Poor connection quality. If you enjoy intermittent latency issues for no reason, this is the one. Try different drivers (it's actually a Realtek 8812AE chip) but it's still trash. Under high load, there's a high pitched squeal coming from it. Poor RF circuit design.
Don't buy it.

Strong connections. Minimal lag spikes, and very good value for it's price. Usable for gaming, though less then ideal.
A royal pain to install. Had a lot of trouble getting it to stay in the socket, and drivers where a pain.
This is a good card for it's price point. Installing it and dealing with it's drivers was a huge issue, and it took me a while to get sorted. Now that it's working, it's doing it's job really well, and I quite satisfied with it's performance, even if it is less then ideal for gaming ( I average a 40 mb download, and an 18 mb upload, which is serviceable for gaming). Overall, a good card, minus it's installation problems.

If the card is recognized - yes, it works fast. There are issues as the card does not sit properly in PCI-e slot.
Installed on Asus P55 mobo. The PCI-e card is NOT snug and moves around and losses connection.
I do not recommend for ASUS-p55 mother boards,

Card has 2 good-sized antennas, and fits nice and snug in the PCIe slot. Thanks to the other two reviews, I avoided installation issues by stopping the automatic installation by Windows. Instead, I had the driver from D-Link loaded onto a thumb drive. I followed the prompts and installation went smoothly the first time. No issues at all. The PC is in the basement and I could never get very good signal down there but with this card it's as fast as upstairs - 25Mbps on both machines now.
None, except the installation trick was nice to know about.
Big antennae, good signal, solid installation. Great value.

Driver disc is garbage. Will not complete installation. Had to contact tech support. Known issue with D-Link and this is windows 7. With windows 10 I am told to not even load the drivers. Th OS will find and load them. Not so with 7.
It works but its not plug and play on windows 7. maybe on 10.
