HW17ACU WiFi AC1750 USB Adapter

Upgrade your WiFi with Premium Connectivity & Versatility
Use the HW17ACU WiFi AC1750 USB Adapter to instantly increase the speed of your network via USB port. Make the move to the latest Wireless-1750AC network standard. The powerful design of the HW17ACU Wireless AC1750 USB Network Adapter is perfect for upgrading your laptop or desktop with the blazing fast speeds of Wireless-1750AC. Maximize your networking flexibility, giving yourself greater range and overall performance. The perfect addition for your computers, the HW17ACU Wireless AC1750 USB Network Adapter packs a powerful punch, giving speeds up to 9x faster than 802.11n built-in WiFi adapters. The HW17ACU also supports 802.11a/b/g/n backwards compatibility, meaning you can still connect to older routers/repeaters/access points that are not yet on the 802.11ac standard. Stay portable while you are at home or on the go. The HW17ACU will deliver convenient and consistent WiFi coverage for seamless HD streaming, gaming and other data-intensive activities.

2.4GHz Wireless 802.11b/g/n is the most commonly used wireless standard. Because of this popularity, interference and lag are common in the 2.4GHz network, especially in areas with a lot of wireless networks. 5GHz Wireless-AC was designed to get past this interference. Using a different frequency allows 5GHz Wireless-AC to maintain high speeds and throughput. The trade off of 5GHz Wireless-AC is the range is reduced when compared to 2.4GHz wireless networks.
Wireless-AC is built on a Dual-Band standard. Dual-Band Technology provides maximum flexibility allowing selection of the popular 2.4GHz frequency for long range applications or or selection of the faster, less-crowded 5GHz frequency for data intensive applications.
With HW17ACU Wireless-AC, you have the option to connect to 5GHz network for high speed streaming or 2.4GHz for more distanced connection.

WiFi Multimedia (WMM Wireless QoS)
The HW17ACU supports WMM (WMM Wireless QoS). This means that this feature, when enabled on your supported router, gives priority to voice and video traffic over WiFi. Any WiFi devices that are video messaging or watching streaming video will have higher priority over other internet traffic. This should allow a smoother and clearer video for the user.
