The WLAN PCMCIA adapter from X-Micro has similar no fuss packaging to the USB adapter. Included in the package is the PCMCIA adapter card, CD with drivers for all versions of Windows and manual as well as Quick Start Guide for help with setup in Windows.
This adapter from X-Micro is not different to that of other cards I have used in the past. Although, I've got to say that the card from X-Micro is much more vibrant with all its color. The card includes two LED's on the top face of the card which indicate when the card is enabled and when there is network activity.
Like the USB adapter, unfortunately the card does not have native driver support under Windows XP. This isn't as much as a problem as with the USB adapter since this card will most likely be placed more permanently inside your notebook computer.
For whatever reason, the signal quality of this card is better than the USB adapter in the exact same location (10 ft from access point through walls) with no changes in the environment. We go from "very good" quality with the USB adapter to "excellent" (or five bars in Windows XP) which as you will soon see, seems to greatly increase LAN transfer speeds.
Now we've taken a look at all three products, let's get onto the testing and see just what they are capable of producing!
