2 out of 5 eggsNot Impressed

Pros: Decent cost.
Less memory usage than my previous card.

Cons: Noticeably higher latency than my killer2100 in essentially all games.
Very poor support for win8.1, took several hours of working with drivers to get it functioning so that it could use over 45Mbps of my synchronous 1Gbps fiber connection. Microsoft default driver makes it work worse than the terrible onboard realtek adapter.
Overall very disappointed with the move to this intel solution.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this to replace my Killer 2100 card which had run strong for many years. Lower performance but less than half the cost.

I feel ripped off after all the research I did looking for what would be the upgrade for a K2100 and so many said intel...

1 out of 5 eggsI couldn't get it to work

Pros: Brand Name

Cons: No driver's disc included, no support for Win 8.1 ?

Other Thoughts: I wanted to upgrade my HP HPE-500y Desktop from 10/100 to gigabit for faster wired network performance.
Windows 8.1 detected and installed drivers after 2 reboots. I then connected the Ethernet cable and it pulses on/off trying to connect but never does. I tried newer drivers from Intel's site but couldn't get them to install. Error message said I didn't have the card. I run a computer service business but don't have the patience to battle with this. I shipped it back to Newegg. (Thanks for the pre-paid label NE)

5 out of 5 eggsWorks When My Onboard Didn't

Pros: My onboard -- whether due to hardware or software -- was throttling my speed. I was set up for 330mbps. I was getting less than 100mbps. Now I get 330-340+!

Cons: None so far!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I just got one of these just to try it compared to the on board LAN of my motherboard. I was blown away when my download speed went from a 50-60 megabits pet second to 120-125 per second, I noticed a small jump in the upload speed, nothing huge though. tried a few downloads and updated a few games and it cooked through them like they were nothing.

Cons: none yet!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Addition

Pros: Opened box, installed card, updated drivers, plugged in Ethernet, all is working well. I was using the on-board NIC card which was capped at 100mbps and since i was using an RT-N66 gigabit router i wanted to maximize my throughput. Works like a charm and speeds are nice and high.

Cons: None so far

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great in Windows 7/8 but not in 8.1 (no support)

Pros: (When it worked) great improvement over my onboard solution, small profile, games no longer lagged severely, reduced CPU usage so I could do other things whilst having network intensive tasks running. pretty much did what a NIC is supposed to do.

Cons: After the Windows 8.1 update was applied the latest drivers for this card were removed and replace with Windows 8.1 default drivers that are over a year old and which I can only assume were made to "just about to get to work". There are no drivers for 8.1 on the Intel website so I was forced to use the Windows drivers, problems include:


stuttering music when internet browsing

system hangs when downloading

high CPU usage when downing or using download clients such as Steam.

capping my download speeds (I'm on 30Mb but only getting the equivalent of 10Mb)

download corruptions and lost connections to servers



I'm not sure who wrote the drivers for this card whether it was Microsoft or Intel but they did a terrible job, it's as if all the workload is being off loaded to the CPU and the NPU is just directing the traffic to the CPU rather than doing the work itself which is not what I paid for a NIC to do.

Other Thoughts: For some reason Intel have decided to continue support for Windows 8 (which is currently diminishing with the adoption of Windows 8.1) and don't even acknowledge driver support for 8.1. I don't understand the logic behind this choice and it's probably going to get to a point when Windows 8 market share is below 1% and Intel are still supporting it whilst 8.1 remains ignored.

when I asked Intel about the lack of support they directed me to Microsoft for help who in turn wanted me to sign up to a premium service for $100 with no guarantee that the driver problem would be solved, typical, capitalist M$ trying to turn me upside down and shake the money out of my pockets. If I had $100 on top of the money spent on the Intel NIC to waste on networking then I would've put the money towards a mobo that had an embedded Killer chip rather than screw around with Intel solutions that take up a PCIe slot and expansion slot, at least Atheros/Qualcomm support Windows 8.1.

Protip Intel; ditch 8, support 8.1
