    price is quite good I reckon, just dunno what chipset it uses and whether it's supported by 64bits Linux.

    Ordered a pair this afternoon, hope it could be stabler than my current ASUS WL138G under 64bits Linux.

  •  

    Yes I forgot to put that in

    Same Chipset on Both - TNETW1130GVF

    Supported natively in a lot of Linux Builds I believe (later Kernals)

  •  

    No WPA encryption?

    •  

      Yes it does WPA and WPA2

      Originally werent features in the devices when those old brochures printed.

      •  

        Cool, thanks.

        •  

          Just wanted to add that I got the cards today, installed it, and it's running like a dream. The software is easy to use too, and WPA2 is supported. My only wish is that I hadn't wasted so much time with the Belkin piece of junk that this card is replacing - the Belkin drivers are just horrible and that's when they actually work (99% of the time, they don't).

          Thanks for the deal!

    +1 great deal, great company - bought a couple of modems/WLAN adapters from here and they were pleasant transactions all the time. The refurb OPEN Networks (Billion rebaged) is worth looking at too if you want ADSL/VoIP/WLAN all in one.

    No affiliation just a happy customer :)

  •  

    why so cheap though?

    •  

      Literally have 100's

      Also Wireless N will be ratified soon.

      •  

        ok, cool.

        I have ADSL2+ internet, what kind of speeds would i get if i used this with my modem?

        •  

          The same ADSL2+ speed as you would be getting now. It is not going to make your Internet connection any faster, as you will still be constrained by the speed your modem connects/syncs at. However your connection between your PC/laptop & the router (I am assuming you have a wireless router) will be UP TO 54Mbps.

          •  

            so it wont make it any slower? that is what i was worried about.

            thanks.

            •  

              ADSL2 can probably go at a maximum of 20Mbps (if you are next door to the exchange), the card is rated at 54Mbps, however keep in mind that if you are too far away from you Wireless Access Point with this card, you could be affected.

              •  

                ADSL2 syncs at a max of 12Mbps and ADSL2+ syncs at a max of 24Mbps. Factors such as distance to exchange, quality of copper, RIM etc will affect the speed you sync at.

                JPOWER - Without knowing what you are using now, it is hard to say if it will be slower or faster. Put it this way, if you are currently connected to your router via a network cable, it is very likely that you will be connected at 100Mbps.

    should keep my old machine going in the spare room! At this price I give it the thumbs up!

  •  

    Sorry, quick question. Where you can select the bundle, there are two options - "With OPEN302W", and "With 2nd OPEN302W", both an extra $2.05. What's the difference between choosing the two?

    EDIT: Nevermind, just read a little closer and I misread the options - they're actually different products.

  •  

    EXPIRED?

      While stock lasts? Maybe

    Anyone got these working with Windows Vista x64? Can't seem to find drivers for them.

    It installed on my other computer running Windows XP x86 fine :)

    •  

      Try the xp x64 drivers. Not sure if the same, but the 32 bit xp drivers are the ones that work on vista through device manager(Using windows Zero config, not the utility).

      •  

        Didn't work. Tried letting the Device Manager search for the drivers online and via the CD and it didn't find any suitable drivers.

        …unless the xp x64 drivers aren't on the CD and are on the internet somewhere…
