D-Link Brings 802.11n Speeds to Your ExpressCard Slot

Illustration for article titled D-Link Brings 802.11n Speeds to Your ExpressCard Slot

Here's one more device you can slide inside your notebook's ExpressCard slot. D-Link's DWL-643 Xtreme N adapter supercharges your throughput by hitting speeds that max out at 300Mbps when connected to an Xtreme N router. The card was designed to automatically detect and connect to any of D-Link's wireless products and is also backwards compatible with 802.11b/g networks. Just remember that you'll need an Xtreme N router to take advantage of the speeds, otherwise save your cash and stick with your notebook's built-in wireless support.

Is there a reason why this would be a better choice than a USB Wireless N adapter (D-Link or others)? One benefit I can see to the external USB is portability if I should have a machine without an ExpressCard slot. I am just wondering if there are some significant performance issues or others that make the ExpressCard approach more desirable?
