    • A. I just installed it in Windows 7 64 bit; the OS was not able to assign drivers from the included ones on the hard disc but the included driver on the CD worked fine, once I was connected to the internet I was able to update the drivers from windows update. It worked fine. I am actually quite impressed with the quality for $15.

    Set-up is simple and quick. Utility software that it comes with is pretty good; nothing fancy but it supplies you with what you need, advanced user or not. Internet speed is mostly commendable - a few issues with videos buffering or pages loading but the rest of what I use it for (downloading/gaming) doesn't seem to have any issues. I experienced a notable number of disconnects. For the past few days it's been stable but for the first week or so I had some issues with my connection. Nothing too bad just annoying while gaming. I'm an avid gamer and computer geek so there is some experience and knowledge behind this review. I would absolutely recommend giving this product a try, keeping in mind it's inexpensive and it can be returned if need be.

    I wanted a cheap card to connect to a G network at home. I saw this priced about the same as cheap cards that max out at G standard but this was N which, with the correct wireless router, should connect much faster and is backward compatible with both G and B 802.11 standards. I opened the computer, popped it into an open PCI slot and closed up. Once I turned on the computer, which runs Windows 7 64bit, it recognised the card but was unable to assign drivers - but was fine when I put the CD that accompanied the card in and ran the device manager. Once connected I was then able to update to the latest drivers with Windows Update. It uses a Realtek 8190 wireless N chip on the board. I think its a fantastic deal for $15. Plus shipping was included and really fast for me - I got it in 2 days! The card works well and I get good speeds. Would recommend.

    Ordered this product off of Walmart Site to Store, took 6 days, which I expected. The product is just awesome. Have this item connected to the Belkin Play N600. I'm at "Excellent" signal two rooms away from the router at 150 Mbps. I'm unable to get full N because I have other devices on the router that are G, and thus the router can't broadcast N and G at the same time; that's with EVERY router ever made. So don't be upset if this device won't get you full N speeds; look at your other devices first. This product is surprisingly small. Clicked in the PCI slot without a hitch. Then installed the driver with the provided CD. Works instantly, with 0 disconnects so far. This piece of technology is just amazing. If you have doubts because of price; just get it. Do it.

    Installed in my desktop running Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit. New 'hardware found' came up and I browsed to the cd disk that came wth the card. Windows instantly found the correct driver on the cd and insalled it. I've always used Netgear or Belkin cards in the past which always install their own useless wireless control panel software. None of that here, just hardware and driver. Works great and is a very solid built card. Easiest hardware I have ever installed.

    $15 for an N card, what else needs to be said. Some drops and noise, but I am also located 250 ft from a shared router and 2.4GHz phones, so really not that bad. Delivered on time. Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit did not auto install drivers, the install disk worked, and once I updated the latest drivers from the web, I went from 30% signal to consistant >70% on strength and quality with no packet losses. Works on Skype, MagicJack, Ventrillo with minor latency (again, see my distance from router which may be the issue).

    At first i thought "what a great deal!" when i put the product in and installed the drivers, i thought i was going to have a good thing with this card. Turns out, this card caused me a lot of problems. The first few days it had decent speed. then it dropped to about 1-2Mbps. I went to speedtest.net and found out it was actually averaging about 1 Mbps (over about 10 attempts) the highest it went was 4Mbps, the previous test and test after that dropped back down to about .5Mbps, being the only computer on in the house. So after a little tinkering rather than just returning it, I decided to plug in my usb adapter, and delete all software/drivers for the card. Reinstalled using just Windows update and my speed jumped to a consistent 6-8 Mbps. FINAL WORDS: after uninstalling the cd software and just letting windows run the card, I more than doubled my speed. For the price, it caused a lot of hassle, but in the end it is worth it (if you let windows install the drivers. the cd drivers are outdated anyway)

    This wireless PCI card will work in all the regular Windows OS, but you have to choose carefully when you are building a Linux system. Not all adapters work in Linux. I am running Linux Mint Julia 64 bit, and with a little research (Google) and patience, this adapter works. Since configured, it has worked flawlessly, and the price is great.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    This wireless adapter installed in my (2004 - Dell - Desk-Top Computer - Windows XP) in under 1/2 hour. 1. Be sure you have a wireless router... 2. Be sure you have an available PCI Slot on the back of your computer... 3. Turn off your computer and un-plug all wires... 4. Open computer and remove slot plate cover... 5. Firmly insert adapter and secure, be sure it will fit the slot... 6. Close computer and attach your wires. 7. Turn on your PC and insert the Install Disk... 8. Follow menu instructions and add the router password, (located on the back of router or call your provider) and your computer is now wireless and can be moved to most locations in your home! You Do Not Need the 'Ethernet Cable' anymore or connected for this procedure! And that's how it worked for me.... ! Good Luck with Yours !!

    The product came fast and works perfectly fine. My only complaint is there is no instruction manual on how to install the product in your computer. I find a manual would be very helpful to those who don't know much about computers, like me. We had to call my brother to help talk us through the installation. Overall the product is as described and works good.

    We have two desktop computers. I have the modem/router on my desktop. My husband was using a USB connected wireless router. He was having all kinds of connection problems. Since installing this device, he has not had any problems connecting to the internet. He said it was the best thing he has purchased in a while.
