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

  • 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.

  • Summary: We have been using this for the past year or so, for my sister s computer and I have to say the wi fi is awfully slow on it.. The distance is about 10m away, but other laptops have better reception in her room than her desktop.
  • 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.

  • Summary: Works well in Windows but you have to dig to make works in Ubuntu. Works out of the box in Openelec.

  • 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 .

  • Summary: J'ai reçu cette clé USB hier, je l'ai installé sans souci majeur. Je me rend compte que le débit est de 1Mbps! Je ne sais pas si c'est dû au canal ou a autre chose. Je fouille pour mieux comprendre... Mais ça n'a pas l'air facile vu que la doc n'est pas très détaillé. Ils mettent juste que Max 300Mbps!! Et le normal c'est combien!!???
