To get this card to work, follow the following tutorial: http://ubuntu-virginia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=5890620#post5890620 and you should be able to get this card (and possibly this chipset) to work properly. The howto is what I have done to get it to work, and it has worked very well.

Worked out of the box in 7.04, 7.10 and 8.04. WPA worked automatically in 7.10 and 8.04. In 9.04, works out of the box, but system hangs periodically with the ath5k driver; you must instead enable the madwifi driver in the Hardware Drivers dialog to get a stable system. In 9.10, does not work out of the box.

Works with Relatek binary drivers for Windows and ndiswrapper, but requires a small modification to the PCI ID in NET8180.INF. Refer to this page for more details. Note that at least with 2.6 kernel the orginal D-Link Windows driver that comes with the card has serious problems and may cause a system restart.

(Intrepid 8.10) already had my home wireless keys and settings saved from previous trials with a USB wireless adaptor. the d-link card was detected on boot, and the network just connected with no additional actions required by me. I also tried it with the 8.10 Live CD, it worked perfectly. Transfer rate from shared hard drive 1.2MB/sec.

Revision E1 has changed chipset from rev. D. Chipset manufacturer has driver source here. (Look for "RT61", D-Link product name is not mentioned). Driver sources are GPL, but attached firmware files apparently carry no explicit license.

The card is working for me on HARDY. It used rt61pci kernel module. Worked by plugging it in and then installing Xubuntu. "Act" light blinks properly, but "Link" light does not. (Chipset manufacturer has driver source here) Comment: Works fine out-of-the-box on 8.10.

Promises Linux Support on the box, and indeed works directly just by plugging it in on a fresh install of 9.10, with correct driver recognized by system. Both LEDs working properly. Couldn't have been easier.

On 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake): automatically detected, it works fine without encryption and WEP open key, but doesn't work with WEP shared key. On 10.04 (Lucid) it works out-of-the box with encryption WPA and WPA2 Personal

No

The device ID was removed from hostap_cs.c during the merge of those sources into the kernel, and for some reason is in orinoco_cs (likely because the DWL-650 works with orinoco_cs). People have been notified and a patch has been submitted. This card needs firmware loaded in order to work. Full details on getting this card working in Ubuntu are here and here

DAPPER: Nearly works out-of-the-box, but had to add "wireless-rate 11M" to /etc/network/interfaces + reboot or two. BREEZY: Works out of the box with breezy. Works well, even with WEP. (Note: Some G520 may use acx100 instead.) HOARY: Rev. B of this card will not work out-of-the-box with Hoary--the madwifi drivers that shipped with Hoary are too old. An updated linux-restricted-modules* package is available here Note that this package is not officially supported. Some users have reported problems with WPA in the forums.

Works in Breezy (just configure it from the gnome network config tool), though it isn't recognized during installation. Works only via ndiswrapper in Warty and Hoary. (But check your hardware and firmware version against those below which succeeded. Maybe this is an old entry.)

Should work (Card is recognized and kernel drivers loaded, so connecting to a unsecure Open System A.P. while installing should work)

Yes

Yes

Open System Access Point and WEP work out of the box. For WPA-PSK I needed to install wpasupplicant (not included in Ubuntu before v6.06). I used the Debian Sid package without any problem. This card also works with ndiswrapper. I used a D-Link DI-624+ router to test it. (upgraded firmware of the router, not related to linux nor the wifi card, router rebooted itself even when connecting a windows machine with a ethernet cable, applied last firmware, now doing fine). Update: On Edgy recognized out of the box by Wireless LAN Manager including WEP. WPA works with Knetworkmanager. On Feisty, requires linux-restricted-modules. Works with Knetworkmanager on WPA. WEP not tested.

DWL-G650+

acx100

No

No

No

Does not work for me unless I recompile the pci_acx module with latest patches. After that it works. WEP not yet supported for acx111 cards. Added_note: I confirm this card does not work with a default Hoary install: despite the fact that it worked fine with my Hoary install from Array 5. Go figure. The fault seems to be related to an error in loading the firmware which is present in the hotplug firmware folder.

DWL-G650+

no (ndiswrapper)

Works with WEP. It is out-of-the box as much as ndiswrapper can be (manually install of win drivers). However, it shows 100% range all the time
