Excerpt: The Linksys AE3000 works great! We are using a computer in a remote part of our building; this adapter allows for swift internet connections and downloads. It is simple to use - takes about 5 minutes to set up.
When I used this AE3000 it installed with the CD very easily and the speed doubled from my old one

Summary: I purchased this to replace an older Linksys USB Adapter that would not provide the speeds needed and when I upgraded to windows 8 and 8.1, the adapter did not work well at all. When I used this AE3000 it installed with the CD very easily and the speed doubled from my old one. The AE3000 box says it is a D900 which confused me at first, but it is the same item.
Excerpt: Lightening tickled the computer and after> no ethercard worked after / NO CONNECTION ! ! ! Went to Staples and picked up Linksys AE3000 Dual Band N900 USB Adapter by Linksys. Haven't missed the internet since. If your Ethernet Card goes, try it. I have found Linksys a true solution to all my internet connection problems.
Excerpt: Great performance at a great price. I especially like the external cradle which removes the adapter from the immediate space around the other system units thus providing clearer communication with the household router. The adapter was put on my wife's PC to replace an older adapter and she saw a major improvement in speed.
Summary: Works great in my apartment in the next room. No issues whatsoever and I have had it for about 2 weeks. My internet is actually faster than my macbook pro's wireless. I have CenturyLink and use an airport extreme for my router. It was very easy to set it up. Just put in the install cd, plug in the adapter, and then you are all set.
