Ehhhh

Worked just fine on Windows 7......not so much on Windows 10. It comes with a drivers CD and if you load it.....the computer, in this case an HP 600, does not see the card. Installing the driver with or without the card being installed doesn't work either. Downloading the driver from this website doesn't work. Truth of the matter, the older 300 mbps cards load right up in Windows 10.
