Do not buy this card

Aaron J., Newegg
12 September 2014
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Do not buy this card. Sellers are sending a version of the card that isn't compatible with windows vista or higher and there is no work around.

No vista/7 drivers

Aaron J., Newegg
12 September 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: No vista\windows 7 drivers. The piece of junk can't even load. RMAing immediately, this is unacceptable selling a product for an OS that isn't even supported anymore.

Works with Ubuntu 10.04 Linux

The Penguin "Techno Geek", Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered a refurbished DWL-G510 for about $15. I'm using it with an Intel Atom N330 motherboard and Ubuntu Linux. I put the card in and it just worked. No need to load drivers. Ubuntu detected it automatically. It connects to my D-Link wiress router 20ft away no problem.

Works with Linux!

Joe B, Amazon
1 February 2010
  • Summary: This item arrived very quickly after my order. The main reason I ordered it was because I needed a wireless adapter that would work with Linux, and I was not disappointed. I am using openSUSE 11.2, and the adapter was recognized immediately with no additional software.

It just works

J. F. O'Neill, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this to use in an older computer running a modern Linux distro because of its chipset and cost. It works fine with modern Linux kernels with no set up needed.

No longer for sale.. good.

Daniel O., Newegg
14 September 2008
  • Summary: This is a terrible card. It had never run properly in Ubuntu 8.04 always giving 20-40% signal strength while sitting essentially ON the AP. Timeouts, dropped packets, bad checksum errors (??). To fix this I bought a pretty good external wifi antenna, but that didn't AT ALL, not 1% in signal gain.
  • Pros: Connects to wireless networks.. barley.
  • Cons: It will make you bald in the process.

  • Summary: The product has worked adequately for it's intent, though Dlink took way too long in providing downloads for Vista/x64 drivers. Many are available only on Windows Update, but if wifi is your only net access then you are simply just out of luck...
  • Pros: It works...
  • Cons: Worthless software. I'd just install the driver only, and either use Window's WZC service or Buffalo's AirConnect service (free download from buffalo -- compatible with any brand adapter).

works just fine

Magan T., Newegg
25 June 2008
  • Summary: I don't even use the stock antenna, so I won't complain about range or the lack thereof, like some of these reviewers. I built myself a cantenna and if i remember correctly from my tests, it gets about 10-12db of gain (over the stock antenna) when aimed properly. so i have no range issues.
  • Pros: works like a charm with WZC (windows' wireless network manager)
  • Cons: uhh... well i guess i could say that the included antenna is minimal at best, but it's nothing worse than the ones any other card comes with.
