I had the same problem due to my laptop having an in built booster! Please consult the event log for more details. The card is basically a good wifi card, and as it is a higher end card, you might well expect users to have it in a home networked enviroment with other systems of mixed bitness. Get to Know Us.

Posted Vissta 25, Posted May 31, If you’re using, or plan to use, Windows7 especially the bit version visfa I don’t know about bit do check carefully that you can get a reliable driver before buying this card.

The D-link software for managing the card is bit annoyingbut actually you don’t need this as Windows 7 will pick up the card and install the correct driver. Would technical mojo be a better forum to post this?

Intel Core 2 Duo E Wolfdale 3. I only run a type N network and this card picks up at full strenght through 2 dqa556 walls with a visat of about vixta between pc and router and gives a link speed to the router of bista Oh dear,i was really hoping after reading the other reviews here that this product would do a reasonable job on my Windows Bit machine.

However, you may come unstuck if you need to browse 64bot systems on your own network. On the wifi front this card works very well and I have good coverage and speed. It worked for a day for me then caused blue screens and couldnt boot pc. In my machine my one available PCI slot is taken up with a sound card so i have to go the PCI-Express route for a wi-fi card but as i write there seems to be a severe lack of choice available in the market place a very sad state of affairs,come on Manufacturers wake up.


I am running Win Vista x In otherwords, I’d like to install bit Atheros drivers on Vista x64, and THEN install a bit PEEK protocol driver without it giving me an error of “cannot find compatible hardware for this device” Seems very quick in use also – have moved from wired to wireless and can hardly notice any difference in speed.

Windows7 has been out for a month, and it was available to the public as a pre-release version for the best part of a year and probably longer to equipment manufacturers. Whilst Binging the web for solutions, I did also notice a lot of comments around browsing bit networks, with some people turning off the Computer Browser service from services.

Any thoughts on this frustrating, time eating black-hole of an issue? Dogmeat Ars Scholae Palatinae Registered: I’m not able to comment on the increased range for reception – a desktop, out in the road, in the rain, extension cables, might not be a good idea.

Posted August 24, I’ve tried to find a solution to the problem from google and microsoft’s website but have been unsuccessful. I tried to boot from my vista disk but all I get is the default “aurora borealis” background with no options.


There’s a problem loading this menu at the moment. Originally posted by Hellburner: The modded INF is still the same driver, i just enable some hidden settings And also noticed the modded INF driver gets much better range.

So the netstumberler and vistumber will work with or without the modded INF original version For me to mod the driver I need the files mentioned above, with Vista x64 I cannot get to the x86 files. There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

Although this is D-Link’s flagship wireless card they don’t appear to be supporting it properly any more. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.

I had got ready to return the DWA card, but actually now it seems to be working I’ll hang onto it as it does perform well.
