  • Backward compatible - with existing 802.11g and wireless N150 networks

Benefits of Dual Band
The DWA-160 supports Wireless N signals in either the 2.4 or 5 GHz frequency range. This allows you to check e-mail and browse the Internet using the 2.4GHz band while reserving the 5GHz band for streaming HD movies and other media. The DWA-160 is also backward compatible, which means it can be used in existing 802.11g or 802.11a networks to enable significantly improved reception1.

Double Wireless N Gains
Wireless N technology offers more speed, extended coverage and virtually no dead spots compared to previous wireless technologies. Only now with the DWA-160, these benefits are also available in the untapped 5 GHz radio spectrum, which offers more channels and is less subject to interference, a growing issue in populated areas where Wi-Fi networks and multiple gadgets such as baby monitors weaken the signal.

Easy to Set Up, Easy to Use
A Quick Setup Wizard guides you step-by-step in your own language -18 are supported- through the installation process, allowing you to configure this adapter without having to call a networking expert for help. The Wireless Manager is included with this product to keep track of all of the most frequently accessed networks.

Improved Wireless Security
The DWA-160 supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), a new method for easily configuring data encryption on the wireless network without having to remember complicated passwords and key them in several times. WPS works by pressing the button on the side of the router, then clicking from within the adapter's utility software to make the pair automatically generate the necessary wireless network name (SSID) and encryption keys. The PIN method is also supported. WPS is a standard from the Wi-Fi Alliance so any devices displaying the logo will work with each other, irrespective of the brand.

1 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11g, 802.11a and 802.11n specifications. 802.11n speeds obtainable when operating with Wireless N products. Actual data throughput may vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors may adversely affect wireless signal range.
