Works great with Linux

  • Summary: Bought this for my laptop running Ubuntu 9.10 and it works a treat straight out of the box; no messing and no faffing about with drivers. Good solid connection. Replaces a Belkin adapter which dropped the connection repeatedly (although was fine under XP).

Great service and great product.

Mr. M. Paterson-Brown, Amazon
18 June 2009
  • Summary: Item arrived within two days of ordering. Had tried cheaper PCMCIA cards with lots of problems but this worked straight out of the box. Very easy to install and connects every time @ 108 Mbps. Using on old Dell Inspiron 2500 laptop which only has USB 1.0 so gets round the problem of reduced Mpbs. Using with Netgear DG834GT router. Occasionally drops connection if you leave it for a while but clicking on repair results in normal service.

  • Summary: Used this to connect an aging laptop to my wireless network. It worked really well and connected at a good pace and far exceeds the connection speed of our internal wifi connections.

My worst purchase yet

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 April 2009
  • Summary: Despite accessing the updated drivers online and repeatedly retrying the set up process this network card will not work on my computer with the security on, therefore what use is it? The computer blue screens repeatedly and Netgear do not appear to have made any attepts to fix the known issues with the driver and their support is non-existent.

Its not bad, not good either

V. Sundaraanantham "V", Amazon
24 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement to my laptops internal wireless breaking down on me. It isnt really anything amazing, howeverit seems to speed up over time. For the first 15 mins it takes ages for a web page to load, but thereafter, its lighting. That can be an issue for some. So bear that in mind when purchasng this item.
