Summary: This card is great. I had an old linksys wireless card in an old compaq laptop that I was using with Ubuntu 8.04. The problem with the card was that it was so old it wouldn't support the newer WPA encryption. Did a little research and decided to go with the d-link rangebooster. Had to do some configuring to get it to work but after that, it works perfectly. Very happy with the speed and also that linux is able to see this card.
Summary: Loads of generics and no-names taking up slack now that these adapters are much less common, after scouting about came across this product. Has maintained connect just fine for my network and others.
Summary: added to my daughter's older laptop - afraid of breaking off one of those usb type hanging out of the back (laptop gets thrown around) set -up easy and fast - works great and is sturdy enough to take abuse!
Summary: I was recommended this particular model in a forum.I was trying to find a wireless card to work in an old notebook computer that would handle both Microsoft XP and Linux Ubuntu. It preformed just I was led to believe.
Summary: My computer has windows 7 and could not recognize this when I put it in the cardbus slot. And I don't mean just didn't recognize it, it didn't see it at all. I tried to find updated drivers to install for it, but nothing supporting windows 7 use. Apparently, D-Link stopped supporting this product, as seen on their own website. No more updates will be made for it. I suppose if you're still using vista or earlier, it may work okay.
Summary: Searched for Network Adapter on Amazon that would work in home network, Found many opportunities to purchase selections and made a choice. Great choice as vendor was prompt, packaging for shipment was excelent and device worked like a charm and as advertised. Could not ask for more.

Summary: We got this for my husband's daughter so that she could use it to access our home network with her older laptop. It installed with no issues or problems and works like a champ! In fact, she gets a better signal than ever before. This was a great bargain.
Summary: Like: Cost-effective if you buy it from Amazon. Simple self-explanatory installation instructions. Compatible with windows XP and windows zero Configuration utility. Compatible with b/g and g networks. The max data transfer is 108mbps. The knowledge that D-Link has achieved several consumer and technical awards. Reliable so far. Dislike: There are not that many reviews listed for this product. It partially sticks out from the slot a bit more that I expected.
Summary: The unit works great; however, the management software that came with it doesn't work properly, and causes an error after it starts up. However, the software is not required for the unit to operate properly as long as the drivers are installed properly.
