1. TENDA TE-W311MI

Tenda is one of the best brands in producing networking devices for us. it produces many different networking devices like routers, WiFi adapters, repeaters, etc. that’s why I added this USB WiFi adapter of tenda which is “tenda te-w311mi” which is best in almost all aspects if we talk about its size then I can say that it is one of the smallest USB WiFi adapter available in the market with powerful specs. I already mentioned all the features below of this USB wifi adapter for you. Take a look at that and then you can easily get to know whether it is worth it for you or not.

Best usb wifi adapter for pc
  • The chipset is integrated with Wireless n technology with 2.4Ghz wireless speeds of up to 150mbps and I think this is best at this price you can’t get more than 150 Mbps at this price with a known brand.
  • It comes with WPA/WPA2 security which provides better security connections. Yes, it is outdated.
  • Design is one of the best features of this Device. It has an Ultra-compact design and is nearly invisible when you insert it into the PC. The dimension of the Device is 19.05 x 1.27 x 11.43 cm.

2. TP-Link TL-WN722N

Now here is TL-WN722N which is produced by TP-Link one of the top network device manufacturers in India. Now, this wifi adapter is best because of the brand but the size of this adapter is big, and sometimes that big size becomes a disadvantage for users. Yes, it has a feature with the WPS button on it. It comes with an antenna in it which is useful for extending the range of the adapter.

This adapter is one of the famous adapters among these because it is mostly used for hacking purposes. People are confused that some of its units are supporting wifi hacking and some are not. So, let me clear this wifi adapter has three or maybe four different versions in the market version 1 support wifi hacking but version 2,3 and 4 didn’t support wifi hacking so if you want to buy it for wifi hacking then check this before buying it. Now below I am mentioning some of the best and worst points of this wifi adapter.

  • 3dBi external antenna. It has an antenna that is detachable.
  • WPS Button is now the second-best feature you get in it which helps you to easily connect to WPS enabled encrypted network.
  • It comes with a 3-year manufacturing warranty which is best.
  • The maximum speed supported by this wifi adapter is 150Mbps which is not that good. So if speed is not your priority then you can go for this wifi adapter.

3. D-Link DWA-131

D-Link is also one of the best brands among these in the market that’s why I selected this in the list. it comes with a small compact design. This adapter supports wireless N. Installation is also so easy it comes with just plug and plays option. Now the best thing about this adapter is that it supports speeds up to 300Mbps at this price. It uses smart antenna technology. Now as usual below I mentioned some of the best features of this adapter.

  • Supports Maximum speeds up to 300Mbps which is the best thing I can say because at this price range no other recognizable brand provides this much speed in any wifi adapter.
  • The small and compact design looks good.
  • It has a smart antenna feature that transmits the network to a large area without an external antenna.

4. TP-Link TL-WN821N

TP-Link TL-WN821N comes with the brand Tp-Link. It is almost same as TP-Link TL-WN722N the features in both adapters are almost same but some of the features are different also. The main difference is that it comes without an antenna but yes it supports more speed than TP-Link TL-WN722N. It supports 300Mbps without an antenna that’s why it is more reliable than TP-Link TL-WN722N. Below are some of the best features if available.

  • Supports speeds up to 300Mbps which is best and we can use this adapter for streaming, gaming and many more with this speed supports.
  • Comes with a WPS button which helps us to connect to WPS security-enabled wifi network easily.

5. Leoxsys LEO-HG150N

In this list here is one of the adapters which supports packet injection or monitoring mode for wifi hacking in kali Linux but yes if we talk about the brand then I never heard of this brand before but the reason why I added this adapter to this list because it supports monitoring mode and packet injection which many people finding.

The brand is Leoxsys which is a Chinese brand that’s why I can’t recommend you this because we can’t say how much time it will work and also there is no service center for this adapter in India. Yes, if I focus on the features then also I didn’t find any of best features which make this adapter looks better than other. That’s why I can’t recommend this to anyone but yes if you want a wifi adapter for wifi hacking then you can go for it. The price is a little bit higher but yes if it works then it is worth it.

Below are some of the main features of this wifi adapter I mentioned below.

  • It has an external antenna which provides more network coverage for us and also it is a 3dBi rotatable antenna which provides more stability in the connections.
  • Speeds supported by this Wi-Fi adapter are about 150Mbps.

6. Terabyte 500Mbps Mini Wireless

It is one of the worst USB adapters for high-quality use because it is produced by a local company in the market but the main reason why I added this adapter is that it comes with a very low price in the market and normally works for you. It comes in around 200-300 INR you can check the price in the table which is mentioned in the top of this page.

The company mentioned that it can support up to 500Mbpbs but I don’t think that this is right because I used this adapter earlier and it doesn’t support 500Mbps yes it will support all the operating systems it can work in both windows and Linux both. It comes in a small size which is very portable for use. Now the main thing is that if you want to buy a wifi adapter at a low price and you don’t use it that much then you can go for it but if you are searching wifi adapter for the best speed and best coverage then don’t buy this.

7. Mercusys MU6H AC650

This adapter in the list is one of the best adapters also I can say the best among these adapters in this list. Now the thing is that it comes with the branding of Mercusys which is unknown in the Indian market. It is a Chinese brand. So, it is up to you whether you want to buy Chinese products or not. Now the main point is why I added this adapter to this list. The main reason is that it has many best features.

The design of this wifi adapter is also good. Yes, I can say that the size is a little bit big but it is worth it because it comes with an external antenna and it supports 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz both at the same time. The one thing which is not good about this product is that it is a product of Chinese brand and there is no service center for this brand in India. Now You can check out some of the best points of this adapter below which I mentioned.

  • One of the best things in this adapter which makes this different from others in this list is it has 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz which support 200Mbps and 433Mbps respectively.
  • It has a big external antenna that comes with 5dBi which helps to connect any network with better stability and good connection.
  • Here is one bad thing about this adapter it only supports windows os it neither supports Linux nor Mac Os. It can only work in windows.

Buying Guide

There are many things you have to check before buying a new wifi adapter I mentioned some of the points which you can consider while buying the wifi adapter according to your use. Mainly the features will depend on your use because you can’t get everything in one product with less amount. So, you have to check which feature you want most and which feature you can compromise.

The features which you have to check before buying any wifi adapter are:

  • Speed
  • Size
  • Antenna coverage
  • Which Wireless Technology Used

So above these are the 4 best feature you have definitely checked before buying a new wifi adapter also there are many more features that you have to check but these four are the best ones that are must-have in any wifi adapter.

Speed: Now here the speed is one of the most important things in any wifi adapter and yes it is useful for almost all the users out there. So speed is the first thing you have to check before buying any wifi adapter. In the list above I mentioned speeds also os all the wifi adapters. Now Here Speed means not only internet speed but also the processing speed also the transmitting speed of the data. Now generally budget wifi adapter supports at least 150 Mbps and the transmission is at least 2.4Ghz but if you higher in amount then you get more speed like 300MBps 600Mbps and more also transmission speed 5Ghz and more. it basically depends on the money. But generally, it comes with 150 to 300 Mbps and 2.4 to 5 GHz Speed.

Size: Second thing is size now the size is not that much important but yes in some scenario size of the wifi adapter also matters that’s why I am explaining this point in detail. you have to check for size also because some times a small wifi adapter is better than big sized wifi adapter. the tiny size is the best I can say so always find small size.

Antenna Coverage: It is the important thing if you have a big house or office in which you are going to use that wifi adapter basically if the area if big where you are going to use the wifi adapter then you must have to focus this point. Because different wifi adapter comes with different coverage of the antenna. So always check the antenna if the wifi adapter comes with an external antenna then go for it. Wifi adapter wifi external antenna has more coverage than the adapter without an antenna. So I can say that in most of the cases choose the wifi adapter which comes with an external antenna and also check for the dBi of the antenna the more dBi you get the better coverage you have.

Wireless Technology Used: Technology used in the WiFi adapter is also the features we have to check before buying it because speed and connection compatibility with other WiFi devices also depend on the technology used in those devices. now the technologies which are mainly used in almost all the devices are IEEE 802.11 which has many different versions like 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n which runs on 2.4Ghz processors. There are many more technologies are available in the market the mainly these 3-4 are used by many of the brands that why if are you buy a new wifi adapter you have a check that at least these feature must be in there.
