Overheated and quit working after 2 days!
Reviewed in the United States on April 18, 2019
UPDATE: After less than 48 hours, this POS has overheated and been malfunctioning. I have tried all I can think of to make it work but it just keeps turning itself off. It's remarkable hot, so maybe the turning itself off is a safetly feature. Whatever it is, it's not working as advertised.
I like this wifi adapter. It's really fast. But after reading another reviewer say that you don't need to download the driver if you have Windows 10, I decided to just Plug and Play it. It worked but incredibly slowly. Like 1.2 Mbps slow. To the point I was ready to send it back. But then I decided to unplug it and use the CD that came with it to download the drivers (like the instructions tell you to do for Windows 7). Once I did that and plugged it back in, I was getting very nice speeds 85 Mbps (my wifi router is only putting out 111 Mbps and my PC is fairly far away with several walls between, so 85 Mbps is great). So all you Windows 10 users, if you find it isn't that fast when you Plug and Play, I recommend you go ahead and load the drivers from the CD.
Also of note, the seller provides an offer of a free USB thumb drive if you fill out a form and leave a review here.
