Any cheap usb-ethernet adapters going?
This is a great deal. 5GHz and High Quailty.....Amazon Delivered @ under £7
This will future proof you until 2020 when the new 802.11ax standard form will superseed the 802.11ac standard.
I had this on my camelcamel tracker, think it was £13-£14 a few weeks ago. I guess another company lowered their price and amazon zombie matched it?
Strange that it doesn't utilise 2.4ghz as well..

802.11ac is 5GHz band only.

2.4GHz support for older standards would require an extra radio, and there's not much room in a USB plug...

Yeah, turning the 2.4 off so my lazy Son can do something worthwhile (doubt it) and I can still run my business.

Everything in computing is obsolete if you can buy it, but it'll still keep working for another 10+ years probably.... we've had 802.11b for 18 years or so and only recently is it being dropped from some devices. plus this is £7 so who really cares if it lasts a couple years only?

Doesn't mean as soon as it hits 2020 it's going to become obsolete. In fact, not many of us will upgrade everything in our homes and neither will businesses so I think this will last quite a while, and even if we upgrade in future... it will likely still be backwards compatible with this adapter so it won't go to waste
Can I plug this into my phone charger and turn my new WIFI enabled charger into a wireless charger?

Can I plug this into a non WIFI enabled printer and make it a WIFI printer?

But it would be the year that the transitioning effect will occur. With this standard being working on both 2.4GHZ & 5GHZ bands with the same speed benefits, it will be likely companies would take up the ax over the ac standard.
Had to return this. Absolute piece of turd. Couldn't see the 5GHz network on my new TP-link 1200 router.
