If you have an older PC or some industrial device that runs Windows and need to connect to a faster 802.11 AC Wi-Fi network, the NETGEAR AC1200 USB WiFi Adapter is a convenient option that can connect to a USB Type-A port on your device.
The dual band NETGEAR AC1200 USB WiFi Adapter enables your device to connect wirelessly at the speed of up to 1200 Mbps. The USB adapter can support USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 2.0 connections as well as 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi networks.
The NETGEAR AC1200 USB WiFi Adapter also includes a WPS button that can makes it easier to set up with a WPS enabled router.
Instead of inserting directly into your PC, you can use the desktop dock that comes with the NETGEAR AC1200 USB WiFi Adapter. Just connect the USB cable of the dock to a USB port on your PC while placing the USB adapter on the dock.
The installation CD provides the Windows drivers and NETGEAR Genie App needed to install and set up the NETGEAR AC1200 USB WiFi Adapter. The NETGEAR Genie can also be used to monitor any Wi-Fi network you are connected to as well as control NETGEAR Wi-Fi routers. If your device doesn't already have an Internet connection and you don't have a DVD/CD-ROM player, you'll need to purchase an external USB DVD/CD-ROM player.
