Good bang for the buck

Got this bundle for $20 after rebate. Worked just fine right out of the box. (Win2K Pro) The only problem I have is getting security configured the same way on the router and the card so I'm stuck without encryption. But hey, for $20 it's not a bad deal. It's been running about a week now with no drops or rebooting required. Even my cheapo 2.4GHz phone doesn't seem to interfere with it. I was a little concerned about the speed only being 11Mbps but it seems to work fine for Internet browsing and it seems just as fast as when I'm directly hooked up via Ethernet cable to my Comcast cable modem. Now if I can just get the encryption security to work the same on both the router and the card.

Good Value for Money

on 1/7/2005

I have used this product for over a month now and i am really happy with its performance. The connection is very stable and does not interfere with my phone which also runs on 2.4 GHz. I was thinking of buying the 802.11g but then decided that i am only a home user and so i dont need to spend the extra cash. Well for me it not make much difference in speed because after checking the speed after hardwiring comes to be the same with wireless. The only problem that i found was when i enabled the Web Enabled Protection the wireless card does not connect to the internet and i have to manually repair the connection to bring it online and after that its all fine...Support is good..i gave them a call but they could help me solve the problem..overall i am satisfied with the product and the performace.
