  • Summary: Thinking I may replace other older ones as they are bulky and over heat.

  • Summary: This is absolutely awful! Without a doubt, the worst piece of computer equipment I've ever owned. About once an hour, both the 5g and 2.4g bands on my router are unavailable, while my son still has access to both. I've written D-Link, but get nothing back. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

  • Summary: The DWA-171 Wireless AC Dual Band Adapter handles the "N" band as well as the draft "AC" band. I was looking for an inexpensive "N" adapter to give to a friend. The DWA-171 was $10 less than a purely "N" band alternative.

Great improvement to my laptop

  • Summary: I had an HP laptop, couple of years old with 16 GB of ram. Though I had upgraded my home networks to AC 1200 and AC 750, my laptop reported only a 50mbps connection and internet use was slow. Bought the USB AC dual band adapter and now it reports 433 mbps and can use the 5GHz band.

Wireless for old operating systems

Amoe , Office Depot
4 November 2015
  • Summary: Purchased for use in upgrading computers to clean installations of the operating systems. Found that it is useless as soon as I upgrade to Windows 10 since Dlink has no driver for this and several other of their currently available WiFi adapters.
