5 out of 5 eggsGreat Replacement NIK for Old Laptops

Pros: Fired up immediately on Vista 64 bit on an old Dell Inspiron laptop. Onboard NIK was fried by a lightning strike; since we do not have a wireless environment, a wired LAN NIK such as this was my only choice for puting this work station back to work, actually seemed noticeably faster than the onboard 10/100 NIK which had died.

Cons: None so far, other than most laptops are used in wireless environments these days.

1 out of 5 eggsOverpriced for what it is.

Pros: Works great at 10/100.........and that's about it.

Cons: Will not connect at gigbit speeds unless drivers are reinstalled every time windows is started. Even then, good luck with that. Even tried different driver versions including the ones provided on the web site and nothing.

Other Thoughts: I have emailed their support link 3 times and haven't even gotten a response back in a month now despite their site saying they will get back to you with in 24 to 48 hours. I ditched them and went with the cheaper Bytecc that actually works.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks flawlessly

Pros: It took about 2 minutes to install the adapter. I have dual boot laptop, with Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows Server 2008; it works flawlessly with both systems. Couldn’t be happier with the adapter and the price is great.

Cons: None, thank you.

Other Thoughts: I had initial trepidations when I inserted the card in the ExpressCard slot and nothing happened. But then as soon as I plugged the Ethernet cable, Windows 7 popped-up with the normal new device found message. Once I pointed the CD Rom drive for the driver, it took less than two minutes for Windows to install the driver and I was up and running. So make sure to plug in the Ethernet cable in the card, otherwise the OS would not recognize the card. By the way, it is an Agere systems card.
