This does the job just fine for casual use.

Summary: This was very easy to set up. I do not notice a significant increase in speed or signal strength with the Belkin N card versus the B/G, but there is a little, and I have no way of knowing to what degree my results are affected by the router versus the card (Belkin does recommend you use a Belkin router and I didn't, but how that affects the result I have no clue).
Summary: This product works beautifully. Increased my notebook PCC wi-fi speed by a factor of about 3X. The notebook internet speed is now comparable to my desktop PC that is Ethernet connected to the router. I don't need the range extension but it's nice to see the reception quality always at "excellent".
Summary: I installed the software using the included CD, then the card, had to manually installed in device manager. Still could not get the card to work. I repeated several times and still could not get the card to work in my Dell D600 so I returned the card. I guess I got a bad one.
Summary: The first one I purchased from an office supply store, I paid $50 in 2008. Then recently I needed one for an older laptop and this was a fraction of the price and it works perfectly with my Belkin N router.
Summary: I bought 3 of this item, we have 3 laptops and ones we get Overdrive from sprint - I considered to get cheap and fast PCMCIA wireless card for everybody to share our wi-fi, first take me 5 minutes, to figure out that only one thing need to be installed from CD with drivers - actually driver, software is useless, I prefer to use Microsoft stuff, since it works better with Overdrive.
Summary: Work perfectly with my Acer Laptop. No complaints with this wireless N card. Wireless N is the way to go for network speed but you will also need a wireless N router to gain the full Wireless N speed.
Summary: I bought this card to replace the built-in wireless in my laptop. I bought the laptop used and one of the issues was WiFi signal strength. I installed the card as instructed and it worked as promised. The only issue I have is that it generates a lot of heat. Even with cooling fans underneath my laptop, the card does cook a bit. It also puts more of a drain on battery power. I suggest plugging in your laptop to conserve battery life.
Summary: Dell laptop (Win XP, IE8) had Netgear RangeMax PCMCIA/CardBus card with wireless /b/g. Bought this Belkin wireless /b/g/n card because of great closeout price (under $9) instead of $60 in the past. Installed software driver from included software CD, connected OK to the router radio signal, but failed to connect to the Internet and froze the computer.
Summary: I bought three of these, and two out of three worked perfectly right out of the box. The third did not, and with the other cards around I was able to test and verify that it was indeed some kind of problem with the card--it wouldn't connect for anything. Given how cheap they were I didn't mind, but if you're having trouble, just keep in mind you might have a bad one (probably why they are so darn cheap!). But the working ones are just great--no problems.
