What can I expect with this USB network adapter?
Improve your laptop’s Wi-Fi performance with the Netgear AC1200 wireless network adapter. It provides a connection to a wireless network where no pre-existing wireless features are present on your desktop or laptop computer via USB. You may also upgrade an existing connection. Simultaneous dual band wireless with up to 1200mbps speeds and beamforming technology provide you with a stable directed connection to your router, and the speed to allow a multitude of wireless applications.

What are the benefits of dual band?
Dual band provides two operating frequencies. The 2.4GHz band is usually used for running everyday web applications, like browsing the internet or checking your e-mail. On the other hand, the 5GHz band offers more bandwidth for HD media streaming and other wireless network heavy applications.

Is this USB stick easy to set up?
Installation is quick and easy. Simply position the USB stick via the included dock or directly into a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port, install the included software and follow the on-screen prompts. After completing these steps you’re good to go. Alternatively, the USB stick features a WPS button for one touch pairing of your device to your WPS enabled router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last a wifi adapter that is properly awesome Using this with a Virgin superhub 2 and the difference in the furthest room in the house is awesome. Previously was at 3-5mbps with a small Edimax Nano adapter now receiving 59mbps (speedtest.net). Totally recommended - makes sense of wifi

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade Our old USB Wifi Dongle was well to say testing out at 2.3mb per second ( not good ) so upgraded to this one and 34.6mb per second, amazing improvement highly recommend this to all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great when it works. Great connection and speed when it works. Regularly disconnects on USB 3 though. This is a problem many seem to have looking at the support forums. Had to put it on USB 2 which keeps the connection but obviously limits the speed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This gadget seemed very simple to set up using the CD provided and my computer connected easily to my BT hub. No more trailing ethernet cables!

Will this only work with laptops or can games consoles be accomodated?

Asked by: Corkycon
It is unlikely to be compatible as this particular adapter requires specific drivers in order to operate. If your console does accept USB WiFi adapters, a compatibility list may be available from the manufacturer.
