Disappointed in card after upgrade from 802.11b

Anonymous, Newegg
30 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this card to upgrade my HTPC from a Linksys B PCI card to a G PCI card. My old B card wasn't able to handle streaming high def movies without the occasional buffering. I have other G cards on my home network that are able to stream HD media no problem, so I figured this card would do the...
  • Pros: Small form factor
  • Cons: Poor signal performance and throughput at a distance of 30 or so feet. Confusion on the web as to which driver is best.

SLOW

  • 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.

Linksys = Garbage

Anonymous, Newegg
24 February 2010
  • Summary: Linksys, in general, has become a joke despite being purchased by a legitimate company like Cisco. Bad firmwares for nearly every router they make and no driver updates, ever. Think about it, the only good product they make (WRT54GL) is good BECAUSE IT CAN RUN SOMEBODY ELSE'S FIRMWARE.
  • Pros: Works more or less on most versions of windows, and possibly Linux.
  • Cons: DOES NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS 7 64-BIT. Yes, you can use a workaround (which actually works fine), but that is pathetic on the part of Linksys.

  • Summary: cr@p
  • Pros: It works amazing in linux
  • Cons: It does not work amazing in Windows. You can get it to run on win 7 32bit, with the linksys drivers but the signal strength is cr@p. I'm about 5 feet away from my router and have 3/5 bars. Works on win 7 64bit using ralink work around but still there the signal strength is cr@pppy as cr@p.

  • Summary: Sending back for refund
  • Pros: it didnt kill my computer
  • Cons: Beware if you have Win7. Linksys does not have any Win7 drivers for this and to get to work at all you have to spend a considerable amount of time digging for 3rd party solutions. As an added bonus when it does finally work it's extremely slow because of the drivers.

  • Summary: note:did not buy this from newegg.com but will be getting one after the hollidays with my money xD

Win-7 64-Bit = Don't Buy This Card Yet

Shane M., Newegg
14 December 2009
  • Summary: This is really annoying to me and I will probably avoid Linksys in the future (already have with their routers) and will probably use Rosewill. They have Windows 7 64-bit support on most wireless products and had one sitting around.
  • Pros: - Fits snug - Works well when it works.
  • Cons: - Had no standard drivers. - Linksys not supporting drivers - Manufacturer Drivers crash computer most of the time.
