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.

  • Summary: My manufacturer stated, clearly, that my laptop was compatible with this card.... Ummmmmmmm NO! It is cheap, and if it works on your laptop, I am positive you will have the best bang for the buck with this card...

  • Summary: UL30VT laptop with Intel GM45 chipset, should work. Windows recognizes it once latest drivers installed, but it was far from stable. Replacement didn't work, either.
  • Pros: Seems like a great upgrade for $30, but it didn't work for me.
  • Cons: Latest Feb 2014 drivers are still unstable, once connected I am lucky to load half a webpage before it craps out. My replacement is the same.

Lots of problems. (Driver issues) Intel is not helpful. Widespread issue, hundreds of customer complaints.

  • Summary: I have been having so much trouble since right after the 30-day return was up. I've had blue screens from the drivers and constant dropped connections when it is working (which ends up being only for around 5-30 minutes and then I need to restart my laptop to get it to work again.) I've tried to disable and enable the device instead of restarting the entire computer but it will just freeze when trying to enable the device.

Great upgrade WiFi Card-Network Connection Issues.

Eric Sundquist, Amazon
24 July 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased a Dell 13z laptop. While I loved the size and performance, there was an issue with the installed WiFi card. I had dropped connections, no connections, etc. I read some reviews on the Dell web site. Most users had problems with the WiFi card. Instead of dealing with Dell support, I elected to upgrade. Installation was a breeze. I have had great success and no dropped network connections. The value was significant at $22.00 and I highly recommend it.

  • Summary: The one I got is flashing a use device on and off in the device manager and it will not take any drivers I assume that's the bluetooth part of the chip because I also have no bluetooth

  • Summary: Tried a few of the available drivers for this adapter, from 15.0.0.75 to 15.7.0.3 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!

  • Summary: I did all the research and this one was supposed to work for my machine. I paid the price and I wish I had just left well enough alone. Good news, I pulled it out and my laptop woke up like nothing ever happened.
