1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: It connects to a wireless point flawlessly.

Lets you read email, and browse the internet.

Cons: Too slow for anything meaningful.

Other Thoughts: Speed test results came back after multiple tests as a max of 1.5mbps, which is atrocious, and shouldn't be even allowed to be sold.

Avoid at all costs.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Jonathon,

We are sorry the EW-7811Un nano wireless adapter does not have good speed for you.

Is it possible the WiFi range is too far for the EW-7811Un adapter? Is it over 30 feet? Are there many obstacle between the computer and your WiFi router?

If you by a chance have a USB extension cord (Type A male to female), you may plug the USB extension cord to the USB port of the computer, then plug EW-7811Un to the USB cord. Make the adapter stand up vertically and face to your wireless router. By doing so, EW-7811Un will be on the outside of the computer case. This will help the WiFi speed a lot.

If you do not have such USB cord, I am afraid you may need a better wireless adapter for longer WiFi distance.
You may consider an USB wireless adapter with an external antenna from any wireless adapter manufacture, or you may refer our EW-7711USn.

For further assistance, please feel free to contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us ". Our tech support team will assist you with any issues. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

Best regards,

1 out of 5 eggsBroke apart on day 2

Pros: Cheap. Small profile. Works with Windows 10

Cons: Second day of use after I took my laptop out of the case the black cap broke off and the antenna snapped off. I now have it stuck inside my USB port with no way to retrieve it without possibly damaging the laptop.

Other Thoughts: I bought this since the internal wireless from Intel in my laptop does not support Windows 8 or 10, and I didn't want a dongle sticking out a mile out from the laptop. Lessons learned.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Michael,

We are very sorry the cap and the antenna of the nano adapter falled off.

Sorry that the adapter is so tiny so it can be hard to take it out.

There is a small hole on each side of the nano adapter. You may use some tools with small tip to insert the hole to pull out the adapter. You also may try pliers.

We provide two years product warranty to this item.
Our service team will help you through the RMA application.
We look forward to the opportunity to serve you soon.

1 out of 5 eggspoor signal

Pros: small

Cons: very slow speeds

Other Thoughts: got it for 6 dollars, works for surfing web, not for streaming or gaming

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Ferhad,

We are sorry the EW-7811Un nano wireless adapter does not have good speed for you.

Is it possible the WiFi range is too far for the EW-7811Un adapter?

Do you use the EW-7811Un on a desktop PC? Please put the EW-7811Un on the front USB port if possible. EW-7811Un will get better signal from your WiFi router and will get faster speed.

If you by a chance have a USB extension cord (Type A male to female), you may plug the USB extension cord to the USB port of the computer, then plug EW-7811Un to the USB cord. Make the adapter stand up vertically and face to your wireless router. By doing so, EW-7811Un will be on the outside of the computer case. This will help the WiFi speed a lot.

If you do not have such USB cord, I am afraid you may need a better wireless adapter for longer WiFi distance.

1 out of 5 eggshorrible!

Pros: as a last resort if all else fails you will get a very slow connection to the internet.

Cons: while it does technically work. it performs terribly. I have tried using this adapter on 3 computers now and every time the signal is only so-so and the connection speed is almost non existent.

Other Thoughts: one star because it does work if all else fails you will get to the internet.. however it will be so slow you won't even won't to use the internet.

I just tested on 4 devices doing speed tests. wired the 3 computers I used were all pretty much identical at 54down/4up. my desktop is just about right on as well with a wireless card. my laptop as well is pretty much spot on near those speeds. my phone was a bit slower around 21down/4up. This adapter however came in at .5up/.5down. no that is not a typo I was getting less than 1Mbps up and down with this adpater.. I have tried this adapter on 2 different computers and had nearly identical results.

even though I got this on sale for $5-10 I wouldn't pay that again and would rather get pretty much anything else.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Chris,

We are very sorry the adapter is not working well for you.

We need more information from you in order to provide you possible solutions.

If the product is defective, we provide two years product warranty to this item.
Our service team will help you through the RMA application after the defective verification.

Other Thoughts: I've had it running 4 days non-stop.
I don't need fast wifi from this just a stable connection ~6ft

it is a nano receiver don't expect much in the line of rage (you know antenna size)

ping test
100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 99165ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1.663/5.611/7.712/0.840 ms

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible USB wifi

Pros: Small

Cons: This is really a terrible USB wifi I have ever used. I am using 25Mbps Internet service, but this stuff only get 2Mbps, sometime It get only 0.7Mbps (using Speedtest to test). But it is not the only thing, It dropped connection to Internet all too often. I simply can do nothing with this item. Do not buy it at any price.

PS: The distance from my router to this usb is around 20 feet - not to far at all.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Duc,

We are very sorry the adapter is not working well for you.

If you use our adapter on a desktop computer, please plug the adapter on the front USB port. It will have better receiption.

You also my try use different WiFi channel from 1 to 11 in your WiFi router. Using different WiFi channel will give you different WiFi performance.

Please feel free to contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us ". Our tech support team will assist you with any issues. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
