1 out of 5 eggsconstant disconnects

Pros: When it works, it works great. But it will drop connection and force you to re-install every hour or every day or every week... Anytime in that range, really, which means if you do competitive gaming - you will lose because of it.

I waited for software upgrade but it never came; now going to buy something different.

Cons: Disconnects constantly within 1hr-1week

4 out of 5 eggsA6200 needs a reset

Pros: Very fast speed when used with fast router.
quick to connect

Cons: The A6200 needs to be reset after the computer has been asleep of in another off or nearly off state.
Netgear should have added a USB reset in the USB driver for the A6200.

Other Thoughts: The A6200 needs a reset. I have discovered that the A6200 works perfectly when connected to a certain USB on my motherboard, but it does not work after computer has slept when connected to some of the other USBs on the MB. If your A6200 has a problem just try a different USB plug or different USB settings for sleep.

4 out of 5 eggsKnow how to use.

Pros: Must know how to position it facing router direction.
once you have it positioned works great.
looks good
cool netgear connection settings

Cons: MUST use the sideways feature of this product to acheive constant good connectivity, constant disconnection if in verticle position.

Other Thoughts: i have experianced many disconnects and lossage of signal, but if you utilize the extension usb cord and the sideways adapter setting it works amazing! i sat down and ran my own test. and streamed constant different youtube videos in the background (1080P) while constantly looking at the connection bars. before they would never get more than 3 bars, but after 2 hours of loading at least 7 1080p videos it never dropped below THE TOP TWO BARS i was hitting the refresh connection setting in the menu and never lost connection. great adapter. very tempurmental though. (my wireless router is about 28 yards to my general position and up one level, always have had connection problems until now)

1 out of 5 eggsYeah, same problems you see below - just confirming...

Pros: When it works, it works fine. For me, that is about two or three days...

Cons: With Windows 8.1, it will intermittently disconnect. If you disconnect/reconnect, it will sometimes come back to life and let you connect to a network. If that doesn't work, it requires a reboot. I cannot uninstall the drivers using their Uninstaller package - it just locks my computer up tight. I used standalone drivers for the install. I've tried "reinstalling" and choosing the repair "uninstall/reinstall" option and it locks up as well. Sigh...

1 out of 5 eggsFast but unreliable

Pros: It will smoothly stream HD video and allow gaming with great speed...when it works.

Cons: It will randomly decide not to work and force you to go through the re-install process. This happens mostly when the computer goes to sleep: When you wake it up, network connections are lost and the network navigator will not even open up...forcing you to re-install. I averaged re-installing the software/drivers for this thing about 3-4 times a week. Finally last night it refused to detect any networks and locked up and the status light on it just blinks and blinks; it no longer sees any networks. No amount of software manipulation would bring it back. JUNK.

Upgrading to newer drivers from Netgear did nothing to improve reliability or stability.

I am done with Netgear equipment.

Other Thoughts: I bought this from a local big box retailer, not from Newegg, but I've decided to share my experience lest someone else go through the grief this thing visited upon me.

NOT RECOMMENDED

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: blinding AC and N speeds. shocking,,,,fast,, there is HOPE!!!
and on AC, wow. (802ac) not alternating current. LOL..

Cons: buy dies, every 1 hour , goes dead, in device manager.
only in windows 8.1, never windows 7 (4 win 8 systems here)
tried on USB2 and 3 ports.
fails direct connected. no cable too..
will some tims do a netflix movie for 2hrs.

but fails skype in 1hr or less like clock work.
ran all drivers for from v. dot 20 to 35. 35 is current beta.
the 35 beats them all, the older ones die, at system idle.pathetic that.

Other Thoughts: systems are all M5a99x evo based, all with tons of mem. 12gb in one.
and ssd , and all had clean loads of 8.1
and 8.1 killed (no driver ever) for DWA140 dongle. so we bought this.
hoping that it would have a longer life that w7 dongles dont have.
many USB/WIFI are WIN8 , DOA.
so AC is the way to go but is bleeding edge.
why didn't netgear get certified at MS with windows 8 ALFA, ? what joke.
a day late and a dollar short.

sad to see.

i only need it , in one room that a CAT 6 cable can never go. ever.
I did find a RAlink RT3072 base dongle today, and its OK.
cheers !

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid like the plague

Pros: When it works, it's absolutely great. Crazy fast speeds and stellar range.

Cons: The only problem is it drops connectivity every 5 to 30 minutes. I've changed routers, changed computers, changed OS, and it's definitely the USB device. To reset it, I just unplug it and plug it back in, but this becomes annoying very fast. From the looks of other reviews, this hardware is bunk. Do not buy.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy if you have windows 8

Pros: None, stay away

Cons: Can't stay connect to the internet for more then a minute or so on my windows 8 PC. Also lose a lot of speed from my router to this adapter on my windows 7 PC. Range is also quite poor

Other Thoughts: I get 40mps at home. With this installed on my windows 7 device my PC pulled around 7mps as the only device connected which was pretty poor but at least it stayed connected to the internet. After plugging the adapter into my windows 8 device and installing the latest driver, 1.0.0.26 I think, I couldn't get the adapter to stay connect to the internet for more then a second. Range is bad as well. 20 feet away and 1 wall between the router and I and I had a 2 bar connection. My girlfriends 5 yr old laptop has 4 bars for the same distance. Avoid this adapter.

4 out of 5 eggsintermediate disconect

Pros: simple interface.

Cons: Random disconnects caused by low power usage. You got it right. Because power usage drops below a certain level computer will have disconnect issues. follow this simple guide to fix the issue for most people. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/23352/~/a6200-or-wnda3100v2-wireless-adapter-intermittently-disconnects
