  • Summary: I have been trying to pick up the signal from router in the house next door(the parsonage, want to get internet at church) and this is the only adapter that I tried that was able too!! Even get full signal strength!! The other ones I tried that didn't work cost twice as much. I may buy another one as a spare since it is so cheep.

Great Product!

Joseph K., Newegg
4 July 2014
  • Summary: My router is in the basement of the house and my room is on the 2nd floor. Before I would only get 1 bar so I had to use an extender. Extender wasn't very reliable so I got this product. I have full bar now and the range on this thing is crazy!. Only used it for couple of days but the connection is stable and was very easy to set it up.
  • Pros: Good price, great range, good product.
  • Cons: none

2nd Revised Review

William W., Newegg

  • Summary: If the replacement unit continues to work reliably, I may start recommending these TP-Link USB adapters to my desktop and laptop users, versus permanently installed PCI or PCIe WIFI cards. These would also be handy way to repair a laptop with a failed internal WIFI adapter.
  • Pros: The first test unit I received died after just a few days of use. After several emails TP-Link asked me to return my defective unit and then they shipped out a new replacement. The connect speeds are still not very impressive typically around 147K, but the new unit has been reliable so far.
  • Cons: I was never able to obtain a full 300 Mbps WIFI-N connection as advertised. The unit seemed to top out at around 150 Mbps.

Leaves something to be desired

Mark K., Newegg

  • Summary: I'm not overly impressed, but if you're having issues getting a signal this can allow you to connect.
  • Pros: It does pick up more signals. Extended range was quite impressive.
  • Cons: Speeds while using this are seriously slower than the built in wireless card. This only does the 2.4Ghz band. The antennas stick below the base so it does not sit even.

works good

  • Summary: I'm happy with this adapter. It doesn't disconnect very often and seems very predictable. I've always been happy with TP-link because they always seem to work for me. I can't complain about the performance for the cost and versatility of the device. Downloaded drivers from the website just didn't work so keep track of that disc!
  • Pros: Fairly easy to setup, Supports WPS for a very simple install.
  • Cons: Disconnects itself once in a while on 2 different computers (dual cores with windows 7) but runs great on my newer quad core (windows 7). Won't stay full screen on Hulu most of the time and sometimes it wont automatically connect and it loses signal completely. The driver is required from the included mini CD as Windows 7 doesn't seem to work without it and this could be a problem being since the disc is one of the mini's that not all drives can use. I would like to j...

Upgrade from internal adapter

Angela S., Newegg
4 April 2014
  • Summary: I have a computer in the basement we use to stream movies but due to location it can barely pick up our wireless signal. I was using a power-over-ethernet adapter for the problem, but this transfers files over twice as fast and just as reliable.
  • Pros: Increased signal strength over internal laptop adapter. Discovers more (further away) Wifi SSIDs than laptop's internal wireless.
  • Cons: Not plug-and-play on Windows 7 or 8. Requires driver CD.

Didn’t live up to claims

Katie H., Newegg
2 January 2014
  • Pros: The device had a very strong signal strength (5 out of 5 bars) and picked up many of the networks on my street.
  • Cons: It was painfully slow. Only 7.0 Mbps, that was down from the 58.0 I was getting before. I wanted greater signal strength and got it but lost speed.

Disappointing

Ralph L., Newegg
18 October 2013
  • Summary: I am using comcast cable (not really that good), but at times I have downloaded with my laptop's internal wireless over 8MB (megabytes) per second. For some reason I am down to 50-60 KBs. This new adapter has brought me down to 27KBs. I had to wait forever just to get to this page to complain.
  • Pros: Easy set up.
  • Cons: So slow I will have to replace.
