Think this is the cheapest we have seen this.
You'll need to use code 3JCCA2QK

If you're current device doesn't support 5Ghz this could be a good solution to give you a boost with your Wi-fi speed. Some older devices could benefit from one, just double check your current wifi card beforehand though. Reviews looks pretty strong and for £4.99 Prime / £8.98 I think it's more than reasonable.

Supports Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000, Mac os X 10.4-10.11.4 and 10.12.1(No drivers required for Windows 10)

Shame code doesn't work with the warehouse ones (would be 50p cheaper). I got two of these when they were on offer at £5.99, which they have been quite a few times before though I think this could be cheapest. Would get another though I don't need more than two.

Of the two I got one works really well but the other one, while ok, seems to get quite a few disconnects and just doesn't seem to perform as well. The odd thing is the one that doesn't work that great is literally about a metre from the router where as the other one is about a room and a half away. Wonder if too much signal can be a problem, though never heard of that before? Maybe I should try unscrewing the antenna on the close one....

So it should be expired because you can't enter a Code?
Thanks OP, just purchased one, I have Powerline adapters which aren't great since I have moved house so I would be interested to see how this compares.
Don't understand why so many people are moaning, you're getting a £13.99 item for £4.99. Thanks OP, ordered, coming tomorrow.
Would this work with a Acer C720 Chromebook?

Leave antennae connected and swap the adaptors between locations to assist in identifying any individual device-specific issue... then consider removing antenna on nearest adaptor to router.
Is this plug and play, or dependent on the drivers on pc?
These are so amazing. At this price, the best thing since sliced bread.

Completely plug and play. I think it just uses drivers already on the device or in Windows itself. Anyway, 30 seconds after you plug it in, you're good to go.
Hi. I'm not a tech savvy. Can anyone tell me if this device can connect wifi and become a hotspot simultaneously?
Nice one OP - ordered and heat added

What are you trying to do because connecting to a wifi network and becoming a hotspot (a wifi access point) simultaneously makes no sense. It's like asking can you charge a laptop and use that laptop to power the national grid simultaneously. Maybe you're wanting to extend your wifi network to cover more of a building or something, in which case there are better options.

Some of the one star reviews had issues with both Mac and Linux.

Sounds an unusual combination (set top box / no ethernet / no integral wifi) which implies no integral drivers for whatever OS the box uses, unless you can load drivers to the box, which may be equally unusual.

Total unknown. What did the interweb say? It's worth a punt, though devices normally have proprietary peripherals.

Plug and play generally refers to using things like this on computers, it is in fact a well known computing standard introduced way back in the days of Windows 95. Due to the proprietary OS most set top boxes run you can't reasonably expect them to just work with any random USB wifi dongle. I know many of the humax boxes such as their freesat and possibly freeview PVRs can be upgraded with a wifi dongle but even then it has to be a humax branded one or one of a small pool of compatible adaptors.

Not saying it won't work 100% but you will be VERY lucky if it does....
perfect..just ordered. thanks a lot!
Thanks, ordered. I was looking for similar products.
Does this work with PS4 or doi you need to use with software?
I ordered this a while ago and I actually had some issues with it disconnecting a bunch on windows 10, and freezing my computer up when windows tried to reconnect to the internet.

Out of interest, how does the subject box usually connect to internet if no integral ethernet of wifi? Bluetooth?
