    Wireless N300 Dual Band PCI Express Desktop Adapter



    The Wireless N300 Dual Band PCI Express Desktop Adapter lets you upgrade any desktop computer with a PCI Express slot. The DWA-566 enables you to get up to 300Mbps and expanded wireless range - significantly outperforming older Wireless G techology that you may have on your desktop. The DWA-566 fits into any standard PCI Express slots – x1, x4, x8, or x16. Use the D-Link Quick Adapter Setup Wizard to quickly and easily connect your desktop to your network with secure encryption using WPA™ or WPA2™.  



    • Wireless N300 Technology

      Get up to 300Mbps for optimized performance and reliable coverage 
    • Dual Band Performance

      Delivers fast wireless speeds and less interference for maximum throughput
    • Backward Compatible

      Compatible with 802.11b/g devices
    • Simple Setup

      Simple and intuitive setup wizard will have your adapter installed in minutes
    • Get Connected and Stay Connected

      The Wireless N300 Dual Band Desktop PCI Express Adapter is powered by Wireless N technology and uses two external antennas to provide superior wireless reception in your home or office. This adapter is designed for use in larger homes and offices, or for users running multiple bandwidth-intensive applications. This adapter enables you to simultaneously make or receive Internet phone calls (VoIP), surf the Web, transfer files, and stream High-Definition (HD) media. The DWA-566 supports WPA™ and WPA2™ encryption that allow you to connect securely to a wireless network.
    • Dual Band Advantage

      The dual band N technology in the DWA-566 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 802.11g2. The DWA-566 is also backward compatible to 802.11g, which means it can be used in existing 802.11g networks.
    • Simple Setup

      A Quick Setup Wizard guides users through a simplified installation process so that you can configure this adapter without having to call a networking expert for help. Wireless Manager software is included with this product to keep track of all most frequently accessed networks. With unmatched wireless performance, reception, and security, this adapter is the best choice for easily adding or upgrading wireless connectivity to desktop computers.

    1 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and
    network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless range and speed rates are D-Link RELATIVE performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates
    of a standard Wireless G product from D-Link. Maximum throughput based on D-Link 802.11n devices.
    2 Maximum throughput and performance derived from PCI and PCI Express specifications.
    3 24/7 Basic Installation Support is available only in the USA for the first 30 days from date of original purchase.
    4 1-Year Limited Warranty available only in the USA and Canada.
