Questions and Answers

Do you have you a question about the Netgear AC1200 WiFi USB 3.0 Adaptor 802.11ac?

Q: how can I increase the speed of the adapter to 1200 Mbps. it's currently on 867 Mbps!
Answer by Website User on 11th January 2016
I've no experience with this adapter unfortunately. If your network is running at 1200Mbps and this adapter isn't connecting at that automatically then it's likely going to be a setting somewhere, I'd recommend getting in touch with Netgear's technical support as they should be able to go through this with you. -Danlevan

Pretty much what I wrote below but to add it's a Torx 9 (or thereabouts) that you need to remove the antenna. And I finally read the manual; I really can't see why anyone would want to install the bloat that is the Netgear 'Genie'. It looks to me as though all the functionality is contained in and can be adjusted from the USB Adapter Properties drivers' page under Device Manager. I'll be sticking with the stand-alone install (or simply using the 7 driver files I've extracted). And I was testing using Windows 8.1 not 10.

Read the Amazon 'one star' reviews and believe them for a change. This adapter has a serious driver problem (Media Tek/Ralink based). Throughput fluctuates from the ballpark 150Mbps you'd expect to see down to 1Mbps, at which point you will wonder why pages are loading so slowly, check your router status and then realize that it's this adapter. All in all a disappointing product from Netgear ... it looks pretty but doesn't work very well. Sorry, something like this should just work straight out of the box. I don't have time for faffing (well, I do, obviously!). Oh, and even in standalone-installation mode Netgear still drops a program in Startup which 'phones home', ostensibly to check for driver updates. I tried to extract the drivers-only using 7-Zip but it didn't work out. Post-install, I copied the Drivers folder (7 files) to a removable drive and then reinstalled Windows from a recent Acronis image. Those 7 files seem to be all you need. 3 stars because, as always, maybe I'm the problem; I'm testing at a distance of less than 5 metres from the TP-Link VR400 router so there's always a possibility that the signal is too strong (is that a thing?). [And the antenna is not detachable, except in the sense that there are 2 small screws securing it that will need a jeweller's screwdriver ... and who knows what happens after you've unscrewed them.]
