    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product !!!
    I was a little reluctant on buying this product, having read previous reviews of non full compatibility with 802.11b products. Finally, I decided to take my chances.

    Needless to say that within 15 minutes the router was set up and running. I tested it with D-Link DWL-650+ (802.11b) wireless PCMCIA card as well as with DWL-G650 (802.11g)wireless PCMCIA card. In both cases it worked just fine !! And the most important, my IPAQ 5455 (802.11b) was connected with the network seamlessly in both cases. (Maybe the last firmware patch from HP has something to do with this). Unfortunately, I could not test it with 802.11b cards of other manufacturers.

    Now, I can place a DVD in my desktop computer and watch it wirelessly on my laptop at full motion, while at the same time I am downloading my email at my IPAQ. Isn' t that amazing?

    However, there is a strange thing happening, which the technical support of the company has not been able to help me solve up to this moment: while the windows XP of my laptop recognize the wireless card (DWL-G650), configure it properly and I can access my local network, as well as the Internet without problem, the D-Link utility which accompanies the card cannot see it. (These computers are so unpredictable things after all ;-).

    I would highly recommend this product !!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Pay a Few More Dollars for a Better Design and Support
    Full Disclosure: I have just decided to buy a Linksys unit after hours on hold/talking with D-Link tech support who couldn't solve an apparently simple WEP setup problem. On the other hand, I have owned several wireles router products, and have been setting up Windows networks for 7 years.

    The Good:
    * Well priced
    * Units reasonably good looking
    * If all you want to do is set up a simple, non-secure wireless connection, D-Link works just fine.

    The Bad:
    * Confusing setup screens make secure wireless connections difficult to set up (since security is now required, weight this difficulty heavily).
    * Poor manuals and web site resources make configuration and troubleshooting difficult.
    * Poor technical support. They do offer phone support, but the techs seem as clueless as most beginner customers.
    * Upgrading your unit is made more difficult by D-Link's practise of making multiple, near-identical units with subtle but critical differences between them. So you have to look at pictures on their site to figure out which model you really have.

    The Ugly:
    * D-Link's level 2 tech support finally said that they can't help when users don't use D-Link products on *BOTH* sides of a wireless connection. So, if you have built-in wireless capabilities in your Dell, IBM, Apple, ....., laptop, might want to buy another router.

    Bottom line - buy something else.

    1-0 out of 5 stars can't handle browser idle time (poor support)
    Installation was easy and everything looked great. Until I tried to access the internet via my browser the next morning ("page cannot be displayed"). All ideas of the helpdesk how to fix it didn't change anything (we exchanged about 20 emails) so that they agreed it was a hardware problem. I returned it and got the next one with the same problem. The answer of the helpdesk this time: don't use ZoneAlarm. And if this is not the problem, then it must be Windows XP. Unfortunately, shutting down ZoneAlarm didn't fix the problem. So the problem must be Windows XP in their opinion. That's an easy excuse because nobody can prove anything and I got stuck with my router and my problem. So I returned it.

    Conclusion: if you have a dial-up connection and don't stay connected while being idle, this is a good product. If you have a cable modem and don't shut down your computer all the time, try a different router.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fast w/ good range, but sometimes I lose connection..
    bought this wireless router along with the DWL-G650 wireless card adapter and overall it pretty good. it is quite fast, no complaints there, and has great range (i can use it in any room in my house, even downstairs). the only compliant i have is that once in a while, my laptop loses connection after it has been on standby or has been powered off. its easy to fix (i just unplug the router for a few seconds and plug it back in) but its just annoying since the router is in another room and i have to walk over there. i'd say this happens on average, once every couple days. its not so inconvenient that i'm returning the router, but if it worsens at all, then i probably will (i bought the router and card together from costco, which has a good return policy). it's a pretty expensive router, so while i haven't had many problems at all, you may be able to find a better deal for your money elsewhere.

    2-0 out of 5 stars THIS PRODUCT IS A JOKE!
    Everybody else hit the nail on the head. DLINK is selling a product that is apparantely still in development. I have been unable to get a single MPG or VOB file to play more than 13 minutes into the file. At that point it locks up. Dlink takes 1 week to offer back lame responses. I'm on the latest 1.02 firmware, and the server software is still at 1.0 -- definately, definately, definately AVOID this expensive nonworking product.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Late to market and still broken
    I just received my Dlink DSM-320. I was initially excited about the product, but after attempting to use it I quickly realised that it needed another 3 or 4 months to be ready for prime-time. Let's start with the big issues:
    1. Component out is broken.
    I tried this on 3 different TVs with component out (Sony Wega, JVC IArt and Pioneer SD-643-HD5) and each time the picture was displayed with a severe blue cast (everything was shades of blue). I tried another DSM-320 and the same problem existed, even AFTER the firmware upgrade. How something like this could slip by Quality Control I have no idea.

    2. Wireless compatibility is pathetic.
    I have been using wireless networks since they came out. I am somewhat familiar with configuring them. My entire wireless network is DLink AirPlus XtremeG running at 108Mbs, with compatibility for 54Mbs and 11Mbs hardware. This worked because I had people connect their laptops to my network for printing and browsing the web. I, of course, had SSID Broadcast disabled so I typed in the SSID into the DSM-320 along with my other network information and it refused to find my network. After turning down my network speed and broadcasting my SSID it connected, but then refused to download the firmware update. It was stuck at zero. The machine froze and I had to pull the plug to reset the machine. Playing videos started well, but 2 minutes in the machine would freeze with no network activity and the plug would have to be pulled. In short, the wireless functionality was terrible, and I like DLink stuff.

    3. Does not maintain the aspect ratio.
    I bought this planning to use my machine as a video jukebox. I have a dedicated TV card (Hauppauge PVR-250) and schedule my TV recordings over the internet. The DSM-320 was going to allow my to watch these videos on a TV instead of the computer. Also, I have a large hard drive that serves as a movie jukebox. The movies are kept in their original widescreen aspect ratios (16:9 or 2.35:1). I was very surprised to notice that the DSM-320 did not display the black bars required to make the picture look normal. It filled the screen with the picture and made everyone look tall and skinny.

    Those are the big problems, it is also plagued by the slow menus and horrible server software mentioned in other reviews. I guess the biggest compliment I can give it is that when connected to a wired network, and while using s-video, it worked great. Even the wife could navigate the menus (slowly), play music (provided I had setup the M3U playlist for her on the server computer), look at pictures and play videos. Unfortunately, there are other products that will do those things better and cost $100 less. Do I think the DSM-320 has potential? Yes, but it needs several firmware upgrades to fix those big problems I outlined. I'm not waiting for that though, I'm sending mine back.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Lot's of potential, but not ready for prime time yet
    I just bought this device, and it's definately got a lot going for it in the "wow, cool!" factor. Unfortunately . . . it really isn't ready for public release yet. D-link insists that most of the known issues will be worked out with software fixes . . . but the units on shelves now are just a buggy mess.

    Most of the problems have already been described in other reviews, but I'm unable to get a solid wireless signal to the device and have no desire to run a hard-wired line to my living room at the moment. I've tried a new router, replacement antenna, and moving the equipment around as much as conceivably possible . . . to no effect. Video and Audio still skip too much.

    Also, for what video I could actually get to play, much of it is in widescreen and the device has no options for adjusting aspect ratio, so the picture's just stretched vertically over the whole screen. A letterboxing option on the remote would be a nice addition.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Shame, Shame, Shame! Shame on you Dlink!
    Great potential, reasonable price but not ready for prime time. I agree with most of the previous reviews. In addition, the rewind button on the the remote does not work. Fast forward is far from fast. You cannot play all music or video files in a folder automatically and allow sequential or shuffle play. You must create a playlist, save to shared drive/folder, and rescan that drive/folder in order play. Does not play AVI files as claimed. I check daily for software/firmware updates. On the plus side, sleek looks, easy setup. When and IF it is finished, it will be great!!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not Usable In Its Current Form
    The DSM-320 is not ready for consumer use and I'd wait for D-Link to update the server software before I would even consider purchasing one. The current version lacks even the most basic media player functionality and really doesn't do justice to what appears to be an exception device from a hardware standpoint. Current problems with the D-Link DSM-320 include:

    1. Unable to play more than one song in a row. The player stops after each song on an album. Must build custom playlists for each album in your collection.

    2. Repeated "Unsupported file format" on standard MP3 files. These same files play on every other mp3 player I own.

    3. Unresponsive remote - have to hit each button 2-3 times before the entry will register.

    4. No Divx support. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Wish I would have done more research
    These cameras work great in well-lit conditions. However, these are worthless as "Securicams" as the package labels them, since they can't even see my front porch from my front window (3 feet away) with the porch light on at night. I bought two of these and I regret it. Look for at least one of them on eBay soon. Also, they don't support WPA.

    2-0 out of 5 stars An OK cam but only during the day
    I wanted to use this cam for monitoring an office, house or the street, however was unable to use it at any of these locations, except during the day. This camera seems to require minimum 5-10 lux. For example in the evening, even on a well lit street it is already very difficult to distinguish the shape of my car less than 10 feet away. Also indoors there is a lot of noise under any amount of artificial light, unless you put your face in front of the camera or the area is lit by natural sun light. Basically after 5 PM the quality gets pretty bad and after 6 PM the cam becomes unusable.
    It might be OK for video conferencing if you sit next to your computer with a lamp pointed at your face, however this doesn't require a wireless network camera since many USB models under $50 can perform better.
    The camera frame rate on my wireless network is less than 5 fps, though not sure if this is a performance problem with my wireless router (Microsoft), so I am not putting the full blame on the camera.

    Generally the concept of wireless network camera is great, but it would need to be coupled with a decent camera. As a standard Webcam this camera wouldn't be worth more than $20.
    I've had to do some research to discover that CCD cameras are much better than CMOS, especially in low-light, so I will be looking specifically for those now, even if they are USB-only. Learned my lesson.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It's a good buy for the price.
    I just bought this product and it's all what I expected. I just followed the quick installation guide, plugged in ethernet cable and the power, set the ip as recommended 192.168.0.20 on the camera and my wireless Netgear router and it works. I can view the camera immediately. But when I unplug the ethernet and into wireless mode, it didn't work. I ended up calling tech support and got a live support person in less than 5 minutes, he suggested I reboot(power down and up) my camera and router. The wireless mode now working.
    I tried to set the camera up behind the router according to the instruction on the manual from the CD provided, it didn't work. After playing around for 3 hours, I finally figured out that the default port 80 and 8481 don't work, you have to open up the second port 81 and 8482. I IPView software provided in the CD does not have motion sensor, you can download the latest version of IPView with motion sensor for the DLINK website, and it works very well. It can detect a slightest movement.

    PROS: price, good picture(can adjust brightness), motion sensor software(download latest IPView).

    CONS: no audio, can not pan view(must manually pan camera), no email picture option. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Does work with Nokia 3650!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I bought this product for use with my Nokia 3650 (AT&T Wireless). Although the installation was somewhat difficult, the device works great.

    Download the PC Suite software from Nokia's website and install it. PC Suite will not work until you connect the cell phone to the computer for the first time, so don't bother opening it yet. Install the D-Link software. Ignore the boxes stating that the software is not supported by Windows XP, it does work. Turn on your cell phone and turn on Bluetooth, leaving it within a reasonable distance of your computer. Make sure the Nokia software is told to search ALL BLUETOOTH COM PORTS to connect. This can be accomplished by opening the system tray program "mRouter" and selecting all the boxes. Pair the cell phone and computer using the D-Link software. If you are running a firewall, either turn it off or click yes when programs start asking for internet access. Then, connect the cell phone to the computer using "My Bluetooth Places" (D-Link Software). A box will come up stating that the cell phone is connected on COM Port 0. Click OK. Almost immediately, a box will come up saying "The Bluetooth Serial Port connection failed: The remote device closed the connection." Click OK and completely disregard the error message. Open up the Nokia software and it will work.

    I give this product 4 stars only because of the error box that comes up whenever a connection is made. Otherwise, everything works fine. Believe me, I spent quite a while shopping for a Bluetooth adapter, this is the best choice. If you have a Nokia 3650, it is an absolute must-have.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works great on macs
    Works perfectly on my 2 1/2 year old iBook with OS X 10.3. Just plug it in and have iSync search for your telephone. Once it's found it, you're in business from now on. All you have to do to is hit the sync button on Isync and that's it. No probs. My friend that also has a Nokia 3650 and a PC can't get the bluetooth to work for the life of him. Sounds like many other people have this hassle. Well, at least your computer was cheap, huh? Guess you didn't think about what your time is worth. My time is worth more than dinking around with a PC and dealing with crashes. I have work to do.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Installs flawlessly with a Mac and PC.
    This product has been with me for years. I have the revision 3 and I believe they are up to revision 5 already. It has worked flawlessly with my old Sony Ericsson T610 phone. And it works even better with my current Nokia 6600 mobile.

    I installed the product in my Apple PowerBook G4 and iBook Dual USB and it instantly recognized the product without any drivers. I also believe this is the same product found inside every Bluetooth-equipped Mac because Apple did release a firmware update to their internal Bluetooth and it included these external D-Link DBT-120 units, if a user had one. (The only problem is that if you updated the firmware that Apple provided, you will not be able to use the D-Link on a PC. I haven't updated mine and never ran into sync problems).

    I sync my address book and calendar in Jaguar and Panther OS to my mobile phone and iPod without any hitches.

    Pros:
    1. Small, compact, light
    2. No drivers needed for Mac OS Jaguar and Panther and Windows XP OS.

    3. Price. This product used to cost a lot. Now it has dropped down to USD40. Which is great, because this very same product that is installed internally in Macs still cost USD45 for the option. Shouldn't an OEM product installed during production be cheaper? Furthermore, if it's installed internally then you cannot transfer it between computers. The external is cheaper and transferrable.

    Cons:
    1. The only difficulty I can think of is the implementation of the Bluetooth standard across products.

    I love gadgets and find myself tinkering with anything technological so I usually don't have problems making one product operate with another.

    The problem with Bluetooth is that there is no standard way to activate and access operation between products. Each product has its own graphic user interface to contend with. Bluetooth is being billed to consumers as an easy plug and play product. I'm sure it is - just not right now as manufacturers are still fiddling with how to integrate it with their products. Hence, other consumers will have to read the manual on how to access and use Bluetooth across products. In products that come with no manual, they will have to be used to fiddling the interface. Until then, I can't wait for the time where Bluetooth actually performs the way it is billed.

    If it doesn't work the first time, try to understand the logic behind each product's interface. The problem is that if they can't get it to work, they blame D-Link. If you're computer recognizes the product upon install, then there is no problem. If it doesn't and the activity lights don't work, then send it back. Unlike Wireless/Wired Ethernet products, the user interface is not embedded in the Bluetooth unit. This Bluetooth product is only a vessel. The actual operation is dependent on the computer and interface it has been programmed to interact with Bluetooth.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent device
    This is a great adapter which is high quality, and relatively low price. I use it with a laptop running windows XP and a Hewlett-Packard iPAQ 2215.

    This adapter is very easy to setup and all of the necessary instructions and software come with the adapter. Setup is a farily automated process and the installation wizard and instruction booklet will guide you through the process.

    The adapter lets you use a variety of different services such as internet connection sharing, ActiveSynch, file transfer, and others. All of these services can be enabled/disabled at any point after installation and configuring them is for the most part a simple procedure which can be done by following the instruction on the computer.

    The adapter has a very good range of twenty to thirty yards, which is about the maximum a PDA can handle, so connecting to the adapter won't be an issue. Several of my friends and I have PDAs, so I got this adapter so we could all use my laptop as a wireless hub to get online. None of use have had any problems and it can handle several devices using it at once.

    As an added bonus the adapter comes with a free USB extension cable.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Has not failed me once
    This product has not failed me once since the day I bought it. D-link makes quality goods for cheap prices. It is not hard to use, if you have Windows XP it requires no setup, though you might want to install their software anyways, because of its features. I highly recommend this. ... Read more

    From the Manufacturer

    D-Link, the industry pioneer in wireless networking, introduces another performance breakthrough in wireless connectivity--the D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G series of high-speed devices capable of transfer rates up to 54Mbps.

    The D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-G520 PCI Adapter is a wireless PCI adapter featuring the very latest in advanced wireless silicon chip technology to deliver incredibly fast data transfer in the 2.4 GHz frequency. The DWL-G520 also works with 802.11b standard wireless devices and when used with other D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G products delivers throughput speeds capable of handling heavy data payloads, including real-time MPEG video streaming.

    The D-Link AirPlus DWL-G520 also includes a configuration utility to discover available wireless networks and create and save detailed connectivity profiles for those networks most often accessed.

    In addition to being the industry’s fastest wireless network solution, it includes management settings and policy-based content filtering for advanced network management. Filters can be set based on MAC address, IP address, URL and/or Domain Name.

    The D-Link Xtreme G DWL-G520 with 108 upgrade is ideal for creating a fast and affordable wireless network, delivering the industry’s fastest wireless network performance. D-Link Xtreme G is also the only 802.11g solution with 108Mbps mode that remains fully interoperable and compatible with all 2.4GHz devices, capable of creating one homogenous network environment for the multi-vendor environment.


    • Packet Bursting: The packet bursting technique puts more data into a single transmission, allowing more raw data to be stuffed into each packet and as a result not only delivers much more data, but also executes this process with less traffic on the network. Packet bursting transforms lengthy binary code into simple equations, resulting in an overall reduction in the number of 1s and 0s being sent over the network. It is also the technique defined as one of the methods for performance improvement in the IEEE 802.11e QOS draft standard.
    • Fast Frames: The fast frames technique enhances data throughput by increasing the number of bits sent per data frame and accelerating the timing of a data frame with a dynamic transmit optimizations. This technology enhances the Packet Bursting capability synergistically to provide accelerated performance results. The fast frames technique is also based on the 802.11e QOS draft standard.

    • Hardware Compression and Encryption: Xtreme G uses the Atheros AR5002 chipset which employs special engines to compress and encrypt data. These hardware engines operate in real-time to enhance throughput by implementing standard algorithms and compressing data prior to transmission and after reception.
    • Multi-Channel Bonding: Multi-Channel Bonding embraces two radio channels simultaneously. It collapses the available channels from 12 to 6 for increased bandwidth on the available channels. Single and double channels are not run at the same time. This technology senses single channel and dual channel frames and negotiates time-based solutions with priority on single channel processing.
    • Select Mode: Select Mode gives users the option of locking the Xtreme G products into a Static mode (instead of the default Dynamic mode) for even higher performance within a complete D-Link 108Mbps Xtreme G environment.

    The DWL-G520 is a powerful 32-bit PCI adapter that installs quickly and easily into desktop PCs and when used with other D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G products automatically connects to the network. Like all D-Link wireless adapters, the DWL-G520 can be used in ad-hoc mode to connect directly with other 2.4 GHz wireless computers for peer-to-peer file sharing or in infrastructure mode to connect with a wireless access point or router for access to the Internet in your office or home network. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stable PCI Wireless Adapter
    The card installed within minutes and was not a hassle at all to get working. And since my DI-624 sends a strong signal through out my entire apartment I can have my PCs anywhere and they are still connected at a high speed. The card has been running great on my Windows 2000 Pro machine with no problems. The software is a nice addition and I can even see me neighbors access point. The antenna is removable so that if I do need a better signal I can attach a better antenna on the back.

    Answer: If you have a DI-614+ (22Mbps) and you are going to get a wireless PCI adapter you should definitely get the DWL-520+ (22Mbps). Gget the DWL-G520 (54Mbps) if you have a 54Mbps Access Point. The best speeds you can get with the 520+ and the 614+ are about 10-12Mbps real throughput. With the G520 and the 614+ you will only get 4-6Mbps at best because 54Mbps will step down to 11Mbps not down to 22Mbps. So 614+ = 520+ or 650+, but 624 = G520 or G650.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Crashes some systems
    I purchased two of these cards and a D-Link DI-624 Wireless access point. The card I installed in my wife's old PC running Windows98 worked fine. The one I put in my PC running Windows XP Pro randomly freezes the computer.

    I know the problem is related to the card, because XP only crashes when I have the card enabled. If I connect to the access point using standard wired ethernet, the crashes do not occur.

    I do not recommend this card, and will not buy any other products from D-Link.

    1-0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE!!!
    Bought the DWL-G520 from another internet merchant along with the DI-624. The DI-624 works great, but this PCI card is the worst product I've ever bought. Running on Win2K SP4, it locks up my computer after 5 minutes of use everytime!

    After talking to clueless Level 1 Support several times and jumping their hoops (upgrade bios, upgrade sound card drivers, upgrade video card drivers, upgrade chipset drivers, upgrade OS service pack, use newest driver, revert to old driver, move the card to a different PCI slot...), I was finally able to have the card RMA'd.

    But the same symptom happened with the replacement card they sent me. In all my years, this is the worst POS I've ever come across and D-Link Level 1 Support is worst and most clueless support technicians I have ever encountered, EVER. Avoid this card if you value your time and money and if you ever need their support, skip to Level 2 support!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good luck if you buy this product
    This product caused my PC (HP 8660C with Windows 98 SE) to freeze every time after 5-60 minutes of use. Installing the latest drivers on the PC and the D-Link router, as well as two calls to customer service, did not resolve the problem. Reading the other reviews, clearly this adapter works on some PC configurations and not others. You might be lucky, or you might spend many frustrating hours trying to get it working. I returned it and bought a Linksys router and adapter with speedbooster, which work great. The only reason I gave 2 stars instead of 1 star was the customer service, which was based in the US instead of India, and at least tried to solve the problem.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Never worked for me...
    I bought this PCI card and companion router (the DI-624) upon reading reviews from several respected sources. To be blunt these components just never worked. In fact the DI520 card froze my desktop computer every time it was on! Not a great way to be wireless... Switched to Linksys and everything is great, fantastic, not a single call to tech support (compared to about 8 hours over five days with d-link). In short, I doubt that this is a bad product, but it certainly is a one star rating for my experience. Finally, be sure you buy from a dealer that will allow easy returns because if you find yourself in a situation similar to mine, you will want to launch it and try something else. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars As a newbie to networking, I am satisfied.
    I feel like I made a good purchase decision because this router was so easy to learn with. I bought it about 6 months ago. I had 2 computers that had network cards in them, but only had one online because my DSL modem only had one port for a computer. Well this little D-Link box makes that one port into 4 ports, plus more. It also adds a firewall for security, which everyone online should have, makes the web based settings available for every computer in your home, and you can even filter out the bad sites you don't want your childrens computer to see on the internet. Bascially it has a standard parental control feature where you can weed out a lot of XXX sites bvy using certain keywords and filters. For the price, you can't beat it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Keeps Hackers Out
    Installed the D-Link DI-604 with 2 computers, one running Windows 98 and the other one running Windows XP Pro. The installation took about 20 minutes. The firewall works well. I tested the firewall by using Shields Up Test ...I recieved the newer DI-604 case than is shown in amazon.com picture. I did update the firmware by downloading the binary file from D-Link's website. The web based interface for the configuration is nice and does it's job well. And I do like the ability to turn off or control the times of use for a network connection hooked up to the DI-604. One thing I do wish it did have was a log showing all traffic or website pages that were surfed to. The unit is a bit on the light weight size and it is physically kind of small. The DI-604's WAN network connection to my Cable modem is only a 10MBit connection, but it's more than enough considering the maximum the Cable modem can deliver is 1.5Mbit. The other 4 LAN connections are 10/100MB connections and work fine at 100MB. Overall, quite a nice package with good performance for the price.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Overheats, then fails
    I have had two DLink routers and both have died from overheating. I use my router every day, about 3-5 hours altogether, only doing normal web surfing and minimal to moderate downloading. The first router completely failed, had lasted about 2 years so I thought it had a good run. Bought another Dlink, because hey they *are* cheap. It's been a little over a year and the thing is overheating just like the first one. You can feel the heat just rising off the cheap plastic box. It works intermittenly and will probably fail completely soon. Besides spending money twice on something that died so easily, I had ALWAYS had trouble with the advanced features such as opening up ports and even using the DMZ feature. I could never get my router to open up correctly to outside traffic. I'm going to go with a Linksys, hoping it will last me a little longer and will perform more reliably.

    1-0 out of 5 stars d-link more like d-junk
    I got this little router some time ago, from an online store to set up a home network for the family. I got it because it was cheap and its 4-ports and 100Mbps speed would be adequate for our needs. We have a Ameritech DSL connection, which works just great by itself to my mom's PC. Now, I am an experienced and trained computer technician, and know how to set up networks. However, once I set up our three-computer network a day ago and put this router in it, it has been a real nightmare from the first second. I cannot share files or access other computers on my home network. The firewall is tricky and a nightmare--it blocks access for file sharing.The web-based configuration is nice, but it could be a little bit more streamlined, plus better and more documentation for it would help. Now for the big bummer---about every hour to 2 hours, my computer's connection to the router will freeze up. Yesterday evening it happened 4 TIMES and I had to restart the router each time. (Finally after the last lockup, only having used it for less than 24 hrs I just yanked the power plug out and unplugged all my cables) I had first thought it was my cables, I redid them to make sure they were perfect but the problem still happened even when I tested and certified the cables. I then realized it is not my computer, my modem, or my cables, it is that little box they labeled a "router"! I am very unsatisified with this cheap plastic and silicon box. Also the D-Link sticker on the bottom appears to be counterfeit--it showed only the D-link & FCC logos and model number, but NO serial number,MAC number, or Firmware number! It has the look of having been quickly put together by some dumb schmuck who just wanted to make a fast buck, as I found out later it was a "refurbished" model!! I am also appalled at the lack of print manuals and no paper proof of guarantee or warranty was issued with it. Also I applied for the rebates given AND NEVER got it! Plus the weird thing is that the Acrobat manual showed the newer version (the Rev. E, which is gray and blue) of the DI-604 while the one I had was the older all-gray model (Rev. A,B, or C--take your pick I don't know mine because of that blank sticker!)! Also, it overheats really good and i could feel the heat on the plastic cover! There is no heatsink on the processor inside. Now, my DSL modem does not ever feel like that, even in the midst of running both an AIM session, a huge 50MB download, and browsing a webpage. I am going to toss this defective router, and will NEVER EVER again buy computer parts and equipment from online "stores" (this is the second time in my life I have been ripped off by vendors) or from D-Junk, er D-Link! From now on I will go with Linksys, which all my tech friends say is best for home networking.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best non-wireless router ever
    I originally bought this sucker because it came with a free ethernet cable. Eventually, I liked it so much that I bought another one at my local electronics store. This product totally exceeded my original expectations. I thought it was just a vanilla router - it was certainly cheaper than a lot of others. However, this baby is VERY configurable.

    It's also a must if you're running an internet or ftp server. It allows you to have some computers be accessible to the outside while keeping your other computers safe with its firewall software. This is also great for online gaming as router firewalls can sometimes be a problem.

    As a bonus, this baby has the software for connecting XBoxes if you want to have an Xbox lan party or use the XBox Live Software. I haven't used this aspect of it, but it does mention that it's compatible. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Too bad DLink dropped the ball.
    I am usually a fan of DLink products but they really dropped it on this so called bridge. This is absolutely not a bridge. If you are looking for speeds slower than 802.11b this would be perfect but DLink insists on using terms like "turbo" and "extreme" Two tin cans and a piece of string communicate more effectively than two of these relatively pricey units.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Performance from such a Little Box!
    Having this DWL-G810 Wireless Bridge is a great addition to any network ready device. I have this wireless bridge configured to connect to my network with 108Mbps speeds, and I can plug and unplug this into any network ready device. For example I've plugged it into my Playstation2, my computer in the garage when I want Internet access, a laptop when my friend came over, and even my Dad's PDA with Ethernet adapter installed.

    The setup is rather simple, just follow the instructions, reboot the box and plug it into whatever you want. Just make sure it is within range, and sometimes fiddling with the antenna helps with the signal.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Working perfect (with right settings!)
    OK. I have DI-624, DWL-G650 and DWL-G810.
    I connected my KISS DP-500 Network DVD to the DWL-G810 and everything is working perfect, but you will need to work with settings for a few minutes.

    DI-624:

    Firmware - 2.42
    Open System
    WEP Disabled (#1)
    TX Rate - Auto
    Transmit Power - 100%
    Beacon - 100
    RTS - 2346
    Fragmentation - 2346
    DTIM - 1
    Preamble - Short
    SSID Broadcast - Disabled (#2)
    802.11g only - Disabled
    CTS - Auto
    Super G Mode - Super G with Dynamic Turbo

    DWL-G810:

    Firmware - 2.12
    Static IP
    No Gateway Address (#3)
    Infrastructure mode
    WEP Disabled (#1)
    TX Rate - Auto
    Authentication - Open System
    Super Mode - Super G with Dynamic Turbo

    #1 - First you can try with security settings disabled and later you can enable security.
    #2 - Guys: broadcast SSID is NOT necesary! No security issues!
    #3 - this is the key!

    Unplug both devices and it's done!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't even work with other D-Link Products
    I purchased the product to use with a ReplayTV unit. I followed the instructions for configuring it (a pain; see other reviews). While the DWL-G810 would "see" my D-Link DI-824VUP (router with wireless access point), it wouldn't connect to it even with the DWL-G810 within a few feet of the router, using all default settings, and encryption turned off. I found D-Link's customer service to be unhelpful and ultimately returned the product. My D-Link router works fine with my wired network, but I would avoid their wireless products.

    1-0 out of 5 stars SECURITY PROBLEM -- AVOID
    First of all, don't take my word on this, follow up by going to broadbandreports.com and search on DWL-G810. The security issue is that this device WILL NOT work unless you are broadcasting the SSID of your wireless network. This applies to the shipping firmware 2.0 and the newer firmware 2.12. This is the deal killer for me since I don't want to expose my network's SSID. I'm actually quite pissed off at DLINK over this.

    By contrast, DLINK's "range extender" (aka wireless repeater) DWL-G800AP actually WORKS with SSID broadcast disabled, so one can see that DLINK could overcome this security issue.

    The remaining issues are these:

    (1) It won't support DHCP from your router to any PC hooked up to the bridge. You might think, hey, I'll configure my PC for DHCP and it will get the IP info from the router through the bridge connection. Wrong! It won't work.

    (2) The router itself does not work for obtaining DHCP from the router EVEN THOUGH IT HAS THIS AS AN OPTION. This is outrageous and completely unacceptable. Confirmed on BroadbandReports.com and by DLINK's Level 2 support.

    Bottom line is that, while it works, it's entirely manual in the configuration and the SSID broadcast requirement is a security vulnerabilit not worth enduring. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good range and was very simple to install
    I can get a wireless signal from anywhere in my home and the speeds are perfect. I cant give the technical info, but I know I don't notice a difference when web browsing from when I am plugged into the router with the Ethernet cable.

    Installing this card was very easy and only took about 5 minutes. One reboot and I was up and running. I use Windows 2000 Professional and a Toshiba laptop.

    I'd also like to point out that the D-Link utility that comes with this card is very helpful and works quite well. With this utility I can scan the area for wireless access points and then connect to the one I want. It displays useful information like the name of the access point, signal strength, and more.

    I recommend this card and if D-Link's other cards come with this type of utility I recommend at least checking them out.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Didn't work. . .but easy to install
    I bought the DWL-G650 card (Version B4) along with the the 624 Router (Version C1) a few days ago. The installation was very easy. The install guide was the best I ever read.

    Only one problem, it didn't work. For some reason, I could not get a signal on my laptop with the DWL-G650 card. Several calls to D-Link did not solve the problem. Though the D-Link people are great and their e-mail service is also great, I still could not hook-up.

    D-Link told me to send the product back to Amazon since they believe it is either a bad router or a back card.

    I'll change the star rating once I get this product to work. But it deserves at least 2 stars for the great install guide and the helpful people at D-Link.

    UPDATE: After more converstaions with the D-Link tech suport people, they concluded that the problem was with the latest firmware update (2.48) to this wireless card. When I use the prior firmware update 2.46, I have no problems hooking up with my Di-624 wireless router. HOWEVER, firmware update 2.46 has a WPA bug. So if you are willing to use 2.46 w/out the WPA encryption, this is a great product. The speed is amazing.

    Otherwise, you may consider the Linksys w/speedboast.

    2-0 out of 5 stars was great until it starting flaking out
    installation was simple on my IBM T23 running W2k and I was up running in no time and getting good range & performance. after 6 mos, i upgraded firmware on my DI-624 and driver for the G650 and the G650 has been problematic ever since - it hangs my PC until I pull the card out. As others have noted, D-Link support didnt want to acknowlege the possibility that the card was bad. I'm at the point of chucking it and trying another brand. I have no such problems using an Orinoco-based "b" setup while I am at work.

    1-0 out of 5 stars What a pain!
    I had no problems installing the drivers for this card when I bought it. Excellent signal strength, fast speeds. It decided to stop working about 6 weeks later. I have tried getting help from D-Link support and it has been no help. I have been unable to reconnect for 3 weeks now, and D-Link refuses to accept that it might be a problem with their product. My first contact with tech support was rude and patronizing. The second contact directed me to download a "new" driver from their website--a driver which was older than the version that came with the card! The third, fourth, and fifth contacts were no help either. I've given up hope. Do not buy this card unless you have a lot of time to fix their bugs.

    (I'm running Windows Me with a Toshiba PXC1100U cable modem and the D-Link DI-624 wireless router. My roommate has no problem connecting the router with his XP & Centrino-running laptop)

    UPDATE: I finally got through to someone at D-Link that was helpful. An hour later on the phone, he was finally able to get it working. They need to work on their self-install guide to make it easier for non-techies like me to get their networks up and runnning!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not compatible with Windows XP
    D-Link card will connect to a peer-to-peer network at home 80% of the time on the first try. Connects to an open (non-wep) base station network (city-wide "Cafenet" wifi) with some coaxing.

    Connects to my work network (with wep) intermittently, at best. I don't remember the last time I've had such a frustrating experience. I done everything per D-Link instructions (i.e. if your software doesn't work, disable Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration) and still their software won't run. Windows will often associate with a base station but won't take a DHCP address. This card, on Windows XP, is an absolute nightmare - stay away.

    (I should mention it works on my wife's Win2k laptop without issue.) ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great connection, great price!
    Tested this against a D-link 614+ 802.11b wireless router and after a few teething issues (more on that later) got it working just fine. When the router is in the same room as the DWL 122, I get a 100 % connection rate, after moving the router a few rooms away, the connection rate drops to about 75 % but that doesn't really affect the upload/download speed in the slightest (1200/300). (I tested the speeds using the speed test tool at www.dslreports.com).

    I had some problems getting it connected initially, the problems though were mostly caused due my ham handed go-it-alone configuration attempts. Wouldn't have been difficult if I hadn't tried to set the SSID/WEP/MAC address filtering from the get go. Called up the tech support when I was totally frustrated, and spoke to an extremely rude operator, who obviously din't know the first thing about the products. Luckily on my second attempt, got this nice gentleman who managed to untangle my mess and get me up and running.

    My reason for giving it 5 stars:
    1. I din't want to penalize D-link for my clumsy configuration attempts,
    2. The connection is so strong and sweet, couldn't find any fault with it,
    3. The DWL 122 looks pretty nice and is easily hidden from view.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Works well for what it is
    The actual hardware works fine. I've so far tested it under Windows XP and Linux. The drivers, as others have stated, lack polish. Under Windows XP the supplied D-Link utility is useless -- it won't even run. However, you can set it up using the normal XP wireless tools. If you download and install the wlan-ng package, it also works fairly well under Linux, but takes some hacking. I had to write a small script to delay the wlan-ng event handler's invocation of ifup, otherwise it tried to bring up the interface before a link to the wireless access point was established, and it failed.

    I bought this because my old Prism card, the only one Linux understood of all my various wireless cards, did not do WEP. The DWL-122 uses a Prism 2.5 chip, so will do 128-bit WEP, but not the more secure 256-bit WEP.

    Others have asked about signal strength. I was two walls away from my access point and I was getting 4 out of 5 bars at worst. You can also stick this on the end of a USB extension and move it around to find a stronger signal, which you can't do with a normal Cardbus adapter.

    It's not fast, it's not fancy, but it does seem to work and is tiny and portable and runs everywhere even on desktop computers. So I'm keeping it. It is now my standard wireless interface.

    D-Link DWL-122

    I've recently bought the D-link 802.11b wireless router for my home and installed the router(in DHCP mode) in minutes. I've connected my Sony VAIO with no hassles.

    My Compaq desktop (Windows 2000) desktop doesn't have the wireless capability and I bought the new D-link (DWL-122) Wireless USB adaptor. I preferred the D-Link adaptor over the Netgear USB adaptor because the same company products may work fine. Unfortunately, it doesn't. I put the installation CD and the Installation application popped up and clicked the Install button. Then I got an error message from Windows Installer and obviously the Microsoft error message doesn't help anyway. So I reinstalled the Windows installer and the installation application did run.

    Then I plugged the USB adaptor and the hardware has been recognized by the system and I configured the USB adaptor and the signal strength was around 70%. That was awesome? huh!, apparently not. I have to restart my computer to get the IP Address configured and everything seems good finally. Then I started browsing yahoo, amazon, bbc.co.uk sites. After couple of minutes, the browser started hanging(for more than a minute) and still the signal strength around 70% in my adaptor. The Router is just 30 feet away from my desktop.

    The USB adaptor is consistently failing to connect to the router at regular intervals and sometimes it doesn't connect at all.

    Finally I've lost my patience and returned the product.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works GREAT with Toshiba SD-H400 Tivo/DVD player!
    Bougth this for $20 (after MIR) from a local office supply store. Connected to the Toshiba SD-H400 using the supplied cable. DVR detected it immediately, prompted for a firmware/ driver upgrade. Once that was done, I configured the SSID and 128-bit WEP encryption key. Added its MAC to DLink DI-614+ router's MAC filter list. BINGO! I could download program content in a few seconds that used to take several minutes over dial up. Connection speed and signal strength is reasonably good.

    Have not tried with a desktop/laptop. So, no experience on that front. If you want an USB WiFi adapter for Toshiba sd-h400, don't look any further.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worst working device I have ever bought
    Ok, bought this installed on a mac running Panther, freezes OS every 5 min, downloaded updated drivers which claim fixes this and the 20 other problems, does not fix jack. The usb adaptor gets extremly hot which is strange because it is only running off of a low voltage and drains my ibook battery extremly fast. I was going to contact D-link about this but after a quick search I discovered alot of sites devoted to how poor this product is. Ps I also installed it on my pc running xp and it did not freeze but gave me the wep key error and kept loosing its connection even though my router is 6 inches away from my pc. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars No problems so far
    I've had the D-Link DUB-H4 USB 2.0 4-Port Hub for about a week now. I've been using it with a Dell notebook running Windows XP. So far, the only devices that I have connected to it are an 80 GB external hard drive, a multifunction printer/scanner, and my Nikon Coolpix 3200 digital camera, all of which are devices that support USB 2.0. And like my title says, I've had no problems so far. All of the devices are running at USB 2.0 speed, and everything is running fine.

    3-0 out of 5 stars USB mouse periodically freezes
    I have a laptop without PS/2 ports so I needed a USB hub to connect an external keyboard (MS Natural Elite) and mouse (MS Optical Wheel Mouse). Unfortunately, the mouse freezes for a complete second during high CPU times (about every ~1-10 minutes). I bought a much smaller SIIG USB 2.0 mobile/notebook hub (not the "mini hub" one which is bigger), and it doesn't have these problems. With the SIIG, you don't have to use the AC adapter, unlike the D-Link.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
    I ordered this Product on June 10th, late in the afternoon, I received it, via UPS, on June 11th, early in the afternoon.

    I couldn't BELIEVE I received the Product in LESS than 24 HOURS.

    And it works perfectly. Simple instructions - plug it in and it works like a charm.

    I highly recommend both AMAZON and the Product manufacturer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice little wireless router
    I'm not sure if the other reviewers have problems reading instructions or if they just skipped steps. Had no problems at all getting this unit set up and establishing connections between my desktop and Inspiron 5150. Take it out of the box, connect an ethernet cable between the desktop and router and plug it in. Use your favourite browser to connect to 198.168.1.1 and run through the setup wizard. Then once you've got everything set up, read through the manual, go through the various setup options and tweak as desired. I opted to go with the WPA-PSK authentication protocol because its supposed to be more secure, but if you have other devices that don't support it, you'll probably have to stick with WEP.

    It can be laid flat on the desk, or propped up on end vertically using the little rubber feet that are supplied. There are 4 ethernet ports that allow you to connect via 10/100 Ethernet and the WAN port to connect to cable, DSL or LAN. The antenna is on a swivel and can be rotated to just about any convenient orientation.

    The only thing I don't like about the router is that it doesn't have an internal clock, so every time it is powered off the router's system time goes back to it's default start value. It can be configured to set the time from an NTP server, but only if it's connected to a WAN network (via DSL, cable or LAN). It's only a minor inconvenience though. The other thing is that the router's web interface only seems to work properly if you use IE. Using Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox sort of works for most things, but not everything.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Hope you're patient
    Either I'm stupid or the reviewers who found this thing easy to set up are just lucky. I fought with this thing for several hours and two calls to customer service. Both useless, by the way. The instructions are beyond horrible. They're inadequate clues at best. The encryption process is cruel. You have to do it in the proper order - I believe the base computer you're using for set up and then the your wireless computer. No mention of the order in the directions. Learned by trial and error. Do it backwards and you lose your connection. No instructions for the event you just want to set up your wireless computer without a base 'setup' computer. Having never done encryption I didn't realize that I supply the encryption code. Finally figured that out. Possibly the others out there are just as bad. Now that I've got it set up, it generally works fine. I also set up a d-link wireless printer adaptor. Equally frustrating and directions better but left out one very important fact.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Lousy router doesnt work with IBM Thinkpad
    I hate this router already before reading the feedbacks here. If a router wont work with so many devices, it is basically junk. I have used both Microsoft(I know we are against MS) but the router never gave me any problems with any devices, "firmware" also was great. This stupid thing restarts every time I add a MAC address to the filter list. I sneeze and it restarts.
    In short, I HATE IT!!!
    Go for the little more expensive Netgear or grrr... Microsoft and you will get your money's worth and professionalism.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beats Linksys any day!
    I am happily sitting in my back yard typing up this review on my new D-Link wireless router, which took me less than a half hour to set up and get running with all three of my laptops (including using WEP security).

    Previously I had a Linksys router, which was a living nightmare! It constantly dropped the signal and had to be reset, it stopped working altogether one day, then after two hours on the phone with Linksys tech support, I was able to get the Ethernet ports working again - but not the wireless. I've commiserated with many others who've had nothing but trouble with their Linksys products.

    On top of being easier to set up, the signal from the D-Link router is much stronger throughout my house than the Linksys ever was. I couldn't be happier! :)

    1-0 out of 5 stars Total POS
    The unit was simple to install and I was on-line on the internet in minutes with NO hassles. HOWEVER... it will NOT connect to HP iPaq devices at ALL. All it will do is show the router as Available, but will NOT, EVER connect. Just ask: If you Google the DI-524 and iPaq 4155, you can see more information. The tech support guy actually said that his best suggestion would be to return the router. I unplugged it, popped my Netgear 802.11b back in and voila, I was back on-line with NO problems.

    I'd avoid D-Links products. I have a PCMCIA card arriving tomorrow which I'm returning without even opening the box.

    What a bunch of low-budget crap! Go with Netgear or Linksys, you'll never be sorry. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    A notebook computer is all about portability, so why should your network cable keep you tethered to one place? The D-Link DWL-650 PC card Type-II 11 Mbps 802.11b wireless LAN adapter, known as the D-Link Air for short, gives you back your mobility, letting you connect to your home or office wireless network from whichever desk (or couch) you happen to be at. Plus, as wireless networks continue spreading to hotels, airports, and even coffee shops, it will help you keep connected no matter how far you travel.

    The DWL-650 installed easily, as a PCMCIA card should. We just ran the setup program from the included CD and plugged the card into an empty Type-II slot on our notebook PC. Windows XP immediately recognized the card and installed the drivers. Then, using the D-Link configuration utility, we configured it for our specific LAN. Once connected to the LAN, the little green LED on the end of the card stopped blinking, telling us we were good to go. The printed manual and online help gave helpful guidance on getting the card installed and connecting to our network.

    As we tested our wireless setup, we reveled in the freedom the D-Link Air gave us. Using it in a two-story house, we were able to go from room to room, never losing our Internet connection. We even could go outside on the patio and browse the Web from a chaise lounge. Of course, the card worked equally well in an office environment, letting us take our notebook from the conference room to the lunchroom without losing our network connection.

    In general, we found that the construction of the walls between the wireless card and the access point had as much to do with reception quality as did distance. So, for instance, if you're separated from the access point by several thick walls, reception will be much poorer than if a glass partition is all that separates you. The manufacturer suggests a range of up to 328 feet indoors and up to 984 feet outdoors, and we found that to be a decent approximation of the maximum range you can expect. The D-Link control utility has a graphical status bar that shows the wireless signal strength, so it's easy to know when you've wandered too far.

    At 11 Mbps, the speed's plenty fast for most uses, like browsing the Web, accessing a file server, updating a database, etc. You can also configure it to transmit at slower speeds, depending on your network environment. The card supports both 64-bit and 128-bit WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption, a vital feature that keeps your communications secret.

    The D-Link Air will keep you well-connected whether at work, at home, or through a public WiFi (wireless fidelity) network at places like an airport or coffee shop. Since it's a PCMCIA card, it's easy to swap in and out if you need to use a wired connection in some places and wireless in others. Bottom line, if you have a notebook PC and have access to wireless capabilities, you'll love the freedom of movement this little card delivers. --Ken Feinstein

    5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended Buy if on a Budget, but still want Quality
    I bought this because a friend of mine has a D-Link Wireless Router and I like to use his Internet Connection because I still only have a 56K. Since he already has a DI-713P I didn't have to make any configuration changes to my DWL-650 PC Card. Everything worked out of the box. I did have to change my network settings a bit, but the manual shows how all of that is done. Coupled with his DI-713P I get good signal strength anywhere in his home, even a little bit outside. Once I can afford Cable Speeds I will definately have this set-up, or whatever might replace the DWL-650 or DI-713P int he future. The sure thing is that I will buy D-Link ofr it's ease of use and reliability. I am a very pleased customer.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Poor connection/signal quality
    I bought this card off a yahoo.com store. It does not always connect to the available wireless network. It is not even compatible with Windows XP - the installation says so, it is not digitally verified by XP. While it is able to detect the network, it just won't get connected. I use it on my campus' wireless network. While people around me can connect to the network using their wireless card, mine just refuse to do it. Although sometimes it does connect, this is not a very reliable card.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Shoddy
    I suppose the range etc. are fine - I haven't tested it directly against other cards but qualitatively performance seems fine.

    It has an annoying installation where you have to have the CD-ROM available at the same time as the card. If you are installing on a laptop without a CD-ROM, by sharing the drivers from a networked CD-ROM, this will make installation more annoying and mystical.

    It has a very stupid and irritating constantly brightly flashing "active" light during normal operation.

    It installs a utility which can only be run by administrative users, but tries to run itself under any user, so that normal users get a stream of error windows filling their screen. It's very stupid in this day and age to assume that everyone on a machine will have administrative privileges.

    All in all, a thoroughly disappointing purchase. I've had good luck with D-Link products before, so the general lousiness of this particular one surprises me.

    4-0 out of 5 stars 2 out of 3 worked great
    I bought 2 of these cards and the router initially and had no problems setting up and getting online. Shortly after that, one of the notebooks started having connection drop-outs. When I applied pressure to the card the connection would restore but it frequently caused the computer to freeze, even during the boot sequence. Since I had 2 cards and wasn't having any problems with the second notebook, I tried the working card in the first notebook and it worked perfectly. In other words, one of the cards I got had a defective connection. It was past the Amazon return period and frankly I was too lazy to contact D-Link for a replacement. I picked up another card later and it works fine.

    Both working cards have been working great for months and I have never experienced any connection problems whatsoever. I have also not noticed any decrease in network speed compared to the land line. I recommend the card with the caveat that there seem to be quite a few poorly made ones out there.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Customer Support and Terrible Quality
    At first, it worked fine. However, after 3 months, it stopped working and I got the error code 10. I called customer service several times (>=4) and every time I had to wait for more than 10 minutes in queue. They gave me absolutly unhelpful advices: reinstall card and reinstall driver. Attempt several times, Eventually I got a RMA number to exchange it. They do not accept US mail, so I had to send it via UPS and it costed $8.(40% of purchase price). After one month of wait, I got another card, which looks like an old one. I guess they sent me a repaired one. Unfortunately, this one does not work at all!! ... Read more

      5-0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Gaming Router for the Home
      If you play a lot of online games, or download a lot of files all the time, then this is the router you want to get the best performance out of your Internet connection.

      I will save you the time of reading my review since it will mostly reiterate what other reviews have said.

      Basically this router rules, as it does what it says it can do, and you don't have to fiddle around with it much to get it working properly. The wireless signal is great, it works well with it's partners in crime (DGL-3426 - Wireless Adapter) and looks totally bi*chen with the blue LEDs and black casing.
      I just want to add another 5/5 rating because this product deserves it.

      5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible Router....Perfect for Gamers
      Sleek design and unbelievable performance! I use this for my online gaming, while the family uses the network for other uses at the same time. Not once have I received any lag in my gaming. D-Link is the only one on the market to integrate the GameFuel technology which is exactly what sets this apart from all the other underachieving gaming devices on the market. The DGL-4300 is a must have in any household.

      4-0 out of 5 stars Its a pretty great router, but support is weak!
      I'm a computer professional so technology is not much of a mystery to me, but I still want something that's solid, and easy to manage.The internal software to his unit is pretty good, and the performance is top notch. For one its easy to store, and save your configurations.This is important because there may be occasion where you have to reset the router, and your settings would be lost.The firmware was easy to update, and will need to be updated as soon as you connect the device. A word of caution here, if you are using a dial-up connection, (unless its always been very stable), I don't recommend upgrading the firmware with it.One thing you cannot do, because it will likely render the router useless, is lose your connection in the middle of a firmware upgrade.

      This is a gamer modem, and the help files and web manual provide good information as to how to set it up.It even has the settings to port replicate many popular game already built in.In addition, it has a special gamer network traffic section to keep your games running on an even keel over your network.I works, but better with some games than others.While I can't speak for any screaming, bleeding edge speed boosters, it seemed fast.I connected my old Windows 98SE machine using a Hawking, USB, wireless receiver, and it just worked! I experienced none of the problems I'd read horror stories about with other wireless routers.

      Connection is a snap.Disconnect your cable modem from the back of your comp, connects its ethernet cable to your new D-Link router, run the included cable from the D-link to your ethernet port on your comp.(If your computer was connected with USB, you might need a $10 ethernet PCI card if you don't have an ethernet connection.) Turn everything back on, and (at least in my case, it just worked).If your running it as a network, and not just a single firewall, I'd recommend the most modern computer for the wired connection.The rest can either go wired or wireless.I got excellent signal strength, and have yet to experience a dropout on my wireless machine.For those who don't know, a wireless router is normally wired to the first machine (wired connections are generally faster and more solid than wireless).The wireless part is generally for other computers and network devices (like printers and such) to be connected to the wireless part of the network.In the past all connections to a router were wired.If you have one computer you can use an access point, instead of a firewall, but with the exception of this one, (which is expensive) most access points cost near the same as a four port wireless router.

      Ok, now the bad news.It is a complicated piece of tech, and to do some things, people might need help.My advice is to read the FAQ's, and go to the web boards.I needed to get it to host a BattleNet game.I had the correct ports replicated as an exception, but it didn't work.I called the tech serve, and a typical moron told me how to ping the system with Windows command line.I spent a half hour trying to tell him I was connected fine, and could even play the game I wanted (Warcraft III Frozen Throne), but could not host a game.He couldn't answer a few simple questions, and finally admitted he didn't know anything about networking, but was reading from a test script.He agreed to transfer me to level 2 technicians.When I spoke to them they couldn't answer my questions either, and gave some lame excuse that if they told me how to host on BNet it would make my network insecure, and they would be liable to a lawsuit.Give me a break, you create a gamer router, and even include the ports listed for that game, then won't tell your customers how to set it up.I just don't think they held up their end of the bargain (D-Link support that is).

      After two days of testing it, I finally figured out, I had to create virtual servers for each port separately, then create a static IP address, and connect it up to the dynamically created one from Comcast. That would allow the virtual servers to be used by the gamers connecting to the host machine, to connect to a defined, unchanging address, which would connect to whatever other address came up dynamically by the service provider, using the DCHP server.It sounds complicated to a non-network guy, and it is.I'd have like to been told how to do that by tech serve, but they were too incompetent so it was just trial and error, plus a lot of reading.

      Bottom line is if you've gone though the router trials before, this will probably be a good experience.If not, prepare to educate yourself on the wonderful world of networking.I do recommend routers to be used as firewalls to all computer users who access the web, gamers or not. Hackers are banging on your computers ports all day long on the web, and with a hardware router, they only see a router, not the computers hidden behind it.If your not a gamer, this one is pricey, but if you want the latest greatest, as of today, this is pretty much it.

      5-0 out of 5 stars Some üBer 1337-ness from D-Link
      I just recently went to a LAN party with some friends and this router was powering the Intenret connection. Those blue LEDs were mad bright! The Internet connection at the LAN was flawless and I knew I had to have one of these bad boys. Plus this thing has all gigabit ports! w00t!

      I ordered it on the Internet and it came the next day. I've had it running in my room for 3 days now and I have to say that it does make a difference with my ping times in CS. And I've had to face this router towards my wall because the LEDs were so bright.

      All my friends are jealous and they want one.
      I got gigabit and you don't! HAHA!

      5-0 out of 5 stars Do you download while gaming?Buy this.
      You pay about a $50 premium over competitors for this highly rated product, which gets you "gamerfuel".That's an odd-sounding marketing buzzword for "packet prioritization". It means the router will prioritize your gaming session packets over ongoing file transfer and other connections, so they don't lag your game session nearly as much.Review sites find it really works and helps lag a great deal, but you'll still experience some (reduced) lag with multiple concurrent downloads.Other manufacturers will eventually be coming out with models that do the same thing, but for now it's just Dlink.

      Those who play games at the same time as downloading, should buy this product without hesitation.

      To get the product working well, connect to router via your web browser at http://192.168.0.1, under basic/dhcp menu give your computers a static ip like 192.168.0.xxx (2-255).Then go to advanced/gaming menu, and easily select the games and downloading applications you run from a pulldown menu.A huge number of games and applications are already predefined for you, like starcraft, edonkey, etc..Well that's it!

      You can help the router out by defining your upload speed under advanced/gamefuel, but the latest 1.2+ firmware does this automatically for you if you click "automatic uplink speed".

      This product is also designed to easily work with XBOX live, but I don't use that personally. If you want to connect an xbox or any device without built-in wireless ability, and don't want to use an ethernet cable that stretches for miles, you can buy Dlink's matching bridge, model 3420. You could also hook up a computer with a 3420 if you want to avoid any possible driver or wireless hardware headaches.Microsoft has a very similar bridge product, but Dlink's has superior wireless encryption protocols (WEP).

      If you are not using XBOX Live, you can turn on "dynamic fragmentation" to speed things up a bit via router menu at Advanced, Gamerfuel.It is off by default, because it'll stop XBOX Live from working.

      Upgrading the firmware was very easy -- grab the file from dlink's website, connect to your router via your web browser, and the under tools/firmware menu, click upgrade.I use this product with my cable modem.It's really quite easy to setup, but Dlink has excellent free phone support if you get confused at any point. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Possible gotcha for Mac users
    Amazon sent me the 614+ by mistake originally, but it worked fine with my G3/900 iBook. Then they sent me the 514, but it wouldn't let me get on the web when connected wirelessly. I connect via ethernet and no problem, so DHCP is OK. Finally, remembering something I read about using Linux with this router, I went to the Advanced section on the config utility, then selected "Performance", then set the "Preamble Type" to "Long" instead of the default "Short". Wallah! It worked! Don't know if it was because my neighborhood was crowded with other wireless routers, or if because I set the SSID to not transmit (though this didn't cause a problem with the 614+) but anyway that's something to consider if you're having a problem with this router and an iBook. Otherwise, it seems fine so far.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good basic wireless router
    I bought this router because it was lowest priced unit at the time. It works as expected with no problems except ONE: after few minutes inactivity it kills ssh session from an inside computer to an outside linux/unix server. It is a big hassle because I am used to be able to log in to a mail server and stay connected while the computer is on but now I have log in every time I want to read mail. I think most wireless routers have this problem (Netgear 814 has the same problem) and I suspect it is probably related somehow to NAT/firewall feature which can not be turned off. For example, Netgear 314 does not behave this way.

    It is a great product for the price since you really do not need 802.11g routers for two reasons:

    1) The standrad is new and still being finalized
    2) 11 Mbits/s is all you EVER need unless you are streaming HDTV signal over your home wireless network which I am sure you are not

    I also called D-Link customer service about my airplus 802.11b card and as somebody else already wrote hold time was short and I got professional help from an AMERICAN rep.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Don't try using this for serious online gaming
    I bought this router because the Linksys version B would not work with my version of AOL (9.0 optimized). This one worked just fine. One problem though, when playing games that transfer a lot of data, such as Planetside or City of Heroes, I lose connection every now and then. Other online MMORPG's work fine 99% of the time (have only been dropped from them about 3 times). So, if you are thinking of purchasing this, or any wireless router, for heavy gaming make sure you get a G model and not a B.

    3-0 out of 5 stars First time was chore, but now works great
    (4 stars if you read the instructions) I had some issues installing the router to the modem and getting my wiress connection in the other room to read the wireless signal, but that wasn't the fault of the router, the software or the installation process. It was my fault for jumping ahead of the game. If you are running a cable modem, make sure you have reset your DHCP by un plugging your modem first and repopulate the DHCP IP upon the modem reboot.
    From there the process works great for what I am using it for. My main "surfing" computer is hard-wired in to the router and I am at about 2500 kps. The wireless access point is sold and the computer in the other room with much less internet use is connected all the time able to surf, retrieve mail and download files quickly.
    I am running a secured WEP connection and followed all the installation suggestions in the manual the website to keep my Access Point secure.
    The price is great when you include the rebate .

    Just remember the promises of works out the box only apply if your read all the installation instructions.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Buy
    I got this router (...) last winter to provide wireless/wired access in my dorm room for my many visitors and studymates. It was fairly simple to set up a MAC address filter and mount the hub to the side of my desk with double-sided tape. Occasionally, I have to leave it unplugged for a few minutes if it stops projecting wirelessly, but otherwise, it provides wireless and/or wired access 24/7. This is a good machine for someone who is interested in simple setup, fair range, and sufficient speed. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars easy setup, picture not great
    The quality of the video deteriorates dramatically in bad light.

    In broad daylight the image is just ok - not really any better than any number of cheaper, wired webcams.

    The main feature is the fact that it is wireless, which means you can set it up anywhere within range of your wireless router (I have a Dlink router but it really shouldn't matter - the instructions provided pertain to the camera's IP address on your LAN: 192.168.0.20). The great thing about this configuration is that you don't have to leave a computer on to put video from your LAN onto the internet. When it works, it's great.

    To make the camera visible from the web (outside of your LAN) you need to follow the directions for setting it up behind a router, on the manual that is provided on the CD. The reviewer who couldn't get tech support for this (doesn't surprise me) evidently didn't notice this CD-based manual. Basically you need to map whatever IP address your provider (in my case Comcast) is currently mapping to your cable modem, and then on to the camera.

    After a couple of days, the camera does seem to hang a lot for no apparent reason. I really wish I knew if the more expensive Dlink wireless cameras are worth the extra money, because I love the idea of wireless cameras that are always on, communicating directly with the wireless router, connected to a cable modem, which are always on.

    1-0 out of 5 stars waste of TIME and MONEY
    On my 3rd one, Tsch support told me the first two were defective. Now 3rd doesn't work either. 3 computers, 2 different routers, 3 different cameras. I regret ever buying this camera!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not the one i want
    I have bought this camera for test purpose. For I have been doing research on the IP Camera market by testing all the Network Cameras.
    But I observed most of the network camera I have played with have poor quality under low light condition. After I tried, this Axis 205 one has same low light issue too.
    So with this price and the feature they offer, I would not suggest buying it. I know other network cameras with same quality and feature have better price to offer.
    Recently I just found out one network camera named IP Camera 8000 from tlcstream.com (if you search Google with keyword ¡®IP Camera¡¯). This network camera has a lot more features than Axis 205 has. It has motion detect, email and ftp notification, more frequency and more resolution options, two level security authorization with more feature built-in. It also supports MSN and Yahoo messenger by acting as webcam. And the price to get is $99. I would suggest people to try this incredible deal -- better price with better quality.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera - great price - good software
    I have two of these and they have been working great for about 2 months. Getting them setup is a little goofy (I think D-Link should default to DHCP not some hard-coded address). You cannot beat the price/performance of these guys.

    The IPView software that is provided really kicks these things up a level. I am able to have my screen split into 4 parts to show up to 4 cameras at once. You can also access each camera via a web browser (passwd protection, java or active-x, ability to ftp images, etc)

    I HIGHLY reccomend these cameras. I have used Axis products in the past - and yes the image on the Axis is better - but the price was 20 times higher also.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Image quality won't do
    I've been going through webcams trying to find one that works well, is network ready and costs less than $300.

    The D-Link DCS-900 does work but the automatic brightness control is constantly changing the picture brightness. It's fine if you're just looking at the picture but when you use a motion sensing capture program, you constantly get false motion triggers.

    Doesn't work for me. ... Read more
