Excerpt: I read horror stories about the expensive Wi-Fi adapters. It seemed that none of them worked well. So, I called B&H and explained my confusion and issue: I had an important presentation and didn't have time to futz around w/ questionable adapters! The guy said, "Let me ask" and came back with this recommendation. Price is right. Delivery was when expected. Product worked PERFECTLY; no issues.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Summary: Having read this review, and my grandson having fitted this same card in his PC I can say that it works perfectly on full strength, one floor up & 2 rooms over, from the TP Link 300 MBps router in an old, solid brick house. Maybe your router is not up to the task, Anon?
Summary: It may have a high connection speed of 300Mb/s but that's useless when its signal strength is terrible. On my Gaming PC (which this card was installed in) i could get a max signal strength of 30% (1-2 bars or no connection at all), my older laptop which is in the same room gets a signal strength of 80-100% (full bars). I even placed the laptop on top of my Gaming PC and it still got full bars.
Summary: I have been using this wireless card for 3 weeks. I am very happy with it. Have not had any signal drops or stability issues. I liked the fact that I could put a directional antenna on it to max the signal strength. Great bang for the buck.
Summary: Excellent strength and range signal, capable of high speed internet. Good quality instructions on how to install into your PC too for those who are computer-illiterate. One of the highest quality dual-band PCI-wifi cards I've ever had. Had it installed for a month now and it hasn't cut out once.
