  • Summary: I have had mine for over a year and it works. Set in wireless N mode my average signal strength is 29-34% at 25' 1 floor and 1 wall away from router. The average link speed using wireless N is 39mbps. When playing games online the connection will drop  frequently.
  • Pros: It was inexpensive at the time of purchase.
  • Cons: Signal strength is low, Link speed is low

  • Summary: I have had this card for about a month now. It didnt meet my expectations of a wireless pci adapter. I am about 15-20 ft away from router and it loses connectivity a lot. Do yourself a favor and dont buy this item unless your gonna set your tower right next to the router or have a signal booster that connects to this adapter.

  • Summary: Was fairly easy to set up, and holds the connection, works well. Range not as far as they say but still get a 65-80 percent on other side of house.., Try to adjust the antennas with the signal strength on.. Recommended...

Great product

  • Summary: As others have pointed out, don't bother with using the included CD it'll install some junk utility. I prefer the Windows utility. If you don't want the TRENDnet utility and would like to use the Windows wireless utility only go to Ralink's website and download the correct RT2860 driver for your OS. Put the card in the PCI slot and install the driver.
  • Pros: Price, I paid less than $22 shipped. I went from 1 or 2 bars to 5 bars all the time. When I ran speed tests with my old Netgear Wireles-G card I got no more than 1Mbps down. I ran a speed test with this card I got 12Mbps down.
  • Cons: None so far.

1 OF THE 2 BEST IN EXISTANCE

MICHAEL A., Newegg
12 November 2010
  • Summary: Think i'll buy another right now
  • Pros: This will keep and hold a solid connection it will keep a steady connection showing 300mb but when i check the true connectoin ratings on my split g and n network i only broadcast at 2.4ghz not 5.8 so server shows anywhere from 146mbs to 182 steady connection .The only 2 cards to ever by is this and the encore " MUST INSTALL WITH A DIFFERENT BRAND DRIVER" Great Hardware needs Great driver and sadly trendnet driver is worthless.
  • Cons: DO Not install the driver that comes with it that driver fails and will dissapoint you must find the " netr28x.inf" DRIVER This is a ralink driver that supports the r2860 wireless card by ralink but this driver will make your trend net card a dream USE ("netr28x.inf for vista & win 7 64 bit)-use- ("rt2860.inf for xp 32 bit")

  • Summary: I have Fortress FB02 and if you place the metal guard above the antenna, the signal disconnects completely. As well, you have to install the included driver on cd BEFORE you plug the card.
  • Pros: three antenna look cool
  • Cons: cumbersome installation, weak signal.

  • Summary: Overall, the signal is quite strong (router to antenna distance is approximately 20m, same floor, through several walls). On average I get signals of approximately 80%. I haven't been able to use the wifi on the desktop however due to the extreme amount of interference that goes on under the desk (limited space, powerbars and wires running everywhere). However, definitely a good buy if you have a clean floor/working area!
  • Pros: Good range, Fast connection
  • Cons: doesn't work with extreme amounts of interference (as with any other wireless antenna)

  • Summary: First of all, I am not a techy (I'm not even sure how to spell it) but this was easy to install and simple to use. For the most part, the software installed itself and the hardware installation was simple. I had never used wireless before, but now I wonder why I waited so long.
