Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful AdvancementI received this unit and tried it out on a laptop that I use for most of my work. The units capability was amazing compared to the laptops on board built in wireless system. It worked so much better that I am using it instead. The only issue is it does take a usb port, which I really don't need. I have 6 ports on my laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ProductThe Linksys WUSB6100M Max-Stream AC600 Wi-Fi Micro USB Adapter rates 5 stars because it is dependable, easy to setup and has an excellent range. Compared to the wifi adapter built in to my laptop, this USB adapter almost doubles the range distance. It only took me a couple minutes to setup. Does require you to set it as the default wifi adapter. Again a simple process of right-clicking on the adapter and setting it as default. Every thing worked better than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect addition for my old laptopI started using the WUSB6100M Max-Stream about a month ago and it has been a perfect upgrade for my old lap top. I have used on my home network (AC network) and I have used it in many different hotel across the US with out any problems or issues. It was very easy to setup it basicly did everything for me. I plug it in and it has found the network every time and connected. That's what I wanted it to do and it did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good in Mixed Mode GREAT in 5GI have owned this adapter for about 3 weeks. It loaded drivers directly from Windows update in Windows 7 Pro. I have done some comparisons with my older N300 adapter. My Old N300 would do 15-35 Mb/s all over the place. In Comparison The Linksys AC600 averaged 52Mb/s in N mode, and 250 Mb/s in 5 GHZ mode!!!!! It was much more consistent, with less spiking and variation. In both examples, my desktop PC was the only wireless client. I am very impressed with the throughput and consistency of this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised.Installed about two weeks ago and has doubled my in-house Wi-Fi speed. We have one laptop in the back of our house and the built-in Wi-Fi was getting 8-12 Mbps, now getting 18-23 Mbps with the 6100 unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. Easy to install and useI received this usb wi-fi adapter last week. Following instructions, I inserted the driver CD and installed the driver. Then simply inserted the usb adaapter. It was recognized immediately. After selecting the network I was looking to connect, I was online. Performance was quite good and response immediate. I tried it with both a Netgear and Linksys router. No problems with either. It worked and stayed connected on both. Connected in both 5GHZ and 2.4GHZ with no problems. Performance was better in the 5GHZ spectrum. Only problem was with Windows 10 power saving. When the PC went into power save mode the adapter would not come back after the PC came out of power save mode. I unplugged the adapter and plugged it back in and then it works. I later went into the windows settings for the adapter and unchecked the box to allow windows to power down the device in power save mode. This fixed the problem. Other than that, I can recommend this as a simple cost effective upgrade for any device needing the additional throughput and perfromance 802.11 AC provides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of power in a very small package.When I opened the box holding the new Linksys WUSB6100M Max-Stream AC600 Wi-Fi Micro USB Adapter I couldn't believe the size of it. At just over an inch long, it packs the ability to speed up the wireless network in my house. I followed the suggestions on the Linksys website and plugged it into a USB port on my laptop. It connected immediately to my network. It was effortless. There were immediate results in increased connection speeds, full strength signals throughout my house and no dropped or weakened network connections. I'm talking 2 tablets, smartphone, and desktop throughout the house. The WUSB6100M AC600 did all of that by just plugging it into the USB port on my laptop. This Micro USB adapter is REALLY worth buying. I recommend it to anyone with a home network based on my experiences with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Signal - Fast SpeedsI purchased this unit to pair with the EA7500 MU MI-MO router. They are a great pair. Speeds are faster then I was getting with my e3000 and ea1000 (which died, and replaced with a WUSB6300). It's pretty good aside from the drivers sometimes having to be reloaded with a reboot. Could be my machine. Didn't experience it withe other USB adapters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great with New MIMO Router- not AC1200This is the latest and greatest, yet it is only spec'd to AC600 instead of the fastest AC1200.Comparing the 2 adapters, I found the AC1200 to be a little faster- even though not MIMO. Would like to see a AC1200 MIMO adapter.

All I had to do was connect to my AC wireless network. The adapter is very solid and connections did not drop after heavy use. This is a great adapter that creates a solid connection and never fails. I highly recommended the AC600 Micro Adapter,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on my laptop.My laptop internal wifi card died. I plugged it in and had to install the Linksys drivers. Works like a charm. Only downside is when my laptop "sleeps" I have to unplug it and put it back in. Called support and found that this was a glitch with Windows 10. Hopefully they will solve it. No big deal to unplug and replug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute junk. Constantly drops connection.This thing will get like 140 mbps one minute than .5 the next. After exhaustive trouble shooting and perusing their support forums not only am i not the only person with this issue but they dont' seem interested at all in fixing it. Go look for yourself, multiple threads and nobody gets the issue resolved. The only reason i never returned it was because it sat in the box for a year before i had to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OS upgrade neededI waited quite a while for this adapter to be available for purchase, but when I finally ordered and received it, I discovered that it will not work with the Windows XP OS on my wife's computer. I guess it's time to upgrade -- either to Windows 7 or a new computer. And so I shall wait some more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like getting a new computerJust plug it in and the Windows 10 software recognizes the usb adapter and connects to the network you tell it to. Make sure you make it your default wireless connection and it will go to it every time you start up your computer. I use Comcast Blast and am able with this Adapter to take advantage of the speed my Linksys Router 3200 can put out and it completely changed my older laptop wireless speed. It's amazing what this adapter can do for speeding up your laptop, instead of having to go out and purchase the latest and greatest laptop computer you need this inexpensive Adapter to make your network run at the faster speeds that are out there now. Thank Linksys for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not up to Linksys standardKnowing the quality and reputation of Linksys, I was excited to try the Wi-Fi adapter. I recently relocated my desktop to a room without an Ethernet port. Setup was super easy as would be expected, Performance was average. I only gave it three stars, that was being generous, anytime after a power down event, I had to unplug the adapter and plug it back in. I don't believe it is a computer issue as other adapters work fine.I wanted to try it on wife's laptop, since she has built in N adapter. I could not get it to work on her laptop. Both computers running Windows 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ProductAt first glance this is a product that could easily be dismissed as unnecessary but the gains that I've received from the improved performance I believe would be well worth the cost. I reside in a rural area and receive my ISP via a wireless router with a medium signal strength. This USB Adaptor has greatly improved the quality and DL speeds from my router and signal extender to my AIO PC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speeds are FantasticsI bought 5 of these to replace the all the cat 5/6 cables lying around in the game room. I was using a Tp Link power-line adapter to carry the load down to the basement and was only seeing around 60-80 mbps when 3 machine were actively gaming. With 3 of these Linksys 6100M's in place and they all are simultaneously hitting speeds of 250mbps up and 150mbps down. Great investment and more importantly no wires or hub lying around. We need to wear seat belts when surfing and gaming since we are moving soooooooo fast!

The adapter size is small; less than half of the one I used previously. It is plugged into a USB 3 port.
