        How large is the connection radius?   (9 Answers)

          Answer

          Connection radius all depends on what wireless router you have, location of the router in respect to location you are attempting to connect, room/house construction, and many other variables. No one could give a specific distance that would be accurate for your application. We use this in a corner room on the second story. Our router is in a central location on the main floor. Our house has 2x6 wall construction and there is a total of three walls and the ceiling/floor between them. The connection for us is outstanding. For us this works much better than the built in wi-fi card in my son's computer (4 year old HP).

              Yes, be warned when playing multiplayer games. This can go off for a couple seconds which will make it annoying for hardcore gamers

                Answer

                Hi, my son used the N300 wireless N-USB adapter to turn my desktop PC into a wireless PC. It was quick and easy just follow setup directions. Well worth the $40.00. It's small enough to put just behind my monitor so I can see the little blue light and make sure it's connecting. There is a a slight delay in opening pages etc but it's ok for me as long as I have my desktop PC working. So give it a try, and if you're not happy write a review of why you're not happy with it.

                  Will this N300 adapter conflict with the internal wifi circuit of a HP 15-p066us laptop with Windows 8.1? Will the original internal wifi capability need to be disabled? My stock internal wifi is fading away and I was told it can't be replaced.   (2 Answers)

                    My Toshiba satellite kept dropping WI fi and I just plugged in the N300, connected, and went to work. I don't think it will interfere whether you disable your internal WiFi or not.

                      Not unless your printer has a USB port for network connectivity and I don't know of any that do. This adapter is intended to be used on PCs and really not anything else.
