nice price heat added
Was looking for something like this for my old tower system, thanks.
I MADE THIS TO THE HOTT LIST
Hoping this item from a quality manufacturer will work a little better than the dirt cheap version I tried from eBay
In what way does this differ from the Dynamode nano adapter available @ £5.98 via Amazon marketplace?
There appears to be a lot of relabeling and repricing of a generic basic product. As the dynamode works briliantly on XP and RPi voted cold.

same here mate had two from ebay at a fiver each neither worked!
I have the Edimax nano, and it worked like a dream on Vista (which was a surprise), but after an upgrade to Win 7, it has never worked. It functions as far as lighting up as though connected, but it has never done the job fully and tech support just kept saying to reinstall the drivers which did nothing... 8 or 9 times...

Does this one work on Win 7 do we know? And with the upcoming Win 8 is it worth the risk (i know its only a tenner, but no point wasting my time twice) just to find the same issue again?

Cheers all!
tp-link are a good manufacturer have been using there stuff for years here is a bit more info on the uk website TL-WN725NDownload for TL-WN725N V1 looks like there's a new driver you would be best to install for it TL-WN725N DRIVER 15.05.2012

Couldn't get mine to work on Vista 64bit despite installing it many times
OK...this is a question for computer literate people!!!!!!
My internal laptop wifi will "only" work up to 20 Mbps, whilst I have a 50 Mbps connection from Virgin (soon to be upgraded to 120Mps). Whilst I get 50 Mbps when connected with an ethernet cable, would this dongle allow me to get a higher wifi connection?
...plus I have Windows 7 Home Premium installed....

Yes.
Thank goodness you clarified James. I was going to tell you but then I realised I don't know the 1st thing about it, being 1 of the computer illiterate people!!!!!!
Would this improve speeds if used on a PS3?

Hot as my Laptop is old and only has b/g receiver inbuilt and my router is N+

My PS3 is the old shape 40GB and want to improve gaming over wifi.
Thanks for the replys!

these are the quoted specs for the Signal Rate
11b: Up to 11Mbps (dynamic)
11g: Up to 54Mbps (dynamic)
11n: Up to 150Mbps (dynamic)

if your wireless router is "N" and broadcasting 150 Mbs + you would probably average 75-110 Mbs
would this be compatible with ONKYO TX-NR509?
brianzion

tp-link are a good manufacturer


Are they?

They describe themselves as a global provider. Basically a brand. This is just a generic product. tP-Link are charging a premium over Dynamode. Nobody has yet answered the question of why this is better (or different). So why pay 40% over the odds?

Meanwhile voting this hot seems kinda stupid. Or is it me?

Does anyone know if this is compatible with any of the Onkyo Network AV receivers?

The official Onkyo dongle is £50 and I know that an alternative is the TP-Link TL-WN722N which shares the same Atheros AR9002U chipset as the Onkyo, however this nano one also seems to run an Atheros chipset - but cant seem to find which one.. was wondering if it was compatible..
gonna try this on my JoyTAB as i has wireless but only G - has anyone esle plugged it into an android tablet, with any sucess

couldnt find it on this site
wikidevi.com/wik…F-1
Just spoke to TP-Link who advised me the Chipset was the Realtek RTL8188CUS so in answer to Squadonline's question - No it wouldn't work.. so for now the TP-LINK TL-WN722N is the only cheapest option, unfortunately it's way bigger than this one.

Other Onkyo compatible alternatives are;

Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
Sony UWA-BR100
Netgear WNDA3200
Netgear WNDA3100

Still voted HOT though because it's pretty cheap.

you can say this about a lot of manufacturers. its been voted hot from me because the price has come down free p&p and because i own and use tplink products and have had no problems setting them up and using. but its down to personal choice
Try searching under the chipset details.. came up with this list;

will this work on an old phat 20gb PS3?



Most likely no, you'd need to connect to a laptop and use crossover cables etc
I have a Sony Bravia Tv and it has internet capabilities and can Skype etc. Will this allow it to pic up the wireless signal sent from my router to the tv?

In a word. No.

You have the same problem as me trying to get one to work on my Onkyo. The Sony Bravia's only connect to the official Sony wireless dongle (Sony UWABR100) or dongles using the same Atheros chipset as the proprietry Onkyo one. Your best bet would be to use the TP-LINK TL-WN722N with has the same Atheros chip. Widely available on the net, best source is either Amazon or ebay.

This is getting very silly. I keep asking what has this got that the excellent Dynamode hasn't. Its the same chipset. Just 40% more expensive. And you stil vote it HOT?

No.

If your Sony has a wire network (Ethernet RJ45) socket, then there are many 'universal' wireless adaptors that you could use.
Ive got a BT broadband hub 3. It only has one gigabit port on the back. Anyone knows for sure what speeds to expect between one of these and the bt hub
the hub is 140– 150Mbps wireless n you should average 75–100 Mbps mine used to broadcast 144 Mbps from the hub. have a look at the hub manager in a web browser http://192.168.1.254 on you pc for the hub is shows you the stats
