Not Mac Compatible

K. Hanes, Amazon
16 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this product with the assurance it would work with a Mac. It does not. I have downloaded several drivers and help pages to try to make this work, it does not. Don't buy for Macintosh use.

Plug and Pray...Pray...pray....pray.....pray......P.R.A.Y..

26 February 2007
  • Excerpt: I bought this one and another brand. This one is terrible. Sometimes it works for hours. Other times it takes hours to work. Very difficult to find any software updates (i found none). Not true plug and play, must shutdown the PC completely after software installation. Its almost impossible to reconnect if you get disconnected. You will be wasting hours of your life just plugging and praying. I will never buy this brand again.
  • Pros: Known-brand name. Pretty box. USB Cradle. Cheap
  • Cons: Disconnects often. Unreliable. Short range.

CHEAP and cheaply made!

M. Eder, Amazon
31 October 2006
  • Summary: Mine worked fine for about a month before it stopped working. dealing with D-Link isn't a pleasure either. Don't get it. Get something better. Spend a little more, avoid the hassles.

Freezes Computers

Dan_Portland, Amazon
15 October 2006
  • Summary: I tried the DWL-G122 USB adapter in two laptop computers - an IBM Thinkpad and a Sony Vio. In each computer, the adapter worked for about 5 minutes whenever I activated it and then caused the computer to freeze for about 20 seconds, then unfreeze for 5 seconds in a repeating cycle for as long as the adapter remained activated. I tried a Belkin wireless USB adapter in the same two computers and it worked flawlessly.

Not compatible with TiVo Series 2

J. Burdett, Amazon
15 August 2006
  • Summary: I returned this item since it was not compatible with my TiVo series 2 DVR. It turns out that only some specific versions of the DWL-G122 will work with TiVo and the one I got on Amazon was the wrong version.

Misleading claims

Ed Anson "edanson2", Amazon
31 March 2006
  • Summary: The summary for this product says: "Provides wireless connectivity for any USB-enabled computer." However, when I went to the DLink web site ( [...] ) and downloaded the instruction manual, I found its system requirements listed as "Windows XP/2000" which does not include any of the USB-enabled computers I own. I am fortunate that I didn't go through the trouble of ordering it and waiting for it to arrive, only to have to return it.

  • Summary: also mit 10.5.8. funktioniert das ding nicht, obwohl ich den neuesten treiber von d-link runtergeladen habe und den von ralink (beide natürlich einzelnd getestet) und bei cyberport hatte man mich nicht mal hingewiesen, dass das das mit dem installieren gewisse 'mühe' braucht - beraten lassen kann man sich aber für 9 cent die minute - echt super!

USINE A GAZ !

lalaloulou, Amazon
24 November 2008
  • Summary: ... et particulièrement pour les utilisateurs de mac. Les drivers ne sont pas fournis avec l'appareil. Il faut les télécharger sur le site de D-LINK, où ils sont très difficilement accessibles. La hotline est payante. Après environ une heure au téléphone avec un technicien, qui voulait d'abord que je renvoie le produit qui semblait défectueux, il s'avère que le fichier à télécharger ne fonctionne pas, à moins de modifier son extension...
