Poor support for Windows 7 x64

dabs.com
9 October 2012
  • Summary: Had terrible trouble getting this card to work properly. Its starts off for 5 minutes with full signal strength, then to tails off after 10 minutes and then connection never returns. Suggests that the card overheats, but tests prove that not to be the case. Forums show that support from the vendor is extremely poor and inconsistent. Don't make the same mistake I did, stay away from this product.

Quite good

Adrees, dabs.com
15 December 2009
  • Summary: Well, it came the next day. I got it out of the box, put it in the PCI slot, connected the antenna's to it, then started the machine. Surprisingly, Windows didn't detect it, but once I put the disk provided in, it worked. I'm on Windows 7. I had problems with connecting it to my router, but it eventually got there after a restart, it's got a better signal than my old adapter and is really good.

Waste of money

PJR, dabs.com

  • Summary: Appeared to install OK but every time it connected to the router the computer froze. Searched internet forums, tried all the fixes, even a new installation of XP Home SP3, but it still froze. Waste of time and money - no more D-Link for me!

WOT! No Vista Drivers?

Scott Bell, dabs.com
6 March 2008
  • Summary: I bought this, along with DIR-635 router and DWA-643 notebook adapter. Installation of the drivers was not the most staightforward, but I got them installed. Under XP it works like a dream, blistering fast transfers transfers between the 'N' enabled equipment and no drop-outs where previously wireless was a pain. I then bought a new Vista desktop and decided to put the adapter into this. FORGET IT. There are no Vista drivers.

an improvement over 54g

dabs.com
21 August 2007
  • Summary: In conjunction with a D-link DIR-655 router I've not had any problems or disconnections, so the connection is reliable for me. Its not a massive improvement over 54g,gaming pings and range but max bandwidth is in the hundreds rather than tens of Mb. Had to play with netstumbler and twiddle the antennas to get the best out of it on both the router and NIC.

Andrew M. Harrison "goatbloke", Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: just wouldn't work no matter what I tried, and I have built entire systems at home for myself from parts that are still working today, plus returns are a pain why couldn't it just work as promised I knew I shouldn't have ordered it after reading previous reviews!

does what it says on the tin

Ben Mottram, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: This adapter is plug and play... I installed it remotely via Skype... the remote operator had no idea what to do yet it all just worked. Card is installed right on the edge of wireless coverage for the local ap and where the previous card couldn't connect this one manages well.

26 July 2013
  • Summary: I WOULD. It kept on dropping the signal every few minutes without fail. The install instructions are flawed.
