Wireless AC Standard :
802.11ac is a new networking standard that produces high-throughput wireless speed on the 5 GHz band. This means that you can enjoy clear, smooth streaming HD video from your favorite websites and services, lag-free online gaming, and clear audio and video calls over the Internet. Wireless AC gives you the smooth, lightning-fast performance you need to get the most out of your Internet connection.
The DWA-172 supports the MU-MIMO technology, allowing you to fully utilize the power of your Wireless AC Wave 2 router. When several clients supporting MU-MIMO connect to a Wireless Wave 2 router, it can transmit independent data streams to them simultaneosuly via different antennas. This allows you to use wireless channel for transmitting data more effectively and significantly improves overall Wi-Fi throughput.
Extended Wireless Range :
The DWA-172 is designed to provide wireless connectivity in hard-to-reach places. Its high-gain antenna provides a boosted signal reception so that you can enjoy wireless coverage over a wider distance than with a regular wireless adapter. The antenna is also rotatable so you can eliminate dead spots by fine-tuning the positioning to get the best available wireless connectivity.
Compatible With All Your Wireless Products :
While the DWA-172 adapter delivers cutting-edge 802.11ac speed to your home network, it’s also backward compatible with all of your current wireless products.
Low-Interference Bandwidth :
The DWA-172 Wireless AC Dual Band USB Adapter uses dual-band technology, providing low-interference 5 GHz bandwidth. Check your email and surf the Internet on the 2.4 GHz band; play online games, make calls over the Internet, and stream HD movies to multiple devices using the cleaner, low-interference 5 GHz band. Whatever you like to do online, dual-band technology has you covered.
Robust Security Options :
The DWA-172 supports WPA2 encryption that provides a protected wireless network connection and protects transmitted data. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) support greatly facilitates the connection process, allowing you to set up a connection easily with the touch of a button in the connection utility.
