Summary: This card works VERY well in my old Compaq Armada 1750 (that's right, that's what I said). It gets a very good signal with my Netgear router, and has high signal quality. I ordered this wireless card for my mom, to get her connected to the internet (like she'll use it...).
Summary: I just purchased this card, and had it up and running in about 20 minutes! The package arrived in a Netgear box and was sealed from the factory. Instructions were clear, and easy to understand.
Summary: I bought this card for an old Toshiba laptop (Win98) that I got off of eBay, so I could access the DSL at home and school. I bought this card because 1)it was cheap and 2)it did not stick out of the laptop very far, which I hate about most PCMCIA wireless cards.
Summary: I've had this card for almost 4 months. I use it on T-Mobile's WiFi service at Starbucks etc. It is excellent! I got it for $10.00. You can't beat that price. You'll never use the 11 mbps anyway; 802.11g etc. are overkill inless you work in an office.
Summary: My signal is not consistent and this card drops every 5-10 minutes. My old card was much more consistent - I upgraded to this one for speed but it has caused all kinds of problems for me (including the driver problem mentioned by others here).
Summary: I bought this card and after installing the drivers, Windows XP could not recognize the card. When I talked to Netgear customer support they told me the card was defective and I should return it.
