Pros It installed flawlessly on my Compaq Evo laptop running Windows XP Pro. Performance has been pretty good (comparable to my old card). Distance has also been good. No complaints yet...
Cons None so far...
Pros Using on Dell Latitude C640 running Windows XP-Pro and HP notebook running Windows XP-Home. Using with Linksys WRT54GS router. Range sufficient that I get complete coverage for both units on all 3 floors and the backyard deck of a 2800sqft house with only
Cons Expensive. Linksys Tech Support and Knowledge Base leave something to be desired. Seems to occasionally drop connection for just 1 second, but it's long enough for the VPN to disconnect.
Pros Good reliable communication with the access point, great utility for configuring profiles (I'm using WinXP Home)
Cons Infrequent network confusion when restarting from hibernation.
Pros No problems installing on a Toshiba Satellite 4090XDVD laptop. Performance is on par with expectations based on moving 500MB files over an FTP. Able to use card and laptop IN MY CAR about 50 yards away going through three interior and one exterior wall fr
Cons Wish it had a retractable antenna like 3com's wireless cards.
Pros Inexpensive at WalMart
Cons Crashes my tablet and rarely works
Summary I bought the WPC54GS as a complement to my Portege200 tablet internal WiFi Intel modem. Big mistake. The install software loads "vanguard.exe" which my XP Tablet hates. Every time I boot the tablet, Windows sends MS headquarters an error report complaining about vanguard.exe. I say Avoid Avoid Avoid this notebook adapter if you have a tablet.
The install instructions/utility are confusing.
I rarely write opinions but this product was bad enought to make me alert others.
