3 out of 5 eggsRosewill Wireless N PCI Express x1 Adapter

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N250PCe, Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, Up to 300Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E interface

Pros: Great price at under $15
Small footprint
PCI Express x1 compatible
Covers a lot of wireless protocols (b/g/n)
64/128 - bit encryption
Does HD streaming ok without any stuttering

Cons: Single band, only supports 2.4Ghz channel

Not plug and play...needs Rosewill driver (CD included though)

Even with dual antennae, I'm only getting 3-4 bars and the HTPC is just literally 5 feet away from the Router and Modem. I have the LInksys EA6900 (which is a very high end router because I do a lot of HD streaming). I've beenplaying with the router settings but still only 4 bars at the MAX. I'm not sure what's going on here?

Other Thoughts: I want to like this wireless card...i really do. For the price, you really can't go wrong still...it's a single channel (2.4Ghz) with b/g/n support. Most these days, everyone's going with the fast connection meaning wireless-n support all the way!

My advice: if you have the dual channel router (2.4Ghz & 5 Ghz), go with the Rosewill RNX version that supports dual channels as well. This specific wireless cards range is too short.

3 out of 5 eggsSo So

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N250PCe, Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, Up to 300Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E interface

Pros: Installed fine, worked from the 2nd floor ok. So distance great speed good.

Cons: The item lasted for about 3 months then died. Long distance stoped, works ok next to the router.

Other Thoughts: I guess if you buy a dozen then you won't have to keep geting new ones...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Speeds, Works Well

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N250PCe, Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, Up to 300Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E interface

Pros: Great Speeds, PCIe, Antennas

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: At first my download speeds were very slow. After some small tweaking with my router, it runs like a charm and very fast!

(Keep in mind I have barely used it. If this breaks in the new future I'll be sure to write a new review.)

3 out of 5 eggsWorks--after a bit

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N250PCe, Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, Up to 300Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E interface

Pros: Easy installation (if it works the first time).

Cons: Product was either temperamental or on metaphorical tech-vacation during the first several installs.

Other Thoughts: The ability of this card to receive a signal came and went with the wind and outright didn't work when first installed. Even after multiple installation attempts, it either didn't work at all or did so intermittently. It works as described now, though it was still very a frustrating experience for what should have been a simple process.

2 out of 5 eggsWell it works, sort of.

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N250PCe, Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, Up to 300Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E interface

Pros: It works, sort of.

Cons: Very poor signal strength and very poor speed. Sometimes disconnects without reason. I had the model that this one replaced, if I hadn't thrown it away, I'd add it's model number here. It was almost as terrible. I had been using an RNX150UBE (USB) with a standard antenna and bought this as a more permanent solution. I ended up switching back to the USB adapter though.

I was getting 5 bars of signal on the single standard 3dbi antenna with the USB adapter. With these dual "9dbi" antennas, I was only getting 3 bars of signal. On top of that, my internet connection speed would only peak around 3mbps, whereas with the USB Adapter peaked at around 30mbps.

Needless to say, if you want a MUCH more reliable, faster, and still inexpensive wireless card, get the Rosewill RNX-N150UBE. It's a MUCH better card, and doesn't require any technical knowledge to install.

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N250PCe, Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, Up to 300Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E interface

Pros: Very easy install. ! Was working before I knew it.
Haven't had any issues for 6 weeks.

Cons: Not significant, but the antenna posts sometimes don't seem to stay where I put them.

Other Thoughts: Don't know what transfer rates I'm getting, but I haven't seen any problems. Play a lot of WOW online and it works good.
