1 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted, limited reliability

Pros: Because it is dual band, it can connect to almost any type of WiFi. Easy to install and setup, works quickly while provide flexibility to how you connect to your WiFi.

Cons: The range is somewhat shorter than the typical, regardless of the WiFi standard you are using. The worst is if you have a sustained high throughput traffic, the card would fail. Initially it just would cause a driver exception and BSoD would be the worst and happened rarely. As the card gets older, the chip would fail, cause a power interruption on the motherboard (think of it as if you pulled the card out while the system is running), so it caused my system to restart immediately. No BSoD, just a power reset due to the card failing on high-ish load.

Other Thoughts: This card does not age well, and likely has a hardware design flaw. Could be heat dissipation issues.

Ever since Cisco took over Linksys, their quality have dropped significantly. Avoid Linksys if you can.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Looks impressive, it's about ten times bigger than the wireless G card I'm upgrading from.

Cons: Can't maintain a connection, and is incredibly slow in any mode. I was upgrading from a very basic and old 802.11g card, but this Linksys is nowhere near good enough to actually use.

Other Thoughts: Trust the negative reviews! It could just be a driver issue, but for now this card is useless to me. I'm on Win7 64 bit. This is the last Linksys product I'm buying.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Worked okay while it lasted.

Cons: Died after about 2 years. I wouldn't have been so upset about this, however it killed 2 PCI slots on my motherboard in the process. The first one after only a couple months of use.

5 out of 5 eggsLinksys WMP600N PCI Wireless Adapter with Dual-Band

Pros: This is the second time I have bought this adapter. Because of its performance and range of reception in my first purchase I went straight to buying a second for another newer computer build.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am setup with a Linksys router and this seemed to be a natural choice of matching manufacturers. If in the future I decide to build another computer this will be my first choice in wireless adapters.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't get it

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: It never worked.

Other Thoughts: This is absurd for how much it is worth. It couldn't pick up the signal from my router when everything else in the same room could. Just buy a USB adapter and call it a day.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst piece of technology I've ever owned.

Pros: Very strong antennae's. Attempted to break them off in a fit of rage and was only able to break one of the two. Also the board itself is more flexible than you would think, but it gives in eventually.

Cons: About as good as picking up a wireless signal as a glitter covered stick. Heat map indicates there is no interference in the room, signal to noise ratios at -75dB, signal strength at an excellent -15dB from the access point. Card is able to pick up flawless RF signal and then decides to juggle send rates and completely lose signal for several seconds every few minutes randomly. Attempted to adjust the access point's beacon interval and signal spread thresholds to help the little card. The card only displayed more borderline autistic behavior with steadily keeping a connection to the signal. It's literally as if the driver scrips for this thing were written by an autistic child who was also tripping on ketamine.

Other Thoughts: The people responsible for this product should be sentenced to 200 hours of community service each and then assigned to nursing homes across america helping deaf elderly woman learn how to use internet explorer.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for creating a Linux WAP/router!

Pros: Automatically detected by the Linux 2.6.37.6 and 3.10.17 kernels. Works perfectly as a Wireless Access Point using hostapd with nl80211 driver and WPA2 security. Supports all 802.11n speeds with 40MHz MIMO, although to avoid interference with the neighbors I'm using 20MHz at 130Mbps. Strong 2.4GHz signal strength. Replaceable RP-SMA antennas allow you to improve your signal strength even more. Can transmit at 30dBm with driver tweak.

Cons: 5GHz signal is very poor with the included antennas. It might be better with a replacement antenna, but since very few of my devices support 5GHz, I decided to just use it in 2.4GHz mode.

Other Thoughts: I got tired of consumer-quality routers needing to be rebooted so often and having limited features, so I made a Linux router and wireless access point. It's a lot more work to configure, but once it's going, it is rock solid and blazing fast. I'm using the JetWay JNF99FL-525-LF motherboard/CPU combo, which is a dual-core Intel Atom with dual gigabit LAN.

1 out of 5 eggscrapped out on me

Pros: Worked for a little under a year. Never seemed like it was slow in anyway.

Cons: it seemed like it was fine till recently, the internet on my computer just dropped to nearly nothing! i was trying to download something, and it was downloading at like.. <100kb/s! not to mention me not being able to open a browser. i thought it was the internet, but after finding out that all the gaming consoles, 3 laptops, and another desktop, all worked with 10mb/s,, i realized it wasnt the internet. Dont get this, too many people are having the same issue. some of them might work, but.. dont take your chances. not when you spend so much money for this EXACT thing not to happen
