Comments about Linksys Wireless AC 580 Dual-Band Mini USB WiFi Adapter:
I bought this s few weeks ago. My NIC card was not capable of 5Ghz. The Linksys AE6000 Wireless-AC Mini USB Adapter put it right up there. Instillation was a snap. Just plug it in to a USB port and Windows does the rest.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Problems with Windows 10
from Jackson, MI, United States
It worked well for a couple of weeks, then my Windows 10 laptop started crashing to a blue screen of death with the following message: "Your PC ran into a problem and it needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you. Stop Code: BAD POOL HEADER". This happened several (3 or 4) times per day. Investigating this, I came upon a suggestion to remove all external devices from the laptop, so I removed the AE6000. The laptop then worked fine without error for several days. I then plugged the device back in and within 2 minutes the laptop crashed again with the same message. I then went to the Linksys support page to see if there was a driver update available, and their latest driver version was 5.01.25.0 which is the exact version that I have. So, I would not recommend this device for Windows 10.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Refurbished AE6000 is a winner
from Redmond, WA, United States
I needed a backup internet connection for when my horrible Comcast internet service goes down. I needed to find a USB adapter for my desktop PC so I could tether (wireless connect my PC) to my AT&T phone and stay online. The AE6000 is very small and offers a fast and reliable connection. Was an easy install on Win 10. I use the second AE6000 with my Raspberry Pi 2 Rune Audio music server.

I've had this product for about a month and I've had great results. Slightly larger than I expected, but still smaller than an inch. Great reception, fast browsing!
Pleased with performance until after upgrading to Windows 10. Would like to see a driver so can enjoy the improved performance on Windows 10.

thought more would happen
from Beverly Hills, FL, United States
I wanted to update equipment to work with win 10 and found out that the install disk doesn't work and only drivers for win 8.1 were supplied.
from North Kansas City, MO, United States
Bought this for my ThinkStation Lenovo D30 server instead of installing the wireless card, of all the computers I own the D30 with the AE6000 Linksys has by far the fastest internet connection of all, it jives well with the WRT1900AC router extremely well. I don't know exactly why, but this set up achieves download speeds 2 to 3 times faster than anything else I have.
No windows 10 compatable
from Indiana, United States
I have not been able to use this as there is no upgrades for windows 10.
Simple to enstall.

My problem was that I didn't need it, the links router I have does the trick. So I have two of the AE600's and an N600 that work well but I cannot use.
