Backward Compatible
While the Wireless AC1000 Dual Band USB Adapter delivers blazing fast AC speed to your laptop or desktop computer, it’s also backward compatible with older Wi-Fi routers and devices – no updates or adapters necessary.

Maximize your AC Performance
While your new Wireless AC adapter delivers the latest and the greatest in wireless performance to your laptop and desktop computers, you can further optimize your home network's performance by upgrading your current router to one of D-Link's Wireless AC Cloud routers.
