D-Link DWA-125 Usb Adapter Reviews

1.Hardware is easy to install. It is much simpler than opening the CPU to install a wireless card. Network setup is very easy (I have a mixed network of Vista, Windows XP and Windows 7, and a D-Link N router). ———-by Keydet

2.I’ve had my Dlink USB N adapter for about 1.5 years with two different desktops located respectively about 40 feet and 60 feet from my Dlink N wireless router. I’ve compared the signal strength on my desktops with Wi-Fi cards in several laptops, and this external USB adapter has the same connectivity. Initially I plugged the adapter directly into the USB port, but it seems to heavy and large (it can cover access to a neighboring USB port, and after accidentally knocking it roughly out twice, I decided to use the dock. Good move! Not only is it safe and frees up access to the neighboring USB port, but I can place the dock about 2 feet higher than the tower on the floor and get slight better network/Internet connection. ——–by Samuel S. Lewis

3.First, I will say that it is very easy to install. Insert disc and follow the simple directions. Let me say that my Verizon router is downstairs on one side of the house and my d-link adapter is on my desktop (w/vista) upstairs on the other side of house so there are interfering walls and a floor. During the installation, it showed a 61% signal strength (3 out of 4 bars on d-link connection manager) which I thought it would cause a slowdown problem. Nope! Not at all. It is no problem at all as my computer feels as if it was connected with a wire. Web pages come on very quickly and I stream videos/movies with no buffer. It stays around 50-60% signal strength (3 out of 4 bars) and that is good enough for me. Wow! I am very pleased with this adapter’s performance. ———- by BAH

User Reviews

Make IT happen said:

 I like USB portability and compatibility, but as far as wireless goes, I have seen some issues with many products in the past. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this but needed a portable N card for my network and am pleasantly surprised, but was still hoping that USB/N wireless technology had come a little further.

SPEED: Good. Delivers consistent 216-270Mbps even at the furthest point from the router I can find in my house.(using Dlink DIR 655 router in N only mode).

RELIABILITY/RANGE: Good, but had hoped for better. No drops so far, but the range is less than my other wireless cards, and most notably, my cheap Belkin USB adapter. This is to be expected from any wireless N product though, and given the consistently awesome speed and absence of dropped signalls, I wouldn’t even notice if I wasn’t monitoring the range counters during testing and comparisons to my other devices.

DURABILITY: Constructed well. Made of plastics like most of the new products, but very solid construction. Really impressive is the extension cradle which has about a 4′ extension cable and could literally be used as a paper weight in a hurricane. My Belkin by comparison seems like it would blow across the room with a sneeze. Heat is always a concern with many new products, but not with this. It maintains a steady operating temperature and has small vents to release internal heat.

COMPATIBILITY: Of note, I have read many reviews of products causing blue screens and crashes, especially for VISTA 64 bit computers. I am using this on Windows 7 64 bit and have no issues except that the Wireless Connection Manager software doesn’t run, which is probably a blessing as most 3rd party wireless managment software causes more issues than good and I always revert back to the Windows wireless management anyway. I am not a MAC user, but it came with MAC utilities for what that is worth and I don’t believe I came across any bad reviews from MAC users prior to buying, but I wan’t paying attention for that either.

I discovered that my second computer would not accept the internal adapter card and returned for replacement with the D-Link DWA USB adapter.

Glad I did since installation takes only a few minutes and it seems to work just as good…also portable if I ever need to move it to a different computer. I am using the DWA-140 adapter with the D-Link DIR-655 wireless N router. Would highly recommend.

Based on previous reviews here and on other sites, it seems that either this works beautifully or it pukes. I decided to take a chance on this since the price was right and it was recommended for my D-Link DIR-625 router.

I connect three computers to my wireless DIR-625 router. I had no problem connecting my two other computers. However, my third computer did not have an available internal slot, so I opted for this USB device.

The first time I purchased this, I spent two hours on the phone with Level 1 tech support due to a myriad of issues (wouldn’t connect to a hidden SSID, wouldn’t connect to an unsecured wireless network from the neighbor, etc.). In the end, the agent could not resolve my issue, and he transferred me to Level 2 support. That Level 2 agent told me he couldn’t help me because based on all the work the Level 1 tech performed, he concluded that the card was dead. He told me to exchange it for a new one.

The second card was finally able to connect, albeit at a very slow rate. My laptop in the same location was getting about 80% connectivity throughput, whereas this card was getting about 20%. Additionally, it was constantly dropping the connection. After sitting on the phone with support once again, they told me there was a problem with this card.

When I returned the second card, I purchased a Belkin N+ MIMO USB card and couldn’t be happier. The Belkin installed in minutes and I had no problem configuring the software to connect to my hidden SSID. The Belkin has not dropped the connection at all and I’m getting very good throughput.
