3 out of 5 eggsGood Chipset Bad Manufacturer

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N150PCe, Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, (1T1R) Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates, PCIe 2.0 Interface, WPS supported

Pros: It works.

Cons: The drivers supplied by Rosewill on their site for this product are terribly outdated, so much so it's odd. At the time of writing this their site says the Win 7 drivers were updated in 2011, yet the chipset manufacturers own site has drivers for Win 7 that were updated in 2014! I could not for the life of me get this card to work with Rosewill's drivers. The drivers supplied are unsigned, buggy, and even the install is buggy saying the card is not present to install the drivers half the time. I recommend going to Atheros's site and downloading the drivers for chipset 'ar9285' (again, at the time of this writing, technically Rosewill can change the chipset). After getting the updated drivers (which are signed) everything worked perfectly. You'll have to manually install the drivers by going to the device manager and specifying the location.

Other Thoughts: I understand things between hardware manufacturers and chipset makers are fragmented... But if I was part of the process I'd try and partner with them to make something similar to an RSS feed to ping me as the hardware manufacturer about driver updates.

1 out of 5 eggslack of wifi signal, frequent dropouts

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N150PCe, Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, (1T1R) Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates, PCIe 2.0 Interface, WPS supported

Pros: cost.

Cons: low signal strength. varying speeds from slow to really slow.

Other Thoughts: put this in a new build and instantly regretted getting a sub $15 card. after a couple days of poor wi-fi performace (in a room where my laptop gets full signal strength), I bought a TP Link card that was like 3 times more money. way better performance that's actually usable. maybe this is ok if you're in the room with your router.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Choice

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N150PCe, Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, (1T1R) Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates, PCIe 2.0 Interface, WPS supported

Pros: Great price (if it had worked)

Cons: Did not work

Other Thoughts: Well add me to the list of upset customers. My PC detects the card, and then while installing the software it says that the device is not inserted. Maybe I'll find my own resolution like the others here after a couple of hours, but for now, I am not happy.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Product Awful Drivers

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N150PCe, Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, (1T1R) Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates, PCIe 2.0 Interface, WPS supported

Pros: Much faster than a cheap WiFi thingy for the same price.
Windows 8 recognized the device right away.

Cons: Windows 7 refuses to recognize the device without manufacturer drivers.
The drivers from Rosewell's website didn't work for me.

Other Thoughts: This device is internally identical to a device made by TP-Link, using the drivers from their website allowed me to use this device. For reasons... I will leave the address to TP-Links page: http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?categoryid=243&model=TL-WN781ND#down

Pros: well it works well on window 8.1 just plug it in then install the driver on rosewill website

Cons: It took me 2-3hrs to figure out which driver to install for windows 7 ultimate 64bit. DO NOT use rosewill drivers because it does not work! Use this:

1 out of 5 eggsDrivers Not Digitally Signed

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N150PCe, Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, (1T1R) Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates, PCIe 2.0 Interface, WPS supported

Pros: Works great if, every time you boot your computer, you hold down F8 and force Windows to "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement." Unacceptable.

Cons: "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device."
Windows 7 64-bit will not allow this adapter to run. I initially tried the drivers supplied with the adapter on the mini CD-ROM. I even went to the original manufacturer's website and tried the drivers there (Qualcomm Atheros 9485):
https://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-download.php?chipset=60&system=5
I do not recommend this adapter if you have Windows 7 64-bit. Other Windows versions may have the same problem.
I am very disappointed in this purchase. Shame on Rosewill & Qualcomm for not taking the additional step to validate/register their driver with Microsoft. I will be purchasing a new adapter - one not made by Qualcomm, and one not resold by Rosewill.
