  • Summary: transmission limit seems to be about 40 feet in our house (without obstructions)! To get 40 feet, we have to keep our desks cleared. We found D-link better than Cisco or Belkin.

  • 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.

Very satisfied

  • Summary: The signal strength, however, is not any better than Super G card that the 160 replaced even when normalizing on windows wireless as the source of truth. Granted, I live in an RF "blackhole", however i thought the signal would be perfect as the distance is only 15 feet (through 1 floor at a high angle which makes it the same as 40'.
  • 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: 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.

Адаптер D-link DWA-160

  • 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.
