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

K. Perry, Amazon

  • 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: I bought this WI-FI card to use on my notebook computer and when I had troubles with the card. I called the company and when I was unable to submit a serial number (there was a blank space where the serial number was supposed to be) they told me then it was reconditioned.

  • Summary: My laptop's internal wireless adaptor broke. I ordered this one not expecting much because it was so cheap. But I was wrong, it was easy to set up and use. So far so good.

Not for IBM thinkpads

Beav, Amazon
12 February 2007
  • Summary: I found out that this card is incompatible with IBM thinkpads. They will not run on IBM's thinkpads. See Netgear's website regarding this issue. Their solution did not fix the problem.

Excellent Wi-Fi

Phillip Meyer, Amazon

  • Summary: Replaced an old Wi-Fi card which could hardly get a signal 50feet away! Installation ease was first class. The "wizard" is superb and the performance excellent.

Doesn't work

8 November 2006
  • Summary: This product is a "refurbished" item that came with nothing but the card itself. After installing the latest drivers from the internet, the card still wouldn't recognize any wireless networks eventhough I know that my wireless router is available and works with my old 802.11.b adapter.

Wireless PC Card

Overstock
21 October 2006
  • Summary: The product shipped in a timely manner. There was no driver or instructions included with the item, except for a small piece of paper, which said to go online to download the driver. If I was able to go online, why would I buy a wireless PC card for my laptop?

I should have known

17 October 2006
  • Summary: Today lacks two days until I ordered this reconditioned piece of whatever it is 60 days ago. It gave out this weekend. Just died. Why only 30 day warranty? Because they know it will give out soon after.
