USB adapter featuring wireless 802.11n and push-button security, in a thumbnail sized design
London, UK – 15th December 2009 – D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for business and consumers, today announced that it is shipping the D-Link Wireless N Nano USB Adapter incorporating the speed and greater range of 802.11n Wi-Fi technology, into one of the smallest form factors of its type on the market.
D-Link’s Wireless N Nano USB Adapter, DWA-131, provides an easy and cost-effective way to upgrade the wireless network performance of a desktop or notebook computer. The Nano Adapter connects to a Wireless 802.11n network providing download speeds of up to 300 Mbps*1. Network users can access high-speed Internet services, transfer files and stream media from virtually anywhere in their home or office.
The Nano Adapter’s Wi-Fi Protected Setup, WPS feature, enables it to establish an easy, one-time, single-click secure connection with a WPS-enabled access point or wireless router, eliminating the need for manual entry of complex encryption codes. WPS automatically sets advanced security features using WPA2 encryption. As an alternative, D-Link's Quick Setup Wizard also provides an easy way to set up the USB adapter and the included Wireless Manager helps to keep track of recently accessed networks.
"With its sleek compact design and unmatched performance, this ultra-portable USB adapter is an ideal choice for setting up a secure, high-performance wireless connection" explains Andrew Mulholland, Marketing Manager for D-Link UKI.
The D-Link Nano Adapter uses 802.11n technology to maximise the speed and range of wireless signals to significantly outperform 802.11g devices*2, while maintaining compatibility with existing 802.11b/g wireless routers and access points.
D-Link Wireless N products use smart antenna technology to transmit multiple streams of data, bouncing wireless signals off walls and ceilings to work around obstructions and help eliminate dead spots, allowing users to receive wireless signals in the farthest corners of their home or office.

The DWA-131 will be available on the 21st December from Play.com for £34.99.
