Dual-band Wireless-AC1200 USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter

- Next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi - up to three times faster than 2x2 802.11n adapters
- Selectable 5 GHz/2.4 GHz dual bands increase signal clarity for better HD multimedia
- AiRadar technology provides a stronger signal over greater distances
- External high-gain antenna for 150% stronger Wi-Fi signal
- USB 3.0 connection for high-performance wireless networking with desktop and notebook PCs

The ASUS USB-AC56 is a dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter with a USB 3.0 connection that brings high-performance wireless networking support to desktop and notebook PCs. The USB-AC56 features a USB 3.0 connection with support for wireless data rates up to 300 Mbit/s at 2.4 GHz and 867 Mbit/s at 5 GHz with compatible routers. Suitable for use with both desktop and notebook PCs, the USB-AC56 features a dual internal antenna design for great wireless network coverage with minimal desktop clutter and a removable high-gain external antenna that boosts reception still further in weak Wi-Fi signal areas.


Next gen 802.11ac wireless

Up to 3X faster than 2x2 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-AC1200 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 AiRadar 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-AC1200 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 the fastest, most stable connection strength.


USB 3.0 for full 802.11ac performance

USB 3.0 allows the USB-AC56 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1200 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.

The USB-AC56 also includes a desktop cradle with a three-foot cable for more flexible positioning in troublesome Wi-Fi reception areas.

Gets signal where others cant

Bought it for trying out in a tin shed about 75m away from a brick house with the Standard Vodafone Home WiFI router in the middle of it, phones and laptops cant get signal to the SSID but this can at about 65% strength and while not blistering fast speeds, is perfectly adequate of streaming 1080P video without any problems whatsoever

Cable?

This network adapter is amazing, but it has the single WORST cable i have ever used in my entire life, its extremely hard to put it in a location since the heavy, hard to bend cable will just pull it around and make it fall over.

Works well but support from Asus could be better....

First off this is a good product. It fast and in my experience connected seamlessly. I would say that said having a big device like this sticking out of a USB port makes me uncomfortable. You can see why they provided a cradle with cable connection to the USB port. The cradle works well but I was unlucky as ours was faulty. Support from PB was superb. It was replaced quickly and they met the cost of couriers, That said I can not say as much for Asus. They simply suggested I install the driver when I contacted them which was the first thing I had done. I suspect they rely on the retailer to handle hardware problems. Would have been nice to see...view more

Works right to my limit.

I'm happy with this product, I get an easy 100/20 in my garage, I like that I don't have to fluff around with tiny coax connectors too.
I really like the chunky cable and the USB 3.0 cradle too.
