Wireless-G is the upcoming 54Mbps wireless networking standard that's almost five times faster than the widely deployed Wireless-B (802.11b) products found in homes, businesses, and public wireless hotspots around the country - but since they share the same 2.4GHz radio band, Wireless-G devices can also work with existing 11Mbps Wireless-B equipment. The new Wireless-G Notebook Adapter from Linksys has both standards built in, so you can connect your notebook to existing 802.11b infrastructure, and also the new screaming fast Wireless-G networks. The included Setup Wizard will walk you through configuring the adapter to your network's settings, step by step. Then just slide it into your notebook's PC Card slot and enjoy network access with your notebook computer, while retaining true mobility. Once you're connected, you can keep in touch with your e-mail, access the Internet, and share files and other resources such as printers and network storage with other computers on the network, wherever you wander. At home, you can surf the web or use instant messaging to chat with friends while sitting out on the patio.You'll also be able to connect with any of the growing number of public wireless hotspots springing up in coffee shops, airport lounges, hotels and convention centers. And as those hotspots upgrade to the new high-speed Wireless-G standard, you'll be ready to take advantage of the increased speeds. Get connected to current-standard 802.11b networks today, and be prepared for the future with the Wireless-G Notebook Adapter from Linksys.

Wireless networks are rapidly becoming more popular and coming down in price. Since they don't require cables, you can use the devices anywhere in an office or home, even out on the patio. There's no need to roll out an Ethernet network cable to each room of a house; you can network anywhere--without wires. Outside the home, wireless networking is available in hotspots at coffee shops, businesses, and airports--great when you're on the road and need to get some work done. For convenience, wireless networking is the answer.
Basically, a standard is a set of specifications for a device. All devices that follow a specific standard share operating characteristics, such as the radio frequency used and maximum data transfer speed.

Worked beautifully. Immediately popped up in the upper right corner, was recognized as an AirPort card and got me access (I had to use WPA Personal instead of WPA2, but hey, it works).
MORAL: If you are having install problems, update all your system drivers, check MS Update for latest OS updates, and go to Cisco-Linksys website for latest adapter driver updates then give the install another try.
This was offered by the seller as new and unopened in the original box for a very competitive price. Within three or four days received it and it was everything advertised. Once installed it immediately identified our network and once the password was entered it promptly connected. For the price it was a real bargain as plus it was new. Will continue to use this site to find and purchase old computer parts and equipment. It is things like this that keep customers happy.
I installed and reinstalled the software about 4 times. I also worked with their useless online support team over a period of about 5 days. On several occasions, the connection was severed. I can't be positive - but I think they just cut me off!
Well - I finally gave up and sent it back. BUT - I did find an adapter that worked! It's the AirLink101 AWLL6075 Wireless N Mini USB Adapter. It's small - but mighty!
When I installed it - the installation took awhile. I thought at first it had crashed and was just about to give up and restart when the software finished. If I remember correctly - it took about 15 minutes. FYI - my Win 2000 computer is old and slow - so the installation may go faster on your system. After it was finished, the computer found the wireless connection. I then installed the printer software (which also claimed to work on Win 2000 machines) and lo and behold - it worked!
Needless to say, I'll never purchase another Cisco-Linksys product again!!
