DWA 652 Windows 7 Drivers
« on: December 30, 2009, 06:59:01 AM »

Dec. 14, 2011:

Just updated with the D-Link Driver (DWA652_Drivers_160.zip).  Works great under Win-7.

Original Post:

I have been using the Atheros v. 8.0.0.238 (Windows 7) driver released 10/05/09 on a Lenovo X-60 notebook; I have also ordered a second DWA 652 to run on a Dell Latitude-D-630.  This connects to a Linksys WRT-310N v.2 wireless router, in Mixed g/n mode.

All is currently working well (although it is spotty at times), and speeds often drop to 130 mps (300 mps within close range).  Of several adapters I experimented with on these notebooks (Belkin, Linksys, Intel), this one has been the best.

Two questions:

1)  Over the last month, I have contacted D-Link for an updated Win 7 driver and have been advised several times it will be ready in a few days; any updates as to when?
2)  I have a Linksys WRE54G (v.3) range expander used when I was running in G mode.  Can/should this still be used, or will it interfere with the N mode transmissions (I am also posting this same question with Linksys/Cisco)?
