    Unhappy How much is that doggie in the window?

    As a newbie to your forum (but not other forums) I found Chris Oh's article interesting; however, where is the current pricing so that I can determine the true value of this product? What he considers a "con" for the product might not be a "con" to my criteria. Or - to play the devil's advocate - what he finds sensible might be considerably outside my budget. Any article that is reviewed as a personal or SOHO item should include an average price determined by adding up the amounts offered by competing vendors and dividing by the total number of these vendors. Systemlogic.net could fall into the same pitfall as MaximumPC. MaximumPC tends to give their coveted "KickAss 10" awards to hardware that is priced in the upper stratosphere but performs with admirable qualities. I can't see much value in their reviews but I can determine the bar with which I can judge other similar or lesser priced products. Without pricing information I can't truly give credibility to Chris's article because I have no way of determining if his criteria for determining what is valuable is the same as mine. Yet, his article was informative! Just my 2 cents.

    While it might not be the easiest to see, there's a link for "find lowest price" at the bottom of each page of the review.Click here, and you should see some prices for it

    Welcome to the forums omnifox, we hope to see you around quite a bit more

    Just a note about your comment.....Our articles are archived, so you can technically look at our first review ever written if you want. If we were to put the price in there, it can be outdated within two weeks. That is why our reviews in the past few months have a link to find the lowest price on the net for it, the DWL-650 included. In the article you will see article options with a link to find the lowest price. In that case it's this link:

    http://datacenter.ibuyer.net/ierp/a...=1004&id=525080

    This gives you a list of resellers selling the product and how much it costs.

    Hope that helps

    Default Dwl-650/WinXP/Sony PGC971L

    I installed dwl-650 with dwl650_XP_driver_51f.exe driver in a new Sony Vaio PGC971L under WinXP Home Edition.

    It initally worked, but after a few minutes, CHKDSK started, reporting disk errors. CHKDSK would complete, start XP again, and CHKDSK would start again. This loop continued several times.

    I removed the DWL-650, CHKDSK ran once more, XP started, then the PC worked normally.

    I restarted the PC again, and it started and worked normally. I then inserted the DWL-650 and CHKDSK started again.

    Anyone heard of this problem? bshaw@cronosys.com

    Angry Dwl 650

    I purchased the D-Link DWL650 on December 9, 2001. For almost a MONTH, of consistent attempts, could not get the DRIVERS to load, thus recognizing that the CARD was indeed installed/inserted in my Sony PCG-F520 laptop. The Vendor (Office Max) replaced the card, as well as the DWL1000AP, access point (which had no glitches what-so-ever during installation). However the new DWL650 still refuses to work. New drivers as well as several calls to D-Link Help professionals, have produced nothing concrete. I am now about ready to try another type PCMCIA card, and access point. c_a_j@email.com

    Default D-Link

    D-Link's 24/7 support is a bad joke on the consumer. Over 90 minutes of hold time on three separate days never gave me a person to talk to!

    Default DWL-650 is crap

    Im under windows 98 second edition and the drivers wont work with my card, After installing every type of driver dlink offered i experienced a LOT of lockups, driver files not correctly initializing the card, Messing with the IRQ's and memory settings resulted in a BIG FAT 0 in progress. With the drivers installed I got the same results when plugging the card in to my laptop. The system resources would recognize that it was plugged in but the software to configure the card could not see it. Even tho the card was seen in the system device manager I still had the option to upgrade the driver, re-install the driver and then when i installed every type of driver in sequential order to uninstalling and re-installing in every order possible (3 drivers) I ended up with, Windows could not find the problem in the device manager properties which I have NEVER received before. Another laptop a friend of mine has which has windows XP installed experienced similar problems and alot of flaky results.

    My opinion, this card would be better as a coffee coaster, or a vision in a new field of suckiness.

    If anyone has a similar problem and has this garbage fixed they can email me at russell@junglemate.com

    Default !!!Don't buy this card

    I have received two Dlink DWL-650+ cards, which I have tested on two Toshiba Satellite, one HP, two Dell laptops and one laptop with sis chipset. I used windows XP and Windows 2003 Server as operating system.

    THIS CARD DOESN'T WORK!!!

    Only on one Toshiba Satellite, it worked for 10 minutes. I have tested the latest drivers 3.02 and 3.03 as well as the one that came with the cd. NONE OF THEM HAVE WORKED ON ANY OF THE LAPTOPS.


    I don't suggest that anyone buys this card. This is a terrible product. Also in terms of support, there is no mention about those problems.

    I searched the web. there are hundreds of websites where people are talking that the card doesn't work. Is this serie a faulty one?

    Try this out, they have drivers for the 650 but not the 650+.

    http://www.cewindows.net/faqs/wl100driver.htm

    Here is a list of cards that work and the 650+ is at the bottom in the list requiring drivers so you may be out of luck.
