Brilliant bit of kit, although ugly

Firstly... I think it's ugly. But now the bad is out of the way, let's talk about the performance: Through one floor and 3 walls, I still get full strength using this adaptor from the hub downstairs. This is absolutely brilliant. HD video loaded quickly and without any issues at all. Windows 8, you don't even need to use the supplied drivers, just plug it in, and you are good to go.

I don't really understand why they put the socket on what appears to be the front however, that is such an odd choice of design. It only makes sense in that layout, if you are intending to stick it on the wall or something.

Anyway, design aside, highly recommended, and there is a reason it has such a high rating :) Nice work TP-Link, you continue to bring brilliant kit at great prices :)

My dog also ate my TP-Link 300Mbps High-Gain Wireless-N USB Adapter and it survived.

I believe your dog must have been faulty and you should chase up your dog supplier for a refund, not OcUK.

Didnt even need drivers

Brilliant piece of kit, currently using windows 8 and it just plugged in without the need for drivers. Bought to replace a faulty Netgear device which was only just picking up my network.

Craig 2013-02-18

Superb Wifi

Always used TP-Link products for networking and this did not dissapoint. Great range of wireless unit, rock steady connection. Just buy it as they say on the TV shopping channels.

Killed my dog

Whilst i was using this product my dog went and ate it. This resulted in my dogs DEATH. I believe you owe my money back.

A must buy!

I got BT infinity installed 40Mb/s but my PCI wireless NIC would only RX about 9Mb/s, there was only about 15 meters distance from the HH3 and one wall, plugged this wee beauty in and now smashing away at ful speed, plus it now picks up all the routers within 40-50 meters away. Will be buying a couple more for my laptops.

Great item

I have just installed this item with no problem at all! (Win7 64bit) I am getting top download speeds from this with great signal strength! To be honest, its faster that the built in wifi on my laptop!
I would very much recommend this item!

Graeme 2012-01-07

Very Pleased!!

Installed on Win7 64bit flawlessly.. As others have said it does what it says on the tin, unlike many I have tried!! They are about 4 rooms between my comp and my router, and signal strength lies around 64%, this utility shows speeds averaging 162mbit...does jump around quite a bit, I guess that's down to interference from other networks and or router dunno for certain.. I play HD 3D movies to my TV via Samsung Allshare without any buffering or signal loss at all!!

The device arrived very promptly using second class RM, Thank you O,clockers again for great service!! A very well deserved 5 Stars IMHO.....

Cracking Bit Of Kit

Arrived this morning, windows 7 didnt find the drivers so used the supplied driver cd and within about 2 minutes, bam, full signal, 300.0mbps and picking up half the street's wireless connections! Very impressive bit of kit, well chuffed, cheers OCuk.

Dazza 2011-11-02


This arrived this morning for me, to replace my Edimax wireless card which struggles at a weak 1 bar signal. This little piece of magic is a full five bars and absolutely blitzs everything you throw at it. It's unbelievable how well this does the job. It makes pci-slot solutions look weak and tame by comparison.
It scores absolute maximum on and literally reaches 100% net capacity on I have 10-15ms ping on online games, something I haven't seen since I used a wired connection. Yes, it really is that good, as everyone else has said.

Unmissable, if you absolutely have to get something, anything to improve your network connectivity - this is it. Anything else is just a wrong move.

A God Send

This device is probably one of the best things i've bought for my computer in a long time.

I have it little and inferior counterpart and i've been using it for about a month and the speeds and connection i was getting with the Router (that is about 10ft away) downstairs were abysmal

i got this and it took no more than 5 minutes to set up. and 2 seconds to connect
now i'm getting about 20x the speed and a constant - stable connection.

just tested it on a 3gb file. took 10 minutes to download :)

would deffo recommend this to anyone thinking about using wireless in their home where wires aren't feasible.

Phil 2011-09-14

This is EPIC!

This is so strong and amazing if far from router. God I got routers from down the street I have never gotten before

kallum smart 2011-08-31


took 10 seconds install
very fast I cant tell a difference between this and being on wired that's how good this product is

mike 2011-08-13

very good

Plugged in on Win7, didnt even need drivers, Windows picked it up and 30 secs later i was connected. it saw at least 15 networks compared to my old one which saw only 3 and signla strength was at maximum.

Brilliant product

tim 2011-08-09


I needed a new wireless adapter after my old one stopped working correctly. Living in a student house being the furthest away from the router I had 1 bar on my old equipment. I saw the reviews on this product and thought why not. Let me say this is amazing I now have 3 bars and a dead solid connection. The price is a steal and more than worth the price! Thanks Overclockers you legends!

Luke 2011-07-11

5* Worthy

I bought this reading the reviews, and all I can say is damn! just like other's it gives great speeds, and detects a insane distance of wireless networks. Upgrading from a Wireless G USB this thing outshines in every way, and definitely competes with bigger price tag products. 100% recommend.

Sam Tapley 2011-06-15

Just buy it - don't even think

Way better than any other adapter I've ever used or installed - whether PCI or USB. Picks up networks around the whole neighbourhood and so far, has never dropped a connection.

A Kalsey 2011-06-07

One of the best!

One of the best wireless I've ever had! I have change about 9 wireless adapters (belkin, dell, liksys, netgear... ) and this one the best + very cheap! I am surprised and delighted with 216 mbps + PERFECT SIGNAL (about 7 meters from router)!!

Oleg 2011-04-06

Where will it all end though?

I needed this to get througha 2 foot thick cob wall, and combat the ever increasing swamp of microwave interferance from everyone elses wirelss. It does the job perfectly. But when my neighbours amplify their signal to combat my interferance.... What then?

Lugworm 2011-03-27

tis amazing stuff

this is one strong wireless usb adapters out of all of them i get 248 mbps when im close to it and i can get lots from down me street i realised i get more options and tht is ofc a good thing :P

kallum 2011-03-22

Best adapter ever

Bought this to improve a wireless signal from a DIR655 dlink router 2 floors up in the attic. Average signal with a Dlink N adapter was 38% and about 20mb.

This has increased the signal to over 75% and a speed of 84mb. Fantastic adapter. Only down side is the software doesnt work on widows7 64bit. But installs fine with windows driver.

D Robertson 2011-03-03


This is a great wireless USB adapter works really well for weak signal, and very easy to install .gets full marks from me.

B Lee 2011-02-09

Captain Awesome!

I bought a Linksys PCI wireless N adapter as part of a new build and it was absolutely rubbish, replaced it with this as it was just

James Edge 2011-01-14

Excellent Bit of Kit

I recently purchasing a base unit from OcUK, got it all set up only to find that the very expensive "N" class USB adapter I had would not connect to my router, would only pick up 3 of my neighbours & the BT Wi-Fi, my Netbook manages 11.

I did pick my router up but the signal was so weak it just failed to connect so after a day of messing about I decided to purchase this little bit of kit.

Running Windows 7, 32 bit it only installed the driver & not the client, which is fine with me. It installed in less than a minute and detected around 25 other routers including my own and I was able to connect to the internet immediately. I do only get a 3 bar signal but it is stable & runs at full speed which I am more than happy with.

I live in an old building, the adapter is around 150 feet from the router on an upper floor, has to pass through 2 solid stone walls, both around 3 feet thick & & numerous obstacles so a stable 3 bar connection is excellent. Also comes with a 3 year warranty

Tim 2010-10-15

I need TP for my...

Holy smokes, this is good. As soon as the driver was installed, the thing picked up about 20 wireless networks - probably every network on my street! Other wireless equipment picks up maybe 4-5 close networks. When it says high-gain, it means it. Bought this to improve wireless signal on a laptop with a fairly rubbish internal WiFi chip. It copes with the old chunky bricks in my house with no problems, which is more than I can say for other dongles I've used in the past. Wireless signal stays strong and steady (at 270Mbps), even at a distance. Streamed high-def videos online with no problem.

Worth a note - the QSS button on the device doesn't seem to work with Windows 7. Not too bothered as it works fine with my router's WPA2 security configuration.

Highly recommended.
