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.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking good

Pros: Gets a stable network connection
Works with my Raspberry Pi A+
low profile

Cons: long ping time
wireless N 150 is a bit dated to say the least
It acted up when i 1st powered the unit up (packet loss ~10%)
tested it on my laptop without issue, put it back in the pi and it worked fine
not free ;) cost me 6.99

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.

Best regards,

1 out of 5 eggsDon't skimp like I did. Just buy a better adapter

Pros: I received it quickly from Newegg

Cons: Drops signal every 20-40 minutes and has to be removed and reconnected to get it to work again. When working gets awful reception.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a project and was disappointed. Not so much by the poor reception but by the connection drops. It's just not reliable. Kudos to Newegg for making this right for me :)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Antonio,

We are sorry the EW-7811Un nano wireless adapter seems defective.

We have two years warranty for the nano wireless adapters.

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: -Cheap
-Decent Range
-Okay Signal

Cons: -Not worth it for downloading/gaming
-Okay Signal

Other Thoughts: If you have internet that is greater than 4 Mbps you aren't going to reap any benefits of that greater speed with this. I get about 65 Mbps at my home and I only get 4 Mbps from this device. It works fine, no loss of connection, and I get 4 bars from a couple walls away from my router. Just know the speed isn't blazing (but what do you expect for this cheap)!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry the EW-7811Un nano wireless adapter does not work well for ou.

The wireless signal does not really respresent a good 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.
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.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks but not on Windows 10

Pros: Very small, inexpensive, works on Windows 7, easy to install and set up

Cons: No Windows 10 driver.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a small, inexpensive USB WiFi, this may be just the thing for you, but only if you are not using Windows 10 tech preview (as of June 19, 2015). The other drivers just do not work (including Windows 8.1).

Manufacturer Response:

Dear John,

Thank you for the feedback about the issue with preview version of Windows 10.

We ever test an older preview version of Windows 10 and it was ok. We will verify this again.

However, we are sure our products will support Windows 10.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well under Linux w/appropriate driver

Pros: I've used one of these under Linux for about 3 years. It works perfectly with the RealTek RTL8192CU driver. This is ideal for situations with lower data-rate needs.

Cons: N150 only. Use with applications where you don't need high data rates.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Works as described. I plugged it in, installed the driver and it found my WiFi right off the bat. Speeds seem decent.

Cons: Doesn't detect my 5ghz network.

Other Thoughts: For $10 it was a steal. I would recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: -Extremely small
-gives me fast connection equal to having it plugged in
Cheap! Got this on sale for $7

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: keep in mind my internet connection is only 15mbps but my speedtest actually gave off 16mbps lol. I have this plugged into a usb 2.0 port as i had heard some problems with 3.0 compatibility. Just make sure you plug it into a usb 2.0 port and go to the edimax website and download the current drivers for this exact model and you will not have any problems!

2 out of 5 eggsBroke after 7 mos

Pros: Pulls in the signal nice and strong

Cons: the black casing broke off

Other Thoughts: the black part broke off. I assume that the black part was also the antenna. now it doesn't pull in the signal well. I'll buy another, but word of advise, baby it. it's fragile.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Shaun,

We are sorry the black casing of the EW-7811Un nano wireless adapter broke off.

We have two years warranty for our products.
You can get replacement from us within two years.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked... for 2 days

Pros: It's small, it's easy to set-up.

Cons: For my first two days of ownership, it worked like a charm. The next day it started to disconnect itself from the internet every 20 minutes. I have to pull all my cords out the back of my desktop to get to it. I'm at a race against time to write this review, before it decides to conk out.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy anything from this company. Go with a PCiE 2.0 x16 wireless adapter, this thing was a piece of garbage.
