Just installed the WG311T PCI cards on two pc's connecting through my WGT624 and so far everything is great . Good signal and speed on both computers and no dis-connects . Iam pretty happy with my results todate .
But .......

IMPORTANT NOTE ON INSTALL WITH XP AND SP2 !!!

1.)If you use the Netgear application to monitor/manage your Wifi stuff then you MUST disable the "wireless-zero" in the "Adminstative tools" in the control panel for things to work correctly ( start/settings/contrpl panel/administative tools/services/wireless zero ; and put to "DISABLE"

2.)If you use WindowsXP to monitor/manage your Wifi , then you MUST disable the Netgear application (start /run / then TYPE IN: msconfig / then look in "startup"/ then DISABLE or UN-CHECK the line saying "GEAR 311T".

You must do one of the two items Ive listed to make sure your netgear Wifi works /connects properly (to the internet) . Seems you cant NOT use both applications together in anyway . Ive done ALOT of testing on this and this is the ONLY method(s) Ive found to work correctly (and this is not mentioned by Netgear or Microsoft) .

I hope this helps future users of this equipment . =)

I have gotten quite a bit of experience with this card, so might share some information with others about the quality of this product. The Netgear WG311T is the 108 Mbps version of the PCI based wireless adapter for PC's. Note that there is also a 108Mbps USB 2.0 adapter (WG111T) version as well as a 108 Mbps PC Card (WG511T) version for notebooks. The USB 2.0 one seems quite nice, but this WG311T comes with an attenna that you can turn and point in the direction of the wireless router. Note that there has been multiple revisions of this product since introduction. This review is for the V12H019 REV:1 version (printed on the card). I have heard that previous versions (V12H009.0 REV 4 and before) had major problems with freezes and hiccups with VIA chipsets and XP SP2, but the current version I have seems fine (my computer has the VIA chipsets and SP2 of XP). All new cards should have this new version now unless you are buying a used one from someone. Be sure to visit Netgear's website and download the latest drivers for this card (3.0.1.6 as of this writing).

The card supports better WPA security with the new drivers and comes with its own utility to connect with the wi-fi routers/access points. I have heard that it works with Microsoft's wireless utility as well as atheros drivers (the card uses their chip). Note that a lot of experts that have tested 108Mbps thoroughput have found that no 108Mps cards by any manufacturer achieve that rate and is usually half that speed. The 108Mbps advertisement comes from using two channels of 54Mpbs in the 2.4 Ghz spectrum instead of one.

The card does its job and am able to connect fine with the Netgear WGT634U.

Unfortunately this wireless adapter preformed well below any acceptable standards for it to be even considered as an option if you are using a computer with an AMD chipset. I read on one of these reviews that there is a compatibility problem between the two and from my experience, I believe that to be a true statement. I asked Netgear support if there was a compatibility problem between the two and they totally ignored my question, although they did tell me to return the product for a exchange.

I never had consistent service and anytime I put any load on the internet it would freeze and make me have to re-start the computer just to get it back on line.

The only reason it gets 2 stars is because it was really easy to install and the software was easy to use and understand. But, what it comes down to is if the product worked or not, and in my case it didn't even after I worked so hard to fix the problem. (downloading new drivers, troubleshooting, working with Netgear support, reinstaling multiple times)

In the end the fix was simple.. I bought a linksys wireless adapter and the internet is smoking now!

This is a very good card for those that want to experiment with Linux and packet injection, it's fully supported by madwifi-ng. I haven't tried using it in windows but I'm guessing it should work just fine.

Installation is a breeze. I have bought two of these cards, one for AMD one for Intel P4 system. The Card installed on AMD Box was constantly causing the cpu to jump to 90-100% (without any specific processes doing it) and in the end got basically fried to where the 'hardware device could not start'. I had to return it.

The card that was put into intel system was also causing constant usage of cpu in 40-70% range, i eventually uninstalled the Netgear Wireless Assistant and it returned to normal. So as a tip for anyone who is ripping their hair out trying to figure out whats going on - don't use Netgear Software.

In connection properties, go to Wireless Networks tab and check "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings."

Other than having to return one of the cards and spending a couple of hours reinstalling drivers and looking for solutions, it has been working ok. Still can't get nowhere near the promised 108mbs transfer rates... maximum was 40mbs - and thats with wgu624 router. Go figure.

Tech support was just about as helpful as your next door neighbor. Netgear outsources to India, and the guy after trying to BS me into believing that 800mhz cpu is not in the range of P3 class of cpus, told me to just return the card.

Shop around before you commit to Netgear.

Update:

The card still causes CPU bottlenecks. Nowhere in the range of 40-70% but when turned off, games run faster, dvd's play without skipping, and general cpu usage is in the range of 2-4%. When using this adapter its in the range of 10-20%.

And just for the extra fun, before i uninstalled the card completely - i was getting 1-2 bluescreens a day with WG311T as the cause of the failure.

Don't buy this.
If i could update the rating it would be 1 star.
