One of their gaming-oriented products has been dubbed D-Link RangeBooster N USB Adapter and was launched somewhere in the first half of 2007. It makes use of the latest wireless technology, n Draft, which provides users with higher bandwidth speeds and more coverage than previous standards.

The D-Link RangeBooster has been designed with a round form factor, looking like something you can easily fit in your pockets. It has been equipped with an USB interface, which allows it to be used by both desktops and notebooks users.

The product can be used to upgrade your wireless device to the latest n Draft technology, requiring the user to only plug the device in an available USB port. D-Link's DWA 142 RangeBooster has backwards compatibility with 802.11g network standards, which means almost every notebook user can benefit from its performance.
