5 out of 5 eggsworks great!

Pros: Easy install. Faster speeds. Longer range

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This really sped up my 2 year old i3 laptop, and increased the range. From downstairs east side of a large house, to upstairs, west side. I have a good, dual band router, and like being able to switch between 2.4, and 5.0 GHz, although its really not needed...either band is very fast. I really like the free cradle that came with it too.

1 out of 5 eggsAbsolute junk

Pros: Its small.

Cons: Completely unreliable
Connection seems to interrupt intermittently causing pausing in screen sharing apps.
Died in under a year.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why I didn't just stick with a name brand that I trust.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little Wifi Trasciever

Pros: Reliable, Fast Setup, good speed, Dual Band, Extension USB Extension Cord for clearer signal,

Cons: Needs Cradle, gets warm (As all do), cover cannot be stored on the unit. Uses small CD rom for driver. Not all drives can read these.

Other Thoughts: The best thing about this is the Effortless compatibility for this unit with any computer using windows 7 or 8.1 software. Plug and play with 8.1 but must have driver installed with Win 7 64 bit. USB Extension is a must and a Cradle would be really nice. But this is a solid unit that can be trusted for all types of wireless needs. Got good signal across my entire house even through mortal bathroom wall.

4 out of 5 eggsA Solid Deal

Pros: 1. Range is decent
2. Dual band
3. Plug n play
4. Software adds functionality
5. Worked flawlessly
6. Adaptor included
7. Speed is as advertised
8. Speed does not drop off fast
9. Price

TP-Link has a solid product here. I live in a large house, and have the router on one wall. I have four routers that I tested the product with. All four worked without problems. Both the 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz bands worked. The 5.0 GHz band dropped off first, but it took some distance to go away. The adaptor is nice, because it gives you access from a distance. I used it in a Windows 8.1, 7, Vista and XP machine. I did have to install drivers on Vista and XP. It was plug and play on Windows 7 and 8.1. I tried it with Ubuntu and it worked as well. The through put is advertised as 300 Mbps on each channel. My results were close to this. The software gives you more control. This is especially useful if you need to change channels.

Cons: The size of the unit
2. No AC band for newer routers.
There are not many flaws. Most computers today are laptops. This unit is much better for a desktop because of its size. It is uncomfortable to use with a laptop on your lap. It just sticks out too far. Routers are moving to towards the 802.11 AC, and this is really a last generation unit, though this will not be finalized until 2015.

Other Thoughts: Transfer rates were good. The transfer rate near the router was 5.0 GB in about 2 minutes. Moving about 30 feet from the router, the same transfer dropped to 2 minutes and 30 seconds. 60 feet away and through a floor dropped the rate to 3 minutes 10 seconds. This is not too surprising. I did get better results (a little not much) with a high end D-link router. The older Cisco unit was the slowest of all. This router will overheat and stop working after 2 or 3 days as well. It is more a back-up.
Like I said earlier, this router is best for desktop applications. One of the reasons for the decent transfer rates over long distances is because of the size of the antennas in it. It is too much of a hassle for a laptop. The thing is most laptops come with built in wireless antennas, so maybe it does not make a difference.

The price at $25.00 is very good and makes it a good deal. I did not have the problems with failures that others have reported. I did run it night and day for two weeks without a problem. I have used in multiple machines. Your mileage may vary.

So who should think about this unit? Someone with a desktop. Apartment dwellers and very crowded (lot of wireless networks) buildings/settings also would make this appealing. If you cannot use the 2.4 GHz band the 5.0 GHz band will probably be your friend. The transfer rates are the same. If you are looking for the bleeding edge – this is not it. It is, however, very functional and a great deal.

4 out of 5 eggsTPlink Wireless adapter

Pros: The TPlink TL-WDN3200 arrived in two days from Newegg. Doubled boxed. The contents is the adapter, install disk and an USB 2.0 extension cable. After skimming over the quick install instructions I plugged it into my HTPC in my master bedroom. It uses a powerlin3e adapter currently so I disabled it. Put the install disk in and installed the software. I selected my 2.4GHz 802.11 N and put the password in using the TPlink software. It connected right away. The speed was good. Internet was 10Mb/s up and down (I have a 50Mb/s line) and file transfer was 2.56 Mb/s. I did a few reboots and it would not connect back to the 2.4 Ghz. I had to manually do it and then it disconnected a couple of times on its own.
I ten tried the 5.0 Ghz band. Connected right away. Speeds were 10Mb/s up and down. File transfers were 3.8Mb/s. Tried a couple of reboots and it stayed connected. There were no disconnects like the 2.4Ghz had. I have used other wireless network adapters with this PC in this location and most did not perform well. This is what led to getting the powerline adapter. Most would work a 2.4Ghz but the 5.0Ghz was out of range to my Netgear WNDR4300. This TL WDN3200 appears to work well on the 5.0Ghz band. I watched an entire movie and no buffering or hangs at all.
I like how you can still use the windows wireless interface even if the TPlinnk software is installed.

Cons: The 2.4 GHz band is not that great and I experienced disconnects. Its USB 2.0 not that it makes any difference as speeds are below the 2.0 range.

Other Thoughts: Overall is a great adapter for the money. The 5.0Ghz has some great distance and speed. It worked well for a location that has been problematic for me

4 out of 5 eggsTP Link N600

Pros: Easy set up on both a Windows 7 64 bit laptop and desktop computer. All you have to do is follow the steps in the little installation guide that comes with the adapter! You will be up and going in just a few minutes.
I had no trouble using it in both a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port.
And the 3 foot USB cable is nice to extend the adapter away from the PC to find a sweet spot for a stronger signal. I was getting 4-5 bars in a bedroom, on a laptop at the end of the house, to and from to my Netgear router in the living room.

Cons: The only con that I have to report at this time, is that the adapter itself is large and really sticks out from the side of a laptop if you use it on one.

Other Thoughts: Yes, this adapter is a tad large for use on a laptop, but on a desktop that stays in one place, you can connect it with the USB cable, and move it around with the cable attached to find the sweet spot for the best signal strength.
I have used several different wireless adapters in the past, and they all have issues with dropping the connection once in a while, it seems to be the nature with wireless adapters. There are so many signal interferences inside a house filled with other gadgets, and appliances running, it's just a given that once in awhile you will have to deal with resetting it.
I use a Netgear box for my router to and from the internet, and there is no issue connecting to it.

2 out of 5 eggsiffy

Pros: cheap

Cons: stopped working

Other Thoughts: i bought this to test how good tp-link was and at the recommendation for pen-testing. It will not stay connected and will NOT work in monitor mode longer then 10 minutes. it got really really hot during those times I did manage to have it connect, however it would get so hot I noticed the melty mark that was there when I bought it get bigger. aircrack-ng would freeze up when I used it as well.

now fast forward a few months and now it refuses to connect to any network regardless of what comptuer I attatch it to. (windows server 2012,windows 8.1, windows xp, windows 7) they all will not connect.

the range on this isn't even that much more compared to the internal wireless on the 3 laptops I tested this in. mab ye only 15-20% better at most.

2 out of 5 eggsRange is terrible - 5Ghz is questionable

Pros: Cheap card. Plug n play.

Cons: We couldn't get this card to get very good range, definitely not what a 5Ghz card should do. We got farther range on a little $5 standard wireless USB insert. We are returning this because it just doesn't seem to do 5Ghz ranges.

Other Thoughts: If you need 5Ghz don't buy this, spend a little extra and get one of the others.

2 out of 5 eggsBleh

Pros: It works, sort of. Connected fine to my Netgear dual-band router at 2.5ghz G.

Cons: Couldn't even detect my Netgear router on the 5ghz channel. So it was completely useless for N.

Other Thoughts: This was my last wireless adapter. Wired is so much more reliable, I'm never going back.
