1 out of 5 eggsDoes not play well with Linux

Pros: It's a network card by a reputable company.

Cons: It doesn't work correctly in Linux. I tried 4-5 different Linux distributions with it. They all had issues (the same issues). It seems to be a driver thing with the standard Linux drivers for this chipset. So it very well may not be the card's fault. Either way, it's a waste of $30 for me.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks; Okay range

Pros: Works. Non-obtrusive. Range is good for the money.

Cons: Had an issue where placing my PC's case against the wall cut all signal, I recommend getting some antenna extensions if you have this problem

4 out of 5 eggsReasonable speed, not crazy expensive

Pros: Like the title says, it has reasonable speed for its price. I've had a good experience with it so far. Easy to install. You can save multiple networks and its incredibly easy to switch between them. I believe (though I haven't tried) you can use it without installing the software.

Cons: Doesn't have 5ghz ant. (not a big deal right now but it would have been nice)

Other Thoughts: So far I've only had a few issues but they were my own faults of which I figured out from prior experience.

1 out of 5 eggsDriver problems

Pros: It's cheap, and when it works, does fairly well as far as speed is considered.

Cons: Driver problems. Installed it both with Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, and in both cases the driver problems would cause the whole computer to freeze after using this device for 20 minutes or less. Customer service from Asus was terrible, their only suggestions were to uninstall and reinstall the driver, then to try to update my bios. Neither or which resolved the issue.

Other Thoughts: I continued to research the issue, and found a bunch of other people with the exact same issue who couldn't get it resolved, and who had similar negative experiences with Asus support. I would not recommend buying this, instead, get something from D-Link or Linksys. I ended up with a D-link wireless adapter, and haven't had any problems since.

2 out of 5 eggsAsus PCE-N15 Adapter

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Device ships with horrible drivers. I downloaded the Realtek drivers that other members have suggested. I was still receiving terrible connectivity. My ping during games would not be high, but there were times that my internet would cut out. Download speeds were horrible.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on buying this, don't. At least if you are trying to download and play games .

3 out of 5 eggsMaybe defective

Pros: Seems fast on G band. Fits in a "slim" case. Good price.

Cons: Will not connect to my routers N band. It did at first but by the time I had all of my devices connected, the adapter's utility quit showing the N band to be connected. My other devices do connect to the N band. I believe the adapter to be defective. No luck trying to get help from ASUS.

Other Thoughts: I will keep it as I do not really need the N band on that device, but I will think twice before buying an ASUS product again.

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?
