I get a steady connection by combining this with a flexible usb adapter and turning it in the direction of the router: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Belkin-F3U134VFLEX-Flexible-USB-Adapter/13214943 It works automatically with Ubuntu 14.10. I very pleased and never thought it would be this good for such a low price.

Customer reviews & ratings
Works great with a flexible USB extenion.
I am overall extremely satisfied with this adapter. It works perfectly on my old Windows Vista desktop. I had to chat with customer support to get a link to download the updated version, because the CD wouldn't download the driver. Customer support was amazing and very patient. They waited with me while I tried each step they explained for me to try, including restarting the computer. In the end, we got it working like a charm! I definitely recommend this product and advise to not be afraid to start a live chat if necessary.
Excellent Wifi Receiver
When the wifi receiver died in my laptop I knew exactly what to do for a very economical repair, I purchased a nano receiver as I had fixed the same problem in another laptop this way. They are no bigger than the nano receiver used for most wireless mice and can be left in the USB port all the time. The TP-Link CD that came with the receiver worked perfectly to install the drivers and my laptop was back to receiving wifi. A great product at a great price.
In 5 minutes you will have a great connection
This took only minutes to install. Pop in the mini CD and in a few minutes this adaptor was up and running. My laptop is an HP that was reloaded with Windows 8 and I didn't have to load any additional drivers. Just the quick install and on my way! The adaptor is fairly tiny which is good because it is not really noticeable- probably the size of a wireless mouse adaptor. There is a bright green light on the adaptor though, which shows that it is transmitting/receiving. The connection is great and I'm getting pretty high speed which was unexpected. Overall I would definitely recommend this adaptor to anyone. And you can't beat the price. My laptops built in adaptor was failing frequently and this is an easy fix to keep the wireless connection.
I've only had this for a week, but since the WIFI on my laptop won't work anymore, this has basically saved me from having to purchase another laptop for business travel needs. I installed per instructions and it's working great, very fast connectivity and connection speeds. I am totally satisfied with this product!
Easy installation, just plug in and sign in to your wireless router. Plugs into front usb on computer. Works great!
Easy to use!
Works great! Easily identified as plug and play wifi adapter on every PC we have without having to use any special software (which is supplied with adapter). We use it mostly as hotspot to connect smart phones and printers. If you have Windows 10, just plug it in and you are up and running in a few seconds.
Works instantly with windows 10 . Great product . Quick delivery
Works awesome bought in 2018. Still working in 2020.
