At least when paired with the Netgear WGT624 WAP/Router this card does indeed have a significant farther range than for instance the DLINK 614+ was was currently using. I can go from one corner of the house downstairs to a bedroom at the opposite corner of the house upstairs, on a waterbed at almost full speed (this gave the DLINK some trouble).
It also comes with a nifty utility that does a better job than Windows with settings and statistics (like actual network throughput).
One minor issue may be with how hot this card gets which is always a concern with a laptop. To the cards credit there are settings for Power Save and Transmit Power which may help.

I bought this card for an older Dell Inspiron 7000 running Win98 SE.

If you buy this card, I recommend that you first go to the [...] website, click on the support tab, choose Downloads, highlight the WG511T Adapter and download the latest firmware driver revision, ver 3.9. When you unzip it, it has the driver file, the user guide and the install guide. Read the Install Guide before you do anything.

Don't bother with the bundled CD-ROM. Install the downloaded driver from the setup file and reboot, as it requests. When I ran the driver setup, I got a general protection fault message. I cancelled it and the setup seemed to continue just fine. After reboot the driver database was set up in Windows. At that point, I turned the laptop completely off and then inserted the card.

Upon bootup again, Windows found the card and loaded the proper drivers. It again directed a reboot. After that, the card was powered up and began searching for my network.

Be sure that you know the proper settings for your router. If it's set not to broadcast your SSID, then you must tell the Netgear card the name of your network in the Netgear Smart Wizard that controls the card. Also, if you're using WPA-PSK security on your router, you have to select the Advanced Security portion of the card setup and manually type in your Shared Key.

After I did that, The card immediately locked onto my network. I tried to open an internet connection, but it failed to do so after the "Detecting Proxy Settings" message had been displayed for awhile. I went into Internet Tools on the browser and reset all of the security settings to the defaults, closed the browser and reloaded it. It then found the internet connection and worked flawlessly.

I purchased this in a bundle with a Netgear WGT 624 router (the router to replace an router that had stopped working). The router/card package were deeply discounted at brick and mortar store (hint: "that was easy"), so I figured it would be a nice way to upgrade my laptop's wireless data transfer rate (at least while working at home with Netgear's proprietary higher data rate format).

Set up and install were trouble-free, and the card immediately recognized my network (and many of my neighbors') and was connected right away. I've since used it in multiple hot spots (802.11g and 802.11b), and it has detected and connected with no problems.

I seem to go through Netgear routers like some people go through light bulbs, but I've enjoyed great success with their wireless adapters (both PCMCIA, PCI and USB interfaces). I'm enjoying the faster data rates at home and the ease of connection on the road.

In the world of wireless products (routers and adapters): just like with cars, anybody can sell you a lemon. There are complicated hardware and software environments and you never know what's going to work or not until you plug it in...this one was a winner for my needs.

I put this card in my wife's Dell Inspiron 4000 Laptop. It replaced a NetGear 802.11b card. Worked great! Then the Blue Screens of Death started. I have tried different combos of using Window's XP to control the card (against recommendations but is more stable) and using different versions of the software for both the card and NetGear's controlling software to no avail. I am now down to the last attempt, using Window's updated software for the card with Windows controlling the card. We'll see.

Pros- Incredible range. Shows 2 more networks in my neighborhood then my Centrino notebook. Super fast page loading.

Cons- Crashes the computer. It causes memory dumps that corrupts running programs. The NetGear newsgroups show that it is a known problem with their cards and customer service doesn't have a fix. Do the research yourself. One thing that MAY be the reason for the crashes is that some were using an XP upgrade from ME, which this laptop also has.

But try it for yourself. It is a great card when its not crashing the system. There are so many different configuations it may work. If not, return it. Good Luck!

i am running suse 9.3 on an older sony desktop that has a pcmcia slot. i was using an older 802.11b card but wanted to upgrade to WPA-PSK so started looking for a G card that would work with suse. searching the internet i found that cards with the atheros chipset are supported without use of third party "wrappers" and windows drivers. i inserted the card and went to YaST configuration and the card was recognized! i turned MAC address filtering and encryption off in my router. this eliminates 2 variables and makes getting set up easier. after i made sure i was connecting to the internet i turned MAC filtering and encryption on. so far no problems. the card gets great reception. my router is an smc barricade G. i have a motorola usb wireless access point hooked to an old hp desktop and my mac mini using airport extreme wireless. all work great together.
