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!
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.
Summary: I bought this card after i upgraded to 60Mb on virgin as my old (Around 6 years old) wifi PCI card was only getting about 24Mb out of it... However after installing this in 2 different PCI Slots, changing between 54, 144, and 300Mbps as well as trying every channel available with my router (Which subsequently ruined connection on several other computers of mine) this card barely ever got above 5Mbps on average, peaking at 13Mbps for maybe 2 seconds each time i tested it.
Summary: Can't recommend this card higher, I've had it 18 months now and haven't lost connection once. The signal is solid and strong, and 3 walls away. The card was easy to install, came with concise and easy to understand instructions and (while is full height PCI) is quite narrow.
Summary: You would have thought that the D-Link RangeBooster N 650 Desktop Adapter with its 3 antenna's would actually get a good signal from a wireless router about 10 feet away in a ceiling but no it only managed 2-3 bars. Switched to a D-Link DWL-G510 Wireless G Desktop Adaptor and as you would expect connected with full signal.
