My second laptop, that happens to be newer than my first, crashed the internal wireless card. I did not wish to send it back to HP, which would have cost more than it was worth so, I shopped around and found Buy.com and the USB connector to the Internet. I thought, how bad could buying a refurb be since it comes with a warranty etc.
The set up was as easy as I thought - getting used to an external connector is the only thing I have to remember but, Cisco is one of the best companies and I would recommend Buy.com to anyone who wants a great deal for great products!
Thanks BUY for giving me my light-weight laptop back!!!
The item worked great however its construction is a bit flimsy. It sticks out of the side of your laptop and is easy to bump into. At first a little rejiggering got it working again but eventually the internal usb connection failed due to the stress from bumping it. I am now looking for a new one that is not so prone to damage. A better housing would have solved the problem
Way to delicate for me.
