Ive just downloaded the manual and the infastructure set up shows a pc
connected to one of the ethernet lan ports, do ihave to have a pc connected
in this way or can all the clients be wireless?

They can all be wireless. However, I would keep at least one PC wired for
firmware updates and troubleshooting purposes.

Can updates and troubleshooting not be done from a wireless client?

The preferred method for updating the firmware is to use wired client.
During updates, wireless connection normally get interrupted making it
risky. If this happen, the only way to connect and troubleshoot the router
is from wired client.

Don't do it. Says so in the manual.

Sorry. I meant don't try a firmware update especially over a wireless
connection; use the ethernet cable for that. It's also necessary to
have a wired connection to do complete troubleshooting. I had a
DI-713P where the wireless side went completely bad, and I had to have
the wired connection to talk to the router at all.

The manuals warn specifically against doing a flash firmware upgrade
over a wireless network; an interruption could lead to a
non-functioning router.

I would like to see a wireless card that also has an RJ 45 plug
for using cable on occasion.

That shouldn´t add all that much to the cost for a card.

Tell us now,

How is that better than having *one* card, with its pricey
delicate network innards, and its wireless thing, plus the
rather simple plug for cable?

Go ahead, there may be a Nobel Prize for you if you succed.

Well it is kinda like the TV with built in VHS.
If one goes bad you have to take the whole thing to the shop.

So with 2 cards, if one card goes bad, you still have the other! ;-)
your *one* card, of course, is neat! lol

I guess I expect some components to fail. :-(

I have several PC NIC cards built for cable, connected through
a "dongle". All have broken dongles.
My plan lately have been to go for wireless but it seems that
the drivers are still too shaky for the DWL-G650+ and my
Thinkpads keeps crashing when I use the wireless network.

I hope D-link will soon sort out the driver problems and I
don´t really feel lika buying yet another cable card for just a
couple of weeks. I might consider a combo thing though, if they
existed.

I have the D-Link DI-524 router 802.11g and D-Link's matching wireless 11g
PCMCIA card for my Thinkpad 570.
It connected very easily to each other, but required me to call tech support
so I could connect to the internet with my DSL modem. Then I got it to work
with my favorite Speedstream 5861 router.

All components play nicely together. <g>
I do have a spare NIC with dongle for the Thinkpad to connect with, if
needed.
