New Around Here
I have a D-Link DGL-4500 and DWA-160s (Rev A and B). They're running 5GHz, WPA2, AES and all have the latest firmware and having different speed, disconnect issues on XP Pro SP3.

Do you think a Linksys WPC600N would be a better choice than the D-link USB lineup of 5GHz adapters with the DGL-4500? Any internal testing with all of these together?
I had problems when using the DWA-160 and the DIR-855. Ended up using the Netgear WNDA3100. It is essentially a copy of the DWA-160, using the same Atheros AR9170 MAC/BB and AR9104 Dual-band 2x2 MIMO radio, but, apparently, better drivers.

Thanks for quick reply. I was hoping for a cardbus adapter to replace the USB adapters. I wound up returning the old A rev for a B rev and now have two Bs. Thought some changes on the router would make the Bs behave better but I'm still at a less than optimal position.

Anyone else?
