It works fair, but, not good enough to the claims....

Summary: 1. Setup was a pain. It's connected to my router, but, got a wrong IP address which seemed to have been known for a while per the website of the manufacturer.(why don't they do something about it!). 2. Technical support is useless. I talked to a couple of folks in Philipines(nothing personal to the country), but, they're just interested in log in collecting my personal information without providing any value-added technical solutions. Typical cheap call center.
Summary: I just purchased a NETGEAR WPN511 RangeMax Wireless PC Card to replace my Linksys Wireless G card. The setup was easy and offers a great on-screen wizard that runs when the card is in use. The speed and coverage are as advertised - faster speed and broader coverage for my home network. I am happily enjoying downloading and streaming video while sitting my backyard, far away from the router. I highly recommend this card to all laptop users.
Summary: I was not getting usable signal in some of the rooms of my house and I could only use my lap top in one corner of my sun room which is were I liked to use my lap top the most. I had tried three other brands of wireless PC cards and they were all about the same. After reading reviews on this product, expecially the one about coverage on a college campus, I decided to order one in a last chance effort to fix my problem before replacing my wireless router with one that...
Summary: I did quite extensive research before decided to purchase this item. Most of my friends/reviews suggested buying from Netgear. I followed the product guide to do the installation. It went very smooth and took less than 10 minutes. It has been up running for almost two months now, very sound product!
Summary: This card is able to receive wireless networks from far distances when other cards are not. I use this on a college campus and I am able to receive solid wireless signals in areas where my friends can barely receive anything. The only recommendation is DO NOT USE THE DRIVER ON THE CD. Download the latest driver from Netgear's website. The CD will cause Windows to crash. Install the driver before inserting the card into your laptop.
