5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Perfect

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: With the stock antenna it works great. Great range and very fast scanning and connectivity. I'm hitting 300 Mbps with a N router on a router 2 floors up on the opposite side of the building.

After replacing the antenna with 8Db high gain omni the range is insane. I can see all the networks for a few blocks. Wifi speeds exceeds 150Mbps throughput easily.

Way better then anything the other brands are capable of pulling off.

Cons: No cons other then the stock antenna not being as good as the 8Db antenna.

Other Thoughts: I took the advice of other reviewers and installed 2 TP-LINK TL-ANT2408CL Antenna's. The difference is truly significant and VERY worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Performance

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Great Performance

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The connection manager that installs is buggy. I would download the latest driver and store it on a flash drive, then point to it when installing.

1 out of 5 eggsAnother junk adapter

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Fast until it stopped working

Cons: constant signal drops, constantly turning off, 5Ghz died

Other Thoughts: Well it worked great for a few hours then it went down the drain. My whole system is brand new including the router. When it gets hot it just drops the signal and turns off like other cheap adapters. The 5Ghz never came back despite reinstalling the drivers 10 times. Back to the store for a refund

5 out of 5 eggsWow!!!

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: I must say that this is a snappy and high gain device. I need something with more speed and gain and this does it flawlessly. My connection is @ 117 Mbps compaired to my old device @ 72 Mbps.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Usb 3.0 is a big plus, also the connection never fails me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product Great Service

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Flexible design - allows use of USB cradle or direct usb attachment
Easy setup - after I got the box open - no more that 5 minutes to attach the antennas, install software and drivers. Immediately recognized my home networks - done.
Greatly improved reception and speed. In area where I am not able to get a signal on internal wifi - now have 7mb download speeds

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The service from newegg was great. I am a first time buyer - wow - ordered late on 23rd received on 27 - using regular shipping.

I have used this on a usb 2.0 windows 7 laptop and on my samsung ultra book usb 3.0 windows 8 - both installs were very easy. The usb wifi allows me to use my ultrabook in every room in the house - no more netflix stutter!
I have not tried it yet, but device allows for use as a hot spot -

5 out of 5 eggsJust Awesome

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Super fast, with my old setup I was getting max 1.5 mbs, plugged this thing up and I'm getting downloads of close to 5 mbs. Has a nice long cord and mount

Cons: The mount doesn't stick to anything, so depending on where you have it a bump might knock it around. But, otherwise stable

3 out of 5 eggsGreat hardware product, spotty drivers

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: * Good, strong and reliable signal reception.
* USB 3.0 support.
* Longer than average USB cable length on the cradle allows for a greater range of placement options.
* Uses a sturdy Realtek RTL8812AU chipset

Cons: * Extremely poor Linux driver support (see Other Thoughts)
* Extraneous "helper" software for Windows that is more of a hindrance than an assistance.

Other Thoughts: The Netis provided drivers for Linux, both on the disc and from their website, just flat out fail to install and the included firmware for the RTL8812AU is two versions behind. When running the install shell script, it fails on compile and refers to a log that doesn't get created, leaving one very frustrated in trying to find out how it failed. I had to download the latest firmware and drivers for the Realtek chipset from Git, compile them and install them manually before the product would work at all. Providing a .deb AND .rpm package would have made installation a much easier task.

Unfortunately, Netis' support site seems to assume that everyone who is using this product under Linux will be running Ubuntu and suggests a program called "HardInfo" to help with getting drivers. This program is no longer maintained and does not support the chipset. It's an absolute dead end.

The Linux kernel I am using is 3.15.9, which is the latest stable release as of two days ago. OSes tested were Linux Mint 17, CrunchBang 11 and CentOS 7. I ended up with Linux Mint 17 as the product seemed to work best and be the most stable on that distro.
