Had to return this. Absolute piece of turd. Couldn't see the 5GHz network on my new TP-link 1200 router.
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.
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?
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
Everything in computing is obsolete if you can buy it, but it'll still keep working for another 10+ years probably....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?
