Style Name: N150 Nano Verified Purchase
Having suffered from an internal WiFi card failure on my HP laptop (a common problem on some models), I've been looking to get a economical and reliable alternative, that'd quickly and effectively get me reconnected to the online world.

My issue had been that the 'profile' of plug-in WiFi 'dongles', that all seemed to be about the same size (think about half the size of a mobile broadband dongle, and you're about there). Easily pocket size, but a larger profile meant that, realistically, they needed to be removed before moving a laptop about or packing it away.

THIS tiny lil' item takes all the worries away. I honestly can't imagine a WiFi adaptor getting that much smaller, as it only 'just' protrudes from my laptop's USB port. It's 'just enough' to be able to get a hold it on the rare occassions where I may need to remove it. I've not caught it on anything yet, so I'm more than happy to just leave it in situ'.

I've not tested connectivity away from my home hub yet, but so far everything has checked out to be just fine. Initialisation of the dongle, connection are responsive, signal strength and speed meters run right at the upper scale and are stable.

The packaging contains a basic set of (paper) installation instructions, the dongle, the (3") installation CD; and as mentioed in another review, that may cause a problem for owners of slot-loading drives.

I didn't have any issues, with the 'tray' drive on my laptop, with the installation taking only a couple of minutes; to request the disc, find the driver and complete the installation. It really was just a case of accepting a few installation steps and sitting back to let the laptop sort itself out.

I'm an IT technician and like to have a spare bit of kit in my toolbag. I purchased a few of these wireless USB adaptors because occassionally I get computers that have issues with the built in network card.

I needed to use one of these yesterday and it happens. I had a client that had issues with the built-in network card. I had to reinstall windows and needed a WiFi dongle to download updates etc. The adapter worked ok for the initial download, but I ran into problems after joining the computer to the domain. No matter the configuration that's used - the adapter will not function on the login / welcome screen and also seems to drop the password when logged in.

Don't get me wrong - if you are a home user, this item will work fine for you. If you are looking to join your computer to a domain or work network, I would suggest the Netgear WN3100M instead - we have used this previously and never had an issue [...]

Pro's:
- Great for home users
- Very small size (does not stick out very far)
- Good coverage

Con's:
- Bad for domain computers (issue with login / welcome screen)
- Occasionally forgets WiFi credentials and needs re-adding.

- Matt

Works perfect with my raspberry pi :)
Just make sure you run it on the direct ports and not through a hub
Just run this script: [...] and your good togo...

Style Name: N300 with 3dBi PCI Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace TP-Link TL-WN851N Wireless N PCI Adapter, which I had problems with.

I'm very happy with it. My range is significantly improved over my old card, the drivers seem to be much better too (I can actually connect to an 802.11n network at wireless N speeds now!), and the latency has dropped a lot as well, making it a much better wifi card to use for gaming online.

I've seen a few reviews below criticising the card for not delivering the speeds they were hoping for. Firstly, it is a little cheeky to not list the Tx speed as 150mbps. But in fairness, you'll never actually achieve 300mbps coming in. With any connection, quite a lot of the bandwidth goes into the overheads needed to send data. Even a cabled ethernet connection, running at 100mbps, will in reality only deliver about 80mbps actual transfer speeds because the remaining 20mbps is required to make the connection work. There are similar overheads involved in wireless transfer rates too. Now throw in potential interferences (other wifi networks, walls, electrical equipment etc.) and you begin to realise that speeds will tend to diminish in normal circumstances.

Wireless-G claims to get 54mbps, but I've never seen any card of mine get above 20mbps. Similarly, this card has given me an output of 70mbps, which I think is pretty good.

Overall, I think this is a solid purchase, and I think some of the negativity in other reviews owes as much to false expectations as anything. If you really need super fast speeds, try using 1Gbps ethernet or maybe the plug-in ethernet options out there.

Style Name: N150 Nano
I purchased this for an old laptop that had no wireless connectivity built in. The laptop is pretty old and runs an old version of Windows XP (it hadn't been connected to the internet for a couple of years so therefore was not up to date with the latest Microsoft updates). My network is modern and uses WPA2 encryption.

This network adapter is very, very tiny, protruding probably about 7mm from the socket. Installation was faultless and the only thing I needed to do was enter the network key, after which it has performed brilliantly.

I've configured and used several different types of network adapters in the past and they all seem very flakey in the way they install and work, usually giving sporadic problems and patchy coverage. This is not the case however with this adapter which seems to work faultlessly - it's so refreshing to have technology that works well!
