TP-Link's 300Mbps Mini Wireless N USB Adaptor TL-WN823N is designed to connect your laptop or desktop to a wireless network and enjoy high speed wireless performance. The fingertip design makes the Adaptor convenient and easy to carry around. What's more, the TL-WN823N features SoftAP Mode, one-button security setup, easy-to-use configuration software, making it a great choice for enjoying fast wireless network. With wireless speeds of up to 300Mbps and advanced MIMO technology, the TL-WN823N provides you with a fast, reliable wireless connection for lag-free online gaming and video streaming. Better still, TL-WN823N achieves the best performance with wireless N devices, but also works seamlessly with existing IEEE 802.11b/g networks. SoftAP Mode enables this tiny Adaptor to work as a virtual wireless Access Point. Once applied, this mode allows users to easily turn their existing wired connections to a laptop or PC into wireless and share it with other Wi-Fi enabled devices like laptops, smartphones or tablets. Compatible with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), TL-WN823N features Quick Security Setup that allows users to almost instantly setup their security simply by pressing the WPS button to automatically establish a WPA2 secure connection, more secure than WEP encryptions.

Does everything it says. Great price


October 2020

We live in an old cottage, wifi difficult to get through thick walls. I wanted a wifi extender to improve connectivity to a computer further down the hall which is too far away for ethernet cabling. Didn't want an expensive gadget, just a usb extender. This little gadget has worked very well. A little difficult to set up but once set up connectivity has been super. good speed and wifi not dropping out. Would definitely recommend this usb wifi extender.
