Great equipment, just couldn't use it!

  • Summary: I'm pretty sure it would have been a great item, but the TP LINK modem I purchased wasn't compatible with my carrier, so I didn't get a chance to use it.

Good hardware, very tiny dongle (which is good)/

Rosdi Kasim, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this about a month ago. Initially I was looking for Asus brand but was out of stock, so I settle for this since it is very affordable and very small. The installation process was not hard, but could have been a lot easier.

Excellent download speeds!

Printer Hater, Amazon

  • Summary: So far so good. Getting excellent download speeds of 110 mbs !! Faster than the 2 year old laptops original speed before it's built in adapter failed. Faster even than the ethernet book up i have been forced to use lately. This is on a standard usb 2.0 slot.

  • Summary: I've had this for atleast 3 months now, works fine. I just unplug it when I'm not using it. Everyone who claims they burn out must have never removed them. They have no heatsink, fan or any way to cool themselves so they are obviously going to burn out faster.
  • Pros: Small, convient, Fast. 126.2/mbs in 1800 sq/ft Townhouse - opposite ends. Asus RT68-u Router
  • Cons: Runs warm.

Not worth the upgrade

Fredric E., Newegg
12 February 2015
  • Summary: I was just too slow for the return policy!
  • Pros: Small
  • Cons: Didnt work in one of my ASUS laptop USB ports, but it would in others. Must use in the USB port it was installed in, not others. Software takes over the WIndows Wifi software. Wasn't much faster in 2.4n than my laptop's builtin wifi.

Do not buy, use Dixie cups and string for better results

JR "JR", Amazon

  • Summary: DO NOT BUY...... Dlink was at one point the go to company, no more. They are making junk and not standing behind their products. This is the latest and last product from them that I will ever buy. The unit is brilliantly marketed too bad the money is all in the marketing and not in the technology.

Sending this back.

Sara Stadler "Sara", Amazon
21 November 2014
  • Summary: I HATE this adapter! Connecting to the internet after being in sleep mode is a PITA, every time! I have to really mess around with it, plug it and unplug it- try different ports- I often get a message stating that one or more of my USB ports are malfunctioning, I go into the stupid and seemingly...
