  • Summary: Total piece of crap. Mechanical design is frail at best. Unpack-aged mine and it immediately broke when I unfolded the USB connector. I was able to connect it to my laptop using a USB3 port, only realized 177 Mbs speed at 10 foot distance to a Buffalo 802.11AC wireless router (WZR-1750DHPD).

Buffalo AirStation AC866 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter WI-U2-866

Douglas B., Newegg
23 September 2014
  • Summary: Did not see the speeds promised in a good environment (less then 10 feet of separation between the host computer and the wireless router.
  • Pros: Did not realize any of the speeds advertised. Using a Buffalo WZR-1750DHPD Router with this client adapter mounted in a USB 3 port of a new laptop. Highest transfer speed indicated was 170 Mbs.
  • Cons: Adapter has a fold out design, broke immediately when removed from packaging. I broke on first attempt to unfold it. The design is frail and I cannot believe any mechanical engineer would sign off on it to last any amount of time.

  • Pros: Great Speed Easy Set Up Good Performance
  • Cons: Lack of Documentation

  • Summary: if noticed that vertically all generic 11AC USB addon's to date state up to 800+ speeds without making it clear that Only 11AC adaptors with a USB3 interface can actually reach these speeds. I'd like to see dabs provide a clear and bold this product is using a USB2.
