It gives users the ability to access crystal clear 5GHz connections to upgrade their notebook or PC’s wireless capabilities, while ensuring that they can still access legacy 2.4GHz band wireless networks.

WPA / WPA2 Encryptions - Advanced Security
The T2U provides WPA/WPA2 encryptions created by the WI-FI Alliance, promoting interoperability and security for WLAN, which effectively and efficiently protects the wireless network.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for my needs I have had this adapter for a while now, I have a none WiFi PC this works great. Typical Maplin whenever I am looking for product I can't find elsewhere they seem to come up trumps every time. Mike27

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Limited Value We have Virgin's 150mps high-speed internet at home, but with an older laptop, I only have 2G capability, so I bought this to add 5G connectivity, but what a disappointment. Operating 'Windows 10', (as we're all forced to do these days), installation was simple enough and it identified both channels, but streaming on 5G was intermittent at best and signal kept on being lost, so after a day of trying I stopped, unplugged the device and relegated it to my drawer full of electrical odds'n'ends that aren't used anymore. The theory is good, but in practice, perhaps I bought too cheap a version, as the true value of the item is nil, bearing in mind that it worked, then it didn't, then it got filed under 'Do Not Bother Using'. Buy with limited expectations, as if you figure on plugging, playing and flying, you might not get what you expect!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says on the tin! Decided to get rid of Ethernet interconnections because of noise on amateur radio equipment, and go over to wirelss links for internet etc. At the same time I was prepared to accept the slower speed of wirelss connections even using 5GHz band, compared with Ethernet. This unit on an old Gigabyte board with AMD processor works a treat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for money Bought this to breathe new life into my daughters laptop. Immediate difference in speed and for a reasonable price. Very easy to setup as it was pretty much plug and play. Overall a good purchase.

I have Hitachi TV which specifies Veezy 200 dongle. IEEE 802.11-n. Maplin one offers next generation IEEE 802.11-ac with backward compatibility to -n so quite attractive. Does it require installation of software? Easy to do on PC but not on a TV !

We bought this yesterday to give a gaming desktop PC wifi capabilities. The speed on it isn't very good though, with 27-48% signal strength at best. With laptops in the same room we get perfect signal and speeds, any ideas to make this better?
