            Comments about Amped Wireless Wireless 150N Compact USB Adapter:

            I got this because I have a Mac Mini and the internal air port's terrible. At first my computer was set up right next to the wifi and it was fine, but when I moved it 30 feet away, it started constantly dropping the internet, and it was maddening. After months of struggling to download anything and not being able to watch internet videos, I found this antenna. It was sort of difficult to get set up, I think it had some issues with my slightly older OS, but my friend who is better with computers took over for me and managed to get it working in about five minutes. With the antenna, my connection is back to being functional and it saved me the cost of a new computer.

              It's literally plug and play after you install software. Not problems, works great as advertised.

                  This device works perfectly. It took a little setup out of the box, I found it necessary to download the latest driver from the manufacturer's website, (simple) and it works great. I can see many more networks than before, probably 50% more, and I have full signal strength to my own router about 30 feet away through two walls. Very pleased with this purchase.
