Here are the reviews from epinions. Have been considering a router and card for my parents as a Christmas gift, so thanks for the heads up :thumbs:

EDIT: Summary in one user's words:
Discouraging reviews at all sites I have visited.
The router appears to drop connections often, and I'll be its a result of interference with some local device, but proably not worth the risk :2cents:

What the H3LL language are you speaking and can someone translate it?? or did you forget it was on and let your cat walk down the keyboard???
:lol:

Quick translation of industry-specific info:
802.11g == IEEE specification calling out the requirements for any product claiming to deliver a particular bandwidth of network availability (among other features) through radio receivers between the client and access points.

4-port router == Devices used mainly to split a network connection into multiple, usable connections. Specifically, a router ensures the data is sent to the right recipient connection (as opposed to a hub).

USB == Universal Serial Bus. Becoming the standard for hot-swappable device connectivity to a computer. USB2.0 is the most current version widely available, which has a higher data transfer rate than the initial version.

PCI 802.11g adapter == A wireless card that installs into a PCI slot on the motherboard of a desktop computer that meets the 802.11g standards as noted above. This allows the computer to serve as a client on a wireless network.

Belkin == One of about a dozen major wireless device manufacturers.

PCMCIA == Personal Computer Memory Card International Association. Effectively an adapter for laptops since the motherboard on laptops lack PCI connections due to space limitations. Typically PCMCIA is used for modems or network connectivity cards.

Hope that helps :D
