GNU/Linux Application: Works well after Ubuntu 10.10
13 March 2014
Summary: On GNU/Linux, specifically Lubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr beta, 126.96.36.199-generic kernel, with a TP-LINK TL-WN7200ND Wireless N150 using driver rt2800usb from the Lubuntu install: this unit worked out of the box on first boot, no intervention required. Found my wireless lan immediately. I quickly abandoned a different wifi usb stick that required driver hacking, though it worked with Windows XP.
Summary: I just wanted to share how pleased I am with this purchase. I had been using a D-Link usb adapter on my desktop for over a year now, never managing to get more than 2 or 3 bars of signal quality at >24-36 Mbps. Being on the near opposite side of the house from the Router, I've never been happy with my internet speed.
Summary: I life saver in an area with weak reception. I had to use the supplied disk to the load the drivers on my Win8 laptop. Took 30 seconds and I went from 2 hotspots at 2 bars to 15 wifi signals and 5 bars on the 2 original spots.
