5 out of 5 eggsImpressed, Good for gaming

This review is from: Linksys WUSB6300 Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n USB 3.0 Up to 867 or 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: My niece had all sorts of issues gaming from her desktop computer. Can't run a hardwire and forced to use wireless. Although her existing card has a good signal the lag was awful. I purchases this higher end card in hopes to address the issues. Same Spec 802.11N and out performs the old card. This card resolved all the issues she was having.

You get what you pay for on this card. Were quite pleased with the performance, Thanks Linksys!

Also the setup was quite easy. As a computer tech I can identify something a end user can handle, and what they cannot. This is a really good straight forward interface to install it even for the less technical people. Good job.

Cons: None, solid product!

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

This review is from: Linksys WUSB6300 Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n USB 3.0 Up to 867 or 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: None.
Chat support attempt I waited 90 minutes while listening to music music. Finally gave up.
However, the pre-installed Intel (R) Wireless-N 7260 that came with the laptop works great. All be it, it does not take advantage of the AC router speed.

Cons: Constant dropped connections
Does not go above 300Mbs
My System:
Lenovo:Y510P
Ram: 16mb
Video: 2x gt755m 2gb in SLI (4gb total)
Windows 8.1
Network: Linksys EA6700 Smart AC1750 Dual Band N450 + AC1300 Wireless Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
Network.

On my desk top I run for a wireless: ASUS PCE-AC68 PCI Express Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter. This card works flawlessly, though it is on a Windows 7 64bit system

Other Thoughts: Sometimes reps read these and respond personally with some type of contact info. I am hoping so. I would like to try and get this to work.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Eric,

Thank you for reaching out to us. The WUSB6300 doesn’t have an available driver yet for Windows 8.1 which might be the reason why the connection constantly dropped. Feel free to email us at LinksysCares@linksys.com should you require our assistance anytime.

Thanks,
Linksys Support

3 out of 5 eggsSerious Problems

This review is from: Linksys WUSB6300 Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n USB 3.0 Up to 867 or 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: Decent ac support if they'll add full USB 3.0 support in an updated driver/firmware.

Cons: I wrote the previous review of this product with the same title as this one. I updated my router to an ac model and most of the issues went away. The following are true with the USB 3.0 issue being the most serious.

- Doesn't connect or advertise as a USB 3.0 device when connected to a confirmed USB 3.0 port. Verified with USBVIEW utility.
- Doesn't include a cabled USB cradle like the AE3000.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: Linksys WUSB6300 Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n USB 3.0 Up to 867 or 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: 1. Worked right out of the box and into my USB ports. No needed installation software.

2. Connection is stable and has served me beautifully for online gaming with no unreasonable lag spikes.

3. It didn't catch fire, and I like that in a product.

I don't know who all these people are having problems with their "router trains" but they could simply have a defective adapter, or they are using it inappropriately. It's too technologically simple a device to have many problems with it. If it isn't working and delivering what its specs say it delivers, exchange it for another because there is nothing inherently wrong with its design or performance.

Cons: It isn't free?

This review is from: Linksys WUSB6300 Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n USB 3.0 Up to 867 or 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Pros: No Pros, haven't yet checked out connecting to an AC capable router.

Cons: Connected to DLink DIR-835 which has no problems using a Linksys AE3000. I encountered the following problems with the WUSB6300.

- Drops or slows connection to < 1Mbps frequently.
- Doesn't connect or advertise as a USB 3.0 device when connected to a confirmed USB 3.0 port. Verified with USBVIEW utility.
- Doesn't include a cabled USB cradle like the AE3000.

Other Thoughts: Using latest available drivers dated Aug 2013.

Manufacturer Response:
