I had a tiny Edimax one before, and my internal card picked up 2 bar signal even when changing around to a massive high gain aerial and my tiny usb one got 5 bars.

Any feedback would be great as I've just gone for one. It's precisely because it's so small that I want one (otherwise was looking for a PCI network card)

ryouga, do you know what make your usb one is please?

kyshars, did you need to install any of the software or drivers that came with it or did it work with Windows out of the box?

If it's Ralink then its not going to be recognised as an Airport.... have to run the buggy ralink app all the time in the dock.

Cheers matey

I downloaded the usb driver from here

ralinktech.com/sup…s=1 (top link)

works fine with windows 7 64bit and windows xp

Doesn't anyone take any notice when posting deals about reports this was posted around a week ago and went red hot, I bought one but the disc didn't work so i had an issue getting the right drivers to install but when i did it worked fine good signal and strength

quite tempted to try one of these

I got one of these a few weeks ago and Im well chuffed with it.

just ordered...thanks

How much does £17p work out to?

Oops! corrected, thanks

Single antenna so unless you're able to do channel bonding you're only going to get 65 or 72 Mbps out of one of these.

Still a good price if you don't mind the lower speed and want a mini adapter.

This is what i need! Thanks OP!!

Just ordered two with a box of the Duracell AAs, nice deal, thanks.

NB this is the SAME as the Edimax model- just unbranded by the looks of things...

yes i run mine with wifi n works fine no problems so far

Just ordered!

Got a FREE Wireless-N router from Virgin Media when I threatened to leave so I hope this will work well in-place of the built-in WiFi on my old Laptop.

Good deal!

virgin router sucks... make sure you upgrade the firmware to DD-WRT

Got a D-link DIR-615......will it need upgrade?

Edit.... o.k. just been to DD-WRT web page.
'Mine ain't broke so I ain't fixing it'

cheers anyway

yep... dont touch it if it works... mine (same model) kept dropping out when the throughput went over 5Mbps. DD-WRT saved me from buying a new one. Grt piece of freeware!!

Mine seems to constantly drop the signal.
Instructions not very clear.

Reverting back to the inbuilt 54mbps card on lappy gives better results!
Should I be updating the driver?
