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: I got this card to replace an Intel 2230 blue tooth and wireless card. The laptop I fitted it to is a Dell 17R SE 7720. The good news is that despite Dell saying they can’t guarantee that it’ll work in the 17R, it does work fine. I had to down load the Intel driver pack for it to get the full functionality. It works fine though with no dropouts or other problems.
Summary: I got this to upgrade a Samsung NC10 and with an adaptor it slotted straight in . Firing up the netbook into arch linux the adaptor was corrctly configured and and the networkmanager logged straight into my network. The only issue seems to be the variability of throughput but this seems to be a driver issue rather than hardware related so hopefully intel will improve the driver soon (if the driver was better it would be 5 stars).
