Great price! Connection is slow at times, but it doesn't over heat and shut off!

Whitney, Amazon

  • Summary: My old adapter had a good signal, but it would over heat and shut off, thus turning off my internet connection. Never buy an adapter or any product with out first looking at reviews from multiple sources on it! So, I came across the D-link when searching for a replacement.

Works fine for my general use

KRH "Karl", Amazon
9 December 2013
  • Summary: Had some difficulty setting up the unit. In fact, I did it several times before it was operational. Now it seems to be working fine. Initial connection to my PC is a bit slow, but I don't know if that is a PC problem or the adapter. Have no problem with it dropping out or losing connection.

It works for me!

Larry Weinberg, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: I've always wanted to be able to use my desktop anywhere in my house without hooking it up to a stiff coaxial cable. When a neighbor told me to get this kind of product, I read some info about it online and since I already had a D-Link DIR-615 wireless N router, I decided to get a D-Link adapter as...

D-Link DWA 140 Works with WDTV Live Plus

M. Sanchez, Amazon
12 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought the D-Link DWA 140 to eliminate ethernet cabling running through the house. Set up was easy and I did NOT install the included D-Link set up CD. I simply plugged the DWA 140 to the WDTV Live Plus wifi slot and added it to my existing network.

Works with windows 7

grandmadeedee, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this adapter because the first one recommended by D-link personnel didn't work with windows 7 - go figure!! Second person I talked to recommended the DWA-140 and it is working although I am not getting the signal strength I thought I would get.

Newest revision and Ubuntu

James V., Newegg
26 July 2010
  • Summary: This effort can be found on various Ubuntu forum posts. Basically, you will need to blacklist the 2800usb drivers in blacklist.conf file, get the source for the driver and edit in the hex code for this revision into the driver .h file, install as a kernel mod file.
  • Pros: Works out of the box with Windows XP. I received revision B2.
  • Cons: The base revision and revision B1 work with Ubuntu out of the box. For revision B2, which was shipped, it will work in Windows, but Ubuntu needs some effort to get it to work. This is not the fault of the product, it is just a newer revision. In time, the Ubuntu driver will have this change.

Works well, I expected better

Brian S., Newegg
23 July 2010
  • Summary: This is well worth the price, and being USB, it's very portable. The DWA-140 is one of the better USB 802.11n adapters out there.
  • Pros: Was recognized immediately in Windows 7 x64, and picked up the signal from my DIR-655 immediately. Connection speed is 130mbps, and real world transfer speeds over my network are about 2.5x faster (About 7mb/s) than with my old internal 802.11g card. It also works in Mac OS X 10.6 (Hackintosh) us...
  • Cons: Signal strength is considerably weaker than what my 802.11g card got; I'm now getting 70-90% while the old card was always 98-100%. This is about 40 feet from the router and there's only one thin wall in the middle. However, I haven't noticed any dips in connection speed at all, so I'm not worrie...

basically good

Anonymous, Newegg
26 June 2010
  • Pros: Better signal than my older one, looks pretty good, works fine in windows. I'm far away from my router (about 2 1/2 floors down and 20 feet across) and still getting 3 bars.
  • Cons: Doesn't work immediately in linux, took me a while to figure out what to do to make it work. A command of advice- "sudo gedit blacklist.conf" and add "blacklist rt2800usb" to the bottom of the file. I think you also need ndiswrapper etc though.
