WHAT THIS PRODUCT DOES Connect your desktop or notebook computer to a wireless network and access a high-speed Internet connection, transfer files, and stream media from greater distances around your home.
WHY WIRELESS N IS BETTER This Wireless N Adapter uses draft 802.11n technology to maximize the speed and range of your wireless signal to significantly outperform 802.11g MIMO devices**. The Wireless N Adapter makes use of your home's environment by bouncing multiple wireless signals off of walls and ceilings to work around obstructions and help eliminate dead spots.
* Using a USB 1.1 port will affect device performance. ** Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11g and draft 802.11n specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless range and speed rates are D-Link RELATIVE performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates of a standard 802.11g MIMO product from D-Link.

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.
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.
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.
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. :)
