The next generation 802.11ac wireless standard is set to revolutionize Wi-Fi. Super-speed 802.11ac dual-band routers are already available but wireless devices are still stuck with 802.11n technology. Upgrade your wireless device to dual-band 802.11ac with the fastest possible USB 3.0 connectivity for blistering Wi-Fi speeds on the interference free 5Ghz frequency band.

World’s Fastest - 802.11ac Truly Realized with USB 3.0
USB 3.0 is up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 and specifies a maximum transmission speed of up to 5Gbps. Providing quicker data transmission times, and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 (which specifies a maximum speed of 480Mbps), USB 3.0 is the new standard in connectivity – enabling devices to achieve the superfast speeds which 802.11ac can provide. As the first 802.11ac USB adapter to offer USB 3.0 connectivity, the EW-7822UAC is the fastest 802.11ac USB adapter in the world.
