Low Marks for High Price.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 October 2014
  • 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.

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.

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.

Just so-so

Erik Stein, Amazon
10 April 2013
  • Summary: I could not connect to a newer DLINK rounter (DAP-2553) using Windows XP (32-bit) with windows built-in wireless configuration software. I had to install DLINK's software (not just the driver) in order to connect.

Does Good

Terry Spears "Terry49", 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.

not durable enough

Dennis B., Newegg
3 April 2012
  • Summary: Compared with other products that have equal technology capability this device was too expensive. I am a committed D-Link user but this falls short of my expectation...
  • Pros: Great bandwidth and response time
  • Cons: Not built tough enough to hold up when being utilized with laptop PC. Sticks out to far and didn't have flexability to tilt or bend at point of insertion to USB.

Compare prices before buying

Inushi, Amazon
7 April 2011
  • 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. Compare the price on: D-Link DWA-140 RangeBooster Draft 802.11n Wireless USB Adapter

It helps, but doesn't solve the problem

Pam, B&H Photo
2 March 2011
  • 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! [...]. For any future needs, I would not hesitate using them again
  • Pros: Lightweight, Simple

"RangeBooster" is a lie, just average, don't pay extra.

Oleg Z., Newegg
20 August 2010
  • Summary: All tried so far so called "dual bend" and "RangeBooster" adapters perform worse than simple N or even G adapters. So don't spend extra money on this advertised c... More expensive ones have lower range and average speed in real public wireless networks.
  • Pros: Works - sends and receives signals. D-Link reputation. Other brands even worse.
  • Cons: Lower range than my old D-Link DWA-125 (N, 150 Mbs) for less than 30 bucks, so "RangeBooster" is a fraudulent promo. - 2 eggs. Real tested max web speed was about the same ~ 65 Mbs/sec download. So no real speed improvement.
