Not for casual linux admins

haxwithaxe, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: The linux drivers for this device are not ready for prime time. The chipset is ralink/mediatek and the sourcecode for the drivers is available but the code was written against an older version of the kernel so it needs some TLC to compile.

Much improved wireless connectivity for older devices

C. Gafton, Amazon
1 December 2014
  • Summary: The adapter works well, but I'd like first to address an issue with the advertising - the marketing droids keep pushing the "600Mbit/sec" speed capability of this adapter, but then forget to mention in equally bold letters that this is an USB 2.0 device, and the USB 2.0 port speed itself is limited...

Worked fine on Win 7 but not on Win XP

C. Fernandes, Amazon
28 November 2014
  • Summary: I tried this out on a Windows 7 Professional laptop first. And the results were good, nothing exceptional though. My laptop (Dell) wireless is not bad and it works fairly well. But if I'm near the router I get about 17Mbps whereas when I'm away (like upstairs in the den, router is downstairs), then...

Great product w/ driver issues

Kristy D., Newegg
23 September 2014
  • Summary: Deducting one egg for tplink being lazy with driver updates. They should just post mediateks update so people do not have to go look for it.
  • Pros: Works as intended with decent speeds.. Came with free cradle.. Mediatek has a stable driver dated 8/13/2014
  • Cons: TP link has not updated their drivers since '13 and it is not stable wifi would disconnect when under load. Windows installs a driver that is different but doesnt see 5G... You have to goto mediatek site and download the updated driver for the RT5X7X and it fixes all the issues.

TL-WDN4200:: Works with Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit after tracking down an updated driver from MediaTek

R. DECASTRO "intelligo", Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: Like many Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit users, this dual-band adapter failed to see the 5 GHz band of my router out of the box. Great 2.4 GHz speeds (195 Mbps), but disappointing not to have get the expected 5 GHz speedball.

Works on Windows 8 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit

Jim C., Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: For Windows 8 64-bit, you must download the updated driver (2013) from the tp-link website. Will not work out of the box without that driver despite instruction manual stating otherwise. Windows 7 64-bit worked out of the box with CD driver install.

Good USB Network Dongle

Greg V., Newegg
2 August 2014
  • Summary: This is not a review of the wireless configuration utility, I always advocate a minimum number of application layers to accomplish the job, so if there are windows drivers (which there are) that is all that is needed.
  • Pros: This is a good device if you are looking for a simple to use standard network adapter. It's a dual band device and the price point is very reasonable. It has a sleek yet sturdy design and basically just looks like a flash drive! -802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz -802.11 a/n 5GHz -300Mbps -Easy connect WPS but...
  • Cons: There aren't too many cons with this device overall it is very good and a very good price point. I don’t like internal antennas, they simply don’t work as well as an external one. I wouldn't mind paying an extra few bucks for an external. Also the protective cap for the USB plug is kind of loose,...

Great little Wifi Trasciever

Derek S., Newegg
28 May 2014
  • Summary: The best thing about this is the Effortless compatibility for this unit with any computer using windows 7 or 8.1 software. Plug and play with 8.1 but must have driver installed with Win 7 64 bit. USB Extension is a must and a Cradle would be really nice.
  • Pros: Reliable, Fast Setup, good speed, Dual Band, Extension USB Extension Cord for clearer signal,
  • Cons: Needs Cradle, gets warm (As all do), cover cannot be stored on the unit. Uses small CD rom for driver. Not all drives can read these.
