4 out of 5 eggsGood Buy

Pros: I've had this little card for 3 years and it has performed admirably until recently. The antennae was easy to place on my desk to get the best LOS to the router. All version of Ubuntu for the past 3 years recognized this card as RT61pci

Cons: Recently it has started dropping packets. Even DMESG has been complaining about it. Transfer times are erratic and some downloads are even missing chunks.

It's 3 years old and I've used the bajeezus out of it, but it seems that this gem is finally in need of replacement.

Other Thoughts: Don't use the included software in windows, it's rather worthless. Let windows do what it wants to do and it works really well.

Ubuntu 10.04 12.04 13.10 all work very well with this card. RT61pci

5 out of 5 eggsInternal Wireless card

Pros: I have found all good here. I chose this one because it worked so well in my son's computer I bought two more. I have heard this particular version is no longer being sold.. the two I bought I talked to Edimax personally to get them.

Cons: No cons at all.. bought for WINxp and works well with it. No it does not work with any other OS and that is OK.. my main computer as the kids are still WINXP.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid wireless card

Pros: Bought this for a friend that did not want to run a 75ft cable around the house. It was easy to walk them though setup and has been reliable.

Cons: none, just works.

Other Thoughts: Vista seems to cause disconnects as it resyncs/scans wireless networks. There is work arounds for this but it is annoying.

1 out of 5 eggsLasted a Couple Weeks, Sort of ..

Pros: Didn't install too hard. Doesn't really fit well, as others have mentioned, but i went in.
Nice antenna length.
When it worked, good speed with either of my mentioned routers. Even worked without antenna when near (~<15')
Another exercise in installing and un-installing hardware. - Just what I need (not).

Cons: Wouldn't hold a connection after about a week. - Endless "Disconnected" , "Connecting", "Connected" messages - connected for about 5 seconds. (max)
It's dropped by Newegg, so not going to bother with an RMA dance. - Another $20 down the toilet.
Not even an interesting paper-weight.

Other Thoughts: Location didn't matter. Inches or feet from the antennas on my routers - showed great signal strength in all cases. (Meanwhile, a laptop maintained a connection in the next room.) Router irrelevant: old workhorse, stock linksys wrt54gl (Great Unit! - goes months without a reboot) or newer 'Tomatoed' Asus520gu - swapped; no difference.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry for the difficulty you are experiencing.
We appreciate your feedback and would like to help you solve the problem.
Usually a repeately connect/disconnect behavior is caused by incorrect WPA preshare key. The wireless card tried to connect, the wireless router disconnect it, then the wireless card tried to connect again.
We are not sure about your Windows OS. You might have a wireless profile in Windows and another wireless profile in Edimax Wireless utility. You may want to check them out.
Please feel free to contact our tech support at 408-496-1105 or write an email to " support@edimax.us ".
We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Windows 7 64bit

Pros: Works perfectly
Very long cord (sometimes a hassle)
Drivers were easy to find
Installing it was simple

Cons: It didn't fit a smoothly as i wanted it to. This is mostly likely due to my cheap motherboard and case.

1 out of 5 eggsSpeed PLUMMETS after a while

Pros: Cheap. Detachable antenna.

Cons: After start up, the product works for a while. The length of time varies.

Then, the receive speed suddenly plummets from 55 Mbps to 5 Mbps and does not recover. This affects internet performance as well as network performance.

You are able to view the speed using the supplied software network manager.

The only way to correct it is to "Repair" the connection (XP) or "Activate" the profile in the supplied network manager (Windows 7).

Other Thoughts: I would NOT recommend this card to anyone.

My router is a WRT54GL with dd-wrt. I have the latest drivers installed and tested with XP and Windows 7. I even tried it with older drivers and got the same result. I changed the transfer speed from "Auto" to "55 Mbps" with same result.

This card is the same hardware as the Rosewill RNX-G300EX.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat While it Worked

Pros: Best PCI card that I tried...while it worked.

Cons: After 9 months, it loses its connection very often.

Other Thoughts: I don't mind spending extra cash; why can't someone make a reliable network card?
