Summary: I baught 2 of these for computers in the back room.. 1 works good the other quit working after 2 months.. price was cheap so no big loss.. I did not try for refund, I would rather not bother for the price. Personally I would not by this again although the working one works absolutely flaweless.
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: First of all, I am not biased against Linksys, their PCMIA Laptop cards and Wireless G gateway devices (after loading the latest firmware) are top notch, works fine and pretty stable. But this product is unstable at best. Note that my laptop is using Windows 2000 while my desktop is using Windows XP for the WMP54G. - The original driver disk's software crashes instantly upon autorun.
Summary: Be careful when buying this card! On the positive side it worked very well with my old 32-bit PC (especially if you use a linksys router as well). However linksys do not (and apparently never will) provide 64-bit drivers for this card making it useless in windows vista 64-bit and windows 7 64-bit PC's. There are work arounds to get it to work but linksys support ware very unhelpful.
Summary: I have one of these card in a windows XP machine which has never caused me any problems. My entire network is built on Linksys (CISCO) technology, so this was my natural choice when building a 64bit vista ultimate machine. Imagine my surprise that when the box says "upgradeable to vista" it actually means upgradeable to Vista 32 bit O/S's because cisco do not write ANY 64 bit drivers for any of their products.
Excerpt: "...to boot!' because that's what Linksys want you to believe. Trust me, after you've used this wireless card as a solution, you'll go straight back to cabled networking with a curse upon all wireless equipment to ever infiltrate into your abode. Linksys' Wireless-G PCI Card, model number WMP54G, capable of 54Mbps compared to the older 11Mbps of the older wireless network standard, nearly 5x faster. Also compatible with the old standard as well so ...
Pros: Easy to install, it's inside your PC so is nicely hidden !
Cons: Slow, crap range, I can send more data faster on foot
Summary: Hmm... well, thus far my experience hasn't been that great. I ordered these cards for all my boxen in the house, and thought I would start off by connecting my mainbox and my media server (Fluffy). Fluffy and the mainbox are in the same room, only a few feet apart. Installed the cards, configured everything (in ad hoc mode) and everything seemed fine for a while, but to cut a long story short, the cards will only maintain a connection for 10 or 20 minutes before dropping...
