If you have an AC router you need one or more of these.
on May 28, 2015
I've had a Linksys AC router for more than a year but none of our computers had AC adapters. I tried a range extender but that didn't do the job. So I bought this AC adapter and was immediately impressed. Five bars anywhere in the house. Since it will stay permanently working in my wife's desktop, I decided I needed one for my laptop and ordered another one. It arrived today and it is working fine. Strangely, the second one came in a different box but otherwise identical, including the info on the box. In fact the hardest thing about installing this adapter is opening the box. Linksys offers one with the same specs but for about $5 more. Since Belkin bought Linksys I'll bet they are identical.
Another big plus is that it is USB 3.0 which may speed up things, although I have no way of knowing. Anyway, I'm delighted with the adapter and just may buy a third one for my wife's laptop which also has a b.g.n adapter speed and only gets three bars with the range extender. The only negative I can think of is that if your USB ports are side by side you may lose the use of one of them at the same time because of the width of this adapter, but that shouldn't be a big deal.
