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 4.2 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Allowed Win 10 upgrade to proceed The wifi on this card works very well but as half expected the Bluetooth does not work at all. This card was purchased to allow a Samsung Notebook RV511 to be successfully upgraded to Windows 10. The standard card fitted by Samsung was causing the Win10 upgrade to hang on reboot. Many users reported the Bluetooth part of the card did not work except on approved laptops so I was not surprised to find this was true. 27 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Allows Samsung RF series laptops to upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10 This was used to replace a Broadcom card fitted in a Windows 7 Samsung RF710 laptop which was non-compatible with Windows 10. Fitting is very simple, after opening the case of the laptop, instructions and video for which are shown on the web. Windows 10 then loads without crashing, the drivers were not found automatically though and needed down loading manually from Intel. This should be a solution for upgrading the range of Samsung laptops previously not compatible with Windows 10. 15 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worthy upgrade Easy installation and works without any configuration. Only issue found is my laptop occasionally takes a while to post on boot. Enabling fast startup and hibernation in Windows 8 seems to fix this issue. 28 August 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not for Acers After much difficulty I found this product was incompatible with Acer laptops. This is because it is not in the BIOS 'whitelist'. I have never come across this before because I always build my own rigs. 02 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great wi-fi card upgrade This Wi-Fi card has given a new lease of life to my old (treasured) Medion akoya netbook. Linking to my BT Home-hub5, I am now able to access 5MHz Wi-Fi, giving me a Wi-Fi speed of an amazing 867 Mbps (previously 54 Mbps on 2.4 MHz, and also gives Blue-tooth capability. Downloaded the drivers from the Intel support website - no bother. Fitting was an issue - replacing a full height card with this half height version. solution was to source an adapter bracket (£3.99 via Amazon) see below. Perhaps Scan could offer this in the future. JUSTOP Half to Full Height Mini PCI Express (PCI-E) Card Bracket Adapter £3.99 from Amazon. This comes with the tiny screws to fasten the card to the bracket, but reuse the original (bigger) screw to fasten the card and bracket to the motherboard. It's a bit of a fiddle - but well worth it. Original two antennae just press on to the small press-stud type terminals on the card. Would have put the card into my new 6 week old acer i7 laptop, but bottled out in case I damaged anything, so upgraded the Akoya instead, which already has SSD! This is a must upgrade to give ac Wi-Fi capability if your router will deliver. Pleased customer - Tony Sankey 11 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by wifi card does a great job I bought this product because my factory fitted item kept dropping out and was very annoying . I've had this card about a month now and it's been fantastically reliable. ..... A great purchase 12 November 2014

This network card needs two short cables to attach to antennae. Are they included in the box, or must they be bought sepparately? If so, does scan sell the cables?

Answer: 
No, the card does not come with cables at least not when I bought it. You can use the existing cables in the laptop or get some from other websites like ebay for about £5.

Answer: 
The following might be incorrect but then it might be correct. Buyer be-aware.

Certain motherboards [usually EXPENSIVE MBs in order not to make them STRATOSPHERICALLY expensive for those buyers who do not require Wi-Fi/BT] have the facility to accept "mini pCI-e" Wi-Fi/BT cards like these to offer them onboard Wi-Fi/BT capability.

And which MBs are these? You do not need to ask should your motherboard has no such a facility. Surely ....

As mentioned by another reviewer, you can buy PCI-e cards that will incorporated these mini-PCI-e WiFi/BT cards to add them to motherboards that do not have an existing mini-PCI-e slot.

The answer to the question then is, "YES". And therefore these cards are not only for "Laptops". They are good Kommie/Socialistic cards for everyone.
