Linksys WUSB600N V.2 USB Wireless Driver. Today we analyze the Wi-Fi N USB Adapter Linksys, namely, the model WUSB600N V2. It is a Wi-Fi adapter dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) which as you will see below, is very small, but by no means, resents what transfer rate and coverage refers (at near point environments access), in remote places resents mortally.

The small USB adapter comes in a standard size box includes a CD with drivers (old) and a USB base extension if we use this adapter on desktops that are cornered. We can see well in large signboard "High Performance" (high performance) but does not specify in which areas gives a good performance. In the box we can see short features in all languages where equipment is distributed, it also incorporates the general characteristics of the adapter on the sides and minimum equipment requirements. We opened the box and found some brief instruction manuals and CD that includes some old drivers.
We remove the protective cap from the USB, the difference between the USB connector and the whole is very small adapter then you will see the difference with another adapter. The USB cradle that brings the adapter, and has not left me good taste has since lost 0.5MB / s in exactly the same place with the same conditions, repeat testing in a very short space of time (5 minutes). With WMM enabled, channel set to No. 6 (farthest from Wi-Fi neighbors). Check your network (Inssider) channel width set to 40MHz, in b / g / n key WPA2-PSK AES.
The results indicate that this Linksys USB card has good performance when distances are relatively short. However, in the attic falls dramatically speed up the ridiculous figure of 1.1MB / s in the case of TP-LINK router, is overcome by all the aforementioned wireless cards, and not only that, but my card Alfa Network 500mW which is Wi-Fi G (maximum 54Mbps) surpasses because it gets 2.2MB / s. I also noticed that has very little reception sensitivity, any of the other cards is able to locate Wi-Fi networks from neighbors, but this card is not capable, forget to get drivers to put in monitor mode and auditing wireless networks because I will be very complicated.
5GHz speed tests. Time to analyze the 5GHz band, in this case we can not compare with other routers as it is the first dual-band router we have analyzed in the same circumstances has arrived. Small device, suitable for transport.Good performance in environments close to AP, either in the band of 2.4GHz or 5GHz band. In the 2.4GHz band has a very similar to TL-WN821N performance, although almost always exceeded, but this team is much more expensive than the TP-LINK equipment.
It is a USB wireless card to keep in mind if you want to connect to either of the 2 bands, though not conspicuously reception sensitivity if we are relatively close to the AP get good transfer speeds between computers.
