Vastly improved detection of and connection to wifi hotspots
Rated 5/5 by K Wren "K Wren" on 27 Nov. 2013

Although my netbook and laptop already have an incorporated wireless modem, that on my netbook is very poor and keeps dropping connections.

As it doesn't have a CD/DVD drive connected, I had to use the 'Connection help' section of the included manual and downloaded the drivers online using my home connection. Installation was swift. I then disabled the netbook's own wifi adapter via its switch (it's an old netbook!) then took it away for a few days in the rural Brecon Beacons to use the hotspots I connect to regularly.

As I use these hotspots most weeks throughout the year, I was able to directly compare the performance of the BT Wifi Dongle 300 with that of my netbook and was surprised to find 3-4-bar reception instead of the usual weak 1-2-bar reception I've found via the netbook (which keeps dropping the connection) and better than the 2-3 bar reception on my phone. Very impressive.

Even better, during the 3 days of testing in dull, cloudy...

Don't be fooled by bad reviews
Rated 5/5 by Keith Buckley on 12 Feb. 2014

I'll be honest, I am confused by the other reviews, it sounds like it wont work due to human error.

I bought 2, one for me the other for my 91 year old grandad, we both had it working in seconds, yes it quite literally works the moment you plug it in, so why other people are saying its a struggle to set up is way beyond me. As for the size, it is not too big at all, quite handy, but it is sizable due to the fact it is a 600bps dongle, so there is more tech inside of it, if you want smaller get smaller by getting a 300bps dongle instead.

Windows 7 and 8 it works the moment you plug it in, you can use the CD (which is so simple to follow) if you want, but dont have to.

Windows Vista and below of course you will have issues, you will have issues with any modern tech so dont go blaming the hardware.

PROS:

Fast as heck! Super simple to install (just plug it in), cheap especially for a 600bps 5G dongle, solid build

CONS:...

Fast, but prone to crashing your PC
Rated 3/5 by N. Coburn on 17 Oct. 2014

I have one of these but using it with a non BT router

It is a very good dongle 'when' it is working, with fast tramission speed du to it's N900 (AC) configuration, when it is working correctly you don't notice it or have to do anything with it, but there are some issues

1st the inbuilt driver often does not install correctly and you will have to download it from the web, not a big deal, however if you no other PC and cannot run a cable to your PC how are you supposed to download the driver, minor issue but could be annoying especially for those who are not so computer literate.

2nd and this is the most annoying for me, the driver is unstable on a Windows 7 x64 PC (I haven't tried it on other versions) a lot of times you will start your PC and the dongle won't start, you have to unplug it from teh system and then reinsert back into the USB socket, it will then start again, this is annoying but it is worse when it crashes while you surfing the web, it...
