Works great on 5Ghz network
Posted by: Rayvo from: Chicago, IL on
There are over 20 2.4 Ghz networks that I can see, so wifi on that spectrum sucks for me. After switching to a 5 Ghz network, I'm getting much better speeds. This dongle was a very simple solution and I'm once again getting good network traffic speeds.

Great addition to laptop
Posted by: Zatchillac from: Owensboro, Ky on
I live in an apartment that suffers from interference from a billion other routers surrounding me. The 2.4Ghz band is borderline pointless here, what few devices I have that only support 2.4 barely work and the connection drops a lot. Went ahead and got this little adapter for my cheap laptop and it works great. I don't have an AC router yet so I can't say how much better AC does than N but the 5Ghz band works fine and I can actually do homework without worrying about losing connection. Compared to a lot of other adapters this one is fairly small, so that's a plus, although I wish it was a little smaller. I think it came with software but I didn't install anything; if I remember correctly I think I might've gone to Netgear's website and downloaded a driver. I've had this for a couple of months now and so far so good. If you need 5Ghz, I highly recommend this one.

Perfect Substitute for Internal NIC
Posted by: Jeremiah from: on
This is exactly what I needed. It is low profile (only sticks out about 1/8" farther than my Logitech mouse receiver. This replaced my internal Intel NIC on my HP laptop which died (I blame Win10). With the smaller size, I think there are range limitations compared to the internal card (which is to be expected).

I purchased this WIFI adapter for an older laptop that just would not stay connected to my network. It works great and now I have a reliable connection.
