4 out of 5 eggsCheap and Cheerful.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: - Omnidirectional, Dual Band. and Adjustable.
- Good down, up speeds and low latency.
- Small, looks great. small enough to conformably attach to my side panel.
-USB, meaning easy transfer from PC to PC.
-One of the cheapest Dual Band 300Mbps Wireless Adapters on Newegg.

Cons: -Drivers! Can sometimes take multiple installs and uninstalls to get working properly on Windows 7 - 64 Bit. They also flat out don't work if you have multiple TP-Link wireless adapter drivers, even if they are different models.
- Doesn't use 5Ghz
- The button on the Adapter seems functionally useless. When I press it literally nothing happens.( And yes, I had to dig pretty deep for that small potato. Thanks for asking)

Other Thoughts: Overall the wireless adapter is great value, I use it for gaming, video streaming and surfing the web. It fits my needs and my partner's perfectly. This is actually the second one I've bought as I bought one for my own build a while back. Hasn't failed me yet.

5 out of 5 eggsTP-LINK TL-WN822N

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: - hooks at 300Mbps, and stays there
- driver/util disk included
- rubber feet
- usb cable
- 14.99 on sale

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this is installed on a midtower fileserver on home network. going from 54Mbps to this 300Mbps does make quite a difference. transfer speed to tablets is about five times faster.
it does look like an iDog or iRabbit with a green blinking nose.
good purchase!

5 out of 5 eggsTP-Link=Wabbit Season

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: I've installed a lot of these when I did cable/dsl for a contractor. The range on this is incredible. I live on a farm and can pick up my neighbor's signal a mile away.

NewEgg reviews show a lot of negativity but the "*.* sight" is all positive. I hope I can sway people to be open minded as well as well-researched. I have had no problems and neither have my friends who all recommended this to me.

Cons: The rabbit ears look so cute I was forced to glue googly-eyes to it and name it Usagi-San.

1 out of 5 eggsRandomly Drops Connection (DO NOT BUY)

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Cheap, Plug n Play (with Windows 8.1)

Cons: Frequent connectivity drops. In Windows 8.1 every several minutes you must click the "wireless" connection icon in the bottom right corner of the screen, and then click "troubleshoot" to get the TP-LINK to reconnect. It simply disconnects at random every few minutes. There is no resolution for this issue, from the internet or TP-LINK. Also judging by the forums, this issue has been going on for well over a year at this point with no resolution.

DO NOT BUY.

Other Thoughts: Just send your money elsewhere if you're running Windows 8.1

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

We are sorry to see that this device hasn't worked out for you.

If you haven't done so already, then I would suggest trying to download the driver from our site at: http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=&model=TL-WN822N#down

We have added support for Windows 8.

Another suggestion maybe to download a driver for your particular chipset.

Depending on what version you have, you may be using one of these chipsets.
V3: Realtek RTL8192CU
V2: Atheros AR9002U-2NG
V1: Atheros AR9001U-2NG

If you are are still experiencing some issues then you may contact our technical support team, or you may contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com.

We hope we can help you resolve this issue.


Best Regards!

1 out of 5 eggsAwful wireless adapter

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Lasted about a month
high speed when it decides to work

Cons: Drops constantly
TP_Link has awful drivers which haven't seemed to help a bit.

Other Thoughts: Get a cheap internal wireless card for your desktop if this is what it is for. This one is not worth its $27.99 price tag

3 out of 5 eggsTP-Link TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: It's great when you don't have a computer with a wireless card slot available, ala small form factor. Appears to have a long range for accessing the router.

Cons: It's somewhat not believable that the signal will sustain the speed as I could not stream a 1080P video from my computer to another computer with this wireless device.

Other Thoughts: I decided to just go into the attic and hard wire a line to the other computer so there is virtually no lag.

5 out of 5 eggsTP Link WN882N

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Price $12 (Love you NewEgg!)
Simple to install unlike my other ones.
full signal with no drops.. HUGE!! awesome!

Cons: It's not free and it doesn't come with an NVidia GTX 980 either ;)

Other Thoughts: I WAS using a small wireless dongle and was 'okay' with 72 Mbps on a GOOD day and 43-54 on average. This TP Link is pulling 144Mbps (my dsl is limited here) with no drops nor packet losses.. VERY good! I can play online games once again! YAY TP to the rescue! ( i know, that sounded bad.. lol) Thanks NewEgg for some wicked deals! ~from a broke chump =D
