This card worked great for 8 years! But it does not support newer WPA2 encryption.

Summary: This NetGear card served me well in my 11 year old XP laptop. I think this card originally came out about 10 years ago, or more. I personally used one of these cards for 8 years. However, since it is old, it does not support the newer WPA2 encryption protocol.
Summary: This unit is easy to install and works well. My only complaint is the unit does not have good range, but other than that it works OK. The price is cheap enough and the performance is decent enough that it is an OK buy.
Summary: Got an older windows xp laptop that had no wireless. I bought this card and it works great. Not crazy that I had to use the netgear software so I will connect because it did not see my security settings correctly otherwise. Also, it hooks up to Ubuntu just fine using Ndi wrapper.
