Pros Included Adapter Stand
Cons Poor Reliability and BSODs
Summary I purchased the wua2340 to replace my good old reliable Linksys usb (wusb54g) desktop adapter which I passed on to my daughter at college. It was a good opportunity as I had recently upgraded my old Netgear router to the Dlink RangeBooster wbr2310 and this adapter would leverage the 108Mbps capabilities. I immediately started experiencing the dreaded Windows XP blue-screen-of-death (BSOD), the text of which implicated the wua2340’s driver (a5agu.sys). I immediately located, downloaded and installed Dlink’s latest driver but unfortunately the condition continued. Dlink technical support advised me I had a defective adapter and directed me to exchange it for a new one.
I was skeptical as I had researched the problem on the internet searching on “bsod” and a5agu.sys and found many other similar problems without resolution. Some related to a buffer-overflow security exploit in earlier driver versions, but supposedly fixed in later versions. So I played the game and tried a replacement and the problem remained. I returned the adapter for refund and am now trying the Netgear WG111T. No problems so far.
Pros It looks cute
Cons THE WORST OF THE WORST! TERRIBLE TECH SUPPORT AND CUSTOMER SERVICE
Summary I bought this from Best Buy, I thought it looks very cool but every 10 to 15 minutes, it will crash and gives me the blue screen of death!
The a5agu.sys driver is flawed and the tech support is horrible!!! They can't solve the problem and they refused to issue an RMA number!!!
AVOID DLINK!!! THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE AND TECH SUPPORT IS THE WORST!!!

"Worst ever"on by jinglesassy
Pros None none none
Cons It exists.
Summary Horrible range falls apart have to tape it together causes bsods crashes cheaply made. not even good as a paper weight because its so light and would fall apart in 1 mph wind. DO NOT BUY AT ALL! NOT EVEN FOR YOUR WORST ENEMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"useless junk"on by balidoy
Pros none whatsoever
Cons did not find wifi, disabled router
Summary Not only did it not detect my wireless network, it also locked up my router. Had to reset my router (causing loss of is setup), and do a system restore before I could reconnect to the internet.
