Flawless with XP and Ubuntu Linux
on 18 July 2008
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.
