Summary: My Windows XP system was running very stable and fast. Ever since I installed this 802.11 adapter, I'm getting blue screens consistently when I'm doing heavy internet activity. If I just leave the machine up with the connection up but NOT using the connection, it blue screens rarely. What is worse, its somehow even crashing my machine when I connect other USB devices ( I disconnect the devices properly, telling windows to eject them).
Does not handle hibernate/stand by modes. Gives Blue screen crashes on Windows XP

Summary: I have been using it on a desktop (XP Media center 2005) fir a year now. The adapter's driver is problematic. Whenever I resume from hibernate or standby, the driver crashed my computer. Talked to tech support and they could not help me at all. (I had followed all the directions specified in the manual for its installation). So I currently don't hibernate my PC :( Works well on a freshly restarted machine though...
Summary: when usb card or device uses more electricity ten the usb port can offer (usually 500ma) it goes to blue screen especially on laptops...and on small pc s. the reason i think is with in the 108 acceleraton argorythm that could suck up more than usb port can give , hence error occurs. so if you dont want your pc/laptop to go blue , dont use the super-G mode. i think 5ghz router users must have a backup adapter like this at hand.
Summary: I have seen the "Blue Screen of Death" a few times, but it is not something that happens all of the time. I can't complain too much about the product considering I picked it up at Fry's Electronics for $19 after a mail in rebate. I needed a USB adapter because the PCMIA card interface went bad. Pros::: (....) *The extension cable is a nice add-on. Even if you don't need it for the AG132 it fits other USB devices as well.
Summary: I'd like to report the same problem as the people above - this adapter works great *when* it works, but it crashes my PC at least once per day. I've spent an hour+ on the phone with technical support, and so far nothing has helped. For the record, I'm running XP Media Center Edition with SP2.
Summary: We have had horrible luck with the drivers for this device. We have the A/G d-link access point which seems to run great and we have strong signals all of the time, but the PC all locked up when we first installed and got the blue screens of death. We have to remove the device from the USB ports when we reboot or in many cases it won't boot.
Summary: I tried calling customer support, but after spending an hour on the phone with a very nice lady in India, we determined that the device simply wouldn't work with the version of XP running on my machine. I was told that I wasn't the first person who had reported the problem of the driver causing XP driven systems to crash. So, I'm back to my Linksys A/B USB that can't hold a signal for very long.
Summary: Well I thought this product will be good based on some other reviews elsewhere but I am very disappointed. On two differrent PC's the divers caused a bluescreen (Windows XP SP2). This product is so new that Dlink don't even have the drivers on their website (drivers supplied on CD). As ususal it takes DLINK 5 software versions to get it right!!
