5 out of 5 eggsNice Unit

Pros: Put the disk in, Plug the adapter in, install the driver and it works. After installing I went to a site to see how well it works. I have broadband cable in the house and have multiple machines wired. My average wired connection is 28 to 30 Mbps, This adapter performs at 14 to 22 Mbps. Upload is 2-4 on both wired and on this adapter. I know this thing will handle more but the interwebs will not cooperate with this test. Works great

Cons: My HTPC is an old record player console. I have a 1TB hard drive in it, and now I can take it out back for parties. Always have one of these for mobility

Other Thoughts: No cons Newegg rules, Tp Link makes great stuff

5 out of 5 eggsUSB Wireless dongle

Pros: This wireless ISB network adapter works very well. Its small and easy to set up. It is capable of B/G/N 802.11 and will work with any router. The included disk came with the drivers and software necessary to get it up and running. It only took 5 minutes. The manufactures web site was also a plus. With tons of information about the device and you can also download the drivers and software. By the way it is not necessary to use the software as the native Windows wireless software works fine with this adapter

Cons: No cons at this time. If this changes I will post an update

Other Thoughts: Nowadays you don't need to spend a lot of money on wireless network adapters. Routers are another issue and you should use a quality router for security reason and reliability

5 out of 5 eggsTP Link Wireless N150

Pros: The best thing about this wireless adapter is it's size. It plugs into any available USB port, and sticks out just a bit over a quarter of an inch. It has a little blinking or semi solid green light when there is a good connection.
Installation is simple...put the little CD in, find your adapter on the list, follow the set up steps to connect to your router, and you are good to go.
I have solid 5 bars on the laptop wireless indicator, and web pages pop open quick from anywhere in my house.

Cons: None that I have found yet.

Other Thoughts: For the testing purpose of this TP Link wireless adapter, I used my old 2006 Dell Inspiron 1520 Laptop, with Windows 7 64 Bit for the operating system. I turned off the on board wireless card that came with the laptop, and set up this TP link N150 wireless adapter instead. I have used TP Link products in the past, and have found them to be reliable. You do not have to be a tech wizard in any way to set up and use this nice little wireless adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsplug and play on win 8.1

Pros: I needed a wireless adapter for my mATX motherboard without sacrificing any my pci express lanes (looking to sli). I looked at usb wireless adapters and decided to give this one a shot mainly because of the very cheap price point. I plug it in and the drivers from windows 8.1 instantly recognized it and i was able to log into my home wi-fi. The router is across the room with no walls in between. My download speed is on par with my laptop's built in wireless card so i have no complaints.

Cons: None so far

Pros: None

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for taking the time to check out and review our product.

We are sorry to see that you've had some issues installing this device.

This device is compatbile with Windows 7 and I would suggest trying to download the driver from our site directly if you had some trouble with the CD.

You can find the driver at: http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=&model=TL-WN725N#down

Also note that all you need is the driver and the utility is not completly necessary to make the adapter operational.

If you are still having issues after downloading the driver from our site then you can always contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com.

We also have a 24 hour support hotline that you may call at any time for further support.


Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Really Well

Pros: No surprises here. Load the software on your P.C., install the USB adapter, enter network paraphrase and password and your done. Don't know about the range since my wireless router is in the same room as this USB wifi adapter. As you might guess I always have 100% signal strength. I needed this since I ran out of ethernet ports on my router.

Cons: Can't think of any and have always had good success with Tp-Link products.

5 out of 5 eggsLittle tweaking then great for the price

Pros: - Small
- Great signal with full bars a few rooms away
- Up to 150Mbps (I only see half 76Mbps due to cable router not allowing for selection of wifi channel width of 40)
- Cheap!!

Cons: Still have random drops in connection though I think it is more my cable modem as same issue with all my wifi equipment.

Does take a bit of tweaking Windows to make it a stable constant and fast connection.

Other Thoughts: Very good once you tweak some settings in Windows. For example so far these changes have worked for me.

“Settings – Control Panel – Hardware and Sound - Power Options” choose “Change Plan Settings” then “Change Advanced Power Settings” and under “USB Settings – USB Selective Suspend Settings” Choose “Disable”. Otherwise Windows will randomly turn off power to your USB ports including the adapter. This results in losing connection to network for a few seconds or more, which is annoying if streaming video or doing any kind of file transfer.

Next Under “Settings – Control Panel – Network and Internet – View Network Status and Tasks” choose your wireless connection to bring up the connection status window. Choose “Properties” down at the bottom left. Then “Configure” at top right. Now “Advanced” then choose “Selective Suspend – Disable” and “Wifi Config – Wifi”. The first stops the adapter from randomly shutting off when streaming music and video and the second helps stop connection from dropping and aids with speed.

In your router make sure you are setup using WPA2 with AES encryption. Anything else can cause it to be slower and/or lose connection randomly.

If you have the option set Channel Width from Auto, 20 or 20/40, set it to 40 MHz. This will get you the best possible speeds over wifi on all your equipment not just the adapter here. 20 gives you half the bandwidth speeds, but can increase range.

Lastly make sure you have the latest version of the drivers from the website for your adapter (V1 or V2).

After all this my connection was strong, fast and stable. Before though it was dropping and really slow. These changes really need to be done for any USB Wi-Fi adapter though for best performance.

Other little things in general for all wireless in your home:

Selecting a Wireless Mode of N (or your favorite) only in the router instead of a mixed mode (Eg. B/G/N). This just helps the router send data more efficiently.

If you have a cell phone use a wireless network scanner app like Android's "WiFi Overview 360" (No it's not my app I just like it and it's free) in the play store to see what channel is best to set your router to. You can then choose one with less interference from other networks. Very helpful if you are in an apt building.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to use

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: It was plug in play in my Arch-Linux mod server. Great signal and you really can't beat the price.

Cons: None as of now. Happy with the speed, connectivity and strength.

Other Thoughts: Basically if you have a complaint about this you should have spent more money on a higher end model. ;).
It is a very functional nano wireless receiver for a low cost. I may buy a few more for other devices.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Raspberry Pi

Pros: I've been using this for a Raspberry Pi and it takes some work to get it working but its been rock solid since.

Cons: You have to download and install a custom driver for the Raspberry Pi and this takes some work especially if you have the model A with no network port.
