Nice Format, Horrible Device, Slow

Bucky Badger "BJ", Amazon

  • Summary: Very nice footprint device. However, that is where the pro's begin. How in the world they can call this a 300 Mbps device is astounding. I ran Oookla's internet speed test several times and the fastest I could get was 25 Mbps! In ad-hoc/infrastructure mode the most it reached was around 58 Mbps. The Linksys USB device in my other computer gets over 100 Mbps using Ookla and operates at well beyond 215 Mbps in ad-hoc/infrastructure mode.

  • Summary: I have a Netgear-N WAP. I could get the D-Link Wirelss N Nano to connect to my WAP in the B/G mode but not in N mode. I never could get it to work regardless of the driver, configuration or location. It works fine in the B/G mode.

Disappointing.

  • Summary: Didn't work well at all - lost signal constantly, when it did connect signal strength and speeds varied widely and continuously. By comparison, my laptop sitting right beside the computer with this device connected easily and remained stable all throughout. I have returned the product.

No use for Linux users

Simon, Woolworths

  • Summary: I have 2 laptops and a desktop computer all running variations of Linux. I bought this dongle for the desktop, however, it didn't work. I tried it on both laptops, nothing, no blue light, nothing. I Googled and Googled but sadly the current kernals do not support the Realtek chip within this dongle, this dongle is Rev B, Rev A is known to work with Linux. Had I known this I wouldn't have bought it.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to use, Simple Straight Forward, Quick setup,

  • Excerpt: Очень ужасная. Сколько мучился. 40 минут проходит разъединение и руками охладить ( я так делаю ) И потом опять вставлять туда. И да поменяйте прошивку и проблема решится!
  • Pros: -
  • Cons: 1. Греется и пропадает сеть. ( самое главное ) 2. Ну + остальное все норм

  • Excerpt: Для постоянного использования не подходит, как только начинает идти трафик, хоть торрент хоть HD видео в потоке, минут за 10 раскаляется и перестает ловить сеть. Подключение восстанавливается физическим отключением/включением девайса.
  • Pros: Маленький
  • Cons: Перегревается, отваливается от сети

  • Summary: Ändrat min åsikt från: "Fungerar superbra. Sitter ca 8 meter från routern med två träväggar emellan. Inget problem. 1ms från router." Till: Fungerar som den var tänkt men rekkomenderarar inte denna för att den inte stödjer 5GHz. Därför får du inte de hastigheter 300MBit hastigheter som N standarden kan få. Ej rekkomenderad.
