FakeSpot gives it a C (large number fake/paid for reviews).
The adjusted average review, removing the fakes, is 2/5* (i.e. crap)
.



If you are on Windows 10 and get "Publisher Blocked" error message, you have to download the newer driver .exe available here (scroll down to bottom and look for WF-R13 Wi-Fi Adapter Driver for Windows" which is version 5.1.28 (dated 1/20/2017):

For all those looking for a Linux or Mac drivers.

The Aukey WF-R13 uses the Mediatek MT7612U chipset. And Mediatek does provide Linux & Mac drivers for that chipset. You might try your luck by downloading the driver files directly from the Mediatek website - https://www.mediatek.com/products...fi/mt7612u [mediatek.com]

Note: Looks like the Linux & Mac download links are interchanged. I downloaded the Linux file and got a 'dmg' file while the Mac file had a tar ball with a lot of .c and .sh files which I think is for Linux. You probably need to compile and make your own driver on Linux.

Good luck and if you've got it to work, please post here for others' reference.

Great price, but junk apparently.


Reviews (Amazon & Newegg) are not kind.

Probably not as it would require specific drivers to work. If your player has an Ethernet port, you can buy a wireless bridge to make it work I believe.
