Ease of Use

I had put off upgrading my 3 Linksys wireless 54G adapters since they still worked with my new Linksys WUSB600N Router (mainly because of cost). But I finally spent the money for these 3 new Linksys Wireless N network adapters (I have 4 computers in my house). They are extremely easy to set up and use, and it takes the load off running the 2.4 GHz frequency only. I can now take advantage of the 5GHz frequency. Besides 4 computers, I have 2 XBOX 360s running live off from Microsoft 2.4GHz adapters. Spreading the use between 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz has really improved connection/signal strength and performance in my house. Remember to remove your current adapter(s) from your computer(s)' programs first (add/remove Programs), next load the Linksys install CD for the N Adapter(s), and lastly plug in the N adapter(s) to the USB port. The included USB adapter base is very handy.

Expensive but worth it.

by Dan on 4/16/2008

This product works great. I thought it was a little expensive but I cannot complain about the performance. My connection speed is avrageing 575K. Much faster than my old 2.4ghz band wireless card. I have this new card set up on the 5ghz band, much less interference. I also like the usb attachment stand that it came with. Read More

Product Overview

The Ultra RangePlus Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter is the simple way to add or upgrade wireless connectivity in your desktop or notebook computer. Just plug it into your computer's USB port and enjoy incredible high-speed wireless network access.

The Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter uses the very latest wireless networking technology, Wireless-N (draft 802.11n). By overlaying the signals of multiple radios for each band, Wireless-N's "Multiple In, Multiple Out" (MIMO) technology multiplies the effective data rate. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the range and reduce "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area. The robust signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections much farther than standard Wireless-G. And with Wireless-N, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. It works great with standard Wireless-G, -A, and -B equipment, but when both ends of the wireless link are Wireless-N, the throughput can be increased even more by using twice as much radio band.

Dual-band wireless networks operate in both the 2.4 and 5 gigahertz radio bands at the same time, effectively doubling the available wireless bandwidth. For instance, you could set up your network to handle video streaming on one radio band, and use the other band for simultaneous data transfers -- avoiding any interference or collisions that would degrade the video performance. The Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter allows you to connect using whichever band works the best for your situation.

To help protect your data and privacy, your wireless connection is protected by industrial-strength encryption. The included Setup Wizard will walk you through configuring the adapter to your network's settings, step by step.

The incredible speed of Wireless-N makes it ideal for media-centric applications like streaming video, gaming, and Voice over IP telephony, and gives you plenty of headroom to run multiple media-intense data streams through the network at the same time, with no degradation in performance. Get your computer connected to either band of Wireless-N, as well as Wireless-G, Wireless-A, and Wireless-B networks with the Ultra RangePlus Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter from Linksys.
