Summary: This wireless adapter is slow and trips out frequently. If you try to open more than one tab in a browser window it typically dies. All the laptops on my network are lightning quick no matter their location in the house. This card makes my PC internet slow; it was much faster when the PC was connected directly to the router. Maybe it's because it's refurbished, I dunno. Oh well, at least I did not pay much for it!
Summary: This thing was good while it was new, after maybe 1 year and a half expect this piece of dudung to not work. I'm running an old 2002 computer so may be there is something wrong with the computer causing this card to render it useless but bottom line is there are better ways to connect to the internet than just wireless with this card. Buy if its last resort.
Shoddy drivers and a newer Windows "feature" won't allow card to work properly in Vista or Windows 7 Beta

Summary: If you are looking for a card that works well with Windows XP 32-bit, then this card is for you. However, if you are looking for something that will work with newer Windows OS'es, keep looking. I have been struggling for weeks to get this card to work in Vista 64-bit or Windows 7 properly. I would definitely recommend the MSI card over this one if you are intending to use it in conjunction with Vista or Windows 7 (beta release, or otherwise).
Summary: This card is easy to install and easy to setup. Unfortunately, it has a tendency to drop the connection frequently - sometimes every hour, sometimes every few hours. The connection drop lasts a few seconds. No versions of the drivers available seem to help, and the support forums give the usual useless advice.
Summary: Ever since I bought adapter, I've had problems with it. Oh, it installed fine for me, but that's about it... I predominately use the internet for online gaming, and this adapter just doesn't cut it. No matter how well Linksys says you're connected, you cannot play an online game without ridiculous lag spikes (every 20 seconds or so). Internet browsing on this adapter isn't much better...
Summary: I've had a lot of experience with Linksys products over the last few years and I have always been incredibly disappointed. This product was no different. It did work beautifully out of the box, which was a perk. I had a functional internet connection within 5-10 minutes of popping open my PC. However, after about 1 month of use, it literally just stopped working (no changes in software or hardware during this time). Tech support seemed oblivious to the problem ...
