D-Link Wireless-N Nano USB Adapter DWA-131

 
3.4
Verdict: If you've got a laptop with 802.11g, the most cost effective way to upgrade to 802.11n is to add a USB dongle. It's awkward, but it remains the only way to get greater speeds on an older machine.

I used this product for 1 week and it started ...

 
1.0
Verdict: I used this product for 1 week and it started to drop the signal half way through my job, I had to install the old links. I would stay away from refurbished products from now on I'll pay a couple dollars extra and get something that works, I threw the box away and now I lost my money.

Good buy but requires driver download

 
2.0
Verdict: It does the job but it requires a driver to work and there was a bit of a problem when I didn't have a dongle to connect to the internet to download the driver in the first place.

4.0
Verdict: This product is very good & can be connected in a windows 8.1 system with a few clicks.but the specification of this product is not elaborately described with maximum connectivity range. this is a very small product & fits very well in the desktop or laptop. it is light weight also.

4.5
Verdict: An incredibly smooth product that worked better than what I had expected. Good signal strength and fast connection to the router. Protrudes approximately 1cm from the computer, a good product developed by D-Link. En otroligt smidig produkt som fungerade bättre än vad jag hade förväntat mig.

Works great

 
5.0
Verdict: I bought an Ultra wireless adapter less than a year ago for my wife and the first time she put her laptop in the traveling case, she popped the cover off it. This D-Link is considerably more durable than the Ultra even though it's just a little taller. I love D-Link... they build excellent products.

Great piece of hardware

Verdict: All I can say is this is great!! Very easy and quick to install and gained access to the Internet straightaway. I can now say goodbye to Vodafone whose broadband signal is practically non-existent.

Poor choice

 
5.0
Verdict: I upgraded my home network and found my old adapter was just that old. Though, everything was working fine. The D-Link software uninstalled the old adapter and installed the new software. I rebooted and I got error messages that my computer could not find files.

Pros: Easy to set up, even easier to use, small, good connection and stays connected
Cons: can 'drop' sometime but not that often
Verdict: If, like me, you have a computer somewhere that has not got a built in wireless adapter , meaning that you have always had to have it connected to the internet via the old fashioned Ethernet cable, then you'll know how annoying it is when you want to move the computer to a different room, realising...

Good Value Fair Performance

 
3.0
Verdict: Reasonable performance from a small unit. On a Netgear DGN2200v2 single band modem router (2.4GHz only) this device receives data at (up to) 300Mbps but transmits at (up to) 150Mbps; fine for browsing and email reading, but if you want (up to) 300Mbps Rx and Tx for media sharing I suggest you go for...

Top Speed is 65 Mbps

 
1.0
Pros: It works..
Cons: It works slowly..
Verdict: I have a D-Link 300 N wireless router. Used with the built in wireless adapter in my Dell laptop, the transfer rate is 130 Mbps. Nowhere near the advertised 300 but slightly better than a 100 base T network cable.

Verdict: This is a great little wireless unit and I love the super small size, but the range is a bit limited. It's still a good product and worth the price. I am going to order another very soon.

Pros: Small, you plug it and forget about it
Cons: Small (antenna) which means limited range but that was to be expected
Verdict: I bought this because it was cheap and small. I didn't want to have to open the case to had wireless. So far so good, it worked right out of the box with Ubuntu 10.10 which was great. It works well in the house but the computer and router are close by.

After reboot Dlink utility doesn't load

 
2.0
Pros: The size is great
Cons: They seem to loose the connection easily
Verdict: I bought 3 of these hoping to prevent using wires. These adapters seem to work well on newer PC's. On a older Dell Dimension pc, the dlink software would never recognize the adapter. Windows XP would recognize the adapter fine but it would never connect to the router.

Good little Wifi adapter.

 
5.0
Verdict: I bought this for my Raspberrypi and was very annoyed it did not work with it properly, turns out it was a driver that needed to be rewritten and when it was updated it worked perfect.
