TP-Link’s 450Mbps Wireless N Dual Band PCI Express Adapter (TL-WDN4800) allows you to connect a desktop computer to a wireless network and access a high-speed wireless network connection. Complying with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, the device can use the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz channels and provide wireless speeds of up to 450Mbps which is ideal for users seeking a highly robust, bandwidth intensive wireless networking experience, particularly with HD video streaming and online gaming. Dual-band is the latest wireless technology allowing the adapter to connect with a 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz network. This allows you to check e-mail and browse the Internet using the 2.4 GHz band or stream HD movies and other media on the 5 GHz band. The advantage of working on the 5 GHz band is that, unlike the crowded 2.4 GHz band shared with microwaves, cordless phones and other wireless networks, it has much less interference and can provide a more stable wireless signal, which is ideal for online gaming and HD video streaming.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid at all costs I can't vouch for it's performance with Windows 8 but I can safely say that (as far as my Win7 x64 computer is concerned) this card is a waste of money. Basically the drivers don't work. In fact none of the various drivers I have tried, whether on the installation disk, on the website or discovered through all the various forums and websites I have searched that have complained about TP-LINK's cards have worked. I have tried a bunch of other tweaks, hacks and what have you, including those tried by the other reviewer and none of them have worked. Normally you can find a compatible driver (for example on the Realtek site) if you know what chipset the card is based on, but even those drivers that supposedly fitted the chipset on which this card is supposedly based were rejected. Maybe if they wait long enough and look hard enough someone else will find a compatible driver. But right now this card is not fit for purpose and has not been assembled with sufficient care and skill. Check out what the forums are saying about TP-LINK's cards generally and avoid this one at all costs.
