I hope Amazon takes a better look at this item and makes the necessary changes ...

Summary: This device stopped working about a month after I purchased it, just long enough for the option to return expired. It is obviously faulty since numerous others have experienced the same. It is unethical not to have a return policy of say 6 months after purchase.
Summary: This thing has infuriated me too many times from the first time i set it up a year ago to the present. It is difficult for me as a person who had no experience messing with internet adapters and I felt the support and driver installation was not user-friendly.
Summary: Review of the D-Link DWA-140 Wireless USB Adapter after being given this $14-16.oo device, new in-the-box, I can't complain. I can only say I hate this product even though it works. Its invisible while using it, it's inexpensive, and it bugs the be-g-sis out of me.
Summary: It works, but barely. 30 ft away from the router, it had only one bar, constantly loosing connection and the speed was teaspoon per hour most of the time. It worked slightly better when the router was 20 ft away, so it seems that 30 ft is max it can (Can it?) get.
Cons: Died in a year like a day before the warranty went out but I did not get to it in time. Cd that came with it was useless but thats common. Since I bought it I have seen the same or better quality product way cheaper, less then half the price, it was 50$ when I got it.
Summary: After recently upgrading to a wireless N network router, I bought this product for under $10 in hopes of going from wireless G to N on one computer in my home network. Unfortunately, I now realize why this product can be had for such a bargain. There are two main faults with this product: 1.
Summary: Old stock from Newegg? This came with firmware 1.50 (rev B Adapter) but Dlink says that's no good for Win 7 64. Had to go to Dlink and download 1.60 (In Dlink speak, the driver is the same as the firmware, which is different from any other devices I own).
Pros: Works on Win XP Pro 32 bit. Nice little extension holder for the device.
Cons: Bought this specifically because it was on Windows 7 64 approved hardware list. Went round and round with Dlink support. They were very patient and I did everything they asked to get it working but it just won't work. They finally asked me to install it in another computer. I had an XP Pro 32 bit...
Summary: I had bought one of these prior to this purchase and used it on a windows pc, it worked fine. The box says clearly in the requirements section that the unit will work on Windows or Macintosh OS's. Based on this, I bought another two to use on two Mac laptops.
Pros: Works on pc's.
Cons: Does not work on Macs. Elusive tech support.
Summary: I've had one of these for almost 2 years (did not buy it from newegg) and it was problems from the get-go. Vista users don't wast your time unless you like restarting your computer over and over and over. Good for a laptop while traveling but nothing long term.
Pros: Semi easy setup.. Super easy hard install.. decent reception when it works
Cons: touchy driver installation (took about 4 tries on vista. Fine on win 7). it interferes with my speakers causing a hum, it likes to turn off on it's own, usb port constantly stops recognizing device. constantly have to unplug and plug it back in while holding breath that it will stay on for more t...
Summary: Don't even bother installing driver from d-link. Download from Ralink, part #RT2870. As always newegg rocks, good price and fast shipping.
Pros: Excellent range and speed.
Cons: #1 D-Link drivers are worthless. Had poor range and signal even 10 feet from my router. Showed only 50% signal. It would automaticly select the weaker signal with no way to manualy connect to different access point. After doing some detective work, I found out that its made by Ralink. Downloaded ...
