I followed a recommendation by which? and am very happy with my new laptop...

D-link has made me very happy This DWA 192 is very stable, and has increased my mps to 546 from 326. In 3 min. it was set up and completely running. My Router is a ASUS A 1900 RT-A 68U. I had Netis 3.
This adapter is very stable, has good signal strength and a good data rate. Works well in various areas of the house
Round like a sphere, or an orb
I am running this with my Mac Mini. Downloaded and installed software, and I was up and running in no time. I am connecting at
Anywhere between 867 and 1167 Mbps, so no complaints there, before 867 was as fast as it would connect. So far, I am impressed No drops, faster, no issues
I did have some initial issues with the setup on one of my computers. After some troubleshooting, I figured out that it was the USB 3.0 controller driver for the motherboard that was causing the issue
No windows 10 support or OS even listed on dlink web site
Drivers will not install even when "Trouble shoot" and test is done with windows 8 7, and the dreaded vista
So here I sits and feel like I just got the short end of the shaft on this deal
Not much to say about the AC 1900 super usb 3 if it will not work according to directions
