Works great

Scott W., Newegg
14 May 2015
  • Pros: Was a snap to install the card, plenty of room in my case. Installed the software/driver and worked as advertised. After install was done, I went on-line and did a speed test. This card is installed in a computer about 40 feet away from router and has to go through 1 wall. Note: I made sure not t...

Worst buy

Cameron C., Newegg
13 May 2015
  • Pros: It connects sometimes
  • Cons: It disconnects from my router all the time. Has trouble keeping good connection. Drops many packets. Slow. Compared to a USB adapter the USB adapter for half the price blows it out of the water. I've updated drivers, took any interference into account and yet nothing helps this card. I'm really u...

Not a very good card, pretty slow.

Krista W., Newegg
4 May 2015
  • Pros: Fit nicely in my case, was easy to install
  • Cons: Do not get this card if you play a lot of online games. The connection is usually pretty terrible, and you do nothing but lag in game. I am surprised by all of the high reviews on this product, because I feel that it really doesn't deserve it. My computer is in the room next to my modem and I sti...

Great.... while it worked.

Joseph H., Newegg
1 May 2015
  • Summary: This was great while it lasted and worked well in a house that has a horrible dead spot. Unfortunately I used external antenna that really help with speed and signal, but also collect all other signals and may have just burned it out. Coincidentally, my Linksys router died at the same time.
  • Pros: Default antenna are decent Small card form-factor and came with half size backplane adapter.
  • Cons: After 12 days, this adapter started getting slower. Put external, larger antenna on it and solved the problem. After 38 days, the adapter will connect to the network, but wont do anything. Shows perfect strength, but a packet grabber shows its spewing just garbage packets. Tried different encrypt...

Great Product

SOREN S., Newegg
24 April 2015
  • Summary: I have installed over 100 of these in client computers running Windows 7 and never had a problem with any of them. They are a great wireless adapter. I use them exclusively in my IT consulting business.
  • Pros: The current version comes with a low profile bracket. This is based on an Atheros chipset, which is my favorite for wireless purposes. It runs 3x3 in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
  • Cons: None that I have found.

17 April 2015
  • Pros: easy install. windows 8.1 didn't recognize the card right away but I used the install cd and it was working in minutes. it found and connected to my 5G network quickly. I got this to replace another TP-Link USB wifi adapter that was a few years old and did not work very well.
  • Cons: none so far, but I'll update this post if I find any.
