Alfa AWUS036ACH- 802.11ac Power Boost 867 Mbps Wi-Fi Adapter
Alfa AWUS036ACH is the most powerful 802.11ac adapter from Alfa Network, Inc, featuring a power upgrade over it’s predecessor AWUS036AC. It is a new long range dual antenna 867 Mbps Wi-Fi USB adapter compatible with Windows Vista through Windows 10. It features two RP-SMA antenna ports, and two 5 dBi dual-band antennas. The antennas are detachable and can be upgraded.
AWUS036ACH is capable of receiving and transmitting on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz bands. With 802.11ac standard routers, it can achieve throughput speeds up to 867 Mbps, almost three times that of the 802.11n maximum of 300 Mbps. This adapter is backward compatible with 802.11g and 802.11n networks, but will have limited speed with those networks. An 802.11ac router is required for the maximum throughput.
High Power 802.11ac = Fast Speed and Long Range
The dual antennas, built-in high power amplifier, and high receive sensitivity also allow it to pick up Wi-Fi signals from up to 2 times the distance of newer internal 802.11ac Wi-Fi cards shipping inside today’s laptops. This is brand new in retail box and includes the adapter, two 5 dBi dual-band antennas, driver CD, and USB docking base. We buy direct from Alfa and are an authorized retailer of Alfa products.
