The 300M Mini is a very small low-cost WiFi adapter that works with Windows and Macs.
The small size makes it good as a quick fix for a laptop with a broken internal WiFi card, or with a desktop as a quick wireless solution.
Protocols: Wireless-N, G
Frequency: 2.4 GHz
Rated Speed: 300Mbps
Compatibility: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Mac 10.7 to 10.10.
Next we tested it with a Windows 7 desktop which needed the drivers installed from the CD, after which it worked good.
Next we copied a large file from one computer to another using the NET-DYN 300M on our internal network.
The last test we used Iperf3 which is a network performance speed tester.
So far in testing the NET-DYN 300M has worked very well across different operating systems.
It is a Wireless-N 2.4 GHz USB 2.0 dongle so its not going to break any speed records, but is a good unit for those looking for a good low cost wireless adapter.

There are many USB wireless adapters available from very fast and newest WiFi protocols to low-cost budget units.
While most will want the fastest dongle available often it does not match their internet provider speeds. For example a home that has a 50Mbps download speed will have no real need of a WiFi dongle that can run at 200Mbps.
Of course, if many files are being copied about on a internal network than a faster more expensive adapter may be better.
The size of a dongles antenna can also effect the outcome since it will have better range, often small units will not have the best range and may be something to consider when looking for a external wireless USB adapter.
Most small units will have the same range as a laptops built-in WiFi although this can vary from unit-to-unit.
Small dongles are a good cheap option when the internal WiFi has gone bad on a laptop. They also are good to quickly add wireless to a desktop on the cheap.
As always be sure to read the review in Amazon, here, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
