Pros

Thanks to u. S. Painless to set up. It's tiny, and i like its form factor better than that of the brostrend. But it really needs some venting or <em</em>, because this is more than a little nuts.

The steps are as follows. Follow the instructions to complete the installation. After more web searches, was able to download and upgrade the firmware.



Cons

Not suitable for unattended use. Not very safe imo.

The device runs very hot and i believe it is overheating causing it to hang. My computer detects it is connected to the onboard network but continues to disconnect and reconnect.

When i hook it to my pc to test it, it gets no default gw and no dns. Disabled the firewall, same thing. The online tech support is worthless.

This adapter is not reliable at all. I have to cycle the power daily to keep it connected to my wifi. The router i'm testing it with is 12 feet away. It's easy to set up and easy to use, but doesn't work well for any sort of long-term connectivity.

Quality


I previously bought the similar brostrend product.


This also happened with the similar brostrend product which i previously returned.

Packaging/appearance


Device worked right out of the box.


Pushed one button on the iogear and used my security app for locating wps.

Competitiveness


For reference, i'm using this with my reolink nvr so i don't have to have a 100ft cable.


I almost took off one star because i think it should also have 5ghz wi-fi, and it runs hot.


The deal is:the setup procedure for non-wps windows devices only works with internet explorer or firefox .


It had 5ghz but it also wanted to be wifi repeater.


Works well with my linksys velop mesh wifi.


Fortunately, even my antiquated n-150 router has it.

    I've had hiccups with it, but only a few, and those problems were easily fixed by unplugging the usb-cable and plugging it back in.

    I've been gaming with this for 4 years with minimal issues, and download speeds seem to hit my isp's advertised download maximums.

    The ibook is across the room from my router, so connecting via ethernet cable was inconvenient.

    We almost returned this because you can't set it up in chrome.

    As delivered, the device could not be configured using chrome or mozilla.
