    Not entirely truth but definitely worth changing - this 450MBps is only theory...

    I'm using this card last 2 months I believe and with no problems at all. Card works in any Linux distro as Intel driver is supported by kernel by default. Also power consumption is better as this card needs less then Atheros. I have only good experiences with 5300 and I recommend...

    Ditto on the recommend. I just had a hard time finding an antenna. Found one at: https://www.oxfordtec.com/us/index.html Ordered the 25 mm (10 in) first.... it was to short for where I wanted to place it. Sent it back for the 60 mm (24 in). Hate the extra length but it works great. I'd still like to find a shorter one tho...

    I have exactly the same problem. But I did not find anything shorter. ATM I'm using what I have w/o any future "upgrade" plans - works great as you mentioned...
