Summary: I bought the ASUS adapter as part of a home rewiring project that included a NETGEAR Switch and a NETGEAR Wireless Router . I added the adapter to a machine that already included dual 1GB NICs. The goal was to eliminate one hard-wired NIC, but the performance of this adapter makes that impossible. Bottom line: Constant time-outs and poor throughput make the ASUS adapter nearly useless.
Summary: I bought this card to replace an older card that did not work on windows 7 64 bit. As soon as I plugged in the card everything seemed fine, drivers were installed and everything. Once I started loading web pages or trying to play any online games, basically anything that required the actual use of the network card, my computer would begin to skip (audio stutter, mouse skips) and I would have ridiculous load times and ping (600+).
Summary: I have an older PC that had Windows Vista (yuck) on it, and I recently upgraded to Windows 7 (32 bit). When I upgraded, the wireless G card I had previously installed no longer worked with W7. So, I had to get something to replace it. I have an Asus motherboard, Asus wireless N router (RT-N16), and have always loved their products, so it was a no-brainer for me to get the wireless N card.
Summary: I own 3 of these and they all work great. The connection speed is fast and the two adjustable antennas allow you to adjust them just right to get maximum signal strength. Two of them are used for home theater PCs so they need to be able to handle streaming Netflix. They also work quite well for streaming DVDs across the network from my other computers. Make sure to spend some time adjusting the position of each antenna to get the best possible signal strength.
Summary: The installation into my Dell Dimension E510 was simple and the card worked immediately but afterwards the computer started locking up after long idle periods. I upgraded the driver that was suggested on the Asus web site but the problem seemed to be worse. I downgraded the driver back to original one and sent an email to Asus Tech Support which indicated I should get a response within 48 hours. That didn't happen.

Summary: There isn't much to say about a wireless adapter except that it works or it doesn't. This one works well. It is fast and the board and antennae seem to be well constructed. I installed it on a system running 64-bit Windows. The Windows driver would not work with it at all and, in the beginning, neither would the ASUS driver. Device manager found the card but the network could not find it.
Summary: This card is simply okay at best. I bought it so I wouldn't have Ethernet wires running through my living room and kitchen. The signal is some what strong, average of 4 bar at about 20 feet away and through a couple of walls, though i thought it would be even better. This is my first pci wireless card so I can't really compare it with others but I can compare it with the wireless connectivity of other laptops. IMO laptop wireless card definitely outperform this one.
Summary: I bought this after I couldn't connect directly to my router, and it gave me a better connection than the last card I tried, a Wireless-G PCI model from Linksys. I haven't tried the utility to make a hotspot, and I didn't even install drivers. Windows 7 found and installed what was necessary, and I'm connected again. I can play mostly lag-free video games, and streaming video from my server connected to the router works as well, even with higher-bitrate files.
Summary: I just recently assembled my own gaming computer. As right now a wired connection is out of the question, I ended up buying a wireless adapter. I'm not looking for something that will work incredible miracles. I just want a nice wifi adapter that gives me at least a decent connection as my laptop has given me. (-2 stars for:) Unfortunately I'm going to have to look for another adapter as this one is absolutely dreadful.
Summary: The card work perfectly, I installed it and windows automatically installed the driver. But i later installed the manufactures drivers from their site. I also installed the utility app from the website, which is not necessary but pretty useful. the utility app shows all the available networks in the area and what channel their broadcasting on, it also show the quality and strength of you connection.
