Summary: Netgear adapter is reliable as always. This one is a replacement adapter for my lightning fried onboard connection. I have used netgear adapters in the past for 3 other computers. Never have had any problems and this one is no different. Always quick internet connection right at boot up. Love this brand for all their products.
Summary: Works great. Installed in system with Windows 7. Turned computer off, plugged card into PCI port, disabled the the on-board ethernet port (using the BIOS) that was constantly disconnecting itself, and started the system up. Windows 7 immediately found the drivers automatically without the CD, and was online in 20 seconds. Speed and performance on LAN dramatically improved. Installed with new routers as well, and that made even more difference.
