Don't get the hype!

Snowman "snowman18960", Amazon

  • Summary: It is just a mediocre hardware, IMO. Mostly, the weaknesses are caused by Intel's driver set. I have 300Mbps N router and I've been running the card in mixed mode for almost 2 weeks now. Here are the issues/annoyances I've observed... 1. Card doesn't connect to preferred network itself after waking up from sleep. I need to pick up correct network and select "connect" then it connects but also takes long time. This was not an issue with my old N Realtek hardware.

Not a fan

  • Summary: ...of the Intel Centrino line, and this particular unit reinforces my disappointment. It was placed in an Intel NUC which has a limited choice in capable WLAN NICs. Couple that with Win8 wifi manager woes and this has not been a smooth ride.

Return policy not what Amazon has me accustomed to.

MIGUEL, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted to return the item - it was not what I needed. As it turned out the return policies are a bit peculiar: "only accept returns provided the item is returned in its original brand new condition, and manufacturer sealed in its shrink wrap and packaging...Once it has been received and if it is in its original brand new condition we will issue you a refund for the order less the shipping fee and a 20% restocking fee".

Major problems with this adapter still unresolved after 9 months

Mike L, Amazon
10 April 2013
  • 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 differently) and whether it is only a driver problem, or actually a hardware problem.
