Excellent product. Installed on Windows 7 64-bit desktop and worked straight away. Agree with previous review though, don't bother with CD just dowload the latest drivers for your machine from Edimax.

very good for the price, just make sure you download the latest driver from Edimax befor installing this card, no need for the cd that comes with it seen as its 2 years out of date...

  Grand with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Literally just got this working with minimal hassle. Download the Win 7 driver package from Edimax, unpack the zip file but don't run anything yet. Install the PCI card, boot up, Win 7 won't recognise it yet. Run the Edimax install, select Driver Only and bosh. Sorted! Getting 4/5 on the signal strength and I live in a house with concrete walls.

I've now owned 4 of these pci cards, all for various computer builds. I have never had a problem with them, they have fairly good reciever strength, never fails, and the quality seems to be quite good. Many of the other budget wireless PCI cards seem to have problems and compatibility issues. With this it will work with all windows, including the latest windows 7. It will also work with all distributions of the latest linux kernel, as well as mac.

  Plug & Play with Ubuntu

Works flawlessly on Ubuntu 9.10! Plugged it in, switched the PC on and it connected straight away with a much better signal than the D-link USB adapter I've put up with for 5 years. Wish I'd bought it sooner!

best card i have ever had .

  Good card, doesn't allow remote desktop

The card always provided a good strength signal and hardly any packet loss. However, it did stop remote desktop working. This happened on the same pc with either an XP, Vista or Windows 7 build. I have now installed a Linksys card and remote desktop works.

  Worked Out of the Box - DID NOT USE THE INCLUDED CD DRIVER !

| | See all LPWilliams's reviews (1)

This WiFi card worked straight away for me and delivers the expected performance.

I use Windows XP and am always sceptical about using included software, even if they include drivers, as they will invariably be out of date and potentially cause more problems than solutions.

With this item alarm bells rang as the user guide not only instructs you to reject the Windows Plug'n'Play installation and instead install the CD software, but details using a dedicated wireless connection setup utility; this invites problems if you subsequently have connection problems and need technical support, since you are not using standard setup...

As Windows XP already deals with network connections itself I could see no benefit to circumnavigating it....

So I installed the card then, as the PC was connected to the Internet via Ethernet to my broadband router, allowed the resulting Plug'n'Play facility to find a driver.

Within seconds the card was installed as a 'Ralink Turbo Wireless LAN Card' with a driver date in 2008.

A few seconds later, without me doing anything, my wireless broadband router was displayed as available and after inputting my Network 'key' my PC was connected to the Internet wirelessly.

The entire process took about 45 seconds - GREAT !

  It just Works

| | See all Gilbear's reviews (2)

I have a dual boot system with two harddrive one with Ubuntu 9.04 and the other with Windows Vista. After installing the card i booted strait into Ubuntu and it worked strait away with no setup needed. With Windows Vista i had to use the disc that came with the card to set the card up after that it works no problem at all. I give this card 5 stars

  Comprehensive product

| | See all moblin's reviews (1)

This has everything I was looking for in a wireless card, compatible with Linux and Windows and even MAC OS X.

I can't vouch for performance on the MAC as i don't have one but this card has been 100% reliable for Windows XP SP2 and on Fedora Linux 11. Im not a huge fan of the bundled software for use on windows machines but there is an option to let windows zero configuration take charge so I am very happy with this product.
