Socket To You

by moscow580 on 2/15/2005

In short I loaded the software on my computer (I mistakenly tried to install PC 2002, I have PC 2003 PDA - install Windows Mobile 2003) and then I plugged in the card into my HP 1945 and the PDA immediately located my personal network and I was surfing on the internet within minutes of opening the box. I was very happy. The only issue, not really a problem, but a warning....it picked up other networks within range that I did not know existed. Thus, it would be smart to include WEP on your router to keep the others out.

Works great, excellent WLAN toolset included

by webvette on 5/7/2005

I have been using this card for a while now. No problems. Definately download the latest driver and WLAN tools from Socket. The tools are very nice! I've tried a variety and this set of tools is great - especially for the price - free. Very easy to use. Easy access to network and device info., network/device configuration, statistics, graphs, etc. Includes ping and traceroute, certificate info. and easy access to the web and email. If you're new to wireless be sure to research and implement some security in your wireless network too.
