4 out of 5 eggsNice replacement

Pros: No frills wireless card. Bought as a replacement for an acer aspire A150 netbook and it installed with no issues. The driver automatically installed and I was up and running in minutes. It also worked with the wireless switch built into the laptop.

Cons: nothing at the moment. It connected to every wireless network I threw at it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, awesome deal 2.4 and 5ghz with N support

Pros: Like the other user...I bought this to replace the abysmal Broadcom card that came with an Acer 5532. Which was slow at reconnecting after hibernating. This one works great (Intel chipset) and started up with basic Windows 7 drivers immediately.

I paired this up with the linksys E3000 also bought here and I have link speeds around 108-300mbps depending on distance of course. I only use the 5ghz frequency to stay away from the overcrowded 2.4ghz...which is the reason I bought the E3000 and this.

Cons: No complaints..box was HUGE lol...it only came in like a sleeve, but in a box? It would have been easier and probably cheaper to send in some sort of envelope or dvd case.

Other Thoughts: This is just an oem purchase..it has a cd, manual (i didn't open) and the card. It plugged directly into my Acer 5532 (which had a mini) and this is a full length card. Worked perfectly...tested both 2.4ghz and 5ghz with the linksys E3000 flashed with DD-WRT build 14929 (I think)

5 out of 5 eggsZero Fuss

Pros: Faster wireless N, Intel part, no drivers no config nec, it justed worked.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought to replace the Broadcom wireless G card that came in my Del Inspiron mini 9 Netbook that I am running Kubuntu 11.04 on. Del said they did not have such a thing, wanted to sell me a USB adapter which I did not want because I hate junk hanging out of USB ports when its not necissary and you should be able to just unplug the old device under the hood and plug in a new one.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card.

Pros: Bought this to replace the abysmal Broadcom card that came with an Acer netbook. Works great (Intel chipset) and started up with basic Windows 7 drivers immediately. Downloading updated drivers through MS Update was quick and painless.

Cons: Reading some reports, you might have issues with it if your laptop is using a non-Intel chipset but I have this one and an earlier revision working in Intel-based laptops with no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works great in my Dell Inspiron 1500 notebook (Intel 965 chipset). Took 5 minutes to install. Win7 recognized and installed driver - did not need to install updated driver from website or driver/software on CD.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: Needed to upgrade to N so I could run my wireless router at 300mps. Dell upgrade card was $75 plus shipping so this was a bargain.

3 out of 5 eggsProblematic Installation

Pros: Works well once it's rigged properly. Cheap price, timely delivery.

Cons: My Toshiba A135-S4427 running Vista recognized it immediately. All the drivers and utilities installed correctly. But the light on the front edge of my laptop didn't come on. And the ProSet test indicated that the radio signal wasn't turned on. So I was about to return it and I found this at a Toshiba forum.

Pull the plug and battery out so there is no power. Open WiFi panel under your laptop. Unplug antenna cables.Turn card face down (antenna holes down) and cover ONLY pin20 with clear tape.
Insert into laptop. Press down to lock. Plug antenna cables again. Close access panel. Power up. Install Intel 5100 utility so you can switch it on/off from tasktray.
The older laptops that had physical switch used pins 11,13 (top side) for the light when switch was on. Newer laptops only have software switch. The 5100 is getting tricked into seeing the hardware switch as OFF because of "older wiring."

Other Thoughts: Covering "ONLY pin 20 with clear tape" was a real test of my patients, eye sight and steady nerves. But it was worth it to get this card working and have my laptop N wireless capable witout having to use any USB adapters. But these compatibility issues with older laptops and the workarounds should be more widely published. By the way, the light and switch on the front of my laptop still don't function. But as long as the WiFi adapter works, I don't mind.

4 out of 5 eggsnetbook upgrade

Pros: Upgraded an Acer ZG5 netbook. Exact fit and Win XP SP3 picked it up no problem.

Cons: Intel Proset Wireless software is cumbersome. Legacy product out of production. However it does have 802.11a.

Other Thoughts: Cheap enough way to avoid running 802.11g for one user.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter the second time around

Pros: I tried this card again in my D630 after constant Parity Check Blue Screens in my D520. I'm not disappointed.

This card is simply outstanding. It manages 100 mbps on 5Ghz N-band. Considering I live in a VERY high interference area where my other 802.11n adapters get 75mbps max, that's just amazing.

Windows 7 found drivers for it right away.

Cons: Unless you do some hunting & tweaking, its very difficult to get the newest WiFi drivers from intel without that PROset configuration utility.

Other Thoughts: I'm a little disconcerted that this itsy, bitsy card attains *TWICE* the signal strength of my PCI dual-band card on 5ghz...but I guess I'm happy it's so powerful - just wish my other WIFI cards could measure up.

One last thing. Laptops are very proprietary things; check to make sure this card will work with yours first. There's a good chance they wont support all but very specific makes and models.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel 5100 wireless N card

Pros: Love the Intel My wifi technology on the card. Its nice to be able to connect up to eight other devices to my laptop if I want to. Card works as it should and was a replacement for my Intel 3945abg which I thought was failing. Come to find out it was HTC Sync software that was causing ping in the 360 range and dropping packets constantly. checking with HTC to see if they have a newer version of sync otherwise just going to msconfig to disallow it from startup.

Cons: No cons works as it should. I use windows 7 so getting drivers was difficult because I dident have an ethernet cable to dload the drivers from Intels website. I had to tether my phone and do it. Thankfully it was'nt a HTTPS site becuse I have a free version of tether on my android phone which dosent allow secure browsing.

Other Thoughts: I have read other readers having issues installing card on certain laptops. Please folks do some research before you make purchases to be sure what kind hardware may or may not be compatible with your devices. Giving less eggs because the product isnt compatible with your machine is not fair to the manufacturer or people looking at just the eggs to make a decision on buying a product. Do some research.
