The upshot is that this card is a good deal and works in Linux.
Another thing: it's 100% functional with linux, and the drivers on the CD work with Windows 7.
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.
-Requires drivers provided by manufacturer not the provider.
-Need hardwired connection to download said drivers
-Takes awhile to integrate into windows 7 systems.
-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.
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.
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.

I love these Sabrent network cards for Linux. In Ubuntu, they work first time, every time.Published 13 months ago by Richard
Good that, I know a thing or two about computers. After setup had to probably install software to get it to work. Also setup is not simple but you have to have patience. Read morePublished 16 months ago by ASEGJDLKDF
