Nice product

Scott Rand, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm writing this review way after I bought this card. Honestly I don't think anyone would ever need one of these any more. So I will simply say that it worked fine for me when I had it, no complaints.

Great internet connection device for older notebook PC's

  • Summary: I bought this device sometime in 2009, on eBay, to the best of my knowledge, for $20. It was used, and I had to download the software/drivers myself. However, it outperformed the wi-fi card that was in my old Dell Latitude D610 by leaps & bounds.

  • Summary: If you make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless card you should have no problems with use of the card in windows XP.
  • Pros: I've used this particular wireless card with windows xp for over a year with no problems. I would recommend this Wireless card for anyone with a laptop.
  • Cons: The card will get warm after extended use.

5 years and still going strong.

Anonymous, Newegg
30 March 2009
  • Summary: I can't say enough good about it. Buy it, you won't be disappointed. I wish I could say the same for Netgear's wireless routers - avoid those things.
  • Pros: I've had this card since sometime in late 2003 or early 2004. This card has outlasted 2 wireless routers and worked in multiple laptops I've used it with. Fast, good signal strength from anywhere in my house going through at least 3-4 walls and all of my kitchen appliances. Does it's job like a c...
  • Cons: It won't die so I can buy something newer and faster, but I've tried that and the newer D-Link card I tried and failed to get working without bogging down the computer got sent back. Not really a con, huh?

Why Bother?

Adonijah R., Newegg
17 November 2008
  • Summary: Don't buy it unless you somehow managed to destroy your integrated wireless.
  • Pros: It comes with a disk?
  • Cons: Provides barely comparable if even that much performance as the standard wireless on an old (and severely beaten up) Toshiba Satellite I picked up in a pawnshop to take to Iraq. Also hideously ugly (vain I know, but the laptop looked better with out it).

User Review

Drew E., Newegg
7 July 2008
  • Pros: It worked out of the box with Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron: I just plugged it in and it connected to my preferred network with absolutely NO configuration at all (I love you Linux, xoxo). It massively extends the range of my laptop's built-in wireless card, which I got in 2005, detecting about 25 netw...
