Good product

  • Summary: Functional, as of today after so many years it is still working! I even could install it on a computer running with Linux Debian 7.2.0 and it was immediately recognized even during the installation of Linux. Debian version 6.0.8 could also recognize, but after the installation, which is good too

practically it cannot be used

C, Amazon

  • Summary: It will not stay in the PCI slot. Any vibration of the PC case will disconnect it and make it unusable. If you're lucky you'll "only" need a restart, if not it needs to be plugged out and in again (sometimes repeatedly) to make it work.

  • Summary: The part arrived on time, in great condition and installed properly. It worked in a Windows 98 machine, which was what I was counting on.

Solved A Problem

H. Clark "Tech Nerd", Amazon
15 June 2007
  • Summary: I needed to work on computers in my basement. This card allows me to plug it into the computer I'm working on and access the internet through my wireless router. It works great and solves my problem. My router is about 60 feet from my work bench in the basement and I get good transfers.

Are you running Vista?

Bud "Ernest Hemingway", Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: I'll bet you aren't if you are using this card. The reason I gave this ** rather than * is that it works great on XP and ME. But try using it with Vista running on a Core 2 Duo system, and the system freezes on bootup. My workaround is to disable the card, start up the system, then re-enable it.

User Review

  • Summary: Odd that D-Link's own drivers don't work with its own products and that a 3rd-party driver is the only way to get it to work.
  • Pros: Works well with Atheros driver.
  • Cons: D-Link drivers are garbage and give a BSOD on 3 different machines. Download atheros driver and it will work perfectly.
