Product Reviews
TP-LINK TL-WN851ND - network adapter is rated 1.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from TP Link Review Hello there, I've been using this since April now. Everytime I'm trying to download something heavy like a 11 GB Game the TP Link always shuts off. Sure, it does work most of the time but then there are times that it just likes to randomly disconnect while playing a game. Even when I try to upload a video and such. This product is pretty bad in my opinion and would say that it is a waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not compatable with Windows 10 Just purchased this and after reading the instruction, says it is compatable with Windows XP. I'm running Windows 10 & will not install. Waste of money. Goes in trash can.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE I think that update the controller should be necesary, more when W10 come to the PCs and at the box you can see how it is compatible with W8. If you do a new controller it will be a three or four stars product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works with windows 10 Not sure why there are reviews saying won't work with windows 10 I'm writing this review on a pc connected wirelessly with this adapter running windows 10 64 bit and have had this configuration running for a year now with no problems This is not the most expensive adapter out there but if does the job with good speed for the price I'm Happy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What now? Hallo, Instead of sending single emails, can't you just provide a wholesome solution to Win 10 users (which in this time is almost everyone) with this adapter. For months now I cannot access WiFi. Simply give a solution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not compoatible with Windows 10 Drivers are for windows 7, you can install it on win 10 with some compatibility shenanigans, but then windows puts back it's version and then you're back to constant windows freezes and crashes. Just throw away the card.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not windows 10 compatible Couldn't even use the card after I bought it because the last driver was from 2011. 6 years out of date. The old driver even said it couldn't be installed on windows 10.
