2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Inexpensive
- Plug and Play

Cons: Constantly hopping between limited and full connectivity

Other Thoughts: Had it work for a few hours and after adding a new graphics card to my system, it decides not to want to full connect to my network despite my laptop having full connectivity to write this review. Reinstalled the drivers, restarted the system, continuously attempted to reconnect my network, switch the channel of my router to match the adapter channel and still does not want to function like it should.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small form factor
Easy to set up

Cons: I very rarely was able to get over a 3 bar connection to my network, regardless of how I positioned my router. After about 6 months, the card started to partially drop my network connection (i.e., it was still "connected to the network" but I couldn't see anything beyond my router). Spent some time fiddling with the router because I thought the problem occurred as a result of one of my housemates meddling with the settings, but finally replaced the router (it was old anyway). I still experienced partially dropped connections, but no one else had problems with their connections. So the problem has to be with this card (yes, I've checked the drivers and all; still problems). Thankfully it likes to connect to networks in just a couple seconds, which minimizes inconvenience to some extent, except that the time between dropped connections dropped rapidly from once every couple days to once every half hour or less, which is entirely unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: I'm a little surprised because I've never had problems with TP Link cards before, but maybe don't get this particular card.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Adapter, Win 8 installed it in setup!

Pros: Strong signal form 2 rooms away, strong enough to game with! Windows 8 detected and installed it automatically. Removable antenna so you can install a better one if you want!

Cons: Win 7 didnt auto install, had to use disc. the disc included is a mini cd, so slot loading laptop users may want to get drivers from website or use another pc to copy contents to flash drive.

Pros: Good price, good range.

Cons: Drops out from time to time. Ping is always soaring for no reason, and the software that comes in the disc is not available on the site.

1 out of 5 eggsLast and final review

Pros: Worked great WHEN it worked, I'm just sick of messing with it...Where do I even begin. If you go back a couple of pages, you will see where I left reviews for this thing months ago. This thing is just plain flunky for me, it's no good. It will not break 179kb/s no matter what I do now...

Cons: I went from an AMD setup with the infamous MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ (which has worked GREAT for me, strong steady for 2 years, but irrelevant), and it would barely work. I went between drivers so much I finally just gave up on it, it would not give me my speeds. So I built a new Intel build with a ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 and it worked PERFECTLY...for about.....6 months... I am over it, this thing won't work for me.

Other Thoughts: If I don't figure out how to get this driver fixed soon (like this weekend), and I have to keep running a 12 ft cable, to an old dumb stupid linksys hub, and then a 6ft cable to my PC, this thing is going in the garbage.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price

Cons: - Worse link stability than 5 year old my laptop, at the exact same location. Loses connection easily when you do not have constant data stream flowing.
- Very little control over driver, like transmit power and stuff.

Other Thoughts: I would expect much better in a standalone card with antenna than the little stuff in my middle-end old laptop.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for your review and we are sorry to see that this device gave you some issues.

If you haven't done so already then you can update the Driver to the latest version from our website at: http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=&model=TL-WN781ND#down

I would also suggest trying a different PCIe port if available to see if you get the same results.

We do have a 2 year manufacture RMA policy to replace this device if you are having issues.

You can always feel free to contact me directly for any questions or concerns at howard.he@tp-link.com.


Best Regards!
