Great with XP but

Twain Mark, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using this adapter for almost 3 years now. Works flawlessly with windows XP. Vista, however is different story. Caution: Only version D1 of this product may work with Vista. D-link only provides beta version of drivers for D1 meaning it may or may not work. I have version A2 for which D-link did not bother to update the drivers and hence 3 stars. Not wanting to spend another $50, I will be sticking with XP.

worked but did not last long

Z. Wang, Amazon

  • Summary: This item actually works OK. WPA-PSK worked OK for me (with DI-624 router). The problem lies in the construction of this adapter. Mine broken after a few month of use. If you use it often on your laptop, the wires within the adapter can snap fairly quickly. I had to have mine soldered back on, but it is now broken again. I recommend that you either get a different one, or make sure using the USB dangle every time...

Setup hints

Jonathan Aquino, Amazon
13 April 2006
  • Summary: Finally got this thing working after 3 hours of fighting it. Two tips: * try a different USB port. I wasn't getting the "New Hardware Found" like the manual said, until I tried a different port * try using the Windows configuration utility instead of the D-Link configuration utility. It just works. I couldn't get it to connect to my WPA-PSK router otherwise. So keep the "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" checkbox checked.

When it works, it works fine -- when it works

Sincere Amazonian, Amazon

  • Summary: When it works, this USB wireless adapter is very nice. The main problem that I've had is that it does not make a tight connection with the USB port, and I've tried several different USB ports that other devices work with just fine. When the connection is not perfectly snug, the wireless connection is lost. Also, the installation, software and drivers are not intuitive. Nonetheless, it's still a nifty device, most of the time.

Ganska bra

Prometh, Prisjakt

  • Summary: Funkar bra i Windows XP för det mesta men mjukvaran strular till och från. Har installerat om den 4 gånger under det första året. Gränssnittet för mjukvaran är inte heller den bästa och den väljer inte alltid den router man hade velat att den väljer. Tar in signalen bra och är tämligen robust jämfört med andra modeller.

Komfortabel, klein - Genial für jeden geeignet

  • Summary: Vor zwei Jahren war es soweit... Juchhuu, ich habe DSL *g* Da am Router aber nur ein LAN-Anschluss war und sonst nur über Wlan eine Verbindung aufgebaut werden kann musste hatte ich die Wahl zwischen USB-Wlan-Stick oder Wlan-Karte zum Einbauen. Ich habe mich für den Stick entschieden, genauer gesagt für den "D-Link Airplus DWL G122" Es war für mich ein fairer kompromiss gegenüber Netzwerkkabel durch die ganze Wohnung zu ziehen.

Problème d'installation

Bernard Burtschy, Amazon
24 November 2008
  • Summary: L'installation de la clé WiFi à partir du CD fourni n'a pas fonctionné directement, ce qui était bien embêtant, car j'avais emmené mon PC en voyage sans l'avoir installé préalablement.

No tan bueno para Windows Vista

THEUNNATURAL, MercadoLibre
23 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Un buen adaptador si lo consigues a buen precio (menos de $30 USD), solo hay que tener en cuenta que en Windows Vista sólo hay que instalar los controladores ya que el software da un error al iniciar el sistema operativo.
  • Pros: - Plug & Play, - Wireless G, excelente alcance, - Conexión USB
  • Cons: - El software da un error en Windows Vista y tiene que ser deshabilitado en la configuración de inicio
