    Any Window 10 drivers?
    A shopper on Aug 3, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes this unit is truly plug-in play. Takes less than 30 seconds to fully install itself and works almost as well as on board adapters.
    will this work for the sony bravia tv?

    Driver download
    Chipset is Realtek RTL8192CU

    Download link:


    PROS: Works well once installed

    CONS: Dual band would be nice, but Monoprice does not offer any dual band devices. Drivers didn't install automatically on every machine I tried. Some worked, but not others, oddly enough. Drivers were not readily available on Monoprice website. Found a download link only after contacting support and having them do some serious digging.

    Nearly impossible installation
    I'll upgrade my previous rating of '1' to a '4'. Sub-par support. Very disappointing.

    This is very wide. It can't fit in the back next to a VGA connector. I had to rearrange USB devices and can only install it by blocking an adjacent USB port. Smaller is better...and this ain't it. An USB hub or extension cord is required if you only have one port open, or if you are in tight quarters.

    Poor out-of-box experience with this. No drivers. No links on Monoprice's web site. Tech support gave an incorrect link to the manufacturer's web site. Had to start a second session with another rep to get the actual Realtek model number so I could download the driver myself. A real waste of time, and makes me think poorly of Monoprice as a supplier and a brand.

    This is a re-brand of Realtek RTL8192CU. Link for drivers is here: Downloads Communications Network ICs Wireless LAN ICs WLAN NIC / IEEE 802.11b/g/n Single-Chip Software RTL8192CU (click 'go')


    You'll find Windows XP, Vista, 7, & 8 drivers, as well as Linux kernels 2.6.18-2.6.38 & 3.0.8 and Mac OSX 10.4-10.8.

    I really wish Monoprice would provide the drivers, or at least educate tech support on how to give the correct drivers to customers. I read through many of the counter-posts in this review section. Seems like "Monoprice Administrator" is pushing the tech support back onto the customer by asking us to try different ports, different OS, and even trying different computers in order to make an $11 NIC work properly.

    A simple, quick link to the drivers is free. It boggles the mind why a company would hide that info from paying customers, and require a tech support chat session....or two.

    PROS: Cheap.

    CONS: Blocks other ports.
    Not "plug and play". No drivers.
    No support info available without multiple tech support chat sessions.
    Requires existing internet connection or a second computer + SneakerNet to install.

    Response from Monoprice
    After moving to another computer (and downloading the wrong drivers from Monoprice again...thanks for the BSOD)...this adapter gets 5Mbps/0.37Mbps up, at a distance of 8 ft and "130Mbps" connection reported by the NIC.<br /><br />I have no idea why I still have this in my possession. It's trash.

    Monoprice Administrator

    PROS: Windows 8.1 installed the driver automatically.

    CONS: Incredibly slow (0.27 Mbps down, 0.16 up). I tried 3 different computers (including 1 running win 7) and 3 different drivers on each one.

    No joy.

    Much slower than my G connection.

    I would not recommend this product.

    Works, but difficult to setup
    Like a young kid, I ripped into the packaging and then proceded to insert the USB stick directly into the computer (HP i5 Desktop running Windows 7) hoping it would automatically recognize and just start working. Wrong, wrong, wrong! This is one of those that you MUST read the directions on. However, even after reading and following the directions, it still did not work. Mind you, my tech level is pretty high, I've worked in IT for more than 20 yrs. The software on the mini-cd offers 4 different choices for the installation, and I tried all 4, but none seemed to do the trick. I even tried manually installing and having Windows search for the drivers on the CD, which it found, but still would not work. Finally, I plugged the PC back in to a hard wired connection and then had it search for drivers on the Internet, which seemed to do the trick.
    This truly seems to be one of those cases of "you get what you pay for". I still love Monoprice, but this was one of the least satisfying purchases I've made from here.

    PROS: Get what you pay for.

    CONS: Very Difficult to setup.

    Works well with WD Live Hub
    Works as described and I'm quite pleased my WD Live Hub get along with it since I hear they can be picky when it comes to USB wireless devices.
    Thanks again MonoPrice.

    PROS: Setup was a snap and its working quite well with my WD Live Hub.

    CONS: None that I can tell.

    Connection ranges from 15mbps to 120mbps with transfer rate of 1-3MB/s where the older N150 card connected at 150mbps and transferred data from my gigabit NAS at 7-9MB/s. The other card 8076 connects at 270mbps and transfers at 8-12MB/s. Updating the drivers didn't made a difference in Windows 7 and 8

    PROS: It connects and its cheap

    CONS: Item 6148 USB Wireless Lan 802.11N 1T1R Adapter with Antenna was 1000 times better. Pretty normal range, signal quality is horrible.

    excellent price killer product
    These mono price USB wireless N adapters are great everywhere else I looked for a similar device they wanted $89 Install is a breeze on any windows machine or Mac. Linux is a little tougher but can be done. When we first got our gigabit router i was told that any device attached to the network that couldnt handle N speed would drop the speed of the network to what that device could handle. So I looked aroud for wireless N USB adapters to give our older laptops a leg up and keep our gigabit network running as fast as it could. again the price on these cant be beat and they work very well!

    PROS: Low price
    works great
    gives older devices wireless N capabilities
    works on Windows, Mac and Linux

    CONS: tough to install on linux

    Must have product.
    I initially rated poorly this product because the one that was delivered to me had manufacturing malfunction. After contacting the customer service, I quickly receive another device which works pretty well this time. This a great product that just works out of the box and provides increased wireless range to your PCs.
    And did I mention hat Monoprice customer and technical services are among the best I ever have to deal with? Great job guys.

    PROS: Easy setup
    Great wireless coverage

    CONS: will be nice if it was smaller
    November 17, 2011
    works as expected

    PROS: came with drivers on CD

    CONS: no windows default drivers

    kind of bulky for direct USB plugin, I needed to use a USB extension cable

    Great price but a poor performer. Went back to my netgear USB adapter

    PROS: None

    CONS: Keeps dropping signal and only 20 feet from monoprice router. Worked better linksys switch router
