Top customer reviews
When the Edimax EW-7811Un arrived, I was able to use the default Windows-10 and Mini CD-ROM to install the driver and support software; however, neither solution worked for longer than several minutes before failing. Most troubling was that the Edimax EW-7811Un “ALMOST” worked.
When I read the current product reviews, as they pertain to Windows-10, I realized that my experience was not unique and there were a number of unhappy people who ordered the Edimax EW-7811Un for use with Windows-10. In reviewing several USB WiFi solutions on Amazon, I noticed that the Windows-10 upgrades were more problematic. This could be caused by (1) older and slower hardware or (2) the Windows-10 upgrade image was not quite the same as a native Windows-10 image.
For several days I considered writing a scathing review while devising alternative solutions but kept returning to the fact that the software was almost on the cusp of working. Finally, I called the Edimax support number, expecting technical support Hades, only to be quickly connected with a knowledge support technician. When I described the problem, the technician indicated that the wrong software was being distributed for Windows-10 and provided guidance on where to find the correct software, which was not on the primary Edimax website. As Amazon doesn’t support the posting of URL’s, the following navigation is provided on where to find the correct software:
Navagation: edimax.us | support | download drives
On the “Driver & Manual Download” page, go to Section 7 and download the ZIP compressed driver EW-7811Un Win v184.108.40.206, which is the first entry in Section 7.
I used a tablet to download the file EW-7811Un_Windows_driver_v220.127.116.11.zip and then transferred the file to Windows-10 using a USB interface. Un-ZIP the file, using Windows-10, and then run the program “Setup”. This not a GUI and runs under a DOS shell, so just wait until it completes. As Edimax Support recommended, reboot your Windows-10 system, and you should be good to go!
A few off-the-cuff observations:
(1) A built-in laptop WiFi generally has a hidden and sometimes large antenna under the case. The Edimax may not work in WiFi marginal areas of your home. There are Edimax products with large external antennas but these will not have the small form factor of the Edimax EW-7811Un. If the connection is very poor the Edumax is flagged as “Turned Off” and you may have to use Windows-10 to re-enable the WiFi. This could be a bug!
(2) I noticed that the Edimax EW-7811Un sometimes appears to go to sleep. Turning Device “Power Management” OFF may correct that problem.
I have now run a four hour series of serious stress tests and, with the exception of marginal areas in my home, the Edimax EW-7811Un has performed well. I am giving this product “Five Starts” because of the good performance at a very affordable price point. Yes, Edimax’s software quality control was troubling in this case, but I would give their Technical Support “Six Stars” without a second thought.
Microsoft Windows-10 upgrade policy was highly innovative and has given new life to older hardware and after market upgrades such as the Edimax EW-7811Un. Edimax and Amazon have to do a better job of communicating the good news to their customers.
Edit: After a few weeks it began dropping the USB 3.0 port connection and it would take a reboot for it to find available networks again. Tried the most recent drivers for both the OS and the adapter, reinstalled the firmware on the router - nothing helped. That said, it works fine on USB 2.0 ports. Its a little slower, but still fast. Still, I wish it would work in a USB 3.0 port. Knocking a star off for this.
Then I find this. It's only the size of a wireless mouse dongle and offers both WiFi and Bluetooth, no bulky antenna. It is the smallest WiFi Bluetooth 2-in-1 adapter I found. Plugging it onto my Surface Pro 3 has minimal impact on portability. (Though it takes up the only USB port Surface Pro 3 has, but this blame is on Microsoft.) It is not simple plug-and-play on Windows 10 (anniversary edition), and it does not work immediately after installing driver (requires a workaround as described [...], but it saved my Surface Pro 3 from being a useless brick. Hopefully Edimax engineers will fix the Windows 10 driver installation problem. That would make this product really awesome.
Update: I find its wifi signal not as good as Surface built-in wifi. In some places where I used to have a bit slow but usable connection before the built in wifi died, I now have very slow connection that's sometimes now useable. Though given the size it's unreasonable to expect it work as well as built-in wifi.
Update: it worked fine with my old Comcast router. Later I upgraded to a TP-Link Archer C7 router, which supports dual band and 1000Mbps. However, this tremendously slow down wifi when using Edimax with my Surface. I am only able to get about 1Mbps or even less and the connection is unstable. It's not usable. All my other devices work fine so it's unlikely to be the router's fault. It might be the case that the newer dual band wifi somehow interferes with Edimax and causes this problem. I tried contacting Edimax customer service and tried the settings they provided but no lock. I really wish this device work, but it doesn't.
