bang for a $20 bill!

Theodore P., Newegg
13 March 2014
  • Summary: - No cons to speak of.
  • Pros: - Biggest pro (probably only for nerds): supports HostAP! ('hostapd' in linux.)
  • Cons: - THIS IS NOT A CON AT THIS PRICE POINT, but this card is only 2.4GHz. At $18 you can't beat an internal card with this quality and with these features but if you can afford $10 more then the TP-Link's WDN3800 is dual-band and equally as great of a card.

SUPER affordable wireless adapter

Sean B., Newegg
17 February 2014
  • Summary: Being that the TL-WN881ND is ONLY a 2.4GHz wireless card… the reception in my basement is about what I expected… just so-so. That’s why I eventually switched to a dual band wireless adapter like the TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 (before going wired).
  • Pros: First impressions (before powering up and setting up):

Disappointed

Michael F., Newegg
9 January 2014
  • Pros: The card works, albeit, poorly.
  • Cons: Tested with the computer 10 feet from the router, got 5 bar signal. The best speeds attained were 35 down/ 15 up (Mb/s). One room away, the signal drops to 3 bars and speed drops to 15 down/ 5 up. We have a wireless laptop and an Ipad used in areas farther away and they both average 40 Mb/s down and 20 up.

Big Performance,Small Form Factor

David S., Newegg
18 October 2013
  • Pros: PCI-E 1X
  • Cons: Not much of note worth taking an egg over. The antennas are short so you should plan ahead if you plan on having them hidden behind a huge tower opposite the location of your router. I thought it was odd the spanish instructions i got were for the model 781 not the 881

Very Reliable

michael b., Newegg
28 September 2013
  • Pros: The TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N300 PCI Express Adapter has proven to be Very Reliable, I have been using this for weeks now and has never lost connection and has had very consistent speeds. I am currently using the TL-WN881ND in my PC "Win 7 x64" in the bedroom which is about 70' away and through 4 walls and I'm getting about 70% signal strength. What is really tereffic is that I am getting between 40 Mbps and 60 Mbps from my Network Attached Storage Devices and whe...
  • Cons: As of right now I have had on problems with the TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N300 PCI Express Adapter, I will update my review if I have any problems, but I really do not see that happening, I have many TP-Link Products and really have had no issues with reliability.
