  Worked fine.. for a while.

| | See all Edzgames's reviews (57)

Had this free with a new Dell computer for work.
At first it worked fine, but if you tend to have to move the USB stick around alot, I would not recommend this one.

Because the body of the USB Stick is so long, it puts alot of weight on the actual USB part to plug in to your computer. This means it will begin to wobble over time, and then eventually just not work.

Its not the best design, its also a little fat around the edges, so if your plugging in alot of USB's next to each other on your computer, this may not fit.
It totally depends on how much spacing there is between the USB ports you want to put it in.

Because its so cheap, its worth the buy, but beware of the factors I have listed above.

  good when it works

i found it very difficult to get it to connect to my bt home hub in the first place and then every now and again, it decides that it does not like my router and connects to bt openzone. I have to fiddle around with it a lot before it works again, but once it is connected it is really fast.

Fine when it works but it constantly loses the signal and I have had to reconnect my wireless router via ethernet cable to ensure any reliable prolonged usage. Installs and sets up no problem so I suppose it has that in its favour. I could not recommend this product to anyone at all.

I have bought several of these for friends and family and i personally use 2 of them , i have never had any problems with any of them , although the software with them is a bit basic but what do you expect for the price??
I will keep using and recommending these!!
(If you have problems check your router is actually working!!)

  Cheap and nasty!

I've had one and a friend of mine also bought one and both of us have had no end of trouble. Avoid if possible, spend a little more on a better quality adapter, it will be worth it in the long run. Definitely false economy.

  Avoid!

I've not had the weak signal problems like others have been complaining about but the software stops working every couple of weeks and needs to be reinstalled about ten times before it starts working again, when you check to see if it works between each installation it can take a long time and it's very frustrating.
The most unreliable product I have ever had the misfortune to own.

  Rubbish, you've been warned

This is a truly terrible piece of equipment, I never get a good signal with it even when I'm a few feet away from the router. I also have a xbox360 wirless adapter which is as far as away from the router as it could possibly be in my house and it picks up a full signal so it has nothing to do with a bad router. I originally bought this for a student house and it worked ok because the walls were paper thin. As one reviewer has already pointed out, unless you live in a paper house do not buy!!!!

Stay away from this item as it is no good whatsoever. I have had this for 3 months and never been been able to pick up a good signal, always showing as LOW or VERY LOW and i am only in the room next door!
