Quality D-Link Product

by Kyle on 10/28/2012

This card is great. I had one problem - the drivers. This was to be installed in a computer that was not near a location where I could wire it. I had downloaded the drivers from the D-Link website, figuring they may not be part of the normal system drivers available. The drivers showed compatible with Windows 7 64-bit, but the setup option stated otherwise. I attempted to load the driver manually, also without luck. Finally, I moved it to another room, wired it and Windows found them.

Product Overview

Wireless N Technology for Fast Speeds
The D-Link Wireless N 300 Dual Band Desktop PCI Express Adapter with Wireless N technology maximizes the speed and range of your wireless signal to significantly outperform Wireless G devices1. The DWA-566 fits into any standard PCI Express slots – x1, x4, x8, or x16.

Get Connected, Stay ConnectedThe Wireless N 300 Dual Band Desktop PCI Express Adapter is powered by Wireless N technology and uses two external antennas to provide superior wireless reception in your home or office. This adapter is designed for use in larger homes and offices, or for users running multiple bandwidth-intensive applications. This adapter enables you to simultaneously make or receive Internet phone calls (VoIP), surf the Web, transfer files, and stream High-Definition (HD) media when connected to an Xtreme N Gigabit Router (DIR-825 or DIR-855). The DWA-566 supports WPA™ and WPA2™ encryption that allow you to connect securely to a wireless network.

The Benefits of Dual Band
The dual band N technology in the DWA-566 supports selectable 2.4GHz or 5GHz wireless signals. This allows you to check e-mail and browse the Internet using the 2.4GHz band or stream HD movies and other media on the 5GHz band. The 5GHz wireless band is the best technology available for wirelessly streaming HD videos across your network. It achieves this by operating in a clear wireless band to help avoid interference that may slow down and limit the range of current wireless technologies like 802.11g2. The DWA-566 is also backward compatible to 802.11g, which means it can be used in existing 802.11g networks.
