Next, we tested it with a Windows 11 desktop, which needed the drivers installed, and it worked well.

Next, we copied a large file from one computer to another using the NET-DYN 300M on our internal network.

For the last test, we used Iperf3, which is a network performance speed tester.

It gave us 82.3 Mbits per a second throughput using the default TCP settings.

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 it’s not going to break any speed records, but it 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’s speeds. For example, a home that has a 50Mbps download speed will have no real need for a WiFi dongle that can run at 200Mbps.

Of course, if many files are being copied about on an internal network, then a faster, more expensive adapter may be better.

The size of a dongle’s antenna can also affect the outcome since it will have better range; often, small units will not have the best range, and this may be something to consider when looking for an external wireless USB adapter.

Most small units will have the same range as a laptop’s 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.
