good when it works

Anonymous, Newegg
24 November 2013
  • Pros: good when it worked. then it started to randomly disconnect.. I think it overheats as I use it for desktop pc that is connected to my TV for streaming overseas TV stations.
  • Cons: a little big but if you use it on desktop it wouldn't matter

UPDATE

Valery H., Newegg
13 September 2012
  • Pros: This is an update to my first review. I uninstalled EnGenius driver and installed RALINK one (for Windows.) 7 feet away from the router I now get full 150mbps, so this device is worth 4 eggs.
  • Cons: Very short range, but for such a miniature device that's expected. It didn't look that small on a picture though. Gets HOT. Not sure how long it will last.

OK

Valery H., Newegg
13 September 2012
  • Summary: In Linux with ralink firmware, this thing connects at 90-120mbps. Not 150, but still a lot better than with native driver, hence 3 eggs; would be 0 otherwise.
  • Pros: Price, size, ralink chipset.
  • Cons: Driver is bad. I downloaded it (and the utility) from their website. It only connects at G speed (54mbps). Router is configured with wpa2+aes. If I disable b+g on my router, it won't connect at all. My laptop is 7 feet away from the router. My built-in card with ancient Broadcom chipset connects ...

[Update]

Mohammad S., Newegg
26 August 2012
  • Summary: [Update] Since I can't edit reviews please discard the review below. I gave this a 5 star rating to offset the one I gave earlier out of frustration. The item works fairly well as long as you are within range of 0-30 ft.
  • Pros: Compact. Works decently within range.
  • Cons: Short range.

Does not work well at all

Mohammad S., Newegg
12 August 2012
  • Summary: It maybe just for my setup that it is giving so much trouble, but I would not recommend this product.
  • Pros: Compact
  • Cons: Used it for a desktop, and the connection is terrible. My setup is in the furthest room from the router, and I am able to pick up not even a 1/10 of the connection speed my laptops wireless card can in the same room. Tried messing with the settings on the software that came with it with little to...

Up and running in 10 minutes

George P., Newegg
13 July 2012
  • Summary: Using it on a desktop, so it will remain plugged in. Installed only the drivers when asked, not the EnGenius management software. XP Pro SP3 system. Replaced a PCI network card that was failing.
  • Pros: Neat, small, signal strength very good and consistent. Low Price.
  • Cons: No way to store cap, so it will get lost (not a biggie, not enough to lose a star.

Very flaky

Anonymous, Newegg
26 March 2012
  • Summary: P.S. - In the time I typed this review and hit submit I lost my connection and had to reconnect!
  • Pros: Small I guess?
  • Cons: Extremely flaky. I have this installed on a PowerMac OS X 10.6.2 (Snow Leopard) and it NEVER stays connected. Anytime you want to access the web you literally have to reopen the EnGenius Wireless Utility and double click the profile to reconnect or click the connect button on the site survey page...
