This really deopends on what you want to do actually. The connection to the internet does NOT rely solely on your WAP or notebook wireless adaptor, but also to the ISP whoese service you're dependant on.
Buying this MAY help a little, but in the end, irrgardless of the product you buy, if you are connecting to a standard home based AP with less then 5 people connectiing to it at the same time, relying on a physical line (be it cable or ISDN) that comes out from the modem, the question you should be asking is, how is the latency on the network you are using? if your intention of buying this is due to the fact that you are constantly on the move and connect to free wireless AP's located everywhere, then yes it would be a good buy. Else, if you're a home based user, i would suggest you just upgrade your modem or change ISP's altogether. Hope this helps.

this works exactly as like a built in LAN adapter to your laptop. You may use this as a backup for your built in laptop LAN adapter. Altough this is more useful for some IT professionals who sometimes require a two LAN setup. I have also attached a useful guide that if found on the product catalogue itself.
WHAT THIS PRODUCT DOES Connect to your wired home network by adding a D-Link 10/100 Fast Ethernet Notebook Adapter to your notebook computer. Once connected, you can access shared documents, music, and photos from other computers in your network. If your network has a high-speed Internet connection, you can also check e-mail, browse the web, and chat with friends and family online.
Try uninstalling anything that may have got installed from the installation. Also make sure you have the most upto date software from dlink.com. You can also get firmware updates there for the device as well. Just enter the model number and look for the drivers for that device.
There is a reset button on the back of the wireless device you are trying to connect to. Press and hold in the reset button for 10-15 seconds, this will restore the device to factory defaults and should fix the problem. You will need to reconfigure the device as you need it. To do this, from a computer on the same network, logon the wireless device. You will need to use the IP of the wireless device. Open internet explorer and in the address window enter the following and press the enter key. EXAMPLE http://192.168.2.1 This will give you the logon page of wireless device to allow configuration. If this does not fix the problem, then the wireless device is defective. BPCS
