Compaq C700 Presario note book PC (with inbuilt Wi-Fi turned off)
What does it do? What's it for?
USB dongle for PCs/Macs that don't have inbuilt Wi-Fi to connect to wireless networks.
What's in the box?
· Installation CD.
· USB extension cable with an USB desktop mount/stand (primarily needed for a desktop PC).
· USB Wi-Fi dongle with short aerial.
Turned off Wi-Fi on my notebook PC and installed dongle into a USB port. Found New Hardware wizard prompted me for the installation CD with drivers. Inserted CD and followed the prompts. Software couldn't find the driver, so not so easy after all. While I was wondering what to do next, eventually an Ezimax install wizard from the CD started and installation proceeded.
A user manual and quick guide are provided on the CD.
Scanning for Wi-Fi networks located far more than my inbuilt equipment. Located my network and added my network key and quickly connected. A wireless utility shows network strength, status and signal strength.
Even though I was connected to my network, initially there was no internet access; no e-mail or web browser. A reboot fixed that issue.
Web browsing and e-mail work normally and the signal seems robust. Taking my notebook PC outside wasn't an issue and the signal remained strong and robust.
Even though this is a good piece of kit, I didn't really need it on my notebook PC. From control panel I was able to identify the Edi Wireless LAN software and click uninstall. Windows security checked I really wanted to do this and an uninstall wizard did the rest. A reboot was required afterwards.
Fit for purpose, easy to use and seems to have better reception than inbuilt Wi-Fi LAN cards. Recommended.
I have been using the Edimax adaptor with a one year old laptop computer which is running on Windows Vista, and a Netgear DG834N router. The laptop has it's own built in wifi too which has allowed me to compare the Edimax against it. Installation was fairly simple following the supplied software cd, and in my viewthe Edimax software is actually better than the standard networking software as supplied with Windows Vista. It gives a far better idea of what's actually happening with your network than Vista does and for that reason I'd recommend installing the Edimax software too.
As far as increased range goes I found that it wasn't massively better (when connected straight into the laptop) than the built in equipment in terms of detecting the signal. The difference does come in making the most of that signal though, which is where the Edimax shines as it maintains a better transfer rate than normally achieved when the signal is weak. It is certainly far better than the other USB adaptors I've tried in terms of performance and also in terms of appearance.
I use it wlth a 2001 vintage iMac G4 which only has USB 1.1 - but don't expect it to be as fast as with USB 2.0.
The only downside is that there is no accompanying literature to help with the install - it's all on the CD, see 'Driver-Utility for Mac', open the dmg disk image and select your version of Mac OS X.
However if you have 10.4 Tiger, beware the driver on the disk doesn't work and you need to download: USB RT2870 version from [...]
Find USBWirelessUtility in your Applications folder and run it before plugging the adapter into your USB.
Set-up is fairly automatic - just go to 'Site Survey', to select your router, then 'Add Profile', and then enter your WEP/WPA key under 'Authentification & Security'.
I installed on a desktop PC running Vista 64. Previously I had been using a wired connection. I first of all downloaded the latest drivers from the Edimax site (I didn't use the CD which is older) and tried that. The install seemed to go OK and afterwards I could see the device but nothing was working. No networks were visible in the Edimax utility and the "Rescan" button was greyed out.
In Windows when I went to Manage Connections, I found that the adapter was disabled. I could Enable it and Windows reported that it was enabled in a dialog box pop-up, but if I looked at it again it was still Disabled. I tried uninstallng and reinstalling, rebooting and even installing the older software from the CD. Nothing worked. When I right-clicked the adapter in Windows Manage COnnections and selected Diagnose, I saw three error messages. One was that the Windows Wireless Service was not running. I clicked on this to enable it and no errors were reported but still no joy. Then I went into Windows Services manager (Click Start and then type Services.msc in the search box or right-click on Computer in Explorer and select Manage) and found that the service ("WLAN AutoConfig") still wasn't running. I right clicked on it, selected Properties and then set the "Startup Type" to "Automatic" and then clicked the Start button.
Then it all worked. So it seems that the install of the drivers works OK but it's not smart enough to enable Windows wireless networking if it's not already turned on. I was then somewhat disappointed with the performance.Read more ›
