OK, first thing's first. This stick works. I can hit my maximum download speed from upstairs with this (100 Mbps+). 3 other adapters I have tried come nowhere close, awesome.
The bad news is: the bundled driver on the CD is faulty: it is NOT COMPATIBLE WITH STEAM. Spent a whole day pulling my hair out over this. Finally discovered older drivers on the linksys website, installed these and fixed the Steam issue. Trawling the Steam forums shows that this is a common issue with linksys adapters, so, if you use Steam, think carefully before you buy, and don't install the bundled drivers. If you have bought this, and have the steam issue, the drivers page is: support.linksys.com/en-eu/support/adapters/
You want the download at the bottom, (Linksys Connect Setup Software for PC). Downloads a 3.something driver, drivers on disc are 5.something.

Style Name: AC1200 Dual Band 3.0 Verified Purchase
I had been trying new AC1900 routers with very little increase in speed. Buying this Linksys WUSB6300 Dual Band Adaptor and disabling the internal wireless card on my HP PC made a considerable difference to internet connection speeds. In addition, the internal card only worked at 2.4Ghz whereas this adaptor is dual band and using the 5Ghz band has also made a considerable difference. In quantitative terms after installing this dongle my PCs speed using fibre broadband went up from around 21Mbps to 32Mbps plus, the upload speed also increased.

In physical terms this adaptor is quite bulky, not very elegant and does get warm after a few hours use. The size means that if you plug it directly into a USB port it can obscure other ports if they are close. The answer is to use a good quality USB socket with a modest extension cable. Also, compared to other offerings this isn't one of the cheapest AC1200 adaptors either, but it does deliver reasonable performance which is the primary consideration. Recommended.

To avoid any confusion this review is for the Linksys WUSB6300 AC1200 Dual-Band Wireless-AC USB Adapter (900Mbps).
Installation of the Wireless Adaptor does need the setup files on the CD provided so if you have no DVD drive on your netbook or laptop you will need to download from the Linksys site. The Windows 7 download also applies to Windows 8.1 as confusingly reading the driver information for Windows 8 you may assume it is just plug'n play.
Once installed and the wireless router password is entered I recommend you go to Control Panel- Device Manager-Network adaptor WUSB6300-Power Management- Allow the Computer to turn off this device to save power and uncheck the box. Some users have thought this was a fault with the adaptor.
The dual band 2.4Ghz and 5 Ghz selection may need to be changed on your router. You may find better speed on the 5Ghz but in general a better range using 2.4Ghz. I have found it 100% reliable with no drop outs and the only minor criticism is the width of the device. This may not matter on most PC's or laptops but I was using it on an Intel NUC where the USB3 ports were side by side. This effectively blocked the use of the spare adjacent USB3 socket on the front.

Style Name: AC1200 Dual Band 3.0 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
WiFi dongles seem to be getting smaller all the time - I have one that's about the size of a tab of chewing gum - but Linksys plainly hates this fashion, because its WUSB6300 is pretty big by dongle standards. This not only means that it looks a bit unsightly, it also means that there's a greater possibility of it being knocked out or even broken in the USB slot. On the plus side, you won't lose it in a hurry - unless it gets knocked out or broken in the USB slot.

Setting it up with my Windows 7 PC was very straightforward, although I had to use the included setup CD to do so as the Windows online drivers service was unable to find drivers for it; this is probably the first time I've seen that happen. The CD doesn't appear to provide anything in the way of a control panel to configure the dongle, so I'm assuming that its dual-band functionality is automatic. The included paper manual is pretty much useless, consisting of just three instructions, one of which is to put the CD in your computer's CD drive.

Once you've installed the drivers from the CD, which took me all of a minute at most, the setup program lets you select and connect to your chosen WiFi network. Both of my networks - 2.4 and 5GHz - showed up so I assume that the dual-band function is turned on by default. Interestingly, a couple of my neighbours' networks that I had never seen before also showed up, so the dongle appears to have quite a good `sniffing' ability.

In use, the Linksys has been pretty much faultless from the start. I don't have a `Wireless AC' router so I've only been able to test the dongle to `Wireless N' speeds, even so it has provided a consistently solid and unwavering connection.

Style Name: AC1200 Dual Band 3.0 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Okay first off; the plus points:

- It works fine in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 (I have 64-bit versions of both)
- WirelessAC uses a more point-to-point transfer of data (as opposed to a radius approach of WirelessN), so you get a faster transfer that is more resilient to obstacles (walls etc). We only have partitioned walls so it wasn't noticeable.
- Its compatible with all older wireless routers, so don't be afraid to buy this if you need a new dongle - its going to support you well in the future

On the downside however:

- It won't work on Windows 8/8.1 without the install CD. Simply plugging the device into your PC does nothing. It is amazing that the device driver is not built into the device like most other modern dongles
- The dongle is huge, meaning that if your USB ports are close together, you won't get anything in the adjacent one (take note wireless mouse users!)
- Apparently WirelessAC's broadcast technology (5GHz) means that the range isn't as good as WirelessN. So its not going to work well in large premises. I can't test this unless you buy me a larger house.

Now the for transfer speeds. Using the same 450Mb file for each one:

Wireless N (actually 'g') to my old router
- 450mb download 31 seconds
- 450mb upload 102 seconds

Wireless AC to a wireless AC router
- 450mb download 14 seconds
- 450mb upload 49 seconds

Markedly faster than WirelessN then, but NO WHERE NEAR the advertised speeds from the marketing people. The box advertises 867Mbps when I actually got 257Mbps (32 megabytes per second). This should be plenty fast enough however to stream HDTV.
