Will this work for a gaming system? Like Xbox 1?
The XBox One already has a wireless adapter built in, so it's very likely this isn't supported.

If you're having signal issues, look into getting a wireless range extender (you might even have an old router laying around that can be converted for this... either out of the box or using 3rd party firmware like DD-WRT) or an Ethernet over powerline adapter.

Not really going to get true long range performance unless you are using an external power supply to power an amplifier

Can comment as I had this for a short time. Worked great and only reason we returned ours was upgrading our PCs to have built in wireless. For the price, you won't be disappointed.

Not saying you're not correct but cant the USB also be a power supply to the amplifier if it has one built in?

I brought this from a lighting deal back in August for $1 more. It's great and no conplaints. My modem is in the basement and I'm able to get a good signal in my attic with this.

Correct, but i was hoping to give it more range. We are trying to get WiFi from our apartment building to our community area. An extender did not reach the area, so trying this

Look into using a router set up as a wireless adapter (DD-WRT calls it "client mode"), as these can be plugged into any ethernet port (game consoles, TVs) and function identical to a USB wifi adapter without the device needing to support it, often with better performance.

If you get one with removable external antennas, you can replace them with directional antennas or add parabolic reflectors to give them a little more oomph.

Keep in mind, though, making changes on your end alone can only go so far. Wireless networking is a two way street.

You're all being duped; this product is spec'ed exactly the same, and performs no better, than the $14.99 product at https://amzn.to/2yOZ7mh

The one you posted doesn't have the extender. If that's not worth $2 to you, fine, but I actually prefer to be able to plug the adapter into one of the rear USB ports for the best performance and move it around front to get the best signal.

Not having an extension on it usually means blocking adjacent USB ports, too.

For anyone wondering if this is linux compatible, we have these on Fedora 28 servers with the rtl8812au drivers compiled. I also know one of the techs uses it on a ubuntu laptop for site surveys. Smilie
