For Windows users, this means that you MUST go to the website for Ralink (the manufacturer of the chipset) and download the drivers for the RT2860. Without those, the card will have very low signal strength, stop working after standby, etc...
Uses Ralink Chipset and Linux driver Rt2860sta .
And had full strength signal from a Linksys WRT54G router.
Then I tried the driver from Sabrent's site, its an older version of the driver(184.108.40.206), using the same directional antennas my signal is averaging 99-100%, and -65 - -50db.
Not bad for around $9 shipped, RALink needs to fix their newer drivers though.
The one problem I ran into (that cost me all of about 30 seconds) was that it would not install as is. I had to go into the files on the disc and find the raw setup file and run it in compatibility mode. Once I did that, my system recognized the card without issue. Overall I am a happy customer.
