5 out of 5 eggsWorks Really Well

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN725N Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: No surprises here. Load the software on your P.C., install the USB adapter, enter network paraphrase and password and your done. Don't know about the range since my wireless router is in the same room as this USB wifi adapter. As you might guess I always have 100% signal strength. I needed this since I ran out of ethernet ports on my router.

Cons: Can't think of any and have always had good success with Tp-Link products.

5 out of 5 eggsLittle tweaking then great for the price

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN725N Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: - Small
- Great signal with full bars a few rooms away
- Up to 150Mbps (I only see half 76Mbps due to cable router not allowing for selection of wifi channel width of 40)
- Cheap!!

Cons: Still have random drops in connection though I think it is more my cable modem as same issue with all my wifi equipment.

Does take a bit of tweaking Windows to make it a stable constant and fast connection.

Other Thoughts: Very good once you tweak some settings in Windows. For example so far these changes have worked for me.

“Settings – Control Panel – Hardware and Sound - Power Options” choose “Change Plan Settings” then “Change Advanced Power Settings” and under “USB Settings – USB Selective Suspend Settings” Choose “Disable”. Otherwise Windows will randomly turn off power to your USB ports including the adapter. This results in losing connection to network for a few seconds or more, which is annoying if streaming video or doing any kind of file transfer.

Next Under “Settings – Control Panel – Network and Internet – View Network Status and Tasks” choose your wireless connection to bring up the connection status window. Choose “Properties” down at the bottom left. Then “Configure” at top right. Now “Advanced” then choose “Selective Suspend – Disable” and “Wifi Config – Wifi”. The first stops the adapter from randomly shutting off when streaming music and video and the second helps stop connection from dropping and aids with speed.

In your router make sure you are setup using WPA2 with AES encryption. Anything else can cause it to be slower and/or lose connection randomly.

If you have the option set Channel Width from Auto, 20 or 20/40, set it to 40 MHz. This will get you the best possible speeds over wifi on all your equipment not just the adapter here. 20 gives you half the bandwidth speeds, but can increase range.

Lastly make sure you have the latest version of the drivers from the website for your adapter (V1 or V2).

After all this my connection was strong, fast and stable. Before though it was dropping and really slow. These changes really need to be done for any USB Wi-Fi adapter though for best performance.

Other little things in general for all wireless in your home:

Selecting a Wireless Mode of N (or your favorite) only in the router instead of a mixed mode (Eg. B/G/N). This just helps the router send data more efficiently.

If you have a cell phone use a wireless network scanner app like Android's "WiFi Overview 360" (No it's not my app I just like it and it's free) in the play store to see what channel is best to set your router to. You can then choose one with less interference from other networks. Very helpful if you are in an apt building.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN725N Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: It was plug in play in my Arch-Linux mod server. Great signal and you really can't beat the price.

Cons: None as of now. Happy with the speed, connectivity and strength.

Other Thoughts: Basically if you have a complaint about this you should have spent more money on a higher end model. ;).
It is a very functional nano wireless receiver for a low cost. I may buy a few more for other devices.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Raspberry Pi

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN725N Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: I've been using this for a Raspberry Pi and it takes some work to get it working but its been rock solid since.

Cons: You have to download and install a custom driver for the Raspberry Pi and this takes some work especially if you have the model A with no network port.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work out of box with Linux

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN725N Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: Small size.

Cons: Does not work out of box with Linux so I can not use it. Not worth returning so I threw it away.

Other Thoughts: If you are using Linux and want a good wireless adapter that just works, look else where.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry that you have thrown away this device.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN725N Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2

3 out of 5 eggsSmall size, but poor connectivity

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN725N Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: Really tiny size. About the same size as those Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse dongles.
If you're tech savvy you can compile Linux drivers for "Realtek 8188eu". This is a version 2 of the card, they don't mention it here and has a different chipset than version 1 which is much more robust.

Cons: Real trouble with connectivity. It can see a network, in my case, a smartphone hotspot, but will take numerous tries to connect to it in both Windows and compiled Linux drivers.

Other Thoughts: If you're serious about your wi-fi connection do yourself a favor and get something more expensive with proven chipset.
