Product overview

• Backwards compatible and works with signals emitted on 802.11b or 802.11g standards

Special features

What does this network card provide me with?
If your desktop machine doesn’t have the ability to connect wirelessly to your network, then this wireless network card will add that functionality for you. It can provide you with transfer speeds of up to 300Mbps and removes the need to run trailing network cables around the home or office. Using Clear Channel Assessment (CCA) technology, the card detects if a channel is free before sending data, thereby increasing wireless performance.

Multi In Multi Out (MIMO) operation
By allowing the antennas to access multiple signals emitted from the router, you are able to maximise the amount of bandwidth between your desktop computer and wireless router. This improves the range at which you can position your computer away from the router, in addition to giving you an extremely efficient and stable connection that allows you to transfer a large amount of data quickly.

Is this easy to setup?
This network card will slot into the PCI slot on your motherboard and will not work in a PCI-Express (PCIe) slot, so please check your motherboard and it’s documentation first. Then, you can use the supplied CD to install the software and set network settings, including security and wireless connection, easily. You can also connect to your router via the quick security setup (QSS) function or Wi-Fi protected setup (WPS). Simply press the WPS button on your router and use the software to have the two paired, without the fuss of entering your network password.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Straightforward wireless card but really could do with updated software Bought and fitted this today to a Dell desktop. Physical installation of the device is easy. But if you are running Windows 10 it is a bit of a faff. (It's setup disc is Windows 7.) There is a workaround, by finding the setup file in the utility folder on the cd, left clicking and running the troubleshooter to enable the setup.exercise file to be run in Windows 7. It will then run and install drivers, etc. You need to do the same thing on the tp link utility that installs on your desktop screen before you remove it and drop it from start up. If you don't you'll get an irritating error message load each time you reboot the machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont buy if you have windows 8 or 10 Item will not work with windows 8 or 10 so pretty useless in most PCs today. No Windows 10 driver available

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Out of Date Bought this a few weeks ago to use as a backup card for when my Ethernet goes down. It was the only PCI I could find; however was very disappointed that the drivers are incredibly out of date and would not install. Even in compatibility mode on windows 10. I do not recommend this to anyone as it simply does not work with any OS after windows 7.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and effective. While not "plug 'n' play" in the accepted sense, this is very close to it. Simply open the computer and plug into the slot; wind on the antennae and away you go (no drivers to install if running Linux).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job perfectly. Plugged into my pci port, and Windows 8.1pro ran it automatically without any intervention apart from requesting our wireless key. The cd wasn't required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tin of Paint? Does exactly what it says on the tin as I would expect. In other words the Network card works just as was expected.
