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-Definition (HD) video streams throughout the house. This is achieved by using the DWA-160 together with a draft 802.11n dual band router (D-Link DIR-855 or DGL-4500 recommended).
BENEFITS OF DUAL BAND 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.
EASY TO SET UP, EASY TO USE The D-Link Quick Adapter Setup Wizard guides you step-by-step through the installation process. Configure this USB adapter without having to call a networking expert to help you. 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.
With unmatched wireless performance, reception, and security, the D-Link Xtreme N Dual Band USB Adapter (DWA-160) is the best choice for easily adding or upgrading wireless connectivity to your PC.

I Price matched this and got it for 40 bucks. Its really good and always gives me a 300 speed all the time. I don't know what people rated it soo bad. It acually is really good. it doesn't disconnect for me and yaa. Althought there isn't much of a difference over dual band than single.
I have this paired with a dir-825 router.
5 bars of signal strength, bouncing between 216-243Mbps at the moment at 5Ghz. Using it with a D-Link DIR-825 dual N-band router. Using the extension/cradle sitting up high on the desk about 6 ft away from the router on the other side of a wall.
After owning G routers (both D-Link and Linksys and one crappy Retail Plus N model) I'm happy to say that I've finally emabraced wireless as a standard. I was never impressed with wireless (atleast in my house) which is odd because I live on a very remote farm with wind and space all around me for miles (zero interference) and I always had issues with signal strength.
