Summary: Never gets more than 1 bar. It works only if it is sitting right next to the router. Otherwise, it takes forever to load a page. WiFi for other devices work beautifully at the same location where this does not work. So the problem is not in the router. The contact of the adapter feels loose.
Reliably getting 82 Mbps Up/Down. (Contract is for only 75/75). Fantastic Product.

Summary: I have Verizon FIOS broadband, 75 Mbps Up/Down, and this Linksys AE2500 N600 Dual Band USB adapter nailed it, right off the bat. I need the 5 GHz band to get that speed, and this one delivers it in spades.
Summary: Relieved to see other people posting about how this thing constantly loses connection to the Internet. It drives me insane, it worked good for the first month or two but now I constantly am unplugging it and plugging it back in to get my connection back. It's very aggravating.
Summary: Good signal strength but slow speeds, moved desktop around the residence to attempt to gain speed but a no go. Revised router settings but again no increase in speed. Purchased another wifi adapter/different manufacturer and speeds increased 3x.
Summary: Unlike previous reviewer, these adapters work great on my Lenovo Thinkpad T60 laptop with Windows 10. Had both an AE2500 and AE3000 in a drawer for a couple years along with old Lenovo Thinkpad T60. Upgraded the T60 to Windows 10 to experiment before loading on my newer main Lenovo Thinkpad laptops.
