HD45U Hi-Gain™ Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter

Convert your laptop or desktop to receive the 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz frequency at up to 450Mbps! Ultimate Flexibility and Maximum Performance!
Avoid interference and maximize throughput for smoother and faster video streaming, wireless gaming, and file transferring with this Hi-Gain™ Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter. The HD45U instantly converts your laptop or desktop to receive the 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz frequency at up to 450Mbps. Use the USB adapter to deliver a portable dual-band selectable signal to your device. The HD45U brings Dual-Band technology to all your Windows and Mac computers!  Dual-Band works with both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz frequencies enabling a blazing fast connection, even in heavily congested Wi-Fi areas. This compact, sleek device is great for the mobile user connecting to networks at blazing fast speeds.
Most homes and offices have a wireless router, but a common problem with standard wireless routers is that the quality of most standard wireless networks diminishes significantly past a coverage radius of 200 feet. Anywhere outside the coverage zone will have slow and unstable connections, or even as major as no connection at all.  With the arrival of 5GHz Wi-Fi, wireless networks can improve on these slow speeds and unstable connections.  The HD45U is designed with Dual-Band technology to increase your wireless reception so you can receive both 2.4GHZ frequency signals and 5.0GHz frequency signals.
Dual-Band technology provides maximum flexibility to connect to the popular 2.4GHz frequency and off-load traffic to the 5.0GHz frequency. Similar to driving in the carpool lane on the freeway, devices using the 5.0GHz frequency are able to “bypass” the heavily congested 2.4GHz frequency networks. Because the 5.0GHz frequency is less crowded, devices on this network have a stronger and more solid wireless connection, improving overall performance. Even if your wireless network is not 5.0GHz compatible, the HD45U can be set to accept 2.4GHz signals too.
While most standard dual-bad transfer speeds are up to 300mbps for both frequencies, the Hawking dual-band products promote data speeds of up to 300mbps for 2.4GHz frequencies and 450mbps for 5.0GHz frequencies. This means users can have more bandwidth and transfer more files in less time.
Because the 2.4GHz frequency is the most commonly used, interference with other 2.4GHz networks is inevitable, limiting your network speed and performance. With the availability of the 5.0GHz frequency, users can circumvent this interference and optimize their Wi-Fi connectivity.
Use the chart below to see which USB adapter is right for you. The HD45U dual-band Wireless-N USB adapter is a great wireless solution for consumers in a Wi-Fi congested area looking for incredibly fast network speeds and for consumers looking to create 5.0GHz network compability for their laptop or desktop.
