    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. Submitted as part of a free sample program.
