802.11ac Truly Realized with USB 3.0

USB 3.0 is up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 and specifies a maximum transmission speed of up to 5Gbps. Providing quicker data transmission times, and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 (which specifies a maximum speed of 480Mbps), USB 3.0 is the new standard in connectivity - enabling devices to achieve the superfast speeds which 802.11ac can provide.

World's Fastest USB Wi-Fi Adapter The Edimax EW-7822UAC is the next generation of Wi-Fi adapter, compatible with the draft 802.11ac standard and delivering speeds of up to 867Mbps at 5GHz - almost three times as fast as 802.11n. The EW-7822AC is the first adapter of its kind to offer 802.11ac speeds together with USB 3.0 connectivity. Upgrade PC's and notebooks to super high speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi and enjoy streaming video and data at speeds of up to 867Mbps.
