"The AC1200 USB3.0 adapter's install process is quick and clean”
"…registered the highest throughput tested in PCMag lab among consumer wireless devices”
"Definitely fast enough to handle demanding media streaming”
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.
