You're not going to find a 64bit PCI card worth a damn.
Can you use PCIe?
If not you should look at USB Solutions.

This Rosewill solution would be nice as you can move it around as needed.

Why no USB adapter? Currently you've got better options with USB adapters.

Not really, it runs very warm and early cards had Firmware issues.

Rev2 is probably why.

I have an original version. They were/are not nice products. Though D-Links first run of products in the WiFi N business were pretty bad. The USB Keys had a high failure rate, there was huge bugs with the first version of the DIR-655 & DIR-615. The PCI card could over-heat in some cases (namely the poor airflow HP & Dell micro ATX towers.)

Well my DWA-552 is a piece of junk. I have to use Atheros drivers for it to even work properly (no Dlink crap) and even then it gets an OK signal and will drop out from time to time. Sometimes I have to go as far as removing and reinstalling the drivers to get it to work properly again. And the router is like 10 feet away!

If either of you have any insight as to what I may do to keep from throwing it away and buying something else, please let me know. Any way to update the firmware? Not sure which rev mine is. While it's working (for no more than a month or so at a time...I've had it for over a year) it's OK, but most of the time I feel it's a $70 paperweight.

As for OP, only input I can offer is to stay away from the Dlink DWA-552 at this point in time. It's a shame, because I thought it was one of the nicer PCI cards. It would be a shame to waste a PCI-E slot on a WiFi card considering the bandwidth necessary is very minimal. Personally I'm seriously considering that Rosewill adapter Tator Tot linked above, with all the issues I've had with my current adapter. 5 star reviews from "average" users means it's probably pretty user-friendly and non-troublesome.

Hmm, well if you ever get the chance, get your hands on a rev 2.

I just took out all three antennas, and I still get identical speeds as with the antennas in.
(My router is just down the hallway)

I'm thinking you guys used the first revisions. There should be a sticker on the card that says the hardware revision.
Mine says A3 Rev2

I'll have to dig in my case and figure out which rev it is. Will probably do that tomorrow.

It just irks me because sometimes it will work fine, other times it will just run like crap...as in it will get a medium connection connected at Wireless G speeds, but my download speed will be like 2Mb/s when I normally get 5Mb/s...and EVERY other computer in the house, including LAN and WLAN is getting full speed. Then it will drop the connection and make me reboot to reconnect, or to go even further it will sometimes require a full driver reinstall to get it working again. Very frustrating.

I will look at what rev I have. Maybe I can RMA it and get a rev 2 from Dlink or something if that seems to be a less troublesome rev.
