Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhonda from Inexpensive and It Works! I bought Linksys about several weeks ago. I had been using Clear for a few years for $40.00 a month for the last six months, which gave me direct access to the internet from my desktop. Unfortunately, because Clear was unlimited and taking customers from Sprint, they were bought out by Sprint. No more Clear as of November 6, 2015. How was I going to get connected, now? I read something online about turning your desktop wireless and began searching for something. During my search, I found Linksys, read the reviews and decided to give it a try for only $29.99! It was easy to install. I now use my landlord's wifi for free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by veryblueflame from Works Like a Charm! I changed to wireless and needed something my ancient (10 year-old) desktop computer could use to communicate with a wireless "hot spot". I tried so many different types of wireless adapters, it was getting ridiculous. They would work for a few days or a couple of weeks, then quit. This little gem has worked since I first installed it several months ago and has not been a problem at all so far. I have Windows 7 and a Verizon Mifi. I highly recommend this this adapter!

Rated 1 out of 5 by pmichener10 from HORRIBLE I bought one of these at a local radioshack about 2 weeks ago. Every time I restart my computer I need to redo the setup. Half the speed of my old computer. USB port already broke in 2 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A Reviewer from Works better than I hoped. I was so surprised when an older "Pentium" desktop went wifi, using the AE1200, and software, like a brand new laptop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by The Bob from Works with Windows 8 or 10? I could not find a Windows 8 driver and had to use a different USB device. It worked exceptional with Windows 7. I don't know why Linksys was not ready for Windows 8

Rated 4 out of 5 by KarolW from Compatiblity with Win10 I had an issue with this product till I installed it in compatibility mode in Win10. I used the Vista setting and poof!! it worked. only thing is that when doing updates Win10 wants to uninstall it to complete updates. just keep the cd or download it on the site for reinstalling it in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carvinwood from Does not crash My previous router , from another company, went offline at least once a day. I was not a happy camper. The linksys router has not crashed once in the 6 months I have had it. The signal strength is also very good.
