Summary: I manage over 50 laptops and once in a while one will end up with a damaged USB port. Since we depend on having these ports working, some remedy is necessary. Rather that spend LOTS of money having the computer repaired, we cover up the ailing port and add this card or one like it to ge the system back in use. It's a great, inexpensive, fix.
Summary: This thing was a life saver. My USB ports decided to die on my Dell laptop. I used this and was able to regain the use of my laptop. The alternative of spending $600 on a new laptop was not a possibility at the time. It was easy to install which is necessary, i would get one if you need the extra USB slots!
Summary: It was installed as per instruction and to a T. It worked for an hour or so, then quit completely. Any additional effort failed to get it going. Item was returned for credit. I bought this based on some positive reviews...obviously I was disappointed. Good luck.
Summary: Digging out an old laptop and putting it to use nowadays can be a frustrating challenge. My ancient Dell I-8200 has two USB 1.1 ports, and even Windows XP makes comments when I plug anything into it ("this device will work faster if connected to a USB 2 port...but you don't have any!"). But the laptop does have two PC card slots so here's the solution!
Summary: The unit came with a CD and was a very easy install on Thinkpad with XP Pro. I need the 2.0 speed for my USB modem on Verizon 4G network. Download speed +14mbs works great. However; I was unable to update my Garmin GPS at the same time the modem was plugged into the Trendnet I had to use the Garmin on the computer 1.0 USB Port.
