I was unhappy with by Linksys adapter, I just purchase a extended
warrenty on the adapter and I call tech support. They wouldnt help me;
stating my router is out of warrenty. I decided to purchase all D-link
products; Dir-825 router with the D-Link DWA-160 Xtreme N Duo Dual
Band. Tech support was easy to reach and the tech directed me to the
manual setting of the router, once there I had a idea from my research
what to do and mention it to him. We followed the direction I got from [...] to
the letter. I was only getting 130 Mbps with my adapter. Im using Rev. A
from Amazon.com with XP Professional. The only thing I did differently
from the instruction Im going to provide was to rename my network name
by putting a 1 on the previous name so I would be sure to connected too
the changed network. Im running a total of three computer at the same
time on the network and getting a very strong signal; the wireless
connections are on the second floor of my house. You also would be safe
to retype your password while in your manual setup. The instructions are
300Mbps Connection Requirements! Please Read!

To have your Draft N wireless network connect at 300Mbps as it should,
ensure that the following requirements are met.
1) The router and adapter are both D-Link 802.11N products and are using
the latest firmeware/drivers. Ensure that the 802.11 Mode of the router has
a 802.11N mode selected. Also if you have issues with mixed mode, try
locking the 802.11Mode to either 802.11N Only or 802.11G/N.
2) If you are using encryption the router must be configured to use AES
cipher. In some firmware versions/models, the only way to get the AES
cipher is to run WPA2. If you can not select the Cipher, selecting WPA2
only will force this cipher type.
3) The channel width needs to be set to 20/40Auto, if it is not, the adapter
will report a connection speed of 130Mbps. This is a feature that was
added for compatibility with Intel 802.11N adapters, as they only operate
on a channel width of 20.
D-Link reccomends that you use the D-Link Wireless utility, however the
Windows Zero Config will also work.
Assuming you have met all of these conditions, you should se e a 300Mbps
connection speed with either the D-Link Utility or W ZC.
Note: Not all Intel adapters are the same as D-Links N line. Some Intel
adapters do not support the broader 40 Channel Width option. This (by
design) limits their connection speed to 130. Check the specifications of
your Intel adapter to ensure that it is capable of bonding on the 40Mhz
range to achieve the full 300Mbps.
