see these all the time,,why does anyone need this? Did​your laptop wifi die,,your desktop doesn't already have a wifi card or isn't hardwired? And well loading that Chinese "driver" CD,,that's your choice.
Most desktop motherboards don't come with Wi-Fi cards. I buy these to supplement for when I'm not hardwired or need to take my PC somewhere.

yes, and most quality PCI cards are much more expensive than these little adapters, and you don't even have to open your case up to install them Smilie

but internal cards run fast enough to actually make use of wireless AC,,USB doesn't



and a quick search showed dozens of quality internal cards for under 15 dollars,,
you make very valid points. but your information is wasted on many around here. not sure what happened to the old slickdeals crowd. now it's more like dickdeals- ask questions or provide info= get flamed

agreed,,everytime I ask a reasonable question or offer factual advise the flame trolls descend
like locus anymore. I have to assume that from the non sequitur responses they post they are vendor or even slick deal trolls being paid to make anything and everything posted on here look like the deal of a lifetime.

It uses the same chipset several of the other recent deals on AC wifi adapters do. There's a driver for it..just search in the other ac600 threads..it's more complicated on a pi because you have to get the rpi-source script and run it to build kernel source...the linux source is available and the pi patches are available but they don't keep the source integrated and available so you have to "build" it. You then have to setup a symbolic link between the source you download and /lib/modules/<kernel version>/build and edit the makefile to change a line so it builds for "ARM" instead of "I386".

Anyway the linux instructions are posted...I then did a google on raspberry pi build kernel module to find the other things out.

I bought my laptop a couple years ago and the internal card doesn't support ac. I needed too be able to connect to my faster 5ghz connection, and this seemed like the fastest and easiest way to do it.

so how are the speeds on this?
I have this retarded win10 tablet that I attempted cloud ready + Linux on but too many bios problems. went back to win and freaking WiFi and touchscreen drivers won't install. been collecting dust for months.

the size of this would be much better than a full usb key one that I tried previously.

every time I turn on my hardwired pc it knocks all the wifi out for some reason. can I just use this instead of the hardwire and it'll run everything fine including stream?

so you take your desktop places??? And a card is almost as cheap and runs on the main buss,,,not via USB,,many times faster.
People do tether their desktop. Speeds suck, anyway, so why bother with PCI?

Not everyone has the same needs you do.
