Trendnet Wireless N-Draft PC Card
REVIEW

Trendnet Wireless N-Draft PC Card

The Trendnet Wireless N-Draft PC Card seems like a compelling choice for your notebook PC, but we recommend waiting until the 802.11n spec is finalized before choosing an adapter.

REVIEW

Buffalo AirStation Nfiniti wireless notebook adapter

While the Buffalo AirStation Nfiniti notebook adapter made a good showing in mixed-mode throughput testing, we still think it's too early to invest in Draft N technology.

REVIEW

D-Link RangeBooster N 650 notebook adapter

While the D-Link duo performed admirably overall compared to its draft N competition, we were unimpressed with how it measured up to the promise of 802.11n.

REVIEW

Belkin N1 Wireless Notebook Card

The Belkin N1 adapter is a little better than the competition, but that's not saying much. Hold off on buying Draft N networking equipment for now.

Linksys WPC54GX4
REVIEW

Linksys WPC54GX4

If you plan to sit within 10 feet of your WRT54GX4 router, you'll get satisfying throughput. But if you want an adapter that's faster than standard 802.11g, opt for the Belkin Pre-N, which shows more consistent performance.

Linksys WPC300N Notebook Adapter
REVIEW

Linksys WPC300N Notebook Adapter

Solid maximum throughput is not nearly enough to make us recommend the Draft N-based Linksys WPC300N. Sit tight to see how the other Draft N gear fares.

Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Notebook Card
REVIEW

Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Notebook Card

The Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Notebook Card can't compete with another member of Belkin's wireless-adapter family, the Pre-N PC Card, but it compares decently with other pre-802.11n/MIMO adapters and kills the plain 11g competition.
