Summary: The TEW-805UB is working well for me. I set it up on my Windows 7 desktop. The installation was a little more complicated than I expected. I thought this product would just be plug and play, but I had to install a program to get up and running.
Summary: I'm seeing speed increases as high as 6x compared to whatever is in a new Dell laptop computer running Windows 8. But if either if these speeds are faster than whatever the speed the Internet providers provides, they make no difference.
Summary: I got this for my husband's desktop computer because he chose to build it without a wireless card. It sticks out of the computer quite a bit but since it's a desktop under a desk that doesn't cause any concerns.
Summary: The TRENDnet Dual Band USB Adapter was designed to connect to a desktop or laptop, and with a simple process connect your router to a WiFi network to enable faster file transfers, such as streaming videos or games.
Summary: I loaded the CD into my laptop and followed all 8 of the instructions and nothing. No WiFi connection so I'll just go back to my old modem and router, they work. Thought maybe this would be easier than that but it isn't and I really didn't like how far out away from the laptop this stuck out.

That was easy to fix by going to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections (win7) and right clicking 'properties' and unchecking the box...
Summary: I was eager to see how this would work on an HP e9280t desktop from the last decade, that continues to run quite well except that the Wi-Fi connectivity is sometimes buggy. For example, sometimes, too often, the Wi-Fi miniport adapter stops working, especially after the PC wakes up from sleep or...
