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: I recently upgraded to a Dlink Wireless-N router so updated my desktop with this card at the same time. Although my laptop and other machines all connect to the router OK, the DWA-547 steadfastly refused to play ball. It would make a wireless connection at an impressive 300 Mbps but then failed to connect to the internet. TCP but no IP! I couldn't even ping the router that had just supplied it with an IP address.
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.
Summary: I got one of these the other day and installed it in a system using Windows XP professional. Once I had run the CD it worked fine and connected to my Netgear DG384GT without any problems. The D-link wireless utility is installed along with the driver, which "simplifies" things but is not really necessary and you have to know how to switch it off if you don't want it. Once the utility was disabled, the built-in Windows utility worked fine.
