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.
Summary: i've been using this card for several months and if i have too many programs open at the same time, it disconnects & takes a while to reconnect. this never happened when i used wired-cable 'net.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).

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.
