Great 802.11n Adapter @ 150MB/s (Isn't 300MB/s)

PostedFebruary 15, 2011
Yes, I would recommend this product
I upgraded my router to a D-Link DIR-615 to take advantage of 802.11n. These adapters work very well. I purchased 2 of them and the price was not too bad for Dell.
You should visit the D-Link Support site and download the newest driver and software. I do reccommend you use the software utility because it will show you the channel number for any other routers in the area. You can change your channel to one that is not being used to decrease wireless interfearence. If you right click your wireless bar icon in the toolbar and select status, you can make sure your connected at 150MB/s. If you are not, you will need to consult your router manual or manufacturer support website to find out how to change your router settings to take full advantage of 150 MB/s connection speeds. Use the usb extension to place the adapter in an area where you may get better reception too.
Pros:multiple pc network, shared multimedia network, pc gaming

Best Bang For Your Buck!

PostedSeptember 23, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
I'm the dummy that thought I wouldn't ever need a wireless card in our new rig so here I am buying an wireless adapter... I just set the DWA-130 up last night - I was SHOCKED at how easy the installation was along with the capabilities this adapter has! PERFECT for our family of 5 and the speed is CRAZY fast - way exceeded my expectations. Great little USB adapter and highly recommended for anyone looking for basic (although I am guessing it will exceed your expectations also) wireless! The cradle is an added bonus!
Pros:streaming video, whole house wireless

Excellent Router for a good price

Yes, I would recommend this product
My dad hooked my children's computer the home network using this router. It was easy to install and has a nice strong signal. The price is not expensive for a wireless N router.
Pros:video streaming and downloading
