  • Windows 10 install details
    Reviewed by HappyBeekeeper - December 1, 2019

    I'm very happy with this. The internal wifi card in my laptop died and, therefore, I had no ability to connect to the internet. The laptop also does not have a CD drive... This dongle is NOT plug and play - plugging it into the port, even with a reboot, did nothing. The unit comes with an install CD, which I couldn't use - but the instructions also had the website to download the executable install program. I used another laptop to download the program onto a thumb drive, and then inserted that into the intended laptop; unzipped the file and ran the .exe program. Then I inserted the netgear dongle and it was instantly recongnized. Works great.

  • Good for Laptop Upgrade
    Verified BuyerReviewed by KenFromVegas - May 8, 2020

    Bought this to upgrade my wife's laptop from 802.11n to 802.11ac (WIFI 5). Works well and small size means she can just leave it in the USB port all the time. An adapter with a larger antenna might provide more range, but it would be more awkward to have sticking out of the laptop. Small blue LED on device shows when data is being transferred. Easy to install, but if you're updating a computer with a built adapter you need to disable the old adapter (Netgear's instructions do no include this step). In Windows 10 go to Network Settings, bring up the page that shows the adapters. Right click on the old adapter and choose Disable.

  • Great upgrade for older laptop!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Bennie - September 4, 2020

    I upgraded an older, but very expensive, Thinkpad X220 with a new SSD, Windows 10, and a new keyboard. All worked well except for WiFi...Windows 10 did not work properly with the original internal WiFi card. No direct replacement card is available for this machine, so we shopped for an external WiFi device. This tiny USB adapter works perfectly and permits very fast up- and down-load speed. The range is amazing, and I don't know how they do that! This was much easier than trying to do surgery on the internal card and BIOS. It is small and runs cool and fast. Now I have a "new" laptop.
