Having two pcs using USB Wifi dongles for over a year and having nothing but bother with my wireless network i added another pc using one of these cards.

It was 100% reliable in the new machine so i have now upgraded the other two machines to these aswell. Can't fault it. The connection has never dropped since switching. It never used to last an hour without some sort of hang up or disconnection before.

The unit supplied does not come with the antenna attached directly to the rear of the card as pictured, it comes with a 'remote' antenna on a cable so it can be positioned on the desk or somewhere with better reception than the back of your base unit.

One of the machines is running XP and two of them Ubuntu Linux (one 7.10, one 8.04) and all of them worked out of the box with no need to use the driver CD and no messing about with ndiswrapper on the linux boxes.

In XP this thing works fine, although the included software is unnecessary and annoying. The aerial cable is too short in my opinion - barely long enough to enable it to sit on a desk if your desktop is on the floor. In Windows 7, your system will freeze without the latest drivers, which are available from the US Edimax website (not edimax dot com for some reason). Type 'edimax us download' into google to find them.

Tried this in Windows XP, immediate installation and it found a WiFi hotspot from a business at least 600 metres away as well as our own router. Installed it with Fedora Linux with no problems and it should work with any distribution using a reasonably up to date Linux kernel. Performance seems OK and range not an issue in a normal (!) house. What you can't easily do unless your Linux skills are a lot better than mine is install Linux with a basic installation disc and download the rest of the distribution wirelessly, you need a more complete installation set (typically 3 CDs). This is not a problem with the product which gets 5 stars all round, the point is that the Ralink drivers are not on the basic installation discs. As others have mentioned the antenna is not as illustrated, which suits us well.

I purchased this network card because I required a card to satisfy both of my operating systems. I previously had a Linksys wireless G (wmp54g) pci card installed, and while this worked fine with Vista, it is not compatible with Linux operating systems (at least without allot of hard work).

Many thanks to the previous reviewer for pointing out its compatibility with Ubuntu, and as he says the card does not come as pictured, "it comes with a 'remote' antenna on a cable".

The wireless connection appears to be very good, better than my previous card. It maintains at least 4 or 5 bars in the Vista Network manager. For the price, you cannot go wrong.

After changing my ISP I received a new wireless ADSL router (Siemens Gigaset SE587) and then found it necessary to replace an old wireless network card on a very old desktop PC. It was for this reason I was looking for a budget priced PCI WiFi card which supported the newer security levels (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) and would also provide a strong and reliable signal strength.

After reading the unanimous 5 star reviews for this product I considered the Edimax EW-7128g WiFi Card a safe bet!

MY FINDINGS
-------------
The card only comes with the remote antenna. Its not a problem, just a point of clarification (see my customer image for details).

Before installing the card I downloaded the latest Windows XP device driver from the Edimax website (I would always recommend downloading driver and/or firmware when available as standard practice).

After installing the card I used the Edimax Configuration Tool which was extremely easy to use. However, the following day after switching the PC back on the network card wouldn't connect to the network without me first re-selecting the network and entering the security details. After testing this several times I realised the settings weren't being saved after each reboot (OS Windows XP Professional).

I logged a support call via the Edimax website (Saturday evening).

I then decided configure the network card in the same way I have configured all my other network cards on other computers using the standard Microsoft Zero Configuration Tool (Windows XP/Vista). On this occasion the network security details were saved.

The Edimax Configuration Tool is still useful for identifying other networks in the area and confirming the channels they are using.

Received within a few days of ordering. I'd never braved mucking around with the internals of my PC before, but didn't really want something that plugged into a USB port, so went for it.
I also use WPA security on my WiFi which some other cards etc. don't seem to support.
My PC manual (HP Pavilion) gave good descriptions for fitting a PCI card, and in the end it was dead easy to fit.
I followed the instructions and booted up, ran the install etc. I found it easier to use Windows Zero rather than the RALink config tool. I quickly found & connected to my wireless network - but in the status line I still had a cross next to the Local Area Connection symbol which when hovered on stated that "A Network Cable is unplugged". However I soon found that I could ignore this - I was in fact online - but was just expecting that icon to show I was conected to something.
As I say above you seem to have to decide between the RALink config tool and the "Windows Zero" - I connected OK, but then started the RALink config tool and lost the connection, so imho better to stick to the Windows Zero and not start up the RALink config tool.
All seemed to now be working OK, but I then found that I got an annoying three beeps from Windows XP after I signed in to Windows. I finally worked out that the RALink software had added itself to the Start Up programs - removing this got rid of the three beeps.
On occasion, the PC hasn't managed to connect to Wifi on start-up - I think this may have been when I still had RAlink running in the start-up - but this is quick to resolve - simply disconnect & reconnect to the network and it then works fine.
So in summary, an easy install, quick to connect and works fine with WPA encryption. I'd recommend using Windows config rather than RAlink & remove RAlink from start-up programs.
