Summary: The product didn't work for my computer so I was going to send it back but no one understood my emails for some odd reasons. So I still have it but I bought a new one that works of a different brand.
Summary: Do not waste your money on this cheap product. I was able to install the card on my laptop and make a connection. But the connection dies almost immediately (within 30 seconds). I was able to open a website (painfully slow) after the connection is established, but by the time I could click on any link on that site, the connection was gone. Then I have only option to reboot my laptop to re-establish the connection, but then the connection dies again within 30 seconds.
Summary: I'll admit I was a little nervous at first, buying this. I have other brands I prefer and so I took a chance. WOW am I glad I did! This wireless card is top of the line in my opinion. It compares in speed and ease of use to my Linksys wifi card and my DLink wifi card. It was less expensive and very easy to install. I would recommend this card to anyone.
Summary: I needed this piece of equipment to upgrade an old centrino laptop (wireless to wireless G. A USB adapter was out of the question because the laptop has only 2 usb slots and one is already used by the mouse and the other is occasionnally used by a usb flash drive. So my only option was a Cardbus card like this one. I obviously noticed immediate improvement in LAN/WAN transfer speeds. This card is very reliable. No disconnects and no glitches after 5 months of use.
Summary: This is a good/cheap wireless upgrade for someone with an 10+ year old basic laptop who just wants to surf anywhere in their home. Offers WPA2 encryptions and other encryption choices. Only issue I had was this card did not like XP SP3 and some its hotfixes with it. If I remember correctly, their lastest driver was dated in 2007 which was before SP3.
Pros: - Very affordable, - Max signal strength at 54Mbps, - WPA2 compatible
Cons: - Feels cheap compared to the similar cards out there that are more expensive
