    "This USB adapter antenna is pretty good giving me a moderate signal from a router (about 40 or so feet away) The 5ghz signal increased the speed of my internet by quite a lot over the stock 2.3ghz wireless card and I am very happy with the purchase...While I ended up not keeping this adapter and switched to a hardline connection instead, this guy did a bang up job and would recommend if you're not able to upgrade and internal WiFi adapter or have no WiFi built in at all"

    "Got the job done...Great for any pc...My mini laptop can do wi fi but a hard wire connection works faster The insignia USB adapter is lite weight & sits in the laptop as a part of it Now I have 2 options available to go online...So, keep in mind that this probably isn't appropriate for something like a wake-on-lan remote application (although it may be smart enough to turn on in such a situation.) But if you have a standard solid Ethernet connection, it's just fine"

    "Does a great job...Very easy set up...I would recommend it for a computer that is within 10 or 15 feet of the router or in the same room but for a desktop that has several walls and some distance between the computer and the router I would suggest getting a free standing receiver that has its own base and can be moved around a little to get a better signal...I don't have a disk drive for my computer so I had to download the drivers for it on a different computer and then load it onto my main computer, but other than that it's worked great so far"

    "Easy easy set up...Very easy to use...This bluetooth speaker adapter has good range to my phone but the only thing I don't like about it is that is connects automatically to my phone when I get home which I find annoying if I don't want to listen to music just then and it will keep reconnecting over and over if I don't turn it off...As part of my search for a good wireless sound system for around $75, this plus the Logitech - Z313 2.1-Channel Speaker System (3-Piece) - Black/Silver brought me good sound fidelity and wireless capability and was within my budget"
