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: 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: I bought a D-Link Extreme N Gigabit router along with this adapter which works great. I bought this adapter so I could get the "N" speeds on my laptop which is downstairs from the router. This adapter was considerably faster than my old built-in "G" but had a big problem with staying connected.
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: 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.
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: Um mienen Media PC in der neuen Wohnung ins Netz zu bringen, war ein Wlan Stick von Nöten. Also dieses Gerät (meins übrigens mit USB-Cradle versehen) abgestöpselt und siehe da: 2 Balken Empfang. Die FritzBox steht im Flur, der Media PC 5 Meter und eine Wand dazwischen, die es zu überbrücken galt.
Summary: was soll man erwarten? Mir scheint, die Hersteller schreiben nur noch zu Marketingzwecken "Bis zu 300Mbit" drauf. Mittlerweile der 6. Stick im Einsatz, kommt lediglich im idle-Modus an die 300Mbit. Geringe Last, schon gehts abwärts. Durchschnittlich beim Kopieren großer Dateien ca.
