Belkin and D-link

Are Belkink and D-link wireless Routers, PCMCIA cards, and various other products compatible with each other? I would guess yes since they are 802.11g, is that correct?

Most of the time. Guess what happens to you?

To save yourself from testing such waters, stick with a brand and keep the firmware and drivers current in your network.

D-Link and NetGear use the Atheros chipset where Belkin uses the Broadcom chipset. D-Link and NetGear do not play well with others. If your using the Belkin Pre-N router just about all cards will work with this one.
