    Netgear A6210 Reviews

    AC1200 Wi-Fi USB 3.0 Adapter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. When I ordered my AC-1200 wireless router a couple years back, it was to replace an older one that wasn't as fast. The wireless in my laptop was N so that is what I wanted to work with. I have always relied on LAN cable to connect the desktop but a lightning strike last year came through the USB to my Ham Radio and ruined it so I decided to get rid of the LAN cable and after reading about this wireless 3.0 adapter, I ordered two, not realizing my wireless router was already the newer, faster ac. With the N connection my download is about 70 Megs, tops. With this wireless adapter, my download is 175 Megs and that is as fast as with LAN so this adapter is every bit as good here, as a direct connection to the router. Also, this connection is now so strong that everywhere in the house, the speed does not change. This is an excellent adapter and not obtrusive.

    Is this better than the N900 for a PC?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Netgear AC 1200 would technically be better. But this would also depend on your wireless router. If your router does not support 802.11ac or if you do not plan on purchasing a router with 802.11ac, then I would just suggest to go with the N900.
