works great and easy to set up, March 29th, 2014
The Linksys AE6000 was easy to setup. And gives faster connection than the other adapter I was using. Which is another brand. It keeps a constant connection to the Internet and doesn't lose it self. It also has a larger WIFI range.

disappointing speeds, March 13th, 2014
I had this adapter replaced under warranty to very slow speeds and poor reception. The replacement is more stable but will not register any speeds above 150; even my old N series adapter register 300. For those of us with newer routers look at another product.

SO FAST! ROCK-SOLID CONNECTION., February 15th, 2014
Excellent product! My Lenovo W520 had slow, erratic WiFi with the built-in 5GHz adapter. I added the Linksys AE6000 / AC583 adapter and now I get consistent 430Mbps when paired with Linksys EA6900. Signal strength is 100% at long distance. Fastest wireless I have ever experienced.

better reception, September 9th, 2013
I recently purchased the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi router AC 1200.My reception appears to be markedly improved, I recommend it to anyone contemplating an upgrade.

Great replacement wireless-AC USB adapter, July 31st, 2013
My older HP dv7 laptop has an Atheros AR9285 adapter which was being used with a Linksys E2500 dual band wireless-N router. The adapter kept dropping the signal which is documented in user forums. The E2500 works great with other computers so I knew that was not the problem. I upgraded to the EA6500 Linksys router paired with the AE6000 wireless-AC USB adapter. My connectivity and speed problems were resolved! Installation and set-up was easy, and one only needs to disable the device driver on the old adapter. I checked other brands before purchase, and this was the only mini USB adapter that uses the wireless-AC technology, so I like the smaller profile.

The AE6000 solved my droping signal problem., April 12th, 2013
I upgraded my operating system to Windows 8. When I did, the receiver I used with Windows XP continually would drop the signal from my Linksys Wireless Router. After talking with a technician at Linksys, they recommended the new AE6000. I have not dropped my signal again. I works Great, thanks!
