Product Description


N600 Dual Band Wireless

The N600 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter TL-WDN3200 allows you to connect a desktop computer or a laptop to a dual band wireless network at up to 300Mbps over 2.4GHz or 5GHz. It brings you the flexibility to select between 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands to accommodate different applications you are running. For bandwidth-intensive applications like HD video streaming and multiplayer gaming, the less crowed 5GHz band is more favorable. For simple tasks like emailing or web surfing , the traditional 2.4GHz band is good enough.




Easy Setup

If your computer's operating system doesn't install the driver of the TL-WDN3200N automatically after plug-in, you just need to install the driver from the bundled CD or from TP-LINK's website. After the driver is installed, you can use the built-in wireless utility in your operating system to connect to a wireless network. If you want to use advanced features of the adapter such as Soft AP, you can install the TP-LINK utility to access those functions.



Create a Hotspot with the SoftAP Feature

Whenever there is only wired Internet connection, you can activate the SoftAP function of the TL-WDN3200 after installing the bundled utility software, and create a Wi-Fi hotspot for mobile devices. This feature is useful when travelling to places where there is only one cable for Internet and mutiple people have to use the Internet.


Other Features

  • WPS Button for quick wireless connection setup
  • Support USB 2.0

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I know there are almost a hundred reviews already, but I hope you will give me just a minute. By the way, I even uploaded images to help you see more about this product. I testes this head-to-head for an hour straight against a Sinmax 300 mbsEtekcity High Power 802.11 B/N/G 300M USB Wireless 1000mw Wifi Network Adapter with Dual Antenna. Of course the Sinmax gave me 5 bars of reception from my 4620LE Jetpack (cellular modem -- 30 feet away) and this gave me 3, but this is more designed for laptops and portability. The Sinmax (made by Elekticity) is portable, but it has those 6" bunny ears. So, what is the verdict? this old up. It gets better reception than the built-in PCI-express wireless card (that has a 5" antenna I had to screw into the card) that came standard with my i-7 Windows 8 ASUS. So if that card is new and this tiny USB antenna can whomp it, it is not a bad portable antenna.

I remember my old T-Mobile USB antenna "dongle" came with m micro card slot and you would use it as a flash drive. This does not--just so you know. It has one function, and it does it reasonably well. I had bad luck with Windows 8, but it did work once I went into Device Manager (Start: search "Device Manager" and click that, look for Network Adapters, and see the images I uploaded). On a separate machine I tried it (the 3200) on Windows 7 and Windows found it right away--the mini-CD is useless.

The speed is good, and the signal strength is better than adequate, but IMHO, if you need a strong signal and you don't mind bunny ears, get the Sinmax (Elekticity). But if you need a LAPTOP or tablet antenna or antenna booster (if yours is weak) this is a great little product.

Got 5Ghz to work on Windows 10 64bit after having it working on 8 previously. Both took different drivers than provided.
For Windows 10, I downloaded the Ralink/Mediatek (they make the chips in these) drivers < IS_Setup_ICS_050615_1.5.39.126 >, installed the drivers and utility, and am posting this with the 5ghz connection. This was after many different drivers and many tries to get it working.

UPDATE 1/14/16: Updated with the latest driver from Mediatek and it fixed high speed issues. Before, it reset when the bandwidth was around 120 Mb/s, but now it sustains the speed. Windows 10, driver 5.1.25.0

This review is for the TP-LINK TL-WDN3200 Dual Band Wireless N600 USB Adapter, a white stick-shaped USB device. The way Amazon has it listed seems to combine reviews for multiple sister products from TP-LINK.

[See updates below--product may not be reliable!]

After buying a dual-band router and learning that 5Ghz is really only useful within a small range and line-of-sight, I decided to switch the family PC to wireless N over 5Ghz, since it resides across the room from said router. One less device on 2.4Ghz.

I probably over-analyze/research things I buy on Amazon, but I like to avoid disappointment. So far this USB adapter is great. I'm getting the same speed that I get via wire (about 42 Mbps down), which makes me very happy. I also bought the UC100 cradle for $13 so that I could set the adapter in an ideal spot. Windows did not have a built-in driver, but the included mini-CD had the driver, which I installed along with the TP-LINK utility. The software is basic, but works well and is not intrusive after everything is up and running. It will also support other adapters attached to your computer if you have any.

Note that this device can also be used in "SoftAP" mode as a wireless access point. So if you only have a modem with a wired connection to your PC, this device can serve as a wireless router by itself. I have not tried this function, but I could see how it might be useful in some situations. The manual is currently available here: [...]

Also, it has an embedded blue link/activity light behind its white face, near the USB plug end. This is not visible until the device is in operation. Probably not a deal-breaker, but worth noting.

I am using this with a Windows 7 PC.

Love this thing!! My old adapter got at most 10-20 mb/s, and almost never reconnected automatically after waking my computer from "sleep" mode. This super attractive little adapter took about 5 mins to set up (thank you push-button WPS!), and has MUCH stronger signal, and since it supports the 5 ghz spectrum that my modem transmits, is now connecting at like 50 mb/s so literally I can download a 50 mb file in 5 seconds! And it ALWAYS connects to wifi automatically after waking my computer!

You would be stoooopid to not get this amazing, easy, inexpensive, and attractive adapter! ❤️

It simply works. Gives a strong signal from about 100 feet away from router and through three walls.

*WARNING FOR GAMERS
The included software for the dongle to control the tp link causes your games to minimize constantly. A fix is, when you close the program instead of minimizing choose "close" or just uninstall the program and use windows (this is what i did and I have had no issues so far)
