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 think you can do better.

  • 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.

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.

Setup hints

Jonathan Aquino, Amazon
14 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.

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.

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

  • 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.

Dissapointment in some cases...

  • 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.
  • Pros: Fast install; Included extension cable
  • Cons: Problems with Windows 2000; Bulky dongle

DeLightful DLink

debcrane, Ciao

  • 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

Ganska bra

Prometh, Prisjakt
31 August 2011
  • 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.
