Summary: I am forced to use Century Link as my provider. For many of you I shouldn't have to say more but their best router is a POS at best. I did hook it up to an ASUS router with amazing results and now it sends 5g and 2.4 g signals throughout the house. Recently a guest of ours couldn't pick up the 5g signal so we bought this one to see if it could work. It was a dream. The instant his computer installed the hardware, the 5g signal appeared.
Summary: One of the better USB adapters i've used. As a graduate of a certain big box stores computer geek department I have tried many, many USB sticks. This one definitely stands at the top. The installation is as easy as any USB stick. If you are looking to add 300Mbps WiFi capability to a Laptop or a Desktop that doesn't have an open PCI slot, this is the way to go. The reception for me has been excellent in some very challenging environment.
Summary: Worked very well to make my servers run on the home wireless netowrk until the cable coube be run to ne new office. I was suprised at how well these worked! I wanted something to use when transitioning my office from one location to another. Just to keep them connected until the full wiring could be in place. I had a few options, but using these, I could re-purpose them MUCH easier after they weren't needed on the servers any more.
It works much better than the PCI-e cards I have used

Summary: After going through two consecutive frustrating experiences with inconsistent and improperly working PCI-e wireless cards for my desktop computer, I decided to give this USB Wifi device a chance. It works much better than the PCI-e cards I have used, which came as a surprise and seemed counter-intuitive as I had read internal cards give better performance. I would recommend this device. For reference, I am using Windows 7 Home 64-bit.
Summary: Love this for my laptop. With some 24Hz interference this boosts the signal pass the interference insuring an excellent signal that almost never gets dropped. Well worth the money even if I'm asked why the microphone looks like that? LOL Or if it's a network shield. It's funny to hear what people think it is, even when I wish they won't disturb me.
Summary: It busted my laptops WiFi connection speed 10 times! Installs easy and quickly. Works out of the box. I paired it with ASUS WiFi router. It is USB, so make sure you do not pull it from USB connection without disconnecting first. I killed my first device doing that.
Summary: Bought it to replace a Belkin USB adapter and it's very reliable from day one. It has a much better range, faster connectivity and never drops the connection. Minor drawbacks are that it's larger in size, and although it comes with a USB extension cable, it isn't a USB stand. However, these pale into insignificance compared to its superior performance.
Pros: Dual band, Great range, Never drop connection
Summary: I had an issue with my Linksys AE2500 freezing and cutting out during upload. This thing certainly does not have that problem. Great reception and fully compatible with Windows 8.1 Pro. A little pricey for a USB network adapter but I guess you get what you pay for and it's worth every penny.
Pros: -Great Reception, -Plug and Play with Windows 8.1 Pro
