1. Install card (the easy part!)
2. Download Windows 10 driver from TP-link site (under Support, Archer T9E, Windows 10 driver) -- this is a zipped file and unpacks to a SETUP application file. You run it and it says the driver is installed --- but really nothing happens, DM says there is no driver... Why? Because you MUST DISABLE the existing Network Interface Device first! Once you do this (then reboot) the Setup runs perfectly and all is well. Root Cause: What happens on Windows 10 system is that the new NIC is created as a Network Controller device, not under NETWORK ADAPTER as is should be (note, it didn't do this on my Windows 7 system). Once the existing adapter was disabled, Windows 10 created the new NIC card under Network Adapter and the Setup utility from TP-Link Driver download ran correctly... it took me over an hour to realize this issue, documentation was bare-bones 1-page sheet and didn't say anything about this. More accurate and precise documentation would have avoided this issue and saved me time/frustration. So I knocked off one star for this.
After installing the hardware, I installed the drivers from the included CD and got apparent connection speeds of 885 Mpbs on 5.0 Ghz ac to my AC 3150 router. Apparent is because connectivity to the router was dropped and reestablished every few seconds. Throughput was terrible. I won't go into details of all the fixes I tried.
This is what finally worked:
1. Downloaded the newest Windows 10 driver setup for the AC 1900 from TP-Link.
2. Rebooted the computer and disabled the internal LAN in the BIOS.
3. Rebooted and removed my prior USB wireless device.
4 Uninstalled the prior USB wireless device drivers.
5. Went to device manager and uninstalled, not just disabled, all instances of a LAN device, including the hidden ones. They should be under Network Adapters. Click "View" and "Show Hidden Devices." Removing the hidden ones is critical otherwise the AC 1900 would not work.
6. Rebooted and installed the downloaded Windows 10 drivers.
After this I have stable connections at 885 Mbps on 5.0 Ghz ac from about 50 feet away and through 2 walls. I am getting downloads of 385 Mbps on SpeedTest. This is with a bunch of other stuff connected to the router.
Now I am reasonably impressed, but am taking away 1 star because of the problems with installation.
Once you have the driver installed, everything seems to work fine on Ubuntu. I really wish TP-Link would provide better Linux support.
There is a Windows 10 driver you have to download for it to properly work with Windows 10. You can find it on their support website.
- Easy installation
- Ease of use
- Fast speeds even in older house, with thick walls
- The extra download step for Windows 10. But not an issue. Some say this card doesn't work. But I'm saying it does with that Win10 driver
