I bought two of these Blueshadow USB WiFi adapters to replace my older adapters which over the years bogged down to a crawl or underperformed.
I installed one Blueshadow to add WiFi ability to my HP desktop and installed another on an aging Lenovo laptop. Both run Windows 10 Home version 1803. I used the installation disc that came with the adapter.
I am paying my internet service provider for 100Mbps down/10Mbps up.
Very impressed with the two Blueshadow adapters.
On my HP desktop, my old adapter was only at 65Mpbs down/2Mbps up. After installing the Blueshadow adapter, my WiFi speed improved to 116Mbps down, 11+ Mbps up.
Over to the Lenovo laptop where my old adapter was only getting about 6-7 Mbps down and 20+ Mbps up. After removing the old adapter and installing the Blueshadow adapter my WiFi speed improved to 116Mbps down/11+ Mbps up. And I didn’t even screw on the antenna!
On my Lenovo laptop I noticed my new Blueshadow WiFi adapter’s “status” window showed a speed of 867.0 Mbps. Before, it was only 72 Mbps with the old adapter.
Now, this is interesting because my new WiFi adapters are connected via USB 2.0 ports. As we all know, USB 2.0 has a theoretical transfer rate of 480Mbps. And, my service is for 100Mbps. But the WiFi “status” window still shows 867Mbps. Just thought I’d throw that in.
As of now, I am happy with the significant speed increase provided by my two Blueshadow WiFi adapters. Hope they work out for you too.
NOTE: I did have to manually adjust both Blueshadow WiFi adapters properties advanced setting Wireless Mode to IEEE 802.11a/n/ac. Otherwise, I would only have gotten about 65Mbps.
