    The adapter is of good quality and has a better price than the other option on Amazon. The USB cord is heavy and thick, so it may easily drag the cradle around. I used a velcro tape to secure it on the table. The install process is easy and now I have strong and wide bandwidth at 6 GHz on my Dell XPS 9520, which claims to have a WiFi 6E capable adapter but only recognizes 5 GHz bands.

    Good signal, decent speed. Far better then the internal wireless card in my laptop.

    A few warnings though: The adapter is rather large. If you only have 2 side by side USB ports it effectively blocks the second one where you cannot insert a plug. It has to be connected with the provided cable. BAD DESIGN!

    The cable is not very flexible. You move the laptop and you also move the base and antenna, quite often onto the floor. Might be a good idea to secure the base to the table. Alternately, use a short cable and no base. Tape or hot glue the adapter to the side of the laptop lid or keyboard.

    If you have a Linux laptop or desktop, installation is extremely difficult. The manual is no help. There is no installer software. The drivers must be installed by command line/terminal. It took me several hours and quite a few tries to come up with the right combination of commands and I’m a retired PC tech!!! This stems from the hundreds of Linux distributions…all slightly different commands required. Goggle won’t be much help.

    Must be installed using the install.sh file, supplied in the tar.gz.zip file you download from MSI.com. Once this is achieved, it takes 10-15 minutes to load the various drivers, then another 10 minutes for the MAKE FILE to complete. Reboot. When done, it runs with your installed network software.

    I would STRONGLY suggest that you have a good knowledge of how the Linux command line/terminal works if you attempt installing it yourself. Or find a friend who does…maybe a PC shop.

    That said, once installed, it’s easy to set up and works flawlessly. I’m quite satisfied even tho it was a PITA to install.

    In 2020, I purchased a USB WiFi adapter on a lightning deal for just $6. I plugged it in, Windows found a driver, and it worked. I would turn on my PC, and it would be connected to the internet within seconds of me logging in. I thought I’d get an upgrade when I bought this MSI AX1800 USB Adapter, but that wasn’t the case.

    At first glance, it looked great! Sleek MSI design, unusually large, but fit in a USB 3 port without blocking anything else. That’s a star to me. Unlike other USB WiFi adapters I’ve purchased before, I found no included drivers in the box, there were no drivers included in the form of a USB, a CD Drive, or included on the device in some other way. Instead, the manual states to go online and download the driver. Minor inconvenience, but since I had my old WiFi adapter, this was no big deal to me. However, if I did not already have a USB WiFi Adapter, I’d need to pull out a laptop and an old USB to transfer the driver files to the computer I used this with.

    As for performance, upon removing the old network driver, plugging in the new MSI AX1800 USB WiFi Adapter into the same USB 3 port I had been using with my old USB WiFi adapter, and then using a new driver, which I downloaded from MSI’s website, unfortunately, the performance was actually worse than my old $6 USB WiFi Adapter I bought in 2020. In addition to this, after completely shutting down my computer and turning it on again, the MSI USB WiFi Adapter would take a noticeable amount of time to connect. I would also like to note that I do, in fact, also own a WiFi 6 router. When I had the old adapter plugged in, the old WiFi adapter would be ready and connected in seconds, this MSI WiFi Adapter would be stuck connecting for a while. When it did connect, well, it worked, but, it does not work as well as my old WiFi adapter. It does connect to the internet though, so, I guess that’s another star for…functioning? Anyway, I don’t know if I got a defective WiFi Adapter, or if the driver is at fault, but, I’m not going to wait on an exchange or a new driver to find out. I am returning this and finding something else.

    I recently picked up the MSI AXE5400 WiFi 6E USB Adapter, and it’s been a game-changer for my setup. The installation was a breeze – I just plugged it in, and I was ready to go.

    Since using this adapter, I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my internet speeds and overall connectivity. Even in areas of my house where the signal was weak, I now have a stable connection, which has made a huge difference in my online gaming and streaming experiences.

    Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the MSI AXE5400 WiFi 6E USB Adapter. It’s made a noticeable difference in my daily internet use, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade their wireless setup.

    Adapter works well on my Window 10 machine. I had trouble printing as my PC could not reach the printer when printing a document but could connect to it directly (weird) I called tech support who told me to contact the printer manufacturer! Strange response as the printer has no trouble connecting to the network. In any case, I removed all other devices from my PC, reinstalled the adapter software an it printed fine. I re-installed other devices on my PC and printing is still working well. Not sure why all that mattered it seemed to work. Also, very strange…. I logically (not physically) disconnect my router from my PC when I shut my PC down and when I reboot my PC and reconnect the adapter (logically) it disconnects (!?!), I have to reconnect it again (logically) and it connects fine. Hope this all makes sense.

    If you are thinking about this product, buy it! I have never had such fast internet before! I have had multiple wifi adapters and they have all been “meh”. I bought this product because my cat chewed through my other one and was hesitant about the price and due to experience with other adapters, but wow! Please note that you will need an internet connection to download the driver as it doesn’t come on the adapter itself. Don’t listen to other people who say it was hard to get it working it’s super simple even for someone who isn’t techy like me. I’ll break down how I got it to work.
    Step 1: Plug in adapter
    Step 2: Go to MSI website and download driver
    Step 3: Save driver folder to desktop
    Step 4: Open folder until you see the photo I have attached and open the file I have circled and it will open up a install screen
    Step 5: complete the tasks on install screen and boom! You have ridiculously fast internet!
    Thank you MSI for a fantastic product!

    I was just using a USB 2.0 dongle to connect to the internet and while it somewhat worked, it was not consistent but I don’t do gaming much so not really a problem but recently I start to do on line gaming
    After research, I landed on this card. It took less than 10 minutes to install and it worked right away! I can now do my gaming with no problem at all and the internet connection is so much stronger. I also love that it comes with Bluetooth connection now so it is super easy to connect my wireless headphones. playing game with my headset with the lighting speed! can not ask more !

    Definitely happy with the purchase!
