2 out of 5 eggsQuite Frustrating

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

Pros: Worked fine 50% of the time

Cons: Technically connected to the Internet, but had painfully slow load times the other half of the time.

Other Thoughts: This was a very frustrating product. It almost would have been better if the adapter hadn't worked at all, because it gave me false hope. Honestly, the internet adapter in my 4th generation iPod was better than this.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid but no 5 GHz support

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

Pros: - Decent connectivity
- Easy to install

Cons: - No 5 GHz support (only 2.4 GHz)

Other Thoughts: Really it's a get what you pay for market for network cards, and this one is on the cheaper side. Nothing special but no real concerns.

1 out of 5 eggsHeadache waiting to happen

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

Pros: None.

Cons: Only works intermittently. Antennas are super sensitive. Constantly have to re-install driver software.

Other Thoughts: It only worked solidly for about a week. After that it wouldn't connect to any networks so I re-installed the driver and that worked for a week or so. Every time it goes out I have to re-install the driver numerous times before the computer recognizes the hardware. This thing fights me to do anything, pretty sure its sentient and hates me. If you really want to have aneurysm buy this piece of garbage.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well with free software

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

Pros: This device works really well with Linux kernel 4.0 and up. However, there are no free drivers for it below that version (in the kernel). Tested with Debian GNU/Linux sid, and it works very well for the price, out of the box. There was no hassle getting it to work and no need to install ndiswrapper or finding a non-free firmware that will work with it.

Cons: Does not work with free software in any Linux kernel below 4.0 (you may be able to compile it from source, though, if you need to). If you're wanting to use the free drivers, make sure you're using a testing or unstable branch of GNU/Linux.

Other Thoughts: I have never tested the non-free firmware or the device in Windows; only Debian GNU/Linux. Experience may suffer in Windows, according to a lot of other reviews. So, be sure to switch to a free operating system if you want to properly use the device.

1 out of 5 eggsWill NOT work With Windows 7 64 bit

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

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Will not detect any wireless network. I would have given 0 rating if I could have.

Other Thoughts: Do not BUY. I may have a bad unit.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate to my review

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

Pros: Still stands

Cons: Still stands

Other Thoughts: I just wanted to let everyone know that I called rosewill and they were very helpful. I didn't get mine replaced though. I decided to throw it in the garbage instead of dealing returning such a cheap item. Be sure to save the retail packaging "the box" because if you want a refund, you will need it. Also the warranty is good for a year on this item.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible product

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

Pros: Worked flawlessly for the time it was alive

Cons: After about two weeks or so of having this card, it stopped working. I tried everything to get back my normal speeds but, this piece of junk's antennas need to be moved every minute or so to keep having WiFi. Went from 1.7 mb/s to 1.5kb/s

Other Thoughts: -Buy this if you are suicidal and/or have no regard for your mental health because this thing drives any sane person nuts.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

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

Pros: Worked great for just over a month.

Cons: Came home one day from work, booted my pc and this thing was powered on but the the PC wouldn't recognize it. Tried uninstalling drivers, removing device physically and reinstalling several times with no luck. Took an old wireless card out of spare PC and I was back online.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I had bad luck, but a thirty day warranty is ridiculous. I'd steer clear of this one.

2 out of 5 eggsCouldn't hold its grit...

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

Pros: It didn't catch on fire or short-circuit

Cons: It stopped working.

Other Thoughts: Worked well for about a month before no longer picking up signals. Device reported working/functioning/started, even tried other antenna, drivers and slots. No dice.
