Great cheap USB stick for AC speeds

26 October 2018
Bought this for a business client and it's been great.

Only downside is the driver installation. Get's picked up as a USB drive which has the driver install files. After installing the wireless adapter is available.

Cheap easy solution to get dual band AC on a desktop computer.

WIFI Now Close to Fibre Speed!

27 August 2018
Thanks to using the D-Link DWA-171 Dual Band AC600 Mini USB Wireless Adapter along with a recently acquired dual band router, my WIFI connection speeds are now extremely close to my rated 100/20 fibre plan! Prior to purchasing this wireless adapter I was only knocking on a download speed of 40Mbps. Now I'm achieving up to 98Mbps and consistently for just over three weeks since purchasing! Yes, I am rapped! Thank you.This has been a great deal with very prompt delivery.

I needed a reasonably quick option to get my internet back up and running while the phone connection was down. These worked a treat for all my 8 workstations in my office.

Nice tiny WiFi adapter. Very easy to install (use CD with Windows 10). It works well in reasonable distance and the price is not bad.
