Ease of Use

The card is fast and works very well. The networking software did not want to connect correctly and would not hold WEP key. I have a linksys router. I used the windows interface instead and it worked very well. quote

I just received this adapter today along with a WRT54GS router with speedbooster. It is very fast and it was up and working in five minutes. Great product.

Excellent Item

by Will on 2/10/2007

To all the techies, computer savy people and everyone out there, If you think that buying a wirelss card with speedbooster as opposed to a regular makes little difference then you better think twice! If you live in an apartment building or a busy area where there is much interference such as cordless phones, mobile phones, multiple people using wireless internet, then this wireless with speedbooster is the way to go. When I was using my laptop's built-in internal wireless card with my wireless travel adapter, I was dealing with constant poor signals or none at all. Now that I have the wireless card with speedbooster, my signal never gets lower then 55%. TIP - If you plan to use a home cordless telephone at the same place you use your wireless internet, I recommend a 5.8ghz or higher range to prevent inteference. Good luck and enjoy!
