Working on Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS After almost giving up and returning this, I found paspro/rtl8812au on github (just search for it) with working drivers for kernel 4.13! Supposedly this driver also works up to kernel 4.15. The instructions are super-easy.Seems to be full speed on 5GHz 802.11n. I'm just going across my living room, so I can't speak much to range.Note that when installing, you may have to remove the version number from the folder because the install script is looking for rtl8812au. So extract the ZIP file, then change rtl8812au-5.1.5 to rtl8812au before running dkms install script.lsusb lists this device as "0bda:a811 Realtek Semiconductor Corp."That's Realtek's "demo board" ID instead of a custom manufactured one, which means any driver for this chipset should recognize the generic ID and work. 5Good performance for the price Needed a NIC upgrade for my older Dell Inspiron 15R (Dell Wireless 1705 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 gHz). My Internet service is Comcast 150 mbps: laptop speed was down to 15 mbps, or less. My desktop (TP-Link 802.11 a/c running 180mbps on 5 gHz).Installed StarTech USB 2.0 AC600 Dual Band Mini NIC (802.11 b/g/ac) in my Dell Inspiron laptop and speed increased from 15 mbps (2.4 ghz band) to 180 mbps (5 ghz band)...same as desktop TP-Link dual antennae PCI-e NIC.Only negative for the StarTech USB NIC is the size. The StarTech USB NIC protrudes 2 cm when inserted in the USB port compared to the 1 cm for most USB transceivers for a mouse.I would not recommend leaving the StarTech USB NIC installed while transporting a laptop in a backpack. 4Inexpensive, Capable Desktop Wireless Network Adapter This wireless network adapter provides perfectly functional connection from a homebrew desktop computer to my IEEE 802.11-n wireless network, and prevents me from having to string Ethernet cables from my router to the computer, a major "plus".Windows 7 required no StarTech software drivers; drivers available from Microsoft were sufficient. Signal strength from my relatively old D-Link DIR-655 router, located three walls and about 30 feet from the desktop machine (and on the same residential floor), shows about 4-1/2 "bars" on the Windows 7 built-in wireless network signal strength indicator. The same Microsoft signal monitor shows connection "speed" of about 130 MB/s - at least as good as that from a moderately high-end Dell laptop when used in the same location. With standard PCI card configuration and adequate Microsoft software drivers, installation was a non-event - plug in and secure the network adapter card, turn on the desktop, wait for Windows 7 to install drivers, and go.Like all desktop wireless network adapters without coaxial cable connected to antennas located away from the computer, this network adapter has less received signal strength than laptops with optimally located built-in antennas in the top lid. The antennas furnished with the StarTech adapter are located too close to, are shielded by, and suffer multipath signal degradation from, the desktop case. A separate antenna, located above the desktop case and oriented for maximum router signal, would be superior, despite losses in coax connecting that antenna to the adapter card itself.Despite these technical limitations, inherent in all desktop wireless network cards having card-mounted antennas, the StarTech wireless network card provides good performance at low cost, and minimal installation effort. 5Med student breaks computer, wireless doesn't work, USB saves life I am a medical student who also happens to be a big idiot because I dropped my mac laptop at the hospital. There was internal damage to the network card inside my mac. Geek Squad said it would cost several hundred dollars (and three weeks) to have this component fixed. Either that or I would need a new computer. That's ridiculous. I don't have several hundred dollars, and I don't have three weeks. And I can't afford a new computer. I need my computer many hours each day, and I need internet.I really don't know s*** about computers. But as I was planning on trying to find the correct internal network card online as well as the tiny screwdriver to open my computer up, I came across this little USB thing. I bought it out of desperation. Arrived in 24 hours. I found the network driver to install the product online because my mac doesn't have a CD drive. Installed the driver, plugged in the USB, entered into the program the password on my Wifi box at home, and boom. Internet. Not only that, but I feel like it's working faster (?!) than previously.You guys make a fantastic product. Thank you for saving me the 1,700 dollars it would have cost me to replace this computer. I can now get back to studying for boards. I love you. 5Installed with ease, performs like no other. It works great, gets the most out of your network speed available. I strongly recommend this product if you're planning on bringing your desktop to anywhere with WiFi available or find yourself in a situation where a wired connection is not an option.*note*If you're afraid it is not working because the green light does not turn on immediately after installing it do not worry! AFTER you install the driver it'll turn on. 5Worked in Windows 10 right out of the box! Worked in Windows 10 right out of the box! I did not need to download any drivers from Startech or use the supplied mini-cd that had the drivers on it. It was totally plug and play for me. I literally took it out of the box and plugged it in and Windows 10 installed its driver and I was up and running in seconds. I have Verizon Fios 50/50 and I did the speedtest.net test and got 56/68 with this little adapter. Some background. I have a Samsung laptop that had the built-in internal Wi-Fi adapter go bad. I went into the bios and disabled the onboard Wi-Fi adapter and plugged the StarTech USB adapter in its place. The speed I am now getting is nearly double what the onboard adapter was capable of providing. I believe my onboard adapter was only a G standard compared to this new N version in the StarTech. Not sure if this has a lot to do with it or not, but I am getting maximum bandwidth from this little dongle. My laptop has only USB 2.0 which is plenty fast enough for this device. If you have a newer machine with USB 3.0, you might want to consider the AC version of this device unless your onboard Wi-Fi is already at that speed. I am totally impressed with the ease of installation and speed of this little adapter. If you upgraded to Windows 10 it should work out of the box, but I can't verify this since I did a clean install of Windows 10 on a new Samsung EVO SSD that I also put in the same laptop a week ago. Your results may very, but at a minimum, if it doesn't work out of the box like mine did, just install the drivers from StarTech.com under the "support" tab for this device and you will be fine. 5Time for open chipset declaration! One reviewer listed the chipset in this device as RTL 8192, which for a linux user is right on.I found after the cmd. (as root) " lspci -nnv | less " to my surprise the details were of a Ralink 5392 chipset.While an easy fix is available in the .deb RT 5390 file, and I happen to like Ralink chipsets, theproducers of these devices could easily list the chipset in the product description.The chipset drives ALL aspects of the device, and when vending a pci-e (x1) product that standard of revelationin product descriptions needs to be the norm, not the exception. 3Great USB Wireless adapter Very easy setup once I was able to get the drivers loaded. The Disc that came with the drives was defective. on the positive side was able to see tech support was very responsive, and directed me to a link where i could download the files needed in a zipped file. working perfectly. The interface to see wireless networks available to load the password and save profiles is much better than the one I had previously used (netgear). and so much smaller, I don't worry any more about it getting hit and breaking the connector on it or the computer. 5RTL8192EU device in Linux, instructions here to get working! Smallest 300mbps wifi adapter I could fine & works as expected. Running Linux, it was hard to get working, though. The drivers on the StarTech.com site are very out of date for Linux. The device is a RTL8192EU & I had to find the deb package here: https://forum.ubuntu-nl.org/index.php?topic=86081.msg930664#msg930664 -- It didn't work with the latest gcc, though, because a warning gets marked as an error. I had to repackage the deb by adding -Wno-error=time-date to the Makefile inside. Anyway, I did all this already I uploaded the new driver here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bza9ecEdICHGSjZMUWtmUHM2em8/view?usp=sharing it will work with DKMS too, so no need to recompile every kernel update. 5Works fine on a Mac, but with a few qualifications. Looks like it works well on my Mac, a mid-2011 iMac with Sierra 10.12.5. Software downloaded and installed easily. Plugged in the device and it and the Apple Airport wifi were recognized immediately. Wifi connected with no problem. I use Little Snitch firewall/monitor and the seem to coexist just fine.My Mac's internal wifi card has been suspect for several years. After a few hours or minutes, it would claim to be connected at full strength but there was no network access. Had to turn wifi off/on to recover. No software or firmware fixes that I could find would solve the problem, and there were no problems with other devices. So far, this device has stayed connected. It supports the newer "ac" standard (Mac was b/g/n) could potentially be faster, but I'm on satellite which is the limiting factor. I immediately noticed that web pages start to load faster, and unexpected surprise. Measured download speed hasn't changed. Perhaps my internal wifi card was ailing worse than I realized.Some caveats:- Signal reception is good, but less than the original. This is as expected given the tiny size of the device. If you need range, consider one that comes with an external antenna. (This one does not, contrary to one posting that I saw for it).- The negotiated data rate is about half what an adjacent iPad shows and slightly less than an iPhone at the same location. I expect that this is partially a function of the antenna size and resulting signal quality.- This uses its own wifi control thingy, not the MacOSX control. It is a bit simplistic, so there could be a feature that you might miss.- As with all third party devices and software, there is always a potential for issues with on-going support and update timeliness. 5
