    I am beside myself with pleasant surprise, after I have tried a myriad of USB power antennas and wirelss and AC-mediated range extenders of all makes and models which I could never get either configured or to effect any improvement once installed and configured. I ordered this unit as the “last straw” approach merely as a desperate supplement to another Amazon order to bring the total to “free shipping” qualification! I shall describe the setup and function in considerable detail because wireless can be tricky, and I don’t want you to get on the wrong track and become discouraged with a fine product.

    TECHNICAL:

    The device attaches to a USB port and Windows 7 will find a driver for it immediately. The kit comes with a mini CD which your optical drive may or may not accommodate. If not, you can burn the files onto a regular CD for loading the specific drivers and installation utility. However, a far better option is to go directly to Ralink’s website and download the latest driver, since it is about 9 months more proximate to the current date than the one included on at least my miniCD. I had done the aforementioned transfer from the 3″ disc, but when I started to launch it, I realized that it was outdated, and made the installation from the downloaded file which you can of course save to your hard drive for later use. The address for the download is included on the instruction sheet. It is the first download in the list under USB 2870 Win 7 32/64. If you didn’t know that, you wouldn’t know which file to pick.

    The installation is very quick, but afterwards, if you have an encrypted wireless network(which I hope you all have), you will have to set up the parameters so that the antenna can join your security- protected wireless network. This is done through your just loaded RaLink’s configuration utility which will autolaunch at the end of the initial installation, or, if you are doing it on a delayed basis, you access in the Start/Programs menu. The instruction pamphlet very clearly tells you stepwise what to do to, more or less, to guide you through the configuration. The available networks will be picked up and displayed. You pick which you want and click Connect at the bottom right of the Window. This will bring up a dialogue box which requires you to enter the type of security you have (WPA, WPA 2, WEP, etc.), and the encoding algorithm (AES, TKIP, etc.). You also have to enter the name of your network(under the initially confusing “Tunnel name”, in the window, and then your network password. You MUST have that information ready to enter or you will NOT be able to configure your antenna. If you don’t know what you have, go to your router’s configuration ultility, which is usually accessed through your browser, enter your security passcode to get on the site, then drill down to the section involving Wireless and Security(different manufacturers have different schemes). The above needed information is all stored there to refresh your memory, or to imprint on it, if you never paid any attention to it when you maybe automatically configured your router. You go from one step to the next by pressing the “next” or right-facing arrow. After the final “next”, the antenna will then link up immediately and give you a connection. Reading this word by word, it sounds complicated, but it is not, and the process is intuitive. The buttons have little balloons to help you as well.

    If you don’t thereafter see increased signal strength, you may need to temporarily disable the onboard LAN adapter. You do this in the Device Manager in the Network Adapter section. (Hit the Windows logo key and the Pause break key and in the window which comes up, on the far left margin, choose DEVICE Manager) You’ll see your integrated NIC and the Ralink Entry when you expand the Network adapter subsection. Right click on your computer’s endogenous entry and select DISABLE. After you do this, your computer will default to your new antenna, and the signal strength will rise immediately. Interestingly, if you then re-enable your native adapter, there will be NO recurrent problem. There is no inherent conflict in the hardware thereafter, even when you reboot. They work perfectly well side by side. This little glitch may not apply to everybody, but since I experienced this during the initial setup, I wanted to pass this on so that you don’t get discouraged. Just let the two work side by side.

    One thing to note is that since the antenna derives its power from the laptop, just as does the inboard WiFi antenna, you will notice an increased rate of battery depletion when this unit is connected, over and above from the stock antenna, but it is in NO way troublesome unless you are using it for protracted periods of time, in which case, I would recommend you attach your AC adapter…

    After going through 3 other adapters for almost twice the price I gave this lower priced adapter a shot… IT OUT PERFORMS THE REST hands down.. Save your money and purchase this product.. I am so happy.. We are on the road and have to use hotel motel internet 300+ days a year and if you are in our position you know they offer high speed internet at most but you can never hook up because of all the interference due to walls, location to routers,etc. This adapter blows through all of this and we always hook up at max speed/quality offered… WOW what a difference…

    I agree with the others completely that this is a fantastic adapter. I was having trouble with my laptop (intel 1000 b/g/n adaper) disconnecting with my Buffalo WHR-HP-G300N router. When I did connect, the connection speeds would vary from 65mbps to 130mbps. Even when my wireless card was working properly, the signal would bounce from 265mpbs back down to 130 or less after an hour.

    I thought I would give this little guy a shot. WOW! What a difference it makes. Solid 300mbps. I also see neighborhood routers that I used to see at 1 bar and are now up to four bars. In fact, I see routers I didn’t know existed. As a test, I tried connecting to my neighbor’s router. He has the exact same router that I do. For whatever reason, my built-in Intel Wi-fi card would not disconnect from his router, however I would only see one bar and my connection speed was 1-5mbps. Using this adaper (made by Realtek), I now see four bars and connect at the full 300mbps. Additionally, the connection speeds are rock solid.

    Regarding setup with Windows 7 (I am using x64 version), there is no need for the CD (contains drivers and a program called Ralink for configuring the card) that comes with it. First, disable your internal network card within device manager. Second, connect this device, Windows 7 will recognize it, and then use the built-in Windows connectivity tools.

    Bottom line: If I could give this thing 6 stars I would. The only thing I might change is to make the USB cable a little longer. It is of sufficient length to set comfortably on the table next to my couch, but it would be nice to attach the adapter to the wall (use velcro?) and then just tether my laptop to the USB cable. This is personal preference though.
