My WiFi on my laptop isn't the greatest on my laptop so when I received the Kinivo WID380 Wireless 300MBPS Enhanced USB Adapter I coudn't wait to try it out on my laptop.

It is easy to install.   You plug it in USB and the little install window pops up or if it doesn't pop up you just pop the little installation CD in you cd/dvd drive and the installation window will pop up and then you just need to read the instruction as to what to do.

Right after the installation was complete I tried watching a video on youtube .Most of the time without this little dongle the videos have been slow to load but I found that with the
Kinivo WID380 Wireless 300MBPS Enhanced USB Adapter the videos are a bit faster to load up. I then tried to download something and sure enough it took less time to download than it would usually.

I noticed the signal strength has been higher even when take my laptop outside on the patio .

I highly recommend this.

I give this 5 out of 5
