5 Star Review   By member ecnal_la - Oct 30, 2003   

Strengths: Easy installation. Plenty of flexibility.

Weakness: None so far.

I am new to setting up a network, let alone a wireless one. The task seemed daunting at first, and the new terminology left me wondering if I could do it. Install and set up was straightforward for basic installation. Then I tried for more sophisticated stuff like remotely controlling my base PC. Was a little tricky at first, but managed to get it working just fine. NO nearby hot spots, so I have not tried its mobility away from home, but I will update once I have the chance.

4 Star Review   By member m5 - Feb 28, 2003   

Strengths: Simple installation, nice configuration software, very happy with connection speed & signal strength

Weakness: Not specific to the Netgear, but wireless is a battery killer! The Netgear website navigation is non-intuitive, but everything needed for support is there.

I had no trouble installing & setting up the MA701 on my Intermec 6651, which runs on Windows Handheld PC 2000. Very happy with the performance for the price.

5 Star Review   By member ee_man - Dec 16, 2002   

Strengths: Trivially easy to install on a dell axim pocketpc, great reception

Weakness: slightly bulky form factor

Haven't had a chance to check battery life with it, but so far drain does not appear too bad. Setup was incredibly easy. Now I just need to figure out how to get realone mobile to work from behind a NAT firewall...

1 Star Review   By member Uruguayo - Nov 30, 2002   

Strengths: Netgear has really improved tech support... Wait time on a saturday night was only a few seconds!! Installation was simple, complete with paper documentation. A real improvement over old netgear :)

Weakness: Even though this card could be good for some palmtops(power mgmt, good size), it won't work (as is stated) on a CE 2.11 device. No green light, no hardware recognition.. It's kinda ugly too...

I own a Cassiopeia E-100 CE2.11 Palm-size PC. In the store, I selected this netgear card because of it's stated compatibility and power management features. It's a nice looking card- somewhat slimmish...easy to hold. Although the setup program seems to install correctly under both 'palmtop' and 'pocket' choices, neither of the two's configuration utilities are able to recognize the card (which has been correctly powered and placed). With this card, if you can return it, buy it (however, check the restocking fee!). It may be a nice card for you. Unfortunately, I don't know, since it doesn't work on my E-100. The 802.11b CF card is a quickly evolving category, so have fun trying out many brands. When you're done, post a review! Help everyone out! :)
