Excerpt: After buying two other brands from Newegg I found this on sale at the same price as Newegg at Office Depot, so I bought it. I bought the additional warranty also. The first one lasted about twenty minutes it overheated, so I returned it. The second one has been working fine it was easy to set up and has been stable ever since.

Excerpt: Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter (AE3000) (Personal Computers) i am quite impressed with this device...used it to upgrade my old laptops to N band WireLess...(their built in wireless adapter was G-only)...compared before and after...this N adapter is easily 3x-2x faster, then the origanal built in G WireLess...this device will easily reach full potential bandwidth of my ComCast cable...range and sensitivity are excellent..
Excerpt: The installation was very simple and fast. Everything worked the first time. One minor problem, when the computor is left on,falls asleep, the connection is lost and I have to "repair the connection".
Excerpt: The AE3000 has good range and throughput and is very easy to set up. However, it has one irritating flaw. To manage wireless connections in Windows 7 it uses that OS's native configuration utility. That utility, at least with the AE3000, does not allow the user to choose which channel to connect to if multiple channels are used with the same SSID.
