USB Wifi Adapter

Post by Iced Coffee Man » Tue Jul 31, 2018 6:52 pm

What is a good brand or reliable adapter? Is it worth paying more at a place like Officeworks or MSY , or just get a cheaper one from Ebay?

I haven't used one but looking at reviews, these ones are supposed to be good at an OK price. That's if you want something small.

The second one is 5ghz only.

Use PENNY5 to get 5% off.

Can recommend TPlink.

I have a stack of their USB, pci and pcie ones, all are great.

If you want better os compatibility, most dlink ones work as far back as windows 2000 or Xp all the way to 10 and Linux.

My cheap and decent foot is TP-Link TL-WN821N

Not the fastest of the ones I have but for the $14-18 it’s pretty damn decent!
