2 out of 5 eggsBad signal quality

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: - easy to install
- looks fancy
- decent price for a branded adapter

Cons: Not sure whether it's just me, but the signal quality is really not bad, it's rarely over 3 bars (out of 5) and is never over 4 bars, even all my cell phone, laptop wireless signal are at full 5 bars, and the router is very close.

Tried driver updates and everything, the signal quality is still not very ideal. Must have a somewhat defective unit, :-)

Other Thoughts: Great card, would buy again.

1 out of 5 eggsRefuses to work properly

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: None so far

Cons: This product refuses to work. I am getting a measly 0.5 mbps on speedtest.net, sometimes peaking at 4 mbps. This is ridiculously slow. My last wireless adapter got 25 mbps on speedtest.

Worse yet, when this adapter connects to the internet, it manages to decrease the speed of the wifi to all wifi devices in the house to about 7 mbps! I didn't even know that was possible. I've tried reinstalling the drivers a couple times with no luck.

Other Thoughts: I expected more from such a highly reviewed product...

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Easy to install, nice price, shipped fast, recognized wireless network immediately.

Cons: It really doesn't perform the way I need it to. When used for surfing the web or streaming videos it seems to be okay. But when I'm gaming online I get constant problems with the connection and my ping is spiking very high every 5-10 seconds. Makes games pretty unplayable. I've tried downloading drivers from TP link, and the Qualcomm Atheros Drivers and nothing made a difference. I bought a better antenna and that didn't fix anything either. I really am considering returning it, as my old USB WiFi dongle is performing way better.

Other Thoughts: Disappointing.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: None

Cons: Poor reception regardless of antenna positioning. Three antennas seem to be a gimmick. Replaced this with a USB dongle WiFi card and went from 2 bars to 5 bars instantly.

Updated to all the latest drivers from the internet. Tried some other steps that were recommended in forums. Nothing worked.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Way better than my USB 5Ghz adapter

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Stable
Fast
Works

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I can't test range due to my incredibly small room (5 bars though at 10ft xP )
My connection is 180Mbit/sec Ethernet from my router and 170Mbit from this adapter. I'd say that's well within standards. If its on sale, and you need/ want an internal adapter I'd get this one.

2 out of 5 eggsFlaky piece of garbage

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Comes with low profile bracket. Affordable if it worked like advertised (see below).

Cons: Has problems staying connected to 5Ghz despite 4 or 5 "bars". Loses "internet access" even when connected. Randomly loses connection or access even on normal 2.4Ghz. channels, though slightly better than 5Ghz.

Other Thoughts: 4 other computers/phones can stay connected to 5Ghz (Asus RT-N66U) without issue, so it's not from the router. Used wifi analyzer to find open channels or potential conflicts... none found. Tried different PCI-express slot, no luck. Not sure it is worth the trouble/cost to return to have it maybe happen again.

5 out of 5 eggsHighly recommend

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: Reasonable price, significantly improved signal

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This thing has made my life so much better, just had to log on and write a review. Been using it for over a year now and it never drops on me, my work PC is stashed away in a corner on a different floor from my router and this card picks up the signal beautifully while several other of my USB adapters were unable to.
