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...

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.

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...
