Summary: I live in a house, where the router is located upstairs, and there are many walls in between. I have a laptop, and the signal reception is a total disaster. I got lag when i played games, and some times open up google could take me 1 min. Only 2 bars of signal on the right downside of windows task bar. Now, I HAVE 5 BARS! and no more lag in game! if you are having the same trouble with laptop! this is the best deal i can think of!
Summary: I bought two of these at the same time. One for an XP machine, the other for a Win7 machine. The first one would not connect to either machine for more than a couple of seconds, then was basically "not visible". I tried the second one and it did not show up at all in Device Manager. After some head-scratching, I tried the USB cable in the second box and had no issues connecting either adapter. Setup went really quickly as a matter of fact.
Pros: Picked up signal without any issues. Setup was easy* see caveat below.
Summary: Bought this to connect an XP machine to a router in the basement and it works great. Connects at 802.11n speeds to a Telus wireless router, the one you get with Optik package. I especially like the removable antenna which means you can connect up higher power antennas from companies like Superpass, etc.
Pros: Setup is easy and worked right out of the box
Cons: Base is kinda light which makes it a bit top heavy
Summary: my father bought this on july 24th 2011 , picks up alot of wifi connections from my house my built in wifi card in laptop only picked up 4 connections and this device picked up 14 connections all around great device gonna try it next week with a 15dbi antenna instead of the 5dbi antenna that came with it.
Summary: After years of trying various routers and range extenders to get a good signal in my garage office, I can finally claim success! Who would have thought a gadget [at this price] worked better than any of the high priced gizmos on the market. Just make sure to run it through TP-Links utility. It won't run through Window's wireless utility.
Summary: I bought this for my wife's Lenovo notebook after its internal WiFi card died. One of the problems with the original card was that it would lock the system whenever we used the microwave oven near it. This new TP Link unit does pause while the microwave is running, but reconnects immediately after it finishes. Moreover, it sees way more wireless networks than we ever new were running in our neighbourhood - definitely much more powerful than the old on-board card.
Summary: I read a lot before buying this product and used several different products. I used that to get better signals when I am using my laptop. It is a high-gain adapter that's why it has very good performance when it is compared with the other products.
Summary: I ended up with the TL-WN7200ND because I was searching for a wireless adaptor compatible with an embedded Linux system. Unfortunately the system only supported wireless devices with the RT3070 chipset. I did a quick search on the Internet and the TL-WN727N and TL-WN7200ND both showed up as using similar chipsets. Unfortunately the TL-WN727N was sold out so I went with the more expensive TL-WN7200ND.
