Summary: Great, working product. Sort of ugly to look at, and bulky if you shove it just in the slot, but it has an extension cable to overlook this. You WILL lose the cap. I use these on all my desktops that need wifi. It's a solid product.
Summary: Bought this for a friend who had an old laptop with wireless g and was getting a bad signal upstairs. It did the job and gave him a full signal like he wanted. Only downside is that its kind of big, and it can get warm or even hot.
Summary: I had a an adapter from another company and I was satisfied with that but since 3 weeks I had signal drops and still can't find the reason, out of frustration I decided to go with this adapter and I'm really satisfied, now I have 4 bars instead of the old 2 to 3, and I'm having no drops.
Summary: Can't go wrong for $40. 70% signal 2 full floors up from a wireless G router. Through closed doors. Up to 3 closed doors. Never drops signal. Installing drivers was a breeze. insert CD, let it do it's thing, restart, and done.
Pros: Comes with a USB Cradle, about 3 feet., Black, matches computer., Strong connection from a distance., Doesn't drop ever.
Summary: I had been using a D-Link GWL-G132 for the past 3 1/2 years that only ever got me 4 bars even when I used it in the same room as the router! Now I have a house with a router in the garage, and the GWL-G132 would do 2-3 bars from my computer spot. This wireless N 150 model gives me 3-4 bars in the same new location. I only upgraded my antenna to work with Windows 7.
Pros: Looks better than I thought it would, Comes with USB extension cradle with angled slot, Works with windows 7
Cons: I suppose it's not state of the art as far as antennas go
D-Link DWA-125 brings your old laptop back to life!
15 August 2010
Summary: If you have a laptop that is not compaitable with the new N format routers but you want to take advantage of the increased speed, this is an outstanding option for you!
Pros: Allows me to take full advantage of the speed of my D-Link N Router with my old laptop. Even though my old laptop only has built-in b/g capability, with this D-Link N Adapter plugged into a USB port it turns my laptop into a high-speed N compaitable device. The difference in speed is stunning! In addition to increasing the speed, I have noticed a significant imporvement in range and signal strength.
Cons: It sticks out of your USB port, so it can be a bit precrious if you are balancing your laptop on say...your lap. It is very similar in appearance to a USB protable drive however, most USB drives have rotating covers. The DWA-125s cover is removeable, so when you are using the adapter, you have to find a safe place for the cover so that you do not lose it. It would be much better if the cover rotated like on most USB drives!
Summary: I use this for my WD Live player, very good transfer speed and no connection droppings to play media files, even large ones over the network. I like the extension, it give you the possibility to catch better signal without moving the player.
Summary: Did certainly not for gaming. so if that is your thought avoiding this for anything in the world. otherwise it worked fine for about a year before it decided to cut off my internet for next to nothing. Funkar absolut inte för spel. så om det är din tanke undvik denna för allt i världen. annars funkade den bra i ca ett år innan den bestämde sig för att strypa mitt internet till nästintill ingenting.
Summary: Gjorde absolutt ikke for gaming. så hvis det er din tanke unngå dette for alt i verden. ellers fungerte det greit for omtrent et år før det besluttet å kutte av meg internett for nesten ingenting. Funkar absolut inte för spel. så om det är din tanke undvik denna för allt i världen. annars funkade den bra i ca ett år innan den bestämde sig för att strypa mitt internet till nästintill ingenting.
