1 out of 5 eggsSo many connection many...

Pros: Can connects to the internet.
Drivers are easy to install.
The shorter bracket option is nice

Cons: Drops connections so frequently it is ridiculous. This thing can't consistently keep a connection if it were to save its life depended on it. I've dried this out with my computer in different locations in the house but it is still just as inconsistent. One time I got to 1.5 Mb/s in download time for about an hour and then it kept going up and down from 750kb/s to 20kb/s. Seriously, do not buy this. It is so stupid. It will say I have a full bar connection on my computer but then it takes about a minute just to open up Google or will say my download speed is less the 500kb/s. The biggest glaring issue of this card is the lack of consistency it provides. It oscillates so much that it is frustrating.

Other Thoughts: I was expecting more from an ASUS product, all of their products have worked fabulously for me in the past, but this one is disappointing. If all you want to do is connect to the internet to just say that you're connected to the internet, then get this. If you want to be able to actually use the internet and do things like, say online gaming, don't buy this. If you don't want to get so ticked off at your internet connection that you want to rip out the network card and shove it through your monitor, don't buy this. The wireless network cards in the other desktop computers around my home work perfectly fine. This one is just a pile of tosh. It is rubbish. I highly recommend against purchasing it because it is so inconsistent with its connection. I'd actually recommend against using wireless altogether, use ethernet. If you absolutely have to connect through wireless, don't use this. There are plenty better ones out there.

2 out of 5 eggsOh so slow

Pros: Namebrand. Not too expensive. Worked, sort of.

Cons: Very slow (tried it both with and without the Asus software) -- didn't seem to be due to the signal, because I was getting 4 bars. Also, the Asus software put a much larger load on the CPU than I would have liked. Still, I suffered with it for over a year, thinking that it was partly because I was running it on a 2GB, Core 2 E7200 Vista machine.

Very recently upgraded the machine to 8GB Ivy Bridge SSD Win 7 Pro -- expected to see a big improvement -- but instead, even though the connection still showed as four or five bars / 130Mbs in the Control Panel, topped out at 8Mbs download. Finally got fed up -- and after a bit of research, replaced it with an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205.

Whaddya know -- download reading jumped up to 66Mbs -- an eightfold increase.

Other Thoughts: Adios Asus (at least for wireless PCI-E cards).

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great Overall...

Pros: I bought two of these for a home Win7 and one Win8.1 machine. Both are working flawlessly after a few initial problems. Good stable connection without any disconnects so far, also very good download speeds.

Cons: Win8.1 worked right out of the gate, but installing drivers on the Win7 machine was a nightmare. I downloaded the current version from the ASUS website and for whatever reason Windows would not take them through Device Manager. I have no clue why; I've probably done this a hundred times and never had a problem. Finally I gave up and installed from the CD, and everything has been smooth sailing.

Other Thoughts: I had to move the router into the same room as the workstations to get these to work at all, so the range is less than I would want, but that's probably true of any wireless device. The weird thing was that they showed three bars signal strength initially, yet still would not work. So I doubt that was accurate. I suspect that a lot of problems people have had with these is simply due to being too far from the source, because I spent about four hours pulling my hair out before I finally gave up and moved the router. The router was in an upstairs bedroom and these are on the other side of the house and downstairs, so that was just wishful thinking on my part. But...three bars, you know?

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Adapter

Pros: Speeds are great. Trusted ASUS hardware.

Cons: DO NOT install the ASUS controller/utility. Just install the driver and let Windows connect to the internet. Using the ASUS software was very strange, the card was trying to act as its own internet router and would not connect to my WiFi despite messing with all the settings. My other computers were trying to connect to it >.< I had to uninstall the ASUS utility to get it to connect to the internet. Otherwise, it works perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsNice LAN Card

Pros: The price was right, Newegg shipping was right on time as usual, the card seems very fast to me. The wireless LAN card works very well for me.

Cons: The ASUS utility software that comes with the card is very confusing for me and hard to use. I struggled with it for an hour and then uninstalled it and re-installed using the " Only use Windows wireless function" selection to install the card, instead of the ASUS WLAN utility option. It now works great? I am using Windows 7 Home Premium.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: Wouldn't even let my computer boot up.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a rig that I was building for my dad. If I had this thing installed, my computer wouldn't even boot up. Once I took out the card, the rig would boot up just fine.

I used to associate the Asus brand with quality but not anymore.

This thing is just a headache.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't disregard the negative reviews

Pros: * Eventually connects to the internet. (Keyword: Eventually)
* Does run at a good speed.

Cons: * Connection drops when in other rooms of my house.
* Fights with me all the time. Everything I try to do it doesn't want to do it.
* One of the antennae broke.
* Obnoxious interface for the program provided with the card.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my first rig, it was pretty cheap and I was confident in the purchase. This was the only flop in my whole rig, and it resulted in my buying a 50 foot ethernet cable to connect to my router downstairs. It doesn't want to connect to a signal in my room, when the router is just down the stairs, and in my basement it's been having some issues keeping my settings (Though this might be a windows issue, not sure yet...). The program they give you to work hand-in-hand with the card is very clunky, and not user-friendly.

The only reason I gave it two eggs instead of one, is because it DOES eventually connect, but I risk connection drops and it's very unreliable.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT GET THIS

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Drops connection, will not make connection, distance is always a problem, interference of ANY kind will make it not work whatsoever.

To make matters worse, the utility is one of the worst and most confusing I've ever used. I've used a lot in my decade and a half of technical employment and this by far is the worst I've ever encountered.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT GET THIS

1 out of 5 eggsHorridddddddd

Pros: Asus. Simple install. Two antenna.

Cons: Hyper-technically not supported in Windows 8

Other Thoughts: This card has major issues with Windows 8. For starters, do not install using the Utility - or you will experience constant dropping of connection. Use Windows as the Utility (Option given during driver install).

Okay. So already having to tweak this card to work with modern equipment... it gets worse. This card will give you a headache as it is very very very sensitive to which routers it will work with. If you just happen to not have the right router.... well be prepared for dial speeds.

Spend the few extra bucks. Get the nicer ones. Not this outsourced doozy.
