5 out of 5 eggsIt's worth it...

Pros: Just bought last one from Newegg,... it's my second unit first worked flawless with Win XP and Vista...second will work with custom build system with Win 7.

Never install any software that comes with it... Win XP & Vista loads the newest Marvel- Libretta drivers for the unit. Managing throught networking tools from OS...

Had no idea that some others manufacture wireless adapters can NO WORK with Vista... that's new for me...!

Cons: Well,...didn't see any..

Other Thoughts: Should buy more for 4 desktops I have... but still using the wire as the fastest and most secure connection for my network...

5 out of 5 eggsworks with Linux Ubuntu 9.1

Pros: It works well in a upgraded 1998 Gateway G6-400 PC. Yes a 1998, you read it correctly, a Gateway made in 1998.

Cons: The computer is 11 years old but, it works fine for wasting time on Facebook and other light duty internet surfing.

Other Thoughts: The PC has been upgraded with a Power Leap 1.4ghz upgrade kit, Audigy gamer soundcard, 384 mgs of memory, 128mg ATI graphic card, and 300 watt power supply. Ubuntu 9.1 Karmic Koala ROCKS!!

Pros: NONE OTHER THAN PRICE

Cons: Where do I start.Went to ASUS website looking for help left mail id.Card will not connect and/or will drop the connection for no apparent reason.let xp install driver no luck.Install software from cd rom before installing no luck.Install latest driver from website no luck.They should call it the no luck card.

Other Thoughts: I understand the price choice but I expected more from a name like Asus BTW look at mail id:WTM20091029320366196

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Supports 802.1x and other security standards.
It's priced well for what it is, compared to a Linksys card.
Fit's in a low profile slot with the card slot that was provided.

Cons: Software that comes with it just sucks.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent performance for the price

Pros: Got the Asus WL-138g v2 card in about 3 months ago, it was 13.99$ with free shipping, that was much cheaper than any other PCI wifi card to find in the city (at around 30-35$). The signal is excellent from my room on the second floor, the router being in the basement. I always have 54Mbps, at least theoretical :)
The real appreciation came when I changed my computer for a SFF, where only low profile card fit...and boy I was happy that this card come with a low profile bracket.

Cons: The software is old and obsolete. Don't even bother to install it, just use the driver for the card, witch is also quite old (from 2005). I got some critical errors from the Asus software, so I just uninstalled it, and let Windows manage it.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm satisfied with the card, works ok, at least for me. But I can't really say what it's maximal real spead, as my Internet connection is only 6Mbps.

3 out of 5 eggsHit and a miss

Pros: Bargain bottom price(3 year old piece of equipment).
The one that works (I got 2) works great. My "hotrod" computer sucked it up like a champ and runs it pretty well. Even showing 11 mbp, it gives me excellent strength. 0 packetloss and you would never know you were wireless. Win XP SP 3

Cons: The one that doesn't work. Win XP Media center edition. This is not in a homebuilt pc, rather in an HP Media center. It only had 1 open pci slot, which was between the capture card and the video card (a hot spot). I am hoping the problem is heat, but after uninstalling it, it won't even install in the new slot.

Other Thoughts: I did not uninstall the card that was in the other slot, I'll do that now and edit this later if it fixxes it. Odds are though, that it is not a heat issue and I just got 1 good card and 1 bad card.
