Summary: I'm no expert, and haven't clocked the thing, but the 3 year old computer I bought on craigslist now speaks to my FIOS network, pages pop up immediately, and installation was a snap. Provided it lasts, it's a winner. For under $15 you can't go wrong.
Summary: great price and works fine, however the drivers installation disk that came with it did not work, i had to find the drivers on the internet and download them. no big deal. i am still happy with my purchase and i would recommend it to others.
Summary: I would give this five stars, but it's a pain to get it set up. At first, I installed the software before installing the card; like the instruction says to. After installing the card and booting up my computer, it was recognized. I tried connecting to my wireless router, but could not get it to connect even though it showed all of the wireless networks available.
Summary: It worked right out of the box and was easy to install. Installed it on an older XP machine and it worked just fine. When I tried to upgrade the drivers I had some serious problems that I had to go back and reinstall.
Summary: Install the driver software BEFORE you install this card in a PCI slot. Otherwise, you will search google for answers until you realize (like me) that you must install the software before the card goes into your PC. That said, I initially had some weird hiccups connecting to wireless network at home. My XP/SP3 PC connected to the wireless network but no internet access. Ran the Repair function (Win XP) for the wireless connection and got internet access.
Summary: First try with wireless. sister already had the linksys router. Xp is a little tricky to set-up. had to check and sometimes set a option in XP networking dept. had to set a new network key on router. once up it auto connects at boot-up. would still buy this product for future expanding to more PC's.
Pros: Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Summary: So far it works fine on my 10 year old Dell. I moved the computer to a part of my house that was not hard wired and I was able to access the internetthrough my wireless router with no problem. I had some concern about placing the adapter in the computer since I am not terribly computer savvy but I had no difficulty.
Summary: Ordered from Amazon and shipped super fast - was easy to install didn't even need my hubby's help. We switched providers and didn't want to have to run cords or have new outlet installed where our home pc sits so this was a great fix, adding this equipment to our tower took maybe 20 minutes at best.
