This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300 Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/ WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP / WPA / WPA2, Plug & Play in Windows 10 (32 bit & 64 bit)
Pros: Painless install: excellent range. My now-former adapter was an Edimax, which found three signals and erratically connected to my router in the next room. The TP found seventeen signals: my router and fourteen others, three of those not password-protected and ready to use (I didn't). Installing the TP was a matter of connecting the cable, doing the CD install, rebooting, entering my router's PW, and--ta da. This is a vanilla office desktop, Win7 Home Premium.
Cons: Wasn't freeREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Adequate basic mother board. Does what its supposed to do.
Cons: The tricky little problem is this: boot order is determined by physical SATA port selection, and the SATA ports aren't numbered on the PCB or in the manual. If the HDD is plugged into a SATA port with a higher number than the one into which the optical drive is connected, it won't boot. Changing setup doesn't solve the problem. Turns out that the HDD should be connected to SATA2, which is top left (toward the black block--SATA1?), Plug the optical into SATA5--top right. The default boot order--low SATA first--then works correctly every time. Took me 2 hours to finally figure this out.
Other Thoughts: As usual, the manual's nigh-unto useless.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small; self-powered; idiot-proof installation
Cons: Does indeed extend the range of my AT&T router, and shows connected on my Win7 desktop, but does not connect reliably to the Internet. If/when you get get online, the question is "How long before the connection drops?" That can be anywhere from 1-10 minutes.
Other Thoughts: Frustrating little device. I finally gave up trying to make it work, installed a really long Ethernet cable, and tossed this gadget out. End of problems.READ FULL REVIEW
