Wireless-N Data Rate up to 150Mbps
EW-7811Un complies with wireless IEEE802.11b/g/n standards. Built with the latest wireless technology, the EW-7811Un can increase your wireless coverage up to three times as much and greatly help reduce "dead spots" compared to your old 11g adapter. The transmission data rate can go up to 150Mbps when connected to a 802.11n device, with the signal traveling further and connecting much more stably as compared to previous 802.11g networks.

 

EW-7811UN

 



Supports Green WLAN
The EW-7811Un has adapted a clever protocol in smart transmission power control. The adapter smartly adjusts transmission output by distance and CPU offload to help reduce power consumption when wireless is idle. With the green WLAN technology, the power consumption can be reduced by up to 50%. The adapter does not just provide you with the best wireless technology in the world, it also cares for the environment by using less energy - and cares for your pocket by saving you money on those electric bills.

Portable and Compact Design
The EW-7811Un is currently the smallest wireless adapter. The compact design of the EW-7811Un is convenient to carry for all mobile users. It also means you will not be able to accidentally snap your USB adapter anymore as it is hidden very well once it is plugged into the USB port.

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far, So Good

Pros: This tiny dongle was almost completely plug-and-play, and it worked flawlessly with my home network. Installed without drivers on Raspberry Pi B+

Cons: The WiFi light blinks. That can be kind of agitating.

Other Thoughts: Bought to replace CanaKit WiFi dongle which based on numerous reviews is not a terribly reliable device. And those reviews were right. Mine died after 3½ months.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this device

Pros: Have three of these in service and all work well. Like the way it blinks blue while in use to verify operation. Utility that comes with the device is very simple yet very useful.

Cons: If you upgrade the driver and remove the Edimax utility before doing so, the new driver does not have the utility and Edimax expects you do use the Windows wireless utility which is horrible. Found that if you reinstall the original driver with utility from the mini-CD then just do an update driver, the Edimax utility will be retained.

Other Thoughts: If they made a dual-band adapter just like this with the exact same form-factor, it would be awesome. This adapter is small enough to leave plugged in all the time without really having to worry about shearing it off by catching it on something.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product now. I'm writing a new review because I can't update my old review.

Pros: Great Price, small form factor, plug and play for windows 7.

Cons: Had to change the settings to get full speed. For a year I could not get greater than 4 Mbps down with this dongle. I did some real investigation into the issue and ended up in the device manager menu looking at some of the different settings and options. Long story short, after disabling the 802.11n wifi option I am now pulling full speed with no issues.
I have ATT with a company provided modem/router and a windows 7 PC. If you are having a issue with the speed try this and you just might be surprised.

Other Thoughts: My last review was titled "OK- You get what you pay for". This is meant to update that review now that I figure out the problem. I was not able to successfully modify my old review.
I am unsure if the issue was related to the device, my service provider, the router hardware, or some other hardware conflict but all is great now.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy, cheap, done!

Pros: Easy to install, worked first time.

Cons: If installing on laptop with wifi, disable existing unit first or you might have issues.

Other Thoughts: Less than $10.00 for what used to take cracking open the case, adding a card, etc. Cant fathom anyone having difficulty except unless it's self inflicted.

2 out of 5 eggsDefective...

Pros: I have another one of these I ordered a year ago that works great.

Cons: This one is defective and gets .3 mbps a second at most. What really sucks is that shipping to mail it back is half the cost of the item.

Other Thoughts: If I'd ordered this from some other places online they would have just comped it because it's so cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Small, the same height as a "flush" wireless mouse adapter.

And the price, since it was on sale.

I used it to replace the built in wireless card in my laptop.

Cons: The only thing was that even under Windows 7, you'll have to load the provided device driver (mini-CD).

This isn't much of a "con"... ;-)

Other Thoughts: Under Linux, I used the windows "wrapper" to get the driver installed.

It is reported to work without any such "tricks" under kernel 3.x. I'll test that soon.

1 out of 5 eggsMixed feelings

Pros: Cheap, conveniently small, etc.

If you want to relive the 90's where connections frequently dropped, loading web pages took minutes and sometimes hours this is the product for you.

Cons: Too unreliable. Very disappointed in this product. It seems like anything as small as a sneeze will make you lose connection no matter how close you are to an access point. Online gaming, skype? Forget about it. Half the time can't even load a YouTube video properly without dropping the connection. Tried it with multiple computers: laptop, desktop, and raspberry pi with similar poor results.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy if you want something reliable. Do not use if you need to download anything > 1GB or if you plan to use for online gaming.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear AJ,

We are sorry that our EW-7811Un does not work well for you.

We need more information in order to provide you assistance. Since you have tried multiple computers, maybe this unit is defective.

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.

1 out of 5 eggsEDIMAX EW-781 N150 USB 2.O nano

Pros: none

Cons: IT Professional:
I tried this USB WIFI adaptor in three different systems. Windows does not recognize it at all. The install disk was no help. You are better off downloading the drivers and installing before using the component. A older Dell desktop it crashed the system. Newer systems accept it better but once the drivers are found and installed. It will not connect to the WIFI source. Manually input of the network and sign in has no affect. It will connect and then do nothing but blink. Since windows will not auto connect there is no other options. A waste of time and money. Too complicated for the average user and too much time installing a simple device. Then it just does not work. There are similar products for the same money that installs itself automatically and connects easily. I would suggest Netgear and ASUS instead.

Other Thoughts: A waste of time and money, buy NETGEAR or ASUS for the same money. Auto install and connect without crashing your computer.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry that our EW-7811Un does not work well for you.

We need more information in order to provide assistance.
There is a built in driver in Windows 8.1 system. EW-7811Un is a plug and play in Windows 8.1. Maybe there is an existing wireless driver in the Dell desktop computer and it conflicts with our EW-7811Un so it crashes the system.

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,
Edimax Tech Support Team

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: Very small.
Low power consumption.
Decent throughput for its form factor.
Works great with linux.

Cons: It's limited to 150 megabit/s, but without an external antenna, I am not surprised or disappointed.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to connect my Raspberry Pi to my network. It's perfect for the job. I didn't have any problems with drivers and the connection is stable. The power consumption is low enough that it doesn't interfere with the RPi in the least. I'm quite pleased with this purchase.
