The ASUS WL-167G V3 is a compact yet powerful wireless USB adapter. To take full advantage of your router and to remove some cable clutter, you can just plug-in and start using this adapter.
Setting up this WLAN adapter wonâ€™t take much time. It comes with adjustable USB extension cable which youâ€™ll need to plug to Wireless adapter. Connect it to any one of the USB port on your computer and let it install the drivers on its own. Depending on your operating system, youâ€™ll need to install the drivers for that OS. Thatâ€™s all you need to do and then as you have observed in laptops, the same way you can see the Wireless Network Connection (showing bars) in your Windows taskbar.
This is a 802.11b/g/n adapter which means you wonâ€™t face any compatibility issues. Also it doesnâ€™t mean that this can be only used on desktop only, you can plug this in any laptop also just in case your laptop's WiFi is not working. Thanks to the adjustable USB extension cable, you can adjust this adapter to any position where you get better signal. To check signal strength, you can observe the bars in your WiFi icon, as you do normally in laptops and thereâ€™s no other way to check signal strength.
