Summary: The WiFi card went out in my 6 year old Dell Laptop I bought this USB WiFi Adapter, it fits very close to the computer ,, I print with my WiFi printer and download as fast as I ever did with the built in WiFi. Note: Had this usb wifi Adapter in service for 8 days , it works great so far ! I'm Very Satisfied !!
Summary: The reviews are correct; this wireless adapter is exactly what I needed. I was on the hunt for one because my internal wireless adapter wasn't working and I was about to spend the money on replacing that one when I came across this gem online. I put in the CD, set it up and was up and running in less than five minutes and a month later, I haven't had any issues since.
Summary: So far so good. Bought two of these to replace to older slower linksys units. not only are these things so much smaller, they barely come out of the usb port, they increased my signal by TWO bars. Now I've only been using them for 10 days but they seem to work great and I've had no problems. I needed to use the enclosed mini cd to load the software. I have not tried to stream or do any heavy duty work with these.
Summary: If you're looking to pick up a signal from far away you shouldn't be surprised that this may not cut it. However, that's not to say that it won't so please don't take that as a "no don't buy it". High gain antennas would likely be a better solution for you if you're behind a few walls or far away.
Pros: I was surprised to find that I hadn't already written a review. These are excellent short range wi-fi adapters. These fit my need for probably 90% of wi-fi connecections on desktops and laptops that need a new wifi adapter. Much easier than opening up some laptops that don't have easy access to the pci adapter and cheaper than a new wi-fi pci card when these are on sale.
Cons: Easy to loose and hard to pull out if you plan on removing it at all, but that's why it's called "nano".
