Challenging install, but worth it!

JHB, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased to upgrade WiFi capability in my Dell Inspiron 14N laptop. This is not a task for the faint of heart - it requires disassembly of the laptop to gain access to the wireless card.

Industrial Strength WIFI Card

jeffrey b., Newegg
15 March 2015
  • Summary: I don't get some of the features of this card {like softap} because I'm using it on an AMD box. You can put this card into monitor mode running Linux if needed. I'm so happy I bought this card!
  • Pros: Gives a very solid connection, way better then a USB adapter. In 5 months not once a dropped connection. EZ install W7 64 bit Works with Linux 64 bit "out of the box" Cool looking antenna
  • Cons: none

Solid Antena

Thomas G., Newegg
22 December 2014
  • Pros: Great range. 5 bar signal from my router through 2 walls and a kitchen. easy wall mount with command strip like adhesive as well as pin. looks as ascetically pleasing as a antenna can look
  • Cons: not really a con since all I care about is performance but it is external and can be seen. but not really a con

Terrible Drivers

Crystal T., Newegg
6 December 2014
  • Summary: I can't recommend this product at all and frankly it soured me on buying another Intel product again. I thought I'd go with a well respected brand name but that was a mistake.
  • Pros: Small size, good range, works well when its drivers aren't crashing my PC.
  • Cons: Awful driver causes sometimes daily blue screen crashes, sometimes multiple times a day...you just never know. After researching the crashes online I found that Intel has apparently known of this issue for a long time but simply tells you to "reinstall the drivers or update the driver" . That was...

Great card

Francis M., Newegg
18 November 2014
  • Summary: Mixing up the "Ant1" and "Ant2" cables halves your connection speed, which is very easy to mix up if you have to screw them in at an awkward angle behind a desk. It would be nice if the cords were a bit different from each other (like making the end of one have a black stripe or something) My...
  • Pros: Because the antenna is on a cord you can have it in a position where your case doesn't block the signal. Supports 5Ghz . Comes with a low profile bracket if you want to install it into a slim machine.
  • Cons: You do need to manually install drivers for Win7. - Windows 10 Tech preview I didn't. The two cords for the antenna are quite easy to mix up. No Bluetooth.

WIFI Card + Desktop = Eh!

Michael, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: I'm never a fan of internal WIFI on desktops... I purchased this WIFI card while I was building my newest custom PC. My PC is located in my basement and any normal Laptop/Tablet/Smartphone will pick up 100% connection no issues. Well the same goes for this...
