Took two tries to get it to install correctly, but once it took, first scan found networks my previous card from netgear missed. Thinnest card I've seen.

Works as expected, 100% plug and play on Vista, didn't even have to go vendor's website for drivers - vista took care of everything. Looks like it's RALink chipset - should work very well for packet injection and wifi cracking on Linux...

good range, some problems maintaining a connection

by Pat on 6/15/2008

Better range than my Netgear WG511, even with a Netgear wifi router, but sometimes drops the connection, even with a strong signal (the RALink win2k drivers are more up to date and help a lot, but don't completely solve the problem). Otherwise would be 5 stars across the board. Still, it reconnects quickly and gives me a connection in parts of the house that were dead before. Can't beat the price after rebate. Read More
