Great and easy to use7/9/2011
Just plugged it into the slot and it worked almost immediately. I am however using the built in network connections interface through windows rather than the Belkin that came with the card, as someone else had mentioned in a previous review. But i didn't have trouble with either.
Good Hardware, forget the Software!10/3/2010
I bought two of these for old Dell laptops that didn't have built-in Wireless capability. Previously, I had used a USB Wireless adaptor on my laptop, but since it only has one USB port, you couldn't use anything else unless you had a USB Hub. The card comes with drivers and Wireless management Software. I never could get the Belkin Software to work, and after calling Belkin Support, that seems to be the norm with that Software. So, I disabled the Belkin software, and used the default Windows XP Wireless Management, and the Belkin card works fine! I did a three day burn-in over a VPN connection, and the Belkin card worked perfectly. And at a price of $10.99 per card, I'm completely satisfied, in spite of the software.
Great product at a great price!3/8/2010
I bought this for a six-year-old Dell laptop running Windows XP, SP2 I gave to a computerless teen. It still worked great as the hard drive was replaced two years ago (and this was when Dell was still building pretty solid stuff), but the built-in wireless was spotty and, more often than not, non-existent. The connection is now solid, and she said installation was EXTREMELY easy! Thanks for a great product at a great price!
