    Pros: it works as described. i have a 64bit win7 premium machine and the driver loaded up fine. had no problems connecting it to the at&t uverse gateway. much better than the 2wire adapters at&t gives you.
    Cons: none so far
    plug and play would have been nice but the driver was about as simple as it gets.

    Pros: good quality signal
    Cons: WILL NOT WORK WITH XP SERVICE PACK 1!
    I was restory a 2003 laptop for my mom to use for internet, and this will install fine in sevice pack one, but will not get a signal. upgrade your sevice pack and it works flawlessly

    Pros: Works great. My wireless router is only one room away so I can't judge on distance for strength of signal, but for my use the device I receive great strength of signal and reliable connection for internet browsing and gaming needs.
    Cons: None

    Pros: signal strength

    This has been the best USB wireless adapter I've used thus far. I've used D-Link, Hawking Tech., and Linksys in the past and this is the coolest running adapter of the models I've tried. It also gets a good-excellent signal in areas where my girlfriends built in notebook wireless, my Hawking USB, and my Linksys PC card get none-low signals. Btw the signal is coming from a verizon B/G router/modem on the first floor.
    Cons: None as of yet.

    Pros: Works out of the box with my laptop that has Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat installed. No need to install any additional drivers at all.
    The output from 'lsusb' for this device is
    Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0cf3:9271 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR9271 802.11n
    and it uses the ath9k wireless driver.
    Cons: It sticks out about 2.5 inches and the antenna is perhaps in the way, depending where on your laptop the usb ports are. However, it comes with an extension USB cable so one can simply put is where it is less in the way.

    Pros: Great price, strong signal, usb extenstion, no drops so far,
    Cons: A bit bulky compared to other usb adapters.
    Great price, strong signal, usb extenstion, no drops so far, A bit bulky compared to other usb adapters. Great adapter. Network transfers improved considerably with this adapter. Streaming 1080p content throughout the house with no problems. I haven't experience any drops yet.
    The 3' extension that comes with the package is absolutely necessary. Because of the size of the adapter it would be impossible to just plug directly into the back of my pc. It's pretty long and wide.
    Would definitely recommend.

    Pros: Replaced an old Linksys wmp54g where I couldn't find a stable W7 64 driver. The tp-link is fully Windows 7 64bit compatible. Install went smooth.
    Cons: I'm about 40 feet from my router, 2 walls in between the router and adapter. W7 shows "excellent" signal strength. W7 reports 62mbps connection speed. Speedtest.net measures my comcast 20m connection at 23mbps on a laptop right next to the router. However, On my desktop (where the TP-Link adapter is installed) Speedtest.net shows only 3 mbps down and 3mbps up. Not sure why I'm not getting full speed.

    Pros: Quick installation and connection to my new wireless n network. Never crashes. I own 3 of these now because they are all that and a bag of chips too. They even come with high quality usb2.0 extension cables so you dont have to attach them directly to your device.
    Cons: The only con, in this case, is that there are other wirelessN adapters on the market that people unfortunately will waste their money on even after being advised that this one really is just that darn good.

    Pros: External antenna. Windows7 x64 found the driver automatically. It installed version 2.0.0.32 for a Atheros AR9271.
    Cons: It connected to my network quickly, but then the adapter kept turning its radio off or something. The bright green LED on it kept flashing, but it wouldn't find any wireless networks. I had to reseat it to make it work again.
    I went to http://www.tp-link.com/support/download.asp?a=1&m=TL-WN722N and
    I got TL-WN722N_100629.zip
    I pointed Device Manager at:
    \TL-WN722N\Driver Files\Windows 7 64bit and it said the driver is up to date.
    So I uninstalled the driver, reseated it, and pointed it to the same extracted ZIP file folder. It found the drivers for "TP-LINK 150Mbps Wireless Lite N Adapter" still with version 2.0.0.32
    Now it's been staying online for 2 days, where before it wouldn't last 8 hours.

    Pros: Excellent connectivity, even at 150Mbps. It is paired up with my Asus RT-n16 router and performs like a champ. Picks up minimal floor noise. I appreciate the fact that they included the usb cable as well as the high gain external antenna.
    Cons: Occasionally, it is not detected by my desktop computer when I start it up. Unplugging and replugging it into my computer solves this problem. I have a suspicion that it is not the products fault but due to the usb cable's connection.

Don't use a usb extension cable longer than 6Feet max or latency will be an issue due to the deteriorating signal quality over a longer cable.

    Pros: Was easy to install on Win7 64-bit. Great connection speeds no dropout so far. Played COD: Black Ops online and it worked great no connection problems so far.
    Cons: A bit large but honestly I'll never see the thing plugged into the back of my PC. If you don't have much rear clearance on your PC I could see it being an issue but it gives great connection status because of large high gain antenna.

    Pros: Works fine now... but only after you get it to work.
    Cons: Took some time to get the adapter to communicate with my wireless router.
    Works fine now... but only after you get it to work. Took some time to get the adapter to communicate with my wireless router. I purchased this adapter for my desktop computer. Installation using the CD was quick, but to get the wireless signal connected to the router required a bit more work. After struggling for about 15 minutes I had to pull my tech-savy boyfriend in to figure it out for me, otherwise I would have been dead in the water. I am not tech illiterate, and to prove my point, it took my boyfriend another hour until he finally was able to get it to work. Overall, it was a bit frustrating to get the adapter installed and working, but now it works great and I have no complaints in that regard.

    Pros: Great performance, it seems to have cut down internet latency. I'm on Hughesnet(Satellite), which works well for web browsing and video streaming but stinks for online gaming because of high latency times. Since I replaced my crazy wired underneath the basement network with this and a wireless router...I can play a few games online and things are more responsive now.
    Cons: Big antenna but I find that a pro more than a con. Reception is good.

    Easy installation, small, compact. None so far Bought this for a roommate, didn't work with his system due to problems with his system, not the adapter. Used it on mine for a while, worked well under Vista, install was kind of long for what it was, but no problems during. I'm near the router so can't comment on range. Even though I really don't need it, I'm satisfied with the purchase. I only gave it 4 eggs as I don't have much time with it.

    Pros: Cheap of course. Super easy install.
    Cons: none
    Cheap of course. Super easy install. none I have held off for years going wireless since I play First Person Shooters and can notice a huge difference in gameplay with even 10-20 milliseconds. I was stunned when I got this thing working and it only gave me an increase of about 5 milliseconds. I only tested it for a short while but was highly impressed. My wife is happy at not having cables on the ground too =)

    Worked out of the box with Ubuntu 10.10 Locked up computer on first reboot; locks up computer on insertion now. I started the computer and logged in - plugged in the adapter and within 15 seconds was on the network downloading much needed updates for my system. After updates, the system needed a reboot. On reboot, system locked up and now locks up whenever it is inserted. I'm still working on fixing the problem (assuming just a driver issue)...but I wish the first experience was consistent...

I have a dual boot (xp & vista home) on the desktop and works well on both os.

    Pros: I got this for an easy way to connect to my network without the need to run a temporary LAN cable each time I take on a computer repair job for friends or family (which I've been doing allot of lately). When compared to my laptop's built-in 54g this has greater range. No problems installing on Windows 7 64 bit.
    Cons: It's a bit larger than I expected, but since it comes with a USB extension cable it won't block any nearby USB ports.

I would have been happier if Debian Linux could have made use of it but I purchased it for a Windows computer. Maybe a future Linux release will work.
    Did not try the included software to connect, wired the computer into my router and let Win Update install any needed software then move it to a new location that I don't want to run a wire to.

I wanted to put this somewhere out of the way yet have internet access, it took me longer to boot vista than to install the drivers. It worked great on each platform, seemed fast enough and was drop dead simple to install.
    Cons: None yet

I put the actual receiver away from the computer to minimize any potential interference and used a small velcro patch to stick it on the back of the bookshelf.
    I'm impressed, usually you get something and it goes 99% through the installation and your missing that one little thing, not this, works great.

    Pros: Works great
    Easy install
    good distance
    Cons: Because of the way the USB is installed in the computer, the antenna will point down or to either side, not up. Doesn't seem to matter though

    Pros: i do not understand why the cost of this thing is so low. Perhaps others are sorely overpriced. I have this thing plugged directly into my computer. I point it DIRECTLY at my refrigerator as behind the refrigerator and through the wall and the TV on the other side is my router... I always have nothing less than full bars.
    This adapter is truly like no other. The latency is just as good if not better than plugging directly into your router with cat5 wire.
    Installs easily on Windows 7 x64. The way I installed it was I plugged it in and manually located the driver on the CD and added it. (I did this in fear of adding unnecessary third party software that comes when you don't know what you are doing and click buttons on Installation CD menus)
    Cons: If you use the added USB extension cord your latency will drop to that of "other" wireless devices as it does not relay the ideal amount of power. They were nice enough to give a fre USB cord but I am yet to find a USB adapter that comes with a free repeating USB extension which is not relevant to the quality of this device itself.

    Pros: Bought this adapter because I needed something simple in the interim and it was inexpensive. I haven't had any experience with TP-Link but their products seemed to have gotten good reviews overall in the past so I figured, why not?
    It's a nice and small adapter that works great for laptops or desktops alike. Range is good and simple to setup.
    Cons: None.

    It's a nice and small adapter that works great for laptops or desktops alike. Range is good and simple to setup. None. If you plan on using it for a desktop setup, like myself, I suggest using the USB extension and putting it up on your desk or a surface higher than the tower. I found that I was only getting roughtly 3 of 5 bars while directly connected to the PC and 5 bars when above and away from the PC. My guess is interference, which is no big deal. Speeds didn't seem to change from A to B.

    Pros: It worked right out of the box seems ok.

I decided to use tplink routers and these adapters at a customer and there 5 yr old d-link equipment had more range and dropped fewer packets, when within about 80-100' it had an extremely constant ping rate but any further than 150 and it starts dropping packets.

    Pros: I owned a different, well known adapter before this and I could only get 2, maybe 3 signal strength bars out of 5 on a good day. The transfer rate averaged maybe 36 Mbps. Some days it would drop to 18 Mbps, rarely did I see 54 Mbps. I've used this adapter for two weeks now and it is 3-4 bars and always 54 Mbps. I used the 3 ft cord that came with the adapter to plug it in as the computer is in an alcove in my computer desk with little space in back.
    Cons: The provided cord is only 3 ft long. I bought a 10 ft cord to move the adapter away from my computer and accessories. I plugged the 10 ft cord in yesterday and moved the adapter to the top of the computer desk hutch. At the higher elevation (same place my old adapter was located, I got an extra bar in signal strength so it is now a steady 4 bars. I guess that's a pro! Replace the short cord with a longer one.

    Pros: This is one powerful little wireless adapter. The antenna is sturdy and has a full 360-degrees of rotation, which is fantastic. I replaced an old PCI wireless card with this (it was getting poor reception due to crowding because of SLI) and I could not be happier with my purchase.

    January 1, 2011 Michael says:
    Pros: -The signal strength of this thing is amazing, seriously. My last adapter was running about 2-3 bars, and on random occasion 4 bars. This thing consistently gets 4 bars and a lot of times 5 bars, with a mediocre router about 30 feet away.
    -Easy to install, and has a couple of other features. I probably won't use them, but they're nice to have.
    -One of the best surprises this has, it comes with a USB extension cord. Not a necessity in my opinion, but it's pleasant to have.
    Needless to say, for 20 dollars, this thing dominates it's 40 dollar retail equivalents.
    Cons: The only real con this thing has, is that it's HUGE. That's not a drawback for me, but just the adapter alone is gigantic in comparison to other adapters, coupled with the antenna. This thing eats up a lot of space, and might not be easy to plug up in the back..
    The space was probably needed to get the hardware for the excellent signal strength so, no con for me, but it's worth noting.

    Pros: When it works it works well. I am getting 4/5 bars from my router downstairs and on the other side of the house using g (not n).
    Cons: Has issues when used on a windows 7 computer with Kaspersky anti-virus. I had it working for about an hour with the anti-virus until I unplugged the adapter and moved it to the back of the computer. It bugged out and hours later I was unable to get it connected. My simple solution was just to uninstall Kaspersky Internet Security and put a different anti-virus in.

    Cons: The only problem is is that it's not USB 3.0 so on my system, it has to use the standard usb. Because of this, it might cover up a second usb slot while its in use. So depending on your system, it would probably be best to get one that goes inside of your computer.

    Pros: Excellent reception. Windows 7 shows it has full strength and that's about 35 feet and 3 walls from the router. I live in an older house with thick walls and that isn't slowing it down a bit.
    Cons: I had to rig up a way to set it on the desk with the (included, which is nice) USB extension cord. I was planning on sticking it in the back of the computer, but the orientation of it (or my USB ports) would only allow it to do that if I had the antenna pointing straight down (towards the floor) or perpendicular to the floor. At any rate, not sure that this is necessarily the adapter's fault, and it's workin' fine now anyhow.
    Windows 7 wouldn't automatically recognize even a general driver for this thing. I had to insert the disc, which isn't a hassle or anything, but I can't remember the last time I used a CD or DVD to install software or drivers. I probably wouldn't even have a DVD drive in my computer now if it wasn't leftover from scrapping my previous machine...

I can see more points than with the built-in adapter in my laptop. I'd give it a 5, but I haven't had it long enough.

    Pros: Dramatic increase in signal. I couldn't stay connected with my internal wireless card but the TL-WN722 locks on and stays locked on. Fast install, less than five minutes, and it's connected! This product is WELL worth the price!!! I've tried other products before and this one is hands down the best!!!!!!!!!!!
    Cons: This product does NOT work with Windows 7, 32bit OS. I run a dual boot system, whereas before I used Win7 32bit on my primary partition (which didn't work even with the new drivers from the website) I now use the 64bit OS. On my backup partition I use Vista Home Premium 32bit, and it worked on the first run (that's how I was able to download the Win7 drivers).
    Also, the antennae is on the wrong side of the product (you really won't get the full capability of the product without it). But using the USB extender cancels this out if you don't mind the long cable.

    Pros: It is great! We bought one of these several months ago for my Daughters PC. It worked so well when I needed to replace an only WiFi adapter, this is the one I wanted. It gets really good signal, and has really good connection speed, getting almost the same speeds as my wife's laptop does 10 feet from the router, with this adapter being located 40+ feet in the next room.
    Cons: None it is easy to set up, and works great.

    Pros: I bought this because my Asus laptop's built-in wireless adapter is weak and I often lose the signal from my router that's only 40' away! The TP-Link adapter is so much better: Wireless signal strength is stronger, web surfing/gaming/downloads smoother, and no more disconnects. The adapter also works well with my old Win XP desktop. (The laptop's OS is Vista 32.)
    Cons: My only concern is the durability of the adapter antenna because I travel a lot, but since it hasn't broken yet, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I did not bother with the software in the CD packaged with the adapter. Instead downloaded the ones from TP-Link's site. TP-Link's wireless connections software is not as pretty or intuitive as Windows'. Took me a minute to figure it out when I used the adapter in my WinXP desktop PC.

    Cons: Doesn't work with Linux as far as I know. I use Gentoo distro and the kernel doesn't have a driver for it. I checked and it is "unknown" whether there will even be one developed. Other models have drivers available however.

    Pros: Worked great right as soon as I plugged it in and installed drivers. Has a better range than my laptops built-in wireless and was detecting tons of networks that were previously out of reach.
    Cons: Had a bit of a hiccup when installing drivers from the provided software disc. So just went to TP-LINK's website and grabbed the drivers there then only took a minute to install.

    Pros: None
    Cons: Bought this thing about 2 weeks ago, and it doesn't work.
    Followed the directions about installing the drivers, and still doesnt work.
    It comes up in device manager, but it doesn't allow me to see any networks.
    Luckily I only payed 20 bucks for this thing. Next time I'm going with the netgear.

    Pros: Drivers and utilities were a breeze to install. Signal strength and speed are great. After upgrading to this from a PCI Wireless G adapter, I am blown away!
    Cons: None. Keeping the antenna further away from the rest of the computer via a tether is what some people swear by, but I have had no problems with interference whatsoever.

    Pros: Sleek design, comes with a long usb extension cable, gives me good signal and gives me higher speeds than I knew my internet was capable of.
    Cons: It didn't sing me a nifty show tune when I opened the box.
    Sleek design, comes with a long usb extension cable, gives me good signal and gives me higher speeds than I knew my internet was capable of. It didn't sing me a nifty show tune when I opened the box. I used this to replace a certain other famous brand, you know, the B one. :P The other one was ten dollars more than this one, and this one works much, MUCH better.

    Cons: customer service, HA! available monday through friday and limited hours as well, way to look out for your customers, really folks, keep your expectations extremely low with these guys and you will never be unhappy, but if you expect a company to do what they say, i suggest you go elsewhere.

    Pros: Look no further! I was familiar with TP-Link to begin with, great company, what I wasn't familiar with was this model. And I must say it has been the best purchase per dollar amount I've made in at least 2 years. Set up was easy, use the CD, and service was boosted from 2 bars max to 4-5 bars :)
    Cons: Absolutely none!!!

    Pros: Compared to my 9 month old rosewill RNX-N300 this thing is a dream. I've got 5 bars on the otherside of my house through several rooms while the rosewill gave me 2 or would decide to just not work at all.
    Also the price is awesome.
    Cons: None so far.

I velcroed the TP-Link to the top of the case and don't even think about it.

    Removable antenna - can connect whatever you want. does not pay my bills. Thats exactly what I was looking for - it works with my asus eee netbook(win XP), its fast, and I get up to 200% signal boost compared to built-in wi-fi.

    Pros: it's right on budget. works great.
    Cons: once plugged into the case, the antenna is pointing down.. a minor design flow. Not really a con for me though, the router is downstairs :)

    Pros: This passed the Hulu stream test, and several other obsticles, I tried to stump it with. Works well on Ult 7x64 with an easy download from site. It only required one try to pick-up three signals, and as I live on an acreage, that tells me the range is outstanding. I couldn't find a place that it would show less than full strength.
    Cons: That I put off wireless connectivity so long.
    They are out of stock.

    Cons: None so far.

    Pros: Quick, easy, and works! Not to mention cheap! The longest part of the process was finding my code key to connect to my router. :) Installation was a snap!

    Quick, easy, and works! Not to mention cheap! The longest part of the process was finding my code key to connect to my router. :) Installation was a snap! None as far as I can tell. I bought this one over others because the manufacturer responded to negative feedback in the reviews to try to solve any possible problems. I figured anyone who stood behind their product that much was a pretty safe bet. I bought this to connect our old computer, which we moved upstairs, to the router downstairs. My internet runs a bit slower than the new computer downstairs, but I am pretty sure that is because this computer is almost a decade old. In fact, it might even run faster than when it was hardwired in downstairs!

    Pros: Great hardware in a small package. Comes with a USB cable if you want to mount elsewhere. This works much better than a PCI adapter in my opinion, and you can't beat the quality for such a good price.

This works much better than a PCI adapter in my opinion, and you can't beat the quality for such a good price. None at all! If you have some double-sided sticky pads you can use the USB cable to mount this on your monitor or on your wall for better signal strength.

    Pros: Nice speed boost (coming from 54Mbps)
    Hasn't lost signal once
    Included USB extension is great for freeing up adjacent USB ports as well as optimally positioning the adapter
    It's even nice looking, you can't ask for more from a wireless adapter.
    Cons: Installation on Windows 7 64-bit required getting updates from the company's website. This is obviously a potential hassle, I just ran an ethernet cord from my wireless router to my desktop.
    Other than that, NO cons.

    Small and portable, easy installation, impressive speed and range. The cap for the usb is annoying, i dont know what to do with it. its a little awkward on the machine. The windows 7 drivers are not built in. For windows 7 users, you need to go to their website and download the drivers for the adapter yourself, or else Win7 will not pick up the device. I struggled for 2 hours wondering why Win7 was not picking it up, so i downloaded the drivers myself and it worked.

    Pros: Works great. Good speed, low latency. Great portability. Good QoS on a 2 computer home network about 15ft from the wireless router.
    Cons: Windows 7 is not plug-n-play. You need to download the latest drivers from TP link and install ONLY the Windows 7 64 bit drivers (at least if you have Win7 64bit). Don't use anything off the included CD as there are no Win7 drivers on it (only XP/Vista 32/64 bit).

If you do install anything off the CD you are going to need to uninstall it, completely, and install just the win 7 drivers, otherwise you'll have no connectivity. The included apps on the CD don't work under Windows 7. That said, Win 7 drivers installed, and instant connection.

    Cons: The client software is not fancy, but it supports both infrastructure and ad hoc STATION MODEs perfectly. Would be nice if they added an ACCESS POINT MODE, which is available in some other clients.
