Signal is very strong, haven't had any issues with it on 2.4 or 5ghz. The cable is a bit short so you will have to keep it close to your computer, or just get a longer USB to micro-USB cable.
This tiny adapter provides an excellent connection to my 5GHz three steam router. This is the first time I haven't felt handicapped by my wireless connection. Nice, stable, and fast connection. This is now my go-to adapter for client's needing wireless on their desktop.
I bought this along with a cisco dual band EA3500 router which supports 450mbps connection. The speed is amazing. Wired connection was not an option where I live, so I had to go wireless without losing too much performance. I have to say this wireless setup is by far the best I tried. Blazing fast network streaming, downloading and even gaming. I tried a PCIe network card and another usb adapter, but it doesn't match the TrendNet Adapter!
This adapter is a shrink version of the TEW-687GA, except it is for Windows machines only while the 687GA will work with any Ethernet port of any devices. User has the option of installing the Trendnet software or driver only. I have noticed of no performance difference so just kept the driver. Like its bigger brother, it is picky on its placement due to the built-in antenna. It works best with either side facing the router, but must be fine-tuned while transferring data for highest throughout, and the difference can be huge. I was able to obtain max ~124Mbps when mated with the TEW-691GR router, but mostly 80Mbps in my room one floor up. The 687GA is pretty much the same, and maybe slightly better and less picky. Still, it outperforms the TL-WN822N by about 20Mbps for the same environment. It does get a little warm while the 822N doesn't.
