Just be sure to back up the registry and create a restore point before you run TCPOptimizer, on the off-chance something goes wrong. Other than these difficulties, this seems to be a great card.

Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. After reading many of the reviews posted here I was undecided whether I should take the advice of some reviewers and ignore the Linksys instructions which advised to install the software first before installing the card into the computer case. It took hours to install. I powered the computer back on, booted up, and held my breath, hoping it would work, but also kind of expecting it to give me a problem of the kind described by other reviewers.


One last piece of advice, if you run into a problem when doing your install, only call Linksys as a last, desperate resort.

Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. The metal pci slot bracket is full height but the card itself is less than half height.

I can find alot more wireless networks in my area than my laptop using this card on my desktop.

I would recommend that if you purchase this card follow the instructions provided by Linksys. WPA was not available as a selection in the wirless network setup. Add to Wish List. I had been seeing the same thing over and over This card detected both of the wireless routers and asked which one I would like to link up to.

It’s all working reliably now.

I would imagine this was the source of my WEP problems as well, but I never went back to try it. I had a PC hardwired to the router to do this – that’s a good idea if you’re having RF problems as I was.

On to the next problem: The wired and wireless broadband routers from Linksys are top-notch. The card is labeled as version 4.

I wish I read the reviews before my friend purchased it. They are visible, but just linskys not connect – usually anyway. I cannot explain the problems that so many have complained of in their reviews, however I suspect that they themselves MAY have been the cause of the problems. Even their laptop wireless adapter works great for me.

I have used Linksys wireless equipment three routers, three wireless cards until I signed up for FIOS and retired my latest Linksys router.

Hours later after being on hold with tech support, I was told to hard-code an IP address in the card my DSL provider provides IP addresses automatically. Again, a word of advice: The software driver didn’t even start when you clicked on setup. I could not communicate with my router until I deleted this device.

Linksys gets high grades from me for its hardware, but an “F” for tech support.
