Summary: It is tough to make a product which works for everyone in every situation. I have Windows 8.1 running on my laptop computer, and wanted the ability to connect to either 2.5 or 5 ghz bands. This unit has filled that need, and had the extra bonus in my opinion of having a usb port extender cable included with it, which allows great flexibility in positioning the unit for best reception.
this was a great purchase in terms of avoiding the lower wireless channels ...

Summary: With all the Wireless access points in a neighborhood, this was a great purchase in terms of avoiding the lower wireless channels of 1-11. Throughput was consistently great and no collision with other homes in the neighborhood. After seeing how quick the wireless is now, wish i had spent the money months ago.
Summary: I had wWIFI in house for cable with Netgear router and now needed internet for computer across room. Did not want long internet cable across room so bought this adapter and plugged into my USB hub. It worked well. Have to do steps in sequence and know where buttons on each device to push. Disc with adapter shows you what and how so that this 76 yr old female could follow.
Summary: I got this item for my desktop which is in the other room from my router. I was expecting a drop off of 5-10 mbps...however there was no drop off at all. 1 week later I moved my router about 5ft further and still no drop off. Im very impressed....
