Summary: The N6300 did not quite live up to the standards I was expecting. It was a huge improvement from the Centrino N 2230 that I already had installed on my laptop from the factory but not any better than any other duel-band Wi-Fi card on the market.
Summary: Card was recognized fine in linux, I got this to be the wireless access part of a homebuild linux router, no problem getting it supported, I really like the 3 antenna ports, however this card is unable to be used as an access point.
Summary: I purchased this for my HP dv7-2040us, replacing the original Intel 5100agn network card which was pretty good. Installing this was relatively easy, was just a simple switch over, the only problem was the lack of a third antenna which I ordered.
Summary: Even though I MESSED UP and thought I was buying a MORE EXPENSIVE one WITH BLUETOOTH, I'm quite happy with the speed of this little card until I find the one I wanted, and buy it (jeez!). Arrived incredibly quickly--in 3 days!!! Works perfectly!
Summary: The wireless card that came with my Dell M1330 laptop many years ago was OK when I was on 1.5 mbps DSL and lived in a smaller home where I was never more than 30 feet or so from my router, giving me a pretty strong 802.11g signal all the time. Things change.
Summary: I got this card to use with my PFsense router as an access point, replacing the so-so external AP that I had been using. Long story short, it doesn't work as an access point, so I don't get to replace the external AP.
