    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy as pie, Fast as lightnight Simple setup. Pretty much plug and play. I was using an old linksys G adapter from 2007. I was getting 10mbps max. Now I'm getting 60, exactly what I'm paying for through my ISP. I suppose that's a no-brainer, ha! But still, the AC55 rocks. If you're on the fence, just buy it. The bonus is you also get a rebate.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plug and Play Setup directions had me a little confused--I'm� not a hardware guy-- but I just went ahead and completed the procedure and the wifi works fine for my purposes(backup PC).� Have managed to apply for the large ASUS� rebate, but that process is also more complicated than it needs to be.
