    A good product

    I use this item for my desktop PC. As it is impractical to run an Ethernet cable from the PC's location to the router, I went this route and got this item. It works ok. My speed is slow, but considering the environment the product is in, I am not docking it for the performance. One reason I am giving it a high rating is that it is compatible with N networks, which is what I have. This is a product designed for AC networks, but it is backwards compatible with N networks as well. That was the selling point for me. There are also a few walls and obstacles between the adapter and the router, so I am not too surprised at the slow PC Internet performance. All in all, I recommend this product. The installation is quite easy to follow (make sure you follow it! Taking a shortcut will be trouble), and I expect that the performance will be top notch if the product is used to its full potential.

    Great little dongle for the $$$

    I recently had to move into a new apartment and unfortuantely could not hard-wire my gaming PC to my router anymore. Although I would never recommend wireless over a wired connection to your internet box, this little dongle is a great alternative. I game pretty regularly (I live by myself with a 100 mbps internet package) and have never had an issue with lag or download speeds. Defintely worth the purchase!

    I am a NetGear user of about 10 years and,when my last NetGear WNDA 3100v.3 wireless adapter finally died, I opted for a new NetGear AC600 wireless and it has performed up to par with my other NetGear wireless. In fact, it streams better than the old adapter and I have little or no interruptions watching movies now.

    Works as designed, no connection issues, reliable. The driver takes a minute to load and negotiate, but stays connected. It only requires USB 2, and I'm using it on Win 7. If you want a cost effective wireless solution without the need for a dongle this will more than suffice.

    My PC computer uses an USB plugin adapter for wireless internet and the one I had wore out. I got the net-gear USB adapter because the store clerk said it would work well with the net-gear router. It also is smaller than the one I had and makes it easier to use the USB port beside it.. Pleased with the way it works.

    Always having to plug my laptop into the ethernet connection was getting to be a pain. Plus I didn't want to buy a new computer. This product worked great to get my wireless connection back up and running. Thank you.

    Needed new wireless adapter, alrady have a netgear router. Quick painless install except for having to install adapter software when I already had Netgear router software. Still, Netgear works and is much easier to deal with than other brands.

    Fits into a compact USB slots that where closes spaced and picked up a signal even within an closed electrical enclosure. Windows drivers seem to be plug and play and DVD comes with drivers if needed.

    Bought this wifi adapter because I needed to set up a desktop in an area with no Ethernet jack. Installation was simple, drivers installed in less than a minute. I get good speed especially considering where the router is located.

    The wireless router supplied by my fiber provider is supposed to support twice that speed but I top out at 300 with actual throughput being slightly less. It is significantly better with a Netgear R7000 router.

    We have a corner where, for some reason, we can’t get WiFi. This did the job. The only issue I had was that we had to dL the drivers because our system has no disc drives.

    Works well. I did not have a CD Rom drive to Install the software but I just googled it and it was fine. Make sure you have something to do this like another laptop or a USB drivr

    I had an older PC which did not have an internal wireless card. The NetGear Mini Adapter was a quick and cost effective way to get connected to the internet via my wireless router.

    Good adapter to maximize wifi connectivity. Slightly increased my internet speed (not great but good). Would definitely recommend since it’s very affordable.

    Works fine, but, as always with this kind of hardware, could have a faster data throughput. But, is plenty fast for most internet needs...

    The only negative was the driver had to be downloaded to other media. ( only a hassle ). However the device works and the connection is stable.

    Connected a very old desktop computer to WiFi within minutes. Plugged it in, followed the steps, and connected to router in another room.

    For an usb WiFi this is really fast. The knockoff brands let me down but netgear is fast and reliable just a little pricey
