Xtreme N Dual Band USB Adapter



Upgrade your Router

The D-Link® Xtreme N® Dual Band USB Adapter (DWA-160) is the latest addition to the award-winning Xtreme N product family. The DWA-160 is designed for users looking to get a reliable wireless connection that can handle High-De?nition (HD) video streams throughout the house. This is achieved by using the DWA-160 together with an 11n dual band router (D-Link DIR-855 or DIR-825 recommended).

The dual band N technology in the DWA-160 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 802.11g. The DWA-160 is also backward compatible to 802.11g, which means it can be used in existing 802.11g networks.


Simple Setup

The D-Link Quick Adapter Setup Wizard guides you step-by-step through the installation process. Con? gure this USB adapter without having to call a networking expert to help you. The DWA-160 features a Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) Push Button for easy connection to a wireless network. The D-Link Wireless Manager is also included with this product to keep track of your most frequently accessed networks so that you can join them quickly and easily.
