Connect to a high-speed wireless network with D-Link's Wireless N Dualband PCIe Adapter. This adapter uses Dualband technology to create two networks allowing you to connect at speeds of up to 300 Mbps in either the more commonly used 2.4 GHz band - for Internet surfing, emailing or online shopping- or the less congested 5 GHz band - ideal for gaming and High Definition streaming. This is the ideal adapter if you are looking to update your desktop computer to provide you with the fastest wireless speeds today. It is an excellent complement for households that already have Dualband technology in their homes.

This adapter is designed for home users looking for a wireless connection that can handle video streaming throughout the house, and is the ideal complement for D-Link's Dualband routers like the Dualband HD Media Router (DIR-857).

To protect your data and privacy, the Wireless N Dualband PCIe Adapter supports WEP, WPA, and WPA2 encryption for connecting to a secure wireless network, keeping your network traffic secure. The Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) feature enables devices to easily establish a secure connection to an Access Point or wireless router, eliminating the need for complex encryption codes.

The Wireless N Dualband PCIe Adapter provides a 300 Mbps high-speed connection to other Wireless N 150 or Wireless N devices, and is backwards compatible with 802.11g and 802.11a devices, ensuring interoperability with a wide range of wireless routers and existing networks.

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 devices. The DWA-566 fits into any standard PCI Express slots - x1, x4, x8, or x16.

Get connected, stay connected
The 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. 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 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz wireless signals. This allows you to check e-mail and browse the Internet using the 2.4 GHz band or stream HD movies and other media on the 5 GHz band. The 5 GHz 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 802.11g. The DWA-566 is also backward compatible to 802.11g, which means it can be used in existing 802.11g networks.
