Summary: I bought this thing back in '08 and it is still going strong. I have since upgraded to AC level wifi hardware but I use this adapter every now and then, especially when I decide to take my computer (desktop) out to a friends house for gaming.
Summary: This thing has so many driver problems. Constantly Windows 7 would want to update this and if it did it would make it stop working. What a hassle to fix it and I made that mistake more than once.
Summary: Works exactly like the Linksys description. Plugged it in and it found my net and 2 others in the neighborhood. Easy to see when both lights are on show good signal strength. Put the Wireless Receiver in my garage on a computer out there. Bought a 2nd unit for guest when they come to stay with us.
Summary: Works great on my 4-yr-old Sony Vaio running XP Pro with Service Pack 3. No problems at all maintaining connectivity, and the signal strength is great even though the wireless router is upstairs. Our ceilings are very well insulated for sound, but this doesn't affect the signal strength at all. I also like the fact that if I decide to retire my old Sony computer, I can use this adapter with a new computer.
Summary: I got this for only $20 refurbished so its AMAZING for the price. Ive had it for about a year and a half and the only problem i had is when windows 7 first came out, they didnt have drivers. They do now so it works fine with windows 7 64 bit. I dont even use the linksys software it came with, i just use it with windows and got the drivers online. It connects all the way accross my house with full bars! i love it.
Summary: Cisco support is stupid. I told them the fix and they said it doesnt support windows 7, I said: well it doesnt say that explicitly on the site and a lot of people buy this for Win 7 not knowing about the issue, so here's how you fix it when they ask you He replied: but it doesnt support Win7. So I closed the live chat window and went to post it on Cisco home forums where hopefully itll help others, and hopefully help some poeple through here too.
Pros: Works flawlessy on Windows 7 after I fixed it. Looks sleek and nice
Cons: Took 5 hours of troubleshooting and forum searching and cisco support to get no where. After I gave up i found the solution while looking for other n adapters that were jsut as shifty on win 7 64 bit. UPDATE YOUR BIOS!!! Recent fixes in N networking have been implemented in how the bios works, the lastest update to my ASUS mobo bios fixed the issue (with the auto installed windows driver). The update bios probably has to be less than year old to fix the issue, but no ...
Summary: UPS got it to me in a single day, pretty impressive, even for newegg. The antenna's look kind of thin and delicate, I wouldn't say this as a con as it really has no impact on the performance or use of the card, but I would not install the card in the back of the computer, since a bump against the wall might break them.
Pros: The driver cd that came with the card had a nice, simple install app that installed x64 drivers that seem to work great with windows 7, so I didn't have to use the notoriously bad generic windows drivers. Great speed and range, I get an "Excellent" connection almost always, whereas my old card got only low to good. Even if the routers all the way on the other side of the house, I still get a great ping in online games, and great throughput for downloads. The package c...
