I had a choice to move my internet that has telephony integrated in the modem or purchase a product that would allow me to move my PC and keep everything else right where it was. I really didn't want to relocate my modem just to move my PC so I began looking at other options. My modem and Nighthawk router were already in the perfect place in the house. My voices now were to find an internal and inferior wireless network card or this USB wireless stick. I had no experience with these but at $70 and plug and play it seemed like a no brainer. Not to mention the AC technology in this Network adaptor pulls in 5ghz very strong. The product comes with a optional corded base to plug the stick into so placement on top of a desk is possible and reception is better or simply plug into an open USB slot. You won't regret buying this one as I sure don't. It has the latest technology and is easily installed. Not much more to say except Outstanding!

I use a dual-boot desktop with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04. Windows setup went smooth. There is no way to get this device to work in Ubuntu, not with NDISWRAPPER, not with Wine, not through any method currently available - the drivers just won't work. Hence the 3 star review. Unless you want to roll your own kernel, you'll have to wait until someone develops a Linux driver - Don't even bother with Netgear, they don't provide support for any Linux platforms (shame, they are missing a growing group of pc users).

Transfer speed can be limited if you are using USB 2.0 (you'll never come close to the advertised speed). With USB 2.0, your limit is about 480Mbps signal and 280Mbps effective speed. Speed is much better with USB 3.0. I also ran into a speed wall with the limits on the wireless router (you won't get the "ac" speed without an "ac" router). Although I didn't have this problem, others with this adapter have run across transfer limits from their service provider.

My intentions with this item

By Mrs. Abernathy

Comments about NETGEAR AC1200 Dual Band WiFi USB Adapter A6200:

I was really wanting to find a wireless piece that would stay connected for my husbands desktop computer. He loves to play battle pirates on facebook for a fun pass time. So as I am in the other room (office) working on line as an independent agent for a call center, I will often enough hear him grumble "geez.." along with some other words when he is dropped from the wifi service and loses his game fights. This happens maybe a few times within a 5 hour stretch. Maybe I will try to find a bigger & better one and then use this one on the third computer for my 2 year old to go onto abcmouse.com Then I will feel better about them still enjoying their time on the computer as I am working.

Very fast access - easy to install

By Bob Fox

Comments about NETGEAR AC1200 Dual Band WiFi USB Adapter A6200:

This Netgear AC1200 Dual Band WiFi USB Adapter was easy to install and has great speed. I just inserted the included CD, clicked the Setup and followed the 6 easy steps in the instructions. It is great that it comes with a dock, so the USB does not block two ports. I was only not sure why the instructions would tell you that if connected to the Internet, "Check for Updates". I was installing it because I could not connect to the Internet! Other than that, the connection speed is fast and it reconnects easily upon reboot.

Comments about NETGEAR AC1200 Dual Band WiFi USB Adapter A6200:

These little things are eay to use. You can buy several to connect several things to the same router so you do not have to worry about a bunch of cables everywhere. If the computer (laptops, wireless) is not hooked up to anything (lines) you don't have to worry about lightening, ect. They make your computer portable but still connected.

Buyer Beware

By James

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about NETGEAR AC1200 Dual Band WiFi USB Adapter A6200:

This product is good while it lasts. The Netgear 6200 Adaptor is one of netgears mistakes as it does not work after a while. The product is great when it works as it allows for great speeds for a low cost however problems will shortly appear. In the begining of this product windows 8 drivers were problimatic and hardly worked. They disconnected and ultimatly made it worthless to have the product. However soon after they were fixed i noticed bigger problems. This adapter often overheats and turns itself off. Event consulting the device manager to turn off low power mode doesn't fix it. I believe that this device had potential but it ultimatly failed in its hardware design.
