I thought when my Apple Macbook aluminium's (5,1) wifi hardware is a goner, the only way to get internet connection is through a wired access on a router, or through a personal hotspot using my iPhone (it's expensive mind you!). This Edimax product makes my situation more convenient. Moreover, through a problem with a desktop CPU that I have been working without wifi hardware, a wifi dongle is the next best solution and found out that Edimax has such a peripheral. While using it, I found out that it's a little bit slow in connecting and getting that wifi signal--but it still connects somehow. By the way, please update your printout guide and PDF guide--the latter has more complete information. Thanks Edimax and Amazon for a wonderful product!
