Linksys have released their latest USB adapter – to give it’s full title – the Linksys WUSB6300 AC1200. The WUSB6300 uses the latest and greatest 802.11ac wireless standard. As most wireless devices out there still use the older Wireless N standard, they don’t have the ability to connect to newer 802.11ac routers or access points.
In order to reap the full benefits that Wireless AC can give, a Wireless AC adapter can be used to upgrade your device. The Linksys WUSB6300 comes in the form of USB 3.0.
A full list of features, technical specifications, and a link to customer reviews are below.
Linksys WUSB6300 AC1200 Features
Move into the next generation – Wireless 802.11ac. Upgrade you laptop or PC to use the latest Wireless AC routers and Access Points that are becoming ever popular today. Faster speeds and a better, smoother experience on the Internet or on local networks, whether it be gaming, VoIP, HD streaming across the network. Upgrading from traditional Wireless N to AC will help to make your wireless networking more enjoyable, functional, and productive.
Most wireless adapters today are USB 2.0. This can degrade performance because USB 2.0 can only support theoretical rates of up to 400Mbps. The Linksys WUSB6300 is USB 3.0, so with theoretical rates of up to 4Gbps you know that this adapter will not be the bottleneck in your wireless network.
Dual Band ‘on a stick’
The Linksys WUSB6300 AC1200 has dual band functionality so you can connect to Wireless N 2.4GHz networks as well as 5GHz networks. This gives you the flexibility to connect to older and newer networks without fear of being disconnected.
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
The WUSB6300 has a WPS button, making it easy to pair with WPS compatible routers. Just press the button on your wireless router and the WUSB6300 and you have a newly connected device.
Play games and stream video at the same time. The Linksys WUSB6300 lets you run multiple bandwidth intensive tasks at the same time whilst limiting performance.
