Linksys Wireless-N PCI Adapter

  1. Has anyone used the Linksys Wireless-N PCI Adapter? It's an internal, that
    plugs into the PCI bus of your computer.

    It plugs into the computer's PCI bus? Maybe that's why it's called a
    PCI Adapter... ya think?

  4. No, I have not, but it's just a wireless adapter, and all adapters are
    pretty similar in functionality.

    Do you have a question regarding a problem or how to use it?

    I have it, and it is great.
    But other brands probably would work just as well.

  6. Good to hear. Hopefully your feedback will help others when making a
    decision on which brand and model to choose.

  7. Natéag,

    I meant to add that I hope it also helps the original poster, but then
    again, based on his post, I'm not sure if he had a problem or not with the
    NIC.

    Cheers!

  8. Hi
    Wireless is about signal propagation.
    Place the system so that it is High and away from the wall so it would not
    be stifled between the Case and the Wall.

    As I wrote it works flawlessly. That may be due to the antenna,
    which is lets say, gigantic.

  12. No, not really, at least not with wireless, if that's what you mean? From
    what it says at that link, it can send/receive data on two different bands
    simultaneously, but I would assume to get this to work, you'll need a Dlink
    card that supports their implementation.

    If you want to use both bands with the same PC you would need 2 PC wireless
    cards. I believe that there are download applications that will use two
    cards at the same time to reduce download time. AFAIK a more common use of
    the dual functionality is to support two different wireless client
    concurrently.

  15. Yes, I know that. I meant with High-Definition, and other media, answering
    your question as to whether I've worked with it or not.

    As for wireless, I've implemented multiple Cisco APs using AD and GPO
    Certificate Autoenrollment with WPA2. Matter of fact, I wrote a paper on it.
    And for video, we used a third party product to handle video conferencing,
    with their own bridge, etc, and the clients (wired and wireless) simply used
    the client side app.

    But to answer your specific question, no, I haven't used Dlink's
    implementation.
