Very good product that worked well for me.

I will not write a long review of this card but I will let you have some very valuable information that may help.

Do not install drivers from the CD. They are hopelessly out of date. Download them from the Edimax site. This solves 90% of the problems people are having with this card.

There are still bugs with the latest Edimax drivers however. This is because they have not updated their driver package to include the latest chipset drivers from RALINK (who make the actual chip that is used in this card and most other n wireless products)

You can download these drivers from the RALINK website. This will give you the 2.3.2.0 drivers instead of the 2.0.3 drivers on the Edimax site.

There are numerous bug fixes. The daddy of which solves constant freezing on windows vista 64 bit operating systems running 4gb of ram. I have seen many forum users on technology sites with this issue.

You can view full release notes on the drivers before you download them.

It took me several hours of research to find this out, after my system constantly froze. Now I am getting the best out of this fine product.

If you are a typical consumer then download the Edimax drivers.

If you are computer literate, or are using vista 64 with 4gb of ram then investigate RA link for the latest chipset drivers.

Once again, bin the CD and do not be tempted to install the drivers contained thereon - which have significant problems.

If you decide to upgrade to RALINK drivers on the strength of this, then be sure to carefully review the release notes and uninstall the Edimax drivers first - following all prompts on your system. You will also need to re-enter your router key.

Been struggling with a rubbish netgear on vista 64 , changed to this and so far i'm happy. Good speeds and no skipping when updated drivers were installed.

The card itself looks robust and well made. I've bought an Edimax router before and they seem to create good quality products - at least as good as some of the big brands in PC World, etc that you'd pay twice as much for.
Took the advice of one of the other reviewers and downloaded the drivers from the Edimax site rather than use the disk which came with the card. Even when you download the drivers from the net, it's still a fully automated installation, so virtually idiot-proof! Basically, if you've got sufficient knowledge to be looking for a PCI card rather than a USB device, then you'll have no problems getting this to work straight out of the box.
Everything worked immediately and without issue (I'm running Windows XP SP3 on an old home-built PC).
Wish now that I'd made the jump to wireless years ago. Had I known how painless an experience it was going to be, I would have!

this wireless card is great, really easy to install just pop it in your computer and install the cd that comes with it! the card works with both xp and vista as i bought 2 an installed one with xp and one with vista

the wireless card connected no problem to my new bt home hub 2.0, the computer discovered the hub, i entered my network key an was up and running within a few mins.

This card supports the new wireless n technology meaning you get greater coverage and increased speed i get full signal strength and 130mbps speed with my new home hub

overall a great product at a reasonable price!

I bought two of those about 2 months ago for my PCs after upgrading to Vista to replace my Netgear ones as they refused to work with Vista dropping the connection every five minutes.
With the Edimax connection hasn't dropped once so far. Installation easy within 10 minutes and up and running first time!
The three antennae give 100% signal compared to Netgear's 70%. It also supports the new 'N' technology when used with 'N' technology router and super fast broadband.
Did I mention that it is almost half the price compared to Netgear?

Card is ok when it isn't crashing my computer.. under Windows 7 64-bit it randomly freezes my system and even bluescreens it sometimes. Tried edimax original & latest drivers, windows updates own driver, ralink latest chipset driver.. all do the same :( shame.

Edimax EW-7728In 802.11n PCI WiFi Card

The card installed easily although the three aerials do get in the way a bit. Vista found it and installed it with no problems. The provided software set it up with just the addition of my WPA key, brilliant. It works great with my BT Home Hub 2, better signal and no dropped connection. The only downside was that I couldn't get it to work with Linux, but that was no problem, I uninstalled Linux. Highly recommended.

Update.
I've now been using this card since Dec 2008 with no problems. It has been used in 3 computers running XP, Vista 32 bit and Win 7 64 bit with no problems. It even worked with a trial copy of windows 8 (beta). I currently have my computer hooked up to a Home Hub 3 using an ethernet cable, and this card is producing performance figures virtually the same at 30 Mbps.
