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. Debian version 6.0.8 could also recognize, but after the installation, which is good too
Summary: Pro: can be used for full or compacted pci slots, comes with both plates, there's a removable card of some kind under the shielding (screwed on) Con: Other then outdated for what I need. Added to the archive closet (never know what you need it)
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.
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.
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.
