We are excited to announce the launch of Alfa's AWUS036AC 802.11ac Wi-Fi USB adapter, available today. Supplies will be very limited until July, so be sure to get yours now.

Alfa AWUS036AC brings long range 802.11ac technology to PCs at lower cost than competing 802.11ac products from brands like Netgear and Amped Wireless. It is a new long range dual antenna 867 Mbps Wi-Fi USB adapter compatible with Windows XP through Windows 8. It features two RP-SMA antenna ports, and two 5 dBi dual-band antennas. The antennas are detachable and can be upgraded.

AWUS036AC is capable of receiving and transmitting on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz bands. With 802.11ac standard routers, AWUS036AC can acheive throughput speeds up to 867 Mbps, almost three times that of the 802.11n maximum of 300 Mbps. This adapter is backward compatible with 802.11b and 802.11g networks, but will have limited speed with those networks. An 802.11ac router is required for the maximum throughput.

Each unit includes a USB docking base for optimal range placement. Stock will be limited as demand is expected to be high at this low price point.
