TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, today announced its new Wireless N "Nano" USB Adapter (TL-WN725N). The 150Mbps speed makes the Nano Adapter ideal for everyday use including web browsing, file sharing and video streaming.

This tiny (0.73 x 0.59 x 0.28 inches) adapter packs a big punch and enables users to connect either a desktop or a laptop computer to a Wireless N network at speeds of up to 150Mbps. With its miniature size and sleek design, this adapter can be plugged in to a USB port permanently, without the worry of blocking adjacent USB ports or get in the way when you put your laptop into the suitcase.

i've seen a few other brands with adaptors like these, probably a rebadge.


they work, but range is limited. good option for short distance wifi, or replacing broken wifi in a laptop (or upgrading from wifi G)

This is what I fear also. put a wall between the two wifi devices and speeds drop (insert value between 10 to 50 here) %. Not enough Wattage behind the signal so to speak.

Hey Wizz! Review pls :)
