This would entirely depend on the strength of your available wifi.

My sky router is located in the garage and my PC is located in bedroom and struggles to operate correctly on wifi. Would you recommend this USB adapter 

Asked by: Eamonn
This would make your PC WiFi compatible, it would not improve the strength of signal. If the distance between the router and your PC is the issue and causing slow connection due to the range, you would need to look at our WiFi Extenders.
