Excellent Card

Michael S., Newegg

TERRIBLE as of v3

Micah C., Newegg
17 August 2008
  • Pros: I am sure it works great in windows (even vista).
  • Cons: They have changed the chipset so that it no longer works in Linux....at all. The chipset is not even recognized which means that it may be a while before this is supported.

  • Summary: not sure if it was service pack 3 causing errors, but the driver would not automatically install. I went in and manually installed the driver and a compatibility error popped up, which I guess stopped it from automatically installing. I ignored it and everything finally installed fine.
  • Pros: works great once installed
  • Cons: might be hard for some people to figure out how to install if automatic install does not work, it is simple though

NOT LINUX COMPATIBLE AS OF V3

Anonymous, Newegg
26 November 2007
  • Summary: Its unfortunate - not that its neweggs fault - manufacturers have been playing these musical chipset games for some time. I just wish newegg could verify the chipset / device version on the product page.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and use in windows
  • Cons: It is advertised as a linux "plug and play" card using the madwifi-ng drivers. This might have been the case in the past - But I just got my shiny new "version 3" of this card and it is rebadged - linux does not identify the device nor the subsystem id of the card. Tried probing it and it is inco...

  • Summary: I bought it because of the Atheros chipset for Linux support. Great card for the money.
  • Pros: Works great with Ubuntu Feisty. Restricted driver window appears, click OK, and it just works without hassle.
  • Cons: None that I can think of. Maybe because it uses a restricted driver? Doesn't seem to be problematic at all.

Great

Fotini G., Newegg
5 February 2007
  • Summary: I think ill buy another one and use it for an access point, much cheeper than a $xx minipci atheros card.
  • Pros: I have 100% signal strength all over the house with a netgear router. Worked out of the box with Ubuntu/Kubuntu 6.06 and 6.10 (atheros chpiset).
  • Cons: It doesn't bake Pizza?

nice card, linux user beware

Carla S., Newegg
15 January 2007
  • Pros: v2 of this card uses the Atheros chipset. So Linux users will need the MadWiFi drivers. It's a nice wireless chipset, but as always you have to beware of hardware manufacturers playing shuffle-the-chipset without telling you, or making it easy to find out. Mepis, Ubuntu, and other Linux distribut...
  • Cons: Annoying vendors who still don't believe that Linux users buy their stupid products!! grrr
