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

Whitney Blackburn, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • 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. I only give it a 4/5, because while it is cheap and does stay connected. The signal weakens down significantly when my family uses our bandwidth sometimes.

Works fine for my general use

KRH "Karl", Amazon

  • 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. For my general use, including listening to web music, it works fine.

Works with windows 7

grandmadeedee, Amazon
7 August 2010
  • 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. Not sure if the problem is the adapter, the router (also D-link), or just my home construction. I have a similar problem with cell phone coverage in my home, so I suspect it is the home.

  • Summary: Easy to set up and use.It didn't have a dramatic effect on the performance of my laptop, but then I don't have the problems I used to have either. It didn't cost much, and I would recommend buying one.

Decent range for USB and Wireless N, sturdy construction, works with Windows 7 64 bit

Make IT happen, Amazon
27 September 2009
  • Summary: I like USB portability and compatibility, but as far as wireless goes, I have seen some issues with many products in the past. I wasn't sure what to expect from this but needed a portable N card for my network and am pleasantly surprised, but was still hoping that USB/N wireless technology had come a little further. SPEED: Good. Delivers consistent 216-270Mbps even at the furthest point from the router I can find in my house.(using Dlink DIR 655 router in N only mode).

Solid Adapter

Stanley Fu, Amazon
24 March 2009
  • Summary: I just received this today after having numerous issues with my old Netgear Wireless-G USB adapter randomly losing it's connection. Since I had previously purchased a DLink DIR-625 router that's been rock solid for 4 months, I figured i'd buy the proper adapter to go with it for wireless N speeds. Installation was straight forward, and I found DLink's connection app far more intuitive and simple then Netgear's, although I prefer the built in Windows manager.

works well, but not much different from g for most applications

Shammah98, Amazon
19 March 2009
  • Summary: Range has been about the same as my old usb linksys g adapter, and just as stable. no noticeable diff in speed. only area it seems to be better is in streaming HD video. since thats why i got it, Im happy and it was worth the purchase. that being said, the router (DIR 655), is awesome and way more stable than my old netgear rangemax. love it!
