3 out of 5 eggsIt works with Windows 8.1 x64

Pros: I was able to make it work properly with Windows 8.1. See Other thoughts.

Cons: The bulky antenna gets less range than my USB stick sized adapters. So much for "RangeMax NEXT"... Netgear does not support it, even if you just bought it new.

Other Thoughts: When you install this, Windows 8.1 will automatically find and install a driver for it. Don't use that one, it made be get downloads speeds for 1.5mbps on a 15mbps internet line...
If on windows 8.1 do the following:
1. Right-Click Windows logo on the bottom right.
2. Click Device Manager.
3. When the new windows pops up, double-click on "Network Adapter" to reveal all the adapters you have connected.
4. Right-click on "Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter" and click on "Update Driver Software..."
5. Click "Browse my computer for driver software"
6. Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
7. Uncheck "Show compatible hardware"
8. Click "Broadcom" in the left list of Manufacturers
9. In the right list find "Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter Version: 6.30.223.102 [5/31/2013]"
10. Click "Next"
11 Click "Yes" to the prompt that pops up.

You're done!

5 out of 5 eggsDeserves 5 stars!

Pros: Plug and play with Windows 8.1 64 bit, no drivers needed. For slightly faster speeds, broadcom driver will help. Great price to performance ratio.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: The portable antenna works great. I get mid 200's for my transmission rate on the other side of my house. Granted I have a really nice router to go along with this. I've had none of the issues others were reporting. Read below for my install steps to avoid any issues.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: For starters I work for a networking company. For the install of this product do not install any drivers! I have this running on a Windows 7 machine. Let windows install the default drivers. These work perfect and will cause no issues. No need to update those drivers, use as is. If you do that this product will work and get you close to the advertised transmission rates.

1 out of 5 eggsTotal Junk

Pros: None

Cons: The device fails to detect signals even when moved and setting mere feet from the router. Netgear no longer supports this item so when you contact them they tell you "tough luck" Contact NewEgg.

Other Thoughts: Never will I buy netgear again, and also this has me leery of the deals newegg is offering. How many other items are old and out of warranty before they are even sold?

1 out of 5 eggsNetRear support not available since 2011

Pros: PCI adapter.?. that shows the age of the product.
Am able to use the antenna Dual Connector on my old Asus card that I was trying to improve! Believe it did improve as I always have 5 bars and the router is upstairs!

Cons: Does not work with 7 64bit.
Support not available since 2011 manufacturing halting (I guess I can understand why netRear discontinued manufacture).
Consistently Dropped connection. When win7 sleeps, time consuming to make the adapter connect again! (My Asus 15 does not have that problem. EVER.

1 out of 5 eggsvery disappointed

Pros: none

Cons: number 1 issue is not reliable.
number 2 issue is that with bulky antenna it still can not connect to Netgear router just 2 feet away. I was too busy to fix this, so after one month or so I bought Asus n56u, still no luck with this card, though all the other wifi cards in various pads or laptops are working fine. Finally with FC20 and installed kmod_wl, it connects but the speed is unbelievably slow.
now tried to use its antenna with another card, it does not show any improvement of signal strength.

Other Thoughts: total waste of material.
probably will never buy netgear anymore.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat buy on sale

Pros: Nice antenna, good range and speed **with the right driver, download went from 7mbps to about 11 upstairs here, almost as good as the repeater I have set up **see Other thoughts

Cons: PCI, most motherboards these days will require a PCIx 1x slot so I had to use it in one of my older machines.

Other Thoughts: I love how these other reviews says to find the right driver and don't tell you where so here: Broadcom_wifi_5.100.196.18-win.zip 03/19/2012 can be found on the site driver-wireless dot com where I downloaded and it scanned clean with Avast and Hitman Pro, though I'm sure other sites will host it. BTW using the Update Drivers in Device Manager in Win 7 does NOT work, I just uninstalled it and ran setup.exe.

4 out of 5 eggsWas what I was looking for sort of

Pros: Great connection, solid transmission, low ping, fast, and adaptable to new placements.

Cons: I usually like using the standard device software rather than windows but it seems kind of clunky compared to newer software designed for windows vista or 7. Seems like it was made for XP or below.

Other Thoughts: Was actually looking for a PCIE x1 card but my fault for not paying enough attention to the specifications of the device but still no less usable than any other. Lesson learned moving on.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a good gamble

Pros: Looks interesting.

Cons: Difficult set up. Design didn't provide any improved performance to justify the added installation of the external antenna.
