NOT an Atheros chipset!

Yuri B, Amazon
10 July 2013
  • Summary: This card's drivers are Windows-only. If you searched for it and think it'll work with airmon-ng or reaver, it will NOT. This is version 4.1, which uses the Realtek RTL8192CU chipset. There are two drivers for it for non-Windows systems. You can get the official Realtek driver (Linux and OSX), or search for "compat-wireless" driver (Linux only, but better).

Did not work with AV receiver wireless.

Dirk Calloway "Junior", Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: This unit did not work with my Onkyo NR 616 receiver. Some discussion boards thought it might. I tried it. It did not. I updated all the firmware and did the setup a zillion times a zillion different ways. I'm fairly tech savy...I could not get it working. That said I was able to get it working on my computer fairly easy. It did not work on my mac but I was able to boot into windows 7 and it worked fine.

  • Pros: One of the cheaper ones out there
  • Cons: reception is not too well in my house

Not great reception but better speed

AK, Amazon
5 February 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this wireless adapter to transfer data from my laptop to main server and back at a speed faster than "G" speed. My laptop has (at least I thought) a weak antenna and is only capable of wireless-G speed. This adapter should provide me with higher "N" transfer speed and better reception. I installed the drivers on a Windows 7 32bit machine without issue.

  • Excerpt: Нормальный такой wi-fi свисток. Частых обрывов замечено не было, скорость относительно нормальная, но в купе с роутером той же фирмы ожидал большего, по крайней мере в скорости. А так ничего за эти деньги.
  • Pros: Выносной адаптер, цена+скорость, обрывов практически не замечено.
  • Cons: Да нету вроде. Скорости бы побольше, но многое от роутера зависит.

Buen remedio.

  • Summary: Compre hace un par de años este TP-LINK TL-WN821N porque me hacia falta un receptor Wi-Fi para el ordenador de sobremesa y asi quitarme el engorro de andar llevando cables desde el router de entrada hasta la estancia que utilizo habitualmente como despacho o lugar de trabajo. Su instalación es muy sencilla porque es Plug and Play, esto es, que lo conectas y se instala solo.
  • Pros: Te ahorras de cables por todos lados .
  • Cons: La señal podria ser mejor .
