Summary: If your laptop still has PCMICA and you need a wireless card that can really come through, then look no farther than this card.
Pros: I got this to use on my laptop up at university and the range is amazing, i was getting 4 or 5 bars on networks that i only got 1 bar on vs internal, plus i was able to connect to networks i didnt know were there before.
Cons: Dated...PCMICA whereas most all new laptops are ExpreessCard, a non compatible, faster interface.
Summary: Check buffalo's site for potentially updated drivers (I didn't check the included disc, I never use the included discs...). I wonder if the negs given to buffalo products come from the competition!
Summary: I thought I researched this purchase well, but this card and the company support are horrible! This is the first BAD review I have written!
Pros: I don't have any other than the fact that i can return it.
Cons: does not install per quick install booklet. Installed almost by itself. Will not connect to router. Buffalotech.com website is unreachable as is there "customer support". No wonder it is free, you cannot talk to anyone. Called at Midnight central time, 30 minutes waiting, still no one to talk to.
Summary: I really recommend this product, it was soo easy and fast to install and is easy to use and great for wardriving!
Pros: I saw at least a 30 percent increase in signal strength in the same area, then with my other wireless G card, it has an antenna port which is great if u want to get a directional antenna like the canantenna and get even further away from your router
Cons: the Card does stick out a bit, but considering it gets a better siginal its worth it, just make sure to take it out before u put it in a bag!
