5 out of 5 eggsTouch and go

Pros: One of the most universal standards around, this card is great for people looking to easily boost their range.

I've been installing it in older, refurbished laptops that we sell to students. The range of this adapter is very good through obstacles and functions easily with jurassic laptops.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Great buy. Nice color scheme too.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Installing this card on Windows 7 Ultimate was a breeze. I simply popped the card in. Windows immediately installed the driver and the card was up and running (without installing any D-Link software). An updated driver version provided by Atheros (the chipset manufacturer) came through Windows Update the next time I did an Update scan after installing the card. Simple, easy, and great Wi-Fi performance!

Cons: The only downside to this card is the Link and Activity lights are unnecessarily bright, but that's a minor issue.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Good price, under twenty bucks and shipped free. Card itself works fine - as well as more expensive cards. Newegg got it here fast.

Cons: Do not ignore what others are saying. The software shipped with the card sucks and the card loses an egg because of that. DLink is shipping drivers from 2005 and the website has updated drivers from June 2007. Throw the CD that comes with it in the trash. Download the latest drivers off of DLink's website. Do not run set up. Unzip the drivers, then insert the card. Steer the installation to the appropriated folder for your operatiing system. A minute later you will be up and running.

Other Thoughts: I initially ignored other's advice and installed off the CD. It would drop the wireless connection and reconnect every few minutes. After installing the way described above my six year old eMachine laptop connects to the wireless router & internet great.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card to get your old laptop online

Pros: Works well. As fast as the internal card on my other laptop. +- 15mb/s on my cable wireless network (speakeasy.net) while the wired connection to my desktop gets around 22mb/s

Cons: Other reviewers have noted thatD-Links utility sucks. Follow their advice; insert the card, wait for found new hardware wizard to come up, and have it install drivers from CD. Use windows' wireless connection utility.

Other Thoughts: If windows says that it cannot get a certificate from the network you are trying to connect to (XP). Select the network, click change advanced settings, wireless networks tab, properties, authentication tab, and deselect Enable IEEE 802.x bla bla. this will save you some time.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great With Linux

Pros: Worked straight out of the box with Ubuntu 10.04 on an old HP Pavilion zv6000. Step 1: plug in card. Step 2: Boot computer. Step 3: select network. Just that easy.

Cons: Great big huge status light on the top makes this card somewhat annoying to use in a darkened conference room.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect.. almost..

Pros: also have an old dell 2650.. works perfect with excellent range.. plug it in, boot, install the software, and it works!

Cons: D-link software sucks. also kept reconnecting every 2 min.. used msconfig to disable the d-link software at boot.. problem solved.. so simple to fix, i didnt even take an egg off for that.. i have to do that for every wireless card i ever installed no matter what brand..

Other Thoughts: it does work with xp sp 3.. for every person that has issues with their wireless, try this fix.. start - run- msconfig.. disable the wireless software, save yourself aggravation, and just use the windows zero wireless utility, do not uninstall the software, or you will remove the driver.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: -long range and strong connection
-got it from the box to up and running within minutes
-inexpensive

Cons: -none so far

Other Thoughts: I got this for an old Dell Inspiron 2650 and it works like a charm. Dont install the software from the cd; ignore the directions on the antistatic bag and put the card in first, then let windows open the new hardware wizard. Then insert the cd, ignore the autorun, and let the wizard pull the drivers from it. It hasn't dropped a connection once so far, and i was able to play xbox live on it over a shared connection. Unless something happens to it like it suddenly explodes, i have no complaints about this card.

3 out of 5 eggsPain to install on xp sp3

Pros: Increased my range by 30 ft

Cons: Did not install properly with the install disk. It would continually shut itself off, and I had to restart it each time I turned the computer on (even when Windows managed the connection). In order to get it to work, I had to uninstall everything, download the latest driver from D-Link, manually install the driver, and set Windows for Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) service. Now it is working fine after a day and a half of dinking with it.

Other Thoughts: Price was right.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Linux (Ubuntu 9.04)

Pros: Worked instantly and with no trouble on a 5-year-old laptop running Linux (Ubuntu 9.04).

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Atheros chipset (lspci reports "AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)"). My box says:

Model No.: WNA-2330
H/W Ver.:A2
F/W Ver.:1.10
