This is a replacement for an earlier and older WiFi card.
My laptop has the older two wire antenna and so the middle antenna connection is left unconnected and it works just fine with that kind of setup.
Windows 7 x64 detected and downloaded the correct driver and it was ready to go in about 30 seconds after power-up.
Laptop is a Lenovo 3000 C200
Edit: Works just fine on Wireless N
Power down(!) the Laptop.
Flip it over, remove two screws and plastic cover to access the wifi card.
Unplug the two old antenna cables.
Remove the old wifi card (pull back the two metal springs, the wifi card will flip up).
Put in the new one (insert in the same angle, then press it down until the metal springs latch).
Connect three(!) antenna cables. Explanation: The hardware implementation of N-(draft) class wifi needs three antenna cables for max performance. I found the third antenna cable (grey) in a plastic pouch near the location of the wifi card. Not all Laptops have a third antenna cable. It depends on what display is installed in your device.
By the way: It doesn't matter in which order you connect the three antenna cables.
At last, use the screws to fix the plastic cap and boot up your Laptop.
In my case, Windows 7 found the driver without connecting to the internet, otherwise you might need to connect your Laptop via an ethernet cable to your router/switch to download the wifi driver before you can use your wifi(!)
The maximum speed was 54 mbps before. Now, with the new wifi card, I can reach over 130 mbps. Well worth the money!
SCENARIO: 4 desktops, 3 laptops, 1 wireless printer, 1 media box, and 1 Android phone sharing one WNDR3700 router. A networked drive directly attached to the router providing storage. Router is 1 floor down, 1 room away from my laptop.
DATA TRANSFER: Average throughput is around 3 MB/s when connecting with the NAS. I have seen as high as 8 MB/s data transfer. I can stream movies from my NAS to my laptop without any problems. I do have ZyXel AV500 powerline adapters providing LAN to a desktop computer in the same room, and the througput of the 4965agn is usually just as good.
SIGNAL QUALITY: The Intel 4965AGN has both 2.4Ghz and 5.0GHz radio bands, which is helpful when the area is mostly saturated with 2.4Ghz wireless devices. Despite my crowded wireless network, I usually get the full 300Mbps data rate signal quality for the 2.4Ghz band. A little less so for the 5.0Ghz band (around 270Mbps at the most) because of the nature of the frequency behavior through walls and obstacles. Sustained connections have been rock solid for me. There have been times where I leave a torrent program running days on end, gobbling up massive bandwith, and no dropped connections to speak of.
Overall, this is ranks as my favorite wireless adapter that I own. Others such as Realtek and Atheros have been good as well, but just not as fast as the Intel controller. Highly recommended.
Sadly, the package I got had a vendor supplied sticker on the outside of the very nice package identifing it as the AGN, but the Intel sticker on the product itself correctly showed it was the AG_ version. Now looking at the mostly stellar reviews it is pretty obvious they are either plants, or most DO get the right thing (I do see at least one, besides me, that didn't). But be aware, and check your product when it arrives.
On the good side, this shows that buying from Amazon does have its benefits, as they promptly issued me an RMA label and, hopefully soon, a refund. No exchanges though, as they are just the middleman.
Great card! If you are sick and tired of Windows, look into getting Ubuntu, it truly does know how to treat your computer! If this WI-FI card is compatible with your computer - GET IT!
