5 out of 5 eggsVirtual Perfection

Pros: Got this one after the internal card we tried failed. Should have read the 2 and 3 ball reviews on that one as they identified a trend. The Edimax N600 has been excellent. Although it only has a few reviews, they were all positive, so we decided to give it a try. Worked flawlessly right out of the box and pulls as well as our Ethernet connections. The ability to place the USB antennae is a bonus. Sure it isn't as tidy as a USB stub, but if your in a challenging location, it can make a big difference. It's been consistently solid.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: I have gone through MANY MANY WiFi adapters. Some are good, and most are average. Some have been downright awful. This is one of the best I have used, and it is inexpensive to boot. It is based on the well known and reliable RaLink chipset (now MediaTek). It operates equally well on the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands. I recently transitioned one of the AP's I connect to over to 5 GHz only (an EnGenius ENS500 outdoor AP). I get -49 dBm ROCK STABLE on the 5 GHz band, which makes sense since the band is not prone to interference. Everything is much smoother, even if the signal strength is not in the -36 dBm range I was getting on the 2.4 GHz band with a older AP. I have come to the conclusion that even with a weaker signal, due to concrete walls and other obstacles, that the 5 GHz band is far superior.

One of the biggest pro's is that it comes with a USB cradle, which is weighted. This is attached to a 38" or so long cable that feels thick and high quality. I was able to locate the adapter to the best possible reception location.

I was off and running after installing the drivers, which I obtained from the EDIMAX website just in case the shipping CD drivers were out of date.

Cons: None that I have found.

Other Thoughts: All dBm measurements were taken with Wirelessmon from Passmark.

5 out of 5 eggsEggcellent Dongle

Pros: Owned this for about 10 months now. I haven't had a single problem yet. Works fantastic... "Knocks on wood." Don't want to jinx myself but, hey if you're looking for a cheap reliable dongle, this is the one. As of 3/17/13 it's listed for $24.99 and free shipping!

Cons: I can't think of any... maybe availability of assortment of colors?

Other Thoughts: getting another one for my laptop... I love it...

5 out of 5 eggslove these

Pros: The cord is a huge plus simply because it lets you move the antenna away from walls and computer cases etc. which can have a dramatic effect on your reception. The base is indeed heavy and chunky as someone else noted, but that is a good thing in my opinion because it doesn't get knocked over or drug around by the weight of its own cord.

Cons: I can't really think of any.

Other Thoughts: I bought one about a year ago not expecting much having never heard of EDIMAX. I now own 3 of them. They all consistently connect at 270-300 Mbps, and I've had 0 problems out of them. And to the people complaining about the EDIMAX software well here's a thought... don't install it. All you need to install is the driver itself and use your OS to manage the adapter/connection.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Received a signal and connects to wi-fi.

Cons: The built-in 2.5ghz NIC built into my laptop gets the SAME throughput as this dual channel one. Built-in also gets 5 signal bars on 2.5 while this one gets 3 bars on 2.5g and 2 bars on 5g in same location. I am also using an Edimax 600n router, which is also decent but does have a stable signal, although not strong enough for my needs. It is also bulky compared to most USB wi-fi adapters. If you are not going to be sitting almost right next to the router you can forget about using this for any meaningful boost from 5g. This also will not work without also installing the cumbersome edimax wi-fi software which seems to get confused a lot with Windows when disconnecting and switching over to the built-in. This may be a better option for a laptop with no wi-fi already or a even desktop, but not just to get a faster speed or better signal.

Used inSSIDer and lanspeedtest for testing.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Value Good Performance

Pros: Easy installation and setup. I am letting Windows 7 manage the card, but there is a separate management app provided by Edimax, if desired. Great performance because the long cable provided lets me fine tune the location of the card. Excellent Value at the Newegg price!

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price!

Pros: Great connection speed, able to transfer files between my computer and my wife's computer at about 30 MBps (notice MB, not Mb) so that is about 80% of the rated speed. That was using either the 5GHz band or the 2.4GHz. I am sure with further testing I could have gotten it higher, that was just plugging in and installing the driver.

It is giving me speeds about 5x faster than the 100 Mbps powerline I had installed on this computer. But the powerline was under-performing by a lot, so that was expected.

I like that it comes with a USB extension/stand for the receiver, so that I can have it in direct line of sight of my router, instead of behind the computer. Not that it really makes a huge difference in most cases, but it is still nice.

Cons: Had some issues getting the driver to install without the software. It seemed like any time I told it to only install the driver it would lock up. Eventually after restarting my computer I got it to work. This may not have been the fault of the included software/driver, as I have several issues with the HDD in that computer (luckily I am getting a SSD to fix that soon too).

Other Thoughts: Very impressed with this wireless adapter. For $20 and the great performance it was an unbeatable deal.

This is just a great little wireless adapter.

On a side note, I have to recommend wireless over a powerline when living somewhere that your wiring might be shared with a neighbor. The powerline worked great until one day I saw them bringing a new washer/dryer into their side of the duplex. After that there would be periods of about 2 hours at a time where it would slow down so much that the internet would be basically unusable. So, basically their electronics could had an effect on my wiring and therefore my internet quality.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for the buck!

Pros: The on sale price is right compared to similar products. The adapter is exactly what it advertises to be, 802.11 a/b/g/n 300Mbps dual-band MIMO 2T2R. Works with Windows XP and Windows 7, did not check any other OS’s. The USB desktop cradle is a big plus, the cable length is about 47inches (1.2m) long. At the time of this writing, the documentation, drivers and software for the device are exactly what are on the Edimax website. Software is easy to understand and use. Able to switch between WZC (windows zero configuration) and the Edimax application from the task bar. Using the Edimax software, more data and status information is displayed about the state of the adapter then I have seen on higher end makers of other adapters. Unit only gets Luke warm even after days of continuous use. Value (bang for the buck) 5 eggs, would of given it 6 eggs for perhaps golden eggs if given the option.

Cons: As with most things nothing is perfect and you get what you pay for. On this one it looks like the shortcut taken are in the software / user application for this unit. The Edimax user application runs a bit strange on Windows XP, somewhat less strange on Windows 7. If control is given to the Edimax application, it will seeks and automatically link to the first open network that it finds, very disconcerting. There are plenty of places to active or connect to a network but I could not find any button or menu item to perform a disconnect operation. You can enter a dummy or incorrect key for a network to get disconnected as a work around. If you use the WZC then this is not a problem. All of these issues are present using Windows 7 but the WZC interface is active also and you can disconnect from there. The only minor knock from a hardware / firmware issue is the frequency domain. This will not connect or see systems that are using the 2.4 GHz frequencies outside the USA. If you travel like me, then don’t expect this to see channels 12 & 13 in the UK or 14 in Japan. My other adapters that are USA purchased will see and connect to these channels if present. The domain restrictions should be on the router / AP end not on the adapter.

Other Thoughts: I am an IT professional, 14+ years, certified at many levels including Wireless technologies. The following is the summary of testing I did on this adapter including some throughput tests.

Nice packaging, not a bad looking device (some say its ugly, to each his own). The USB extension cradle is a definite plus. I bought mine from Newegg and they had a 15% off promotion code at that time. So as good of a deal this adapter is normally, I got it for less. Ran FTP file transfers for throughput testing. All of the testing was done at short range in a lab type environment. Encryption used is WPA2-AES. Connection testing was done, no throughput testing done for the 802.11a/b/g levels. Connecting and operations were fine at the older settings including WEP. Below data is in Mbps AVG / MAX, sending & receiving.

Netgear WNDR3700v2 N600 to Edimax EW-7722UnD / using 2.4 GHz band (max 300Mbps). Unit connects at 300Mbps and generally stays in that area with some speed-shifting from 216-270Mbps at times. The 2.4 GHz ISM band is a junk band no matter where you go, but 2.4 GHz does generally give you better punch to get thru walls and other obstructions. **Receiving test, 77.0 / 85.4 Sending test, 93.3 / 102.9

Cisco AIR-AP1141N N150 single band access point 2.4 GHz band (max 144Mbps). Unit connects at 144.4Mbps when idle and speed-shifts from 117-130Mbps with traffic. **Receiving test, 66.1 /68.7 Sending test, 81.8 / 83.9

Netgear WNDR3700v2 N600 to Edimax EW-7722UnD / using 5 GHz band (max 300Mbps). Unit connects at 300Mbps when idle and speed-shifts from 243-300. The 5 GHz band is much quieter, cleaner and better to use. The higher frequency means it does not have good penetration threw objects like 2.4 GHz does. Well designed receivers using multiple radios and antenna arrays can compensate for most of these issues at the router. **Receiving test, 89.7 / 91.4 Sending test, 123.1 / 127.8

In closing: What is advertised as the aggregate wireless speed is never a reality due to many factors that I will not go into. It is just a fact, 802.11g 54Mbps aggregate in real world is around 11-15Mbps on a 1-to-1 relationship with clean frequencies and no 802.11b in the area. 802.11n has been improving now with 300+Mbps aggregate speeds. I have seen real world speeds of 150+Mbps on a 300Mbps system in the past after tweaking it. In saying that I am very happy with the throughput numbers I presented in this review for this adapter. Not sure why the sending speeds were always faster than the receiving speeds. This could be something with my hardware or the USB ports. This adapter is a good buy. I am not presenting any range / distance testing. The factors that define those types of test relate just as much to the router / AP as it does with the adapter. If you have a high quality wireless router / AP that uses multiple antennas and radios (an array) then you shouldn't have any issues with range for indoor.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performer

Pros: Very easy installation, installed driver and worked right out of the box with good signal strength. I live in a two story house and the router is located on the first floor the adapter was installed in a computer located on the 2nd floor. Both 2.4ghz and 5 Ghz worked well. Price to performance ratio was considered excellent.

Cons: None I can think of, although unknown brand; suits its intended purpose. Very happy with the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsEDIMAX wireless dual-band Adapter

Pros: I was hesitant at first since it was so much cheaper than the other name brand dual-band adapters and I had never head of Edimax but i was pleasantly surprised with the product. I went from 1-5 mbps with my old single band adapter to 5-9 mbps with this new one. weirdly it rarely says the connection strength is above three bars whereas my old one was always full.
The extension cable is a great addition for helping it get the best signal, I wish more wifi adapters came with these.

Cons: its got a cheap ugly looking case but at this price range that's understandable.

Other Thoughts: the 5ghz band gets pretty weak range and my desktop is three rooms away from my router, so it is almost never faster than than the standard 2.4ghz band in my setup
