Great card for auditing

Dan N., Newegg
16 September 2011
  • Pros: Great card. I picked it up as I moved away from a laptop and built a PC. It worked wonderfully and the chip was compatible with Wireless Security Auditing. Removable antenna allows for after market upgrades to improve over the basic one, I personally went with a high gain directional antenna and ...
  • Cons: After moving the PC between towns after a long ownership I guess I must have smacked it more than its fair share. The antenna socket ended up becoming detached a bit from the board and had to be re-secured. It worked great afterwards but I'll be upgrading away from this old card anyways and keep ...

I'm rating company performance and integrity, not the product!

Wendy Sue "MysMT", Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: When I received this product and my son went to install it, it turned out, unfortunately, to be defective. This happens occasionally to every company, online or not. I was devastated because I needed it badly for my job. But the wonderful part is the rapid response of the company!

NETGEAR WG311T Super-G Wireless PCI Adapter

Simon, Amazon
29 March 2010
  • Summary: Easy Installation. Work under Windows 7. The reception is little weak in my office, but it is reasonably okay since my router is in the laundry room next to Garage.

Works like a charm

L. Ballard "db", Amazon
17 November 2009
  • Summary: I've had this netgear PCI adapter for at least two years and never had a problem with it. I had one before this that had to be booted about every 4 hours. I won't say which one I had but it started with an "L".

Good card - cruddy software

Jessica D., Newegg
10 November 2008
  • Pros: I have the Netgear WGT624 router, which allows this card to really sing at 108 Mbps. Quick connect time, rare signal drops, and good response in streaming media. This profile and doesn't take much space at all in the case.
  • Cons: The bundled software doesn't allow you to get a hold of JUST the driver for this card. I searched high and low, and resorted to disabling the proprietary software, which is garbage, and let Windows XP wireless zero do the work.

Seriously - Look Elsewhere

Anonymous, Newegg
30 October 2008
  • Summary: One would think same vendor peripheralls would be superior especially when the vendors states which one to use with a brother part. No brainer right? Wrong. NICs just are worth "any money".
  • Pros: If you are connecting within 25 ft and on same floor with either direct open space or only 1 paper wall in between the router and the NIC, then maybe but that really defeats the whole purpose of a "good" wireless. Might as well string cable. That is a very remote maybe by the way.
  • Cons: Wireless NIC should be good for over 25+ feet and at least 2 floor levels. this one fails and so does its Netgear brothers. Do not waste your time with Netgear NICs thinking that the anticipated same vendor compatibility would provide superior performance. No go, nada, zero, ziltch and the list g...

I've been satisfied

Anonymous, Newegg
23 October 2008
  • Summary: I recently switched from my old Linksys 102.11b to a Netgear WPN824v3. Since I got the new router I've had it in auto 108.0 Mbps mode and really notice a difference in speed. Large file download are now appx 2-3 times faster with same ISP (to give an estimate).
  • Pros: I've had this adapter over a year now and I seem to get very good speeds. I didn't have an problems setting it up. Always in 108Mbps mode with Netgear router.
  • Cons: I sometimes have to repair my connection but this is usually only on boot up. The router interface through the browser is fairly slow navigation.

Not bad

Philip V., Newegg
22 August 2008
  • Summary: So, this thing sucks to install. Instructions are vague or sometimes inaccurate or, if you choose not to use the Netgear wireless utility, utterly lacking in any information whatsoever. Once you get it installed it's a great piece of hardware and it hasn't given me any problems at all.
  • Pros: Once you get it installed, works like a charm: no dropped connections, good reception.
  • Cons: Of course, that's once you get it installed. This product is a pain to install. The instructions are overly vague. If you choose to use the Windows wireless configuration utility rather than the Netgear one (and honestly, one is no better than the other) the instructions give you absolutely no......

Great!

Katie R., Amazon
20 August 2008
  • Summary: The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the ordering mess. I bought this originally from amazon.com and then they tried to ship it, but it was returned to the seller for some reason.
