Amazing.

  • Summary: I have had this wireless card through 2 computers(With 2000,XP,7) and 3 different houses over the period of about 8-9 years. Just finally 2 weeks ago the thing crapped out on me. Don't let the low Mbps specs fool you, this card is a champ. You wont regret it.

DWL-520 PCI adapter

Amazon
28 November 2005
  • Summary: I purchased the DWL-520 with a DI-614+ wireless router to link 2 computers to a cable modem. The DWL-520 was easy to install and the drivers and software loaded without incident. It worked very well with the exception of the mouse hanging up after a few hours of inactivity.

Very nice range and compatibility

  • Summary: I recently set one of these up for someone in an old K6/2-266 machine. Works great - 100% signal strength at ~30 feet through two walls a desk. Only supports 128bit encryption, unlike the 520+. My one gripe is that it needs a longer antenna.

  • Summary: There's a lot of bad reviews here, and I don't doubt people's experience. For me however it's worked great. No problems setting up or using. Good value for the money (...). I'm using Windows Media Center 2005.

Very Simple to Install and Runs Great!

  • Summary: I installed this in my PC desktop so I didn't have to drag an Ethernet cable through walls and under carpet. I've had zero problems with the card installed in my Dell with Windows XP. D-Link provides good documentation and setup wizards that guide you through it all.

GNU/Linux Access Point

  • Summary: I'm using the DWL-520 in my computer runnning Red Hat 9.0 and the HostAP driver. The card is acting as an access point. I get good connectivity between the DWL-520 and my laptop's Orinoco card. Oddly, I got poor connectivity between the DWL-520 and a D-Link router.

Go for the 520+

  • Summary: The NIC seems to be fine, getting good signals; however, the 2.4Ghz frequency does intefere with our 2.4Ghz cordless phones (a lot of crackling). Try not to transfer data while you're on the phone (surfing, downloading, backup).

Please do not support a business that does not offer support

Amazon
5 November 2005
  • Summary: Me, like many others have the problems with the Blue Screen of Death, and an NMI Parity error. It has nothing to do with memory or anything else. There is a problem with the driver which D-Link have done nothing to remedy.
