Wireless N PCI Express 2.0(x1) Adaptor TL-WN881ND allows you to connect a desktop computer to a wireless network and access high-speed Internet connection. Comply with IEEE 802.11n, they provide wireless speed up to 300Mbps, which is beneficial for the online gaming or even HD video streaming. MIMO (multiple input, multiple output antennas) technology, it shows more excellent abilities of mitigating data loss over long distances and through obstacles in a small office or a large apartment, even in a steel-and-concrete building. Above all, you could easily pick up the wireless network during long-distance connection where legacy 11g products may not! Clear Channel Assessment (CCA) automatically avoids channel conflicts using its clear channel selection feature and fully realizes the advantages of channel binding, greatly enhanced the wireless performance.

TL-WN881ND comes with a CD with utility that helps you complete the software installation and wireless network settings, including security configurations and wireless connection, which is convenient for users, even for novice users.

You could go for NET1531 but we cannot swap the retail version so you must purchase separately

Q: Will this work with an Ubuntu OS?
Answer by Dan on 21st December 2015
TP-Link only list a Windows driver for this card. There may be a third party driver available but this wouldn't be something that we can advise on unfortunately. -Danlevan

Q: Hello, I am looking at purchasing the TP-LINK TL-WN881ND / NET0394, and there appears to be a debate if the item in question comes with a low-profile bracket or not? As a member of CCL said it may not be suitable and then a further response from someone else said it was included. Does this in fact come with the low profile bracket? Regards, Craig
Answer by CCL on 24th June 2013
This does come with a low profile bracket, according to TP Link's website. -Jake

Q: Will this fit into a e machine el1850? If not which one will. Thanks
Answer by CCL on 28th August 2012
You would need a card with a low profile bracket, which this is not listed as coming with. I'd go for NET1450. -Danlevan

Pretty decent wifi card - works straight out of the box. Some issues with clearance of screws when inserting into system (slightly tight fit) but works a dream.

Incredibly cheap. Does the job with a simple driver download. Shame that the PCB board is green and doesn't match my motherboard or GPU board. However the card is very small and not easily see

Gets a great signal - much better than my old usb adapter. Very fiddly to fit though. Good service
