- Good backup for work wifi- June 19, 2016
I work at a university with multiple buildings and occasional wifi issues. My new HP Spectre, like many of the current ultrabooks, lacks an ethernet jack, so this adapter does the trick. It also helps to have the gigabit speed when doing streaming video conferencing--my boss does this with the exact same adapter. Some reviewers noted that they had to update the driver, and I guess this is true--my Win10+HP combo did the upgrade so fast I didn't even know that the driver fix was going on. I liked the aluminum finish and sturdier build of this one -vs- the Insignia, and while it was a few dollars more, it is a tax write-off anyway.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- So far has not met manufacturers specs.- March 7, 2015
I am waiting for a follow-up response from manufacturer's customer support. When installing according to instructions provided it has not reached but about 1/5 the promised speed. Manufacturer's customer support responded promptly to my request for assistance but when I told them the steps I have taken and asking for more assistance I have not had additional response. I am using this item with a laptop running Windows 8.1 and a USB 3.0 which should give me a gig connection but so far that has not happened. I am still hopeful that the support staff will provide me with more information that will allow me the speed they claim.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Nice Replacement- June 15, 2015
The wired internet connection to my laptop kept dropping because the jack was loose. I had two options; buy a USB connector or buy a new computer. I chose the former. Installation was a slight pain since the provided CD actually recommends you download the driver from the companies website. (How do you download a driver when you don't have the internet connection in the first place? That is why I bough the USB connector!) Solved the problem and I have solid connections to the internet. Device has a nice shell and seems to be a solid. I would have no problem packing it and taking it with me.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
