Summary: Ok...I was able to have a connection..so that a start...but who want a link unstable was going to 50 kb/s to 500 kb/s...even if it's was stable at 500 that way not enough. Test speed show 2 mb/s. On my Imac and macbook air and macbook pro(2006) i was getting 26 mb/s. After raging at it..i decide to turn it off and use the on board Wifi of my MOBO P8z77-Pro. AHHHHHHH! Back to my 26 mb/s. Dont buy that...I just dont know how check for my money back..
Summary: Easy install. The speed seems to fluctuate a lot! All the way from 1 Mbps to 144 Mbps. I scraped one of the antennaes against the wall and it came off, so I can't tell if the fluctuation is because of the (maybe) damaged antenna or just the product. Also the range isn't too good, moving my desktop from 20 ft to 15 ft away from my router significantly improved the performance.
Pros: Fast at times
Cons: Not the best range, Antennaes need to be adjusted a lot
Summary: I purchased the PCE-n53 to replace a Cisco/Linksys AE2500 USB adapter. My experience has always been that internal cards provide much better performance and range due to the external antenna and fast PCI (or in this case PCI-E) bus. This is the first card I've seen where it's worse. This card gets a 2mbps connection to my Linksys E2500 router. The USB card it replaced was able to max out the 30mbps internet connection.
Summary: Good Card Good software was a bit pessimistic about going wireless from wired as a past experience was unstable but this has proved to be quite stable and very fast. Chose 4 star because I have the router right underneath my pc on the ground floor and even though the 2.5ghz connection is full the 5ghz connection is not and there is less than 3 meters between the two and its not a concrete floor or anything
Summary: This product is awesome! Works super fast exactly what I needed, however it is more difficult to install with linux. However worked perfectly out the box with Windows 7 after installing the drivers via DVD.
Summary: I recently bought this card on the basis of the other highly positive reviews, as I am looking for a wireless card that will let me utilise the 300MB 2.4GHz capability of my TP-Link TL-WA901ND V2 access point. The existing wireless card in my desktop was an ancient BT Voyager 1040 54MB b/g PCI card, and according to Windows 7's connection details has the full 5 bars of signal and speed of 54MB.
Summary: This card has excellent range and rarely drops out. I'm a considerable distance from the wireless point in my abode which I'm unable to move. Between the card and the wireless point is also a thick wall with many many pipes running through it. This caused tremendous issues with my previous card and range. Very happy to have found a high quality affordable card.
Summary: Again, bought for son as fed up with constant whinging about his games lagging on our internet. After much head-scratching/banging and healthy debate we came to the conclusion his Linksy's wireless card and drivers were the cause. By then our relationship had deteriorated to the extent it was either buy the Asus or stick his head in the oven. Having been overruled by the missus, I bought the Asus. Peace has returned to the household, at least temporarily.
Summary: Windows 7 Installation 32 bit. BT Home Hub Maybe I had a Friday afternoon card but it failed to work at all. I tried several times to get the card to work but with no Success. The Driver / Utility installed but Asus software would not initiate, I got the latest software from Asus on a wired link and still nothing. When I eventually got the Software to open it would not talk to the card. I tried many times with different configurations but still no success.
