Summary: This worked well enough for a long time, but it heats up when there's a problem with the network. It eventually got used enough that the coating on the outside got melted and started coming off. Perhaps the new version fixed that; I got the older one.
Summary: except 5ghz was the only strong connection. It says 300 speed on 2.4 but it never reached it. It feels shaky and not solid and the cap slides out which I hated it. the cap sits on the top but tends to slid off randomly or barbely held.
Summary: I wouldnt be buying this again..never buying a Linksys/Cisco product again actually. Much prefer Belkin.
Pros: Most of the time this thing runs REALLY fast. USB, can keep it out of the way of all my other junk!
Cons: Overheats very fast. Have to take the adapter itself off the USB port in order for it to cool down. Huge Fire Risk in my opinion. Not sure whether mine is just defective or not though. Seems to run very slow sometimes (3Mbps).
Summary: I purchased this adapter a few years back for my laptop, and it has done the job. For the price, it's a fair deal and good if you're not too internet intensive. Wireless signal constantly is at two bars, that was true even fresh out of the box and in the same room as the router.
Summary: I was worried about purchasing the WUSB600N Wireless Adaptor because of the other reviews I read here. I found them to be basically correct. This was a mixed bag for me. First the included cable adaptor didn't work at all.
Pros: Like that it comes with a USB extension base to allow flexible placement. The 802.11n speeds are faster than the 100mbps wired Ethernet these devices replaced.
Cons: We standardized on this when our small office moved to a new facility that wasn't wired for Ethernet. One machine running XP-64 is out of luck because 64-bit drivers are available only for Vista and Win7. On two machines, the signal strength bars icon in the system tray flashes between "no signal...
Summary: I've used Linksys gear both at home and with customers for a number of years now, and this phenomenon is something new. I've always relied on them for the kind of gear that I can put in front of a non-technical user with the expectation that they will not have to intervene in even something as...
Pros: Attractive, works pretty well, connects reasonably rapidly.
Cons: Cannot sustain a network connection when inactive for a few hours -- have to remove and re-seat the USB connection each time.
Summary: Also the USB stand for the Adapter would not work. I had to plug it directly into a USB port - though it worked with a USB extension cord that I already had.
Pros: Easy installation. Windows 7 recognized it easily after running installation CD.
Cons: Poor RF gain. Less than half the signal strength of my old Linksys WMP54g that I was going to replace. I am running on an older Linksys WRT54GL wireless router under 802.11g and it may do better with a newer router running under n. But for only an adpater upgrade it was a step down.
