    EDIMAX Technology EW-7811UAC reviews

    AC600 Wi-Fi Dual-Band High-Gain USB Adapter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Hardware, Poor Linux Software I downloaded the latest version of the Edimax Linux drivers. They compiled with a couple of non-fatal warnings. I could see various networks to connect to, but Network Manager refused to pass on the password for any location. This happened on two machines. Eventually, I found a third party site with more modern kernel support (https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux). These drivers compiled and worked without issue. Reception is indeed better than the typical wireless device. You see that in higher signal strength indicators, and in all the extra visible networks. Its too bad Edimax dropped the ball with software support. A shout out to Anand Babu Periasamy for the fixed drivers, and for the built in DKMS support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Ubuntu / Mint -- LINUX !!! I needed this to add 5GHz capability to an old laptop that I was using as a router. The big antenna on this adapter makes it 2-3 times faster and much more stable than my old means of connecting. For Linux, you need to get the driver package from the website, don't bother with the included disk. I used the latest version, I simply ran the install script in a terminal window, and it was up and running, that easy. The adapter unplugs from the base and can be plugged directly into a usb port if necessary, the antenna is hinged. The base is weighted and lets you move the adapter around for the best reception. Really can't come up with any negatives. It is hard to find a 5GHz USB Wifi adapter for Linux, and this one works very well. I'm sure the Windows and Mac support is as good.
