They pretty much suck in every way except price.
No external antenna connectors, lower power and therefore lower range
than the Orinoco's.
Also, a friend of mine bought a couple Linksys cards and they
wouldn't talk to one another. Turns out he had a bum card so
he returned it to the store and got another. He had to do the
exchange 4 times and 3 different stores before getting a pair
of cards that worked right.
Maybe he'll speak up here with details.
