ALFA AWUS036ACM brings dual antenna 802.11ac technology to PCs at an affordable cost. It is a new dual antenna 867 Mbps Wi-Fi USB adapter compatible with Windows XP through Windows 10. It features two RP-SMA antenna ports, and two 5 dBi dual-band antennas. The antennas are detachable and can be upgraded.

This product is very similar to ALFA AWUS036AC but it has the Mediatek MT7612U chipset.

AWUS036ACM is capable of receiving and transmitting on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. With 802.11ac standard routers, AWUS036AC can achieve throughput speeds up to 867 Mbps. This adapter is backward compatible with 802.11g and 802.11n networks, but an 802.11ac router is required for the maximum throughput.

This is brand new in retail box and includes the adapter, two 5 dBi dual-band antennas, driver CD.

ALFA AWUS036ACM 802.11ac Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz WiFi USB Adapter


Got great help from Rokland on what adapter is best for me and a couple questions I had on the install too! And fast responses on top or if...
Will definitely be shopping there again!

Works with two old Macbook Pros with Linux installed

After reviewing Github I decided to buy the Alfa. I have a 2007 MBP and a 2017 MBP where the wifi cards would not work with Linux. After plugging the Alfa into the MBPs both computer recognized the Alpha in Linux. I have 5 Ghz wifi and everything worked perfectly. No drivers to install as the Alpha was recognized by Ubuntu 22 and Ubunta Mate in the old 2007. The 2017 is dual booted with MacOS and Ubuntu. Both computers are in the basement den approximately 100 feet from the router.


Awesome. Product and seller AA++

Decent USB Adapter

I use wifi adapters to connect to hotspot signals for Internet. This adapter is good for short- and mid-range signals but not for longest range. It does well for what it's suited for.
