Great Product! (Get the updated driver off D-Link website).
23 November 2003
Summary: Bought D-link DI-614+ router, DCM-201 cable modem, and the DWL-120+ USB adapter as a complete wireless system. As the D-link ads say, yes, all three worked together flawlessly. In fact, I did not even need to program the router or the USB adapter. Once the modem was hooked up to the local cable network, and connected to the wireless router, the USB adapter networked immediately. I did all the wireless security programming off the computer via the USB wireless hookup.
Summary: Outstanding sensitivity and performance compared to other USB adapters I have tried and much better than my built-in mini-PCI card. Better SNR by up to 20dB, sees more APs. Utilities are very useful. Works with NetStumbler also. Installs easily under XP. D-Link support could be better, but few issues. Highly recommended.
Summary: I had a hard time connecting it to my WXP needing to driver download. And then it flashed several times trying to connect to my Linksys router. It still does an in/out connect frequently. But once settled in it has great range for the household, easily beating out Linksys and Netgear adapters.
Summary: I bring this with my laptop and whenever I want a wireless connection I just need to plug this in my USB slot and BAM I can start searching for a htospot. This USB adapter has been working great with zero problems since I got it. Software is nice as well, since it is pretty informative and helps you find a good AP to connect to. Range is surprisingly good as well.
Summary: I tried it on two machines running window 2000 Pro. One got blue screen, the other got reboot. Swap a new one with dealer, problem still happened. A nice wireless adapter if it won't reboot my machine.
Summary: I originally purchased the D-Link 520+ wireless PCI adapter and installed it in my mother's eMachine. Whenever I would shut down the pc, I received a blue screen of death with a hardware malfunction and NMI:Parity check error. Apparently, this is a frequent problem with that adapter. I am returning it because I purchased this DWL 120+ adapter, and it worked PERFECTLY. No problems on shutdown.
Summary: I was very impressed with the size, receiver range and installation of this product. I also have a Linksys USB adapter and I couldn't get coverage in my entire house. The DWL-120+ gives me complete coverage so I could move my office out of my bedroom (read: wife is happy). Previous D-Link products had terrible installation software and instructions. This product was much improved.
Summary: with the USB cable that is provided you can position this in the best possible position for the best wireless signal quality. for example: if i was to place this adapter on top of my PC case I get 50%-60% signal strength, but if i put it on the top of my desk at a higher point away from electronics like my PC and my monitor i get 75-80% signal strength. The link quality is the same in either spot but that strength gets me an extra couple Mbps in transfer speeds.
Summary: Very easy and super fast set up. Instructions are simple and concise. I installed it for an older Toshiba desktop (Celeron 466 MHZ), under W98SE, and it works flawlessly. It sits in a bedroom behind 2 closed doors and 3 walls with 2 large storage closets, and gets a strong signal (over 95%) from DI-713P, which is set up as an access point (infrastructure) with 802.11b. It probably would be even faster with another Airplus 22Mbps product.
