Summary: I use this for an older laptop without integrated wireless. As it is older I did not want to sink a lot of money into a card. The sale on this made it fairly affordable. It is workable, although I find that it can be difficult to establish open connections sometimes.
Summary: Just installed it in 5 minutes while reading the - get this - MANUAL! They actually send you one! It finished installing itself on my aging Satellite with XP before I even finished the instructions. What a far cry from Linksys. Way better and for less than half the price. HOORAY!
Works great on XP with enough memory. Not so well on 98se

Summary: I had this in my small Windows 98se machine and it always worked w/o problems. So when a friend needed a wireless card quickly for her XP machine I gave her mine and ordered a replacement for myself. When it came, I noticed the box was slightly different but the card itself looked the same. I installed it in my 98se machine and it wanted new drivers! After installing the new drivers, it still would not work!
Summary: The card works great and the installation was a snap. I downloaded the latest drivers from their website (Win XP). My laptop now freezes when it goes into standby...but otherwise it works great.
Summary: I spent 3-4 hours trying to make this card work but it never went beyond 1 Mbps even when I was sitting 1 foot away from the wireless access point. Very disappointing. I have a Thinkpad that runs Win XP Home. I plugged this card in and installed the driver utility from the CD. Everything looked fine and the card seemed to be connecting to the access point but my speed never went over 1 Mbps. I use WEP security in my home network.
Summary: I use this pcmcia card on my HP laptop running windows 2000 Professional and so far it had worked perfectly. It comes with a software that helps you to connect to the wifi network. At home I have a Linksys router but I had used it in other networks too.
Summary: I installed on my laptop with XP. It does not work. Also during the installation I got some kind of warning message indicating me to not install this software. I called technical service. They are very busy so they took my number and they will call back. Having technical service busy is not a good indication. It should be plug and play. I wish I had spent little more money to get a better card.
