Excerpt: It has been more than 6 months since purchasing the D-link DWA-160 usb adapter. The product worked fine all this time. So I never gave it a second thought that it would stop working. I came back home from the store to find my internet connection disconnected. At first I thought it was my router but after checking, the problem turn out to be the D-Link Adapter. It was very hot to the touch and it had completely stop working.
Summary: 5 bars of signal strength, bouncing between 216-243Mbps at the moment at 5Ghz. Using it with a D-Link DIR-825 dual N-band router. Using the extension/cradle sitting up high on the desk about 6 ft away from the router on the other side of a wall. Never having owned a USB network adapter before (though I've used them) and having seen & heard about low signal due to the lack of a large external antenna in USB adapters, I wasn't quite sure what to expect.
Pros: Can connect at 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz (assuming the router supports both), good speeds, doesn't get too hot (just slightly warm), install was pretty hassle-free, drivers available for both 32/64 bit versions of XP/Vista.
Cons: Was stuck at 162Mbps with drivers from CD (newest drivers from website brought this up). A little on the pricey side.
Summary: I guess I am amazed and thankful that wireless works as well as it does. I am continual repeat dlink customer and this product keeps me in that place.
Pros: Works. I am using it on 5ghz (with a DIR 825 Router). Performance is high. Like the dlink super g bus card it replaced, it stays connected, I never hear about connectivity problems from my family using the computer connected to it.
Cons: The dlink connection wizard shows a lower graph bar signal strength then the windows built in wireless. This is odd because the actual strength is consisitent with what windows shows and the throughput is exceptional, typically 240+mpbs.
Summary: Works prima without fuss, quick and easy installation. 'm Very happy with everything except the price. Fungerar prima utan krångel, snabb och enkel installation. Är jättenöjd med allt förutom priset.
Summary: Have just been testing a D-Link DWA-160 rev. B2 adapter briefly. The maxed no problem broadband connection (37 Mbit / s - 10 Mbit / s), when it inserted a USB hub connected to a desktop computer, which is 5 - 10 m from the combined ADSL modem / router from Broadband Company (Technicolor TG789vn v3) . Installation took a few minutes, and went completely painless.
Summary: Har just testat en D-Link DWA-160 rev. B2 adapter som hastigast. Den maxade utan problem bredbandsuppkopplingen (37 MBit/s - 10 MBit/s), när den satt i en USB hubb ansluten till en stationär dator, som står 5 - 10 m från det kombinerade ADSL modemet / routern från Bredbandsbolaget (Technicolor TG789vn v3). Installationen tog några minuter, och gick helt smärtfritt.
Conclusion: Недостатки: сигнал ловит плохо, хуже телефона. но мне это не сильно важно, т.к. роутер с компом стоят в одной комнате. Достоинства: удобная штука. у меня кабель до стационарного компа не дотягивается, решил проблему приобретением простейшего дир-300 и этого свистка. теперь все нормально.
