Summary: That's the time it took for my wife to get the mail to me writing this review. Popped off the cover, slipped in card, installed software, and bam. Running good old XP (32 bit) and the card works flawlessly. Got it for $11.50 here on amazon. Very impressed.
Summary: I'm a technology professional, and I had some trouble getting the included software to work right. I had to move back and forth between the Windows (Vista) utilities and the D-Link utility, and finally gave up and just used Windows to configure the card. I have two other computers in the house, and their WiFi card software is much, much more useful.
Summary: Bought the DLink after reviewing several options to turn my home computer's hard wired connection into wireless. Computer is less than 15' from the Linksys router, no walls in between, I get 100% signal (from the same location) on my Dell laptop, but only 35-50% on the computer with this card. Initial response from DLink support was disappointing, they suggested I try the card in another computer. Starting to regret this purchase.
Summary: I installed this card into my desktop, loaded the drivers off the cd, and was connected to the internet right away. No problems with Vista 64. Signal strength is always above 50%. Router is 50 ft away on another floor. Recommended.
Summary: The dell XPS 420 has a terrible wireless card made by broadcom... on my model at least. They may have a different supplier now. I replaced the wireless card with the D-Link 2320 problem free. Have not had an issue with the internet connection since. Before, the wireless card would freeze the connection randomly every 20 minutes or so.
Summary: I just installed it yesterday, but so far I'm fully satisfied with it. Installation was easy and fast. Immediately, my network was found and I've been connected at 54mbps ever since. Quite honestly, my internet connection is stronger than when I have a wired connection to the router. There are two walls between the computer's card and my router with approximately 20 feet between. It suits my needs and works great so far. I will comment if there are any problems.
Summary: I'm not sure what the environment is that other people are using. I have a Dell 8250 (older tower) running Windows XP Home with SP3. I had bad luck with a different model card so I was leery of this one and did not install all of their software. My steps were: 1. Create system restore point 2. Download the latest drivers from the D-Link web site (version 1.20 at http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=471) as I write. 3.
Summary: I bought this adapter to replace a Linksys WMP54G one, since it was having some issues with constant transfers (downloading big files or gaming). This D-Link adapter has cured all of it, however, I find it very strange (and disappointing), that being a "Rangebooster" device, it decreased the signal strength instead of boosting it. So, to sum it all up: Old Linksys device: constant transfer issues, "Excellent" signal.
Summary: My desktop had a older LinkSys 802.11b PCI card installed and the reception strength was very low from my office area. I decided to buy this card and upgrade the speed and hopefully gain better range and reception. Didn't work out. This card constantly disconnected and the reception was worse that the old Linksys. I sent it back.
