For those who do not know, Realtek is notorious for offloading portions of their hardware functionality to the CPU. Effectively, most Realtek NICs (Network Interface Cards) are software-based, providing only the minimum hardware necessary to establish a physical layer connection. The CPU winds up performing tasks (i.e. data link layer and network layer), that many higher quality NICs handle using dedicated hardware.

I opted to include this NIC in my high-end gaming machine because I have CPU cycles to spare; at stock clock rates the reliability and performance is perfect. One interesting caveat I discovered was that if I underclock my system to use silent passive cooling, the software-based nature of this device results in extremely flaky connection reliability and performance. My built-in hardware-accelerated Intel EEPRO Gigabit WIRED Ethernet controller works fine regardless how I clock the system, but of course it requires tethering the machine to an ethernet cable...

I can definitely confirm connection quality correlates strongly with the system's CPU, since the CPU ultimately performs the majority of this NIC's responsibilities. Consequently, this NIC may be a poor choice for low-powered systems, or specialty configurations (i.e. my abovementioned attempt to utilize passive cooling). For this reason, I can only give 4 out of 5 stars -- the price is right, but if you do not know what you are getting yourself into ahead of time, you may experience poor connection quality.

Purchased one of these cards for a computer build for one of my customers. Paired it with an Asus P8H61-I B3 Revision motherboard. I ran across an odd issue where the system would not post or boot. Tried the RAM, tried re-seating CPU, removed motherboard from case and ran on cardboard even... The motherboard worked with everything stripped down. As I started to put the system back together, piece by piece, I tested the system to make sure it continued to POST. Once I got to this Asus PCE-N15, the system would not POST or respond. It locks the entire system up, and can be proven as you cannot simply press the power button 1 time to turn it off. The power button has to be held down for 8-10 seconds to shut it down. This is typical if your system does not have a CPU, RAM or Video Card (or they aren't able to work with one another). This is not simply the motherboard detecting PCI-E activity and changing the default video to PCI-E. As soon as this wireless card is removed, everything boots fine. It was being placed in a 16x PCI-E slot which is completely compatible with 1x slots. I have tested this 16x slot with a PCI-E video card and it works completely fine.

I would highly recommend staying away from this wireless card as it looks like even other Asus products don't play nice with it. This is in fact the first Asus product I've ever had to write a complete fail or bad review about. I don't believe this to be a fault unit, its simply a faulty design as I found other users who had the same issue with the PCE-N10 and PCE-N15 cards.

Another user with a similar issue, locking up Windows before it start or can even be installed.

My first thoughts on pulling this from the box was how small it was. But it quickly slipped into my Dell XPS Studio which is running Windows 7 x64 Professional. I screwed in the two antennae onto the back, closed the cover and booted. First off I noticed it didn't have native drivers and drivers weren't found on the Windows website. No problem. I installed from the included CD-ROM and it was recognized. Quick and easy configuration. Software found my wireless router (A Motorola ActionTek from Verizon FIOS). I entered the key and I had internet. Everything seemed good. Then I started quickly noticing problems. If the machine slept, the entire card went offline. I checked settings and it was set to not sleep wireless. Then I also noticed it would flake out even when running. I could be sitting there, with an "excellent" connection browsing and other network access and then suddenly, nothing. No internet. No network. Right clicking and trouble shooting on the Windows 7 icon availed nothing. Disabling and and Re-enabling the card in devices did nothing. However, if I rebooted the entire machine, it'd come up fine....for a time...then repeat. After two days of doing all I could, I returned it. I had even gone to ASUS' site and downloaded more up to date drivers -- still the problem recurred. Now, I may just have gotten a bad card but it didn't bode well for me. I won't ever get a card of this model from ASUS again.

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize that our PCE-N15 was not to your expectations. Please note the issues you have experienced may be caused by issues with your computer's BIOS version. We do hope that you choose Asus products again. If you have any further feedback or questions, please contact us.

Best Regards,

I installed this item into a desktop computer that occasionally requires wireless access. The computer and card saw heavy use while setting up my new rig, and has so far performed admirably.

Pros:
-Very low profile, good for airflow. I was able to sandwich this in a PCIe slot above my massive 3-slot GFX card with no problems, other than my fat fingers during the install.
-Connects well and quickly. No required bloatware (which I find important), so you can use windows built in wireless features and not install unnecessary junk. Drivers included on CD or can be downloaded from website.
-Comes with interchangeable short bracket for micro-ATX/low-pro cases.
-Opinions generally state card-style wireless solutions perform better with a lower error rate than USB counterparts, and it keeps USB slots open for other devices.
-Dual antenna
-ASUS

Cons:
-After a crash on my computer unrelated to this device, the device somehow lost connectivity. Had to physically remove card from slot and re-insert, after which it ran perfectly again. I have no real reason to blame this card for these issues however, and haven't experienced a problem since.
