About TP-Link TL-WN851ND

The TP-Link 300 Mbps Wireless N PCI Adapter allows you to connect a desktop or notebook computer to a wireless network and access a high-speed Internet connection. Compliant with IEEE 802.11n, it provides wireless speeds up to 300 Mbps, which is great for online gaming or video streaming. MIMO (multiple input, multiple output antennas) technology provides stronger signal penetration strength, wider wireless coverage and better performance and stability. The adapter demonstrates an excellent ability to curb data loss over long distances and through obstacles in a small office or a large apartment - even in a steel-and-concrete building. You can easily pick up the wireless network during long-distance connection, where legacy 11g wireless products may not be able to do so.

Clear Channel Assessment (CCA) technology automatically avoids channel conflicts using its clear channel selection feature and fully realizes the advantages of channel binding, greatly enhancing wireless performance. As for security, the adapter provides WPA/WPA2 encryptions that are created by the WI-FI Alliance industry group, promoting interpretability and security for WLAN, more effectively and efficiently protecting the wireless network than a WEP encryption.

The adapter's dual external detachable Omni-directional antennas can be rotated and adjusted in different directions to fit various operation environments and can bring better performance than the internal antenna. Compatible with WI-FI Protected Setup (WPS), this adapter features Quick Security Setup that allows you to almost instantly setup your security. Just press the "QSS" button and you will automatically establish a WPA2 secure connection. This is not only faster than normal security setups, but also more convenient in that you don't need to remember a password. An included CD with utility helps you complete the software installation and wireless network setup.

Questions about this item:

Thomas F  occasionally it cononects at 300 Mbps, but more often at 130 or 144 Mbps. Signal strength is excellent. is there any way to force it to connect at the higher speed?
Andrew R  Unfortunately nothing in the user guide indicates the ability to "lock" or force a specific data rate. Bear in mind that signal strength is not the only bandwidth determiner. Transmission quality, number of users and type of data all contribute.
