Summary: DOA... device is clearly getting power, was seeing networks just fine but couldn't complete connection. So wound up grabbing the driver installation from TPLINK's site. No dice. Uninstalled device+drivers and manually installed drivers based on OS through Device Manager. Threw error at that point stating Code 10, Device can't start. Contacted tech support.....
Summary: I have a desktop computer upstairs in my house that is older and did not have wifi capability. I switched internet providers and moved my modem and router to the main floor level in the house. I thought that I would not be able to connect to the internet any more with my desktop. I ordered the TP-LINK N600 and installed it in the back of my computer, took about 5 minutes. I then popped the disc in my computer and downloaded the software.

Summary: Returned this adapter because I could not achieve the full speed of my Time Warner Service of 50 Mbps. I have windows 7 on a AMD 8 core system. I was able to get better connection that would not disconnect and better speed with this Adapter: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 plus Bluetooth Adapter (7260HMWDTX1). I tried several adapters, and this is the best performing adapter I could find. Make sure you get that is AC type as this is the latest technology.
Very high speeds for downloading, but unstable for gaming.

Summary: I recently purchased a TP-LINK TL-WDN3800 Dual Band Wireless N600 PCI-Express Wifi adapter to replace my previous USB wifi adapter, which had died after a few weeks. I purchased the dual-band card in case I got a dual-band router down the road. I bought the PCI-e card for my desktop, since my building's ethernet is limited to 10 Mbps, whereas the wifi can go up to 100 Mbps (download speed).

Summary: The software that came with the hardware is pretty basic and not really a benefit add. It helps to show the band frequency. Unfortunately, my laptop, which is lesser in specs in all regards, "shares this tab" on chromecast better than the connection from my desktop. There are in the same room, however the laptop has a much cleaner throughput to the chromecast, so that may be the reason. Still, after a year of ownership, no problems at all!

Summary: the wireless adapter was nicely made, i had no thought that it was even close to fragile. the wireless speeds are faste enough, but that may just be my wi-fi, and probably not the adapter. it comes with 2 ends, one big and one small( i don't know what to call them, tht frame that holds it to the case i guess.
Summary: I've had this card (TL-WDN3800) for a little over a year now, connecting to an Asus RT-N56U. It used to work flawlessly but suddenly has begun dropping the connection - a lot. Sometimes several times within an hour, and for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. To test whether the card was at fault, or my router, I disabled the card on my PC and used a different card, connected to the same network, and at the same place the TP-link was.
Summary: I installed this on an Ubuntu 14.04 system. Shut down, plug it in, boot up, and everything works automatically. Auto detected, no installation process needed. It works on both 5 and 2.4 GHz and is fast and reliable. Been up for a couple of weeks straight now, no signal drops or other problems. It works on Windows 7 too, after you go through a driver install process. Works well enough, I bought another for a second computer.
