Alfa AWUS036AC- Dual Antenna 867 Mbps 802.11ac Wi-Fi Adapter
Alfa AWUS036AC brings long range 802.11ac technology to PCs at an affordable cost. It is a new long range dual antenna 867 Mbps Wi-Fi USB adapter compatible with Windows XP through Windows 8. It features two RP-SMA antenna ports, and two 5 dBi dual-band antennas. The antennas are detachable and can be upgraded.
AWUS036AC is capable of receiving and transmitting on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz bands. With 802.11ac standard routers, AWUS036AC can acheive throughput speeds up to 867 Mbps, almost three times that of the 802.11n maximum of 300 Mbps. This adapter is backward compatible with 802.11b and 802.11g networks, but will have limited speed with those networks. An 802.11ac router is required for the maximum throughput.
The dual antennas and high receive sensitivity also allow it to pick up Wi-Fi signals from up to 2 times the distance of newer internal 802.11ac Wi-Fi cards shipping inside today's laptops. This is brand new in retail box and includes the adapter, two 5 dBi dual-band antennas, driver CD, and USB docking base. We buy direct from Alfa and are an authorized retailer of Alfa products. Check directly with Alfa to verify you are getting a 100% genuine Alfa adapter.
Special USB dock allows for optimal range placement
This adapter can connect directly to a USB port. A USB 3.0 port is required for the maximum 867 Mpbs connection speed. The included dock can be used to put the adapter in better placement for increased range. Using this device with our without the dock on older computers that do not have USB 3 ports will limit speed to 480 Mbps.
compatible with windows xp, vista, windows 7, 8
It will work with any computer that has an available USB port and Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10 (Win10 driver also available via this download here.) In April of 2017 Kali Linux has announced packet injection is now supported in Kali 2017.1 release. Kali Linux users should refer to Kali forums for technical support. This works on Microsoft Surface Pro tablets running Windows 8 (requires driver download) but does NOT work with Windows Surface RT tablets or other tablets/laptops running Microsoft Surface RT, which looks like Windows 8 but is actually a locked down version of Windows that does not support 3rd party drivers.
