Turn Your PC into a Wireless PC

Maureen A Connolly, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought and used this device to connect an older PC wirelessly to a wireless router rather than using Ethernet. The PC did not have a wireless capability, but the TRENDnet Wireless Adapter provided the PC with wireless capability when it was inserted in one of the USB ports.

Cheap, durable, and works well

Grant S. Steffens, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm an IT Admin, and a usb adapter is a great thing to have a spare of incase a computer's internal wifi or Ethernet card fails. It is also very useful when formatting a computer as you may have to go online to get the driver for its internal wifi/Ethernet card. Had one break after daily usage for 1.5 years, have others that have been in place for more than 2 years without issue.

Disappointed - Wrong product for my needs

Lad A. Jelen "Lad138", Amazon
24 June 2013
  • Summary: This is probably good if your wireless USB adapter broke and you don't need an N-rated adapter, but I thought I was buying an N-rated adapter and this wasn't worth the cost to return it.

Works for a power mac

Mary Bausch, Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: The manufacturer states on their website that this wireless adapter works with mac osx 10.4 and 10.5. I wasn't sure if it included both PowerPC macs and intel based macs. Happily it did install on my PowerPC emac; though it did require a somewhat testy encounter with a CD. As a hypercard lover(a classic app that won't work on intel macs), I'm firmly anchored in the past. It was nice to find an inexpensive upgrade that allows me to move the computer to different rooms.

Great hardware, bad software

Aaron Fox, Amazon
8 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought this because I needed to give an older desktop computer WiFi capability, but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. For the most part, as a piece of hardware, it does really well and keeps its connection. However, it's not perfect out of the box. Two suggestions that result in great operation for me: 1.

Small, Easy, Convenient

N. Clarkson, Amazon
15 December 2010
  • Summary: This wireless USB adapter was exactly what I was looking for! It comes with a short cord that doesn't block the other USB port on the front of our desktop computer. It hangs down from the port, but still allows us to close the cabinet door (not a great deal of space there). It works quickly, so much so that our computer actually has to catch up at times... Great product for the price. Just plug it in and it installs itself!

Cheap, it works, but not very sensitive

Denali, Amazon
12 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought this about a month ago because the built-in Wi-Fi adapter in my laptop is intermittently failing. The TRENDnet installed on my Windows 7 32-bit machine without any need for the CD that came with it. It works every time. That said, it is much less sensitive than the adapter inside my laptop (when that one works).

Works as promised

  • Summary: Works just as promised. Reception would be better on a more powerful unit, but this unit fits the bill. A very good buy.
