Nice little adapter at a nice price!

I bought this to add to my laptop as it had a painfully slow internet access, I mean down in the 10Mbs speed. Now at first with the AE6000 it would only connect on the single 2.4Ghz. I visited the Linksys website and found that I had to download and manually install a different driver. After this was completed I was seeing 230Mbs up from the standard wireless N of 72Mbs. All in all, Ive had the AE6000 for a few weeks, is hasnt dropped connection or slowed. Very happy. The only reason I dropped it to 4 stars was due to the set up telling me it had the most up to date driver but in reality I needed another driver.

Slow speeds

Terrible consistency. Connectivity constantly going to 0. Average speed was halved.

died on me

I bought this little guy about a week and a half ago and it started working fine, download speeds were very painfully slow it would take me well over an hour to download something that was only a few GB. today I turned on my PC to do some work and it wouldn't connect my computer wouldn't even recognize it. I thought at first it was my USB port but when I plugged my iPad and phone in they both came up. This little guy died on me, save your money folks just not worth the trouble

I bought this little thing for one reason it was less expensive then any of the others at best buy, two days later and it is complete garbage. You can't download anything without it completely dropping out. learn from my mistake and save your money. defiantly not worth it

Works great for me

Don't know the issues others are having. Have this set up on an htpc for high definition video streaming and it works flawlessly from day 1. Great Adapter easy to install and is so small you don't notice it.

WORST WIRELESS ADAPTER IVE EVER USED. Super slow, my computer is all of a sudden having "malicious" problems. DONT get this, your better off going back to AOL. Very, very unhappy with this product.

Good Adapter

I bought one for my PC which got the 2.4 G pre-installed in it and was very slow in speed. I simply plugged this in and was ready to go in less than 1 minute. Now I get fantastic speed on 5 G band. Bought on Boxing day 25 Dec 2014 online at sale price and worth.

This wireless mini USB adapter corrupts downloads and when viewing websites does not display all images or corrupts them making the bottom half look like static from an old TV. I would give this a 0 star if I could and no drivers did not fix the problem as Cisco drivers are outdated!
