It works in Windows 10. It takes a bit of work to get it working with Raspberry Pi Model B+. It does not seem to support MAC spoofing, so it cannot be use as a Homepass (Streetpass relay) device for Nintendo 3DS

Great little device.

I bought this for the Raspberry Pi 2b and after hearing that extra drivers where needed I was a little apprehensive. Plugged it in, detected network settings and started working right away. Awesome.

Great little device that works as expected.

Small, Convenient! But BEWARE ....

I have wireless Keyboard AND Mouse using the same 2.4GHz band. Causing often slower (or none) connections to the internet. I use my Mobile with the same router and get VERY fast downloads. The USB dongle is be clashing the the Keyboard and Mouse wireless transmitter. Just beware that the Wifi dongle is not very immune to outside interference. This is known issue that is well known on the internet.

Good luck!

The Best Wifi USB Receiver I've ever owned.

Can get up to 400kbps transfer on this so i'm happy.
But for those who want faster speeds get the 300Mbps one, but only if your router can support that high speed.

Mine can't, so this is perfect. And you can't beat that price.

Very good product. Does as advertised. It is really tiny and works well. Setup is simple.

Great product, great price.

Works well on my Lenovo running on Windows 10.

Picks up the Wi-Fi perfectly.
Very easy to set up and no connection drops.

Bought this in 2016 and product still works great!

Works great! A little bit tricky to get devices connected.

Works like a charm with my Raspberry Pi right from the otherside of my house.

Works awesomely, I've never had a problem. Being so tiny I can just leave it in the USB port without worrying about it being knocked. The packaging is fantastic and it is a good quality product.
Fast, easy ordering and delivery as always. :)

It is worth mentioning that this is Version 2 of the device, which uses the RTL8188EUS chipset. This makes a major difference from the V1 (chipset RTL8188CUS) which is the compatible version for ARM based architectures (short of building the driver source yourself).

This means V2 is notoriously harder to get working on Raspberry Pi.

Great device, but I had to search the web for a working Win 10 driver for the devise.

Worked out the box, came very quickly and the best experience of a good product

I'm about 7 meters from the router with a wall in the way, signal is pretty good. Drivers worked easily. Nice and small. So far so good.

Excellent range even through 3 walls. No dropouts or issues so far. Recommended.

Does the job.

Your connection will drop like a fat kid on a see-saw. Bought two of these and tested and them on various different PC's and wireless networks, result is the same... Unreliability. Rather spend a bit more and invest in something that will give you a solid connection.

Excellent item. Works well on Windows 64bit. No issues. Great service from Takealot

Super impressed at the performance of this item, for this price - it was true plug and play - popped it in, and I was on the network. The range and speed of transmission is also very solid for something so tiny.

Works out of the box on Ubuntu 14.04, no issues so far.

great device plug and play cant beat the price

Very useful

Great, works in Ubuntu 16.04 xenial, which is what I use, here's the link for instructions

Good value for money. Does what it supposed to do.

It works as expected. It's pretty decent, but don't expect it to work more than a room away from the AP.

Windows 7 requires drivers, doesn't auto download them though windows update, Linux Mint 18 picked it up instantly as a Realtek NIC. Overall it's ok, no unexpected deal breakers for the price at least, just the really limited range. Still has its uses.

Works fantastic

They weren't kidding when they said plug a play. Works perfect on Windows 10. Btw, the USB is gold plated.

Love it and works perfectly.

Great little product, was easy to install and range is reasonable for what you pay. Recommended

Not plug-&-play. You need to install the software from the disc which is provided in the packaging.

Excellent device. Works very well with no issues at all. Very small and neat. Easy to use other usb ports while this wifi adaptor is connected to existing one. Very happy I that bought it. Highly recommended.

Works great.

Plug 'n forget. Worked no problem on RaspberryPi 1 & AppleTV1 with OSMC.

Second one I've bought - first one was for home many months ago, needed one @ church to get desktop PC onto net. Plug in, install driver from CD and away you go, simple as that. Awesome.

Great product

Bought this for my laptop because I was unable to connect with the laptops inbuilt wifi. Connected the USB and it has been working like a champ. Does everything that it is meant to do with no fuss.

Works perfectly, nice and small - plug and play.

Easy setup, great quality at a great price.

Get a pci-e WiFi card or WiFi extender if you're going to buy this item

Works great and very convebnient

This does what it says.. and what can you expect from a wifi adapter with no antenna? That being said, I was a little disappointed with how much the connection dropped over a 4m range through 2 walls. I have other devices much further with small antennas or even NO antennas that dont drop the connection as often. Originally I bought this for use with my raspberry pi (see below), but I ended up adding it to my secondary computer, running windows.

DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU PLAN ON USING IT WITH A RASPBERRY's not supported by Raspbian, and there are no drivers for this for Raspbian either.. I managed to get it working after 5 hours of struggling and working through vague online guides, but really you are better off just buying a different one.

I had a few issues with drivers. But got support and working great!

Works perfectly and small enough to leave in my laptop

Great product! Highly recommended.

Good product at a good price.

This is my second review on this little product. Ironically I praised it in my first review, and directly afterwards my problems began. I do not think its a bad product now, but it kept on losing connection between my TP-Link router and my PC. The PC had all the correct drivers installed. Most probably there is another software (firmware) problem. I'm currently using a Trendnet wireless N Nano USB in conjunction with my TP-Link router, and I can say, for sure, that there is NO problems with connectivity now.

Nice and compact, works well as a plug in and forget adapter.

Functions as expected. Good performance considering its size.

Simple, affordable and does what it should. Bit flaky when using it with citrix remote connection though. Unsure if that's the device or my proximity from the router.

All in all a good product.

I'm happy

Works great, hasnt given me any issues yet.
And for the price, couldn't ask for more (or less in this case :P)

Works flawlessly. Never drops connection. Is fast. 5/7.

Very poor range and not stable even when AP is 1m away. I bought three units and cannot use any of them.

Easy installation. Works like a charm. Hardly visible.

Works very well. Very happy with this wireless USB receiver.

Works well with my desktop.

Very satisfied with product so far. Good reception. Easy to install. Working perfectly on my desktop pc with Intel P4 processor and Win XP SP2.

Good product. Does exactly what you expect from it.

Easy installation, works great.

Worked first time with no driver issues. (Win 10)

works great

Great product. Does what it's supposed to.

Small, Compact, is well hidden when plugged into computer, and works very well.

Terrible product, constant connectivity drops using Windows 10 x64. Drivers have been installed and updated. This could be an issue with my device.

Amazing product. Simple and efficient. Reasonable throughput
Definitely worth the price.

I have bought two of these, and they work great. No problems and easy to set up.

Great product, have no issues with speed and it is very small which makes it great to plug in and forget.

Works perfectly and easy to setup.

Works great!

I saw a comment saying that the signal gets interfered with other wireless gadgets, luckily in my case it hasn't so far. I have it connected as well as two wireless mouses and a wireless keyboard no interference!

Doesn't work ????

Very good for the price would recommend to all

Can it be connected to a laser printer to print wirelessly?

Amazingly easy Plug&Play on Win10

I think I got a dud. Did not work as plug and play, after installing the driver and utility it still does not work. Tried on several PC's, device is detected and configured correctly, it connects to to the modem, but unable to connect to the internet. I'm returning this item. :(

Absolutely Brilliant - plug and play basically. Speed and very reliable. Great value for Money too.

It works when it wants. It works when it wants. Slow getting slow connection speeds (90mbs) with a modem doing 300Mbs.
Also keeps dropping connection. Highly annoying.
But it works when it wants.

Works perfectly as describedon on specification.

It does work but it is quite slow for me to play online and it sometimes just doesn't work forcing me to plug it into another port.

Works like a charm for the size of the product.
Playing 1080p movies is a breeze. Tried a UHD movies once but didn't work that well but haven't tried it again as I do not really watch UHD movies.
The TP-LINK TL-WN725N does the job well for what I wanted it to do seeing that it couldn't connect to a Wi-Fi network before this.
No more unnecessary network cables.

Nice and compact easy to configure. I love it.

Didnt work on Windows 10...

Simple little device. Unwrap. Plug in. Game on.

Very easy to use. You just have to plug it in and install the software from the disk. After that, you are ready to go! The size is convenient for laptops as well. The range is decent up to a number of meters but that is okay because I only need it for my phone. I am using it with Connectify and it works well. I love it!

It works really well, I recommend this!

Works great. Plug it in, loaded it via the cd and it worked. Really cant complain.

Works very well! Easy to install!

Works as specified

It works,like it should!

Works well and the delivery was super fast. I'm very satisfied with the product.

Works wonderfully

I'm loving mine... Using it with a Huawei b315 wifi router

Worked perfectly from the start!

Not plug n play have to install drivers for my windows 7. But works well. Just what I wanted.
Speed drops when moved away from access point

Woks well out of the box.

Works as advertised. Plugged it in, loaded driver from CD, connected to WiFi. Done.

Works well, happy with the product.

nice little device and easy to connect for wireless internet

Great product and works out of the box on Windows 8.
Thank you TakeAlot

Terrible to get it to work not sure what the problem is... the software take ages to load then it dont open... a nightmare

So I bought this wifi adapter after I upgraded my pc and my old wifi adapter no longer worked on the newer hardware, it's been working fine for a few months now and I even recommended it to a friend of mine, then he started having problems with it where it wouldn't work on his PC and it just said secured, no internet with a triangle and a explanation mark over the wifi icon. Me being a IT specialist said I'd have a look at it for him and I was struggling a good few days and still it wouldn't work. I thought his was just a dud cause mine seemed to be working fine, anyway today I got home turned on my pc to have the exact same problem as he has...the sad thing is there doesn't seem to be a fix for it. So I don't recommend this adapter rather spend a bit more money and buy something proper. Just so you know it isn't officially supported on windows 10 which I suspect to be the problem

Works well for connecting to my Samsung galaxy s6 and and as well to my router

Was working for 2 weeks, pay a little more for a device thats gonna last

This replaced the item that was missing in our original order. Impressed with the speedy resolution to the problem.

Easy to setup and works like a charm (Desktop PC).
Only complaint is that there seems to be a bit of extra latency with the connection to the router, though there are lots of factors influencing this. Seems to be slightly worse than the mobile devices for instance. It works fine for what I needed it for though.

Constant connectivity drops

Does what it's supposed to, wifi speed is brilliant, computer picks It up immediately with no problem

Superb thanks.

Worked for Ubuntu.
