5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Linux support, 12 Dec 2010
This review is from: TP-Link TL-WN781ND 150Mbps Wireless PCI Express Adapter + Low Profile Bracket (Personal Computers)
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.

Appreciate your covering the Linux capabilities of this card as I would be buying it for a Linux-only machine.

Thanks for the review - I was wondering about Linux too!

Just a heads up, as of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS this card is no longer being spotted by the Atheros drivers in the ath9k kernel module.

I'm trying to ascertain why, but it just seems the current atheros back port has something wrong with it, so the kernel fails to load the module, and the error can be seen in the syslog when the system comes up.

Unfortunately this leaves you unable to use this card on 14.04 LTS at present.
