This review is from: Edimax BR-6478AC Dual-Band AC1200 Router / Extender / AP 3-in-1 Smart Device, Provides Simultaneous 2.4GHz & 5GHz with Gigabit Ports for Faster Connectivity, Features iQ-Setup for Easy Installation via Smartphone/Tablet
Pros: - Customer service was excellent
- Streams flawless video over the internet and to the Xbox for Windows Media Center Playback
- Same amount of lag as wired connection
- Can be set up as a signal receiver (bridge/extender) or sender (router)
Cons: My computer runs Windows 8.1 and was struggling with AC1200 drivers, so I opted to go the bridge/range extender route. I was trying to set this up initially as a range extender with a hidden 5ghz extended signal, but this wasn't an option. I emailed customer service and they provided me with a workaround that I was able to complete in about 10 minutes.
Other Thoughts: Judy from customer service was patient with my emails and figured out a a work around for my problem. She provided me easy to follow, step-by-step instructions to get it working. Thanks, Judy!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RNX-AC1200UBE, Dual Band Wireless AC1200 Wi-Fi Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11AC IEEE802.11a/b/g/n, Up to 867Mbps(5.0GHz) + 300Mbps(2.4GHz) Wireless Data Rates, USB3.0 Interface
Cons: Will not work with Windows 8.1. Driver error causes windows crash with error code BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER. Called Rosewill and they offered a return but no ETA on driver update. Since this item has ironegg, I may wait a month or so to see if they update the drivers before I return it.
Other Thoughts: I will update the review if a functioning driver is releasedREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Antenna gets pretty good reception. It is nice to move it around to find the signal "sweet spot"
Cons: Took me awhile to get it working. Windows 7 didn't automatically find the card like it did a different card I bought did. The driver that it came with doesn't make it work that well either.
Other Thoughts: I hooked the antenna from this card to a different card, jumping my signal from 2 to 5 bars. So I guess it worked out. I guess I paid $12 for a mediocre antenna.READ FULL REVIEW
