Summary
The ANEWKODI 300M was easy to setup and get working quickly and easily at least with Windows 10.

Windows found the Drivers with no need to go through any set up.

It also maxed out my internet connection with no problems.

It does only work in the 2.4Ghz range and not the new 5GHz band, It also does not work with the new 802.11ac.

Most will not need a wireless dongle with the new 802.11ac protocols and simply want a cheap low-cost unit that works.
