I have used this card with 6. and it performs very well. With a
12dB rubber duck, I've been able to link up to access points several
city blocks away.
Curiously, in close quarters, where my laptops internal (Intel a/b/g)
wireless links up, the super range card doesn't really provide any
better signal or speed... but at much larger distances it still
provides good performance.
