TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces, from 2013 International CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, the AC1200 Dual Band Wireless USB 3.0 Adapter, model TEW-805UB-The first wireless adapter with a USB 3.0 port to maintain ultimate performance wireless transmissions to your Windows® based laptop or desktop computer.
TRENDnet's dual band TEW-805UB can connect to two different wireless networks-a Wireless AC network for the fastest wireless available today and a Wireless N network to connect to common Wireless N routers. The TEW-805UB supports Wireless AC speeds of up to 867 Mbps and Wireless N speeds of up to 300 Mbps. This adapter can also connect to older legacy Wireless G networks.
An intuitive installation process takes less than five minutes. A convenient adapter utility stores multiple network passwords and prioritizes network connections. A Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button connects the adapter to a wireless network at the touch of the button. This compact adapter is powered by the computer.
"The use of the first ever USB 3.0 port with our AC1200 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter simply makes sense," stated Zak Wood, director of global marketing for TRENDnet. "The TEW-805UB's USB port will not bottleneck record Wireless AC speeds realized by the adapter."
