Summary: I'm not sure 'hate it' is right but after a lot of frustration attempting to make my Precision M6700 recognize the device (using Intel's drivers from their website) I was unsuccessful. I ended up returning to my older Wi-Fi adapter (another Intel adapter) which worked without incident. Bummer for me as I was looking forward to better stability and speeds.
Summary: OK, ordered this card after hearing reports of it being able to work in my laptop (HP Pavilion HDX 9494nr). After getting the card I immediately installed it. But Windows wouldn't recognize it and after trying to manually install drivers for it, I received a blue screen and then my laptop kept restarting over and over again until I removed the card and re-installed the old card (Intel WiFi 5300).
Summary: Got this card today in the mail, plugged it into a dell xps m1330 (which I've read should work.) Unfortunately, the card does not get detected and I can't install the drivers for them. The card was from supersavers (fulfilled by Amazon) and the sticker does not look like the 'authentic' one without the whitelist.
Constant BSOD's after about 2GB's of data received
30 December 2012
Summary: These caused my 2 Dell M90's (running Win 7 32-bit with 2GB and 3GB of RAM) to BSOD after about 2 GB's of Data has been received by the adapter. I installed the latest drivers for the device from Intel on multiple occasions before I gave up. I believe these are OEM Wireless cards from a HP laptop and think that the OEM drivers may be specialized for this pariticular device. Not sure which OEM they came from so I didn't install those drivers.
Summary: Don't buy it from "Globalrecomp". Yes, from "Globalrecomp" it's cheapest and useless. They sent to me not only wrong model but they sent tom BROKEN card. May be OTHER and USED and BROKEN it's ALL SAME for them... Or they are very clever - S/H more expensive then item...
Summary: I have purchased, or attempted to purchase one of these from several places, and not a one has been genuine. There is a cheap lenovo version floating around that is likely what you will get. My advice would be to look for a different product.
WARNING!!! Not capable of being an access point (AP) on linux
17 April 2014
Summary: I bought this to use in a linux based wifi router as it was half-size and supported 3 aerials - Great!. After wasting days trying to get it working I found that the Intel firmware does not (and has no plans to) support this as an access point. Completely useless to me and a total waste of money!
