I am beside myself with pleasant surprise, after I have tried a myriad of USB power antennas and wirelss and AC-mediated range extenders of all makes and models which I could never get either configured or to effect any improvement once installed and configured. I ordered this unit as the "last straw" approach merely as a desperate supplement to another Amazon order to bring the total to "free shipping" qualification! I shall describe the setup and function in considerable detail because wireless can be tricky, and I don't want you to get on the wrong track and become discouraged with a fine product.

TECHNICAL:

The device attaches to a USB port and Windows 7 will find a driver for it immediately. The kit comes with a mini CD which your optical drive may or may not accommodate. If not, you can burn the files onto a regular CD for loading the specific drivers and installation utility. However, a far better option is to go directly to Ralink's website and download the latest driver, since it is about 9 months more proximate to the current date than the one included on at least my miniCD. I had done the aforementioned transfer from the 3" disc, but when I started to launch it, I realized that it was outdated, and made the installation from the downloaded file which you can of course save to your hard drive for later use. The address for the download is included on the instruction sheet. It is the first download in the list under USB 2870 Win 7 32/64. If you didn't know that, you wouldn't know which file to pick.

The installation is very quick, but afterwards, if you have an encrypted wireless network(which I hope you all have), you will have to set up the parameters so that the antenna can join your security- protected wireless network.

After going through 3 other adapters for almost twice the price I gave this lower priced adapter a shot... IT OUT PERFORMS THE REST hands down.. Save your money and purchase this product.. I am so happy.. We are on the road and have to use hotel motel internet 300+ days a year and if you are in our position you know they offer high speed internet at most but you can never hook up because of all the interference due to walls, location to routers,etc. This adapter blows through all of this and we always hook up at max speed/quality offered... WOW what a difference...

I agree with the others completely that this is a fantastic adapter. I was having trouble with my laptop (intel 1000 b/g/n adaper) disconnecting with my Buffalo WHR-HP-G300N router. When I did connect, the connection speeds would vary from 65mbps to 130mbps. Even when my wireless card was working properly, the signal would bounce from 265mpbs back down to 130 or less after an hour.

I thought I would give this little guy a shot. WOW! What a difference it makes. Solid 300mbps. I also see neighborhood routers that I used to see at 1 bar and are now up to four bars. In fact, I see routers I didn't know existed. As a test, I tried connecting to my neighbor's router. He has the exact same router that I do. For whatever reason, my built-in Intel Wi-fi card would not disconnect from his router, however I would only see one bar and my connection speed was 1-5mbps. Using this adaper (made by Realtek), I now see four bars and connect at the full 300mbps. Additionally, the connection speeds are rock solid.

Regarding setup with Windows 7 (I am using x64 version), there is no need for the CD (contains drivers and a program called Ralink for configuring the card) that comes with it. First, disable your internal network card within device manager. Second, connect this device, Windows 7 will recognize it, and then use the built-in Windows connectivity tools.

Bottom line: If I could give this thing 6 stars I would. The only thing I might change is to make the USB cable a little longer. It is of sufficient length to set comfortably on the table next to my couch, but it would be nice to attach the adapter to the wall (use velcro?) and then just tether my laptop to the USB cable. This is personal preference though.

Size: Wi-Fi Range Extender
Today I received my Etekcity Wireless-N Wifi Repeater. Here's my thoughts on the product.

BOX AND CONTENTS - Upon opening the box, I found some fairly decent instructions along with an ethernet cable and the repeater device itself.

DOCUMENTATION - On a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being best, for the documentation I'd say it rates an 8. I've definitely seen better but I've also seen way more that were worse. I docked the instruction manual 2 points because there were points in the documentation where it became obvious that a translation probably occurred into English, from it's original language. None-the-less, even with a few translation issues, the documentation was easy to read and understand. And for Windows users, the diagrams/images pretty much matched what I encountered when navigating the various steps towards getting my repeater up and running. For Mac users (I actually have both Mac and Windows devices), the diagrams did not match what I saw through my Mac setup interface, but the the Repeater is so simple to set up, the minor differences really didn't hamper me from configuring it a second time through a Mac.

SETUP - There are two basic modes for setup. There's whats called a "Wireless Repeater" setup, where the repeater basically is set up to take your routers wireless signal and repeat it wirelessly, using the same Service Set ID (SSID) and password as the router, or there's a "Wireless AP Mode" setup, where the repeater is hardwired to the router via an ethernet cable, and a wireless signal is repeated from the location where the ethernet cable terminates into the repeater. Quite frankly, i'm not sure why anyone would want to use the Wireless AP Mode.
