Vastly improved detection of and connection to wifi hotspots
Rated 5/5 by 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...

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...

Bring wireless AC speed to an older device with this handy small dongle
Rated 4/5 by Vinman666 on 17 Jan. 2015

The BT 610 wi-fi dongle gives you wireless AC connectivity to faster broadband routers such as BT's own Home Hub 5 device, and is compatible with other manufacturer's devices.

Up until I got one of these I'd been using a BT 900 dongle to get AC wi-fi speeds on an older laptop. The image I've uploaded shows the difference between the two - the 900 is a much bigger device and is always in danger of being accidentally knocked when sticking out the side or back of a laptop. Once the protective cap is removed and it's plugged into a USB port, the 610 is much less intrusive. However the BT packaging is far too big and a real waste of cardboard.

The instructions advise not to plug it in until you have navigated to a specific BT webpage, which of course means you already need to have internet connectivity on your chosen device. Once you get to the page you can plug in the 610 and the correct driver should be installed automatically. In my case this didn't work but there...
