WS Review Product Description


You finally got your WiFi all setup. So you run to your laptop, hop in your favorite chair, get extra comfortable, and go to connect.

"No networks found!"

What? You JUST tested it! So you get up, and walk over to the router... uh oh. Your laptop can only pick it up from literally just a few feet away!

You don't want move EVERYTHING to fix a weak connection, do you?!

How about travel? That's why you got a laptop in the first place! Then you spent the extra time finding that hotel or coffee shop with "FREE WIFI!"

Great, right? Except its not. Because you got stuck in the room that can TECHNICALLY locate the WiFi... but it won't connect. You see it staring right at you on your screen but you can't even use it!

You're JUUUUUUUUUUUST out of range.

And the coffee shop is no different, unless you're sitting in just the right seat, you get NOTHING! Why'd you even BOTHER trying wireless, right?


If you think you can get this kinda power without this adapter, you're NUTS!

Most connections can barely make it 20 feet! And when you throw a wall or two into the mix... you're talking even less!

And even if you DO connect... your current adapter is probably 54MBps.

That's almost a QUARTER of the maximum possible speeds that this one can achieve!

This can detect up to just over an ENTIRE mile away! I've NEVER seen so much power in such a little adapter!

It's as simple as it seems: your laptop or computer don't have big, powerful antennas.

This does.

In fact... it has TWO of them! And they're not just ordinary run of the mill antennas either, they're high-powered, high gain ones!

It's so easy to use, too!

Just plug it into any available USB port! That's really all there is to it!

Oh, and if you think two antennas is all this bad boy is packing, you're WRONG!

It uses MIMO technology! Think of it like the network version of a brand new turbo engine in your car!

See, MIMO uses both antennas at once to split the workload! Without getting into all the big words and technical stuff, MIMO = more data can get through at higher speeds.

And I NEVER forget security!

Look at this, you get EVERYTHING to make sure your wireless is encrypted!

WEP (64/128/256-bit)

With this adapter, you never have to worry about prying eyes!

That's a LOT of security built right in! You don't have to think about it for a second!

I've seen similar devices like this go for nearly $50!

And THOSE ones are big radar-dish lookin' things that you DEFINITELY can't bring along with you!

This one is small enough for travel, perfect for home, and IT'S ONLY $48.97 with FREE US SHIPPING!

Talk about a perfect solution to one of the MOST common complaints with Internet!
