"Smart, Strong and Simple. Looks Damn Good Too!"4.5 starson by Delmarco
Pros: Great Signal Finder, Smart & Easy to use out the box
Cons: None really, Head sticks out about 1 inch from PCI slot.
Summary: Great card. If there is one card you will even need, I guarantee it is this one.
Living in NYC, About a year and a half ago I got this card and used it on my old Compaq/HP Presario laptop around the Village and my Upper East Side College Campus. The card always found a signal somewhere. Even when my classmate's LinkSys and Netgear (he upgrade to the netgear) card failed to get the same signal on his identical Compaq Presario laptop.
Well I sold my laptop and got a Toshiba Satellite wireless. But the wireless was no where nearly as good as the proxim card so I bought the card again and use it now. So far it has worked for me in lots of places outside New York since I travel frequently for school and work. From Maine to Florida and no complains yet.
By the way, don't pay CNET's recommended $91.99 for the card. I bought both my Proximo a/b/g gold cards off eBay brand new and sealed in the box for under $50.00 ($42.50 and $47.99 respectively).
This card has been out for a few years now and no one should have to pay the original retail price.
