Good Stuff!!

Michael M., Newegg
30 May 2008
  • Pros: Have had this for a while now, I use it in my Dell Inspiron 2650 laptop. The computer is older, but runs extremely fast with this card. Has very good range as well!
  • Cons: Software that comes with it is a bit of a time waster. Just let windows manage your connection.

Works like it's supposed to

Anonymous, Newegg
25 January 2008
  • Summary: I'm not using it's Draft N capabilities as I'm using with a LinkSys WRT54GL router.
  • Pros: Owned a month but only tested less than a week since it's for a customer who isn't ready for his wireless network to be set up yet. Does what it's supposed to.
  • Cons: I'm not going to ding it's rating as this may be specific to the IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad A21p I installed this in. I found that if I used the latest driver from D-Link, and/or the wireless software, that the laptop would freeze up as it's put into hibernation mode. I educate and encourage my customer...

Fast, good reception

Michael D., Newegg
10 December 2006
  • Summary: I bought a DIR-635 and a bunch of these cards to replace an aging 802.11b setup. I don't know what the hub-bub is about the draft-N products -- I'm getting great speeds (anywhere from 130 mbps to 261 mbps) and incredibly wide reception. Just a good product overall.
  • Pros: Great reception and great speeds.
  • Cons: None really.

improved speed but not range

Chris H., Newegg
5 August 2006
  • Summary: To get higher speeds and better connection,Ive seen that you have to use dlinks software to get speeds available for card but still does not help with reception.
  • Pros: 1.Have recieved speed of about 260mbs out of 300 2.easy to install software
  • Cons: 1.The card is thicker then others I've used and had dificulty knowing if im in far enough. 2. first card that cam was "doa" and needed to be returned for replacement. 3. reception seems to be a problem as i get mixed results on connection where sometime i'll get very good and then low.

Excellent & Does Well in Vista!!

Anonymous, Newegg
7 July 2006
  • Summary: When purchasing, I took the 80% chance of this card not operating on Windows Vista and possibly having it returned for that reason. I was thrilled to see however that it installed perfectly and the drivers, although designed for XP 32bit, worked perfectly in Vista Beta 2 and up (5456 Build is my...
  • Pros: - Vista Compatible (Although they don't state that--it works on Vista's Netorking Software and not on D-Link's) - Excellent Range!!
  • Cons: -None!! (Some could say you can't use D-Link's software in Vista but I always prefer Window's built-in WiFi manager)

Disappointed - no minimum spec specified

Mr. Antony Johnson, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm sure this card would work perfectly well if your laptop met the minimum spec required. However, although these details were included with the shipped item, they were not shown on the Amazon website when ordering the product.
