Configuration was easy, as long as you're literate on wireless. I'm very impressed with this utility, and recommend this update/upgrade to everyone -- one of the nicest w

Amazing that Dlink does not have a proper driver for XP available. There is a new one out but I just don't want to even try as I am happy it is all in g

"This driver is excellent! It's completely automatic and provides a painless, hands-free install. I would definitely recommend this to other possessors of Atheros chipset based wireless cards, which are notoriously bad when it comes to finding out anything about them beyond "Generic Atheros Chipset Adapter"."

"Take note:

It says "Ekahau" but it means "Antheros".

Also...

Look along the edge of the notebook for the WiFi symbol

(The RKO Pictures antenna) and see if there is a

switch or button to activate the built-in WiFi.

Thanks again DG! (And original submitter!)

Install was a breeze..

Since I selected the Windows network config as default, I had to reboot before I could use the configuration tool included though.

After that things went smoothly...

Note: although this is the Atheros driver; the name is different tho..

Weird oO."
