Setup and Installation
The mini CD-ROM included has driver packages for Vista and XP (x86 and x64). This means that it should also work in Windows 7 without any issues, as the Windows 7 driver model is very close to the Vista driver model. The installer is very straight forward and nothing much to talk about. Installing the Nubbin does require a restart to get the utility and Nubbin active.
After installation and the reboot you find a new utility working for you. This is probably one of the better wireless connection utilities I have worked with and shows a rather large amount of information as well as having more than a few options and tweaks for your Nubbin.
The Advanced tab lets you change the TX burst mode, TCP window sizes and to enable Fast Roaming.
Statistics is pretty self explanatory and is helpful to quickly show errors in transmission.
The WMM page allows you to enable, disable and setup advanced options for the WMM and WMM-PS options on the Nubbin.
The Wireless Protected Setup screen is pretty normal.
The CCX page is interesting; it gives you options to enable Cisco Compatible Extensions for use on Cisco wireless setups. Cisco has its own proprietary wireless LAN protocols and as such many 802.11 devices have problems connecting and functioning properly with Cisco equipment. By including the option to enable these, the Nubbin gives you more flexibility.
The About screen is also very much what you would expect.
