Not happy with the product or the vendor on this one

Summary: Product worked great for a month. At some point it would still connect, show 100% signal and link quality but would never get more than about 14kb/s speed. I tried on 2 different systems with the same result. I plugged in a different wireless adapter and speed was fine. Clearly a problem with this adapter. I put in a request to return. TEKENVY refused to accept the return since their return policy is 30 days, and my claim was 34 days after delivery.
Summary: If you have a non wireless computer, this will make it wireless. If you want/need a stronger wireless signal for your laptop or other similar device this is the product for you. I have used it to make my home computer wireless and have also used it to increase the wireless strength on my laptop. Great product.
Summary: I want to emphasize that this adapter has the unusual feature that you can invert its function and have it behave as an access point. Nowhere in Amazon's description or even on the outside of the box is this stated. Nevertheless, when you read the manual, you discover that, with the provided utility program, you can configure it work as an access point.
Summary: Great little unit. Play with your router settings when you setup. Out of the box I was getting about 20 mBit down. Adjusted some settings and now it's pulling 60. Not too bad for a $20 device.
Summary: Improves a weak wifi signal many times stronger. I had 1bar of sigmal,with this divice i received full strength and went from locating 2 wifi routers to receiving 20. One problem is the divice uses two usb jacks and i am using a macbook air,it only has one usb port on either side of laptop,cable lenght on eng wifi booster isnt long enough to reach both sides so i used ext cable. Another issue is with apple only.
Summary: We bought one since we knew someone who had one and he could pull in a better signal then we could. We are traveling in our RV and get free Wi Fi at many RV parks and Campgrounds but sometimes the signal can be weak, this works great to pull in a stronger signal! When husband is on his computer and I am on mine, the one using the EnGenius gets a stonger signal. It won't create signal where there is none. Looking for a stronger signal, this is the product.
