TRENDnet TEW-649UB Mini Wireless N Speed USB Adapter
26 February 2015
Summary: The USB itself works fine, but only when close to the modem. I bought this for my room (which is down stairs, the modem is up stairs) and it had fairly bad and slow connection. However it works great with my other computer, which is up stairs, somewhat, near the modem.
Summary: I have puchased [10-12] of these over the last two years and was truly happy with them until I recently bought the TRENDnet Wireless AC600 Dual Band USB 2.0 Adapter, TEW-804UB. This one (TEW-649UB) performs well but there is NO COMPARISON to the newer model (TEW-804UB)!
Summary: Awesome Wireless USB. So discrete. I bought two of them and both worked. I'll be buying a third soon, but with 805.11 ac and at a higher Mbps rate. I use it on my XP machine ( music server), windows 7 and windows 8.1. Best purchase
Summary: technically works but freezes on 144p while watching movies... 360p? forget about it switches down to 144p then freezes halfway though a 2 min video. tried driver on cd, downloaded from trendnet website (at 68kb/s) no dice..
Summary: advertised '150Mbs'. have connected multiple devices... laptops and desktops... speeds range from 35-55Mbs much better than G speed... but FAR from N speed. unit works... easy setup... just MUCH slower than advertised.
Unfortunately I have to concur with the lower rating on this one.

Summary: I recently acquired use of my resort's free hotspot for my computers so I've really had to work hard on finding good adapters. Of the several I bought, this one was the least efficient, bringing in about 6-10Mbps on average. And this is a faster N type adapter.

25 February 2014
Summary: I bought this device in May 2013, and it is now February 2014 and this device just died for no apparent reason. It worked fine otherwise. I guess TRENDnet's quality control departments needs to step it up a notch.
Summary: The adapter worked fine but was quite slow. Even after connecting at 150Mb to the router I would still only get 600KB in transfers between my server and my PC. The adapter would work fine for basic internet use but not for LAN traffic.
