Summary: D-Link makes a really nice product. I just completed my fifth soho network install. Each client is very pleased with their network's performance. I've installed the PC Card and PCI card NICs and have been very satisfied with the results.
Summary: This card uses the TI ACX100 chipset. There is no supported Linux driver from TI or DLink for this chipset. The card works fine with Windows XP, although the range seems to be somewhat limited. I can use it upto about 30 feet, but it is going thought a wall.
Summary: I used this card for one year in the library of my university - and I always had problems obtaining a stable connection. I thought it was because of the signal. Then I used other friend's laptop there - one with a Netgear card, one IBM T41 with built-in wireless, geez, they all worked so well.

Summary: Tech support could not help, switching laptops did nothing. A replacement DWL-650+ showed the same symptoms. I then decided to buy a cheap wireless VCNET 22mbps card (9.95$) and it has never ever lost the connection to the router, the signal is consistently stronger (now I can use it in the back...
Summary: The speed and range of this 22 Mbps PC card is very good once you get it up and running. Surprisingly, the WEP encryption does not slow it down noticably. Unfortunately, it does not install cleanly in Windows XP home edition. It's no wonder this product is not XP certified by Microsoft.
Don't upgrade the drivers with Windows XP and a Dell laptop!

Summary: After many long hours on the phone with tech support, who was at times helpful, and at other times not helpful, I've come to the conclusion from countless testing and reboots that any drivers except the ones that came with my card do not work.
Summary: this 802.11B unit is available with rebate for as little as $30. using proprietary compression techniques it can transmit between computers on a LAN (using the same d-link "plus" components) at up to 44 Mbs. this is so close to 802.11G performance that the price difference is a no-brainer.
