D-Link Wireless N products use Intelligent Antenna technology to transmit multiple streams of data which enable you to receive wireless signals in the farthest corners of your home.

Experience: 8 Months
- Good reception for a USB adapter
- Comes with useful USB extension cable
- Software can not install drivers unless the adapter is present at the time of installation.
I have been using this adapter successfully on Ubuntu 8.04 w/NDisWrapper (802.11b/g only) and on Windows Vista 64bit Enterprise (802.11n).

The router I am connecting to is an Asus WL500W running DD-WRT in 802.11 n/b/g mixed mode and WPA2-PSK.

Although there are several drywalls between the computer and the router I always get >100Mbps which can be considered very reasonable. The connection is stable and reliable.

Experience: 2 Years
Easy Setup. Compatible with Windows XP or newer. Very stable. Range is better then any on board WiFi adapters I have used.
The size of the adapter is big by today's standards.

I have use this for more then two years now and I have never used a better wireless adapter; its still going strong. No fighting with divers when moving it to new machines. Great great adapter. If I had to criticize I would say the adapter is a little on the large side. I use it for a desktop computer so size doesn't matter that much to me. If using a laptop this may cause some encumbrance issues.

Not really any, all it really does is give me internet for 3 minutes at a time, and not even at a fast speed.
Disconnects every 10 seconds, and it seems like it has a mind of its own.
*should be 1 star
This d-link thing is garbage.

Experience: 6 Months
When it's connected, it works just fine.
It's always disconnecting.
This wireless adapter is a piece of garbage. It constantly disconnects, at least a dozen times a day. I RMA'd the first one I got, and the second one does this as well, despite me trying the adapter out on two different computers, on both Vista and 7.

Easily the worst computer part I've ever purchased. Avoid it.

Experience: 30 Days
Its been pretty reliable, Hasn't messed up yet.
Ive got D link router haven't had anything bad to say about it. I thats why I decided to buy this adapter. Its good product.

This product has NO strengths.
constantly disconnects
weak connection
Do not buy this, it is terrible. A huge waste of money. I use it simply as a paper weight. It is constantly disconnecting. It spends more time reconnecting than it does connected. When it connects (for 1-3 minutes) it has a terrible speed even though I am close to my router! AVOID THIS PRODUCT.

Experience: 3 Months
ok when it works
Hangs alot

Def not the best wireless adapter if you can just stick with wired. Using mine with a desktop.........

Reliable, flexible, secure
Runs extremely hot
This is a sweet usb network adapter that gets a little bit hot for my liking. Stick it in a cool place like behind a computer fan and it'll be fine.

This adapter wipes my old 2wire one to pieces.

Great signal within the house. Small and easy to share between different computers. Come's with usb extention "plug" that is weighted for easy install for computers with no front USB connectivity
Get's a bit warm.
Purchased and set up this unit with 2 different computers in a residence during the holidays. Software worked just fine on a windowx xp based computer and a vista 32 bit based computer. One computer was located in a room adjacent to the router (DIR-655) and the other on the bottom floor across the house. With the router in a central location I was able to get good signal (3 bars at least) in nearly every area of the residence with the adapter connected to a laptop. I was very impressed with this adapters abilities and ease of connectivity. The fact you can use it with more than one computer and it has very good range (with wireless N as never tested with G) make it great. :)

It is usable. Barely.
- Buggy drivers / installer
- Causes intermittent hanging of XP
- Worst reception of any wireless adapter I've used.
Actual Star Rating: 1*

In Vista 32bit, the driver installation from included CD hung and refused to install. Installing driver directly via HW manager seemed to work, but I was unable to connect to a WPA2 WRT54G router. Gave up. Managed to get it working on an XP box with the same router.

The reception is truly awful. Eg: I can see three wireless networks using this router, including my own (which is in the next room). My router is listed as "low" signal strength. Using a six year old Linksys WUSB11 adapter on the same computer, I can see 12 networks, five of which are listed as "Excellent" signal strength.

Additionally, whenever the DWA-130 is plugged into the machine, it experiences random stuttering lock-ups that last 2-3 seconds.

Utter junk.

*I purchased this elsewhere, therefore I can't put the order number required to rate lower.
