Do not be disheartened if your computer has a White List, it will work!.

Summary: I have a HP G62-225nr. When I first installed is, the computer would not boot to windows. I received an error message saying "Error 104 and network device is installed that is not supported. remove device and reboot." The reality is that HP has a "white list", a list of devices that they will allow their computer to use. To remedy the issue, I had to download a Modified bios from a third party, that gets rid of the "White list" and allows all devices to be used.
Major problems with this adapter still unresolved after 9 months

Summary: There is an ongoing problem with dropouts with this adapter - check the support forums on the intel website. If you have one, make sure you turn off power saving mode. Because it is dual band (2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz) and offers both "G" and "N" modes, it is difficult to tell from the submissions what the problem really is (as everyone is, unknowingly, using the card in a different configuration) and whether it is only a driver problem, or actually a hardware problem.
Excerpt: The 2.4 GHz band refused to work with the NUC, even though it was supposed to. 5 GHz did work. Put the card into an older model NUC and both bands worked fine. Intel WiFi support was useless. Since the card works fine in the older NUC, it may be a BIOS issue with the BOXD34010WYKH, even though Intel lists the units as compatible. Put the Intel WiFi card (Centrino Wireless-N 2200) from the old NUC into the new NUC, and that worked properly.
Excerpt: We needed more speed on our wireless network. The N-1030 in my Asus N55s, and adapters in other laptops too, were on the same frequency as the phones in the house. The dual band N-6235 on the 5 GHz band usually connects at 300 Mb/s for uninterrupted connections and benefit from an extended wifi range.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Summary: I have a HP DV7 computer and it had a single band N-2230 network card installed which was failing on me. So I did the research through the Intel website and rather that replace my single band card I opted for this one. First I downloaded the drivers and software from the Intel site. I then uninstalled the drivers and software from my old card. Removed the card replaced with this one, installed the drivers and software and I am now at twice the mps than before.

Summary: I have two PH Envy DV laptops (one DV6 and the other a DV7) that I purchased from Costco and as such, you could not order a dual band radio for either. Still, the price was good and I thought I could live with it. Well, I started to find that I really wanted the second band and so tried to buy it from HP. Needless to say, that was a wasted effort!!! I was told everything from the radios are part of the motherboard and cannot be changed to no one makes a dual band radio.
Excerpt: used Centrino Advanced-N 6235 WiFi card in building Intel NUC D54250WYKH. small with tiny internal antennae but picks up signals in rooms 50 ft. away from router with less than 1mb loss in download speed.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
If you don't have a Bluetooth switch on your laptop..

Summary: you're not going to have access to the Bluetooth function. This card is certified by Intel to be compatible with Windows 8 and 8.1 (Purchase point decision) My device manager is constantly finding and failing to enumerate a USB device since this card was installed. Always has been installed, the latest of and managing/Bluetooth software for the Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6230. This card increased my boot past bios by 15 seconds.. In other words.
