Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade But Not Really an Upgrade I bought the A8000 to replace my A7000. I deleted the driver for my A7000 and downloaded the driver for the A8000. I ran several speed tests and found the A8000 to be slower than my A7000. I re-boxed the A8000 and it is decorating my shelf while I have reverted to the use of my A7000. Not sure why the upgraded unit is slower, but the speed test numbers speak for themselves. (My A7000 has a much larger antenna than the A8000, which may have something to do with the slower speed of the latter?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for old computers My really old laptop had problems picking up weaker wi-fi signals. I added an A8000 and the problem was solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speed Improver for Desktop Computer Excellent adapter. Boosted the speed of my internet connection by 200 Mbps. The external antenna takes advantage of better line of sight to the router than the internal antenna in the desktop on the floor. One NOTE*** Get a USB 3.x extender cable if you need a 2 meter extension. The USB 2.x extender cables reduce the throughput speed because they cannot handle the data rates of 3.x USB protocols.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need More Speed Not getting the speed I expected. D-Link adapter has proven to be faster in my home environment. I have Nighthawk router. Will do some more testing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Positive Experience With A8000 Adapter Very pleased with this purchase. The download of the software to mate the product with my PCs was smooth and incident free. The PCs identified the product and began using it immediately. The transportability of the adapter has been perfect with my moving the adapter from one PC to another. It has performed flawlessly on video calls, web connections and music streaming. Highly recommend the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adapter I decided to go with the more expensive option that Walmart had and I'm glad I did. Helps me get the most out if my wifi! Before I was doing like 5mbps at most, now it's more like 20mbps average and sometimes more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 Happy Netgear cutomers for the price of 1 Blazing speeds, wow! I got it for my son (he's a gamer). I had a selfish reason for that. I wanted his AC1200 WIFI USB ADAPTER for my old dell laptop. I couldn't find one anywhere local and so I turned off my internal wifi and just plugged it into my USB 3.0 slot and I do not worry about losing my internet connection and It works equally fast for me also. Hooray and Thank You NETGEAR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adapter, works on linux too (read review for how) This adapter will be 100% supported on of the box starting with linux kernel 6.4 I believe. However if you have a fairly recent 6.x kernel it will work as long as you execute the 2 following commands after each reboot: 1) modprobe mt7921u 2) echo 0846 9060 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/mt7921u/new_id It works great for me on both my fedora distribution PC and my raspberry 4. Best wifi adapter I ever used. very fast and strong signal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! I'm very pleased with this WiFi adapter. My previous WiFi adapter would frequently drop the WiFi connection but I haven't had any issues with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Fast and Cool Replaced my old T9UH with this and WOW. Much faster and doesn't disconnect. The other thing that is very interesting is that this adapter doesn't get hot or even warm which is good because there is less thermal fatigue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Receives signal a long way Works great. I have to wi-fi a signal about 35 yards to another building. My last Adapter did not work on the new computer I had bought, so I gave this one a try. Works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eh when it works, it’s great. it’s not a great solution for if your trying to game with others in the house as wi-fi itself isn’t great, also it doesn’t like to automatically turn on when it’s plugged in and i have to re plug it every time which gets annoying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works outside I initially got this because the wifi card in my laptop stopped working and I wanted to try this before more costly options. But this ended up being way better because now I can get a strong wifi signal on our back porch and now I can work efficiently outside! It also picks up signal at the arboretum by me so I can work there too :) LOVE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WiFi Extender Easy to install (10-15 minutes) depending on outside distractions. The nighthawk adapter (A8000) works very well with my laptop. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Connections My other adapters were having issues with latency and staying connected to the router for more than a day or two. This unit has been connected to the network for over a week now with zero issues and excellent latency/performance.
