Summary: Ordered the DWA-552 PCI WiFi card from NCIX and it arrived within 48 hours. Unboxed and installed within 2 minutes and on the air with 3 minutes on the Windows side. On the Ubuntu side of the house it ran right away - no drivers to install or anything.
Pros: Works almost out of the box, instant results with Ubuntu linux
Summary: CRAZY LOOKING! using it on my 4 year pc which doesnt have wifi but only ethernet and needed it in the living where no ethernet cable is present. easily driver installation, doesnt like to drop wifi signal, this is very good overall
Summary: Got this for a budget build that had to use wireless, gets signal from other side/floor of house. Card's easy enough to use and had 0 zero issues so far, price of $40 doesn't break the bank either, would buy again if needed.
Summary: It works well for data transfer but i don't recommend it for competitive gaming because once in a while(pretty rarely) the adapter stops working and only a reboot will fix it. The other issue i have had with this card is that about 2% of the time it doesn't work when i start up my computer and that...
Summary: Works like it should. Have one dwa 552 and one dwad 556. Just ordered another. I've never had issues with either one. I have 4/5 bars on the main floor with my wirless router upstairs (dir 655).
Pros: - Works, - Fairly good reception, even with a radiator in the way
