Top customer reviews
This works perfectly on Windows 7 Pro 64bit & Windows 10 Pro 64bit. I didn't even have to disable the internal adapter.
Most of the negative, one star ratings, are old, so are no longer valid. In fact just about all of the old "one star" reviews that I read are about the ***Edimax EW-7811UTC AC600 Dual-Band USB Adapter***, NOT this antenna.
Get it straight Amazon. Sloppy.
The only ones that may have some validity also apply to anyone who plugs and unplugs USB connectors frequently. USB connectors tend to become loose with repeated insertions/removal. Not to mention the CR^P than gets into laptop USB ports.
In short THIS ONE works great.
Basically until there's an 802.11AC USB adapter that works flawlessly out of the box with linux, this is probably one of the best options for the Raspberry Pi. (Since the Pi only has USB 2.0, you're never going to get 600Mbps as you would with a laptop.)
I bought this guy recently for a Raspberry Pi project that I've been working on for the last 6 months. In an enterprise WiFi commercial environment, there were a few important office locations (far end perimeters of the Access Points, closed in rooms) where I could not get any sort of WiFi signal. But since I WAS able to get at least 1 bar on my Samsung Galaxy S6 phone and do basic data tests I figured all I needed was a USB WiFi device with a longer range. So....I tried the recommended adafruit one: Long Range WiFi USB with Antenna for Raspberry Pi as well as another Edimax version: Edimax AC1750 Dual-Band Wi-Fi USB 3.0 Adapter as well as a few generic usb dongles, but had found that none of them made any difference in my particular situation. Having had very good experiences with Edimax in the past, I felt that with speaking to them about the shortcomings of their device, I might be able to better understand what the technical hurdles I needed to overcome actually were and get some advice on my WiFI range issue. After the first phone call, with them recommending this device and a second one regarding where to get the compilable driver for linux (specifically Raspian Jesse) after I bought it, I was up and running in no time (they provide great support btw, and at least in my experience, someone is always available to chat). So at the end of the day, this is the only device (there are the aforementioned two as well as quite a few of the standard usb dongle non-antenna types that i didn't bother mentioning) that works perfectly, giving me WiFi connectivity where I previously did not have any whatsoever.
(I have yet to change any settings on the adapter and I'll update this review once I do.)
I followed the below steps to install the drivers:
NOTE: I did not install anything from the supplied CD.
1: Went to the Edimax web page, chose my adapter and then chose the driver download for my Windows 7 64bit PC and saved the zip file to my desktop.
2: Extracted the zip file directly to the desktop (to make it easy to find.)
3: Plugged in the adapter into a USB 3.0 port on my PC. Windows can't add the drivers automatically as it doesn't know where they are yet - don't panic.
4: Went into device manager and right-clicked on the Edimax adapter and chose the "update driver" option. Then navigated to Win 7 64bit and double clicked it.
5: Windows installed the driver and the adapter was ready to use!
