    Good usb wifi device

    First off I like the fact that this is a slim and sleek design. Overall I think this device does provide some value and I've actually used it less for laptop use as opposed to a home server I've that doesn't have wifi built in to the PC. As most laptops have dual band wifi these days you may not need a device like this unless your pc has an older wifi module. However if you don't, this could be for you. Overall it performed as expected given the speeds. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    I tested this wireless adapter on a Lenovo ThinkPad 460s using the USB 3.0 port (SS) using whatever the default Windows 10 driver is. The Adapter came with a CDROM, but my laptop doesn't have a CD drive, so I didn't test with the TP-Link drivers, which may be why my bandwidth is slow. I did try testing with two different routers (cheap vs expensive) though, to see if that made a difference: Connected to TP-Link Archer C59: 10 ft away: 95Mbps/6Mbps with my Lenovo built-in wireless, and got 63Mbps/6Mbps with the T4U wireless adapter. 35 ft away (line of sight): 95Mbps/6Mbps with Lenovo built-in wireless, and 56Mbps/6Mbps with the T4U wireless adapter. farthest away (2 stories): 95Mbps/6Mbps with Lenovo built-in wireless, and 10Mbps down, could not connect for upload speed. Connected to TP-Link Archer A2300: 5 ft away: 122Mbps/6Mbps with my Lenovo built-in wireless, and got 80Mbps/6Mbps with the T4U wireless adapter. 10 ft away: 122Mbps/6Mbps with my Lenovo built-in wireless, and got 72Mbps/5.5Mbps with the T4U wireless adapter. 35 ft away (line of sight): 122Mbps/6Mbps with Lenovo built-in wireless, and 38Mbps/6Mbps with the T4U wireless adapter. farthest away (2 stories):120Mbps/6Mbps with Lenovo built-in wireless, and 32Mbps down/ 5.5 up. I would recommend this product for connecting a desktop if you needed to, with the caveat that this wireless dongle doesn't perform as well as laptop wireless connection with better antennas.
