This adapter is still for sale??? D-Link dropped support for this years ago.
2 October 2015
Summary: I've had this device since it came out around 10 years ago. Worked for a while on win2k but it was a pain to set up. The drivers were never updated and later when I upgraded my OS, there was no driver support. I don't think this product been updated in years.
Summary: DO NOT GET THIS ITEM! Not only does it not work but the company stopped supporting it in 2011!. They wanted me to pay $35 for a phone call to help install. It is a piece of junk. No wonder they are not supporting it. I returned it!
Summary: You could probably build a superior alternative with a raspberry pi
Pros: Great concept. Get the "landline experience" with a cheap skype subscription. The device itself real cheap too.
Cons: Total nightmare to get working. Getting the programs, drivers, and firmware working together is harder than any other device I've seen and apparently will never work with anything newer than XP.

Summary: The advice to load new drivers before connecting the device was important and thanks to all that have gone before me. This product is no longer supported by D-Link (obvious by the lack of new drivers) so it is what it is.
Summary: I have used the D-Link DPH-50u for myself and recommended it to a few friends. I had it connected to a Win XP machine, which just bit the dust. Now trying to set it up on my Vista PC, and no success, after trying a whole bunch of things.
Summary: I've had this unit for a few years now. I picked it up for $5 on a techbargains.com deal. When I was using the D-Link software, which was a breeze to install, I noticed the software had a memory leak on WinXP SP3.
