" ...  With the card on 802.11 AC I can get speeds up to 400-700 Mbps. ... Connected to an 802.11 AX router I've so far gotten up to just under 900 Mbps. ... I have also seen better connection stability to both 802.11 AC and AX routers.  ...  "

" ...  I went from their TL-WN725N USB dongle model to this PCIe card and jumped from an average of 30Mbps downloads speeds to 85ish Mbps. ... As I take a look at my BIOs, the slot shows empty, my internet adapters do no pick up the card, strangely enough though, the Bluetooth still works. ... I'm only able to resolve this issue by opening up my computer, unplugging and plugging back in the card each time I start up the computer, which is very annoying.  ...  "

" ...  I bought this to replace a usb bluetooth adapter I was using on my pc and the difference is night and day. ... I havent test the wifi as much, as I run an ethernet cable directly to my motherboard via ethernet, but if the clarity and range is at least as good as the bluetooth is, then I am satisfied. ... Either way, if you are looking for a quality network adapter for your computer this is a very efficient choice, especially considering the dramatic increase in price for one with even higher specs.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I recently bought my first wireless Bluetooth headphones to use with my older Windows 10 desktop computer, vintage 2013 or so. ... OK, so problem solved -- just buy a Bluetooth 5.0 USB dongle. ... It turns out that PCIe wifi cards like this one have real Bluetooth 5.0. ... This is probably due to the external antennas as well as the Bluetooth upgrade. ... If your computer already has Bluetooth, you need to disable it in Device Manager. ... If you don't, the new Bluetooth on the card won't be turned on properly when your computer starts. ... In my case, I disabled the "Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter" and restarted the computer. ... After this, the new "Intel Wireless Bluetooth" showed as working properly (before that, it showed as not working).  ...  "
