5.0 out of 5 stars So Small, So Cheap, Yet Works So Well, February 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Got this 802.11n wireless USB adapter for a slightly older laptop that came out just before 11n was standard. The fact it's so tiny means no worries about knocking it out or around when moving the laptop. I was afraid that would mean spotty or poor performance, but that's just not the case. It reports the signal is stronger than with the 11g connection.

Installation was simple. Switched off the internal G wireless, plugged in this tiny adapter and loaded up the software. No issues at all and was up in less than 10 minutes. This was the last non-11n device I had, so now I've locked the router into 11n mode only. The throughput is noticeably faster for all devices - not just the laptop.

Pardon my tech ignorance, BUT, will this allow my downstairs DESKTOP computer to receive WiFi from my upstairs WiFi router?

Please provide this person with an answer, because I have the same question.

In theory, it should. What I would worry about with a desktop is that the case might obstruct or reflect the radio signals since they generally contain a lot of metal. If that were the case, a male to female USB extension cable like AmazonBasics USB 2.0 A-Male to A-Female Extension Cable (3.3 Feet/1.0 Meter) would work to get the transceiver (i.e., the little wireless adapter) up and away from the case. Might not be elegant, but it would probably work.

Thanks, I have a couple of those cables. I will order the Edimax EW-7811Un 150 Mbps Wireless 11n Nano Size USB Adapter with EZmax Setup Wizard (Personal Computers) and give it a try.
