WMP300N Vs WMP600N

Hello

 

I would like to know if someone knows what are the main differences between these two PCI wireless network cards

 

WMP300N and WMP600N

 

The first one seems to have a better coverage due to the external antenna, the second covers more wireless standards.

 

Wich one is the better.

Re: WMP300N Vs WMP600N

The simple anwser:

 

WMP300N -- 802.11n / g / b compatible 2.4GHz adapter

 

WPM600N -- 802.11n / g / b / a (??) compatible 5.0GHz and 2.3Ghz adapter

 

You need to decide which adapterto use by looking at the specs for your router.

Re: WMP300N Vs WMP600N

That router does only the 2.4GHz type of 802.11n wireless network.

 

However, both the WUSB300N anfd WUSB600N "do not" work well with the Linksys drivers / software.  Neither adapters have the internal chips "made" directly by Linksys.  These are "licensed" from another company.  WUSB300N was from Marvel and the WUSB600N v1 is from Ralink.  

 

Use the WSUB600N v1 with the Ralink RT2870 drivers.  These Ralink drivers are newer.

I have the WMP300N working on Vista SP2 64 bit using a D-Link DIR-628. Connects at 270Mbps.

The CD provided some basic drivers, Windows Update then provided with some updated ones with more options.

Re: WMP300N Vs WMP600N

lol, but there is a couple of other MAIN things that are different.

 

300 - states not supporting 64Bit Vista ( so i assume Win7 is out as well)

 

But the major difference would be that the 600 is a paper weight, horrible connection issues no stability... search the web, I am VERY dissapointed with this card! Was s dlink fan prior to this, WILL NEVER buy, recommend or build a system for anyone with a lynksis card in it, they offer no support for this problem.... well they do offer crickets!
