D-Link Wireless Ac Dual Band Mini USB Adapter
South Africa

AADIL, South Africa. 20 September 2016

Absolutely useless product. It's not exactly faulty. Just plain old useless. It doesn't even pick up the home wifi.. Using my phone as a Hotspot it picks it up and works ten time slower than a built in wifi of a my laptop. Don't waste your money.. Useless piece of garbage!
