- Simple to install on Windows 7, just plug it in the USB, install the drivers and it will work.
- Vastly more powerful than the internal wifi antenna in the laptop. While it picks up 3/5 signal from the living room to the router in the bedroom, with the antenna it picks up 5/5.
- The antenna is detachable, so you can install a bigger one if needed, or even a longer USB cable if you want to install the receiver in a further place from the computer to pick the best signal.
- The driver CD isn't well recorded, the laptop had problem reading it.
Bought it for my father's laptop because the wifi router is in the bedroom and he uses the computer in the living room. The house has lots of walls and it blocks a lot of the signal.
I didn't think at first that this receiver would work so well, but yes, it does.
If you are in a place with walls that block wifi, or that you have to be far from the antenna, this receiver does a great job of boosting the signal reception.
