Sore

No, I do not recommend this product.
I was sorely dissapointed with DWA-140, though I am not an IT specialist, I am not completely illerate on computers. I figured since I am using the D-Link DIR-655, the DWA-140 would be a win-win situation to network two computers. Not so. And, this just seems to fit into the picture of wireless products that are giving me a headache, like my printer (wireless), that had to be replaced by Dell, then my hardrive, then the optical drive. Guess what! My printer is still giving me problems.
In the years I have used Dell products, this is the first time I have had such a complex, growing problem.

Works Great on Win7 Ultimate x64

PostedFebruary 3, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
I bought the Rangebooster after being disappointed with the Linksys PCI wireless card (which worked sporadically at best on Win7 x64 even with chip maker drivers). I had read many articles about wireless driver issues with Win7 x64 so I was initially skeptical. However, after receiving this product I was on-line within minutes downloading at exceptional speed. As a test I copied over large files (30+ minutes) from another PC and had no drops whatsoever. The install was straight forward and the base holder of the device is solid with enough cable length to position out of sight. Signal strength is excellent but at home I don't really push the transmit range. Using about 2 1/2 weeks with no problems at all.
