1 out of 5 eggsdisappointing

Pros: Sometimes works

Cons: The signal fails quiet often. It has difficulty connecting to a network that has a password. I am very disappointed with this product and would never recommend it to anyone. This a very unreliable piece of electronic. I have not written a review for a long time but the low quality of this product pushed me to warn other buyers of these issues. Stay away and buy a different product. Maybe I just got a bad lemon out of the batch though.

Other Thoughts: Un reliable

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Vinny,

We are sorry to hear of the troubles you encountered with connections and dropped signals. May we firstly recommend within your router itself you set the wireless channel to a static channel to see if this helps you in resolving any potential stability issues. Secondly to test if there is any potential hardware/software conflicting issues may we recommend installing this device within another pc to see if you are able to replicate the issue.

Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks beautifully

Pros: I picked this up along with a high(er)-gain antenna (TP-LINK TL-ANT2408C) to help boost the signal just a little bit more. Using the two of them pulled in a 4-bar signal where the old adapter would pull in 0-1 bars.

The adapter is small, sleek and installs as you would expect. The included antenna rotates for best positioning.

Cons: No cons here. Works just as you would expect it to and it does it well.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Horrible speed. I have 4 bars and its running slow but on my laptops internal wireless network card, its absolutely perfect. Im 30ft away from a netgear n600 and I cant even get on to the steam website.

Other Thoughts: Hugest waste of money, should be deactivated.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear lleeoo66,

We are sorry to hear of the connectivity issues you are encountering in regards to the speed. If you have not already attempted to do so. May we suggest you try to disable and uninstall the drivers for your internal wireless network card on this pc. This, at times, could cause a potential conflict and thereby issues such as you have described. 2ndly may we suggest setting the routers wireless channel to a static channel such as 1,3,6,9 for example to see if this might help you in resolving your issues. Lastly we would also recommend testing within another pc to see if the problems persist/follow the device itself as this would also be a great way to further test and determine if the issues is associated with the device/drivers or a potential conflict within this particular system and the drivers. Should you need any further help please do not hesitate to contact our technical support department listed at the number below.

Best Regards!

1 out of 5 eggsGlad it was cheap!

Pros: None.

Cons: I bought this because I found myself using my laptop and net book in an area where I only get "poor" signal strength when using the internal wifi. It is advertised as a high gain wireless USB adapter however this USB adapter shows only fair signal strength in locations that I have excellent signal strength using the internal wifi. This adapter doesn't even see the wifi network at all in the area that I get poor but usable signal using the internal wifi.

Manufacturer Response:

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Great to have in your tool arsenal if you are a tech.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good

Pros: low cost, easy setup, decent range

Cons: not the fastest

Other Thoughts: of the several wireless adapters I've tried, including a worthless Linksys, this performs the best. I first got 22Mbps(25 is my ISP's limit) but since then only 18-19Mbps, which is OK for most
tasks, streams video with no lag. With cable it's steady 24-25.
Have not checked for errors. Overall, a good value & steady performance so far.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks without issues

Pros: Small, works well with the new Netgear router that was purchased after buying this. (Router was bad)

Cons: My only complaint is that the protector cover for the USB plug was very easily lost after only a few days. There is no place to attach or store it on the antenna. So, unless you place it someplace where it will not get forgotten. It's gone.

Other Thoughts: I've recommended this item to three other people, namely for it's ease of installment as two of them had little to no tech knowledge. They were able to install it and have it running in no time at all.
