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.
Summary: I bought this antenna and the NETGEAR WG111 antenna to compare the two products. The D-LINK DWL-G122 regularly connects at only 36Mbps while the NETGEAR WG111 plugged into the same computer sitting in the same spot connects at the advertised 54Mbps.
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.
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.
Network access in a pinch but not a long term solution

Excerpt: I got the DWL-G122 when I moved to a new house that was not wired for a network. The DWL-G122 worked very well as long as the computer was being used. The range was exceptional, I always had a good connection on the opposite end of the house from my access point.
Pros: Quick and easy connectivity when no other option is available.
Cons: Does not reconnect after system standby without a reboot.
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.
Excerpt: I've had this for about 2 months now. It was intended to run on my windows 200 PC but had very tough luck using it. I found it very difficult to install and configure to run and D-links customer service had several attempts to help with the issue.
Excerpt: I bought the DSL G604T router/ADSL modem/firewall/WLAN hub in mid 2005 (see my review of it in Ciao) and the DWL G122 came as part of the kit. Given that the kit cost me £58 and the DWL retails at ~£25 separately I consider that a very good deal :-> .
Pros: 'Free' if you buy the DSL G604T : - )
Cons: Becomes very hot, relatively large for a USB dongle
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.
