  • Summary: Functional, as of today after so many years it is still working! I even could install it on a computer running with Linux Debian 7.2.0 and it was immediately recognized even during the installation of Linux.

practically it cannot be used

C, Amazon

  • Summary: It will not stay in the PCI slot. Any vibration of the PC case will disconnect it and make it unusable. If you're lucky you'll "only" need a restart, if not it needs to be plugged out and in again (sometimes repeatedly) to make it work. The wireless signal looked ok for the brief moments when it stayed in contact with the PCI slot. But one will not get to enjoy it for long..

Solved A Problem

H. Clark "Tech Nerd", Amazon
15 June 2007
  • Summary: I needed to work on computers in my basement. This card allows me to plug it into the computer I'm working on and access the internet through my wireless router. It works great and solves my problem. My router is about 60 feet from my work bench in the basement and I get good transfers.

Are you running Vista?

Bud "Ernest Hemingway", Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: I'll bet you aren't if you are using this card. The reason I gave this ** rather than * is that it works great on XP and ME. But try using it with Vista running on a Core 2 Duo system, and the system freezes on bootup. My workaround is to disable the card, start up the system, then re-enable it. Then, it works fine. But one has to remember to disable it every time they intend to shutdown or restart their system.

No Vista Support

Vinnie, Amazon
6 February 2007
  • Summary: 1st Card DOA. Replacement worked ok with Windows XP. No Vista support is unacceptable for a card in this price range. If you plan on going to Vista soon skip this card until(if ever) vista drivers ship.

  • Summary: After quickly scanning the directions, this wireless card was so easy to use!! Just follow the instructions--install the software first, then install the card, start up your computer and you are ready to go!! I was very impressed with the ease at which this product was to install and use.

Easy install...works great

Michael Atchley, Amazon
8 November 2006
  • Summary: I'm using Windows XP Home Edition. I already had the D-Link Extreme G wireless router. Installation was very easy (my experience with this sort of thing is limited to installing a couple of modems and memory modules) and XP recognized and started up the wireless card with no additional effort on my part.
