Excellent speed at a great price in a tough environment I have a mini-desktop I built to put next to my TV in the living room downstairs. My wireless router, dual-band and supports 802.11n, is upstairs and I consistently see peak speeds of ~58 mbps for Internet connections, either via a wired NIC or a wireless NIC that is placed close to the router.I was using another Wireless-N dual band USB adapter for the mini-desktop in the living room, but only seeing max download speeds of 22 mbps. I figured that this was due to the fact that I live in a newer townhouse with steel vertical and horizontal supports disrupting the signal. But I got tired of the slower speeds and decided to try this Netis USB adapter and WOW!!!!On the 5GHz band, I'm getting about 98% max throughput (about 57 mbps) and better than twice what I was getting before. I originally bought this because the reviews were good. My computer is a Windows 7 x64 machine running an old AMD dual-core processor with 4GB RAM and a small SSD. Don't need anything more for streaming and playing DVDs or perusing the Internet occasionally.BTW, I am not a shill for this product. I bought it thinking I might get a little improvement in wireless speeds but was more than pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure how great the long range throughput would be, but the short range, through walls throughput is excellent. Just remember that you need a dual-band router to really help. 5Should not be on Prime... does not fit a USB connection. Should not be on Prime... does not fit a USB connection.I am out the money that I paid for this.It is a manufacturing error... there is no way to tell if the modem works because it can not fit a USB 2 nor USB 3 connection.It's also not really "mini"... it's larger than what one would expect a mini wireless device to be.See from the photos... it can not plug into a USB port. 1Inexpensive and works on both Mac and PC I moved to an older historic building (circa 1853) with very thick brick/masonry/lath and plaster interior walls. The building has a "whole building" WiFi setup with routers on the first and 4th floors. My condo is on the second floor, immediately up the stairs from the first floor router and with pretty good line of sight placement for the WiFi signals. In fact in the front portion of my unit the signal is great. Unfortunately, I work from home and my office is in the rear of my unit - farthest from the router. As a result, I was getting very weak signals on both my Mac desktop and my work Windows laptop. I had an extender/adapter put in my front living room to boost the signal, but it didn't completely solve the problem. So after doing some research I tried one of these for my Mac (it plugs directly into the computer), did the setup (pretty straightforward) and was very pleased with the results. My reception and signal strength is now "very good" - not excellent, but certainly good enough to make it painless to use my Mac. It worked so well that I bought one for my work (Windows) computer as well. However, the installation software comes on a CD and my Windows laptop doesn't have a CD/DVD player!! So, after some head scratching, I put the CD in my Mac, copied the installation software to a USB drive, and put the USB drive into my laptop, and voila! it worked.Overall very satisfied, and the price was great and they even look nice. 5Recompiling drivers? Hoo boy... I have to say, I was real excited when I saw that this Netis wireless dongle was compatible with Linux. I had high hopes that it would work with an out of the box Ubuntu deb package. Upon getting the wireless dongle, I was surprised to discover that I had to compile the source for the drivers myself. OK, not my favorite thing to do, but I can do that. I ran into compilation errors on Ubuntu 15.04 due to the code using the __FILE__ and __LINE__ macros but using -Wall, which on my version of gcc was activating a warning that you shouldn't use the file and line macros. I replaced __FILE__ and __LINE__ with some literal values and that made it go away. The only problem was, the kernel module would get kicked out every time I upgraded the Linux kernel, causing issues. Fine. Whatever. Still not too painful to run the magic install.sh script and make the whole thing work.Then I upgraded to Ubuntu 15.10, and discovered a more serious error. The code had declared some kind of global buffer called file_path, which was now conflicting with a function signature pulled in by an included library. I had to go through and change all occurrances of file_path to file_path_buf. After that, I found that some android routine was using strnicmp which wasn't being found in the dependencies. I fixed that by writing custom code to change the strings to upper case. Now it works again, but this is kinda ridiculous. This is the sort of Linux user experience I heard legends about from older engineers, I didn't think I'd be "living the dream" like that.The hardware seems fine. The thing works once its drivers are built and installed. But it's a recurring support headache. If you run Linux, save yourself the trouble. 2Great performance on Windows 10 Highly recommended. I'm seeing 400+ Mbps upstream and downstream transfer rates with one of these adapters attached to a desktop machine running Windows 10. The adapter is about 40' from the access point with no line-of-sight between the two.Installation went smoothly. Following another review here, I downloaded and installed the Windows 10 drivers from the Netis website [...]*before* plugging in the adapter. The adapter was instantly recognized when plugged in and I was able to configure the password and set some parameters through the Netis app. Full access to the driver configuration only seems possible from the Advanced tab in the Windows 10 Devices app. From there, you can set band preference, for example, which most folks broadcasting the same SSID on 2.4 and 5 GHz will likely want to enable. 5Poor instructions, disconnects, but great reception **Issues with El Capitan** I use this with a Mac Pro, which has poor wifi built in. This antenna definitely boosts my reception. But it disconnects when the computer sleeps and is often very slow about reconnecting. The instructions were not clear, but the manufacturer was responsive, if not much clearer. **Update Jan 2016** With Mac OS El Capitan, my computer stopped waking from sleep, and after some testing, I narrowed it down to this antenna. I contacted tech support about a new driver, and in the meantime, had to remember to unplug the antenna before leaving the computer. Tech support is in China, with very limited English. They didn't have new software at the time, but sent it to me as soon as a beta was available. Had to uninstall the previous version to install the beta. Beta didn't work, and I'm unable to get the old software reinstated and functioning, and tech support just told me to Google it, as they can't Google in China. I now have NO functioning wifi basically and am quite unhappy. 2WF2190 is nice as it tells the signal strength This netis model No. WF2190 does not work on my late 2012 mac mini. I installed the driver for OSX on my El Capitan edition of OSX but no connection is detected. There is only a software wizard for Windows. There is no software wizard for Apple Mac OSX. I downloaded the install CD on netis webpage but it is the same as the included physical install CD included in the box with the netis model No. WF2190. There is only a driver for Apple OSX edition Yosemite . I plugged in the netis model No. WF2190 into my Windows 10 computer and the netis model No. WF2190 was detected no problem. I installed the set up wizard on the provided CD and Windows 10 is compatible with this netis model No. WF2190. The software included with this netis model No. WF2190 is nice as it tells the signal strength. I have only used this netis model No. WF2190 for a day as of writing this review. The download speed seems to be improved over my previous wireless N cisco usb adapter. I am using this netis model No. WF2190 with a belkin wireless N router. The belkin router is next door thru two walls and a division of space between my apartment and the house the belkin router is in. I think I am two walls and 50 feet away from the belkin router I access to get wireless internet. I know I would get even better reception with this netis model No. WF2190 if I was using it with a AC router instead of just an N router. I get about 900Kbit to 1Mbit a second with my wireless internet configuration. My signal strength is about 60% or so higher. I bought this netis model No. WF2190 to work on my Apple mac mini computer; but it is incompatible and has no software for Mac other than drivers for OSX edition Yosemite and below. I have El Capitan on my late 2012 mac mini. So this was a waste of money for me. But luckily this netis model No. WF2190 works on my windows 10 desktop PC. 3Failed So far so good - fast connection and like the small size.Update a month later. This now stops working quite often. I run the Troubleshoot Problem and 'reboot' it and it goes back to working for a few more hours. I'd return it but it was cheap so I'll keep messing with it for a while.Further update: Now that the window for returning it has closed it's hardly working at all. 1Overheat is a real issue! The adapter itself looks nice and work on my linux machine out-of-box. However, it overheat pretty soon and become unstable and disconnecting a lot. Worse, you can't just unplug and plug it back in, because it is still hot and will not connect or will only connect with a very low speed (open google take more then 10 second...). You need to wait for it to completely cool down before use it again. This is unacceptable. Unless you only plan to use it in a cold place (I live in Wisconsin and it still overheat after 1 hour of use), I wouldn't recommend this adapter. 1Netis WF2116 - Good for what it is, great for the $ I purchased this unit to use with a desktop PC that needed to access our corporate WiFi. This unit is as advertised, but really nothing impressive. For comparison testing I used my laptop's built in Intel 5300 AGN dual-band WLAN adapter. This external Netis WF2116 which is using a Realtek RTL8192CU chipset.Using inSSIDer 2.0, I am seeing my closest access point with the built in Intel 5300 at -45dB and with the Netis WF2116 it's at -55dB... so while the Netis adapter is working as expected, it's actually performing worse than the internal adapter (Intel 5300) on my seven year old laptop. To clarify, anything at or greater than -70dB is generally considered to be "voice quality" WiFi, meaning you can have clear uninterrupted calls using VoIP calling such as Skype or Facetime.My Windows 7 Pro 64-bit OS did not recognize the adapter by default. I used the included driver disc from Device Manager instead of installing the included software and it came right up no problem. My preference is to use the built in Windows WLAN management utility rather than add another piece of software that does the same thing and takes up more resources, etc. The entire "install" process took me about 90 seconds.Install Tips - Based on Windows 7 but should be more or less the same for Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10. Windows 8/8.1 or 10 might even recognize the device right away rendering this whole install procedure unnecessary.1 - Connect the Netis USB adapter to your computer. I recommend picking and sticking with a specific USB port so choose wisely.2 - Right-click on Computer and select Manage, this will open Computer Management3 - Under the left column menu, select Device Manager4 - Under "Other devices" you should see a new entry with a small yellow bang (exclamation point) on it called "802.11n WLAN Adapter"5 - Right-click on the 802.11n WLAN Adapter and select Update Driver Software...6 - Pop the included driver disc into your computer... if you don't have a disc drive (more common these days) then you may also download it from their wesbsite which as of the time of this writing = http://www.netis-systems.com/Suppory/de_details/id/1/de/87.html** To be honest you're typically better off downloading the driver since it should be the most current available... but if you don't have any connection to the Internet yet (likely why you've bought this adapter) then the disc method is also handy. Now back to the Device Manager menu...7 - Select Browse my computer for the driver software8 - Click Browse...9 - Select the disc drive on your computer, most likely "(D:)" or "DVD RW Drive" or something similar**The included disc shows up as "netis auto insal" if that helps you spot it...10 - Click Next11 - Windows should detect and install the driverNow look in your System Tray (typically the bottom right corner, near the clock) and you should be ready to join your friendly neighborhood WLAN.While not overly impressed with the capability of this antenna, it's most certainly worth the $12.99 I paid for it. 3
