Linux performance is ideal, and no problems in running on recent kernel at all. Interface seen immediately and easily configured (WPA2).
I've tested range of wireless across large older house (wire/lathe/plaster walls, terrible for wireless) and signal strength remains high. Very nice.
I purchased this product in March 2013, it has been working fine (or so I thought) for several months. Every few weeks, though, I would get a BSOD on Windows 7 64bit, which I didn't immediately relate to this product because of other hardware changes around the same time. Today the blue screen paused/froze and I was able to see the file causing the error (netwsw00.sys). Google search showed this to be the driver for the Centrino wifi adapter. More research showed that this wasn't an uncommon problem, and that older drivers fixed the problem.
This is where things took a turn for the worse. I uninstalled/deleted the current drivers plus the original drivers it fell back on upon reboot. I installed the latest drivers to see if this BSOD problem had been fixed, but although the install went ok, no wireless networks would show up. Intel diagnostics said the card either wasn't installed or it was disabled (despite Device Manager showing it installed fine). I reverted to the disk that came with the card, but same results. That diagnostic said that the wireless adapter wasn't bound to a transport protocol. More research...
A few hints dropped here and there in various forums where this problem cropped up for others said that McAfee or antivirus was interfering. I use ZoneAlarm and didn't suspect it, but took the plunge and uninstalled it, the drivers, and all the Intel wifi software. Reboot, reinstall newest drivers, and presto. Internets galore! Reinstalled Zonealarm, still have Internet. Seems ZoneAlarm (and probably many firewall products) inserts itself between the adapter driver and tcp/ip stack.
Long story short: uninstall your firewall/antivirus if you have problems installing the drivers, reinstall firewall after you have a connection.
P.S. Other than the above this adapter has been working great, it gets the best signal out of any USB wifi adapters I have tried.
I purchased this WIFI card while I was building my newest custom PC. My PC is located in my basement and any normal Laptop/Tablet/Smartphone will pick up 100% connection no issues.
Well the same goes for this... As long as you don't mind waiting here and there to have it re-connect. It seems for some reason after it sits in a sleep state or right when your booting the PC up it will stay off or say "No Internet Connection" even thought all other devices are having no issues.
My build has Windows 7 64bit I have used the CD drive to get the drivers installed, after that I moved my way over to Intel site to download the latest drivers. I'm still have issues but once it gets going and the computer is not sleeping or booting the WIFI card is on 100% of the time fast speeds and no issues.
My one major con is the antenna this thing is HUGE and why is it white!! Mostly every case on the market is black at least give antenna's in the package one white and one black now my case has a huge white blob on the side of it. I have attached pictures of what it looks like.
So after a few months now owning this I found out that a few things...
1. The card/WIFI for some odd reason goes out after bringing the computer out of hibernation
2. I believe I have found a fix for this please see below for fix

The antenna came with a tack you can stick into the wall (drywall). Then hang the antenna on it. The tack has a plastic bracket to hang the antenna. Also comes with double-sided sticky pad to attach it to the desk or maybe wall.
When I first loaded the drivers, I got 144 Mb/s, then dropped to 72 Mb/s. Which is fine, because I am only going to have as fast of data rate as the fastest item in the link: My internet connection. My router is upstairs opposite end of the house behind closed doors in the game room. Still have five bars on the Intel task bar icon.
I would highly recommend this N6205. Intel network cards have always been reliable for me over the years and so far....this one is no different.

Works well. Ubuntu and windows both show greater signal strength than my previous card from a different manufacturer. Ubuntu recognized it right off the installation cd.Published on May 7, 2014 by Timothy Chase
