I guess I got a bad one

w m., Newegg
9 August 2009
  • Summary: Win some, lose some
  • Pros: It hasn't exploded
  • Cons: I got it to hook up once to my Linksys router, but at extremely low speed. Downloaded the new driver- nothing. Oh, it can see the router, and shows max signal strength, but does not hook up. Same with Windows drivers.

Very Pleased

Jeremy H., Newegg
7 June 2009
  • Summary: This was definitely a good find for me. I think anyone that wants a cheap full featured card should give this a shot.
  • Pros: The speed of the connection is great and the time to setup was minimal. The card looks and functions as a new card with no visible blemishes. Linksys has had some hits and misses but this was definitely a hit. I am using this on a Wireless G system so can't comment on the Wireless N capability bu...
  • Cons: The linksys software package is useless. Your better off just pointing the "New hardware found" to the cd for the drivers. I ended up having to uninstall the linksys utility and use the windows wireless manager.

worthless

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: used ONE DAY! now reinstalled and will not get power. 3 year warranty is a JOKE. unless linksys reads this and sends me a new one I will not but their product again.
  • Pros: looks good

Excellent WPC300N-RM

Wei Q., Newegg
30 April 2009
  • Summary: The regular version vs. the recertified of the same model is more than 4 times as much. I am glad I got this one.
  • Pros: I was looking for the WPA2 suport for my 5-year old laptop. This model fits the bill. Thanks to previous reviews, I did not bother to run the CD. I went to Linksys's website and download the only driver version 4.150.31.0. The driver may be 2 years old, it works perfectly. Setup was easy. Just fo...

Wireless Adaptor

Steven P., Newegg
28 April 2009
  • Summary: but who uses the disc drivers anyway? and to answer a previous question, Why dont they send the updated ones? It would be a waste of their time and money to update every disc when the simple alternative is going to the website.
  • Pros: Great, does what I want.
  • Cons: none, just disc drivers

Somewhat disappointing

Sean L., Newegg
31 March 2009
  • Summary: The lack of updated drivers on the linksys website and lack of installable drivers on the CD was irritating, and I was very disappointed to see it connect slower than the 5 year old 802.11G card that came with my old laptop.
  • Pros: It works and it was cheap.
  • Cons: The drivers are very old (dated 2007), linksys/cisco does not have windows 7 drivers. Windows 7 beta has generic broadcom wireless N drivers that work, but you'd think linksys would support a device that is still being marketed as new (this is refurb, but there are plenty of new ones for sale). T...

Took a chance

Justin E., Newegg
9 March 2009
  • Summary: Aside from the setup, i would say take a chance on the recertified if you dont want to pay out the rear for a wireless card but you still want a good connection.
  • Pros: Great connection, i have LINKSYS WRT54G2 router. this is my first wireless setup so i am learning as i go. Bought this becuase the laptop i have was broken when i received it and i wasnt wanting to spend a lot to get it up and running (Dell Latitude C840). slapped this card in and was surfing on ...
  • Cons: I gave it 3 eggs cause the setup wasnt easy, the driver sent my linksys we outdated, xp didnt like the new device and didnt care for the drivers. i went to linksys website (support @ top of screen) entered the model and downloaded the newest drivers, Ver.4.150.31.0. I removed all the old ones tha...

25 February 2009
  • Pros: fast, strong signal strength, good distance, and let's not forget fast. setup the driver on XP and was connected to my linksys N-router within 3 minutes.
  • Cons: unfortunately the antenna sticks out like a sore thumb, but is sturdy.
