After upgrading my older laptop to Windows 10, I was unable to obtain a driver for the wireless adapter on the motherboard. Popped this little jewel into one of the USB ports on the back and within a couple of minutes I was on the network. So tiny it doesn't need to ever be removed, too, so convenient even in the laptop's case.

Fixed my problem
Worked great. I have Windows 10 and the instructions stated the drivers were already loaded for the adapter in Windows 10. They weren't, however I loaded them from the mini CD provided and they worked fine. The adapter is small and you don't even notice it being in the USB port. Has good range. Great adapter for a low price.
nice small strong
working well like the size would like not having one but not built on pc
This little thing is just great.
I bought this little adapter when it was on sale and it cost me only $7.26. It came with a mini cd with software on it. I plugged the thing into my ancient e-machine desktop computer put the cd in the drive and I was in business immediately. Or maybe it was the other way around I can't remember. It was really easy. I am amazed at how fast it is as well. This adapter is the size of a thumbnail on a person's thumb but works really well. I have 75 mbps internet with Comcast and the adapter runs at 72 mbps per second. That is not bad at all. It does not slow down either. The only time it does slow down is when I am using my bandwidth to run other computers or devices. Or when Comcast slows down which we all know about right? And when the slow down occurs it has only been to 58 mbps with a strong signal. One thing I did notice though is I plugged it into the front usb port of my computer and it picked up the Comcast free wi-fi signals but when I plugged it into the back of my tower it did not. I can't explain that one. But I use my own secure account so I do not really care. I think I read somewhere where it said this adapter uses a direct line of sight signal and works best that way. My modem is in my office and the computer an ancient e-machine desktop is in my dining room and the signal reaches all the way over there just fine. No problems. My home is modest though. I recommend this product. I may look into tweaking the software a little but frankly I am just too lazy and I just don't care. I am also a cheapskate and I am glad I did not spend $30.00 or more on a more expensive item instead of this one. I think I saw another adapter with antennas on it for around $15.00 from Walmart.com but this one was the cheapest one from Walmart.com at the time so that is why I bought it. I saw that other sellers had ones for less on Walmart's website but I wanted to be able to return it to the store if there were any problems. I had it shipped site to store so I did not have to pay for any shipping fees. Once again me being a cheapskate. So this is worth it but if the one with the antennas on it is still on here it may be better I don't know. Before I forget I am running Windows Xp Home edition on the ancient desktop tower that the adapter is plugged into and if it will run on this it will run on anything. I guess I will sum up my rating by saying this adapter is plug and play and just great.
Inexpensive, but is working great. I'm able to access the internet again from my old Acer One Netbook.
Using with an older Desktop
Really works great! Modem/Router is down one floor and it is receiving the WiFi signal fine.
Happy Husband! Happy Wife!
Just what my Husband was hoping to find. He is Very Happy especially with the price and product that it works on his old tower computer which is again up and running just like him at 83. Thank You! Lollypop
Arrived fast, and was plug and play on an HP Stream Notebook running Linux Ubuntu operating system. Out of the package, into the USB port, and back online! Good range, low profile stays out of the way, an excellent product.
Great device for the money
I've owned several of these adapters and they all seemed to work great. For some reason, this one? The PC couldn't connect with this device. Well let me back up. The laptop I bought this for was a friends. It didn't have internet capability. I own a Dell desktop that also didn't have internet capability but I put one of these devices on it and works GREAT. Actually on it typing this review. I kept getting "No Connection" error on the laptop and I really do believe it's the laptop but since it's not mine, there's not much more I can do about it. I'm not returning this adapter, just left it with the laptop maybe sometime it will work after some tweaking with the laptop. This device was a great buy, received it on time and was packaged very well so for that it gets 3 stars. Again I would still recommend it. It wouldn't be fair to give this review 5 stars however it feel it's still a great product.
Work for a day and stopped
I waited 2 weeks for this item to come. When I got it I plugged it into the computer and it worked great. I shut the computer off came back the next morning and it would not work again. So I went to Walmart and bought a $30 one. Because I didn't want to wait another two weeks for another one to come online
