3 out of 5 eggsyou get what you pay for. . .

Pros: Corded antenna allows you to position it in better range of your router, which is good because. . .

Cons: . . . the reception is not very good. I originally attached a non-corded antenna to it from another card and I could not get above 1 bar of signal. after adding on the original antenna again and placing it around the corner from my desk I was able to get up to 3 bars. If there is any extra interference this card will still drop down to 2 bars.

Other Thoughts: Not a very good card, but dirt cheap. If you are just browsing the web and aren't too far from your router, go for it. If you plan on gaming or trying to stretch the range of your router, spend a little more on another product.

2 out of 5 eggsThis thing is terrible

Pros: It looks like it would be worthy of being a network card that requires external objects to be awesome... keyword: LOOKS

Cons: This thing is an absolute waste of time. It hardly keeps full bars when it is literally 5 feet from a router (nothing between). It drops connection if the antenna is moved/gains connection when you move the antenna. All around waste of money, space, and time. Pick something else. A dung-worthy "chain store with welcome to ____ being quoted by a senior citizen" is more likely to suit your needs than this piece of garbage. Not reliable, and the one I have is NOT broken.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works from across the house
easy to install

Cons: Nothing I can think of

Other Thoughts: Using this on a desktop that's in our bedroom across the house from the wireless router. I put the antenna on top of the pc case and it has no trouble picking up a full signal.

4 out of 5 eggsLinux loves it

Pros: Works right out of the box with Linux Mint 16 and Fedora 20. I imagine most other distros work seamlessly as well. I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews that complained of difficult setup processes in Linux, but I'm happy to report that everything worked right out of the box.

Cons: Reception is not good. While my laptop has no trouble establishing a full-strength full-speed connection to the AP, this struggles to connect at 6 megabits. This happens even when I place the laptop in the same place as the antenna. The AP is about 50 feet away indoors with no walls in between. My laptop picks up about two dozen other APs, while this only picks up two.

The card has no problem staying connected. It just gets a weak signal.

Other Thoughts: Could I have a dud antenna? Possibly. However, this is one of (if not the) cheapest PCI WiFi cards on Newegg, and I wasn't expecting top-shelf performance. And because this is connecting an old office PC that sees minimal usage, and because it does stay connected, I'm only docking one egg.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It worked great at first, had no problems with it when I had Windows 7.

Cons: Once I upgraded to windows 8, it stopped working. Even though it says it has Windows 8 support, it doesn't work on it at all. I look at the official drivers, and they don't have any for windows 8. It's very obnoxious, but other than that, it's a good product. Anyone know a fix?

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works well with my wi-fi service. It recieves and send at thier maximum speeds.
Still sends and recieves at about 60% without the antenae attached.

Cons: None exept maybe in "Other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: This is the 4th gen. of this Rosewill adapter that I have bought. They have all worked.
All of them DO have a problem with seating into the MB slot first try.
When screwing in the hold down screw they tend to pop out of the slot,a little, in the back. But pushing it back in usually does the trick.
Win7 had problem seeing this card on two OS installs.
But uninstalling the software and reinstalling it did the trick at both times. Don't know why. It just did. The system (Win7) sees and uses this card well,now.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after a few hours

Pros: none

Cons: This had very poor RF sensitivity out of the box. After a few hours it would only work if the antenna was within 3 feet of the router.

Other Thoughts: I replaced it with an EDIMAX EW-7128Gn Wireless Adapter (N82E16833315096) that worked great

2 out of 5 eggsGreat!... For a Minute

Pros: Worked great for 3 weeks

Cons: Died after 3 weeks and it's not worth the shipping to get replaced.

Other Thoughts: I suggest spending your money on a card with a better track record
