Linksys WMP54GS Wireless PCI Adapter with SpeedBooster
The Linksys WMP54GS Wireless PCI Card with SpeedBooster incorporates the next generation of Wireless-G. In standard Wireless-G (802.11g) mode, the Card can connect to wireless networks at an incredible 54Mbps. With Linksys new SpeedBooster technology enabled, your "real-world" wireless network performance increases by up to 35%! Unlike other speed-enhancing technologies, SpeedBooster is 802.11 compliant, fully compatible with standard Wireless-G, and a "good neighbor" to other wireless devices and technologies, using a single 2.4GHz channel as specified by the official wireless standard. And, unlike other technologies, with SpeedBooster you'll see an overall speed improvement even when running a mixed network of SpeedBooster and regular Wireless-G devices.
For added versatility, it can also interoperate with all the 11Mbps Wireless-B (802.11b) products found in homes, businesses, and public wireless hotspots around the country. In any mode, your wireless communications are protected by industrial-strength Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) encryption, so your data stays secure.

WMP54GS PCI CARD Larry S. Albrecht (Le Claire, IA) July 18, 2008
No complaints about the card, easy installation and set up. Does the job fine from second floor to basement in an 1800 square foot home. Amazon's delivery was, as always, timely and trouble free.
Great with my HTPC C. Skipper "scooter girl" (Durham, NC USA) December 11, 2009
I got this card to install in my new HTPC so I wouldn't need to run a network cable all the way into the living room. Loaded Windows 7 Home Premium and never had to install the software for the card - it saw it right away and connected to my Linksys wireless router which is located in the master bedroom. Gets a great signal too. I've been streaming movies to the PC over the internet and had no degradation or loss of signal.
REPLACEMENT T. Yeates (los angeles, ca) November 20, 2009
My 8 year old card took forever to connect to my wireless router. Now i turn the computer on - and I'm connected. It works great. The compture and router are about 15 feet apart.
Wireless network adapter D. Brown "beenass" (Ohio) November 23, 2008
This was easy to install and works very well. It is located upstairs from the router and the signal strength is not the strongest but is acceptable and I have no complaints. The price was resonable.

Our Linsky broadband router has been in use for a year. It provides high-speed service and has proven to be completely problem-free. Halleluiah! No wires! Just a cute little antenna on the back of our second desktop computer!
