ASUS AC600 reviews

USB-AC51 Dual Band Wireless AC600 Wi-Fi Adapter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get all things on your network I now have my PC on my MAC WiFi network. Some network knowledge was required to get PC on the network. It took some time to get the PC on.
Date published: 2015-11-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too picky about OSX version While it says OSX support it doesn't work with Yosemite. There are cheaper alternatives that announce compatibility with Lion and they still works with newer OSX versions. Hope they can update their driver soon, its not the cheapest of all the USB Wifi. Still I can recommend it to a windows only friend.
Date published: 2015-01-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent value and easy setup Upgraded from an old Linksys WRTU54G-TM router to the ASUS RT-N56U dual band wireless router (also highly recommended) at the same time and I have a noticeable improvement. I've been using it for several weeks now and haven't had a single dropout or lost signal. Very satisfied, would definitely buy again.
Date published: 2014-12-18
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for MAC I bought this for my Mac and it does not work for it. There are round about ways to get it to work for Mac but it seems too overwhelming to do it. I don't know how it work for a PC. But if you are buying for your Mac machine and are not good with the Terminal don't buy it.
Date published: 2017-02-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great no drop outs Installs quickly and easily. Many more times more sensitive than the wifi card that,s installed in my laptop .PC. Scans three time more available networks than the wifi card.
Date published: 2017-01-23

Date published: 2018-10-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dose the job Can see a big improvement in performance ( wifi speed)
