D-Link DWL-520+ PCI Wireless networking card


Official Dribble

The D-Link AirPlus DWL-520+ PCI Adapter is an enhanced 802.11b adapter featuring advanced silicon chip technology from Texas Instruments. The DWL-520+ is fully compatible with the IEEE 802.11b standard making it interoperable with all existing 802.11b compliant devices. Now you can transfer files or communicate up to 20% faster than previous 802.11b solutions, even when connected to a standard 802.11b network. When you�re connected to other D-Link AirPlus products, the performance is even greater � up to 22Mbps!



Operating Systems


No support as yet, D-Link will release a Linux driver in first quarter 2003 External linkDlink support. Actually it looks,as if there will be no Linux-Driver for quite some time, since Texas-Instruments doesn't release the source-code for the acx100-Chipset
It seems they're not in a hurry...
In the web of DWL-650+ we are searching solutions to run this chip, acx100 ...... see the DWL-650plus page

Well one thing to try on linux is the External linkACX100 wireless network driver project
Congrats the the External linkACX100 guys, they have drivers for linux are now stable enough to be used.


Drivers in the box.


Updates realeased with each driver update

Misc Notes

Based on a TI chipset - acx100.

Supports proprietary 22 Mbit mode to other D-Link AirPlus equipment.

Pigtails available from Rojone, or they also come with the D-Link external antenna kits.

Supports "256 bit" WEP.

Requires PCI 2.2 compliant slot. ?
On PCI 2.1 it works too.

A cool thing with this card is that you can remove the cover and pop out a
