This SNR/sensitivity issure arose when I installed my otherwise, decent working Netgear WG311T PCI card in my 3GHz AMD machine - and it promptly started freezing. All the usual reinstalls and upgrades did nothing to solve the issue, so I popped-in a Linksys WMP54G and all seemed OK. Well, not exactly. Although the Linksys card ultimately solved the freezing, it was clearly not as sensitive as the Netgear WG311T. Needless to say, I'm a little disappointed by this find.
Linksys publishes their SNR and sensitivity specs, but Netgear does NOT. So, does anyone have or know of the specs (or which wifi card has the best SNR & sensitivity)? I'm not to concerned which has the greatest transmitting 'power',.. just the best reciever.
