Summary: worked great right away then stopped working after a week. I uninstalled then reinstalled with no luck. The connection is there but no internet. I plugged in my belkin USB and the internet was fine.
Summary: First off, I have been trying to find a wifi card that can maintain my wifi connection without dropping out for about the past 6 months, as my pc is the other side of the house this proved difficult. However, with this being the third and most expensive card i had purchased, i was pinning my hopes on it. And it sure did deliver.
Summary: Works like a charm, had it installed on a win 7 machine and had to download the drivers before I could use it (I don't have a disk drive otherwise I would have used the disk provided). I then installed it into a win 8.1 and it worked perfectly with default drivers. Comes with a normal and low profile PCI plate. Can't fault this product at all.
This is a great device - suited to both Linux and Windows 7

Summary: I required a slim and fast PCI adapter to fit my custom built computer. I was easy to fit into the PCI slot and was identified by both of my duel boot operating systems (Windows 7 & Linux Mint) without requiring any installation. An installation disk was provided just in case. In term of speed - my household router offers 2 channels - 2G and 5G.
Summary: I get 350-450Mbit throughput on 5GHz from my PC through a wooden floor to my Apple Airport Extreme. The three, moveable aerials allow for some "tuning in" to improve traffic rate. Driver support is okay and it worked well with Windows 7, 8.0 and 8.1. The software from TP link allowed me to see the actual traffic connection speeds (rather than the connected at 450Mbit that Windows serves up); this enabled me to tune the channel and aerials to improve the throughput.

Summary: Due to being connected to an antique clockwork telephone exchange, I remained "cabled" for everything for years in order to maximise my speed as far as possible. As more and more gadgets relying on wi-fi have crept into my household, I thought it would be sensible to "bite the bullet" so I revisited my network.
Summary: I bought this card for my new custom built PC and it works like a charm. I'm currently using the 5Ghz wifi channel on my BT Home Hub 4 and getting real time download speeds of 8 MB/s (or 80 Mb/s), just as advertised. So far (about a month in), I've had no wifi drop issues or any other complaints.
