      Solved problem of elderly windows 7 HP laptop which could not communicate with Virgin Media router at 5GHz. Previously internet speed was much slower than Virgin Media's stated "up to" speed of 100Mb/s. This USB network adaptor enabled communication at much nearer the advertised speed.
      A recent windows update (September 2017) with the adaptor in place caused the computer to malfunction on restart.
      Problem solved eventually by removing adaptor and reinstalling adaptor software after a successful restart.
      If this experience is typical then adaptor not the best acquisition for those who are less computer savvy.
