Fast on 5GHz band for both 802.11n and 802.11ac
My DWA-182 C1 came with the cradle
Price is reasonable
The latest D-Link driver package 3.03 b04 crashes (BSOD) Win 7
Upgraded my home wireless to 802.11ac, with Asus RT-AC87R router, and D-Link DWA-182 C1 usb clients on two separate Win 7 SP1 (with all of the latest updates as of 15-09-26) machines. Both Win 7 machines worked without any problems with the router set for 802.11n (40MHz ch bandwidth), but would both crash with BSOD when the router was switched over to 802.11ac (80Mhz c bandwidth). Doesn't seem No other driver version is available on the D-Link site.

The DWA-182 C1 and Asus USB-AC56 both use the Realtek RTL8812AU chip, so thought I would try the latest driver (1026.6.1217.2013) available for the Asus in the USB-AC56 Utility v2.0.9.8 package. Good news: the DWA-182 C1 now works like a charm on 802.11ac - stable with a constant 867 Mbps connect speed on the closest machine and 780 Mbps on the machine further away, and no more crashes. Note that I could not find the Realtek drivers separately anywhere on the Internet.

Since I haven't seen any postings of other users running into this problem, I'm scratching my head about what is so special about my setup. Regardless, my experience is good hardware/bad software, so only four stars.

- Excellent value for the price
- Excellent range, no connectivity issues (even on cloudy days, but a lot of this may have to do with my ASUS router.)
- Excellent speed, allows me to run Steam streaming from my desktop to my laptop over a 5GHz connection without any lag.
- Easy to install (I mean, it's a USB stick, doesn't get much simpler than that.)
- "Cradle" extension cable is almost essential since the stick itself is somewhat bulky.
- Cradle mount doesn't have a great base and can easily be knocked over (this won't affect the performance AFAIK, but it drives my OCD crazy.)
- Extension cable is only a meter or so long, it would be nicer if it were a little longer.
- Bundled "connection manager" software doesn't really add any value, but it takes a little work to install the driver without it.
this was the cheapest USB 3.0 wifi stick that allowed 802.11ac streaming that I could find, and I am so far very happy with the purchase.

Experience: 1 Days
