I'd avoid this card if you run Windows 7 or later (64 bit, perhaps 32 bit as well)

Alkemyst, Amazon

  • Summary: I'd avoid this for any Windows 7/8/8.1 64-bit install. I loved this card when I got it. Totally reliable and speeds as good as my wired connection in practice. However; when I went from Windows 7 32-bit to 64-bit and later Windows 8/8.1 64 bit my speeds that I was getting even on low end laptops were surpassing it. I am a Cisco CCNP in Route and Switch and have a CCNA in Wireless, so I'd say I am on the highly proficient side of getting these things up and running well.

Not bad, but not great

  • Summary: I thought that this card would give a better range than my ASUS card that only had 1 receiver, but not so. This card didnt have good range. I was only getting about 2 bars at 30ft through 1 wall. The ASUS would get 4.
  • Pros: Decent speeds Plug and Play
  • Cons: Poor Range

Dissapointed again

Robert M., Newegg

  • Summary: I even moved the PC around and still didn't get a better signal. I even tried a few other antennas, like my chinese 15dbi, and that boosted it to about -48 RSI. I also tried a cheap chinese semi-directional, not much better. And i tried the Super Cantenna, and again not much improvement (though i must admit the Super Cantenna has always been a huge dissapointment).
  • Pros: It's dual-band. It's probably a great adapter to those who have tried very many. But this is roughly the 5-6 adapter i have owned.
  • Cons: It's weak. This is the third Linksys adapter i have tried out. I first tried the AE1000, very very weak. Then i tried the AE2500, it was slightly stronger but prone to overheating and dropping the connection. And now this one. All of which are still topped, in terms of signal strength, by my cheap generic chinese knockoff with RT2870 in generic chinese housing. Granted my cheap chinese adapter is only 150mbps and only 2.4Ghz. However i have yet to find a decent dual b...

Not worth the sweat

Alex B., Newegg
18 February 2012
  • Summary: I know a thing or two about networks. My father worked for 3Com for around 20 years and I grew up in the wireless networking pioneering age. I've used 802.11a, b, g, and n prior to purchasing this device. I've used all sorts of encryption methods, different routers, gateways, wired, wireless, and bluetooth networking.
  • Pros: Works(after awhile) Looks kinda cool Has an indicator light Dual band
  • Cons: Very difficult to get to connect. A slight bit of force was required to seat in the PCI slot on my motherboard, not a bad fit, just very good. Almost too good.

Lasted almost a year

Kyle H., Newegg
4 February 2012
  • Summary: Bought 2/28/2011, died 2/3/2011. Wondering how difficult it will be to cash in on the 1 year parts warranty. I do love that it goes on 2.4GHz and 5Ghz to go with a dual-band router... but... if it's dead, that doesn't help.
  • Pros: Has 2.4GHz and 5GHz Has WEP, WPA/WPA2 Personal, WPA/WPA2 Enterprise Has 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g
  • Cons: 9 months: Started acting flaky (dropping 5GHz signal) 11 months: Died
