2 out of 5 eggsVery poor

Pros: Connects to weak signals from distance
No bloatware (one program, but works well)
Plug and play

Cons: Stopped working after 6MO, RMA, 2nd one died after 6 mo again.
While it was working would disconnect every so often, then reconnect. Made streaming video/gaming impossible.

Other Thoughts: There are better, cheaper alternatives out there

1 out of 5 eggsBlowed Up

Pros: Got here quick

Cons: Installed in one computer and got a NMI memory error. Thought it was system, installed in 2nd system...same same. Looked on internet and found many with same problem and no solutions that worked. Not impressed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Excellent performance any problem at all, easy to install, no signal issues, just perfrct.

Cons: Because of the structural conditions I needed to buy an extra antena with extension cable to get it closer to the window for better reception.

Other Thoughts: Since there's no clear description in the specs in reference of the type of connector this card uses I had some difficulties to find the right cable extension, since there are different types.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy.

Pros: It has yet to assasinate anyone I am emotionally attached to.

Cons: Absolutely useless. Picked up barely any signal, with brief (1-2 second) spikes, on a network that 3 other devices (older laptop, iPad and iPhone) all connected to perfectly.

Tech support was a nightmare. Very obviously undertrained team reading off of a Q&A tech support prompt program. Disconnected twice, mutlitple encounters with rude and disinterested staff. When I finally made my way to a tier 2 support rep, the advice was to remove and reinstall the drivers. Would have been hopefuly, except the driver software refused to uninstall. Control panel, the manufacturer's cd, registry editor...no matter what was used, the driver remained installed. I ended up having to perform a full restore (drastic I know, but this was a brand new build so no real harm done in the way of lost data), to get the driver off. Tried reinstalling the driver, to the same result. Tried the Atheros manufacturer driver, same result.
In the end I went with a cheaper USB device. Works like a dream.

Other Thoughts: My Build:

Asus Sabertooth 990fx The Ultimate Force Motherboard
AMD Zambezi 3.6ghz(3.8turbo)Quad-Core CPU- Black Edition
EVGA GeForce 550ti(Fermi)
Ripjaws 8GB (2x4gb) RAM
NZXT Phantom 410 mid-ATX chassis

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: None

Cons: Signal jumps SO much, 20-120 Mbs. I can put my wife' laptop right next to it and everything with her signal is fine at 150 Mbs steady. Downloads freeze before they finish. I finally got fed up and moved the computer next to the router and hardwired it just to downoad drivers and updates.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointing card

5 out of 5 eggsGood, easy to install adapter.

Pros: Slips right into the slot with ease and the drivers install swiftly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If it ever bugs out and won't connect to your internet, simply uninstall and re-install the driver

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine.

Pros: It works just like it should. Nothing more nothing less.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Not sure about the people complaining on this N card. I haven't noticed any lagging or bad performance. It works as flawlessly as a wireless card could be expected to. If you ping your router's gateway (in cmd prompt: ping -t 192.168.1.1) and get spikes in your ping times then you probably need to switch channels. 1-15 should be pretty normal depending on distance and interference. If you see like a 30 or something in there then some network adjustments are needed. But nominally you should be getting like 1,1,1,3,1,1,2,1,1,1,1 etc. just a few milliseconds.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: installed and worked fine, however..

Cons: lifespan if it was indeed the card

Other Thoughts: Used on Windows XP since the PC became extra, but had no way for net access in the location it was in.

Stopped working roughly a month ago (purchased in March, so lasted March-July-ish of the same year). I can't say for sure, but I think the card itself is what went kerplunk.

Other than that, it didn't give any problems.. but it didn't last very long if it was the card itself :(

Even though I haven't tested with another card to see if it was indeed the card, I have a feeling it went bad.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: I have absolutely nothing positive to say about this card.

Cons: This card has been a headache from day one. Tes, its an easy install, but for what? This card is constantly going up and down from 24 to 54 mbps. Playing games? Forget about it! When calling D-Link they connected me to some tech support in Russia...Russia? Then these guys wanted 150 bucks. I called D-link back and nothing was resolved. I will never buy D-Link again. Also, since I build computers for local schools, I will advise against D-LINK.

Other Thoughts: If the customer support wasn't completely worthless, than I would have been kinder on this review.
