Summary: I would like to see instructions on not only how to connect the base PC but detailed instructions on how to connect laptops and other towers to a home network. Needed to make an offshore customer service call to connect. On the plus side...the connection is far better than our old one. Very happy with our upgrade.
Summary: I have used numerous wifi adaptors, I have used NetGear adaptors in the past and they worked really well. For whatever reason I had a terrible experience trying to get this adaptor installed on a Win 7 (64-bit) box. Followed all instructions. Connection would drop, logging in to the machine took forever. WPA2 encryption would not work either. I had to drop down to the lesser level just to be able to somewhat function.
Pros: that I was able to return it
Cons: that i wasted so much time and energy on trying to install this adaptor
Summary: On the box it says it's comaptible with Win. 7, but it didn't specify that it only works with the 32-bit version, and I have the 64-bit. I tried to get it to work using the 64-bit Vista driver as others have, but I sitll couldn't get it to work. I have already returned the item and gotten something else.
Summary: This product claims on the package to work with Windows 7 but does not. Netgear does not even make a driver for this product for Windows 7. After trying for hours to get it to work and checking on the web for drivers I gave up and returned it. False packaging, pull it from the shelves. Buy a brand that is willing to come up with their own drivers and support their products.
Summary: This card works great. I have seen many reviews on this site and others saying that this card does not work with Win 7 64-bit. I will tell you it does. I specifically am running Win7 Ultimate 64-bit. Do not use the Netgear drivers. Install the card and let Windows install the card itself. Windows will identify the card as a Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter. After that, you are good as gold. No reason to give bad ratings to products that work great.
Summary: I bought this when we decided (after the death of our Wireless-G range extender) to switch the house's router up to Wireless-N mode. As far as I could tell, it should have worked, although I was somewhat concerned by the other reviews for this product which cite problems with Windows 7 64-bit. It wasn't Windows 7 that was the problem, as far as I can tell.
