Matched with the right router, it works very well

by Paul B on 5/13/2007

I own a dlink DI634M router that supports Dlinks 108G XR MIMO standard. I have a desktop that was moved from a wired location to a wireless location. I ordered and installed this card about a month ago and give it a week before moving away from the wired jack. Here is what was important to me: 1) reliability. Its my kids computer and and I don't want to support it more than necssary. 2) security. I needed to be sure that its data was encrypted as possible so when we use it for orders and personal data it does not get viewed by others. 3) performance. I sometimes do digital photography from my dlink shared drive and need to go as fast as possible. This card advertised these features and it met them . I installed and configured it. It connects and stays connected I can look at my router log and see that it reconnects, but there are no user impacts / complaints. I set it up for WPA2 AES for security. That's as good as it gets. And, I measured and calculated throughput, on a LAN to LAN copy.. about 80megabits. I am happy with this card and its a good choice for those matching with Dlink XR MIMO routher like the DI634. I'm sure it works with other brands as well.

This thing is amazing. I used to have just a linksys 54mb usb adapter on my d-link dgl-4300 in my apartment and i would pick up about 7-8 other wireless connections all very low signal which was fine, i have my own cable connection so i dont care. but when i hooked this adapter up, im not kidding you i had over 30 different wireless connections, ones from had to be across the street as there are only 8 apartments in one building. and the ones that i used to pick up with the linksys at low signal would be full strength, this thing really give you a ton of range and speed, definitely worth it!!! highly recommended!!!!!
