4 out of 5 eggsNot a bad buy

Pros: Doesn't drop the signal, holds steady at 54mbps. I have the computer upstairs and the signal is downstairs and I have no complaints...It picked up from 3 flights away when I need it to.

Cons: Doesn't pick up as many signals as my laptop addition card does which is over 2 yrs old.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb

Pros: Why spend high dollars for brand name? I realize my distance from router doesn't exactly test this card, but for what I needed it for, it performs top notch! Was VERY easy to sync up to the router with encryption!!

Cons: None!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: Works fine. I pinged my router 1000 times and had 0 lost packets

Cons: Only works @ 11mbps on usb 1.1. Oh well.

Other Thoughts: Never got hot either. I'm not sure if they've changed something or not. But I don't know why everyone else's got hot.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great! Amazing!

Pros: Increased distance/signal strength. Directional Antenna lets you optimize signal. Great Price compared to other wireless cards.

Cons: Not a one.

Other Thoughts: Bought this card to replace a USB key wireless adapter that kept losing the signal. Router is on 1st floor and computer is on 2nd. Installed the ralink drivers like the other reviewer suggested. Moved the antenna around until the signal was maxed (+20% difference). No more disconnects! Do yourself a favor and buy this.
