2 out of 5 eggsNot worth the effort

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Easy PCI-E, pop it in, screw in in the antennas, and done!

Cons: Windows 8.1, 64 Bit:
Tried four different drivers (Two TP-Link ones, Two Qualcomm Atheros ones) with two different routers both of which have multiple WiFi devices connected to them just fine.

No matter what combination, version, router, etc. I use, my connection is super flaky, can hardly stay connected for 5 minutes without 30 seconds+ of it trying to reconnect and work again.

I've actually switched back to my less-broken TP-Link USB WiFi dongle instead for now.

Other Thoughts: If anyone has any tips/recommendations on getting this working for windows 8.1 64 bit, I'm all ears, already tried many things with no luck.

3 out of 5 eggsTakes some working with.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Once you get it working its really good, the connection speed/range is very nice.

Cons: For windows 8 users the driver disk will not work first try, it will overheat and disconnect while watching videos and playing games.

Other Thoughts: To get mine working fine I tried a bunch of different drivers and in the end none of them worked without overheating... what ended up working was....

Enter "device manager" after installing the drivers from the disk, click network adapters, select the driver you just installed and click properties, enter the driver tab of the properties and roll back driver. So far its been working fine for me no overheating and no signs of slowing. ^^

2 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Connected to my phone's hotspot fine.

Cons: Could not connect to my router (NETGEAR WND3700).

Other Thoughts: Bought it seeing people gave this good reviews. However when I installed it onto my PC, it refused to connect to my router. Tried using my phone's hotspot for internet and it connected to it fine though. Another thing that irked me was how my TL-WN725N connected to my router just fine. Maybe the range is small? Looked up the problem on google but could not find a single solution, It may have been just me screwing something up but it shouldn't have been this hard.

Pros: Decent speed support, driver disk included, great signal strength/range.

Other Thoughts: I've had it for a day and I'm already not impressed... if you know a fix for it that would be nice.

Yes I have proper air flow and fans made for gaming.

3 out of 5 eggsGets the job done, sometimes.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: -easy installation and setup

-good for surfing the web

Cons: -Had a lot of connection issues while playing online games, specifically War Thunder.

-Signal strength was never that good, and I was only about 50ft from my router.

Other Thoughts: -Like the title applies sometimes it worked well, but for anyone who enjoys competitive online games I do not recommend.

1 out of 5 eggsContinuous disconnects

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Fast. Easy setup.

Cons: Unreliable.

Other Thoughts: Worked fine on the 5GHz band for about 10 days. Then the dreaded disconnects started. Every couple of minutes. Updated driver from website. Tried to use the 2.4 GHz band instead. Tried changing PCIe slots. Tried changing channels. It just keeps disconnecting and reconnecting. Tech support wasn't able to help. Suggested trying it in a different computer, which is not possible as I only have the one.

1 out of 5 eggsWent bad quickly

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Relatively fast connection
Easy install especially with Windows 8
Always nice to utilize a PCI-E slot

Cons: Constantly dropping connection (and I mean CONSTANTLY)
After a few months it is nothing more than sub par
Not nearly worth the cost

Other Thoughts: This card served me well for a few months. I was very pleased with it. Could have been a little faster, but I digress.
For the past few months however I've been dealing with it dropping the connection to my router at least every two minutes. I don't do many demanding things in regards to bandwidth. Let me tell you that this card has become the bane of my existence. It is seriously the most frustrating thing I've ever experienced to be in the middle of something and having to disconnect and reconnect because the wireless cuts out, or resetting the router because the connection becomes "Limited" and irreparable. I check for new drivers once a week, and nothing seems to fix this problem, and trust me i have tried endlessly.
DO NOT BUY THIS CARD. Get a cheaper one that will work better and faster, because this one will not last long. Save yourself the frustration. This is the last time I purchase a TP-Link product.
