Used the included Linux driver installation with Linux Mint and it worked as advertised. As a bonus the driver also supported a different Realtek chip based USB 2.0 802.11AC adapter I already had. This is worth the price for the Linux driver alone. It brings my old laptop's wifi up to modern useable speed standards.
I bought this product last week. It was delivered very quickly! (I live in France).
I use it with Kali Linux, to work on wireless devices, packets injection...
The Antenna works well, it detects most Wi-Fi acces or PA. The monitor mode is available with this antenna.
I used this gitHub to download the driver :https://github.com/morrownr/8821cu as I had some issues wirth the version of my Linux Kernel and the headers.
I hope this product will be highly durable.
Recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 on my computer but was not going to be able to keep it plugged in to an Ethernet port. I have had trouble installing drivers on older versions of Ubuntu so I was very careful in selecting a WiFi adapter; finally settled on BrosTrend AC650. Boy was I NOT disappointed! Product works as described but the beauty of it was the installation instructions. They are carefully written with thoughtful anticipation for anything you might experience during installation. I patiently watched the software running on the Terminal and was happy to see it attempt workarounds during file retrieval to guarantee success. Very cool, thanks BrosTrend!
The BrosTrend 650Mbps Linux WiFi Adapter works very well once set up. After reading the description of the adapter, I believed that it would be a simple plug and play installation. However, the installation required that the computer had to be connected to the router by ethernet cable connection in order to download and install the Ubuntu drivers. As I was installing this computer away from the router this made the installation far more complicated than I was expecting.
I had to give Tech Support 2 stars and ease of installation 2 stars as well, but 5 stars to value for the money and for the device itself. I purchased this to give an old laptop running Linux a 5G WiFi connection. While it's been a few weeks/months since I purchased this and set it up, the biggest thing I remember was my inability to locate the right driver for the first 3-4 days after it arrived (I spent several evenings in the search). The device came with a mini-CD (not many CD drives can handle these). I wasted the first few days trying to find a driver online. Then I tried the mini-CD using another PC. I honestly no longer recall whether I was able to find something online or get the driver off the mini-CD. But, eventually, after a few days, I eventually resolved my issues and got the right driver installed after searching and experimenting. As a caution to those considering the device, make sure the Linux distro you are using is supported. I have multiple Linux distros on that particular laptop that I can boot up. Fortunately, the one I use the most often is supported, but one of them was not at the time I set this up.
