Not For Windows 10

CHRIS R., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: If you have an older system that needs a wireless card, this will be fine, but I can't recommend it anymore, since it seems to be completely unsupported going forward.
  • Pros: Worked great with Windows 7.
  • Cons: Intermittently causes complete computer lockups in Windows 10 (and from some searching, Windows 8 as well). The only hint is a "PCI Express Root Port" warning in the Windows Event Log after you reboot. Very frustrating trying to figure that one out.

Better than expected for the price

  • Excerpt: I wanted to give my recent PC build wireless network capability. I didn't expected nothing too fancy for the price, but this card exceeded my expectations. Pretty quick and it actually works pretty well with Windows 10. Didn't even need to use the driver's disc it came with.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection

Quality product for affordable price.

  • Excerpt: Product comes with everything you need to install on a new machine but may give you issues in Windows 10 as the installatuon software is for older versions of Windows. Just let windows 10 install a driver automatically and it works great.

Caused two new computers to lock up intermittently. (I bought two of them).

  • Summary: I bought two of these network adapters for two identical new computers. The cards caused both systems to intermittently freeze (lock up). This usually happened during windows restart. I did several tests to confirm that it was these cards, and only these cards, that were causing the lock ups.

Nice card for the price.

  • Summary: Used this wireless adapter to get internet access for an old computer I moved in to the kitchen. It's probably not the fastest wireless card out there, but it's also not that expensive (relatively). It's exactly what it's described to be... an N300 network adapter.

  • Summary: Personally, I prefer to use ethernet cables for desktop computers, but if you don't want to go through the hassle of running a cable, or you computer is in a location where it is not practical to run a cable, then this card is for you!
