Customer Reviews

Signal strength on my laptop's wi-fi antenna is much better.
Truth And Justice
Served its purpose of boosting the antenna strength as my laptop was unable to keep a strong enough signal from the router upstairs!
paul foglietta
The antenna on the end feels a little loose and it doesn't fit as securely into my laptop as I might like.

I didn't get my hopes up while waiting on this product to arrive being at such a low price, But when it got here and I installed it, I was amazed. I was using a $60 Linksys wireless adapter before this which climed to be top of the line. However I was picking up poor signal. Granted I was 300 feet away from the router. With Linksys I was getting 13.5 mbps, After I installed this adapter, I was picking up internet at a blistering 108 mbps. Pages were loading lightning quick at 300 feet away. If you want a signal boost, I would recommend this little dynamo. And the price is unbeatable.

This adapter uses Ralink chipset and utility which isnt bad, Its software is really user freindly and has good options included. Its built with solid rubber like hard plastic which feels sturdy and wont break. I got this item in about a week and it worked out of the box with the included cd. Installation was a breeze. Works great for the money and I would buy another one in the future too. If you want a good long range wifi adapter but dont really have alot of money then this is it. Works just as good as the big brand names Alfa and Gsky. A must have !!!

P.S. The user manual is also a good thing to have, It confirmed my opinion that when using these high powered adapters your laptop battery life can drain faster and that its important to turn the adapter off if your not using it. This is true to any high power adapter you get. So if your on the road traveling, its important to conserve energy.

My router is very close to my computer but behind a 3 foot thick brick wall. This adapter gets "Good" to "Very Good" signal, around 80Mbps, and it's consistent. My old G adapter which was also high power, would get around 24-30Mbps speed, never the full 54 for rated G and would et hot and disconnect once in a while. So, this is a big improvement. The driver worked without any problems, and the quality appears to be very high. I run magicJack, a web server, and an ftp server over this and it works great. No problems.

Using my netbook, I couldn't access the WiFi at the motel where I often stayed. The Adapter enabled me to access the wifi when the built in Wifi on my netbook was inadequate.

I used this adapter with several machines running XP and Win 7. I would suggest using the included CD to install the driver. If you plan to install on several computers as I did, copy the installer to a flash drive to make the job easier. You may install the driver only and it will work fine. I would suggest using Windows Zero Config or Wireless Manager rather than the proprietary wireless manager. I can't speak about range quality except that this device had no problem connecting with the infrastructure wireless in the building where I work. I was able to use in any number of USB ports including those in the back of the machine and it connects to the network quickly and reliably.

4 stars only due to somewhat cheap construction. These units can fall apart rather easily and on some I have had to tighten not just the antenna but the antenna threading coupler several times. Plan to use them in a location where they will not be subject to abuse or frequent disturbances. You get what you pay for, but for most applications it will work well enough. It's 2012 now. Easy and reliable wifi access shouldn't cost an arm and a leg.

I have a situation where the laptops onboard wireless is defective, the PCMCIA slot is defective and it only has USB 1.1 slots. I really want to break away from the tied cat5 LAN connection. My search led me to this piece. The price was right to take the chance. Not only does it works...its freaking mint, easy to setup and I will order another one of two...just to have on hand. If you are in need of a affordable way to circumvent conventional methods to go wireless...this piece is for you!

This adapter worked perfectly in my Windows 7 desktop, installed automatically and connects flawlessly. You'd never think that it costs so little! Recommended!

I purchased 3 of these from this company at different times. I must say I impressed with this particular wifi adapter. I have tried several different kinds and brands. Sometimes the Alfa 1000 works better, other times this one works better. It all depends on your location. I mainly use this wifi unit with a cantenna or a parabolic antenna. For the price, I personally feel it's a great deal.
