Strengths: easy installation great range support external antenna
The Orinoco gold card is as good as its reputation. I use it with my Fujitsu tablet where low power consumption is most important. The range easily exceeds any card that I've used.

Strengths: Great Signal Strength, East to install and works great with external antennas!
Weakness: A little flimsy but still very sturdy
This little card is a very very good one. Signal strength is awesome and the card is built like a rock. Im currently using it with a external antenna which makes it a very very powerful combo!

Strengths: Great signal strength, solid connection, easy to use.

I went through three other network cards and bridges before someone recommended that I purchase a card with the Orinoco chipset. That was the best move I could have made.

I went through three other network cards and bridges before someone recommended that I purchase a card with the Orinoco chipset. That was the best move I could have made. This card has been so reliable I wouldn't bother with the cheap brands with fancy rebates any more. I get full bars on my connection at work when others are only getting 1 or 2. The software is easy to use but could be refined a little. It works well with XP SP2 as long as you turn off the Windows Wireless Network software. You would be wasting your time with any other network card.

Strengths: phenomenal feature set, self-detecting drivers, external antenna connector, jewel case, and 3 year warranty.
Weakness: none whatsoever.
i've gone through several other cards and have yet to find one with as good a range and feature set as this one. i had this card running in two minutes after simply plugging it into the slot, and the jewel case is a nice touch, particularly if you're on the go.

Strengths: Good range. Good software compatibility. Overall, works very well.
I got this card a month and a half ago on a recommendation from a friend, and it has worked great for everything I've needed it for. I can pick up a signal from anywhere in my house, and have had no problems using the card. I would definitely recommend it.
