1 out of 5 eggsno connection to internet

Pros: None that I have seen so far

Cons: This card continuously loses connection to the internet. It connects to network, just not to internet. I can't do anything with it. I cant play games and i can't browse the internet. It only works for a minute at most then has no connection to the internet for a long periods of time.

I run Windows 10 64-but, but at first I was using Windows 7 64-bit. In both cases, I had the same issue. I uninstalled, reinstalled it, did manual updates to driver and tried uninstalling it again. The support page for this card is unhelpful as it says windows 10 is plug and play. I even tried windows 7 and 8 drivers to no avail. This card is useless.

2 out of 5 eggsBudget Friendly

Pros: Affordable. It's cheap. When it works, it works well. Don't expect it to work long however.

Cons: Stretching an ethernet cable across my apartment and constantly tripping over it is less of a headache then this card turned out to be. When the adapter is pushed to download large files (such as downloading games with Steam) it likes to die. I could never get over 50kbps on Steam and it would disconnect every 5 seconds, locking up the PC for 30 seconds at a time.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWorks wonderfully

Pros: As advertised it gets the job done when it comes to connection to wireless. Has quite a far range/strength of reception. Has the quick connect button on the back if your router supports that.

Cons: The "ASUS connectivity suite" that the driver can come with is almost too much information and customizeability that the average user can make the most of. Stick with the windows option of connectivity unless you have a reason to mess with extremely advanced settings.

Other Thoughts: Overall it is a solid purchase for the price and I would recommend this for just about anyone with a need for a wireless card. Solid investment.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth your money

Pros: Easy install. Small. ASUS.

Cons: This card has been nothing but trouble since day 1. Started with windows 8. Continuously dropped connection from my network. Upgraded to 8.1, same issue. Driver troubleshooting solved nothing. For about the last 3 months it has been working relatively well on fully updated Win 8.1. Upgraded to Win10, does not work. Connects to network, not to internet. I paid only $35 for this card, and will never skimp again. Spend the $80-100 to get a card that doesn't need babysitting all the time, that's the moral of my story. And sorry ASUS, but your wireless cards are now off the table.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

Pros: Good card, fairly priced, no real problems. Easy to install both physically and as far as drivers go.

Cons: Somewhat limited range and reception. Very rarely drops connection for unknown reasons.

Other Thoughts: Never had any problems with the card itself. All problems seem to originate from it's distance from the router and any obstacles between them.

4 out of 5 eggsReasonable network card

Pros: Inexpensive card that works. Network card speed fast enough to keep up with my broadband connection.

Cons: Did not work with Windows 8.1 without installing a driver. After the driver was installed the card worked fine but the extra step was an inconvenience.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks pretty Well

Pros: easy install
seems to work out of box

Cons: Utility doesn't work with Windows 8.1 as far as I can tell
I believe it has a RealTek chipset so you need to go to them for FW updates.

Other Thoughts: Asus website and support seems to be pretty lousy on this product. After doing some googling, I found that it has a RealTek chipset and the RTL8192CE-VA4 drivers seem to work okay...for me anyway. There doesn't seem to be too much support for Windows 8.1

It's working well so far, I'm getting 70Mbps through a wall and up a floor. My wired connection speed is ~130Mbps, and 70 is about the fastest I've been able to get in my current location so I'm pretty happy.

2 out of 5 eggsWas great... while it lasted.

Pros: Easy install, both hardware and software. Got everything up and running fast.

Cons: Within a week or so, my computer started freezing up every hour or so. Thinking it was the router, I poured through forms and driver updates trying to make something work. My tower has fantastic airflow, but it seems the router was overheating under light load. I bought a larger card with better heat dissipation; after the switch, my computer hasn't frozen since. Hearing bad things about ASUS support, I'm not going to even bother.

Other Thoughts: Unless you plan on liquid cooling your wireless card (what/why???), I wouldn't recommend this.
