Overall a decent buy, especially considering the low price. It had some connection issues for a while with it bu that appeared to be due to the bundled software, which upon removal has left me with a reasonably quick stable connection. Good buy but don't install the software
I set this up with my new rig and it worked instantly! Not only that but its about 3x faster then what i previously had. Very highly recommended.
Great product easy to install just put in PC and turn it on. Wifi signal full comparing other laptops around 2 bars. Delivery great as always 1 day earlier then expected. But sometimes its problem you don't always know when to expect delivery atleast it wasn't my case now.
absolutely perfect no complaints arrived within the postage time i plugged it into PC and it found my wireless network straight away no set up no discs necessary.
Fitted into a spare PCI slot booted up and it worked from the outset, I just entered my WPA password and away it went, no messing around installing drivers as it was instantly recognised in Windows 8. No performance difference between this and my old hard wired cat5 connection.
Card was very easy to install, plug and play with windows knowing it was there straight away. Little trouble fitting it through my Novatech case but not the cards fault. Card works very well, when it works, which it does nearly all the time with a strong signal in the floor above my router. However every now and again (mostly during gaming) I get this strange fault where my ping rockets and i get massive packet loss, to a degree where I become silent to people in voice chat and disconnect from games, but along with this it causes massive mini stuttering/freezing, with the mouse, key commands, sound, and anything on the screen freezing for half a second and then unfreezing with a loud buzz. This happens constantly to a worsening degree until I disconnect from my network and reconnect which causes an immediate fix. The card reconnects very quickly which is helpful.
It was brilliant when I first got it, fitted nicely, installed correctly, but now the device itself shuts off and stops working, and to get it working again I have to troubleshoot it to work yet again. Wouldn't buy again, would of been good if it worked for more than 2 months...

really not impressed, didn't work, could install all the drivers and everything, but wont connect to the internet, tried to uninstall and reinstaller nothing worked, going for asus next time
By Stuart Deverill
This was a far from easy card to install - physically it was fine, but the driver was less simple with Windows 7 64-bit - I really would have expected better given Win7 has been around for so long. My real gripe, however, is the average 39Mbps (occasionally manages more, but never anywhere near the advertised 300Mbps) connection rate I'm getting with my BT HomeHub 3 - I got better from my old wireless G card - very poor! I would return it but its not worth the cost of the fuel and time.
By Jakob Aungiers
Great price and works straight out of the box.
The card gets a good wireless signal, but at first it would not detect my wi-fi if using the built in Windows 7 network service, so I had to install the horrible bundled software. Once that was installed, it picked up the signal but only after I changed the channel detection settings on the software. All in all, a bit of a pain but it does seem to work OK once configured.

Worked straight out of the box on windows 8 64 bit, replaced my netgear n150 usb adapter and improved performance and reliability massively, signal is the same but no-longer get drops and speed has gone from 200kbps to 2-3Mbps on steam downloads.
rly very disappointed with this card .. for a start it didn't fit correctly in the pci slot (is so simple i have no idea how a manufacturer could cock it up..) .. but my main complaint with this card is even in the SAME ROOM as the wireless router im only getting 3 bars of signal .. when on 2 other pc's as well as mobile devices i have full signal bars when im 2 Flores away from the router ... very bad card .. avoid at all cost!!
I had issues with this card most likely faulty and tech support were at best polite! Make sure you have WLAN services running on PC if it fails to start. Type servises into desktop search bar scroll down to WLAN autoconfig this should be enabled and running. Right click-properties-start up type-automatic
A great wireless card. Works out of the box plugged into one of my PCI slots. Drivers installed automatically, no need to use the disc included. Apart from slightly low signal, I recommend this card.
This is a really poor product it does not fit in a pci properly and it keeps on crashing i will never buy another wireless card from novatech again
Amazing Product! Extremly Fast.....!

It's difficult to tell from the spec whether this is the same model as the "Addon NPW210" I bought from Novatech a few months ago... but if it is avoid it with linux. I spent many hours trying to get it working using Addon and Ralink (chipset) source and it didn't work. There seems to be an incompatability between the Ralink drivers and older hardware running this kernel. I bought another wireless card with a chipset known to work (TP-Link TL-WN851N Wireless N PCI Adapter) and it runs flawlessly. Novatech is an excellent company, but needs to get rid of this product. It did work sort of OK with Windows, hence 2 stars.

Bought this card after my aging G card decided to stop working after a system rebuild, and another N card I bought first failed to work. This one worked straight away, no problems at all and working perfectly.

By Tony (Retford)
As all the other reviewers have said quality product that works well and is easy to set up and install.
Wow - it just works - picked up wireless networks outside the house that my other wireless adapters can''t pick up
Does exactly what it promises for a very reasonable price, despite being well away from my wireless hub.
Fantastic price, fantastic delivery, very easy set-up, works exactly as stated, would purchase same again.
Excellent bit of kit. Simply plugged in and Windows 7 did the rest. Brilliant coverage. A stunning little wireless adapter and I think that you are getting a lot for the price.
Does exactly what it says on the tin.
Easy to install and set up - and boy it enhanced throughput from the web to the desktop! Make sure you have a compatible router - luckily I did!
I''ve disconnected my ethernet cable - this adapter is really fast and my desktop computer flies anywhere in the house.
Being a complete novice i was dreading setting it up but it was so easy a 5 yr old could do it. thank you novatech for being there when i needed you.
