There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Therefore, while I have no doubt that this is a great wifi adaptor and solution if your system doesn't already have wifi, I would not recommend going out of your way to buy this if you're hoping to catch wireless signals further afield than what you'd normally expect with Wifi. Ultimately I ended up returning the product given it didn't meet my expectation.
After experiencing this problem I fully backed up my PC & did a clean install of Windows 10 as a test. The exact same issued still existed. I need a long range device as this PC is some distance from my router & through many brick walls.
The amazing thing is that when I use a tiny D-Link USB device it works perfectly & can transfer hundreds of GBs without issues. It also has a decent signal & transfers at around 100Mbs. The BosTrend maxed at around 52Mbs.
Why the BosTrend didn't perform as well is a total mystery. I gave up & will stay with the $25 USB D-Link thumb device.
The BosTrend like the Linksys is now thrown in a drawer & will sadly remain unused!!!
I do not recommend this product for Linux.
VERY DISSATISFIED AND DISSAPPIONTED

I've been very impressed with the general performance of this wireless adaptor. Installation was very easy and it hasn't given me any grief since I bought it (unlike the aforementioned competition).
My only complaint would be the blue LED on the device that flashes away like it's nobody's business. If the adapter is in your line of sight it can be really distracting and I can't see any option to change the behaviour of the flashing light. Luckily the extension lead that comes with the adapter gives you a lot of freedom with placement of the adapter.
I use this to connect to my 5Ghz wireless network and it's definitely the best adapter I've ever used for this purpose. Signal strength and speeds are better than what I've seen in the past.
A little FYI for people buying this: the adapter automatically installed by itself when I plugged it in to my Windows 10 PC. I would still recommend downloading the drivers from the official website (instructions provided with the adapter) as I got some strange behaviour out of the device before doing so.
I actually ordered this before i did the power line adapters and forgot about it, i didn't have any hope it would work better than them but curiosity got the better of me. Thank god it did!
I plugged it in then downloaded the drivers, loaded up a speed test to confirm to myself it wouldn't work any better and proceeded to stare at the results in disbelief. Somehow this little usb adapters can get full speed from my connection on the 3rd floor from a bt home hub (67 mbps) where as my phone struggles to get get above 3 or even sustain a stable connection.
After restarting I checked the WiFi signal that was nearly full bars and other adaptors had only got upto 1 bar on 5ghz so their claim to have long range is right and also speed is twice as fast so all I can say is money well spent.
I do suggest to use USB 2.0 to plug into on PC though as 3.0 kept on making WiFi turn on and off so it wasn't very stable even though the insert is blue.
It is a 3Ghz/5Ghz dual band, dual antenna wifi module (an actual USB stick) which sits in a nice mount.
There is a blue light which flashes when data is sent and received.
My connection, about 5m and two walls away is about 3/5 in 3 Ghz. But with a wifi 5G extender within 1m I actually get 5/5 stars for reception and a reported 850 Mps. Not quite the 1200 stated, but still more than enought to stream 4K videos on Netflix and Amazon prime.
Drivers installed automatically from the web. All good and easy
I sent an email at about 9pm. and while I was sleeping that night the people in China were working on my problem and a set of instructions was ready for me the following morning. I still couldn't make it work and got the same level of service again. I sorted it out eventually with the second lot of instructions and found that computer No.2 needed the password for the router and then that worked like a dream.
