Engenius EUB9801 Dual Band (2.4GHz and 5.0 GHz) Wireless N USB Adapter Dongle
New Non Retail Packaged
Engenius EUB9801 Dual Band Wireless N USB Adapter If you live in a wi-fi congested area, switching to the 5GHz band can make a dramatic difference to the performance and enjoyment of any wi-fi enabled service or device. This is because the 5GHz band is not as well supported by manufacturers, and fewer devices are enabled to use it.
Read most reviews and you will find that 5GHz transmisstion is usually faster over the short to medium range of your network, increasing performance, and this is magnified when the area is congested on the 2.4GHz band.
Most laptops only have the 2.4GHz wireless built in.
NOTE: you also need a router which operates on the 5GHz band to make use of all the features on this dongle.
NOTE: this dongle operates on either the 2.4GHz or the 5GHz band it can not operate on both simultaneously.
Powerful protection supports the latest industry standard wireless data encryption to protect your data and networking activity – all with the push of a button.
