Great Product, but does not work with MAC

Samuel M.Z. "Sam", Amazon
20 February 2007
  • Summary: I've worked a lot with D-link products and I must say they're very good, but if your looking for USB WIFi Adapter that works on macs go for the DWL-122 not the G122, that small letter (G) tells you it wont work on MAC, I got distracted when making my order, so I didn't notice the model diference, and it's very easy to make that mistake. Other than that great product.

No problems

Chris, Amazon

  • Summary: Seems to work just fine - only two "complaints": 1) depending on the laptop, it seems to be easily jostled loose from its usb connection and therefore loose connection 2) range is acceptable for my purposes, but my father had problems getting to talk from the second story of his home to the router in the basement. An alternate linksys card worked just fine. Not sure if this is a universal problem.

Does not necessarily work on a mac

jordan314 "jordan314", Amazon
27 February 2006
  • Summary: I bought this because the first reviewer said it 'works great on a mac'. I read the macosxhint that they mentioned and then went ahead and bought it. It turns out you need specifically a revision B DWL-G122, which uses the ralink chipset. I bought a rev. A2 version, and revisions A1 and A2 both use an Intersil Prism chipset, which as far as I've been able to find, is NOT compatible with a mac.

Seems reliable, but poor driver support online

Imagine Reason "Imagine", Amazon
17 January 2006
  • Summary: I've been using this adapter for a while now after initial trouble with what seems to be an unreliable USB port on the front of my Dell desktop. The cable extension is fantastic b/c different networks require different placement and it takes trial and error to find a new optimum placement for the adapter every time a wireless network disappears and I've to rely on a new one. HOWEVER, the driver software provided online DOES NOT WORK.

Nice and compact

J. Lepe, Amazon

  • Summary: Easy set up and great connection. Do keep in mind that your speed is greatly diminished (about 40% slower) if you don't have USB 2.0. Otherwise, it's a great, stable device. Also, D-Link has a website with excellent support documentation. And if that's not enough, they also offer free tech support over the phone.

Parfait pour GNU/Linux

kianby, RueDuCommerce
4 April 2012
  • Summary: je recherchais une clef Wifi supportée par GNU/Linux car le chipset realtek de mon laptop fonctionne très mal (bas débit, déconnections intempestives) ; c'est dû au driver (non libre) fourni par Realtek qui est buggé . Cette clef DLink a un chipset Ralink géré correctement par un driver libre. Je l'utilise avec une distribution Ubuntu 10.04 mais je suis confiant que ça fonctionnera avec toute distribution GNU/Linux. La clef est allongée et lourde.

DWL-G122/FR

  • Summary: Je cherchais une clef fonctionnant facilement sous Ubuntu et l'avis très utile de Panoun m'a convaincu. Achetée fin Septembre 2011, il s'agit de la révision E1 (chipset Ralink RT2870, ID USB 0x07d1:0x3c0f). Fonctionne sans aucune manip à partir de 10.10 et donc sous Natty (11.04) mais compilation des pilotes à faire pour les versions précédentes (10.04LTS pour moi). Perso, j'ai suivi les instructions dans ce post: http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?
