Purchaed to use on a trip to a rural area in Alabama
6 February 2014
Summary: The place we were staying is way out in the "boonies" so we were sure we would need a booster to get a consistent and clear signal on a netbook and this one worked very well. No more dropped connections in the middle of a task! I highly recommend this product.
Summary: This product has never worked sufficiently. These are several Wi-Fi networks that pass through my home and it gave me up to two bars on a limited number of those available. I even tried this adapter with a larger antenna, to no avail. I am fully and completely disappointed with the product.
Summary: I've tried a couple of other brands and this one is working best for me. My problem has been too little gain from my basement located PC ant the router on second floor. This one did the trick with included 5 db antenna.
Summary: I've used several wifi usb dongles in last 8 months...some of them were Airlink,and others, but none of them can compete with this thing! It' really awesome. I'm getting full bars consrantly, no signal drop, and I'm picking up a dozen of other wifi networks,that i havent seen before.
Summary: Bought this for my wife's Dell wireless desktop, the connection worked with her computer it just wasn't receiving a strong signal 2 rooms away. I thought this would boost the signal because her computer tower was inside a roll-top desk lower cabinet.
Summary: I read the other reviews and what I experienced was when I went to install the drivers and software I could not find the AWUS048NH drivers on the disc. There were other models but not this one.... Had to go to their web site [...
Easy installation, 5-bar reception for N150 Dlink network
9 October 2011
Summary: Bought this for my wife to use on our home wireless network. Had been using a Dlink N150 USB transceiver with 2 bar reception at best (Dlink N150 router). Connected this unit on a 15-foot USB extension cable and placed close to the ceiling, located about 35 feet from router.
