Rated 1 out of 5 by from Linksys AE 1200 N300 does not work w/Windows 10 Just purchased this after I was having trouble connecting a desktop without wifi to our home network. Since I have a Linksys router, I thought this would be the most compatible. After much on-line research and trouble shooting (hours), it turns out they don't have a driver for Windows 10. Who would have thought? Not worth the trouble to return it, but would have been nice had it stated specifically that it is not Windows 10 compatible. Could have saved me some money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from one of the worse adapters made It loses connection every 30 minutes to an hr, that I have to reset the adapter or remove it from the usb and reinsert it. When watching a movie it begins to buffer like on dial up. Takes long to load a page. Went on Linksys site to update the firmware and it did nothing to improve it. Contacted tech support but they didnt have any solutions or new drivers for the device. I have 120 Mbs internet so is not my connection. Waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor performance I bought this product expecting to be able to use it with slightly less speed than what a ethernet cable would provide, what i got was a 95% decrease in speed and choppy and laggy connection. When I contacted support the only response I got was "This adapter doesn't work with windows 10 and we currently don't have any that do"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AE1200 This product worked great with window 8. I upgraded to windows 10 and does not work at all now. Is there a windows 20 driver for the Linksys AE 1200?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Windows 8 drivers Bought a new AE1200 hoping it would work well with windows 8, problem is, windows 8 dumps the driver and connection is lost after an hour. Have to unplug AE1200 and re insert in to USB port. Please fix driver issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work on windows 10. Works at times. I found out that since Linksys does not update drivers, I will NEVER buy anything from them again !!!!! Windows 10 will not update.
