Good product.

83Photography, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this when I upgraded to Windows 7 as my old card was no longer compatible. This card was easy to install and gives great coverage. Since buying it and using it on Virgin I have temporarily moved home with my parents who use B.T. Infinity and it drops out a little. However I think this is B.T. Infinity being rubbish more than the card, I did a driver software update for the card recently and it seemed to help.

Works with Windows 7

A customer from Hertfordshire, Amazon
11 April 2010
  • Summary: There are plenty of wireless network cards on the market that are good cards. However, not all of them work with Windows 7. This one does. My main reason for buying this card was that I had a Linksys card that I wanted to use with Windows 7, but was unable to because the drivers were not available.

Wireless pci card

S. Tomlinson, Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: The card was delivered swiftly and in excellent condition. The product was easy and quick to install, but....I have had connection problems which baffle me. I am a competant computer user and am familiar with installing pci devices, wireless networks etc, but this problem confuses me and seemingly the support staff at D-Link too. The device connects to my wireless network, but only establishes an ip address intermitently, i.e. when it wants to.

Almost more effort than it was worth

  • Excerpt: "...Sadly XP decided that the D-Link drivers were infact more up to date and therefore refused to let me use the Ralink drivers. The Solution ------------------ Well I have a feeling that this shouldn't work and will lead to issues in the future however so far the card has now been stable for over 4 days. In order to fool windows into using the Ralink driver I created a folder containing NetRt61G.INF from the 1.1.1.0 D-link driver folder and rt61.sys ...
  • Pros: works well in the end .  Choice of config utility to use
  • Cons: XP sp3 compatability issues, Lazy D - link not updating drivers

Like your internet dropping every 15 seconds ?

Gary Digby, Amazon
8 June 2008
  • Summary: Well, I bought it due to the good customer reviews. I must say, this is a terrible card. The connection drops constantly and the drivers are awful. Google the card and you will see the constant connection drops. Its partly to do with the Security and will only support WEP. The signal varies all the time and the computer is exactly a floor below the wireless router.

Be very careful with Vista

Brian Samuel, Amazon
6 March 2008
  • Summary: Had D-link DIR-635 wireless router working with 2 Wiis and PSP. Bought the DWL-G510 to enable a 2nd PC to access Internet. Purchased it with a fair amount of confidence after reading reviews. Unfortunately installation was not straightforward, ENDED UP RE-INSTALLING VISTA. My first attempt was to let Vista do the installation and inserted the CDROM when instructed.

Excellent Piece of Equipment

Mr. M. S. Shaw, Amazon
9 January 2008
  • Summary: After upgrading to vista ultimate 64-bit edition I spent the best part of 5 hours trying to get my netgear WG311v3 card to work properly. After fruitless google searches (as in, nobody has found a solution, but the manufacturer is fully aware of the issue) I came across this card on amazon. I ordered it as I found some vista x64 drivers on the d-link website, am I glad I did!
