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.
Summary: Up and running quickly under Windows 7 32bit using G-mode with WPA2PSK to a Engenius 5610 G-mode access point. I purchased this adapter to replace a 200mw Senao B card. I tried another usb adapter from Encore, but it just didn't go the distance. The EnGenius gives me a 98% signal strength, when the other Encore card couldn't even connect. Positives 1) Absolutely fantastic for long distance connections.
Summary: If you have a weak internet wireless signal this USB adapter will improve the signal strength and speed. I bought one to see and it worked so good I purchased a second one for my other computer. It also acts as a wireless land unit.
Summary: This thing works good, dam good. I bought a similar product from amped wireless, it was week and slow. had to return the amped wireless one which cost about 45 dollars. This one cost about18 dollars and it works perfectly. Where there was a weak or no signal I now have a strong signal.
