If you make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless card you should have no problems with use of the card in windows XP.

"I have used this card for a number of years already and I must say that it has not let me down. "I bought this card about a week ago and I have used it with a notebook that is about four years old. The installation was ok. "Had this card connected to a Dell inspiron 1150 in less than 15 minutes. So far no troubles and the reception is good.

Frequent drop outs.. Seems pretty much useless unless you like having to switch your wireless card on and off to get it to get a connection..

"The connection speed is great.I havent had a single problem yet.This card is very thin so can break very easy,most wireless cards are flimsy anyways.

Ive been using this router for a few months, and am already looking for something else. pre N technology is now around. I have setup over 15 of these routers and have had nothing but problems. 75% of them consistently reboot themselves.

RangeMax Wireless PC Card

What is RangeMax?

WPN511
NETGEARs RangeMax extends your wireless network coverage up to 10 times that of standard 802.11g due to an advanced Smart MIMO (Multi-In, Multi-Out) technology that incorporates seven intelligent internal antennas in a wireless router. The antennas continuously scan your home or office, automatically sensing obstacles and electronic interference, then dynamically adjust the wireless signal to compensate and maintain a clear connection. RangeMax Wireless PC Card (WPN511), PCI Adapter (WPN311) and USB 2.0 Adapter (WPN111) are optimized for use with RangeMax Wireless Router (WPN824) so everyone enjoys high-speed connections in your home or office---with virtually no dropouts or dead spots.
