  • Worthless product
    Reviewed by N/A - January 12, 2021

    Bought this product few months ago. Had problems from very first beginning. On Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz signal is decent, but I bought it for 5Ghz for increased speed. On 5GHz, dropping connection every two minutes and once you change the position of your laptop or you cover the adapter with any object (even with your hand) is losing signal. All my other connected items are doing fine on 5Ghz (because they have a proper antenna). I have bought even a Wi-Fi range extender and I can confirm that the issue is the adapter. Only time that works fine is if you are close to your router and in direct sight if possible. D-Link customer support was worthless. I've tried all USB ports (2.0 and 3.0).

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Not very good
    Reviewed by DRCVER - January 22, 2020

    I've had one for about 1 1/2 months now and I'm already experiencing problems. First off it wasn't detecting my 5ghz wifi so I had to actually uninstall all the drivers that were on the disc and download them from the internet. then my 5ghz wifi worked for about 3 weeks and now I cant find it again. Problem 2, the internet cuts out a lot. it also gets very slow at times only on my computer using this adapter. Lastly, I've noticed it gets quite warm which i don't think its supposed to do

  • Annoying Install
    Reviewed by Cleveland - November 7, 2019

    Once you get it set up it works fine. It comes with a disc so you can install the software, but if your computer doesn't have a disc drive it tells you to go to their website and download the software. This would be easy if you had internet, but if you're buying this product it's probably because you don't have internet. I had to download the software on a friends computer, put it on a USB, and move it to my computer.

  • Faster than my built-in wireless
    Reviewed by James - March 17, 2020

    I have an older second laptop for watching movies. The built-in is wireless N and only 2.4GHz. This was a simple upgrade cost effective upgrade. Now on the 5GHz band I get way less cut out and better performance.

  • Small and easy to install
    Reviewed by John L - January 8, 2021

    The built-in Wi-Fi on my laptop was flaking out and bought this because it's affordable and small form factor and don't want to replace my laptop yet. The install was easy and performs well.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
