Solid adapter that should last you for many years!

OrionsMusicdotcom, Amazon
24 October 2013
  • Summary: I've been using this adapter for at least 2 years, maybe 3, and it's given me ZERO problems. It gets a little hot but it's never affected the connection. Can't recommend this model enough!

Works on my Patriot Box Office

A. Chianese, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: Works as described - I'm averaging 25+mbps in my condo for solid streaming. It seems any really large videos I stream, such as over 10gb, end up choppy however, so be wary of that. It serves its purpose for a cheap wireless dongle however and was a no brainer to get up and running with.

Seamless in Linux

KVitullo, Amazon
7 August 2013
  • Summary: I just plugged it in and it went. I measured it against my laptop's built-in wifi using speakeasy's speed test. First time was 4Mbps slower. Second time was 1.5Mbps faster. For $15 and a zero-pain installation I'll take that. If it breaks I'll revise my review, but to me this thing is a life saver.

Dell laptop running Ubuntu

  • Summary: This USB wifi adapter is strong and works well in my older Dell laptop running Ubuntu. This is much stronger/better than the smaller USB adapter that I was using from Edimax. Give this one a try!

Better than expected for connecting old desktop to smartphone

Rick T, Amazon
26 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to connect an older Windows 7 desktop lacking a wifi radio to my phone's hot spot and it works much better than I expected. I live in a rural area and cellular is the only broadband option (other than satellite). For the ten bucks I paid I am very pleased.
