4 out of 5 eggsAdditional info re Win7 drivers

Pros: The card installed automatically in Win7-64 Home Premium on a Compaq V6120US.upon insertion into the slot, with what seemed to be generic Win7 drivers that were dated in 2009. Those are the drivers I'd recommend.

Cons: I don't recommend updating the driver with the package found on the mediatek driver download site for the Ralink "PCI/ mPCI / CB(RT2860/ RT2760/ RT2890)" dated 11/29/2012!

Other Thoughts: The update driver function in Win7 Device Manager said it could not find newer drivers, but the mediatek site shows a much newer update was released for the Ralink RT2860 chipset. I downloaded that installer package and it ran without issues. Unfortunately the card established an initial connection at only 54 mbps and within 7-10 minutes was running only 5.5 mbps. I removed it and it was very, very warm. I let the card cool, reinserted it, and that same thing happened again. I rolled back the driver in Device Manager and it once again connects at 135-150 mbps and remains stable.

5 out of 5 eggsNear perfect for old notebook running Win7-64

Pros: Works fine, installed without issues in Compaq Presario V6120US; immediately connected at 135 mbps with good signal strength. Plug and play, no need to use driver CD with Win7-64.

Cons: Not the most stable in the ExpressCard slot but for $5 with promo code I am not complaining. Not worth a one-star deduction.

Other Thoughts: This particular notebook usually has a wired mouse and keyboard attached to 2 of the 3 USB ports, so leaving the third one open for a flash drive rather than using it for a WiFi adapter was pretty much necessary.

The V6000 series is known to have motherboard issues that render the onboard WiFi inoperative. Mine finally quit the other day and when I found this for barely over $5 I figured it was worth a shot. I had updated this notebook to Win 7-64 a while back and thought I'd just boot it up, insert the card, and see if it would install without any other action. It was immediately recognized, the proper Ralink drivers were installed very quickly (without any need for an internet connection). A few seconds later, the icon for "network(s) available" appeared in the systray, I entered the password for our home network and it connected immediately. I'd definitely recommend this if you have a free ExpressCard slot.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!!

Pros: Inexpensive, easy to install, works!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The internal wireless card on my old laptop died. I ordered this on Monday, it arrived Thursday. Put in the disk, click continue a few times, it tells you to install the card, and that's it. No muss, no fuss.

3 out of 5 eggsNo Luck

Pros: It was cheap, worth a try.

Cons: I had Windows 8 and was tinkering. It didn't work, nor did any of the lights work at any point. I tried several versions of the driver, the Medialink drivers, with and without the utility, which never opened.

It didn't even show up in the Device Manager, so the computer wasn't even "seeing" it.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't worry with trying this if you have anything outside of XP or Vista. Truth is I don't know if it's a dead adapter, or if it's the fact I've got Windows 8, but I'm not going to bother sending it back.

My laptop has never "seen" my old integrated Network card either, since upgrading to Windows 8--I guess some hardware just disappears.

I even tried reinstalling the PCMCIA drivers to no avail.

5 out of 5 eggsMight Be Helpful

Pros: Doing preresearch

Cons: Nothing yet, but found something that might be helpful to those with Windows 7 and Windows 8, which I have.

Other Thoughts: Found this,
...The key to making this product work is to neither use the included installation CD nor install drivers provided by Belkin. Instead, use the reference drivers from this card's chipset maker, Ralink. Go to Ralink's web site and navigate to the support section. For Windows users, select that section, and download the software for part number RT2860.

I'd try theirs first, and go to this only if it doesn't work. Drivers here.

2 out of 5 eggsNot good for me

Pros: Windows 7 x64 detected and installed with no problems.

Cons: Would only run at 150mbps and 135mbps on 2 different 300mbps routers. Youtube videos were very choppy and had a lot of video artifacts , even with the router 10 feet away.

2 out of 5 eggsNever worked in Windows 7 64-bit

Pros: A small footprint, snugged into express slot nicely, pretty blue light matched laptop

Cons: Never worked in Win7 64-bit.

Other Thoughts: Tried Belkin and the chipset maker's drivers and neither seemed to do the trick even though they installed successfully. Win7 sees the device but doesn't actually seem to assign it the drivers properly. It is actually listed as a device in the Network Sharing Center but it is disabled and will not enable no matter what I try. Nothing online helped, Belkin support is something awful. It isn't Win7 compatible officially, so I have sent it back and will try the Linksys wec600n which is Win7 compatible officially.
