No negative issues at all. Installation, drivers (Intel), interaction with hub all perfect. Reception excellent where other simpler products have struggled to get good signal.

this was up and running really fast. wifi was a good strength and all worked out just fine.


last month

Used a tp-link t9e ac1900 card for about 3 years, started getting loads of problems with it. Found out its was not win10 fully compatible, getting 1-2 bars at 50mbps (should be 200) Put this card in didn't even have to download drivers and it worked full signal and 210mbps. Also has Bluetooth with 2 devices. Works with my ds4 controller. It is intel based so all driver download from Windows update or Intel support site. Also has a movable magnetic antenna. It's fantastic.

Most people wanting bluetooth on their desktop would probably buy a USB dongle. MOst people wanting network access would probably use the onboard ethernet port or again use a USB adapter. But this PCI-E card is fantastic because it offers three functions in a single card: 1) WiFi 2) Bluetooth 3) An internal USB slot Why would an internal USB slot be useful? Well you could add a USB memory stick with a boot OS and keep it inside the computer (admittedly quite a niche use). Or you could add something like a Logitech unifying adapter for their mice and keyboards. It would of course be possible to add it outside the case. But the great thing about this device is that all of these can be added with a single card inside the computer out of sight. Lastly... and this is important to many of us, it works seamlessly on Linux.

Excellent range! Note: You will need a spare internal USB header on your motherboard to enable the Bluetooth functionality.

It does work with linux. Use upgraded kernel and firmware. The versions shipped with Debian Stretch are too old.

Great. Provides completely reliable wireless connection; unlike the usb adaptor it has replaced. I haven't tried the Bluetooth yet, but it is showing up on the computer so I suspect it is working fine. Please be aware that you do have to install the drivers for it to work. I love the option to take out the m2 card for use on mini itx boards, or any m2 socket you choose. So, very recommended.

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is to use the bluetooth you need to use the front usb header on the motherboard - and most motherboards only have one. So its a choice between bluetooth or front USB 2.0 until I can get and adaptor for the front USB header... Other than that it works well with Windows 10 and appears to be a stable wifi connection with really good speed


December 2018

Nice WiFi card and it comes with Bluetooth built in so covered the head set and keyboard and mouse we got for the new build


November 2018

Followed the instructions, but never got it working because it lacks driver software for Ubuntu/Linux! Wasted money, I'd recommend to look elsewhere.

Ordered this item from Ccl as it was by far the cheapest retailer with an awesome customer service history. This was purchased to enable me to use an m.2 killer wireless nic in my desktop machine (although the supplied Intel wireless nic is pretty awesome) There are other less well known brands which offer m.2 to pcie but none which could match gigabytes reputation teamed with an Intel wireless nic and also a single aerial which is cabled (most are chubby aerials which screw direct onto the card) Install was a breeze even though I did swap out the supplied m.2 card supplied (which was the matter of removing a screw and unclipping the small aerial connectors) all I then needed to do was plug in the supplied USB cable (for the Bluetooth function of the wireless nic to work) and then install the drivers. Up and running in no time at all at an amazing price. Throughly recommended product (a friend has already purchased one off the back of my recommendation)


August 2018
