Have Netgear R6300 router. 6 computers on home network. Decided to try an 802.11ac adapter. Decided safest path was to get Netgear to go with Netgear. Before I installed the 6200 adapter, I tested old type N150 adapter: 1GB file transferred in 2.5 min. Ran test three times, got same result +/- 3 seconds. Installed 6200, connected to 5GHz output of router. Ran test with 1GB file: 70 seconds =/-3. After all the complaining in the reviews I've seen, I was very pleased with the results.
Adapter crashed in middle of one test. Would not reconnect. I had to unplug and reinsert it to get it back up and running. If this persists, I will have to rma it. Yuck!
Several reviewers have pointed out that this adapter will never approach 900 Mbps throughput because it is a USB2 device. I hereby join the chorus: it is patently dishonest for Netgear to trumpet the "900" without clearly indicating that this refers only to the adapter's receiver/transmitter speed. There are numerous other ways to position the "900" as an advantage without misleading the customer. For my N150 adapter, the bottleneck was the r/t speed. For the A6200 the bottleneck moves to the USB2. That really is progress.
