Comparison of three mini or nano wireless N adapters
3 September 2014
Summary: I searched the Amazon for mini and nano wireless N adatpers and narrowed them down to three Wireless N adapters that I couldn't decide which one to get. I finally got to compare them and would like to provide my suggestions as follows: The three wireless N adapters in my comparisons are (in price...
Summary: I got this little gem to work with the Raspberry PI 2.0, 512MB, and it works like a champ. Apparently it doesn't draw too much power, and works successfully with the Atrix Lapdock set up as well. Clearly, this is a VERY tiny adapter. Just plugged it in, and forgot about it... it works.
Summary: I purchased this in July 2012 to replace an internal broken wifi on a laptop. It worked okay until January of 2013 when it was so slow you couldn't watch a YouTube video without it repeatedly pausing.
Summary: This wireless adapter is not for the average computer user. The installation instructions and the CD that come in the package do not contain a functional driver for the device. Fortunately, another review on Amazon pointed this out.
Summary: I bought this dongle (AirLink 101 AWLL5088) to use with a PC running Linux (Fedora 17). The device *is* Linux compatible, but it doesn't have any Linux drivers on the CD-ROM that it ships with. When I first plugged it in, Linux recognized it as a USB device, but not as a Wifi adapter.
Summary: I bought this last year and couldn't be happier. It works perfectly with Windows 7, and once I used ndiswrapper, it worked perfectly with Ubuntu linux as well. I would definitely recommend this adapter.
Summary: I recently inherited a 2004 Mac G5 in great condition but it didn't have an airport extreme card in it so my only option was to either shell out $45 for a wireless card for A machine worth no more than 200-300 dollars or try to find a compatible USB wireless adapter.
Summary: In Windows 7, I get 5 bars (Excellent) signal strength, but speed for this dongle is 14Mbit/s Max 21Mbits/s. Downloading/Uploading was unbearably slow. Streaming videos constantly skipped. My Apple TV sitting next to the computer is much faster. I'm returning this.
