Rated 5 out of 5 by from This device brought high speed internet to our older PCsWithin a few minutes of opening the box, the device was plugged in and operational. The very simple setup had me online via a wireless hotspot very quickly. Our computers have only wired network connections with our building having only T1 connections to the web. Adding this device gave us easy access to use a hot spot's 4G speed for presentations and video conference calls without having to copy all data onto a laptop. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what I neededI purchased this for a laptop that had a bad internal wireless card. I didn't want the hassle of dismantling my laptop so I bought this instead. Plugged in, recognized immediately, and has better signal quality than the old card. The small form factor is great too so I don't have to worry about bumping it or anything catching and breaking it by mistake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this...This is going to be very long because I want to add a little tech support here in the event anyone has major issues with getting it to work on windows 10. Before I list the steps I took to correct the problem, though, I want to first say this in an amazing product for the price. I get and maintain a super fast connection with this tiny little thing that plugs discretely into my usb port. When I first opened the package, I had doubts something so tiny could do what I wanted to do from an usb. Anyway, I love, love, love this, but I had major issues getting it to work with windows 10 and I want to make this extremely clear it is a problem with windows 10, not the product. I wanted it to work with mobile hotspot. We live in a very rural area and tried to get a more reliable wifi service, but they were unable to get a signal strong enough for our particular location. BUT! We had cell phone service fine (go figure), but for some reason, we could not connect using our cell phone as a hotspot, so we purchased a mobile hotspot from Walmart and used straight talk. It worked fine for awhile, but we got so sick of paying $25 additional a month for only 2 gigs of data when get nearly 50 with our wireless plan. Anyway, I tried every tech support forum, video, whatever out there and no one could tell us why we couldn't connect using our cell hotspot. Finally, out of frustration, I started turning things off or changing settings and finally figured out how to make it work and not only work, but work well.If anyone has a problem using their cell as a hotspot, here is what you need to do:1. go to your command prompt, run it as an administrator.2. type in this command: netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled3. hit enter and you should get an OK message.4. type in this command: netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled5. tap enter (get the OK message)6. type in this command: netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled7. tap enter/OK message!8. now make certain everything worked as it should, so type in: netsh int tcp show global9. tap enter and it should show a list of different things. pretty much everything except one should be disabled.10. restart your computer (there is still more to come tho!)11. go to the device manager and find the network device.12. under properties, go to the advanced tab and under bandwidth, change it to 20 ghz.13. under the same tab, go to Enable Adaptivity and disable it.Before doing any of this though, make certain you are using the latest drivers.This really is an awesome product!
