I bought this Sabrent 54Mbps wireless-g PCI card from BuyPCdirect through Amazon.com. I chose it because it was inexpensive and seemed to have everything that I was looking for in a wireless card. When I received the card, I installed it in the PC and installed the software provided on the small CD which came in the box with the card onto my computer. My PC was running the Windows XP SP2 operating system. However, the card installed ok, but then would lose the wireless signal every few minutes. The disconnecting and reconnecting to the network was slowly driving me crazy! I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software provided, but the same thing happened. I was going to return the card and purchase a Linksys card instead, since my wireless access point was a Linksys brand as well. I had even packaged the card and contacted the seller about a refund, when I decided to search for more drivers online. I came across a driver for the Ralink WMP-RT2561ST chipset (which is the actual chipset on the Sabrent PCI card) at this website [...]. I installed the card again and installed this new software onto my PC and the card worked like lightning. No more irritating dropouts, and it was getting a great signal from the wireless access point. I then used Windows Update to get the latest November 2008 driver and the card now works like a charm. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap, reliable PCI wireless card, but don't use the CD provided with the card.

I purchased this wireless card because it was cheap and Amazon said that it uses a Broadcom 4318 chipset, which I know works on Linux (the b43 driver in a vanilla kernel, since 2.6.24). When I recieved the card, and I inspected it, I found out that it's actually a different chipset (an RaLink RT2561). No worries, it still works on Linux, using the rt61pci driver.

From my lspci -v

00:09.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI
Subsystem: RaLink Device 2561
Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 17
Memory at cfff0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=32K]
Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
Kernel driver in use: rt61pci
Kernel modules: rt61pci

$ uname -a
Linux cat-in-the-hat 2.6.27-rc6-1ken #1 SMP Sun Sep 21 10:32:44 CDT 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

The upshot is that this card is a good deal and works in Linux.

This wireless network adapter will not leave you unsatisfied! Like many of Sabrent's products, it was inexpensive and high quality for the price. I had to buy it because my USB wireless network adapter was failing me, so I needed a reliable replacement for online quizzes. It was a quick, easy install into my PCI slot, and I was up and running in no time. I must say, it's MUCH faster and doesn't drop the signal nearly as much as my USB wireless g adapter. I'm typing this up using the free internet from my apartment complex a floor and many walls above me!

Another thing: it's 100% functional with linux, and the drivers on the CD work with Windows 7.

I purchased this for my sister, for a pc I was building for her. This seemed like a great middle ground wireless adapter. However, while I was careful with my purchased and did look at reviews. I didn't realize how bad it would be.
The drivers this comes with are completely useless. There is no point in even attempting to install them from the disk and use them. I went to the suggested website by other reviewers and downloaded some drivers from there and installed them that way. It also took awhile for the program to fully integrate and get working with windows 7. At first it almost didn't seem to be working. After a restart windows 7 was then legitimately taking over and telling me my network information and connection. Instead of the small program provided with the drivers.

-CONS-
-Requires drivers provided by manufacturer not the provider.
-Need hardwired connection to download said drivers
-Takes awhile to integrate into windows 7 systems.

-PROS-
-Once operational works fine. (Works like any windows 7 wireless laptop.) Meaning the controls are all basically in windows 7 once integrated properly.

-No notable issues so far.

I used this card for a workstation at the job. So far it works perfect. Installed it on an old 2007 Dell Isperion 478 Intel board. 3.4 Ghz Pentium 4 processor. Boss says it's communicatingwith the router perfectly...nice deal

This is an excellent Windows XP wifi card.
connects at 54 mbps (the 'G' model).
It never has any connection issues.
Netflix plays smoothly and automatically in HD.

At only 15 bucks... This is a great home streaming solution.

I would recommend this to anyone with Ubuntu who wants a wireless card and has an available PCI slot. Installation on Ubuntu 10.04 is as follows.

1. Turn off and unplug PC
2. Install the card in the PCI slot
3. Turn on PC
4. Select wireless access point from network connections

That's it. No mucking about about with modprobe, compiling drivers, etc. Just install the card and boot Ubuntu. There are also Windows drivers on a CD that came with it but I haven't tried those.
