For what it's worth the card is : Atheros 9287 / AR9287.
Most of the drivers are fairly good(lin/bsd/win?), however it has some quirks that slow it down. Above average but nothing special.

Bradley, South Africa. 22 March 2017

Great device. Works really well streaming 1080p movies from my plex media server to my roku3. No bufferin ever. Plugged in and it worked in windows 10. No driver installation needed. Would recommend this device to others.

Neil, South Africa. 18 January 2017

Works like a charm, was scared that it would have stability issues but none has been found thus far. I am gaming with this and it has given me no problems

Gareth, South Africa. 2 May 2016

Good value for money. Good signal strength even through walls. Plug and Play and compatible with Windows 10.

Jonnathan, South Africa. 5 December 2016

Easy installation, very good signal. Works perfectly on Windows 10! Great product.

Albertus, South Africa. 29 December 2016

works fine

Ruan, South Africa. 11 April 2016

Probably the most useless piece of computer hardware I've bought from anywhere ever. One of the other reviewers mentions "quirks that slows it down". Well, to put it into perspective, my wifi router is open line of sight 10 meters away from my PC with this wireless card; I have a 10mbps FTTH line. This card slows my throughput (speed) down to a crawl,, I'm talking like between 1 and 2 mbps with 80ms latency. Laptop to test , and I have full speed about 9.8mbps with 20ms latency...

Ryan, South Africa. 9 July 2015

Connected it, turned the computer on, Win 8.1 installed within a minute and I was connected to wireless... better range than my Note 2. Not disappointed.

Peet, South Africa. 27 May 2016

Signal strength not good enough to pick up standard Telkom router in the next room

Nawaaz, South Africa. 19 May 2016

Disappointing signal. Never the less works well and easy installation.

Greg, South Africa. 11 February 2016

Good product, great price. No hassles with cabled networks, this wireless card works well and if your ADSL line goes on the fritz for a while you can share your phone's or tablet's internet connection with your Desktop PC.

Shamren, South Africa. 7 March 2017

Works soon as you plug it in and boot up. No driver installation necessary for Windows 10. Very stable connection to my Mweb router about 8m, 2 rooms away. Good for online gaming and general usage.

Errol, South Africa. 18 August 2016

Works as expected, good signal strength across Windows 10 and Linux, didnt even need to load the driver CD, value for money!
