Pros None that I can see
Cons Where to begin...
It disconnects from the internet every 5 minutes, makes it almost impossible to install windows updates in a timely matter, if at all. Took me 20 minutes just to get to this page to leave this review.
Summary Bought it from Fry's, plan on returning it ASAP. Would NEVER recommend this to anyone unless you have A LOT of free time and you like to waste it waiting for a page to load on the internet. Again, nearly impossible to install Windows updates because it disconnects so often.
Pros solid long distance coverage, easy setup
Cons none that I've found
Summary I've tried other PCI adapters from Netgear but nothing worked as reliably as this external one. The other adapters had the antenna connected directly to the back of the card; the WN311B connects via a long cable allowing you to set the antenna in locations for better signal strength. My desktop computer is on a lower level and about 300 ft from the router and I get excellent signal strength readings every time. The rated speed is usually 54Mbps.
Setup was a breeze and I had all going fine in 20 min. This adapter was worth every penny I paid.
Pros Worked fine for about a week
Cons Constantly drops network; has to be rebooted, on average, every five minutes; frustrating and memory hungry netgear software
Pros Wierd but easy set up
Cons It dose not work as great as they claim..
Summary My N router is downstairs no more than 29ft away,and the downloads are slow...my PS3 is farther away and it rocks over this adapter.last but not least,the drivers are from 2007,and it dose not do it`s own updates..you have to hunt them down...buy it but keep your receipt near by...
Pros When drivers are updated, all is well
Cons Support, ease of use, driver update failures, messy update zip files, open box pull card insert card pull card insert card update loops
Summary This is a fast setup at 70 feet or less. Support is poor. Drivers must be updated before you can even think about an internet connection. Update page downloads a zip file that contains a lot of extras and you may or maynot get the drivers to update until you try,try,try again and again and again. It is a painful experience.
