Pros Build quality appears to be very good.
Cons Won't work with anything other than XP or 2000. Couldn't even install it. Shoulda checked closer as I unfortunately have ME. Found out the tech line is atrocious, looking for a software fix. won't respond to e-mails. 40 minute wait's on the phone. Wan
Pros Works just as well as the router it self. No trouble at all to set up. This and the Wireless Pre-N router works like a dream.
Cons Slighty expensive but worth the cost if you like the high speeds like me.
Pros Once the best card in the market (PRE Windows 7 64 bit).
Cons NOT compatible to Windows 7 64 bit. India support claims it will never be compatible. Cannot contact Belkin Compton HQ.
Summary Evidently Belkin is NOT interested in addressing this problem. Sad, it was once an outstanding company with great products. Oh well.NOT compatible to Windows 7 and India claims there will not be an upgrade ! Sad, once a great company with excellent products. Oh well.

Pros Does what you ask of it, pretty good range.
Cons None that i can think of.
Pros Works well with matching router (seems to run at full speed); less interference problems; easy installation
Cons Conpatibility with other routers is questionable;
Summary I bought this card and matching router to create a home wireless network for a Compaq 3080 Presario laptop computer and a Dell Inspiron laptop. I usually keep the Dell connected via wire, but sometimes go wireless also.
I have been trying to network these 2 laptops for quite some time, but kept getting poor or dropped connections. The latest attempts involved the highly rated Netgear WG511T wireles card with the following routers: Netgear MR814v2 (108.11b), Netgear WGT624 (10811g), and Linksy (108.11g, forget the model). Despite my best attempts with these devices, I was never able to stop the dropped connections. Research suggested that the most likely cause was interference from neighboring networks or other devices (several showed up in my scans), but I was not able to find any band or channel configuration that prevented this.
Thus, my main concern was connection stability. I live in a 2BR apartment (1 floor), so range isn't as much a concern for me. I bought the Belkin Pre-N card because the online reviews seemed to indicate this card had fewer problems with interference. When I tried the card with my Netgear routers, the connection seemed to persisst, but the speed was very slow !!! VERY VERY SLOW !!! So then I added the matching router, and the speed consistently shows 108 Mbps. And I have not had a dropped connection yet.
Havent had them long yet to give a higher score, but so far I am pleased that it got me past the hurdles that the other cards could not.
