Summary: You really have no other choice for an internal wireless card on a shuttle system (I have no pci slots), but I cannot tell you how much this software annoys me. I couldn't get the Windows utility to control it, even after uninstalling the Shuttle software.
Pros: Took 2 minutes to install, if that. Always get an excellent signal. I am in a 1-bedroom apartment, so the signal doesn't have to go far.
Cons: The software is overly complicated. Specifically: 1) The list of available networks will not display the name of a non-broadcasting network that I have already added. I had to start broadcasting my SSID because there are other non-broadcasting networks around me with strong signals and I didn't k...
Summary: This is to add more info to my previous review. I removed the thin extention cable between the card and antenna, and the signal went up 1~2 bars (out of 5 bars). The thin wire is too lossy for 2.4 GHz.
Summary: The new SS21T case also does not have mounting holes for PN18. Considering it is so expensive, it is definitely a worst buy in my new system. Otherwise, I am happy with the my new XPC (SS21T).
Pros: Maybe external antenna
Cons: 1. The wireless lan utility software does not work (even with the newest version) for XP. I wasted many hours and finally give up. By letting XP (SP2) to handle the connecting, the problem is solved. Using WPA-PSk with TKIP. 2. Range is so so. Not as good as other reviews show. Kind of disappointed.
Summary: GREAT service and fast shipping as always from NewEgg! :)
Pros: Very easy to install, software is easy to install, doesn't use a lot of system resources like some WAP software. Connection seems to be faster/more stable compared to my previous Linksys usb adapter. Easy to install in my Shuttle XPC case. Affordable.
Cons: None that I can think of....can be kinda tricky to install this item after the build is complete, like I did. But that comes with building a small form-factor PC.
Summary: with an easy setup and decent price, shuttle owners will like this product.
Pros: very easy to install (like 5 minutes), these engineers are BRILLIANT! the software is very interesting but my Fritz!WLAN modem did not care for it much so i uninstalled and just used Windows Wireless manager. works fine.
Cons: i think the Shuttle WLAN software was conflicting with the Windows Wireless Mgr.
