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.
Solved! Go to Solution.

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.

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.

1. Standards : IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, Draft IEEE 802.11n, PCI 2.3
2. Security Key Bits : Up to 256-bit wireless encryption
3. Certification : FCC
4. Does not support Windows Vista 64 bit...
5. Not Dual Band
1. Standards : IEEE 802.11a/b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft 2.0
2. Security Key Bits : Up to 128-bit wireless encryption
3. Certification : FCC, UL, IC, CE, RoHS, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n Draft 2.0
4. Does support Windows Vista 64 bit...
5. Dual Band
When you compare WMP300N and WMP600N ,you should go with WMP600N(it is better)...

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.

But why with 2870?! I think with 2860, am i wrong?

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!
