1 out of 5 eggsNot for Dual Boot

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC600UB - Dual Band Wireless AC600 Adapter - IEEE 802.11AC a / b / g / n, Up to 433 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 150 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, WPS for Easy Connect

Pros: None

Cons: Does not work with a Dual Boot system ie Windows and Ubuntu, etc. Called Rosewill Tech Support and this is what I was told.

Ubuntu won't recognize the device and it crased Windows as soon as I plugged it in.

Other Thoughts: Paid $21 for shipping but am only getting $15 on the return.

4 out of 5 eggsRosewill RNX-AC600B

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC600UB - Dual Band Wireless AC600 Adapter - IEEE 802.11AC a / b / g / n, Up to 433 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 150 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, WPS for Easy Connect

Pros: The driver from web page is working OK on Windows 8.1 64 bit.
It was small and inexpensive. 5GHz faster than the stock 802.11N on my HP Envy 17 laptop. It hasn't stopped working while using the computer or after waking the computer.

Cons: 2.4 GHz not faster 14 feet away from the Apple Airport Extreme base station than the built in N adaptor in the HP Envy 17 laptop from 2010. If it could do 300 to 450 MBps at 2.4 GHz without costing more or being unreliable, I would give 5 stars. (They didn't claim it would.)

Other Thoughts: I bought this to upgrade my laptop from 802.11N. It connects at a higher speed than the built in wireless at 5 GHz and it isn't too wide to use the USB port next to it. It doesn't stick out very far.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well - Update

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC600UB - Dual Band Wireless AC600 Adapter - IEEE 802.11AC a / b / g / n, Up to 433 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 150 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, WPS for Easy Connect

Pros: See previous review

Cons: See Previous Review

Other Thoughts: In my case the problem with installing this unit comes from a conflict with Zone Alarm Firewall, which will not the drivers install correctly or disables the adapter so that it appears not to work..
My workaround was to uninstall the firewall, install the wireless adapter and then reinstall firewall. Everything works well after that!
I have encountered the same problem with a Belkin WiFi USB adapter recently.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT PURCHASE

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC600UB - Dual Band Wireless AC600 Adapter - IEEE 802.11AC a / b / g / n, Up to 433 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 150 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, WPS for Easy Connect

Pros: NONE

Cons: Doesn't work and killed one of my laptops.

Other Thoughts: I'm an IT Administrator. I purchased this when I was buying another product and saw it for a low price and thought I might find a use for it. When it arrived, I tested it first by inserting it into my new laptop running Windows 8.1. Each time I did this, I'd immediately get a blue screen instantly. If I boot up with the device in, I'd get a blue screen before login.

I then tried to insert this wireless device into one of my old laptops. In this case, a 12 year old sturdy laptop running Windows XP. The result was instant shutdown of the laptop and IT WILL NOT POWER ON ANYMORE.

Needless to say, this was a bad purchase. For your own safety, do not purchase this wireless adapter.

4 out of 5 eggsIt seems to work

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC600UB - Dual Band Wireless AC600 Adapter - IEEE 802.11AC a / b / g / n, Up to 433 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 150 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, WPS for Easy Connect

Pros: Very attractive price. It's small. It works.

Cons: No online support that I can find - had to use the driver from the install CD. Documentation a bit weak. Deducted one egg for that.

Other Thoughts: Following the advice of others on here, I ignored the instructions and installed the drivers first and rebooted before ever inserting the adapter. It installed fine on my system from the start (Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit) with apparently no issues.

For large block transfers I get speeds ranging from 300-400 Mbps when in the same room as my AC router (ASUS RT-AC66R), and about 100-150 Mbps when on the other end of the house. Overall that's better than 5X the real-world performance that I was getting with my previous 801.11 n setup. Can't complain about that.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money/time

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC600UB - Dual Band Wireless AC600 Adapter - IEEE 802.11AC a / b / g / n, Up to 433 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 150 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, WPS for Easy Connect

Pros: It's small, when it works it's relatively fast

Cons: Plugged device in, caused instant BSOD. Installed the drivers first, device worked relatively well for a little while but would constantly drop connection while other wireless clients had no issues. Now recently, device causes BSOD constantly even after multiple re-installs of the drivers/utility. No new drivers in 9+ months, and drivers aren't even under the device description on their website.

Other Thoughts: No updated drivers, the mere presence of it crashes the system. Buyer very much beware.

2 out of 5 eggsRosewill Link

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC600UB - Dual Band Wireless AC600 Adapter - IEEE 802.11AC a / b / g / n, Up to 433 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 150 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, WPS for Easy Connect

Pros: Driver links from Rosewill don't exist

Cons: Seriously, driver links as provided by Rosewill aren't there. Really. Check it if you'd like. The one they give is:

http://www.rosewill.com/products/2702/ProductDetail_Download.htm

Do you see a link for software there? hmmm...

Other Thoughts: If we knew the REAL mfg, we could go there for drivers...

3 out of 5 eggsDecent hardware but lousy documentation

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC600UB - Dual Band Wireless AC600 Adapter - IEEE 802.11AC a / b / g / n, Up to 433 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 150 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, WPS for Easy Connect

Pros: Stable connection and works fine with my Blackhawk router.

Cons: I foolish thought that I should follow the directions in the printed manual which said to insert the adapter first However, it crashed Windows 8.1 repeatedly.
Finally decided to do it the correct way when installing a USB device. - Install the software FIRST.

On the CD, In a font that is 10 pts or less, it gives you this suggestion.

2 out of 5 eggsIts ok

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC600UB - Dual Band Wireless AC600 Adapter - IEEE 802.11AC a / b / g / n, Up to 433 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 150 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, WPS for Easy Connect

Pros: Dualband
AC

works fine

Cons: The main issue i have with this thing, is the software you need to use it, all other purchasers might want to check for this too.

Opening up the task manager after the computer has been on for a couple of hours and seeing an unusual amount of pagefile being used, and a severely increased handle count (>100000). checked the processes and the runSW.exe had a handle count of 80k, and it kept creeping up at about 20-50 per second.

uninstalling the software of course get sit to stop but then the adapter is entirely unusable.

this increase happens even if the adapter is plugged in or not.

obviously a software defect, thinking about just sending it back since i obviously cant leave the computer on with the software installed.

Happens on both of my computers, an acer aspire 7551g with win7 home prem Sp1 64bit and an i3 desktop with win7 pro sp1 64bit.
