      Do you actually need 108Mbit/sec? Unless you want faster networking between computers in your house, there's no real benefit because your broadband connection will only work at 16Mbit/sec at the very most.

      108Mbps is incredibly hard to achieve in a normal home environment. Even then it is only a 108 signal rate and the actual throughput will be much lower. Just a Marketing "con" really.

      With regard to your desire for more speed, if you post your router stats someone may be able to advise what you can do to improve things.

      Hi mate! I just got this adapter and I'm pretty much sure I read that it doesn't work at the full 108 mbps if you use Vista...

      It don't apply to me as I use XP but I'm sure I read it on netgear's website somewhere as I was trying to download the latest drivers.
