Low Marks for High Price.

K. Guenther, Amazon

  • Summary: After buying one adapter that wasn't compatible with Windows 8.1, I looked around and found this. With Prime, it felt like a steal for $10 when the usual price was $80. I'm not entirely sure if mine was defective, or if this product is generally bad. 3 stars for the benefit of the doubt. It arrived, and I installed the drivers, and booted it up. This was where the problems started.

Works okay. Did not increase performance at all, though.

Jerry Allen "Computer Guru", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought it and a wireless N router to give me better coverage in my modest home. It was an awkward size and didn't increase performance even a little bit. Somewhat disappointed but it does work. Spend the extra and get one of the smaller non-draft N USB adapters. At least they won't stick out so much.

D-Link DWA-140 Wireless USB Adapter

M. Perez, Amazon
27 September 2013
  • Summary: The D-Link DWA-140 works OK but I was expecting better results. The signal strength is acceptable but considering that I'm paring it with a D-Link N+300 router, I was expecting better results. the DWA-140 mounting bracket is fixed and does not allow me to change the orientation to try and get a stronger signal. Since it's mounted on my computer console, I have to deal with a fixed object. Other than this I have not had any problems with wireless USB adapter.

Does Good

Terry Spears, Amazon
28 July 2012
  • Summary: I was able to use my clunky old desktop wireless with this device. It does seem to have a little lag but not annoyingly so. It allowed me to put my computer anywhere I wanted instead of being tethered to a router.

It helps, but doesn't solve the problem

Pam, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The adapter does its job, but still getting low connectivity. I thought perhaps this would be the solution to getting a range extender. B & H is great! [...].
  • Pros: Lightweight, Simple

  • Summary: Can't give a 5 star review cause I actually don't have it working yet. It connects briefly then within a second or two disconnects. I'm thinking that it may be my security on my router, or some random setting, but for now, I'm undecided. I'm recomending it cause d-link are generally excellent products.

Compare prices before buying

Inushi, Amazon
30 May 2009
  • Summary: At the time that I'm writing this review, the D-Link DWA-140 adaptor is available from multiple vendors. Amazon is selling it for $49, so you might want to buy that one instead of buying it from this reseller.

Sucks for bittorrent, decent otherwise

Trav Reviews, Amazon
12 April 2009
  • Summary: I've had this for a couple weeks now and if you overload this little device with bittorrent traffic, it will cause the device to lose connectivity. You will have to go to your control panel and disable / re-enable it in order to reconnect. The device's software it comes with is useless. It's fine for most internet activity but if you're a hardcore bandwidth user seek 802.11n connectivity elsewhere.
