  • Summary: I've had this for about a week or two after replacing my DWA-130E because of the frustrations with random disconnects. Installing it is a breeze since you don't have to waste (a little bit) of effort installing the antennae. Due to its form factor, it's compatible with pretty much any motherboard that supports PCI.
  • Pros: - Works as intended, - Utilizes 5 GHz band for minimal signal interference, - Doubled mbps speed from previous adapter (USB Nt2.4Ghz, - Detachable antennae
  • Cons: - Software is somewhat janky and barebones

  • Summary: I bought this for the dual link capability. That means 2.4 ghz AND 5 ghz. It work great for 2.4 ghz, but not at all for 5 ghz. This is because it is only has channels 1 thru 11 and my 5 ghz router is on channel 64 and above (actually, it's on channel 153 by default , but I can lower that to channel 63 {which is not reccommended}). I'm still looking for a desktop card that has the higher channels.

I was experiencing very slow speeds at first but found this thread to easily fix the problem http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1970955. Now I have a stable connection with great speed!

  • Summary: Installation went smooth. 2.4GHz connection is stable. 5GHz connection is unstable on WinXP Pro x64 with multiple driver versions, using the included utility, and using Windows Wireless Zero Config. Set Power Save Mode = Off as some have suggested. No difference. The included drivers and the drivers on the TP-Link site did not work very well on my system (XP Pro x64).
  • Pros: Easy to install., Connects fine over 2.4GHz AP.
  • Cons: Frequent connection drops/packet loss on 5GHz AP on WinXP Pro x64., Bundled wifi utility is ugly, buggy and awkward, just install the drivers.

  • Summary: I would have given this product 5 stars as it does everything I ask out of a wireless card. However, the other day all of my games started minimizing to desktop or entering windowed mode. I'm not talking once in a while, it was within 10 seconds of getting back into the game that it would happen again.
  • Pros: Pretty good reception, fast speeds, no connection drops, easy setup
  • Cons: driver issue causing games to minimize constantly or enter windowed mode (see summary)
