No problem with this device


Perhaps I got lucky with mine, but I haven't experienced any issues and felt the need to defend this device against all the negative complaints.

Great device, I'm actually coming on NewEgg to purchase a second one for my new office build, given that the first has been so reliable. Always easy to setup after a re-format, although I did lose the driver disk and have to manually copy the drivers...

Sometimes the connectivity bars read only 4/5 and I'm directly below the AT&T UVerse wireless router. This may not be a con though, as the floor is concrete and relatively thick

If you have a PCI 1 slot go with the rosewill wireless adapter. it works great.

great build quality. Looks great. Great "extension chord" design

Every time i turn my computer on its perfect for about 3 minutes. Then it drops connection. i have to refresh the internet status and its back on. This happens about every 10-20 minutes and very annoying when gaming online. None of my other adapters or...

It stinks!


I think I'll stick with what works downgrade back to another DLink. I almost want to try the 2500 model from Linksys but though never mind.

During the periods of time when it works it's great. It was easy to install, RTF manual please? Went to Linksys and up dated the drivers and there was no bull to get them. Install Instructions were nice as well. The dongle is easy on the eyes without...

I don't have time and couldn't list all of the negatives with only a 1000 characters. The first problem was it wouldn't wake up with the rest of the computer. Had to unplug and then plug it back up. I checked their forums for troubleshooting. Then I...

Third dead one in a row


Not buying any more Linksys wireless networking products other than their routers (which actually work).

When it works, it works well. Easily able to achieve a throughput north of 200Mbps between two computers on the same network (one wired, one wireless)

This is the third adapter in a row to have problems. First one completely died after showing instability for a few weeks. Second one died outright. Third one is showing instability again (failure to be recognized by Windows, network drop outs, etc)

Wish the antennas were stronger


A lot of reviewers seemed to love their AE1000. But I am thinking that maybe i should have spent a couple more dollars and got the AE2500. Linksys obviously ditched the AE1000 over 2 years ago. But the AE2500 has linksys Win7 drivers as new as 06/2011.

Aesthetically pleasing to the eye ; Looks really cool with the USB extension and base ; It's Dual-Band ; It's 300Mbps ; It's Cisco/Linksys ; It was cheap

The signal strength is very weak ; 67 RSSI at about 10 feet away ; 2.4 Ghz band, 5Ghz band was even worse ; I did some side by side comparisons with a generic N adapter i purchased last year, and the generic adapters strength was nearly twice that of...

Pay the extra $10 - $15 to get this brand


I will admit that I do not speak computer ... when I moved my office a few rooms over, I did not feel like snaking cables in order to move my cable modem/router (see review for the Motorola unit I bought) so I did a google search to figure out what I ...

Easy set up in most cases. Made well. Highly reviewed

Not an easy set up in my case. Costs more

Linksys leads the pack again


Although I'm confused why Linksys is now "Cisco Linksys" (muddying up a respected consumer electronics brand name), they're still leading the pack with their home networking gear. The AE1000 is an 802.11bgn USB adapter that really offers stellar...

Dual-band N support, 64-bit drivers, stylish appearance, affordable
