Style Name: 2.4 GHz - 300 Mbps Verified Purchase
After reviewing many Wifi adapters, the given was to avoid nano adapters as they couldn't handle long hours of surfing/HD streaming, the larger better range adapters were simply ugly and inconvenient to place. I went for the mini because it had 300Mbps which was a prerequisite for me plus it has small and sleek look. I am thoroughly happy with the adapter it performs very well at a long distance and doesn't have a drop in connection, I would recommend this item.

Why 4 stars and not 5? Well, another reviewer mentioned that it gets hot and that leads to a slow down in speed. This did happen to me, but only once, and since then I have connected it to a USB extension where it happily sits on my desk rather than glued to the back of my PC. The installation CD that came with it is rubbish, don't bother installing it simply use the CD as a coaster for your tea. Instead download the very latest drivers from the TP-Link website and away you go! A nice working WiFi adapter for £10!

I hope that helps.

Style Name: 2.4 GHz - 150 Mbps Verified Purchase
I bought one of these a few days ago to replace a faulty built-in wireless card on an ASUS netbook. I use LinuxMint and needed a linux-compatible card. An earlier reviewer said they had bought one and it worked on Linux. However, mine did not, it seems that version #1 of this adapter is supported by the kernel, whereas version #2 is not.
To confirm which version you have:-
Type “lsusb” without the quotes into a Terminal window
The result should look something like this:-
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
If it shows ID 0bda:8179 you have version #2, if it shows ID 0bda:8176 you have version #1
After doing some ‘googling’ I had enough information to be able to locate the source code and compile and install the correct driver. If, like me, you have version#2, the following commands typed (or copied/pasted) into a Terminal window will :-
1) Download and install (from Linux repos) all the software required, if not already installed, to add a git repository and compile drivers from the source code.
2) Create a working folder within your home folder into which the source code will be downloaded from GitHub.com.
3) Compile,install and verify the installation of the driver.
4) Close the Terminal window.

sudo apt-get install git git-core
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic git
mkdir ~/RTL8188EU
cd ~/RTL8188EU
git clone git://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu.git
cd rtl8188eu
make
sudo make install
sudo depmod -a
sudo update-initramfs -u
sudo modprobe 8188eu
exit

The above commands were copied/pasted from my Terminal window after successfully installing the driver onto my netbook running LinuxMint 16 and a desktop machine running LinuxMint 14.

Hope this helps someone. Good Luck.

Well this little USB b/g/n adapter certainly done the business in speeding up my four year old laptop WiFi connection.
Simple to install and also works with Linux Mint KDE as well as Windows 7..nice and compact too!

This amazingly tiny and good looking wireless adapter caught my eye at the computer shop and even though i wanted it for my Apple Macintosh PowerBook G4 and it does not list OS X as being compatible I bought it anyway.

Eager to get this thing working on my Mac I did a bit of searching on Google and managed to find a great third party driver, just for OS X.

It was really easy to setup and I have to say the speed and signal strength is really top notch. I managed to get 100% signal (tried at around 40 feet away from my router) and got the maximum speed of my broadband connection.

Works reliably and the OS X driver uses very little CPU resources (less than 1%).

Tip to get this working on an Apple Mac: Search Google for TL-WN725N Chipset. Once you find the chipset (i forgot what chipset it uses) then search for an OS X driver for that chipset. It is called something like Green WLan or Green something. Just install it, restart the computer and you are ready to go.

Wireless became disabled and had to use Ethernet cable. Unsure this item would work with windows 8.At the price it was worth a try. Product arrived within 2 days. Inserted into USB slot. Requested security key. Entered and had immediate access to the internet. Would recommend purchase without hesitation

Brilliant little device and works brilliantly for my PC . Really easy to commence - I found it easier to do via Desktop via devices and default and connect via WiFi that way. rather than the software they want you to do it with. Mighty fast. You know its on when you see the little green light pulsating. Its just the little on switch on the device is so little you can tell if its depressed or not but when I saw the little light. BINGO all systems were go. I know I am not being technical here but proves that if I skirted my way around it - it truly is a user friendly device for remote use of PC with ROuter.

I bought this because my ASUS laptop had problems with wifi connection (see the first 3 photos). The router isn't near enough to give strong wifi signal and my built in wifi adapter on my laptop doesnt seem to work with weak signals. I had this delivered today using amazon prime and it works brilliantly. For the first time I have full bar wifi connection from the same place I was sitting the day before (see last picture). Installation was quick and easy, you can use the small cd or just download it online. Great product overall.
