

5 out of 5 eggsUnbeilievable Product and Unbelievable Price

Pros: This product was incredibly easy to install and works great with Windows 7, Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. Great range and speed for such a small antenna. This is the perfect solution to replace a defective wifi adapter in a laptop or tablet. Also works great with the Raspberry Pi with Noobs, OpenElec, and others.

Cons: Honestly, for the price I have nothing negative to say about this product.

3 out of 5 eggsit's good for the price

Pros: It's good for the price $10

Cons: It doesn't really have good wifi signals and I saw it was $30 so that's way to much for this but $10 is alright.
