Never worked right

Douglas U., Newegg
19 May 2014
  • Summary: Could have been defective, could be because it's XPress, whatever that means. My other Cardbus NIC worked fine, but the dongle broke. At least there's no dongle on this one. I did try it many years later and it still didn't work, even finding drivers that should work, so I'm wont to say that it was...
  • Pros: It fits in the cardbus slot
  • Cons: I tried to get this to run on my P2 laptop, with Win98SE and Win2k and WinNT4 and none of them worked. Maybe it was just a bad card, but I never had the time to return it.

  • Summary: Works with FreeBSD. I use them with pfsense to turn laptops into routers. They work just fine but are only 10/100.

  • Summary: If you need it, get it!
  • Pros: Simple install, just plug it in and install drivers from CD.
  • Cons: Will block other slot if you don't put it in the top slot, but that happens with almost all of these things..

Perfect second Ethernet port

Seth M., Newegg
21 June 2011
  • Summary: I use this with a Dell 5100 laptop on my test bench and it's extremely handy to have a second Ethernet port to attach to devices under program/debug.
  • Pros: Works perfectly. Windows XP recognized it immediately since it's based on a common Reaktel chipset. No issues with hot-plugging. Hard to beat for $20.
  • Cons: None.

Didn't do what I wanted it to do

Lisa S., Newegg
12 March 2011
  • Summary: Be careful if you think this will bring more life to an ancient computer. Buy a Xircom card instead, that worked for me...specifically the CE3B-100BTX. It'd be dumb and unfair to knock eggs off of this product just for it being too modern, so I'm rating it 5 eggs because it worked very fine in a...
  • Pros: Works in a modern enough laptop.
  • Cons: Didn't work for my ancient NEC Versa 2435CD. The card wasn't recognized, turns out it really doesn't support 32-bit cards at all...I think.
