Summary: Needed a replacement for the Broadcom wifi card in Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe. This one works fine, drop in replacement and downloaded latest drivers from Intel. No problems with Windows 8.1. Actually I think this is the same wifi card that's included with the WIDI version of this board. Should have gone with the Intel 7260 with AC support though but oh well, I don't have any AC devices anyways.
Summary: I flashed my Ideapad Y500 BIOS to enable non-whitelist hardware and bought this adapter from NCIX for around $30.00. I Installed it as soon as I got it home, and haven't had an issue since. My 5 Ghz N connections are at 300mbps and throughput is quite good depending on other 5Ghz traffic in the area I'm getting anywhere between 80 - 140 mbps speeds so I'm quite happy with it.
Pros: Fast, auto-recognized by latest Intel drivers, signal with laptop antennas seems quite good, Bluetooth seems fine too with my BT mice.
Cons: None yet. Intel has spotty support in general for their networking adapters (IMHO) and finding compatibility info is difficult
Summary: Tried a few of the available drivers for this adapter, from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 and cannot get a stable N connection with Win 7. Will work for a few minutes and then drop to 1-2 kB/s or just disconnect. Intel's forum is filled with people with the same problem for this adapter. The card is a little to long to fit a standard half pcie (The holes for the screws are not aligned properly). I would not recommend.
Pros: Easy drivers installation
Cons: Sporadic connection dropouts, Wireless adapter was a bit too long
Summary: If you read the Intel support forums, you will find that this board has lots of problems in OEM installations, and is not meant to be used in desktop systems!!! http://communities.intel.com/thread/31090?start=0&tstart=0 I bought it and installed in an Intel thin mini-itx DQ77KB motherboard, hoping to save a couple of USB ports. It did now work at all. In the same system, my Asus USB based WiFi adapter works flawlessly.
Pros: None. It does not work. Drivers install, and the system recognizes it, but it won't function as intended.
Cons: It does not work. It won't find any wireless networks and it won't find any bluetooth devices!
Conclusion: Funkar klockrent, bara och stoppa i nätverkskortet och starta datorn och börja surfa. Hur enkelt som helst. Netonnet har glömt att skriva här på hemsidan att det är en dualband, så nätverkskortet funkar även i 5 GHz Enda negativa är priset, men var i akut behov av ett nätverkskort.
Conclusion: Anbefaler på det varmeste å handle på NetonNet. Bra nettside, grei ekspedering og veldig rask levering. Kortet virker utmerket både på 2.4Ghz og 5 Ghz samt det har bluetooth 4.0 som er siste og raskeste bluettooth.
