Works great with BackTrack Linux Some Guy (USA) September 1, 2010
I bought this card to use for penetration testing with BackTrack Linux (v4 R1). It works perfectly and is supported by the ath9k driver (it has an Atheros chipset). This card supports monitor mode and can inject packets. If you need a reasonable priced card that will work on Linux, this is it.

Nice setup good coverage thetusk August 26, 2010
Purchased this for my wife's computer and after a few minutes of configuration I was able to connect to my Linksys WRT150N router and presto! Works great and is faster than my Buffalo 802.11G PC card.

No diff then my B-G card Mike August 23, 2010
I plugged theis N network card in, ran the setup and was easy to do so.

Running a Dual band Airport Extream

I get no faster responce times then from this G band network card. Both my internal G and this N card, durring testing, show only 56k speeds. My internal G card, in side my side testing with another similar laptop, was actuially a bit faster.

I dont see any reason to buy this card.

Didn't work Pete the Pilot (Newington, CT USA) July 3, 2010
My rating for this D-Link adapter, might be a little unfair. I have used and am using D-Link products and love them. I have upgraded my network to 80211n and wanted to do the same with my laptop. So I ordered the DWA-652. The first problem I encountered after installing the driver software, was after the reboot. It changed the way Windows XP Pro opened, and I was unable to connect to my network. E-mailed D-link. They had me download latest update, do the un-install and install update. Windows opened properly, but didn't fix connection. After 4 more D-link attempts to resolve problem, they stopped responding. I re-installed my D-link WNA-2330 and everything worked fine. This issue will not prevent me from buying D-link in the future and will always recommend their products to others.

I can't say enough good about AMAZON.COM. They are a wonderful site to do business. I have bought sdhc cards, cameras, and printers and more. Always with satisfaction. Their return site was flawless. Another satisfied and future return customer.

Window XP SP 3 works Book Addict1 "book_addict1" (USA) April 13, 2010
DWA 652 works on Window XP SP3. You need to download the latest driver on the Dlink website instead of using the driver on CD. You have to disable the built in wireless card and uninstall any wireless driver on your laptop. DWA652 works well on my laptop running Window XP SP3 with all latest drivers. I got 100% signal at 300Mb connection! (Remember, read the manual and follow exactly the manual. Otherwise, it won't work!) Don't insert the DWA652 before you install the driver.
