Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11g and 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 Wireless G product from D-Link. Maximum throughput based on D-Link's 802.11n devices.

Not Good
Reviewed by mr bell. Review Posted 30/07/2007

Do not waste your money.
This unit caused many problems, unlike my Belkin 54 Mbps unit.
If you like me use a BT Homehub, this only transmits a maximum 54 Mbps WiFi.
So the claimed 300 Mbps is not needed, that’s if it ever works.
Better still use a patch cable from the router to the PC and get a true 100 Mbps.
Or use a Belkin 54/125 Mbps WiFi unit, which works very well.
Have read that the Belkin 300 Mbps unit, is also unstable, unless of course you know better.
Hope this helps,

Easy to setup and works fine
Reviewed by Anonymous Review Posted 17/11/2007

Very easy to setup and works fine.
I have not had any problems with it whatsoever. Comes with a USB extension cable too, which was a nice surprise.
Installed drivers from CD, plugged into USB, entered wireless network details and it worked! Up and running in just a few minutes. I am using with D-link N Router so this might have helped. Stable signal strength about 60% with no dropouts.
Works fine for me!
