1.0 out of 5 stars Bad product, 9 Mar 2012
I bought this on the basis of quite a few five star reviews. When I plugged it in it did work but changing channels was unacceptably shoddy - theres about a one second nasty glitch every time you change channel. That makes it a 2 star product straight away in my book. It worked for a few months and has now died with a 'no signal' message so its now a 1 star product. I don't know how people can give it 5 stars with that horrible glitchiness. Rubbish product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy, 10 Jan 2012
I finally got sick of wireless connection problems having bought an absolutely dreadful Edimax card PCI card. Have had so many annoyances with wireless that I thought I'd give a pair of these ago. I was worried that this purchase would make me even more angry if/when it didn't work. Needn't have worried. Plugged them in, connected the cables, pressed pair on both (took 2 mins) - instant, solid internet connection. Only been running a few weeks but so far no problems at all. A great product.

1.0 out of 5 stars angry, 29 Dec 2011
I installed this card after my last one died. Firstly it could not even get a signal from my wireless router - I had to move the router much nearer to even have a chance. I then tried to follow the advice of J Hayes below but it seemed that the drivers on the CD were already the latest (I'm using Windows 7). Next problem was that I could not get it to auto connect on boot so I have to type in my key every time I start my PC. Grrr. Next, the connection is not always reliable, even with the router much nearer. Finally, and very annoyingly I have been getting occasional blue screens since installing this card. Really fed up and angry with this card.
