This worked perfectly and was very straightforward to use.

This worked perfectly and was very straightforward to use. I plugged it into a desktop computer I had out in my shop that didn't have on-board wifi and I didn't want to run Ethernet cable to, and my internet speeds are maxed out. I do use gigabit in the rest of the house and file transfers don't quite hit gigabit speeds (obviously), but they're plenty fast enough for my needs.

Negligible Difference
by Valued Customer on June 10, 2018

We got this in hopes of improving the connection of the laptop from across the house from the router. Our office area and router are on the opposite end of our house from the bedroom, and often the connection for our phones and laptops, and my Kindle, is sluggish when we're in the bedroom. My husband and I only noticed a negligible improvement. Could be that we just have too much of a dead zone.

Fixed my failing Samsung 4K TV's wonky wifi

I own a Samsung 4K TV and the wifi cuts out at random times. I did a lot of research and this is a common problem with 2016 and 2017 Samsung 4K TVs. Tech support was no help. My solution is to use this Wireless-N adapter. I now have a strong, fast signal that never cuts out.

An Inexpensive alternative to buying and installing a Wireless card.
by Valued Customer on May 20, 2018
Verified Purchase

An affordable option if you have a desktop or Laptop that needs a wifi connection. I got it to try to resolve some wifi issues with my HP Stream 14 Laptop but the chronic disconnect issues I was having continued. I tried to connect to an older Dell I had which had no wireless adaptor but it did not recognize the driver at all.You may be able to have better luck with this wireless USB though as my house was built n 1930 and has plaster walls all over which tend to degrade wireless signals (and HD TV air signals too). It's very affordable but I'll need to invest in a more powerful and more expensive alternative.

Good, but not good enough for long distance access. Edit: Search for better drivers and it will be.

AmazonBasics Wi-Fi 11N USB Adapter - 300 Mbps, BlackIf you are looking for an adapter to connect over a long distance, this adapter will disappoint and frustrate you.Now if you just want to add WiFi capabilities to an old computer or replace a broken WiFi card, and the router you will be connecting too is not too far away, then this is more than adequate.When you find that sweet spot by playing with the antenna (check the status), speeds are adequate. It is also possible to share the connection with other devices via virtual wifi.Good value and great for normal use.Edit: I am now giving this 4 stars. I am now extremely happy with this adapter. The trick was to find better drivers, and those were found by searching for adapters that use the same 8192eu chipset.

A bit clunky, but fast
by Valued Customer on March 30, 2018

It does the job, but in this age of nano adapters the antenna seems a bit clunky.Install was pretty uneventful and the coverage is excellent as is the throughput speed on my Windows 10 HP laptop (I connect to a�Linksys AC3000 Max-Stream Tri-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender / Booster / Repeater (RE9000)�that I use as a secondary router in my house), perhaps the antenna helps. Unlike nano adapters this one needs to be removed before putting the laptop in its case, something I'll need to get used to again if I need to use this Wi-Fi adapter for better network coverage.Overall, I think I'll carry this with the laptop when on the road, but reserve its use for when connecting is a problem.

Not sure
by Valued Customer on March 18, 2018
Verified Purchase

I tried this on a 5 year old lenovo laptop. I can't get this to work and I'm not sure if it's the adapter's problem or the laptops, because the laptop before could not get the wifi signal. I downloaded drivers and went the extra mile trying to make this work and nothing. I don't want to give it just one star because I'm not techie enough to know why, whether it's the Lenovo's fault or not.

Good for the price

This is a reliable Wi-Fi adapter. Once you get it up and running, it works fine. Remember this, though: If you are not particularly tech savvy, you should come back here and read through the reviews offering install advice as the Amazon instructions seem to be basically scarce. I'm using it to supply Wi-Fi to an older desktop PC running Windows 7. Cost-wise, this is about average for an adapter of this level. No complaints, really, except for the lack of instructional guidance.

Great performance, but lacking initial setup support
by Valued Customer on February 21, 2018

This adapter brings Wi-Fi life back to an older laptop allowing web surfing to be enjoyable once again. The downside is found right at the start when trying to install the driver with the included cd. You will be disappointed and frustrated if you have a Windows OS because the install disc only works for Linux and Mac as of the time of this writing. It appears someone forgot to place an executable file for Windows OS and there in lies the hurdle. After a great deal of searching the web, following the hints provided in other reviews, I just plugged the adapter in a USB port of the laptop and left it running for the day. To my surprise, the computer recognized the need for a driver update and did all the work for me. So, my conclusion is that this adapter is really plug n play.Overall, I'm very happy with the quality, build and performance of the adaptor!

I am very happy with this product

I had my IT at work help me get this set up on my laptop at work. I would often have issues with my laptop dropping off the wifi/network, when I would be in meetings, but since using this, I have had zero issues. I am very happy with this product.
