wpc600n still has VERY BUGGY Drivers
on January 14, 2008
This is NOT a card ready for mainstream enterprise wireless. It does not work well at all using enterprise 802.1x authentication methods. It does not support LEAP, and while the Client utility says it supports EAP-TLS, it does not work with the new Cisco AP1252. I compared this card to the new Intel MiniPCI Express 4965 abgn adaptor in the new Lenovo Thinkpad T61 laptops. The Intel adaptor worked with all types of EAP auth methods and worked well with both 20 and 40 MHz wide GHz MiMo channels for optimum 11n operation. I was only able to get 40 MHz MiMo to work on the Linksys card when I set up WPA-PSK which rules operation in an enterprise.
Four months after it's release, it still has V1.0 drivers from Linksys and still has very slow and cumbersome client utility.
The client utility frankly stinks compared to either the Intel Proset or the Atheros Client Utility (ACU).
Today; pass on this card and get the full 11n Draft 2 Intel 4965 laptop internal card.
