Incompatible with Win7, 64 bit

Helen S., Newegg
21 July 2010
  • Summary: I assumed that the hardware was plug-and-play, and there was nothing on the box that said otherwise. However, when I put the driver disc in and read the installation instructions, it said that you should put the driver in first, before the hardware. Oops!
  • Pros: None, for me
  • Cons: I was unable to get this card to work with my Win7, 64 bit OS. I am not sure if it was a problem with the OS or with the motherboard. When I searched the D-Link knowledge base for this product, I found that the card may not be compatible with all systems.

IT WORKS!!!

Adrian K., Newegg
3 August 2009
  • Summary: Buy this it will not let you down!
  • Pros: Needed it for my old (tyan&tiger) server that had no USB ports that worked. It worked right out of the box. Had a fear there would be no Linux driver but worked on first boot. I tested it on CentOS 5 & Fedora 11. Works great!

Good 'ole D-Link

Anthony T., Newegg
24 October 2008
  • Summary: I just installed this card into an older machine and it was a breeze. The card is very reliable, and the internal USB port is very interesting. I used it to leave a permanent bluetooth USB adapter plugged in. I highly recommend it to add to older machines that don't have any USB 2.0 ports.
  • Pros: 5 USB 2.0 ports (4 external, 1 internal), easy installation without drivers (for Windows XP w/SP2 & Vista), and the reliability and stability of D-Link cards.
  • Cons: none

D-Link 2.0 Adapter

Anonymous, Newegg
15 January 2008
  • Summary: None to offer. Shipped fast, installed easy and currently works great. Thank you Newegg!
  • Pros: I don’t know were the 1/9/08 comment came from but my 450 mhz. Dell computer is now flying after the very simple and clear install. I had none of the possible extra steps pointed out in the install guide and certain programs like Picasa2 that ran on an external hard drive now open and operate in ...
  • Cons: Haven't found any yet but I'll watch for hang-up's pointed out in another review.

Dlink 2.0 usb adapter pci card

thomas s., Newegg
9 January 2008
  • Summary: Need to check manufactures specs before buying something like this. However newegg was more than fair with my return request. I am happy
  • Pros: Fast shipping, good instructions everything was in the box as described. Newegg did a fine job with my order
  • Cons: It is just what I needed, however they fail to say that you nee a processor speed, min 1.3 ghz. Mine is only 750 mhz. so it didn't work out for me

Not-so-good start, very good finish

Charles B., Newegg
9 January 2008
  • Summary: A company like D-Link should have its act together with a coordinated manual and installation screens.
  • Pros: Some brands of USB boards cause mystery hangs; not this one. Operation is as advertised. We disregarded the manual for installation, though.
  • Cons: The install manual and install screens were entirely different. We gave up and tried a common sense installation with success. We sometimes received a message to use another port for 2.0 speed, but the messages were in error.

May hurt system stability

Rick B., Newegg
27 November 2007
  • Summary: I contacted DLink e-mail support but they were unhelpful (telling me to call on the phone - which I'm sure would be a huge waste of time). I'm going to try the Belkin card instead. Of course now that I've tracked down the problem, it's too late to return the DLink one.
  • Pros: Seemed to work properly and quickly, easy to install, no driver hassles
  • Cons: After installing my system (Win XP) would randomly freeze or blue screen every 1-2 weeks. It took me a long time to correlate the problems to this card (finaly noticed that freezing was much more likely when unplugging a device from it). I tried a few different drivers and various resource settin...
