EDIMAX EW-7128G Wireless Card IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Lasted a Couple Weeks, Sort of .. 12/16/2011

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7128G Wireless Card IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

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.

EDIMAX EW-7128G Wireless Card IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good packaging; simple, straightforward software install; up in one shot. Hardware: simple card, easy install save slight variation for my MBO::case orientation. (generic PCI problem in this particular tower for me) - A beginner who recognizes a PCI slot should be able to install this. Connected to my close-by linksys wrt54 easily - will test a 'tomato'ed Asus next week.

Cons: Not really a "Con" but you'll need to know your network specs if you are in a network 'target rich' environment; the same for ANY interface install.

Other Thoughts: Time will tell but it ran on first boot, hopefully for thousands more. Four eggs 'cuz no one gets five from me.
and as always, NewEgg is primo; no fuss, no muss. Order=Delivery as expected.

ASUS WL-520gU 802.11b/g Wireless Router up to 54Mbps with All-in-One Print Server/ DD-WRT Open Source support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works; Cute. Set it and Forgot it and ran over a month before I remembered and figured I'd better boot it just to make sure it still would. It could and did.
Now it's been 2 months without a hiccup. Might beat out my more expensive stock Linksys WRT-GL and THAT is a 2 yr old workhorse.

Cons: Connecting cables boss it around it's so light. Gave it a little rubber mat (mousepad) for some friction to better hold its ground.

It's at my girlfriend's apartment. (Oh wait... that's not a CON - Nevermind)

Other Thoughts: Delivered 11-2010; Loaded tomato ( tomato-NDUSB-1.28.8752-vpn3.6 - working fine since) ; easy if you're a pro flasher, if not, read directions, understand them, and explicitly follow directions tediously and you'll love it more; nice gui. NOTE: ** HAVEN'T USED THE USB FUNCTION YET **
