      I bought this to use with an older desktop(Gateway 420GR) running WinXP SP3. It's old engough that it doesn't even have USB 2.0! My desktop is setup on the far side of our new house, and the signal has to travel not only distance but through several walls & past other obstacles (fridge, water heater, etc).
      Setup could not have been easier. The signal strength is *very* stable \ consistent. While it doesn't connect @ 300 Mbps, it is because of the slower speed of the provider here on the border between "country" and "small town". It connects just as fast as my brand new work provided laptop.
      If my home network was capable of 300Mbps and I *needed* 300 Mpbs, I might be a little disappointed and might consider rating 4 \ 4.5, but this works every bit as well as other reviews I read indicated it would.
      Given the bargain price, this is a steal of a deal. I couldn't be happier with this product!

      This adapter has the power to give excellent reception with our cable modem (which is at the other end of the house) when it is connected. But it wants to lose it's connection from time to time. Especially in the morning when I first turn on my computer. It also seems to interfere with my wireless mouse and keyboard. It does get more reliable as the day goes on. I can't figure out why but it does. The problem is not unbearable just a nuisance.

      This adapter receives a weak signal pretty well. The download speed is pretty slow but that may be the wi-fi source. All in all, a nice adapter for the price.

          Could use a longer USB cable. I have already reccommended this to friends with the same problem.

                  Good signal strength, and straightforward, easy-peasy install using the supplied mini-CD (which my vertical drive had a problem holding onto!) The only problem I've had with it is that it will drop the connection, and not automatically restore it. I have to kill the app and restart it before the connection is restored. Oh well, the price was sure good.

                    These will be used in school classrooms for a building-wide wireless network. During testing, I was picking-up networks I had never seen before at that location, including router reception with 7dBM antennas. Will be used exclusively for .11n network with their good hook-up speed.

                        I have a computing station in a small outbuilding about 80 feet from my wireless router, which is inside my main house. This wireless adapter works great, even at that distance and through my house's concrete block walls and the walls of the outbuilding. I have tried the Netgear products, I strongly recommend staying away from their products. Their software is junk and so is their hardware. The TP-Link is rock solid and their drivers are really good too. Strongly recommend this product. Also, the dual antenna is key to its strong performance. True diversity is the key!

                        Comments about TP-Link TL-WN822N 300Mbps High Gain Wireless USB Adapter:

                        This adapter was able to receive twice as many wireless access points than I even knew were in my neighborhood. It has very long range functionality. It is also very fast at 300 Mbs. I've tried others but I recommend this product.
