Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't really approach AC speeds I've been trying this device on and off with my older laptop USB3 port for a couple years now. My router and internet are capable of over 200MBPS with other devices. This gets me from 50 up to 60 on my laptop. Not worth the cost/effort.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shipped what I did not want I told the CSR exactly what I did I NOT want, which was on of your units that I had just returned to a store. So he then proceeded to ship me the exact same unit which I already knew did not do what I needed it to do. Will return this and see if a more knowledgeable staff person can be found, maybe one whose native language is English and will not talk over me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Difficult To Setup But Worth The Trouble I plug it in and all I got was a steady orange light. Installed the CD and Windows 10 would not let me install. Kept stating I needed to run as administrator, and I am the administrator. After about an hour trying to get the CD to run. I never could. I downloaded the Setup files off the Internet. This worked. The light turned to steady white so I uninstalled the current Wi Fi adapter and clicked on my Wi Fi, entered password and it connected. I went from 2.4 to 5G. Where I was getting around 5-6 MB I was now getting 110 MB. It was hard setting up, but it greatly sped up the Wi Fi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys WUSB6100M USB Adapter It connects with my router as soon as I plug it into my PC. Gives me 5 megahertz. It is much smaller and easier to use than the older model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the investment Works great. With Windows 10, just plug the device into a USB port and Windows does the rest.

The manual says nothing about using it for Enterprise use. If this adapter does not support EAP-TLS, do you have any adapters that do?

Asked by: Rick
Hi! The WUSB6100M supports the older WPA RADIUS and may not support EAP-TLS. EAP-TLS is the authentication protocol most commonly deployed on WPA2-Enterprise networks. The WUSB6300 adapter supports WPA2 Personal/Enterprise.

WPA2 Enterprise requires the use of a RADIUS server. EAP-TLS is one of the Enterprise authentication methods. Does "WPA / WPA Radius" mean this adapter supports EAP-TLS?

Asked by: Rick
Hi, Rick. The Linksys WUSB6100M is not yet tested/confirmed to work with EAP-TLS protocol.

Does this adapter support WPA2 Enterprise, specifically WPA2 EAP-TLS authentication? If so, where can I find the instructions for installing/importing the certificate?

Asked by: Rick
Hi, Rick. The Linksys WUSB6100M supports only the following security modes: WEP (64-bit and 128-bit keys), WPA / WPA2 Personal and WPA / WPA Radius.
