I currently have this adapter
https://www.aztech.com/prod_lan_wl230usb.html

But where i am using it, in a hotel room for some unknown reason, the signal display at very low. So I am wondering, if i get this device will the signal improve

https://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProdu...duct_Id=179211

From what i can see, the aztech being at 60 metres while the belkin goes at 100+ meters. Will i see a noticeable difference in wireless reception signal by changing to a longer range USB wireless adapter

Thanks

Hi Jarod,

Check the website and see if there are updated drivers for the aztech wireless USB adapter. See if the wireless signal improves by updating the drivers. Hope this will help you out.

Well, any of those thumb-sized wireless adapters will have pretty weak performance. If you really need range, you need a better adapter with a real antenna.

Well, you can have cheap, or you can have good, your choice.
