Summary: Purchased this for my wife's computer and after a few minutes of configuration I was able to connect to my Linksys WRT150N router and presto! Works great and is faster than my Buffalo 802.11G PC card.
Summary: I plugged theis N network card in, ran the setup and was easy to do so. Running a Dual band Airport Extream I get no faster responce times then from this G band network card. Both my internal G and this N card, durring testing, show only 56k speeds. My internal G card, in side my side testing with another similar laptop, was actuially a bit faster. I dont see any reason to buy this card.
Summary: My rating for this D-Link adapter, might be a little unfair. I have used and am using D-Link products and love them. I have upgraded my network to 80211n and wanted to do the same with my laptop. So I ordered the DWA-652. The first problem I encountered after installing the driver software, was after the reboot. It changed the way Windows XP Pro opened, and I was unable to connect to my network. E-mailed D-link.
Summary: DWA 652 works on Window XP SP3. You need to download the latest driver on the Dlink website instead of using the driver on CD. You have to disable the built in wireless card and uninstall any wireless driver on your laptop. DWA652 works well on my laptop running Window XP SP3 with all latest drivers. I got 100% signal at 300Mb connection! (Remember, read the manual and follow exactly the manual. Otherwise, it won't work!
Summary: It's kinda silly to have a adapter for that that is over 60 dollars that is supposed to be so great that only supports 2.4Mhz. Only buy this if you don't have 5mhz band to choose from and won't because you can get a better one that supports the clearer 5Mhz band for less that does the same with 2.4Mhz its kinda sad they don't specify in larger print that it is only for 2.4Mhz I would of not bought it for so much to use with my new router. It works fine.
Summary: This card has worked fine for me so far. The only down side I can find right now is that it won't receive 5 ghz broadcast from my router so unfortunately I have to stick with the 2.5 for now. other wise it works just fine.
Summary: This will not see the N wireless AP but will detect the G networks, called D-link and they just said it was a defect, after reading a few articles in the groups I wasn't the only one with this problem, some said will not work with XP SP3 and you should downgrade to SP2 ????? Doesn't make sense!!
Summary: The product worked great. The transaction was smooth and I received it sooner than expected. I have purchased electronics, clothing, flatware and many items and the experience is always great. This is the first site I search before I look anywhere else. I also buy products for my business.
