WUSB6100M vs. WUSB6300

[ Edited ]

I currently own the EA9500.

 

There are 3 computers in my house. 

 

Which wireless adapter, WUSB6100M or WUSB6300 will provide my computers with a faster interenet connection?

 

I plan to upgrade all 3 computers with a new wireless adapter.

 

Thank you.

WUSB6100M 433mbps

WUSB6300    867mbps

 

WUSB6100M has MU-MIMO which would do better load balancing between multiple clients but is not faster that the WUSB6300 for any single connection.

Re: WUSB6100M vs. WUSB6300

Thanks for the reply, I guess what I am asking is if all 3 computers were to run at the same time for various reasons.

 

Web browsing, Netflix, pc game would the mu-mimo make that much of a difference? because the WUSB6300 is twice the max speed of the WUSB6100M and in my case I only have 3 devices running.

 

So would it be better for me to use the WUSB6100M or the WUSB6300 for my computers.

 

Thanks.

Clarification: Which wireless adapater would make the overall interenet connection for all 3 users faster?

 

Thanks

I recommend the WUSB6100M in that case.

 

The WUSB6100M will take advantage of the EA9500 MU-MIMO and provide overall better Internet wireless load balancing.
