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.
