If you have an old D-Link Air Plus DWL-520+... Wi-Fi card for a desktop.... and you have a needy old laptop... take the two screws out and pull the D-Link Air Plus Logo cover off and throw it away Pull the card out of the mini PCI connector and Guess what? You have a Texas Instruments ACX 100 Internal Wireless Interface card that fit and WORKED in my old Dell Latitude 610 Pull off the antenna connector, and cut the wire ( it comes from the power supply ) close to the circuit board with finger nail clippers and guess what? I took the bottom cover off my old dell latitude 610 running Ubuntu and the dang thing WORKED!! PASS IT ON! It WORKS! Im still blown at my incredible luck this evening apparantly the old d-link pci card accepts and coverts laptop mini internal pci cards for desktop use.. regards Arnie Lerma More about : link 520 nic acx 100 compatible internal wifi dell jimisan August 19, 2009 8:48:14 AM I've downloaded a few drivers for D-Link Air Plus DWL-520+ but none of them fits. Just wondering if you could post a link for a copy of your driver so that I can try it out. Hopefully your copy will solve my problem. Thank you in advance. Rgds, Jimi Can't find your answer ? Ask !
