The subject says it all. The drivers won't work with WEP under Win2k. The driver utilities to monitor the connection are also a no-go. It will work as just a basic card, but it sucks to have such limited drivers, especailly when a perfectly good linksys card is only $20 more. Never again will I bother with D Link cards.

OK, so do you have any experience with the D-link DFE-530 TX+? Someone I know wants a cheap card to put in two W98 systems to link just those two systems at home (using a crossover cable). He doesn't need speed, and he won't be going through a hub or a switch. Are these any good? (I mostly work with Intel or 3Com stuff at work, so I don't have any experience with the "cheapies").

Any other suggestions for a cheap network?
