    Is one better than the other?

    I've read some "unofficial" stuff saying that in order to take full advantage of Centrino and the power-saving capabilities, you have to use the Intel Proset wireless software.

    XP SP1 or SP2? SP2 wireless software is a lot better than SP1, if you are using SP1 then use the Intel Proset. Otherwise try both and see which one holds your connection better.

    I've never had any luck using the XP wireless software, but I found the Linksys wireless software to be even worse. I actually had my wireless setup faster on my Linux box than on the Windows machine :embd:
