Just Great!

on 8/29/2005

I have an older laptop, running Win.ME, and I have been using the DFE-690TXD for about 2 years without any problems. Pretty much all newer notebooks now incorporate a 10/100 NIC, but if all you have is a (32 bit) PC card slot, this adapter is great. The installation is super easy and fast, it comes with a protective case, and allows "hot-plug". You just need a cat.5 cable, and most hotels will have one, in case you forget yours. Read More
