Do not buy, use Dixie cups and string for better results

JR "JR", Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: DO NOT BUY...... Dlink was at one point the go to company, no more. They are making junk and not standing behind their products. This is the latest and last product from them that I will ever buy. The unit is brilliantly marketed too bad the money is all in the marketing and not in the technology. You would have better luck with string and Dixie cups connecting to any network.

Sending this back.

Sara Stadler "Sara", Amazon

  • Summary: I HATE this adapter! Connecting to the internet after being in sleep mode is a PITA, every time! I have to really mess around with it, plug it and unplug it- try different ports- I often get a message stating that one or more of my USB ports are malfunctioning, I go into the stupid and seemingly unnecessary "D-Link connection wizard" program and enter my password ten million times in an attempt to get it to connect, it connects to... the adapter?

works great, replaces some of my non functioning edimax adapters.

Maleko "islndsnw", Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: Very fast even though it's just AC600. I bought these as spares as i didn't know if i'd need to expand my AC network. I was using all Edimax products which seemed to work great at first, then i would eventually get connection and reliability issues and i wasn't sure why. No errors reported from edimax, always said connected at some really good speed like 585Mbps.

I have two story house and signal isn't so great with older N draft

TMavC5, Amazon
17 October 2014
  • Summary: I am not sure what everyone is complaining about this. I'm using DLINK AC1900 DIR880L with this adapter to take advantage of the signal and faster speed transferring data between my laptop and NAS. I have two story house and signal isn't so great with older N draft. See snap shot.

You get what you pay for!

JER, Office Depot
6 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Well set up was quick and easy but performance was only marginal. Don't get me wrong, it works fine and in my case that was a blessing. It is however rather slow and if you're trying to download something...well forget it....still for reading e-mail and typing (like this review) it works fine. If I were to buy another, I would pay a few more bucks and go for a upgrade. Still beats the cost of a new desk top!
  • Pros: value, Easy to Use, ease of installation
  • Cons: Performance
