Summary: I've had a home network for well over 10 years now. I went wireless about 5 years ago when my wired router died (circa 2009). I don't know if an N adapter was available at that time, and either way, I was unaware of the pending change, and installed a G wireless adapter--which served me well since.
Summary: I bought this adapter around 8 months ago, and it has started to act up. It randomly cuts me out from my connection and even stops working at times. Also, the software it comes with actually would make my current window inactive and stop me from being able to access my desktop.
Summary: I needed this for running a few adapters in master mode on linux. The problem is that at power-on, there is a race condition or duplicate ID issue that prevents the devices from being uniquely recognized if you have more than 1 plugged into the same computer.
Summary: i bought these adapters because they used to use the atheros chipset, which is basically plug and play in linux. the adapters amazon has in stock now at the v4 adapters, which use the realtek chipset. if you aren't familiar with linux, it's a real headache to get the drivers installed and working.
Summary: This WiFi adapter works well. It always connects and doesn't drop the connection. I use this on a linux desktop machine running debian. I did have to install the correct module from the repository to get it to be recognized but that's to be expected on linux.
Summary: This is simply one of the best ideas i have seen in a long time this is so far working great. I have been using it for a day now and i am getting 120 Mbps which is all i need. If you are looking for a simple way of getting wireless internet to one of your desktop computers or something else this is...
Works perfectly as long as you don't wander too far.

Summary: My internal wifi card was rendered inoperable after a registry cleaner I downloaded erased some important drivers. I did a little online comparison with both price and performance of usb wifi adapters. I settled on the TP Link and I'm glad I did. Quick easy installation. Up and running in minutes.
Summary: This wireless adapter installed flawlessly on an older desktop computer running Windows 7. I was able to connect it to my homegroup using the wireless network which included a new Windows 8.1 computer and older laptop running Windows 7.
Summary: Was not able to make it work with Windows 7. Tried to download several of the drivers from the site, but nothing worked on my computer. Maybe there is a way to make it work, but it was definitely not straight-forward to me.
