Full speed 802.11n operation in ad-hoc mode?

Do any Linksys USB 802.11n adapters support full speed 802.11n operation (300 Mbps) in ad-hoc (peer to peer) mode?

You can use linksys WUSB600N,WUSB300N,WMP600N....They will work fine in ad-hoc mode.

Thanks for the reply, but can you confirm that they actually work at 300 Mbps in ad-hoc mode.

Sorry if I appear sceptical, but the majority of 802.11n adapters from other manufacturers support ad-hoc but only at 54 Mbps. They don't tell you that in the blurb of course, which is the reason for my scepticism - once bitten twice shy!  It was the same when 802.11g was new - most cards only supported 11 Mbps in ad-hoc, and even now many need software tweaks to get them up to 54Mbps.

 

Can I ask if you've actually tested this on any of these devices? 

If so, I'd feel a lot more confident.

 

Thanks again...
