I bought this card to gain access to my wireless network, any others that have to potential to connect to in a public area years go as a replacement because the previous one kept dropping out and loosing its connection. This one does no such thing; it works tirelessly and is fast at gaining access to data on a non stop basis. Furthermore it slots into the side of the laptop and is small slim and discreet. It's got wireless "G" which means that if you connect it to another Belkin wireless router than shares the same technology then it gains access to the network at a faster rate. Furthermore it's simple to use and with two straightforward lights on the side you can tell when data is being transferred back and fore.
It's also flexible with the software: You can either use the software that comes with it, or if you prefer you can let windows manage the internet connection and leave the software uninstalled. Currently I use it with Windows XP so it's supported up to that version of the windows operating system.
I can't think of any faults with this. It's basic without too many features, easy to use and does what it needs to do. My only criticism is that the range isn't as long as I'd like it to be and cannot penetrate concrete walls all that well. That said unless you live in a huge mansion this shouldn't really be of any concern to you. From my point of view, it comes highly recommended.
I have been using this wireless card to access the internet. I have been using this wireless card from everything to casual surfing of the internet to on line gaming. This card is just wonderful working flawlessly. Like I said I have been using it for over a year now, never having a single problem. It picks up signals that are extremely far away and will hold a connection that is pretty much gone. I have not complaints regarding this card. This is a wireless card that is used with laptop computers. I would recommend this to any one that has a laptop. Even if it had a built in wire less card. As you never know when you will need an external wireless card. Not only does this card connect to the internet everytime, it is also very sturdy. I have knocked this around several times with no problems. Once again I would recommend this wireless adapter to any one that might have a lap top that will take this type of wireless cards. Great product never had a singel problem with it. Has worked every time over and over again.
