5 out of 5 eggsOpenelec Out-of-the-Box Support

Pros: I bought this to test on a Raspberry Pi B+ running Kodi (formerly XBMC) on Openelec (dedicated XBMC/Kodi OS). Support for this adapter worked right out of the box.

5GHz signal is much stronger than typical thumb-size adapters. I have an old house with heavy plaster walls (some brick) and this little gem can stream mpeg2 HD from the basement to my 2nd floor across the house.

I have been running all-day streaming stress tests and find that the adapter performs very well.

This adapter also runs straight off the Raspberry Pi and doesn't seem to require a powered USB adapter. I run the whole setup off my TV's USB.

The separate stand is a nice touch. How they can sell all of this at this price point is beyond me.

Cons: A little large, but you know what you're getting into buying this adapter.

Other Thoughts: Many are buying this because they are pushing the limits of 2.4 GHz and probably have not used 5GHz before. Here are some helpful tips.

Name the SSID of the 5GHz network separate from the 2.4GHz. This is common mistake I have seen others complain about. They think they are seeing poor 5GHz performance when in reality their OS chose 2.4GHz. I like to add a "5" at the end of the SSID I use for 2.4GHz. example: mynetwork & mynetwork5

Don't let your OS auto-connect to 2.4GHz. Usually a "forget" setting, many OS's will assume 2.4GHz signal is a stronger, better connection and auto-connect to the 2.4GHz. They don't take into account other factors that limit 2.4GHz bandwidth like channel crowding from neighboring networks.

4 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: The portability and ability to move a tune the antenna signal strength makes this a great choice for hard to receive signal areas.

Cons: Not Plug and Play, but the software with it allows greater security and options. So I will call this Con a wash.

Other Thoughts: For the price, you can't beat this if you need a directional antenna.

2 out of 5 eggsstrong but slow

Pros: good antenna

Cons: no driver disc was in the box.
I can't get 5ghz to work.
I can only get 72mbps even though the router is capable of 300

Other Thoughts: drivers seem to be problematic. signal quality is good, but can't get the throughput it should be capable of.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry that you have issues with EW-7811DAC.

The max speed of EW-7811DAC is 150Mbps for 2.4Ghz or 433Mbps for 5Ghz 802.11ac protocol.

Maybe your WiFi router use 20Mhz channel width instead of 40Mhz so that the 2.4Ghz speed is 75mbps instead of 150mbps.

EW-7811DAC can see the 5Ghz networks on channel 36, 40, 44, 48, 149, 153, 157, 161, and 165. If your router uses "auto" selection, it may choose a DFS channel like 132 which is not supported by EW-7811DAC.

Please check the Wireless Setting in your WiFi router.

If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact our tech support at (800)652-6776 or write an email to " " directly.

Best regards,
Edimax Customer Service Team
