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.
Summary: I bought two of these together with a D-Link DIR-825 Extreme-N Dual-Band Gigabit Router. I decided to upgrade my old Wireless G network to the updated N. The G was working good, but every now and again it would become congested and had to reboot the router. This was the reason for the upgrade!
Summary: Other's have had issues with this newer revision not working on the WD Live TV Hub, but it works for me (with the latest firmware). WD has probably updated their firmware to support it. I don't get anywhere near a 300Mbps connection but I have no trouble streaming HD media, so no real loss I guess.

Summary: I did not want to install the D-Link software that came with the wireless adapter as I knew Windows 7 would install the drivers for me. Wrong. Windows 7 did install the drivers once I plugged the adapter but I could not connect to my wireless networks (I have 2, one N and one G with the D-Link 825...
