Added a TP-LINK Mini N300 USB Wireless Adaptor

Postby jessnuman » December 12th, 2015, 11:06 am

I bought one of these ( TP-LINK Mini N300 USB Wireless Adaptor) and disabled the internal wifi on my linx 1010b.
Only £5 -6 on Amazon and £8.99 in Argos.
It connects at much higher speeds (144 mbps with my sky hub) and has great wifi range, get about half speed 100 feet down the garden.
No sleep issues and no dropouts.
Would recommend, it sits fine in one of the usb sockets and plenty of room to use the usb next to it.
Just plug and play with windows 10.
It does have a wps button, but I do not use that.
Shame the internal wifi adaptor is so poor, but this easily solves the problems.

I've found nothing wrong with the built-in adapter, no dropouts, and no sleep issues. I've let Windows handle all drivers automatically.

After buying the 1010 a week ago and reinstalling the OS, I've just about had enough of the tablet with the WiFi problems. Tried other drivers but it still drops out. Think ill try the WiFi adaptor now. I've already had thoughts of going back to android or ios. A shame as I've surprised myself in liking windows 10

I've got one of these on my desktop and it's rock solid.

WiFi on my Linx is currently fairly stable on the You need to be registered to view this link, please log-in or register but love the device so would probably get one of these rather than give up on the tablet!
