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

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, 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. D-Link DWL-650 Wireless 802.11b PC Card
list price: $49.99

Manufacturer: D-Link
Sales Rank: 4927

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan 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 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

1-0 out of 5 stars awful - don't waste your time.
thought i'd suggest this to a friend to try. Complete waste of time. Intermittent setup problems with win xp, had to disable then enable all the time. XP configuration would only intermittently show out our home network that would always show up on netstumbler, even after disabling all security features.

I'm pretty good with computers, and can build a computer from parts. So despite some negative reviews, I was wondering how bad could this be? Well, it's going back in exchange for a linksys.

1-0 out of 5 stars BAD BAD BAD
This product is horrible. It took three calls to tech support to get it "working". It drops the connection all the time even when the signal is very strong. I am using a D-Link DI-624 router. I will be removing this card and returning it today.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!
Please save yourself a lot of wasted time. Go with a different brand. This card is very bad. It randomly rebooted my machine while I am surfing the internet. I reinstalled my old 802.11b card, no more unwanted reboot.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad
I have problems keeping connections. Sometimes I am connected but no data flows. Sometimes I stay connected for a very long time, sometimes not. Range from router has nothing to do with it, I had the same problems three feet from my router.

Very puzzling, unreliable performance. I plan on returning the item.

1-0 out of 5 stars Junk
This card could not hold a connection more than 5 minutes and then I had to battle to get it to reconnect. I am 5 feet from my wireless router that works fine with other wireless device. It also freezed my machine sometimes. After two calls to techsupport, the recommended that I return the unit, which is what I will do.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works pretty well for its intended use
Background of my set-up: I have an HP computer with a cable modem internet connection with Comcast. I purchased a Dell computer for an office downstairs. I bought the DI-624 router and purchased the DWL-120 to connect the HP computer to the internet connection as the Dell is connected to the DI-624 router by an ethernet cable.
My conclusion: The router works great. I would highly recommend it. The DWL-120? My wife uses the HP for just occasional surfing and light internet use. It works great for that. If you are a heavy-duty internet user you will experience occasional delays as the signal constantly fades from good to poor. I believe another review stated the same. It may not bother you. All in all it's a great device with super easy set-up. I just can't say to the frequent, impatient internet user that you'll be totally happy with it. I have not tried any other wireless products so I cannot compare my impression with others.
Bottomline: This product was super easy to set-up and it's getting the job done and best of all, my wife doesn't complain.

1-0 out of 5 stars Form Over Function
Initially I purchased the D-Link DWL-G120 because it has an exceptionally nice design. Sleek, compact, slick. Afterall, I thought, all these 802.11 wireless adapters are pretty much the same internally, right? Wrong.

I spent over three hours trying to get the DWL-G120 to work on my Dell 4600C system with Windows XP Professional. Despite the fact that the adapter was reporting a wireless signal in the 30-40% strength range, and the 95-100% quality range, I still couldn't get a stable internet connection with it. Pinging always resulted in 50-100% packet loss.

My other equipment with built-in 802.11g works just fine on my network, so I knew something was wrong with the D-Link product. To test my theory, I purchased the NetGear WG121 for roughly the same price as the D-Link box, and my Dell was on the web in less than 30 minutes. I rest my case. Caveat emptor.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hiccup from the G120 but so far so good.
I bought the G120 and a DI-620 rev C router to connect a new machine running XP. I had to reinstall the driver more than once after XP could not find the G120 USB hardware. I downloaded and installed a newer driver version (1.12) from the D-link site to correct "connectivity problems" acknowledged by D-link. I am not sure if everything is fixed yet, but it works. The reported signal surges to excellent then can drop to poor. The ExtremeG protocol uses multichannels, with a forced use of channel 6, to get the high bandwidth. I suspect cross talk from somewhere in the neighborhood is impacting reported performance, independent of hardware. The main bandwidth limit is the cable connection anyway. The router sofware control is powerful. The security features alone redeem any hiccups with the G120.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Performance from such a Tiny Device
I have this installed on my Windows 2K Professional loaded laptop. Installation was super quick and easy, and using it now only requires that you plug it in. Once plugged in it starts up the software and connects to your AP in seconds.

Security is tight with the 128-bit WEP, and MAC filtering on my DI-624, plus the speeds and range are both great. I can be anywhere in my 1500 sq. ft. home with this wireless adapter on my laptop. Thanks D-Link

5-0 out of 5 stars This Works Great on my Shuttle XPC
I am running Windows XP on my new Shuttle XPC and this USB adapter plugs right in the back of it and sits on the top of my desk and receives strong reception from my wireless access point two rooms down the hall.

The installation was simple, is easily plug and play now, plus it looks good and small on my desk. The software is nice and easy to use and it doesn't intrude on my desktop, or make annoying flashing/blinking icons.

Speeds are fast, web surfing is the same speed as being wired, and playing games online is not effected by being wireless, even with 128-bit WEP enabled. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars compatibility issue and poor reception
my co-worker bought this card, and unable to install driver on dell laptop
yes, I have no luck at all to install the driver
but when I install on my fujitsu laptop, it can be done easily
however, the result for me is disappointing, it get low in reception, while other can get good to very good

luckily I didn't get the card, but I'll suggest my co-worker to return this card if the netgear card I borrow to him is working, due to compatibility issue

4-0 out of 5 stars Clear documentation, easy to setup
I'm a first-timer when it comes to setting up wireless network to access broadband internet.

And with this card, I've FINALLY manage to get everything to work together. My home network now includes: Linksys router, Netgear wireless-G card on my laptop (win2000), and this D-link card on my wife's laptop (win98se).

Comments on this card:
- very simple and clear (full-colored) instructions to setup.
- works well with win98se and win2k. I set it up within about 5-10min to work with the win98se laptop, which refuses to take the Netgear card. With Netgear, I spent 5 hours and it still did not work.

- I feel the Netgear card is better in terms utility software and rescanning. If you are securing your network, the utility that comes with the card does not accept passphrase. This is a little inconvenient when you need to reset your password on your router. Netgear's utility provides a passphrase tool.
- When the wireless connection is broken (eg I switch off the router), the netgear card and utility rescans more quickly than d-link does. (netgear takes 10 sec, d-link takes about 18 sec. from the same spot.)

In terms of tech support, I've tried them all.
- Linksys has best tech support.
- Netgear's support is outsourced to India - and they don't quite care what you think about them. They kept pushing the blame to my ISP and router when the card didn't work on the win98se laptop.
- D-link support is also from India, I tried it before when I bought a USB hub and didn't like it. They gave you a case number for email correspondence, but don't followup.

When I was at Best Buy, the sales rep said linksys experienced much less returns than netgear and d-link, but linksys is usually more expensive. i guess you pay for reliability and better service.

Hope these comments help.

1-0 out of 5 stars wpa doesn't work
Tried using this card with the dlink DI-524 router. WEP works well but WPA doesn't for longer than a few mins as the connection just gets dropped. Returned both the dlink router and pc card for another brand which both work very well in WPA mode.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I wanted.
I recently purchased the D-link 802.11g/b card. I had been very hesitant to purchase a card because I'm a bit new to wireless networking. What I wanted most was an inexpensive, easy to setup, easy to use device with all the normal features such as WPA.


1-0 out of 5 stars Device problems with Windows XP
Although the device appears to operate just fine as far as the network, speed, and range is concerned, the card has a serious problem running on laptops under Windows XP.

I spoke today (April 26, 2004) with D-Link customer service, and they said that the card is "new" and may still have driver issues. Also, they are aware that under Windows XP, the card is unable to wake up after standby/hibernation. This is what I experienced with my Thinkpad laptop. So the card installs OK and operates correctly....but the moment the laptop goes into standby the card will turn off, and then when the rest of the laptop wakes up the card will not. I have to reboot to wake it up. The kind telephone representative I spoke with was hopeful about a driver fix soon. I am not sure if the problem is only for some brands of laptops or all of them under Windows XP. I think I will return my card for another brand with better drivers. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Please do not support a business that does not offer support
Me, like many others have the problems with the Blue Screen of Death, and an NMI Parity error. It has nothing to do with memory or anything else. There is a problem with the driver which D-Link have done nothing to remedy. They have been continously confronted with the problem, but does not offer any solutions except for one that solves the problem on a particular Compaq model.

This company does not deserve any customers. Please buy another WLAN card.

1-0 out of 5 stars another problem device
I echo other complaints about the DWL520. The connection is made with very good signal strength and quality. However, the device refuses to make any throughput. It would almost never successfully load a page. The irony is that I am using another Dlink product as the router. The 520 is a poor product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Product is junk and tech support a joke.
Using this wirless network card dropped my internet download speed from 2700 Kbps to 1200 Kbps.

That's with link quality of 100 and only one other computer on the network with no applications running on either computer (aside from the one browser window required for the test). Both computers had brand new DLink DWL-520 Wireless network cards operating into a new DLink DI-514 router.

Following industry standards, DLink apparently mans their first echelon phones with technical illiterates who while capable of following a scripted check list, haven't a clue what's causing your problem or how their sequence of steps might might solve it.

So, after numerous calls, multiple case IDs, and never talking to the same person twice, I decided it was best to cut my losses and give up before they reconfigured my computer to the point where it wouldn't work at all.

If you surf the web a lot or do internet gaming, stay clear of DLink products. Stick with a reputable name and save yourself the aggravation and wasted hours trying to make cheap junk like this work. The money you save isn't worth the headaches.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and money.

I bought this NIC at CompUSA for $40 and thought it would make a nice, low cost wireless card. This thing was a nightmare from start to finish. The configuration utility that comes with it is totally counterintuitive. Nothing is where you think it would be. After installation, it detected my wireless network just fine. Steady 80-90% signal strength with NINETY-FIVE PERCENT packet loss. The connection would be stable for two minutes at the most and then die. I tried different PCI slots, I tried different channels, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software... nothing worked. I called D-Link support multiple times and spoke to a totally clueless "technician" each time. They offered such pearls as "try a different router" and "try uninstalling your sound card". Please.

There are plenty of other complaints online about this piece of junk. Don't bother buying this card. It's a complete joke.

1-0 out of 5 stars Major software bug and NO customer support
The 520+ "works"... for the most part. However, it
has a fundamental software bug that causes an NMI memory
parity error on shutdown causing your computer to freeze
with a "blue screen" and error message. There is no way
out of the freeze unless you unplug the computer.

For Compaq's they have a workaround to their bug. You may...
may... might be able to workaround their bug by diddling your
system BIOS (always a fun adventure unless you botch up a keystroke). For HP (and possibly others) there is no workaround. You are stuck. Repeated emails to D-Link have yielded nothing, which says something about there customer "service".

Stay away from D-Link unless you like pulling the power
plug in and out on your computer. Poor, buggy software and NO
customer service.

Use and install at your own significant risk. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great card!
I bought this card over 6 months ago, and it has worked great. The physical (PCI) installation is simple and straightforward. The driver installation on floppy took a little while, till I used the "help" folder (in DOS window) and reviewed OS specific instructions (W98SE in my case). The manual is skimpy on the driver/software installation. I use it with the DI-704 router which is just great. I called D-Link tech support once on another issue, and they were very helpful. From personal experience I have been extremely pleased and would recommend D-Link and/or Netgear, in terms of product quality and tech support. I have tried Linksys products twice, and returned them, and would never try again due to very marginal performance and even worse tech support.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for home networks.
The D-Link DFE-530TX+ is a great buy for your home computing needs. If you transfer large files between computers on your home network, having Fast Ethernet (100 Mb/s) connectivity is essential; this card will allow you to add it without breaking the bank. Of course, you will need a 100 Mb/s switch (or at least a hub) to connect them and benefit from the speed.

If you only have one computer at home, and will be connecting to the Internet with a broadband (DSL or cable) connection, the 100 Mb/s advantage of this card is irrelevant, as your broadband connection is slower than 10 Mb/s (standard Ethernet) anyway, and will act as a bottleneck. However, this card is so inexpensive, you can easily justify buying it with the future in mind.

The reason I have given this card only 3 stars is that it does not perform adequately in high-end server and routing applications. I would not recommend this card for use in mission-critical networks.

5-0 out of 5 stars D-Link DFE-530TX+ Ethernet Adapter
Have had several in operation on XP, M.E., and 98 SE computers. Have been mostly trouble free, small problems worked out with assistance of helpfull phone staff. User's guide is somewhat confusing, On page 17, under title "Software Installation" directs you to the "READ ME" file on root directory of installation diskette, of course there is no readme file there. But, well, nobody's perfect.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quick install, works fine, no problems.
Installed in Win. 98 machine. Took seconds to install drivers, a few minutes to install into machine, restarted machine and was ready to go. Easy instructions. Works fine.

3-0 out of 5 stars WARNING - A Good Card BUT Painful Installations
Warning! Recently, I upgraded one of my computer system with the new D-Link DFE-530TX network card and it destroyed my network system configuration file. After I installed their network driver that came with it (installation CDs) I was not able to connect to the Internet. Other computer systems that was on the same router had (no problems) access to the Internet so I knew my network router/cable were fine. I tried to dial out to the Internet but it also failed. Finally, after several hrs debugging the cause of my network problems was D-Link driver installation (CD). It corrupted my MS Windows Winsock file. I had to delete and installed a new Winsock file + Updated the Registry. Overall, the network card is OK but it does KO your MS Windows Winsock file. Used Intel and Linksys network cards with no problems - smooth and paineless installation. In the future, I will stay away from D-Link products and stick with Intel and Linksys. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Mac OSX Kernel Panics
This is a strange one. On MacOSX 10.2.8, it works fine with the DSL modem at 10M, but is a disaster with the school network at 100M. And by disaster, I mean: Kernel Panics. It's the kind of crash where everything stops, the screen dims, and you get the "you must restart your macintosh" in four languages. To address this, I did the following: 1) re-installed the driver (1.1.3); 2) re-installed OSX 10.2.8; 3) re-installed OSX 10.2.8 without preserving user or internet settings; 4) erased my MacOSX partition and re-installed everything from scratch. Still, I get kernel panics within 10 minutes of going online at 100M, and at no other time (even with the card used for 10M dsl; even when card is plugged in but not attached). Note: user reviews of d-link's USB wi-fi dongle for MacOSX record a similar problem.

Until this problem is corrected, I strongly recommend against use of this card for MacOSX 10.2.8 installations.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works Perfectly, Easy to Install
Within 15 minutes of receiving this card I had my local area network up and running between two computers. Admittedly, I was looking to do something very simple: two computers, side by side, connected with an RJ45 cable (not included with the card). The drivers included on the CD-ROM work fine with Windows 98. My only complaints are that the card sticks out of the PCMCIA slot about an inch and that if you remove the card and reinsert it the card needs to reinstall (a simple process). I bought this card as a cheap test to see if I could set up a simple network before trying to tackle a wireless network. I am so satisfied that I will probably buy D-Link wireless hardware.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent product

5-0 out of 5 stars Faster than other 801.11b products
I bought this 650+ with a D Link AirPlus 614+, also supports 22 Mbps. When I tried to transmit some files under 22 Mbps mode, speed was almost same as 11 Mbps mode. I think the firmware and drivers are not optimized well enough. The DWL-650+ has cardbus interface and it's really 20% faster than other 802.11b products which has pcmcia interface as they insist. This router has good web based interface and good quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars Free your laptop from wires
Purchased this card to compliment the DI-614+ wireless router I purchased. Installed this into my HP N5495 PIII laptop (1.06Ghz, 512 MB, Win XP Home) with out any problems at all. Installed drivers as instructed, installed card and it was instantly recognized and windows finished the new adapter installation. As soon as the install finished I was connected. I have heard people having problems installing these D-Link cards without first disabling other network adapters but my computer has two others that are enabled and they cause no problems. I installed my router in the corner of my basement and can roam to the opposite end of our 3 bedroom brick ranch home with no worse than 55% signal strength. My Roadrunner service is providing 275-325 Kbps consistantly on this card almost everywhere in the house. I've had great luck with the card and got a great deal on it. I have also used 3 other D-link products and have nothing but easy installations with good working products.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't upgrade the drivers with Windows XP and a Dell laptop!
After many long hours on the phone with tech support, who was at times helpful, and at other times not helpful, I've come to the conclusion from countless testing and reboots that any drivers except the ones that came with my card do not work.

I believe the driver that came on my install disk was 2.02 or something, that works fine. If you have XP, and/or a Dell laptop (mine is Inspiron 5100), DO NOT UPDATE THE DRIVERS, EVER. You get a blue screen system error about the driver not being equal or something and saying it was dumping the data, etc...

Other that that, the card seems to work fine, however, the distance isn't what I expected and certain walls in my office block it for some reason. I must admit that I've put way too many hours into making this work at home and in the office. It really shouldn't be this hard. Perhaps I'm one of those people that it just didn't work out for. I would honestly buy a different brand before buying D-link again simply because of my poor experience.

4-0 out of 5 stars works better than the linksys card
I 1st bought the linksys wireless network card. I was able to connect to the access point, but not the Internet. Their technical support was clueless. I returned it for the D-Link card. I was able to get it to work on our corporate network but found that for WEP encrpytion it would not autoconvert the catch code phrase into 128 bit hex. However, I was able to find a free Internet converter at which allow me to enter in the code word. It would be nice if DLINK updated their software to do this automatically.

Tech support could not help, switching laptops did nothing. A replacement DWL-650+ showed the same symptoms. I then decided to buy a cheap wireless VCNET 22mbps card (9.95$) and it has never ever lost the connection to the router, the signal is consistently stronger (now I can use it in the back yard where as the D-Link) would drop to a red connection and within seconds lose the connect entirely.
Just a waste of money, go with a no name brand, they work fine. The D-Link router (DI-641+ or better) does perform brilliantly though. ... Read more

Received in two days, and card works very well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great card!
As with all D-Link products I have tried and own, this adapter card works great. It installs easily and comes with a protective case. It is the 16 bit 670TXD card, and I cannot tell any difference in performance between it and the 32 bit 690TXD. The 670TXD will work in any PC card slot, but the 690 TXD needs a 32 bit cardbus slot and costs a little more. If you have an older laptop without a built in 10/100, and you do not want the cost of wireless, then the D-Link 670TXD would be a great choice. Beside the convenience of mobility with wireless, wired is always better in terms of reliability and speed of connection. I have used the 670TXD under W98SE and ME with no problems, and would recommend this card.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cheap Ethernet card, with installation headaches
I've installed and configured several of these cards. Once you get it configured, it is a great card. Unfortunately, the "Plug-N-Pray" feature causes more headaches than it is worth.

If you are running a Windows plug n' play operating system (Windows 9x, ME, 2000) then you shouldn't have a problem.

However, if you are installing this card in an older Windows machine (NT 3.5, NT 4.0, etc), or under Linux you might have some problems. I almost threw up my hands when trying to configure it on an earlier version of Linux.

That being the case, if you are resurrecting an old PC to be an inexpensive home/office fileserver, print server, or custom firewall, then the cheap price might be worth the headaches. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Compatibility with Windows XP
A very small quibble that won't affect most users for now:

The D-Link's Windows 98 and Windows 2000 drivers are not compatible with Windows XP, the next version of Windows now in beta and due to be released late this year. Hopefully Microsoft or D-Link will provide new drivers by the time XP is released. In the unlikely event you're using the Preview Edition of XP already (as I am), avoid this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to setup, works great overall...
After comparing different manufacturers, including LinkSys and 3Com, I decided on this ethernet adapter. My decision was based largely on the price, but the brand (DLink) was also a factor in my decision. The bottom line is that the DSB-650TX is worth every penny.

Installation is so easy that even a first time computer user can do it. The drivers provided on disk are definitely compatible with Windows '98 ME. I'm sure that it's compatible with Windows 2000 as well, but the following will tell you why I don't know for sure...

If your motherboard uses the VIA MVP3 chipset and if you are running Windows 2000, you MIGHT NOT be able to use ANY USB device; Windows 2000 is NOT compatible with the MVP3 USB controller even with VIA's drivers. Hopefully the Win2000/MVP3 problem will be solved in the near future, but I doubt it.

There is only one limitation of the DSB-650TX, caused by the USB standard, since it draws so much power from the USB controller you'll need to dedicate a USB port directly from the controller. The solution to this would probably be a powered hub, but I don't know for sure since I never looked into it. This limitation, however, is a reasonable trade off considering the fact that it eliminates the need for a power outlet.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to setup and use
My laptop has fried 3 ethernet cards and I was looking for a cheap way to have networking functionality without sending it in for repair.

This is my first experience with USB devices, and I was a bit skeptical about getting this thing to work on my 2 year old computer.

I plugged it in and Windows 2000 instantly recognized it, loaded the drivers, and I was up and running in no more than 5 minutes.

Note: I had to download drivers from the D Link web site for Windows 2000 support, but they were easy to find and install.

I haven't done any performance tests, but I got the functionality I wanted for a pretty cheap price. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Product, Great Price - No Documentation
After searching for an inexpensive USB upgrade card, I found the D-Link adapter here, for a terrific price. (...) I too am very handy around a PC, so I took the gamble.

Well, my box also had no documentation! However, installation was simple; here are my tips. I inserted the card into an open PCI slot, and powered up the PC. The card was automatically detected and the install wizard was started. I needed the Win98 disk for the install to continue (looking for drivers), and once inserted, the install completed without issue.

When I went to install a USB mouse, it was not detected! before any other troubleshooting, I left the mouse plugged in, and powered the PC down (not a restart, but a full power down). When the PC was turned back on, the mouse was immediately recognized and installed.

I also installed an older USB scanner, and it too was recognized and installed perfectly.

Again, this is a great product, hurting from no documentation.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Product, Poor Documentation
Adding a USB port to my computer was easy with this D-Link product, but only because I'm good with computers and didn't need much hand-holding. Unfortunately, my box didn't include directions (they were somehow accidentally left out) and the D-Link web site wasn't much help either. But I was able to get customer service on the phone (it was NOT a toll-free call) and complete the installation quickly and without any other problems.

Now that everything is installed, I am very pleased. The D-Link port worked just as it should. This was definitely a great way to add a USB port without spending a great deal of money. If the documentation had been provided, this product would have gotten five stars from me.
