  • Great solution for low powered internal wireless adapters.
    Reviewed by Karl Roga - December 15, 2016

    Purchased recently on sale at Best Buy to enable my 2 year old Acer laptop with Intel I3 processor to receive high speed internet. Setup was easy even though my laptop does not have a cd drive to run setup disc. I simply plugged into USB drive and downloaded latest driver from windows 10 and completed setup. Only drawback is that the USB adapter is a bit large so caution must be taken not to damage it when moving the laptop around. Performance was amazing with my new gigabit internet service as I was able to achieve 400 mbps + vs 40mbps downloads with my original internal card. Great upgrade solution for a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Using on an older laptop. Still using Win 7. I added more memory, SSD and now upgraded Wi-Fi. This laptop is good for a few more years now. I was able to move around house without losing my signal. Stayed at 4-5 bars, 5 is max. I streamed movies from Netflix and Amazon with no problems. I even took my laptop across the street to my neighbors house and it's about 120 yards away. Inside his house I still picked up my Wi-Fi. Now I live in a ruhl area, and my router is hi up on a desk by a window, but I still got 1-2 bars. I have seen a lot of bad reviews on Amazon, but I did not have any problems at all. Setup up was easy and fast. The only complaint I have, is sticking out from laptop. I wish it had a right angle on it, to point up.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I installed this on a 7 year old Sony Vaio win 7 OS. It installed flawlessly with good operation in less than five minutes including the check for updates during install. I am connected to a Linksys AC1200 Max Range Extender and achieving 780 Mbps on the average. I'm sure I could tweak the range ext settings to have more, but why change what is working well. This would also be good for a Desktop for an upgrade to a wireless connection. It connects well on boot up. I have not had any drop outs as of yet.

  • a dud.. very disappointed

    I bought this purchase on 01/02/2017 and it just stopped working yesterday(02/24/2017) .. it did not even lasted a year..what a waste of $60.00.. I gave 2 star because the speed was awesome and installation was so easy on my windows 10... It only lasted 52 days.. I been using Linksys product for 20+ years..I believe it was under the name of Cisco back then.. I bought this Linksys wifi adapter because I have Linkysys WRT1900AC router and it worked great together but unfortunately, it died on me after 52 days..I cannot even return this anymore.. I am going to contact Linksys and see if they can replace under one year manufacture warranty..But I doubt it... I been putting lots of interest in Linksys/Cisco for many many years but now i have to move on to Netgear or Asus, which I do not want to do but no choice.. Thank you Linksys for everything before and I am not thanking you for this defective wusb6300 adapter.. what a waste of $60.00 .. thnx a lot..

  • In the fast lane now!
    Reviewed by wnstn3 - May 28, 2016

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was thinking of upgrading the wireless adapter on my laptop to take full advantage of my upgraded internet service. The standard one in the laptop worked fine, but after installing the Linksys adapter I am getting download speeds in the upper 80mbps now vs the mid 20's I was getting before. What a difference! My only concern is the adapter is on the larger side and sticks out quite a bit from the laptop so it's something I'll have to pay attention to when handling it. Aside from that, the speed difference far outweighs the size concern. Please note, I received this product free from Linksys in exchange for my honest review of the product.
