AVOID TPLINK (purchased at MicroCenter)

Patryk, Amazon
4 September 2014
  • Summary: This card is terrible. Not Windows 7 or Windows 8 compatible. The drivers on the disk comes with a program that only installs on Windows XP. The support for drivers have been discontinued since the people creating it apparently "gave up". Im getting 2mbps of download speed using SpeedTest (i have tested on my Galaxy S3 getting over 18mbps on the SAME wifi). Never purchasing another TPLINK product.

Have yet to get it to work

Tee Dub, Amazon
15 December 2012
  • Summary: Couldn't get it to install - customer service was 'helpful' about offering suggestions but no matter what I did, there always seemed to be yet one more (time-consuming) thing to try to install hardware that should, in this day and age, simply install or tell you why it won't. Would not recommend.

worthless garbage

Bithabus, Amazon
1 October 2012
  • Summary: Running Win 7 64 bit, with new drivers from manufacturer website, this card would not detect any networks. Troubleshooting says "there may be a problem with the drivers". The included "utility" freezes instantly and is worthless. Spend a bit more and go with a real company.

Wouldn't fit PCI slot

Rsquare, Amazon
23 September 2012
  • Summary: When I tried putting it into my seven year old Dell Dimension 3000, it simply would not fit into the slot. Because a PCI slot is divided into a long section and a short section, the notch in the card needs to line up with the divider on the slot. If I tried putting the card in so that notch and divider lined up, the end-plate would not seat so that I could not screw it in. If I lined up the end plate, then I could not get notch and divider to line up.

work terribly with windows 7

TimothyLaunder, Amazon
13 November 2011
  • Summary: I need to pull it out and plug it again when I start windows every single time. No matter what driver I am using, the one comes along in the CD, the one downloaded from official website, or the Atheros driver originally comes with the windows 7. All these drivers wont be detected when I restarted my desktop computer. The adapter gives "can't start code (10)" in the device manager every time.

Dårligere signal

Marius, Komplett.no
24 August 2014
  • Summary: Kjøpte dette nettverkskortet fordi jeg ville erstatte et USB wifi. Viser seg nå at det billige USB wifien jeg kjøpte på Clas Ohlson mottar dobbel så kraftig signal. Å da er det kun en tynn vegg imellom router og nettverkskortet, og døren er åpen... Bomkjøp i mitt tilfelle.

  • Summary: Der Router steht 2 Meter vom PC weg und es ist kein Wand dazwischen und die Verbindung schwankt zwischen 1 und 5 Balken! Grauenhaft!

  • Summary: Eigentlich erwartet man von einer WLAN Karte für einen nicht-gamer-PC nicht viel. Sie soll funktionieren und dieses möglichst stabil und unauffällig. Leider fällt die Karte in beiden Punkten durch. Zunächst einmal gab es andauernd Treiberprobleme mit den mitgelieferten Treibern (ich benutze Windows 7 64 bit). Die "aktualisierten" Treiber des Herstellers (welche zuletzt ein Update im Jahr 2011 erfahren haben) haben diese halbwegs in den Griff bekommen.

  • Summary: VORSICHT AN ALLE, DIE WINDOWS 8.1 (64bit) NUTZEN!!!!!! Dank mangelndem Treibersupport führt die Nutzung dieser Karte entweder bereits bei Systemstart oder spätestens nach einigen Minuten Laufzeit zum kompletten Einfrieren des Systems! Bis der Hersteller nicht einen anständigen Treiber für Win8.1 bereitstellt, ist von dieser Karte dringend abzuraten!!
