  • Summary: Works well. I had an older laptop that had connection problems. This took care of them. And its nice to sit in my car in the shade while out and still be able to connect to an open Wi-Fi. Rather than be crowded in some place.

Not even good as a door stop, but when it works, it works good, but not for long.

Kevin Farley, Amazon
