Features

Upgrade to Wireless AC Performance Today's households are connecting more devices than ever before - with more and more iPhones, Androids, tablets, and laptops laying around in any given home, it's important that each device gets the speed and coverage it deserves.

By upgrading your laptop and desktop computers to Wireless AC, you can immediately enjoy the benefits of faster wireless speeds and better connectivity. Delivering Wi-Fi dual band speeds to your laptop or desktop computer, the DWA-171 is the perfect solution for those looking to enjoy smooth HD video streaming, fast file transfers and lag-free video chatting - all with less wireless interference for maximum performance.


Backward Compatible

While the Wireless AC Dual Band USB Adapter delivers blazing fast AC speed to your laptop or desktop computer, it's also backward compatible with older Wi-Fi routers and devices - no updates or adapters necessary.


Maximize your AC Performance

While your new Wireless AC adapter delivers the latest and the greatest in wireless performance to your laptop and desktop computers, you can further optimize your home network's performance by upgrading your current router to one of D-Link's Wireless AC Cloud routers. By adding an Wi-Fi AC router to your home network (DIR-810L, DIR-820L), you can avoid speed bottle-necks and maximize your wireless AC performance.

Does what it says

My PC had no WiFi and I needed to use it far away from the router, this product replaced the 15 metre ethernet cable I had been using previously. I use it for video calls, simple games, streaming, downloads, and Web browsing and haven't bothered plugging back into ethernet as there's no difference in terms of speed. PB tech made it easy to use Laybuy I store, too.

Not as stable as my 11n old one.

Required a few off\on (disable\enable) during the week to keep on working.
Never had it with my old one for years.

More expensive than some but excellent speed

Purchased during Covid 19 Lockdown to use a desktop PC lacking a wifi adapter on the kitchen table.

Works like a charm and resulted in the fastest wifi speeds I've seen in our home. Tested on an HP G3 laptop and it consistently gives faster Wifi than the built in wifi adapter.

No issues setting up and no lost connections.

Does the job

Does the job without any fuss. Mac users will have to download the driver from D-Link: hard if you don't have Internet...

Works great

Bought this for my laptop as suspected the built in wireless adaptor was not working properly (internet connection was poor). But once I installed this d-link usb wifi adapter my connection to the internet is perfect. Highly recommend this product, great price too.
