Pros: would have been good if it work and I had gotten any support a all from asus.

Other Thoughts: no don't buy asus products

1 out of 5 eggsWasted Time

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Disk wouldn't install software to complete install. Installing drivers and utilities for OS from disk or manufacturer didn't work. Newegg emailed a tech support site to assist, but the tech support number states the service is no longer available. What should have been the easiest part of a new build turned out to be the longest, most time consuming, with no working resolution. Manufacturer assistance was equally worthless and frustrating.

Other Thoughts: No.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsPlug and Play, what more to say

Pros: Not having a CD rom, i was able to add this to my pc within 5 minutes, and was able to download and install the driver right from the website with no issue.

the driver was very basic with no bloat-ware, and i can see wireless signals blocks away.

when i compare the wireless signals with this card to my laptop, i can find way more using the card.

Cons: not going to get the speeds of LAN, but that is not a problem with the product.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Card

Pros: - Works
- Easy Setup

5 out of 5 eggsSolid adapter, easy setup, no problems so far.

Pros: - Setup was really simple, you could choose between using default wireless drivers or ASUS wifi program (I chose the drivers for less clutter)
- Really strong signal, better than my experience with external adapters.

Cons: - None so far.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend it. I was hesitant at first after reading the reviews but I bought it anyway since the price was good for the card. Don't regret it.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for a month, now nothing

Pros: Worked great after initial installation. Speed was decent (only 5ft from router). Occasionally would drop connection speed drastically or entirely, typically solved by a reboot.

Cons: After about a month of use, the adapter stopped working entirely. I've since connected my computer via Ethernet cable to bypass the adapter, works fine. I anticipate returning the adapter.

Other Thoughts: I would not purchase again or recommend the product. A month of proper function is not worth it.

1 out of 5 eggs5 out of 5 cards tested SLOW!!!!

Pros: None that I experienced. . .

Cons: Slow!
Tested with a Netgear R6300 with 5ghz disabled. All other devices have a transfer rate of 40mbps via 2.4ghz N with interference from the tower.

This card will only connect at 144mbps under status.
I tested it at 20 feet with direct line of sight between Tower and Router
With laptop on and in the same room my transfer rate is 6mbps
With laptop off and ALL other devices that could create interference off I get a maximum transfer rated of 15mbps but it immediately slows to 10mbps.

Other Thoughts: I tested the Laptop in the same location as my desktop (literally placed on top of my tower) and it tested at a steady 35mbps with my tower on.

I have installed 5 of these cards in my friends and family members systems because it got decent reviews. Every single card had a download issue with the Steam client and would hard lock the computer periodically while downloading through steam, they also tested extremely slow. I sold them on craigslist and replaced them with Linksys WMP600N and the steam issue went away and saw a noticeable increase in performance .

Considering I have dealt with 5 of these cards total and ALL 5 gave me issues with steam and had poor performance I'm going to give them 1 egg as it seems to be a trend. . .

I have a support ticket with ASUS right now for the card installed in my system. So far their response is it must be my router, even when other devices perform 4-5 times faster than the ASUS card. . .

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggs"connected with no internet access"

Pros: cheap

Cons: terrible UI/software
countless users with problem of no internet access
-- no known solutions if this occurs

Other Thoughts: bought this to upgrade from a thumbstick cheap wifi adapter. Upon installing the hardware and software I encountered a frustrating issue: the adapter shows "connected" status to my home network but also it has "no internet access". With a quick google search I instantly found pages of google links to threads of users with the same issue. It seemed no accurate solution was ever found in these cases and they all went as far as program commands and such to try to fix the issue with no avail. All the threads I viewed were left unsolved and I am already set on returning this item.

Horrible software UI as well. None of the networks I am familiar with are listed in the ASUS software which is almost necessary to use with this item

Don't buy. if you need cheap just buy a thumbstick adapter but if you want this type of integrated pci adapter either don't buy one this cheap or simply find another model.

1 out of 5 eggsLiterally the worst adapter I have ever owned.

Pros: At least it can connect to the internet.

Cons: Upstream is absolutely horrid. I had my adapter literally less than ten feet away from my access point, and it couldn't push more than 2 megabits per second.

The downstream is okay, but it's nowhere near the advertised rates. Maybe 60 at most, and that's pushing it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: I haven't had any issues with the product. It works great, and does it's job.

Cons: The drivers and bundled software are difficult to use, it will require that you look things up, and this will be confusing since some information is given for if you use it with an Asus router, but don't mention this. So you will think some functionality is missing.

Other Thoughts: Despite the rough start, once you get it going and figure out how to use the software it is a very good product.
