Summary: Had trouble getting to work on three out of four computers. Kept getting a error code 1327 during software installation. After I got it installed it slowed down the computer even that the speed was showing 433 mbs Uninstaller it used a n300 netgear wyfi and it is working great better than with the n600.
Summary: Using the inSSider app to evaluate the performance of the AC600 with the Netgear Nighthawk router shows that the 802.11/ac connection only has a througput of 54 Mb/sec while the 802.11/n connection has a throughput of 216 Mb/sec. The connection strength in both cases is 2 to 3 times the Dell wireless connection, but if the throughput is slower, why have 802.11/n? Very disappointed.
Excerpt: I don't even know if this works . I went into the store because no internet connections were found. The tech tried to run a test, but couldn't get the test to work. I asked him about an Ethernet cable and a wifi adapter. He convinced me the adapter was more versatile. I do not have a disc drive on my computer so they needed to configure the adapter over the internet. The adapter would not load.
Summary: Very disappointing for the price. It works quite well but the lack of an antenna definitely limits its performance. There are other USB dongles out there for less than half the price of this one that work much better and can detect more networks. Quite a good dongle but the price is unacceptable.
Summary: installed (beta driver) and connected fine- have to manually reconnect after restarting computer as the connection loses connectivity (win8 shows connection as 'limited). when it is connected it works as advertised.
