London, 8th February 2015 – D-Link today announced the uniquely-shaped AC1900 Ultra Wi-Fi USB Adapter (DWA-192). Designed to bring faster speeds and extended range to laptops and desktop PCs, the DWA-192 boasts 3×3 internal antennas, dual-band technology (2.4GHz and 5GHz) and speeds of up to 1900Mbps.

“Today’s computers are demanding faster Wi-Fi to keep up with applications such as streaming HD, gaming and more,” said Paul Routledge, D-Link UK Country Manager. “Our new AC1900 Ultra Wi-Fi USB Adapter will significantly upgrade the network speeds of a device, providing the ability to do more online and stray further from the home router.”
The AC1900 Adapter is ideal for use in larger homes and for users who need a faster Wi-Fi connection. It is backward compatible with 802.11n/g/a technology and works with all brands of Wi-Fi routers and range extenders making it a simple way to upgrade a laptop or desktop PC to Wireless AC speeds. For ultimate performance, this adapter can be used with a D-Link ULTRA Series Wi-Fi Router to maximise home network speeds.
The AC1900 Ultra Wi-Fi USB Adapter also features Advanced AC SmartBeam technology, which directs bandwidth to improve the Wi-Fi signal between the connected router and the adapter. SmartBeam provides a faster connection for the laptop or desktop that is connected to the USB adapter for lag-free HD gaming and streaming.
With USB 3.0 technology, users will also get a 10 times performance increase and better power management. Data transfer speeds will reach up to 5Gbps compared to 480Mbps on the USB 2.0 standard.
