Net-Dyn USB Wifi Adapter Review

The package includes the product and a mini cd. One laptop I have doesn't have a CD drive and the other doesn't take mini cds so I had to located the software online. The packaging doesn't include a link or information about the company. I searched online but couldn't find any links. Luckily another reviewer had included that information on Amazon and I could download the software. 

The most recent link for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 is here: http://mediatek.com/en/downloads/usb/
The most recent for Mac is this one: http://mediatek.com/en/downloads/usb-rt2870rt2770rt3x7xrt537xrt5572/

Does it work? Well, I don't really know yet. I was interested because we have spots in our house that the wifi doesn't work as well. As I try this out, I have wifi access, I haven't dropped connection. 

The device is small, the black cover does slide off as other reviewers state. It really wasn't a problem for me since I had read about it happening and given a little extra squeeze, the black cover stayed put and I could remove the device. 

I give this product three stars instead of five because of the lack of information on the packaging about the company, the fact that the cover comes off the product, and the installation wasn't that easy to follow due to the fact that a basic computer user will not understand the lingo being used in the PDF instructions. 

Wifi USB Adapter NET-DYN® for PC and Mac can be found on Amazon. At the time of this review it sold for $8.99

I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

I bought the net Dyn ac1200 usb wifi adaptor on the basis that it could be installed on Windows, Mac osx and Linux. I use all three Oses on various computers that are available to Me.
Does it work? I really don't know yet.
The install on windows 7, and 8.1 went ok and was able to get to the internet.
The instructions for installing on the mac are totally useless.. Also the mini cd does not have the zipped files that the instructions talk about. So as far as the mac is concerned it is no possible to install from the instructions given of the software not shipped in the mini cd.
Linux? What can I say. The instructions were totally missing. Not a word!!
I know enough about Linux to know tha my distro (Ubuntu) would just probably work with this wifi dongle without the need of any extra software installs. It did! Just plug the usb adaptor and you are ready to go. It is a good as advertised, but only in linux Ubuntu.

Finally there is no indication that the unit is working (somw kind of led light) And Finally what is the button on the front fave for? In other words we need some sort of parts image indicatong what they do.
Should you buy this Unit? Maybe. But you might have a lot of trouble making it work on an Os other than windows.

I bought an NET-DYN WIFI adapter 802.11 Dual-Band USB, rated the top end product. I found Some instructions but no user software would unzip only a useless fragment of part of install data, nothing to unzip.

I went to NET-DYN wifi data. Can the reader or this note direct me to the site that is proper to open the software.

This was very easy to install. I plugged it into my windows 8 PC, with my system being newer, it just installed as a plug and play item which I thought was great. I was able to get access the Internet using it the connection speed great. The package comes with a small usb adapter and mini CD that contains the drivers and user manual, but with a newer PC it will pretty much plug and play. I have tried other similar products and they would not load or the range was not equal to my current wifi. but if you need a great wifi at a great price this is it. My package was delivered with in a couple of days after ordering and I was wifi within minutes of it arriving.
I received this product at a savings price or it is supplied to me in exchange for the purposes of a product review. All opinions are 100% my own and they reflect my honest & unbiased opinion.
