This worked extremely well to help me boost my signal from the house to our travel trailer. I didn't need either CD that it comes with, rather I only needed to hook it all up and let Microsoft do its thing - it set it up and told me it was ready to go.

Once it's set up you just need to open your little window to choose a network to join (or go to Control Panel; Network and Internet; Network and Sharing Center; Connect to a Network ... these instructions are for windows 7) and look at your list - in my case there was a 2nd list after I hooked it up with the same (and more) networks as previously but with a higher signal count (the first list was "Wireless Network Connection" the second was "Wireless Network Connection 2" - you'd want the second one so long as the signals are showing stronger). I chose my network (with full bars instead of 1 or 2) and re-entered my password... everything hooked up from there.

My only issue - this device can only be used for 1 computer... I'm looking into figuring out how to split the connection so I can connect 2 laptops but for now I either have to buy a 2nd one for my mother or share back and forth, which is a bit tiresome, but hardly impossible.

It's almost almost surreal the connection I'm getting with this. I'm about 250 feet from the router, through two double pane windows and a metal-cladded shed blocking line-of sight signal and am showing about 75% signal strength. My router is a Dlink AC1300 DGL5500 which puts out lots of power, but nothing I had so far could do what this little rig can.

As a location-independent professional who travels a lot, weak WiFi is one of my biggest problems. This little device was recommended by a fellow digital nomad and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. It really does what it's supposed to do and has allowed me to work in areas where other people didn't get a good signal. I also purchased the 7dBi antenna for extra coverage. A winning combo!

Really powerful wireless card with an outstanding chipset. There were some driver issues under Kali but the card worked right out of the box on Backbox. Remember if you're looking at this card that it only goes up to wireless G. If you know why you want this card, you won't be disappointed buying from Canadian Shoppe. There may be some online issues with counterfeit versions of these cards but the one I bought from them was 100% genuine.

It has good range, it's plug and play and there's no apparent download speed. The only think you've gotta note, the suction cup for window attachment can let go at which point the antenna just won't receive. I'm about 40 feet from main router which is in the house, and this antenna is in my workshop, yet the signal is well received. I recommend without hesitation.

Best wifi dongle I have ever seen by far. Whereas everyone I have owned can maybe reach 2 houses over, this one from the basement nearly picks up the whole street. Has full function monitor mode and whatnot.

I absolutely love this product! It works just as i had hoped! Apart from not being able to use the mini-CD that they included for the drivers i could still find them on their website so it was no problem. I would recommend to anyone.
