3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and durable but limited range 30 Dec 2002
The linksys Wireless PCMCIA Card is one of the cheapest you will find, but as with other things, you get what you pay for. I forgot this simple truth when I purchased this item, and I desrved what I got. The card fitted to my laptop works great in the same room with the wireless AP I use, but leave the room with the lap top and signal strength quickly downgrades.
If all you want is a wireless system that lets you update files on your lap top without re-connecting cables all the time, then buy this card. It works. But if you want to use the Internet and access a home network seemlessly and wirelessly anywhere in your house, buy the Orinoco Silver or Gold PCMCIA card instead. It costs a bit more, but the range is easily double that of the linksys.
By the way, the only differance between silver and gold is its encryption ability. If you don't care about encryption, save some money and go for the Orinoco silver card.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well in my Laptop but with limited range 2 Sep 2002
You know how it is. Postman arrives with Linksys WAP 11 wireless access point and the WPC11 PCMCIA card for my Dell Laptop.
I had 30 minutes before going to the movies with the family. Do I have time to get it up an running...? Just.
Installing the WAP 11 and WPC11 is fairly straight forward, assuming you have a reasonably good grasp of the issues at hand. It takes 5 minutes to install the software for each device, plus a further 5 minutes to set the WAP11 up via USB.
Type a few simple values into each setup utility and away you go. The only real dissappointment is the wireless range. It's OK up to about 15-20 meters but more than that and the devices constantly disconnect. It's not as though I live in a substantially walled house, because I don't. Anymore than two plasterboard walls between access point and laptop is too much and even when seperated by two walls I have to make sure that the PCMCIA slot is the same side as the access point.
Overall though this is a good home/home office product. I'm not sure I'll be using it this time next year and certainly won't if I move to a bigger, more substantial house. But for now, it's fine and certainly beats having network cables running across the floor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of gear 4 Nov 2002
Simple to set up using ad-hoc networking this little gizmo lets the family surf at super fast speeds while lying in bed. If this is not your cup of tea it does mean that you can share printers, set up file servers etc all within the home environment without any cabling. A word of warning though. The very detailed instruction booklet neglects to mention that you need to set up your DNS server's IP address on all client PCs. Once you've got this sorted out there should be no problems. You will also need to be careful about which firewalls to install on your clients (as well as host) some do not make it easy to share. I use Norton after having found that McAfee did not work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product but reception could be better 18 Mar 2003
I've had no problems with this in and around my average three bedroom suburban "Barratt box". But I have to say, when compared with the USB unit I use on my desktop, reception is not nearly so good at the same range. If it wasn't for this slight grumble, I would've given it five stars.
I've heard other PCMCIA cards do a better job, but have no direct experience of this.
I use this card with the Linksys wireless router and everything worked straight out of the boxes on default settings (but you should change these at your earliest convenience for obvious security reasons).
