5 out of 5 eggsA Speed Test

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900PCE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antennas

Pros: I have had this card for a year, and it has worked fine on a PC that is dedicated to distributed computing projects (World Community Grid, Folding@home). Large files need to be transferred, and small ones too; it is on 24/7.

It has shown a constant 130 Mbps speed in the tray icon on the 802.11a band (5 GHz), and I was wondering if that meant anything. So I compared it to a Rosewill RNX-N600PCE PCIe card (2 antennas with 3 dB gain) also on the 5 GHz band. The N600 showed a 26 Mpbs speed during the test, but that varies from maybe 19 to 54 Mpbs over time. Both machines run Win7 64-bit, and showed 3 bars signal strength, and were about equal distance from the wireless access point.

I uploaded an Nvidia 340.52 driver file (273.56 MB) to both machines in sequence. The N900 card took 2 minutes 15 seconds, while the N600 card took 3 minutes 30 seconds. So in fact there was a speed difference, and the extra antenna may be worth it in some cases (both work fine for my purposes).

Cons: None, though I would like to see the longer 3 dB gain antennas on this card too. Whether they would do much good is another question.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesnt come with win 8 driver

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900PCE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antennas

Pros: I looks like a WIFI card. Has detailed instructions for Windows 7, Vista, and XP.

Cons: Bought a WIFI card that doesn't come with win 8 drivers. Need internet to DL the drivers -_-. If i had internet i wouldn't need your WIFI card. I grab the handy hard drive and head to a friends house to DL the driver. Typed the part number as its written on the CD and it doesn't come up. search through there huge history and finally found the windows 8.1 driver. downloaded the driver and it doesn't work. Now I have to go on a wild goose chase thru post and forums to get your product to work? 1 star sir. Last rant, windows XP! Vista! and finally 7!? i can understand 7 but XP?! and not have an updated driver for 8? IDK if that is just laziness or a lack of care with sending out quality products to your consumer. You got my money so touche to you. Hopefully other will read this comment before buying. You are not at 100% blame here. Windows 8 sucks and is the worst OS IMO.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Wifi Range, randomly disconnects. Returned.

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900PCE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antennas

Pros: It is fast when it is connected.

Cons: It has terrible range and can't see a router at the other end of the house. It also randomly disconnects (I assume because it will suddenly be unable to see the network at all.) Returned with $5 shipping charge.

Other Thoughts: Even though I got it on sale for under $20, this wifi adapter was not worth any of it.

3 out of 5 eggsReally slow.

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900PCE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antennas

Pros: Works (sort of)
Drivers are easy to install

Cons: The card performs really slow. On a 8 Mbps connection, I only get 1-3 Mbps on 2.4 Ghz.

Other Thoughts: I tried multiple OS's and drivers with no luck. I honestly would go with a USB adapter.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat adapter for the price

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900PCE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antennas

Pros: Easy to set up and use.
Dual band (obviously).
Inexpensive.

Cons: Signal is less than my 5 year old laptop was getting in the same place, across both 2.4 and 5 bands.
Somehow allows simultaneous dual band usage on WinXP, but not 7? Unless I'm reading something wrong.

Other Thoughts: Some people have had issues with these, mine seemed to be as advertised. Wish the signal was stronger but I'm not moving around, so it's constant at least.

5 out of 5 eggsnice

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900PCE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antennas

Pros: great card so far, plug and play with windows 8.1 so there is no need to install drivers (which is really nice and why i bought it). I cant say if it loads without driver install on any other OS but it def does for win8.

Cons: none so far

5 out of 5 eggsSuper fast!

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N900PCE, Dual Band Wireless N900 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450Mbps(5.0GHz) + 450Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antennas

Pros: I purchased this for my sons build since he had no close data jack in his room. It installed in a snap, and after loading the drivers, it took off! He was getting a faster WiFi connection with this card than I was getting with my wired connection! The 5.0 GHz surely makes the difference. Nice job, Rosewill!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was so impressed by the speed of this thing, I bought another for my system. Of course the price was right - Thanks Newegg!
