Pros:

Price. I got it on sale for a really good price and so can you!

I've got a really good signal off of a Linksys WRT54G2.

The card seems pretty stable. I haven't randomly disconnected like other people have been stating. My ping in World of Tanks usually runs from around 90-200s. 200s only when other people are using their computers.

When I first encountered the Encore brand a few years ago I was a little on the fence about getting it. I've never heard of it before and I was pretty skeptical since the products were so inexpensive.

But I took the plunge and now I swear by it. I have a router, and a PCI slot card that they no longer make and they have both worked flawlessly for years. I'm sure this card will be the same so I definitely recommend this card.

Cons:

None that I can think of so far. Windows 7 didn't automatically install the drivers but that's what the CD is for. No reason to knock off an egg.

Other Thoughts:

I'm not sure what other people what other people's problems are with the drivers, but this is what I did.

1. Installed the card into a free PCI-E slot - doesn't matter what length.
2. Turned on the computer and popped the CD in.
3. Start -> Right click My Computer -> Properties -> Device Manager.
4. Under Other Devices you'll see Network Controllers. Right click that and click Update Driver.
5. Click Browse my computer for driver software.
6. If you're running a 64bit system Find the path: (CD Drive) D:\Driver_Utility\ENEWI-1XN4x_2XN4x_Driver_Utility_W4EN101104\RTL8192_CE_Driver\VistaX64

If you're running a 32bit system you need to find the x86 folder.
7. Keep clicking yes or next until it's installed.
