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: I received the Lenovo 6235AN.HMW wifi card today. I tried to install the drivers from intel, Asus, Lenovo and Microsoft to my ASUS S500CA laptop. However, none of the drivers worked. I always got the "Operation cannot open code 10" error. If anyone knows the working driver, please let me know where to download it. I would appreciate it.
Summary: I liked the idea of having the WiFi card with Bluetooth capabilities for my NUC. However, after about 2 months (the length of the warranty period) it started disabling itself and required restarting the computer. Yesterday, the Bluetooth part of the adapter stopped working and actually fails to even show up in the control panel. The other reviews mentioned a problem with the drivers. This is a hardware failure.
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...
I bought this for dell n5110. constant, signal dropout signal.

Intel has not fixed a driver issue. Useless. Do not buy.

Summary: This card worked reasonably well for about a year- though I had some sporadic dropped connections, it was not enough for me to bother to even figure out what was going on. However, in the last few weeks (probably after a driver update dated 8/22/13 + Windows 8.1?), this has made my machine practically unusable. I am writing this using a USB dongle to get network access, and on Amazon buying a replacement card. Intel is not helping. Not cool.
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.
Summary: I had done my research and everywhere I looked pointed toward this wireless card as a replacement for the one which came stock on my Zotac Mini ITX board. Unfortunately after receiving the product and installing it, it was nothing but issues with the device. This thing could not maintain a single speed. My wireless speeds ranged from 3mbp/s all the way up to 114mbp/s but would randomly fluctuate and eventually settle down at 52mbp/s.
Great upgrade WiFi Card-Network Connection Issues.

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.
