Summary: Quiet the amazing little device. You can use it to get wifi to a pc where you can not use a wire. Not only can this be used to put a internet connection on a pc but could also be set up to make a access point. Comes in handy for those devices that can not hook up to the new routers with the new security. Example some of the older hand held games such as psp, etc... Very happy works great.
Summary: okay everyone. This is what happened to me. I bought this 2 months ago. At first, i'm verry happy with this usb. It's tiny, cute, cool, white... yeah whatever it is. Easy to use. Just plug in your usb port and it will works (but first, you must install the usb wireless driver, in the box) So, the main part is here. The internet speed: yeah. fast, but sometimes too slow. I have to unplug it, and then plug it in again to reset it to the normal fast speed.
Summary: The directions were not completely clear to me, but tech support got me going very well. The first few times after re-boot or re-start I had to run repair to get the connection going, but now all is smooth sailing.
Summary: In February 2014 I purchased (not from Walmart) a Hawking Hi-Gain USB Wireless 300 N adapter and spent about 3 times more for it than the TP-Link TL-WN723N Mini Wireless N USB Adapter. I would come back to my desktop and frequently noticed that I was no longer connected to the wireless router in my home. Was about the replace the motherboard thinking that the USB bus had an issue when I saw this adapter at Walmart for $13 - cheaper than a motherboard.
Summary: For whatever reason the wireless adapter inside my laptop began to malfunction, so I decided to buy an external one instead of sending it off for repair or buying a new laptop altogether. Now, having used it for a few months, I can say I'm' happy with my purchase. I will say, though, if you're in a home with lots of interference(walls/other signals;...etc) you'll need to buy an adapter with a high gain antenna.
Summary: On first looks, this wlan adapter looks great. Cheap, small and the signal strength seems better than most adapters of its size/price. When you start to browse the web (not even mentioning downloads), the speed crawls to almost a halt and it brings back a wave of nostalgia to the 56K days. I have tried this on the 2 routers I have at home, one ASUS router and one TP-Link router and the speed sucks on both.
