- Love this card!
This card is awesome! Plugged it in, turned it on and it worked immediately, have had no issues at all. The card is connected a computer the floor below my modem with no problems....more info
- Not Worth It
This product constantly connects and disconnects every two seconds. I have an HP and the connector plates don't line up either. Every two seconds the included program refreshes the network list and connects and disconnects. It does not work....more info
- Good wireless card
I'm satisfied with this card. It gets pretty good reception. Compared to Medialink wireless USB adapater on the same machine, this performed far better and maintained consistent signal strength throughout. I've only used this card for a few weeks now, so we'll see if it lasts. But so far, a very solid performer.
The only downside I've observed so far is the cable to the antenna is on the short side. It was barely long enough for me to put the antenna on top of my desktop, and nowhere else. I think this issue is not unique to this card - common to this type of wireless cards - it does take up some space (unlike other cards where you have antenna directly connected to the card), and it's not easy to hide it. ...more info
- Great Product!
I just moved to a new house I am renting and the woman next door I met said she had a wireless network over there. I tried to access the signal and was frustrated because I got very spotty reception and had to restart often with my laptop to regain a little signal strength. I also couldn't use my PC because I didn't have any hardware to access the wireless signal. First I got a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander WRE54G and just plugged it into the wall socket and pressed down and held one button for a few seconds and the blue lights came on. What a big difference! I was up and running at lightning speed with my little Dell notebook. I, after getting the signal boosted, bought this Super G 802.11BG Wireless Pci 64 Bit Xp Compliant Turbo Mode from here for peanuts after reading the reviews. WOW! I never thought I would be as satisfied with a wireless connection as I was with a direct line into my machine. I am up and running at pro lightning speed and the signal is very strong and steady. This thing was so easy to install and using the software was a no brainer as well. You can do it with a little common sense unlike other software I have had to really study carefully. This product for me is a solid 5 star item. I recommend it with enthusiasm....more info
- Poor gaming performance
Replaced a USB 802.11G adapter that would need to be reinserted everytime the PC game up, other than that was a solid connection even it had 3/5 bars.
This one gets max/excellent connection but fails in gaming. It frequently causes lag spikes every 30-90 seconds, which the USB adapter did not.
Tried many channels and options so it's definately the card....more info
I originally purchased the WMP300N by Linksys for just under $100. I was feed up with dropped connections and poor performance so I decided to try another wireless devise. This product was a fraction of the price and preformed considerably better. This a great value. ...more info
- No Problems
Easy to install. I used the reference drivers from RALink. I installed it in an XP machine running Sp2. Signal is 100% through a couple of walls and a door. My router is a Linksys WRT54GL 1.1 running DD-WRT. I would buy this again....more info
- Wireless delight
After reading the reviews on this item, I still ordered it with some fear and trepidation, planning on tapping my knowledgable son-in-law to bail me out. Not needed at all. Opened the box, plugged it in, hooked up the antenna and Windows XP did the rest. Connected within minutes of booting up the computer. It is working just fine and I am very pleased. ...more info
- MSI Super Strong Signal easy install
I think my title says it all. Open the computer case pull the blank, insert the card, screw it in and turn it on. I used the disk and immediately got a long list of signals from up to two blocks away. It will use the strongest open/ unprotected signal. Someone elses, if your router is WEP enabled.
You have to use the MSI Super G utility to add your WEP code and save it so it will use your signal as the default. Then you won't have to input your WEP code each
time you boot up.
Very strong and fast connection 100 ft. away behind doors and walls. Very happy with this device....more info
- Pay attention: If your operating system is more recent than XP (ig, VIsta or Windows 7), read this.
As you see in the description, this card is designed for XP users. I am not sure why but I read some reviews that said the card was working for Vista as well. It it works for vista, it must work for Windows 7, which is what I have. After the installation, I learned that MSI indeed designed this card for XP users primarily. It's not impossible to use this with Vista, W7 OS. Just follow these steps. I've done the research already and I am generous to share it here.
The Wireless PCI driver that comes with the card will NOT work for Vista+, so don't even bother with it- it will not recognize the card with it installed. Put the CD into the fireplac and burn it. Instead use the Ralink driver
I have never used the MSI driver but I heard Ralink's is better so even if have XP, try Ralink and see how that works out for you. I read from other reviews that it recognizes the signals much better.
Hope this helped.
Lastly, stay away from netgear products.
- Works as advertised
Recently recieved Super G wireless card. Simply plugged it in and had it running in minutes. It works great, have it upstairs and runs quick and provides a reliable connection....more info
- Works as Advertised
There's not much to say; It works great, no problem with install. Strong connection between a router downstairs and the PC upstairs. I'm running Wireless B with a cable modem and it's always fast. Good buy!...more info
- Super G 802.11BG Wireless Pci 64 Bit Xp Compliant Turbo Mode
I ordered this just over a month ago, and I recieved it in the time frame that I was told. It is great! My computer works great with it and it was really easy to install! I have never installed one before, but I wanted to try and do it myself and not have to get someone else to do it! It was so easy to do and once installed, I downloaded the disk and it was ready to go...it was really quite simple,and I am far from a computer expert. So if I can do it, so can you! I'm so glad I got it and I will probably be purchasing a couple more in the near future for my kids' computers too!!...more info
- Works like a charm!
I have tried a long time to connect my computer, which is a back-room, first floor addition to the house (outside the original brick wall), to my wireless network, which originates on the opposite side of the house on the second floor. The D-Link USB adapter I started with, worked fairly well but would occasionally drop the signal. It died suddenly, so I replaced it with a Trendnet USB adapter which, if it found the network, would connect weakly then disconnect shortly thereafter. Not a viable option. I spent a little more money for a Trendnet PCI wireless card (model# TEW-423PI). It never found a network let alone connected. Then after reading the reviews, I tried this MSI card for the same price as the Trendnet card. It consistently finds multiple networks around here and consistently receives a strong signal from my router (~70%). I can now reliably connect to the internet without it dropping the signal and could not be more pleased.
The antenna cable on this card is 2 feet long--long enough to extend from the card in the lowest slot of my pc tower to sit on top of the tower about 2/3 of the way toward the front. The antenna is putty colored--but you can't have everything....more info
- A Good Value
The MSI wireless G was a snap to install. We had a little trouble logging it back on a few times, but issues were more user error than any problems with the devise. Since the wireless router is on the first floor and this computer is on the third floor, I am very pleased with the reliability of of the connection achieved with the MSI wireless PCI card....more info
This was my first wireless network setup, this adapter worked
flawlessly. I was "up and running" in less then 5 minutes and this includes the time I spent installing the card.
Don't waste your money buying something more expensive thinking it will
be better. Signal strength is fantastic. I am picking up multiple wireless networks in my neighborhood and the homes it my area are minimum
150 feet apart. If I had to find any complaint, it would be that there doesn't seem to be a way to save your encryption string if you use WEP but, the more I use it, I actually think that even this may be a plus, kind of like having to enter your password every time you log on.
- Great Product
The card worked great with my version of Vista. I had a little trouble installing it at first but once i got past it it works great....more info
- Good Wireless Card for Vista 64-Bit
Installing this wireless card was a breeze. It gets good range and most importantly it is compatible with Vista 64-Bit.
The included CD doesn't have the Vista 64-Bit drivers, so you have to get them off of MSI's website. However, they are easy to find and quick to install.
Overall, I would recommend this card for anyone having trouble finding a card that is compatible with 64-Bit XP or Vista. So far the card has been well worth the cheap price of $24.99....more info
- Easy install, works great
I moved to a location where wireless internet was all that was available and so I needed a wireless adapter for my desktop PC. This product was quick and easy to install and enabled me to be on line immediately. The price was very reasonable and the product works as described....more info
- Why pay more?
I actually purchased a pair of these about a year ago for my home WIFI network from a different site. Since that site no longer has these in stock, I got the next pair (this time for my church) from Amazon. I have had 0 issues with these cards - can't remember a single time where I lost connectivity honestly. Don't think I could ask for more, especially at the price point. Great buy!...more info
- Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP1 easy install
After reading past reviews, I was prepared to have to download special 64-bit drivers to make this card work with Vista 64-bit. But they weren't needed: Vista 64 automatically got the drivers from Windows Update, and I was connected to my WPA network in minutes. Never needed the MSI installation disk or the drivers I'd downloaded.
Card itself works find, excellent signal strength. The little antenna is fine, although I may wind up velco-ing it to the case....more info
- Great Product!
I bought the Belkin USB wireless adapter before buying this one and had to return the Belkin one as it just wouldn't work. Stay clear of wireless USB adapters is my advice.
This one works really well. I only had to change the wireless channel on the software to get it running properly. Great signal strength despite there being a solid wall and 15 feet to the hub....more info
