Works fine for me!

on 8/17/2005

I bought this card for my PC (OS = Win XP Pro) I custom built 2 years ago. I now need the card because I moved to an area that has wiresless internet available. Oh and the main wireless router is downstairs (D-Link newer model of some sort) Anyways, I followed the instructions exactly as stated in the manual (which came with the card of course) and it didnt work at first. After reading on more in the Appendix & Utilities section, I quickly solved my problem and am now up and running with NO PROBLEMS. Overall, I probably spent 10 minutes TOPS installing the software, the card, and making everything work properly and couldn't be happier. My computer is currently located on the 2nd floor of a 2 story home and the main wireless router is approx. 50 ft. away. I receive 86% strength at 54mbps.

Bought it when I moved to NYC because I knew the main router would be in another room and there was NO WAY I could run a straight Cat-5 line to my computer so I ordered this card. I followed the instructions for installation, and it was up & running with no hassles ever since. (Took about 10 mins. total to install the card and get it fully operational and setup on my comp.) I've had this card for several months now and can't complain at all. Great buy!

Product Overview

D-Link, the industry pioneer in wireless networking, introduces another breakthrough in wireless connectivity — the D-Link AirPremierTM AG DWL-AG530 Wireless PCI Adapter. This tri-mode, dualband adapter gives your desktop PC a versatile way to wirelessly connect to any one of three available wireless networks — 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11a that operate in two discrete, non-interfering frequency bands: 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

If you are a network administrator, the versatile 802.11a/b/g-compatible DWL-AG530 expands your existing wireless network and protects your overall network investment. By installing DWL-AG530s in desktops throughout your organization, your employees can access wireless APs or routers from their desktop PCs. As your company expands or reorganizes you won't need to spend time and resources re-cabling Ethernet wires because wherever the workstation is relocated to, it will still be wirelessly connected to the network. When you add an 802.11a/b/g access point (D-Link AirPremier AG DWL-7100AP) or router (D-Link AirPremier AG DI-784), to your wireless network, you will have an complete wireless solution.

With the enhancement of D-Link 108AG, the DWL-AG530 can transfer data with a maximum wireless signal rate of up to 108Mbps in a pure D-Link 108AG environment through the use of new wireless technologies such as Packet Bursting, FastFrame, Compression & Encryption, and Turbo mode. This provides bandwidth large enough to handle video/audio streaming and Video on Demand (VoD) applications. The additional (802.11a) 5GHz band also offers a way to quickly transfer data in a frequency range that does not usually experience interference or interruptions.

WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and 802.1x user authentication are both integrated into the DWL-AG530 chipset to offer enhanced security so employees can communicate with colleagues confidentially or access sensitive data. The DWL-AG530 is a high-performance, versatile PCI adapter meant for anyone who needs to connect their desktop PC to a wireless network whether at home, at school, or at the office.
