Date Issued: 19th Jun 2008

WiFi is a wonderful thing. You can take your laptop anywhere in your house and access the Internet, or access your network from the garden. However, it does introduce the grim possibility of somebody else doing exactly the same, without you ever knowing. This guide seeks to make you aware of various security terms and ideas associated with wireless networking and what you should consider when setting up a wireless network.

Home Networking
Date Issued: 26th Oct 2006

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.

Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Useful This device is very useful for desktops that don’t have built in wireless capability and have a spare PCIe X1 slot. You can 'stick' the antenna unit to the side of the PC too, or any surface with metallic properties, which makes it very easy to place and keep track of. With the antenna being on the outside it gives the unit a great chance of getting a great signal and you get good connection speeds generally and supports all of the current Wi-Fi standards that one would expect. The antenna is also fairly small and folds over if you have stuck on the side of a unit, or stands up on its stand if you have it on a flat surface, it is small enough to put on the desktop without getting in the way or requiring a lot of space. The only possible issue for some folks may be that the cable lengths could be a touch short for some folks, depending on where their unit is. Also the BT4.x inclusion is just fantastic as it gives any desktop PCs an all in one solution of Wi-Fi/BT in a single unit. All of the info for the product can be found on the Gigabyte website where you can download the latest drivers for Win7/8/8.1/10 in both x32 and x64 flavours. All in all a very investment in you are looking to get Wi-Fi/BT setup on a unit that currently does not have such capability. Of course this is even more useful to folks who have a machine with a spare slot and only have USB2, as a USB Wi-Fi dongle running through USB2 will of course show as connected at X speed but will be limited by the USB2 bus capabilities. This basically mean you may get 867Mbps connection between the device and router, but are not actually going to get that amount of throughput as USB2 is limited to a maximum of 480Mbps and this is for the whole bus so if you have other devices plugged in, such as keyboards, mice, memory sticks etc., your USB Wi-Fi dongle will have to share the bandwidth. Of course this doesn’t matter on a unit with USB3, even so this is still a solid choice. 12 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product An excellent product, sensibly priced and efficiently delivered --- as always. 07 May 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works great for Wi-Fi, but Bluetooth has issues Bought this product as the combination of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on a single PCI slot seemed ideal. Wi-Fi worked fine on Windows7, very easy to setup. However, what I didn't read until I opened the box was that for Bluetooth compatibility, it requires a spare internal USB header on the motherboard, which I don't have. So if you need Bluetooth, check that you have a spare header. 15 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad I found this I ignored advice to use a mains ethernet link to get internet reception on a large box PC and I'm glad I did. Its wifi range is amazing, picking up internet two floors above the router and on the opposite side of the house. Speed is also impressive, over 700 Mbps. It also performs well on bluetooth over long distances. Not cheap but worth every penny. 09 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great choice for WiFi, bluetooth is a bonus. I chose this as I had no WiFi or Bluetooth in my pc build and wanted dual band. Easy installation on Asus H97-Pro motherboard. WiFi works really well. I'm on BT Infinity 38Mb Home Hub 5 and speed is the same as when on Ethernet, Bluetooth pairs with my desktop speaker no problem. 06 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to install, and easy to set up Very good Wi-Fi speed and plenty of bandwidth. I found the magnetic base on the ariel very usefull 24 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent dual band PCI card I was recently upgraded to 150Mb on my Virgin line. Which is pretty much what I get from 1 floor plus 1 room away. Excellent solid performer. Recommended. 23 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Now my desktop is free Had to get a new Bluetooth device as my USB Bluetooth device was not working with Windows 10 so decided to get this so I could get rid of the wire that was running along the floor in my bedroom and I must say I'm not disappointed with my purchase the wireless signal is 100% and the Bluetooth picks up other Bluetooth devices straight away and now I can use my Bluetooth headset again when watching movies late at night without disturbing other family members. 17 February 2016

Hello,

The Netgear CG3101D Router supports 802.11n, of which the PCIe WiFi Card supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac so they are fully compatible.

Answer: 
I can see no reason why not the router you mention supports Wi-Fi standards 802.11b/g and (Draft) 802.11n in 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz.

This unit can utilise any of those standards and if you check the list of standards supported by the unit: IEEE 802.11abgn, 802.11ac, 802.11d, 802.11e, 802.11i, 802.11h, 802.11w - you can see that it shows compatibility with your router.

Your performance of course may vary from other people’s experiences.

Just to note, I have not personally tried the uint with your listed router but would still say you should have no issues connecting to the router.

Best wishes...

Answer: 
It is REV 4.2 (At least the current one being sold is) and the one in the pic looks like a 4.2 version.

You can see the verions here at Gigabyte: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5660#ov

You will notice the differences in the verions by noticing that the 'white' section is a different shape in each REV.

Of course you can look on the part itself and it should say which REV if you have the part and just wondering what you have.

Best wishes.
