Review updated 1/29/2013: If you need to connect just a single client, such as a laptop or a home-theater PC, to your 802.11ac network, a Wi-Fi client USB adapter is much cheaper than a wireless bridge. Netgear's A6200 is one of the best.

Price when rated: $70
Lowest price: $64.00 via Dell Home

Pros

  • Very good long-range performance
  • Excellent industrial design
  • USB cradle

Cons

  • Much slower than the Asus USB-AC56 at close range
