Linksys WGA600N Review

Rock on! Wow, what a difference an adapter makes. The throughput on this is unbelieveable. I didn't all of sudden get mad skillz over the last couple of days, but since upgrading my XBox 360 to a Linksys WGA600N on Friday all of sudden I am ending up with the most points on Call of Duty 4. Four bars, all the time. No drops. All the while my Mac is uploading a gig of pictures. Very impressed with the connection reliability of the WGA600N relative to my old Xbox wireless adapter. I haven't had to touch the configuration once since I installed it.

By the way, for you Mac owners out there... the web-management utility for the WGA600N doesn't work in Safari 3.0, but I did get it to work under Firefox. Still a little disappointed that Linksys doesn't have better Mac support, but once its up and running, its a dream.

Hi James,

I just bought the adapter myself along with a new Linksys N router. There is another Linksys router which is dual band which I am thinking would be better. Might I ask what router you are using?

Thanks,

I have a WRT150N router. Works quite nicely together, which is interesting because I've had a lot of performance problems with non-Linksys devices connecting to that router - seems to like to drop connections quite a bit.

James,

I am using the Linksys WRT160N router and I cannot seem to get the setup right. Might you impart your wisdom regarding how you got it to work? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!
Derek

take a look at the WRT610N-that is the new dual-band Wireless-N router from linksys. it will give you 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz at the same time. Better gaming-now all on 5Ghz and the surfing will now be 2.4Ghz.
