    Works as intended, without a ridiculously detrimental impact to download and upload speeds

    Amazing solution to faster Internet speeds. MY PC, less than one year old, had a 2.4 Ghz network card that couldn't handle the speed I was promised with my new bundled plan. This Netgear Adapter bumped the Ghz up to 5.0 and speeds reached more than 150 Mbps. It was a miracle!

    The wireless router supplied by my fiber provider is supposed to support twice that speed but I top out at 300 with actual throughput being slightly less. It is significantly better with a Netgear R7000 router.

    Wireless speeds are decent and range is better than expected. A very reasonably priced device for standard wireless connectivity.

    Good WIFI Adapter

    Good plug-n-go WiFi adapter for the price, boosts download speeds most of the time. Main complaint is download speeds slow down, even with the adapter, plastic back end of the adapter is constructed in such a manner that two USB ports are taken up. Would recommend however for someone looking for a more reliable WiFi connection.

    Bought this wifi adapter because I needed to set up a desktop in an area with no Ethernet jack. Installation was simple, drivers installed in less than a minute. I get good speed especially considering where the router is located.

    Works as designed, no connection issues, reliable. The driver takes a minute to load and negotiate, but stays connected. It only requires USB 2, and I'm using it on Win 7. If you want a cost effective wireless solution without the need for a dongle this will more than suffice.

    Great little dongle for the $$$

    I recently had to move into a new apartment and unfortuantely could not hard-wire my gaming PC to my router anymore. Although I would never recommend wireless over a wired connection to your internet box, this little dongle is a great alternative. I game pretty regularly (I live by myself with a 100 mbps internet package) and have never had an issue with lag or download speeds. Defintely worth the purchase!

    Does exactly what you’d expect for the cost.

    I normally only build a PC for Ethernet connection and if it's for WiFi I'll use a motherboard that has the option, but I had an older PC laying around and decided to throw a few spare parts in it for the kids. Instead of running new cable to a new room I simply bought this, installed the drivers, and it works like a champ. Physical connection will get me about 200-215mb/s and on 5ghz about 30 ft and two walls away from the router it speed tests around 180-190mb/s so I can't complain! No downtime, if it's plugged in it works. The only downside I could see is if someone didn't have a physical connection and also didn't have a disc drive, it would be hard to get the drivers to really get it going.

    Purchased to improve Wi-Fi connectivity issues

    Last year, I purchased an HP laptop and was constantly having problems with the computer dropping connection from my Wi-fi, even when I was within 5 feet of router. Even tried a Wi-Fi range extender, which still didn't help much. I bought this Netgear wireless adapter as a replacement for the built-in Wi-Fi adapter, having tried everything else. Installation was a breeze, and connectivity has improved dramatically...not one dropped connection, even from over 30 feet from the router. Also, the speed has really improved. Highly recommended.
