ASUS USB-AC56 AC1300 Dual-Band USB 3.0 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi Adapter Dongles
Next gen 802.11ac wireless, up to 3X faster than 2×2 wireless N adapters
The fastest Wi-Fi ever becomes more accessible via USB, going up to 867 Mbps on the clear 5 GHz band. Using 802.11ac wireless, faster connectivity and enjoyment come to all your devices. Compared with current 802.11n, the USB-AC56 delivers up to 867 Mbps at 5 GHz, which is 3X faster than 802.11n!
Maximum flexibility for maximum wireless coverage
The USB-AC56 wireless-AC1300 USB adapter can cover larger homes and offices, including multi-floor locations. Its detachable high-gain external antenna and strong dual internal antennas provide ample transmission power for bigger areas. The detachable antenna can be removed to reduce power draw and emissions should medium-range coverage be sufficient. It can also be upgraded with a more powerful antenna if needed.
Intelligent signal management for stable wireless connections
ASUS Ai Radar intelligently strengthens wireless device connectivity using precise directional signal amplification for extended coverage, increased data throughput speed, and enhanced stability. Because connection strength varies based on your environment, the USB-AC56 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1300 USB wireless adapter uses two internal antennas and an external high gain antenna and high-powered beam packing to detect wireless router locations to shape transmissions so they’re optimized for fast and stable connection strength.
USB 3.0 for full 802.11ac performance
USB 3.0 allows the USB-AC56 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1300 USB wireless adapter to pair with notebooks and desktops using a bandwidth up to ten times that of USB 2.0. It means the full advantage of 802.11ac networking is realized, as the adapter has enough throughput overhead to support much faster network speeds.
