Constant disconnects, poor reception

Anonymous, Newegg
5 December 2008
  • Pros: It worked just fine when I first bought it. Got a decent signal and worked with windows wireless zero without any issues.
  • Cons: After a month or so, the card suddenly began getting poor reception and while close to the wireless router, the signal is on at times and off other times. I tried all the different channels on the router and increasing the broadcast power to no avail. After reading the reviews on here about the c...

  • Summary: I can't recommend installing the software package but found it better to go get the latest Ralink driver and set it up using the "have disk" option. Use Windows wireless zero to make and manage the connection.
  • Pros: Inexpensive and functional. Good for older laptops.
  • Cons: None really but I wouldn't use the software package that comes with it.

WOW

  • Pros: Awsume little card, I bought a ***** pcmcia wifi card, constantly over heated and constant disconnects. It was a few $$ cheaper but trust me, get This Asus, it has good range, and worth the money if you dont have an internal wifi.
  • Cons: I didn't buy it first.

Great card, worthless bundled utility

Anonymous, Newegg
8 July 2008
  • Summary: Bottom line: get this if you're in the market for a solid b/g card that won't break your budget, but avoid the utility on the CD
  • Pros: Great coverage, great speeds, quick installation. Once the card has connected to the router, it hasn't dropped out -- not once. Installation is painless: Pop the card in, let the New Hardware Dialog come up, and point it to the included CD to find the driver. Alternatively, google Ralink RT2500 d...
  • Cons: The bundled Asus utility on the CD is horrible, do NOT even install it. It definitely caused way more trouble than you would expect from a wireless networking card. When using the Asus utility with my router and WEP security, the connection would drop out every 3-5 minutes (at the most), and woul...

  • Pros: works with linux!
  • Cons: very poor reception. Even when in the same room as the wireless router it only get 60some percent signal. This could be due to faulty software I guess but who knows. It seems MUCH slower than other cards I have used.

Not too good

Ramzi H., Newegg
22 June 2008
  • Summary: When i first bought the card i thought it was a good deal, but now i realize that Asus is not a networking company, so if you want a card to lasts go with Linksys or similar known products. good luck
  • Pros: It had a life of about 3 month
  • Cons: it cuts on me almost every 2 to 3 minutes. It's annoying as hell, when I'm watching videos or listening to music on my home network (desktop hard-drive) it cuts off. That is a huge con.

A Good Buy

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: If you got the product and it did not work then something went wrong during shipping. Perhaps some people should take that into consideration when rating a product.
  • Pros: This is a reasonably priced wireless card and it works very well.
  • Cons: None.
