This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811UTC AC600 Dual-band USB 2.0 Wireless Mini Adapter, ideally for upgrading Laptop, desktop, Macbook or Ultrabook with 433/150Mbps data rates

Pros: Small size

Cons: Does not work with Linux

Other Thoughts: The product description clearly states that the device works witk Linux. No driver is included and the instructions for building the driver do not work. If you use Linux then this is a product to avoid.

2 out of 5 eggsMine Drops Signal in win 7

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811UTC AC600 Dual-band USB 2.0 Wireless Mini Adapter, ideally for upgrading Laptop, desktop, Macbook or Ultrabook with 433/150Mbps data rates

Pros: Fast, easy, low profile

Cons: Stops working. Droped signal rarely for first couple months then stopped working on 2.4ghz band entirely two months ago. Five months old on the 5ghz band it drops so often that it's unusable to play SC2 games on the rare occasions I'm not working and get to play.

Other Thoughts: Driver from Edimax website is from 2013 and says its from Realtek Seimconductor. Windows updates the driver to a 1/14/2014 date.

I don't recommend to anyone.

Manufacturer Response:

The chipset is from Realtek Semiconductor. Therefore, you see Realtek on the driver description.

This problem seems a hardware failure. We have 2 years warranty for our products.

Pros: Great at picking up signals my internal adapter failed at
Great data rate considering it's a usb adapter with a low profile

Cons: Failed less then a month after I recieved
When I emailed their support I got no response, this review is several weeks after I emailed their support.

AVOID!

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great for a bit.

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811UTC AC600 Dual-band USB 2.0 Wireless Mini Adapter, ideally for upgrading Laptop, desktop, Macbook or Ultrabook with 433/150Mbps data rates

Pros: Great

Cons: Worked great for the 3ish days it worked. Going to give it a try again maybe it was just a fluke. Guess I get to test neweggs return policy.

4 out of 5 eggsTiny Powerful WiFi Hardware

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811UTC AC600 Dual-band USB 2.0 Wireless Mini Adapter, ideally for upgrading Laptop, desktop, Macbook or Ultrabook with 433/150Mbps data rates

Pros: Excellent signal strength with minimal profile. Seriously the adapter is tiny, no extra antenna or any of that nonsense. Supports all the current standards and WPA2.

Cons: Setup on Ubuntu required researching drivers and following command-line steps. I didn't think this would be much hassle, but I did need to connect ethernet in the first place. And then a day later, a kernel update overwrote my changes!

So the second time I browsed github and copied the driver archive to USB flash drive, and sneaker-netted it to my new PC with the adapter :p

The hardware clearly works well, but I do have to knock an egg because I bought this specifically for Ubuntu and expect a simpler install process from Edimax.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811UTC AC600 Dual-band USB 2.0 Wireless Mini Adapter, ideally for upgrading Laptop, desktop, Macbook or Ultrabook with 433/150Mbps data rates

Pros: Worked well once I got it installed, ac speeds of 433 Mbps and n speeds of 72 Mbps.

Price was very good.

Tech support was fantastic

Cons: Difficult to install on my Win7 partition (mostly due to Zone Alarm though it seems). Even after I got it installed and working it didn't want to update the driver (on the Win7) to the latest version.

Other Thoughts: The adapter is very small, so it's unobtrusive and not easy to hit or knock loose, but it could be easy to misplace.

I installed this on a laptop with a dual boot, a Windows 7 and a Windows 8.1. It installed flawlessly on the Win8, with the latest drivers and worked great first time, and it continues to work great.

On the Win7 partition it installed but it was disabled and wouldn't work. After emailing their tech support (and several email exchanges) we got it working acceptably well, though with older drivers.

Judy at their tech support narrowed in on the issue right away. It seems that Zone Alarm and Bitdefender don't play well with installing new wireless adapters. I had to completely remove/uninstall Zone Alarm to get it to work. After it was installed and working I did reinstall Zone Alarm and the wireless adapter continued to work as expected.

We got the adapter installed and working in one day, by exchanging emails. I am very impressed with their tech support. The wireless adapter I'm satisfied with.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper in replacing bad WIFI card, never fails to get wifi hotspots

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811UTC AC600 Dual-band USB 2.0 Wireless Mini Adapter, ideally for upgrading Laptop, desktop, Macbook or Ultrabook with 433/150Mbps data rates

Pros: Got this to replace an Intel 6200 card in a refurbished Dell Latitude E6410 that only worked a couple of times before it died. It has worked perfectly with Windows 7 in it had always picked up wifi networks while outside and has yet to lose a signal. The fact that it's the next generation is also a big plus. It's also not too big, which is good in some ways as it makes storing inside a backpack or bad compartment easy.

Cons: Only real cons are that the item is TINY and so is the installation disc. It's so small that I have to keep it in its original box until I use it as otherwise, it can easily get lost and the installation disc is a mini-CD that some DVD drives might not be able to handle.

Other Thoughts: The wifi piece does exactly what I installed it for. Although some have reported problems using it with Windows 8.1, if you are using Windows 7 and I assume earlier versions of Windows, it works like its supposed to and well worth it. Will have to get the AC 1200 version of this at some point.

Highly underrated company.
