Product Description

Product Description

What This Product Does

TP-LINK's N600 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter, TL-WDN3800 allows you to connect a desktop computer to a wireless network and access a high-speed wireless network connection. Complying with IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n, the device can use the 2.4GHz or 5GHz channels and provide wireless speeds of up to 300Mbps which is ideal for users seeking a highly robust, bandwidth intensive wireless networking experience, particularly with HD video streaming and online gaming.

Dual Band

Dual Band is the latest wireless technology allowing the adapter to connect with a 2.4GHz or 5GHz network. This allows you to check e-mail and browse the Internet using the 2.4GHz band or stream HD movies and other media on the 5GHz band. The advantage of working on the 5GHz band is that, unlike the crowded 2.4GHz 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.

Wireless N Speed up to 300Mbps

Both the adapter's 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands support wireless speed of up to 300Mbps, which is ideal for interruption sensitive applications like HD video streaming.

WPA / WPA2 Encryptions - Advanced Security

WPA/WPA2 encryption standards ensure your wireless connection is safe from intruders.

Easy Operation

TL-WDN3800 comes with a CD utility that helps you complete the software installation and wireless network settings, including security configurations and wireless connection, which makes setting up your network so easy that even for novice users should be up and running in minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Linux support 12 Dec 2010
Style Name:150Mbps Wireless N
I bought this card specifically to be used with Linux since it's the only operating system I use.
I works flawlessly out of the box with Ubuntu 10.10, no configuration needed whatsoever.
After boot clicking the network manager icon will present you the list of available networks.
It can reach N speeds too depending on the signal strength.
The antenna provided can be unscrewed in order to connect a more powerful antenna, which I did, using a TL-ANT2405C.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 30 Aug 2010
By Z
Style Name:150Mbps Wireless N
At first I wasn't sure about the integrity of this wireless card because it was so cheap. I was searching for a wireless card with Windows 7, 64 bit support
and found this, so far I am very impressed. This Atheros AR9285 chipset is very fast receiving the data over my 54mbps wireless network and compatible with Linux too and it only took 3 days to arrive on the super saver;-))
I am very pleased with this item and would recommend you get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 10 Aug 2012
By John R
Style Name:N900 Wireless Dual Band|Verified Purchase
A massive thank-you to TP-Link for this brilliant card and you guys who have already reviewed this product. Let me explain.

A few weeks ago Virgin media sent me a Netgear Superhub to replace my 10-year-old modem and router. I have a PC running Windows XP, SP3.

I connected the aerial and power lead as instructed, switched on and great my PC recognised the new hub instantly. Choose the Virgin media from the available networks list, put in the passphrase and nothing, it would not connect. Tried over and over again but still it would not connect. I phoned Virgin media who were as helpful as having an ice cream kiosk at the North Pole.

In desperation I turned to the internet (with the help of my sons computer) and search for an answer. This led me to this product and the reviews here on Amazon. I purchased the product installed it which took all of 30 seconds, put the disk in to load the drivers and hey presto instant connection..

Strong signal, works well on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz with no drop out. In short it's a brilliant piece of hardware that actually works. No need to say anymore except if you are looking for a new wireless card or have been experiencing problems with connection then this product could be the answer. Thank-you all again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Drivers a let down 9 April 2011
Style Name:150Mbps Wireless N|Verified Purchase
I ordered this card to replace my previous 54mbps card and the improvement has been notable, especially when streaming media around the house. The only problem I received was the drivers out of the box did not work at all well. Initially the card would drop signal, not see any networks etc. I contacted the support team and they directed me to some third party unsigned drivers that resolved this issue. While I was happy to have this problem resolved, if they are aware of the driver problems, why not release a set of official drivers that work?!

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Work Properly 12 Dec 2013
By Oisin
Style Name:150Mbps Wireless N|Verified Purchase
I purchased this card three weeks ago and I only received it today. The card seemed to work for about five minutes and then the connection dropped. After i reconnected it the card worked for another five minutes and then it dropped again and again every few minutes. I will be sending mine back. Don't buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Windows 7 10 Oct 2010
Style Name:150Mbps Wireless N
I bought this product to run on my windows 7 64bit. It comes with all the instructions on how to install it on XP or vista but not windows 7. How ever the driver is readily avaible to download from the TP link website if required. I didnt even require the driver just worked plug and play for me. I advice u to look inside ur PC before buying to see if you have enough room. It was a tight squeeze for me as my graphics card was kinda in the way. Over all im very happy with him product and it picks up the signal from my wireless router very well 2 floor up in my house. One extra point if you have Kaspersky internet security you MUST disable it when installing or you will not be able to use the adaptor; alot of info and guides are avaiable on the TP link website on the topic.

4.0 out of 5 stars It gets the job done
Does the job well but I was nerfed with it. I got 150MBPS and it does about 100 MPBS. Poor range as well but my house has alot of LEAD so I can't actually comment too much there.

5.0 out of 5 stars being only slightly better than my old single antenna TP Link card
I didn't get the reception I had hoped for with this, being only slightly better than my old single antenna TP Link card. But it might be down to my Sky router.
