  • Summary: I have been using it but when I installed the driver from the C/D it crashed the computer,,, TWICE!!! I emailed Edimax they had me do a install from their web site and that crashed my computer!!! Yes it does work BUT it should NOT have crashed the computer!!! My computer has Vista... Sorry,,, I would not recommend Edimax...

Great Product

Shawn H., Newegg
20 March 2015
  • Summary: It was $9, so I mean I shouldn't be complaining, however I just want people to know what they're getting into. Great little Nano Wireless Adapter.
  • Pros: Nano USB! Plug it into the back of my PC and never have to worry about it getting caught on cables, or anything of the sort. This USB is fantastic in that it's compact, versatile, and can pretty much be take anywhere in my pocket,
  • Cons: An egg knocked off for performance. The speeds at which it downloads and the latency are about what I expected for a $9 wireless adapter. Normal Wifi latency around 20-40ms, this is about 100ms. Wifi router is in the next room over, so it's close. Normal download speeds around 7-10MBps, with this I'm getting around 3-4MBps. Still fast, but I'm just letting people know!

  • Summary: For as small as this dongle is, it's amazing how it surpasses the range and functionality of any built in Wi-Fi chip that is integrated in my laptops and desktops.

Cheap and very functional

Erol G., Newegg
14 March 2015
  • Summary: I wish the problems of my life were this small as well!
  • Pros: Works like a piece of elaborately evolved nature once you get the right driver. Stable, reliable, fast Internet connection even through a wall from a neighboring apartment.
  • Cons: The only gripe is that the default driver on the packaged CD is really embarrassing, and it should be upgraded ASAP! If it is too costly to put an updated driver with this product, just insert a paper slip informing customers to download it yourself; that's better than sparing them the agony of wobbly timeouts and lengthy troubleshooting. After downloading an updated driver from Edimax site, this now works flawlessly and so I am placated.
