4 out of 5 eggshahah! It Works on Win7 with 64 bit!!!

Pros: Works flawlessy on Windows 7 after I fixed it. Looks sleek and nice

Cons: Took 5 hours of troubleshooting and forum searching and cisco support to get no where.

After I gave up i found the solution while looking for other n adapters that were jsut as shifty on win 7 64 bit.


Recent fixes in N networking have been implemented in how the bios works, the lastest update to my ASUS mobo bios fixed the issue (with the auto installed windows driver).

The update bios probably has to be less than year old to fix the issue, but no harm in updating bios anyway, make sure u do it properly and according to motherboard instructions

Other Thoughts: Cisco support is stupid. I told them the fix and they said it doesnt support windows 7,

I said: well it doesnt say that explicitly on the site and a lot of people buy this for Win 7 not knowing about the issue, so here's how you fix it when they ask you

He replied: but it doesnt support Win7.

So I closed the live chat window and went to post it on Cisco home forums where hopefully itll help others, and hopefully help some poeple through here too.

Yay now i dont need to spend half of what i paid for it to return it to newegg (restock fee +handling +shipping lol)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, no problems with Windows 7 x64.

Pros: The driver cd that came with the card had a nice, simple install app that installed x64 drivers that seem to work great with windows 7, so I didn't have to use the notoriously bad generic windows drivers.

Great speed and range, I get an "Excellent" connection almost always, whereas my old card got only low to good. Even if the routers all the way on the other side of the house, I still get a great ping in online games, and great throughput for downloads.

The package came with a driver cd, a USB extension cable attached to a base/stand (keeps it upright) and just an extension cable, though why you wouldn't use the handy base is beyond me.

Lots of settings in the adapter settings page, for stuff like the preamble, Ad Hoc wifi mode, whether you want to use frame aggregation (increases data throughput on N networks through cutting unneeded ACK frames out of transmission and combining into single frames)

Cons: None that I can find.

Other Thoughts: UPS got it to me in a single day, pretty impressive, even for newegg.

The antenna's look kind of thin and delicate, I wouldn't say this as a con as it really has no impact on the performance or use of the card, but I would not install the card in the back of the computer, since a bump against the wall might break them.

5 out of 5 eggsWireless N

Pros: Looks Great, has a great throughput bundled with nice accessories and has nice little antennas :D
Used with a WRT300N V1 works great

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice to see the signal strength on the device itself rather using the software monitor

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great adapter, especially when you take the price into account. I've installed three of these in different situations and have had no issues. Connectivity is as good as or better than other adapters I've tried, especially at the 300' range.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the money.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy setup in Windows XP, good connection, no issues with connection dropping

Cons: Was unsuccessful in getting it to work with Ubuntu. That may be more of an issue with me being unfamiliar with Linux in general, as well as not being very tech savvy.

There also seems to be some issues with Linksys Wireless Network Monitor and Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration utility. If I choose to use the latter rather than the former, I get disconnected. Not sure why.

Other Thoughts: Has more than doubled in price since I bought it a month ago, though I can't remember if I bought it on sale or not.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: --Great range
--Great connectivity-won't cut out on you
--Doesn't get too hot
--Sleek look
--Comes with extender and stand
--Great for gaming
--Who couldn't forget Newegg's insanely speedy shipping?

Other Thoughts: I have a three out of five bar connection, going through three walls and some wireless electronics. Not bad. Not bad at all.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works a lot better than installing one in the computer I must say. Even though it aint the best it does get the job done. I am able to surf the net wirelessly with few interruptions.

Cons: N/A

3 out of 5 eggsDied on me

Pros: Was a good price and great speed when it was working

Cons: Had to disconnect myself from my wireless network every so often because the connection would slow which seemed like the bandwidth was being choked out.
Seemed to run hot
Made more noise than any other wireless device i have used in the past

Other Thoughts: It wasn't much of a hassle having to disconnect and reconnect every once in a while but the other day after only a few months of having it, it just died on me. I thought it may have been my computer or one of the connectors but i just plugged in a different wireless device to the same adapter and it worked just fine. When i plug it in the power light comes on but my computer does not recognize any device or wireless networks.
This has nothing to do with Newegg, it came in tact in the package, arrived in about 2 days (with free shipping) and everything was great with them as usual.

5 out of 5 eggsDRAFT 1.0 and win7 ready

Pros: Looks funny, a lot smaller than what the pictures look-like, and no annoying spam software! WORKS WITH WIN 7!

Cons: This little thing feels a little cheap, and gets very hot quickly had it on for about 30 minutes and it got warm to the touch didn't get much hotter than that though. Only IEEE 802.11n Draft 1.0 not 2.0 be careful before you buy this without knowing so.

Other Thoughts: I used the vista drivers (supplied on the disc) for the device and it worked fine! Tried on another computer only using the windows updates for plug and play and it didn't stay connected.

2 out of 5 eggsbuggy windows 7 drivers

Pros: works great compared to other wireless N adapters drivers. Tests using iperf indicate good performance.

Cons: does not work with windows 7 64 bit well. Latest driver crashes frequently or unable when transmit data to the wireless N router WRT300N sustainable,
