3 years old, still going strong

Adrian W., Newegg
7 days ago
  • Pros: I bought this in November 2012. 3 years later, and it's still working fine. Currently using it to get wifi signal in my airstream, from 200 ft. away! For the last 3 months has been outside, on porch (covered by awning), in mostly humid weather.
  • Cons: After 3 years, the USB connection isn't as tight as I'd like it to be. Have adapter at funny, crooked angle -- so I'm using a rubber band to secure it in the cradle.

Works

Yuriy T., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: It's worth the money for sure.I would suggest Realtek drivers instead of Rosewill.Realtek driver is newer and works with Windows 7/8/8.1 If you are trying to get better signal for home use-this adapter is your best bet.If you trying to keep solid redundant connection-look for something else.
  • Pros: It's an update for me,and it holds solid 54 Mbs on my old ATT dsl modem/roouter which is on the other side of the house,behind 3 walls.
  • Cons: Doesn't drop the connection but if you watch it for a while you will find out that it's dropping packets,not very often but it does.Not good for on-line games.

Good Stuff

Igor Zaychik, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought RNX as a WiFi booster. In a short while I found that it can be used as wireless access point. Now connect from my tablet to the network created by RNX. On Pros: device is easy to install and signal is strong, software has intuitive interface and WEP encoding. It is 802.11 N, USB powered, compact and cheap. On Cons: Documentation is very limited, unless you know wireless network basics is useless. Software on original disc does not have uninstall option.

Works with Raspberry Pi

Brian F., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I specifically bought this adapter because it was listed as working with the Raspberry Pi and because it's N300. Turns out N300 is the downlink speed, the uplink is N150. I was bummed when I realized this, but rereading the newegg description they do mention this, so the fault is my own for not reading closely. That said, I still would have purchased this adapter - I guess I just wish it were N300 both ways.
  • Pros: Works with Raspberry Pi distros out of the box, no need to download drivers or firmware. Also works on the Raspberry Pi B+ without the need for a powered hub.
  • Cons: My only complaint about this adapter is is adapter housing. The housing is flat and wide. However, the width is the problem. Many computers (Raspberry Pi included) have USB ports close together. The adapter is too wide, it blocks the neighboring port. If it were designed to be long and narrow it wouldn't block neighboring ports. Technically I can use the included USB extension (which is nice), so this is a minor gripe.

Extended range and improved signal quality.

Jonathan Miller, Amazon
22 August 2014
  • Summary: Extended range, improved signal quality and strength. Just what I needed. I am behind a door and down a long hallway from the router, before using this device my signal quaality was garbage. I would get dropped from the network repeatedly. Now I have a 100% signal quality and I rarely get dropped at all now. Beein using for 1 week and have had no issues. Only thing that might come up is the base seems to heat up a bit, but haven't had any problems with it so far.

  • Pros: Great price. Antenna is of good quality with strong signal.
  • Cons: The unit would overheated when used without the cradle and stop working. Recommend using cradle at all times. Plastic housing around USB connector was a little loose.
