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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
