Won't connect at Wireless N speeds
This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-703PI N150 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n 32bit PCI 2.1 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2
Pros: Connects at wireless G speed of 54mbps. Relatively easy to install and update software drivers and utility. Minimal footprint, would work nicely in HTPC.
Cons: Absolutely refuses to connect to router at Wireless N speeds. When router is set to Wireless N only, refuses to pick up the SSID of the router and everything is blanked out. Contacted TrendNet support, never emailed me back. I tried using the supplied utility and uninstalling the utility and letting windows manage the connection; same result either way.
Other Thoughts: I believe this card uses a Ralink RT5360 . I am going to stick with Atheros based chipsets because they seem to be superior. If you need a cheap Wireless G card for a PCI slot, this would work.
