comment
" ...  The reception on this is actually really good. ... I mean, I installed the card, but didn't plug in the antennas, and still was able to pick up a pretty decent signal strength from the router (about 75%). ... I don't know if that's just because the router is really strong, or if it's because the card has just a good design, but in either case, I was able to use this without a problem to catch the wifi from the 2nd floor while the router is on the 1st floor.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I get WiFi from a 1 gig router at the other side of the house, so it's a ways away from my adapters. ... However, this beast of a card ALWAYS has full bars and never drops connections.  ...  "

Installation was simple, just a matter of having a spare PCIe slot and plugging this in, then attaching the included Bluetooth connector to my usb 2.0 header. ...
