This product works as advertised. It is small and mighty.

Pros: Item is small and works with USB2. Connects well with my at&t wireless "N" modem. It also worked on a new cable router wireless Modem.

Cons: This item requires a network driver which was supplied on a Mini-Optical Disc. I had to use a second computer and copy the drivers onto my personal USB Flash drive. The driver's worked fine from the Flash Drive. I used this on a Windows 7 Computer. I have heard if the wireless device is too close to the router it causes problems for routers and adapters. The signal strength is often better further away from the router.

Other Thoughts: I used this wireless "ac" adapter on a Windows 7 computer. Computer is on the first floor and the wireless router was in the basement. I have multiple wireless devices in my house. 3 computers, 2 smart phones and one tablet. After upgrading to Win 10 it needs no driver I get a 5 bar signal on it. I purchased multiple adapters because it worked so well and they are still working Jan 12 2019.

Cheap, simple, and works well

Pros: It has worked VERY well on a 9 year old Sony laptop running Windows 10 32-bit. Set up was easy, and I haven't had issues with losing connection, heat, latency or poor signal strength in my apartment. Occasional video streaming, online games, and web browsing haven't had any problems so far.

Cons: Not the fastest 802.11ac network adapter, but for anyone wanting an upgrade for an older laptop (as was my situation) that drawback won't be an issue. For an older laptop that's about as much as you'll get for throughput anyway...for a newer laptop with USB3.0/3.1 (and especially if you need the extra speed) you may want to invest in something with better throughput. I haven't had any issues with it otherwise.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had to really push this device for range...my apartment is only 900 sq ft so if you have a larger home, or if you're going to be using it in an office environment you may have a different experience. Also, I've only used it for viewing video or doing big transfers on a few occasions, though it didn't have any problems then...other than that most of my use has been web browsing, transferring scanned documents, and letting my daughter play educational games online. That being said, I've been VERY happy with the performance of this network adapter. The built-in 802.11n adapter in my laptop apparently has hardware problems and was causing random crashes, but this adapter gave my old computer new life and I haven't had any problems with it so far.

Upgrades an aging laptop!

Pros: Easily installation, quick to connect, compact.

Cons: Not USB 3.0. Imagine the potential speeds!

Other Thoughts: Purchased this because my silly Lenovo G580 did not support dual-band connections. Now it connects great at coffee shops.

reliable and good value for dual band

Pros: connected at 72 MBs to my router. Speedtest results are 30.10 MBs for down load and 24.21 MBs for upload to internet provider, Spectrum. So Netflix and Pandora are fine.

Cons: Have not had any problems with this device. I did see the AC 5 GHz speed as faster but signal lower and range was shorter. It may be a limitation on the router as other devices , like phones and tablets had similar results.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again if I needed another Wireless adapter.

It turns on. That is about the only plus.

Pros: Small, portable.

Cons: SLOW. SLOW. SLOW. The biggest downside with buying from newegg is the cost to return this along with rma fees. If i get back $1 i may be lucky. I will purchase items like this locally in the future. The latest driver for this is roughly 2 years old. Maybe realtek makes some good audio and ethernet stuff, but their wireless chipsets are just dismal.

Other Thoughts: I had a previous Edimax usb adapter with a realtek chipset and i should have learned my lesson. It was awful. This is only slightly better. I am on the 105 down xfinity plan. I get 126 on ethernet, and 100+ on my galaxy android as well as 100+ on my laptop.
With this adapter, which is located very close to my laptop, I struggle to get 45 down. I received it yesterday and tried it on both 2.4 and 5ghz. It's just plain slow. Webpages load slow, and speed tests are just pathetic. I am using the latest drivers from the edimax website.

Works Great Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Pros: Works great. Tiny. Works better (connects at greater strength) than the two external antennae PCIe WiFi card I was using. Used the drivers supplied on mini-CD that came with it.

Cons: It did not like my USB3 PCIe card. Works fine after insert into mobo USB2 port (next to LAN port), and rebooting.
