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.

Cons: Disconnection while playing games and overheating.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

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: So I was pulling down a dreadful 28 mb/s on my 2.4 ghz PCI wifi adapter, but I noticed that my ipad air was blazing away at 116 mb/s with consistency. Could not figure out why until I discovered my ipad was connecting on the far clearer and faster 5 ghz band.

Immediately I upgraded. Instant results. I can now stream heavy duty HD content like never before. spectacular speed, embarrassingly easy installation.

**Please be aware it's a PCI Express card, not just basic PCI. The slot sizes are different! **

Cons: It wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: Ordered about 12 AM 6/30/14. Was waiting for me at home after work on 6/1/14

Newegg is the best.

4 out of 5 eggsGood adapter but you might get a dud.

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: Connection remains 60%+ which is is considered excellent. If you get a solid adapter it won't drop connection and runs online games as well as movie streaming just fine.

Cons: Had to RMA my first TP-Link because it would drop connection and would get a worse connection than my previous 2 antenna TP-Link adapter.

Other Thoughts: If you get one that drops connection I would suggest replacing it with another because these are great when they work. I am able to game and stream simultaneously which is something I could not do as well on my previous adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect on Linux

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: Needed wireless on my Linux pc. Plugged the card in, booted up, works perfectly!

Cons: None that I can find.

Other Thoughts: I tried it on an older motherboard with Windows 7 on a longer pci-express slot. System could find the card, but I never was able to install the drivers. Gave up and used a long network cable instead. Possibly because of motherboard, which is an ASUS P5E.

1 out of 5 eggsWeak sauce.

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: It was on sale.

Cons: Just about everything, but allow me to be more specific.

First, it's slower/weaker than the standard wireless adapter in my laptop. In the same room as my laptop I cannot get more than 3 bars, when my laptop gets a consistent 5 in this room. I have fiddled with the little antennas on the back and turned them every which way. It doesn't make a difference; they're useless. The wireless utility has not read better than a 'Good', 3-bar connection yet. 50% is the best I can get with this thing when, again, my laptop keeps an excellent 5-bar connection in this same room sitting no more than 3 feet from it.

So then, obviously, I went to their website to see if there was a newer driver than the one that came with the adapter. There were two newer drivers -- the earliest of which was 2013. So apparently this thing has been sitting on the shelf a few years as the driver disc they include in the box is around 2+ years old.

So I download the newest driver from TP Link's site to install. I extract the driver folder and realize, oh nice, they forgot to include the setup.exe within the driver package. This of course meant, oh nice, I couldn't install the newest driver since they forgot to include the setup file.

So then I go back to their website (this was TP Link's site and not some knock-off) to download the second newest driver from 2013. Oh nice, they did include the setup.exe in this driver package, so I'll actually be able to install it.

I get the driver installed and, oh nice, suddenly I have 5 bars showing for my connection in Windows. Then.. oh not so nice.. there it drops to 3 again in a matter of seconds.

So, basically, I confirmed its not the driver that needs updating. Nor is it the location since my laptop is less than 4 feet away and is pinned at 5 bars whenever it's on. The hardware is just weak sauce. I kid you not this thing is significantly slower than my laptop's built-in wireless adapter, and I cannot get over 3 bars on the connection no matter what I try -- while my laptop pins at 5 bars from the same room constantly. I may build a camera tripod from those 3 little antennas on the back of the card because they're not good for anything else.

If you want my advice.. do not buy. I wish I hadn't. Now I'm stuck with a server-grade machine (Ivy Bridge 3.2GHz, 16GB DDR3, and Corsair Neutron SSD) that loads pages slower than my laptop. Thanks, TP Link.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7, 3.2GHz Ivy Bridge Intel, Corsair Neutron SSD, 16GB RAM, GeForce GTX 670

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for your review.

We are sorry to see that this device hasn't worked out for you.

You may still be able to update the latest driver from our website without a setup.exe.

You can find your adapter in 'Device Manager' and right-click 'Update Driver Software..'

From here it will allow you to Browse to the Driver folder that was saved to your Computer.

It will then try to update your hardware.



Best Regards!
