AMAZING Wireless USB Adapter
By BHAVUK SAXENAon
Please note that this review is quite big but may resolve all your minor problems regarding to this device. So please do give some time to read it till the end.
NOTE: I recently came across a few reviews saying that version 2.0 is being sold in the name of v 1.0 and v 2.0 which is not at all good. Please ensure that you get the correct version because I had brought this product long ago, so I don't have much idea about that. Thanks:)
I ordered my product on 13-04-14 and was promised to have been delivered till 16-04-14 by WS Retail but the product was actually delivered on 19-04-14. This was my first purchase from flipkart and I expected somewhat better from flipkart. So a little disappointed from flipkart. However, packing was great as expected.Talking about the product, after doing detailed analysis about the product, i must say that the product is simply AMAZING and I think that I couldn't have got any better at this price. It is a good value for the money.
In the Box:-
TP-LINK 150Mbps High Gain Wireless USB Adapter TL-WN722N
Quick Installation Guide
Really HIGH GAIN Wireless USB Adapter
Looks sober and simple
No connection drops observed (till 3rd day of usage)
Best in price
Good Customer Satisfaction Service from TP-LINK
Drivers are installed automatically from the mini CD provided
A little too big
Always search (unnecessarily) for a wifi device/hot spot in spite of being connected to network through wi-fi (disadvantage for laptop users as it may drain some battery)
Due to negligible cons, i am giving five star RATING to this TP-LINK 150Mbps High Gain Wireless USB Adapter
IMPORTANT NOTE- It is important to mention that a drop in connection may be expected if you connect the wi-fi via Network and Sharing Center of Windows 7. So, it is recommended to make use of TP-LINK Wireless Configuration Utility Application that is installed when the drivers are being installed using Mini-CD that we get with the adapter in the box.
I'd like to add any further pros or cons if I observe them. Lastly, i'd like to request you to mark my review helpful if you really find it helpful.
EDIT: I have been using the device from past 20 days and have not faced even a single problem pertaining to this device.You'll be happy to know that I have found all solutions to the minor irritating problems and have therefore decided to share it with all.
First is regarding repeated searching of wi-fi device in its range. If it happens to you too and you don't know the solution then the solution is to simply close the utility instead of minimising it.This will allow you to remain connected to internet and the utility or device will not search for any wi-fi device automatically till you reopen the utility to disconnect from the internet. This is the only solution to the given problem which may help saving battery (in laptop) and hence making the computer remain less strained due to less no. of running applications.
The second annoying thing which I observed after giving reviews was that sometimes, active window defocuses when the utility is open e.g while typing or doing something, active window will defocus hence interrupting you from your work . You'll be happy to know that the solution to this problem is also the same.Window defocuses only because the utility keeps searching for wi-fi devices and when you press any key on keyboard which you are doing on the tp link utility which becomes active due to search of new wi-fi device in the range. Due to this, the connection may disconnect because the key pressed actually operates on the tp link utility.So, the solution to this problem is also the same i.e. just close the utility instead of minimising it.
I hope you would have liked the solution and if you would like to motivate me for giving any such useful updates even further, then please mark my comment helpful.
Thanks to those kind hearted people who have already marked it helpful.
Thanks and Good Bye...

By Sandeep Sethion
I've been using this product since a long time now and want to say its a great product. The connection is very fast which helps you for fast browsing. You can also share files from Shareit or Xender app to your computer within seconds.Create hotspot in your phone and insert this into your pc or laptop and enjoy secure browsing.As it is very small in size I stay put every time in my pc.Buy it without a doubt.
Works well with Windows® 10™
By Rushi Swamion
First of all,-Size is Soooo small that you'd not even see it once you've attached it on your PC-Built is great-Range is good enough but limited to 8-10 ft as far as I've checked it.-Softwere from the website lets you create a hotspot from your PC and that helped me to transfer files wirelessly from my Android phone as fast as with wire or even faster-Speed is great-Got it at discounted price on Amazon-Recommended to 2 of my friends? and they're already using it with no issues so farI've been using it for last 7 months...Ps. I didn't want to review it in hurry
Great Product - installer shipped on a mini-CD - beware
By Abhijit Kolhatkaron
The product works without any issues. Please note, they still ship a mini-CD with driver install. Given most PCs do not ship with a CD drive, installation is not so smooth. The drivers are available for download, but given you are using this product to get internet connection, requires you to have another PC handy to download and copy the installer to a pen drive.
better prefer other brands
It was okay until Windows7. But when i moved on to Windows 10, frequently drops Wifi connections. Checked their site, they do not have proper drivers for Windows10 64-bit. If you have windows 10, better prefer other brands.
By Manas H.on
As compared to others, it is much cheaper but not cheap in quality.The USB male part is very textile unlike others in this price range. The black portion is covered by a thin layer of plastic like material making it shiny and enhancing the build quality. It comes equipped with a CD with its drivers and software. The software can be used as a wifi control panel and the UI of the software is actually a quite old school but good. It comes with user manuals with helpline numbers for different countries. The gold plated USB part with the company's branding embedded looks very good.
Good very usefull
This is good USB WI FI Adaptor for a PC.
By Aditya Sarangon
I used this WiFi adoptor from three months and I liked it . Nice work WI FI usb...
IT'S V2 NOT V1 version.
IT'S V2 NOT the V1 version of the product.Kali Linux does not support it.Don't buy if you want to use on Kali Linux as its chipset does not support packet injection but good for normal use on pc or mac.
TP Link WN722N V2 please note.
I bought the adapter from snapdeal few days back and got it delivered today .As per reviews on other store all of them was providing v2 of this adapter.So after watching the product review on the snapdeal i bought the adapter as no one complained about getting the v2. Today after opening the external package i checked the adapter version written down side of the box and unluckyly it was v2, so there was no need to open the seal.Today itself i applied for return for the package without hampering the box.
Note :- customers who are looking for this adapter for kali linux and pentesting this is not the adapter which will work because it is v2 and has realtek
Chipset which is not supported
On linux .For normal use go for it.
Snapdeal please update the catalogue description with version number.
