Thanks to 2x2 MIMO, the entire transmission speed is supported in each case with correspondingly equipped receivers. Despite this improved bandwidth and signal coverage, the USB-AC54 B1 is fully backwards compatible with older wireless routers, but it is recommended that you use an appropriate ASUS AC router to maximize the full 867 Mbps. In addition, the ASUS USB-AC54 thrilled with the support of high-speed USB 3.0, which delays thanks to the USB interface should not be expected. Not only the technology is outstanding, the Black Diamond case design is also convincing.
The extremely fast standard is almost exhausted by the USB-AC54 B1. The WLAN Stick uses the fifth-generation 802.11ac chipset to achieve tremendous speeds in the 5 GHz frequency band. 256QAM technology increases the wireless N data transfer rate from 300 Mbps to 400 Mbps, achieving 33% faster performance. This makes it an incredible three times faster than the high-end 802.11n standard adapters. With the dual-band technology of the ASUS USB-AC54 B1, content can be transferred via WLAN. The stick offers the possibility of directing resource-intensive files, such as high-resolution films, to the 5 GHz AC-WLAN band. The advantage is that the 5 GHz band is hardly subject to interference.
