Wireless N adapter

  • Summary: I use this little wireless N adapter whenever I am setting up or fixing a computer and don't have access to an Ethernet connection. Just plug the adapter into a USB2 or USB3 port (no extra speed advantage when using USB3), install the driver and it is good to go.

  • 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.

It's good, but there are a couple little things...

  • Summary: Okay, so I bought this to use with my desktop. I needed something that was NOT extremely expensive, and that would work with my compute. So after looking at multiple different Wi-Fi adapters, lots of researching and a lengthy conversation with my Dad, I picked this one.

  • Summary: It was very easy to set up on windows 7, up and running within 5 mins. Speed steady at 130 mbps, much faster than the laptop built-in adaptor, and even faster than most other usb adaptors tested.
  • Pros: easy to set up, fast speed
  • Cons: too big to really use it for laptop

  • Pros: Transmission power up to 22db R2T2 for optimum data transfer up to 300Mbps both ways.
  • Cons: Larger than many other USB Wifi adapter.

  • Summary: I bought this adapter specifically for my hdx1000 set top box hoping i would no longer require a network cable. boy was i wrong. the HD streaming is just as bad as any wireless. other than that it's a great product. installation was very easy if you know a bit about networking.
  • Pros: Easy installation, Works great, win7 compatible, HDX1000 compatible
  • Cons: bulky, not good for streaming HD video
