Edimax EW-7811UN on Windows 7 (32-bit),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edimax EW-7811UN 150Mbps Wireless Nano USB Adapter (Personal Computers)
Device works great in an Acer netbook running Windows 7 (32-bit). Did not use the provided mini CD, as Windows Update picked up the device immediately as a Realtek adapter. Realtek make the chipset/internals for this adapter and Edimax then sells it on. I also found Realtek drivers online that are more up to date than the ones on Windows Update and are nicely signed too, so I used those to upgrade the drivers to the latest revision.
Worked on both a mixed G/N network and then on native N network (I turned of G once I got this because the netbook was the last device in the network). From my access point/router I can see that with a 40 MHz band the card can easily negotiate a 150Mbps.
It is not clear from the pictures, but there is a little blue LED light on top of the adapter to show network activity (on the top black portion of the device, situation right between the i and m in Edimax).
