Summary: I have 12 of these puppies in our network, and I use them with the WAP54A access point. All in all they offer great speed, I typically see the advertised 54 Mbps speed range. The only thing that riles me about the WPC54A is the fact that you will have a hard time making it work with a totally plug...
Summary: These things do not work. I have two of them that I can't get to function in any PC I put them in. I tried them on Windows 98SE, Windows 2000, Windows XP. One of them totally locks up every PC I put them in. I got the other one to work for about 5 minutes and then it has never worked since.
Summary: I bought this WPC54A adapter for use with my Linksys WRT51AB access point under Windows XP but was completely unable to get it to work. It always locked up my Gateway Solo 9550 laptop within 10 seconds of plugging it in.
Summary: I asked my wife to get me this and the dual-band WAP from Linksys for Christmas. Normally I do my homework and research something before I buy it, in this case I didn't and I got burned. I am seeing a lot of the same problems that have been reported here. I have a Toshiba Satellite running XP.
Summary: I spent many hours with Linksys Tech trying resolve be inability to make a connection with this card in my ACER Tablet PC running XP Pro all to no avail. The last time I tried to get some result, it locked up and I got a Stop Error message.
Summary: I've had pretty good luck with other Linksys products in the past, but this thing will drive you insane. I am using a Dell Inspiron 8200 with XP Home Edition and the new Linksys dual band AP. One day it works, the next day it won't...literally. Lots of bluescreens and hangups.
This card ...... and it's not a Linksys issue....or is it?

Summary: I am trying to use this wireless card in a Dell Latitude C810. Big mistake. This card merely causes the system to hard lock up and a reboot is necessary to get it back. Upgrading the BIOS had no effect. Apparently, D-Link is having the same issues with their card based on the same Atheros chipset.
Summary: The card installed properly with the shipped drivers on a Win98SE machine, but file transfers stopped every 6-8 seconds for 1 to 2 seconds. Just enough to sometimes disconnect the remote machine. New drivers on Linksys Web page (1.04.00.39) fixed the problem, but disabled Turbo Mode.
