    I set this up in fall 2016 in a Dell Vostro desktop running Windows 10 that had a flaky wireless NIC from another manufacturer but the wired ethernet connection worked fine. Powered it off, opened up the case, swapped cards, put it back together, started it up, inserted the driver disk, installed the driver and TP-Link utility (which is very nice, BTW), and was online in minutes talking with a Linksys E-series gigabit wireless router on the 5-GHz band. No complaints here. As always, make sure you mind static electricity when you install these. When you first pull it out of the protective bag, always have one hand on the computer case's bare metal and the FIRST thing you touch on the NIC should be the big metal end plate, NOT the circuit board or any of the components. Lick your fingers before you do any of this to enhance conductivity, and then any errant static electricity will be eliminated between you, the case, and the NIC, and you'll protect the circuitry.

    Plug and play!

    I currently have a custom built PC that always kept dropping signal while using a netgear USB WiFi adapter. I recently received this product in the mail and was stoked to see if it worked as intended. I was kind of skeptical due to the fact that some people who are running windows 10 had issues with drivers and the computer detecting it. I'm obviously running windows 10, i simply plugged it in and it worked immediately! No running the CD or finding drivers online. Downloads are doubled what they use to be when i was using my USB WiFi adapter. Only reason i give 4/5 is because the amount of time I had to wait for shipping. It took 9 days to get to my house (I'm located in southern California). I've never had to wait that long while using other online retailers. Otherwise, great product!

    I wanted to get a faster wireless card and the reviews on this card looked good. The first problem I had during installation is that the install software said that the adapter was not found. Googling showed that others had problems too. I had to make a change in my BIOS settings so the software could find the hardware. Then the driver that was included on the included CD was dated from 2006. There is no driver specifically for Windows 10 but I did find one online for Windows 8 and that runs in 10 just fine. Pleased with the performance improvement.

    Installed the card into the proper slot in the computer in a few seconds, hit the power button and, by the time the computer was done booting up, i was immediately seeing a list of detected wifi networks, just like a laptop will show when asked, and with ours at the top of the list. I set up the security stuff, and was online in one minute, and with very good signal strength (3 of 4 bars, and the wifi router is in the main house 50-feet away, through walls and a spruce tree)

    Good Wifi card

    I was having trouble with getting good signal on a PC that's 1 floor up from our access point. This card was definitely an improvement on signal strength. The only downside was that TP Link doesn't have a Windows 10 driver yet and with the default Microsoft driver, the card would lose signal every 15 minutes or so. Installing the Qualcomm driver worked fine, though it took some googling to find it.

    Didn't work

    It had great reviews but I could not get this thing to work at all. It would randomly kick me off and I would become frustrated. The reason I bought this was because I thought my desktop didn't have a wifi card but it did and it never kicked me off, so it wasn't the signal strength. I really liked it too, it was way faster than the one inside my desktop. I tried really hard to get the drivers to work on this, but in the end I gave up.

    I thought I was going to get a dud. Reading from the reviews of previous people, I was praying that my card works as I didn't want to go through an exhange process. Thankfully I had a good card that works flawlessly at home. Have it on 5 ghz and it does an amazing performance! I also appreciate them adding a small form factor card bracket to go into my desktop as it came with a traditional bracket.

    Strong signal, getting kicked off internet ALOT

    TimTamHunter

    Pros: Easy installation, fit perfectly, amazing signal speed Cons: Getting kicked off about every 5 minutes, have to restart the card to get it working again. Has ups and downs for how well it works From a gaming perspective, I can't really play games that require no packet loss, (League of Legends) But for games like World of Warcraft, its good. From basic use, office work, school work, this card works like a charm.

    I was looking for a permanent solution and not a USB one, and this turned out to be great! It worked with my windows 10 desktop and I didn't even need drivers. I have to say worth the money spent, I prayed I wouldn't get a lemon like some of the other reviews, and am glad to say that my card works great! Definitely worth the purchase.

    Although the drivers from the manufacturer are not available, this card installs fine on a Win10 and performs like a charm. I've had issues with the wireless USB adapter from TP-LInk when using it with VMs but this one works fine. Not much more i can add outside of the product specs to give you an "ahhhh" moment but this works fine for the price.

    Received my wifi card 3 days after purchase. Installed easily onto my MSI board. Windows 10 picked up the device immediatly. I was up and online within 5 minutes. Won't pick up the 5ghz signal, but this particular machine is quite far from the wireless router. Transfer speeds on the 2.4ghz network is good enough.

    The card works great for me now. When I got it I used the CD drivers and they made my computer go into recovery.So I had to reload my hard drive image from a earlier time and just let it us the Windows drivers. With those drivers it is working fine. TP-lINK does not have Windows 10 drivers.

    I haven't had the best experience with external wireless products. This was an easy install into the computer and I didn't have to load any third party software for it to pick up signal. Picks up wifi the through multiple walls that Xbox one has problems reading sometimes.

    I needed to make my PC wireless because it sits in the 1st floor where there isn't any internet connection. Found this one at best buy and it did the job. It was easy to install and worked right away once the Wi-Fi key is added.

    Dont even try using this on windows 10. TP-Link still hasn't updated drivers for an operating system that's now 5 years old. On windows 10 with the most recently updated drivers I get BELOW 1 Megabit per second.
