Summary: Knocking a star off because of the installation procedure is complicated. The drivers for this product can only be accessed by installing the Asus WiFi software. The Asus WiFi software is incompatible with Windows 2012. You must install the software, then copy they drivers out of the installed directory. Remove the Asus WiFi software and reboot. Then manually point the wireless card to the drivers you copied.
Summary: Like others here, I have an Asus motherboard, which did not recognize the adapter initially. After wasting 45 minutes with the really poor support line, I updated the bios on my motherboard, and it was recognized. Product is great, but seriously, if I know more (far more) than the tech support guy from doing a few google searches, there is a serious problem.
Summary: Want fast WiFi then get this! This has been great to have, it has boosted and improved our WiFi in our basement apartment to full bars. Before this adapter was paired with NETGEAR AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender the internet was bad and at 2 bars out of 5, now with this set up and this adapter in my system it has been maxed out! This has been the best solution I could find other then a wired connection which we can not do in the basement apartment.
Summary: The first card worked for a bit then stopped. I tried to re-seat the card in the motherboard and it turned my computer ON when I inserted it into the slot! This problem would reproduce each time. I bought a second card. That worked amazingly well at first, 55 Mbps. Now I'm lucky to get 25. It's possible my service provider is to blame for that, but the card is also constantly disconnecting me every few minutes.
Summary: This is probably the best wireless networking card I've seen in a while. It's fast, has a long range, and it matches my Msi motherboard. I've managed download speeds on my home network of around 120 Mbps. It should be noted however, that to achieve these speeds you need a wireless router that is AC capable, otherwise you will end up with the same download speeds you had before.
Summary: This product worked fine for about a month. Then, it began to drop connection. It wasn't losing signal, I always had a full 5 bars. The adaptor would simply disconnect from internet. I put in a trouble ticket weeks ago, and have still not received any response. When I attempted to call, I kept getting told to call another number, in which nobody answers. I updated to the latest firmware, with no luck.
Verified Near-Gigabit Wi-Fi using Apple Airport Extreme
22 September 2014
Summary: I did some research and bought this card to accompany my Apple Airport Extreme. I have heard about other setups plagued by incompatibility between the AP and clients resulting in dropped connections. The newest macs use essentially the same Broadcom chipset used in this card-- and boy does the Broadcom chipset scream! I've been playing with quite a few 802.11ac adapters and cards and this Asus card is hands-down the fastest.
Summary: This thing is amazing. My son's computer previously had tired, slow wireless connectivity. He was only getting 4 or 5 Mbps. I installed this one in its place, and now he gets the full speed of our provider, currently 32 Mbps. If your desktop is suffering from poor WiFi connectivity or slow speeds, this is what you want to get. Well worth the price.
Summary: I bought this product thinking it had high quality build. It did.....for the first few months. After that something popped inside of it, it still WORKS but there's an annoying wine/scratching noise that you can hear from it. Trust me on this, it's hard to ignore it and the sound will eventually drive you insane. 1/5 for actually giving me stable internet.
Solved HD TV stream stuttering issue in large home
11 September 2014
Summary: I had a Linksys Wireless N Dual Band PCI card in a desktop that struggled to carry an HD TV signal over a WPA2 network (my AP is a Netgear Nighthawk R7000 which supports AC1900) in our new home. We moved recently now one of our satellite HTPC tvs is at far end of our new house. I read reviews here and decided to give it a shot. The ASUS card was easy to setup and install. I followed the advice posted here and only did driver install.
