5 out of 5 eggsGood Wireless Card

Pros: Great card. I was having problems getting a steady connection with 2 different boards. On one I would have to reconnect as many as 5 and 6 times till I gave up. The second was'nt much better and both had signal strength of about 3. I plugged this card in and Windows recongized it immediately. I am getting 4 and 5 bars on signal strength through a wall about 20 feet from router and in over a year it has never lost signal.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible piece of junk

Pros: When it worked, it worked well. Easy to install.

Cons: It began dropping connection about a month after we got it. The more time that went on, the more often it dropped connection. After about 3 -4 months it wouldn't stay connected more than an hour at a time. In it's last month of life, it wouldn't stay connected 5 minutes at a time. Now it doesn't even entertain the idea of connecting. Huge disappointment.

5 out of 5 eggsLinux Friendly

Pros: Works with Linux natively without ndiswrapper. Have verified with WPA and below- have not tried WPA2, but the adapter supports it, and wpa_supplicant does as well.

Cons: I paid 10 bucks more than on newegg (before shipping) because I needed it ASAP. :(
Depending on the distro you use, you may need to install a package or two. Of course wireless-tools, wpa_supplicant will be needed. See other thoughts...

Other Thoughts: Card has succesfully been used on Ubuntu 7.10 (old!) and Arch Linux kernel version 2.6.30. On Ubuntu 7.10 (kernel 2.6.24), it worked out of the box with no modifications necessary. On Arch linux, the modules were all loaded, however attempting to up the interface (wlan0) resulted in SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory. /var/log/messages.log showed an error in loading the firmware. Installing the firmware/package: rt2x00-rt71w-fw from the core repository immediately fixed the problem.

4 out of 5 eggsworks

Pros: i got this from my ISP and am using it about 50 feet from my D-Link WBR 1310 router in beedroom so it is going through about three walls. I am using it on a e machine. Just a basic pc from W-M ,it is a little slow on that PC. Also using on a PC about 10 feet from router and only one wall and runs great! Was easy to install and set up and ran fine. I had no problems getting online.

Cons: If you are going to be far from your router this may not be the best thing to use.

Other Thoughts: I would not have had this but my ISP is using it now. Like I said if you are far away from router it is slow but not that bad (at least not for me). If it ran faster on the e machine would give it five eggs.

4 out of 5 eggsD-link WUA-1340

Pros: Works just as advertised ... pretty good for a usb adapter.

Cons: Driver problems - see "other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: DO NOT use the drivers/software that comes in the CD or is on D-Link website!!

I had the D-link WUA-1340 for a month now. At first I had some serious problems with it. Right after installing D-links drivers and restarting the computer, the signal would be dropping all the time. But when last weekend I installed Windows 7 RC x64 and let W install the drivers instead of using ones from the website, it worked as a charm. The router is 30 feet away and behind 2 walls. The signal strength is 80% and no drops, thus letting me play fps games online. It easily maintains 10 MB/s and doesn't heat up.

3 out of 5 eggsNot for the gamer

Pros: Alright guys well I just got this last week and first off I'd like to say this is an adapter that gets you on the internet, able to use webcam (msn AIM), doesnt disconnect too often. The extender cable for the usb is VERY long so it can be moved. When I say long its more like about a yard. Software is easy to install kinda.

Cons: I will be returning this adapter for another one tomorrow. This is not the type of adapter that I thought it would be. Installing the software was easy however after restarting the comp the first time , it was kinda hard to get it up and running again. Also sometimes on booting the computer I'd have to disconnect then reconnect the adapter for the computer to recognize the device. Personally I think the user interface of the wireless manager software is ugly, but it is simply to use. Anyways the main problem is that I cannot play online computer games without the game lagging every 30 sec. I have only tested Call of Duty 4 and have not tried World of Warcraft yet. So yup cant pwn when I lag haha

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm giving it 3 eggs cause it does it's main job. It does what it needs to do, internet, webcam, video streaming. JUST NOT GOOD FOR GAMING. Sorry for the long review :P

2 out of 5 eggsDISAPPOINTMENT for Gaming

Pros: The price was decent, can be plugged directly into USB or you can have a small extension.

Cons: Upon reading reviews this device offered GREAT wireless signal, I purchased it.

I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. At 20 feet away from the router, this thing gets 35% signal. I can't play games without getting packet loss.

If you need a cheap usb wi-fi, get this.

If you want to play games, or download, or surf the internet, AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Other Thoughts: This product, while looks nice and appears to be nice, is worthless

Do not expect to get a good signal unless you are physically next to your router....

And we all know that if you are next to your router, you'll be plugging it in...

2 out of 5 eggsSo much for an upgrade

Pros: Easy to set up, worked great for the first month or two.

Cons: Connection started degrading after a while. High latency, sites would load halfway and just stop, connection would sometimes drop off entirely. By now it's so bad that I can't even reliably load most pages. Playing online games is entirely out of the question.

What I don't get is that the connection strength never dropped below three bars, and it always said the quality was very good. I am all of 25 feet from the router with no large obstacles in the way.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as an upgrade from an ancient Netgear wireless dongle that was near death (and which only supported 802.11b). So much for an upgrade. I'm now using internet connection sharing through firewire, using my laptop's wireless connection. And here all along I thought it was Comcast that was at fault - turns out my internet connection is fantastic!
