      I'm going to assume you're genuinely interested in knowing the answer. It's pretty good actually. I was quite surprised.

    Looks like the delivery is 30 + days, even including the express option 😅

      Cainiao have been really good lately. Usually 3-4 weeks so that's better than the 30-50 business day estimate.

        CNY is going to extend this.

    I had issues with getting this dongle to work on my computer - ended up being due to my USB ports all being 3.0 and this dongle only working with 2.0.

    So if you have only 3.0 ports, this won't work for you.

      Worked fine for me in a 3.0 port

        Mine has the wifi card defective (connection drops constantly) so I thought it would be a cheap way to fix it. I read Chromebooks receive only some wifi dongles, I'm just curious to know if this is one of those

          For the price I would just give it a go.

    Can you manually set (change) the MAC address of this?

    •  

      You can change any adapter’s MAC address on Windows.

      • -3 votes

        Hm… Can Windows 10 do what Win 7 couldn't? I had Windows 7 installed on this laptop. Then I discovered my local supermarket had fast wifi (when I'm the only one using it LOL). But then they blocked my MAC address. So I researched how to change the MAC address of the laptop's wifi card but found it's one of the few cards you cannot manually change. Since then I've installed Windows 10.

        • +2 votes

          And this is why we cant have nice things. They likely blocked you because you were overusing their wifi.

            @xoom: LOL. What nonsense. For a start it would obviously be unlimited NBN and they pay that amount regardless. Second I was the only person in the place apart from a cleaner. Third I didn't realise it was blistering fast and burning through data until it had downloaded a few GB in seconds, because during the day it's slower than dialup and often times out with a 'cannot connect' message.

              @Faulty P xel:

              For a start it would obviously be unlimited NBN

              And you know this how? For those playing at home. Not all NBN services are unlimited.

              Even if a business had unlimited download NBN I would still block those abusing it.

          You can change any adapter’s MAC address on any Windows or Linux installations.

          Some manufacturers allow to change more easily (e.g. with supplied software or through driver settings), while others need third party software.

          Fact is, there are no adapters that won’t allow MAC address changes on Linux and Windows.

          You can also change it on rooted Android phones too, but there is no way on iPhones and iPads.

          No idea about Macs.

      •  

        what is the benefit of changing the MAC address??

        • +6 votes

          So faulty p xel can leech off free wifi.

        •  

          when staying at some hotels they will charge your for wifi on each device you use, if you only need 1 device at a time you can change the MAC addresses to match and only pay once. I don't know if this is still a thing but it was a long time ago.

        •  

          Network admins (or software) can ban the wireless MAC address of your device. So if you can change it, you're seen as a new device/user.

          I'd seen someone using a laptop in the food area of the local supermarket several days in a row. So I tried to connect my phone and it worked. But their wifi during the day was useless. You clicked on something and it just cycled away, never loading, until it finally displays a 'cannot connect' error. A few weeks later I was in the middle of changing ISPs with no internet connection. So I went to the supermarket thinking it probably wouldn't work. But I was there when everything except ColesAldiWorths was closing. So I sat down, connected my laptop, and because no-one was there it was blistering fast and it had downloaded several GB in seconds before I even realised what was happening. (I had a bittorrent client installed that automatically loads upon computer startup.)

          Then the connection suddenly stopped working… So I tried the phone, it still worked, so I just shrugged and hotspotted the laptop to the phone wirelessly. Half an hour later the cleaner said it was time to close that section. Next day I returned but the phone MAC address was now blocked too. Only then did it dawn on me it could be deliberate/automatic. So I went to the library instead but they only had a few hundred MB then you had to get another code at the desk.

          After that day I didn't need it anymore anyway, but several months later I needed to go online while at the supermarket but found my phone was still blocked LOL. It wasn't my damn fault their wifi is unusable one minute, and downloads several GB in seconds the next. And there were no 'fair use' warning anywhere. So I researched if you could change MAC addresses. Apparently you can with most devices. e.g. With my phone it had to be rooted first so I just didn't bother. But the laptop has a wireless card and I spent hours researching why I couldn't change it, then found it's one of the few that can't be changed by the user.

        Get around library/airport/supermarket data limitations or bans.

    I don’t know much about these. Is 150mbps fast enough? I’ll be playing some basic RTS games online with other noobs.

    Edit: Nevermind. I just read that the bandwidth speed is not as important as the ping rate.

    Aliexpress can be super slow like a month or two for delivery, but some of things on there are worth the wait, especially if you don't need it urgently.

      I've found most things on AE are also on ebay for the same or nearly the same price. Even the description photos are the same. There's a lot of thieves on AE. I've only come close to losing one AE refund, but I still lost money due to the varying exchange rate… So now I check if the same thing is on ebay first because sellers are less likely to be thieves, and full refunds are faster and easier.

          Don't understand why you need to be with any of those banks to get a Credit Card with no fee on foreign transactions. I've the 28 Degrees over 10 years and never have pay any fees when travel overseas or online purchases. Setup direct credit card payment from my saving account and never have to remember to pay your CC. Not sure what your worrying about "manage".

        •  

          Then close one you already have that does have fees, and sign up for the one I mentioned below instead. ;-)

      Yeah get a Macquarie Bank Debit Mastercard account. Signup online was the fastest and easiest I've ever done. Zero fees too.
