5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Adapter

Pros: Does what it was suppose to do.

Cons: Random ping spikes at

Other Thoughts: For people who are planning to buy this adapter or have this adapter DO NOT turn on beamforming, turboQAM, and interference mitigation on this adapter. I have a Asus AC68U placed 10 feet from me and had pings spikes to 50-1100ms with these features enabled, when you disable these features you will not see these spikes anymore.

*This is also with the latest firmware and drivers for both devices.

5 out of 5 eggsUp to Expectations (so far)

Pros: Install was easy and smooth; no issues at all, software worked fine right from the start on my Windows 7 machine.

Speed is terrific so far. I have a fairly busy home network (2 overlapping SSIDs in my house plus several from the neighbors, probably 10-15 wifi devices on my networks) and I get an excellent signal in the room adjacent to the one the router sits in. Got 1Gbps connection speed right away, and it seems to bounce between 1Gbps and 867Mbps.

I really like the magnetic triangle base for the antennas; I have it stuck to the side of my PC tower. I think it definitely helps to have the antennas away from the back of the PC in terms of reception.

Cons: None so far; obviously this card is a bit more expensive than other options out there, but it's also one of the fastest cards available right now.

Other Thoughts: I do a fair amount of streaming movies over my home network, and occasionally moving around big files. I've noticed that movie streaming is much improved and have no problem watching 1080p movies over the wifi. A while ago I upgraded my router and switch to 10/100/1000 speed, and I finally figured it was time to get the wifi up to the same speeds. (Side note, also had to buy an appropriate AC router to take full advantage of this card, obviously.)

1 out of 5 eggsDecent when it works

Pros: Fast.

Cons: Intermittent connection issues.

Other Thoughts: I am now on my second card after an RMA and can not do anything useful with this card. It constantly drops connection. WIndows still thinks that it is connected. Forces me to manually disconnect and reconnect in order to work again. This second card lasted less than a week.

ASUS support requires that you pay to ship the card to them, adding more cost to an already expensive card, and it still doesn't work.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work under Windows 8.1

Pros: Works under Linux with custom broadcom driver.

Cons: Doesn't work under Windows 8.1 - can't find any networks or create network but WORKS under Linux with broadcom driver. Support is terrible and very unexperienced, their solution is to "inststal different version of windows or update drivers on router". Submitted RMA few times - no response.

5 out of 5 eggsIs Fast and Sweet!!

Pros: Future proof with ac compatibility. This Wifi adapter is much better than the one that came with my motherboard which is an Z87 Mpower. The antenna's are more powerful and I always get 5 bars.

Cons: The cord to the antenna is a bit snug on my desk, but I think it's long enough for most people's needs.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None.

Cons: The worst wireless adapter I have ever dealt with. Was able to only get it to connect a couple times but wont hold a connection for more than a couple minutes, now will not connect at all. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers many times, including latest ones. Even cheap wireless adapters haven't given me as many problems as this.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Installation is very easy and when I paired this card with my Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 router it has been very stable with no lost connections even in an very old concrete and steel building where other routers have failed to go more than about 30 feet. I have been able to watch 1080HD movies without any buffering at about 100 feet.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

Pros: Works great, strong reception even through multiple walls. Easy install, external antenna array made a difference in performance over having the antennas out the back of the tower.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Paired with a DIR-880L and am quite satisfied. Excellent performance.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a true dual band adapter

Pros: Each band works. 300 - 450M

Cons: This does not allow you to get up to 1300Mbps. That is an outright lie. I just got off the phone with ASUS support. I called them because I could only get one band to connect at a time. They told me that this adapter does not allow for both bands simultaneously. When you connect one band, it disconnects the other. ASUS and Newegg are falsely advertising its capabilities.

Other Thoughts: I bought this and an ASUS RT-AC68U router to replace running cable. I needed to get close to the 1G speed and reading the specs on this, that's what I should get. This has been a complete waste of time and money and, while I've been a long-time customer of ASUS products and Newegg, I find myself questioning my continued patronage. I'm very annoyed and disappointed.
