Size: N300 1T2R with 5dBi AntennaItem Package Quantity: 1
My computer is a seven-year-old Dell desktop, a few dozen feet and a few walls away from our Airport Extreme wireless router. I've been using an almost ten-year-old Linksys USB adapter up to now for Internet connectivity, with a typical connection speed of ~24 Mbps. This Linksys adapter also had a very irritating habit of losing connectivity whenever I disconnected any other USB device, such as an external hard drive or my mobile phone, from my computer; I would have to physically reset the adapter by unplugging its USB cable and reconnecting, in both the original Windows XP and the Windows 7 I've upgraded to. I figured it was time for a change.

This replacement USB adapter, chosen on price and on the number of positive reviews it received, arrived quickly and installed easily three days ago, two or three days after ordering. That ~24 Mbps connection speed almost trebled to 65 Mbps instantly. An equally important benefit to me: I can now disconnect other USB devices from my computer without losing connectivity.

Summary: excellent, inexpensive product that was the perfect solution for my purposes. Recommended for others in similar situations.

I bought this for a laptop with a broken wifi card. I did not want to buy one of the bigger wifi dongles because they tend to break and/or wear out the USB ports. Size-wise, this mini-dongle is barely noticeable. It is so small, you can plug it in and forget about it. Unfortunately, it can't beat the laws of physics and small size means also a small antenna and poor reception. There is a reason why many wifi-addon adapters come with huge antennas. This little thing does not get full signal strength even within 20ft of the router. As a result, even though this is advertised as a wireless-n card, you won't get wireless N speeds. The best I have seen was 54mbs, but oftentimes less as the adapter slows down when the signal weakens. That being said, you still can't go wrong for this price. Unless you have a huge home, this card should be adequate. Otherwise it works great. I ran streaming radio on it for hours without a single hiccup. Despite weak signal strength, the adapter has never actually dropped the signal. Unlike other mini-dongles, this one does not get very hot, just a little warm. Driver installation was a breeze. The card uses a standard Realtek chipset. Windows update detected the card right away and had a more current driver than supplied on the mini-CD.

Note that this adapter does NOT have a WPS button, even though the packaging advertises this feature.

it works great with my router. upgrading my laptop internal wireless wasn't a viable option so I figured for the cost I'd try this. With windows 7 64bit edition on our laptop I plugged this usb adapter in and without using it's included cd windows recognized it, installed it's own driver, then I had to log back into my router with this adapter and bam it worked perfect. signal went from 54k to 150k instantly it was amazing. I have another computer still using wired ethernet 100 and this wireless adapter is faster than it. I'm considering upgrading my router to see if I can get even more speed but we'll see about that later. for now I'm totally satisfied.

Received a laptop back from "warranty" with a faulty wireless card. I didn't want to deal with the wait again and decided to buy this unit. Compared it to Airlink and others on here and decided for the price I would give it a shot. The range is great. I grab my signal from a neighbors router which is about 30ft away and 4 thick walls in a pre-1940's built complex.

Very inconspicuous and sticks out maybe 1/2" from back of my laptop. Software was easy to locate and download on the mini-cd that is sent with the dongle(Win Vista). I did have a temporary dongle which I bought from Walmart at 4am when my stock unit broke and was doing research for a class and this one clearly has been better than the Cisco-Valet unit I purchased for around $40 on clearance(has since been returned).

This unit is more compact, which is less hassle than having a full size device like the Cisco hanging off my portable tablet PC. It is thus more flexible and the device management software is much better. typically 4 bars of strength at 20-30feet. Works as well on campus and does not dip below 3 bars at any given moment. Have owned unit approximately 2 weeks and decided to wait an ample amount of time to write a review and am very satisfied as should you.

I'm using a mid-2009 Macbook Pro running OSX Lion (10.7.4 specifically). Lion, as I'm sure many of you Lion users know, has some sort of bug that causes the "Wifi: no hardware installed" error. Not wanting to tear down my computer and replace my Wifi card for what was most likely a software malfunction, I bought this little wireless adapter as a short-term solution until the bug gets fixed. First obnoxious thing: tiny CD, not regular size, so you can't even put it in your Macbook. I put it in a PC at work, pulled off the drivers and installed them from a thumb drive but my computer still didn't recognize my wireless dongle. Went to the Gmyle website, absolutely no help (no drivers or anything).

Finally today I googled "gmyle adapter lion" and I found another Amazon review for a different Gmyle wireless adapter that talked about the drivers being on the Realtek website. Lo and behold, I went to the Realtek website ([...]), typed in the product number (RTL8192CU), scrolled to the bottom of the product page, clicked the software link, and found a driver for Lion! Installed the driver, restarted my computer, plugged in my adapter and a window popped up to connect me to my wireless network. Could not have been easier. I wish I had known about this when I first got the adapter - would have saved me a lot of frustration, so hopefully I can save someone else the same frustration I went through!

As far as the adapter performance goes, it seems on par with my stock Wifi card. I haven't used it much but so far I haven't noticed a difference in page load times or streaming video. I'll edit/update this review when I've used it more to include more actual performance observations.
