I was hoping for more

Mat, Amazon

  • Summary: I am sure it works for others.... As for me....I was getting 2 bars from my laptop before RangeBooster.... and... I am getting 2 bars on my laptop after RangeBooster. The power of a concrete block wall to stop signals is not to be underestimated. Oh well, the price was worth the experiment.

Junk

Christopher Cole, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: I have had this for about one week and I have gotten this to work for about two days. It is NOT compatible with Windows 8, but does not say what it is compatible with anywhere. This is old tech but is being sold brand new. They don't manufacture this anymore. It only works with windows xp!

Install the latest driver and then use XP's Zero Wireless Utility

R. Stevens, Amazon
14 January 2009
  • Summary: I have the D-Link DIR-655 router (I upgraded from a Netgear FWG114P), and one by one have been upgrading my wireless adapters (almost all Netgear) to D-Link adapters. While the Netgear WG111v2 worked fine and supported WPA2, it's limited to 54G speeds (forget the WG111v1 and WG511--no WPA there).

Good but not great.

I. Hodge, Amazon
9 January 2009
  • Summary: In order to use this product with Windows Vista Home Premium (64 bit), I had to search the net for drivers. I finally found the right driver which was actually the one for a Netgear WN111 USB wireless adapter. When installed, the D-Link adapter worked.

  • Summary: I have setup and used this usb adapter on two machines in my house with nominal setup time. I have had issues with it connecting to my d-link n-gateway, having to input my gateway password serveral times. Once connected, the speed is amazing if you are used to using G.
