Nice Format, Horrible Device, Slow

Bucky Badger "BJ", Amazon
19 July 2014
  • Summary: Very nice footprint device. However, that is where the pro's begin. How in the world they can call this a 300 Mbps device is astounding. I ran Oookla's internet speed test several times and the fastest I could get was 25 Mbps! In ad-hoc/infrastructure mode the most it reached was around 58 Mbps.

Jeff M., Newegg

  • Summary: The only driver available on dlinks site is for linux

dies suddenly after 3 weeks

  • Summary: It would seem that since these type of devices generate a lot of heat, you need to buy an internal card instead, inside the machine, one that is well cooled, like a custom built pc.

Completely useless

Anonymous, Newegg
18 November 2012
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Did not detect any networks. There are plenty of networks in range of a real wireless adapter. Called technical support. Some guy asked me the name of the product and then asked me to to wait while he "checked something". He never got back. Avoid this worthless garbage at all costs. Avoid D-Link ...

  • Summary: I have this installed on a desktop and right next to it is a laptop with built-in wireless (both run on XP SP3). both are for kids' homework/use. the wireless router is only about 20 feet away through a couple of wood walls.
  • Pros: small
  • Cons: frequently drop signal. seldom has full-strength signal. expensive given lack of performance.

Nothing shy of FAIL

Vince A., Newegg
14 November 2010
  • Summary: Better off buying DWA-140
  • Pros: Low profile, convenient for laptop use. As always D-Link set-ups are simple and fast.
  • Cons: Complete garbage, inferior signal. Best used for email, internet, and very light downloading.

User Review

OSUEE, Walmart

  • Summary: I have a Netgear-N WAP. I could get the D-Link Wirelss N Nano to connect to my WAP in the B/G mode but not in N mode. I never could get it to work regardless of the driver, configuration or location. It works fine in the B/G mode.
