The Asus USB-AC55 B1 is a wireless network adapter compatible with the fifth-generation 802.11AC WiFi networking standard. The AC standard supports both 2.4 and 5GHz frequencies, and when paired with a supporting router this can allow for up to 867Mbps of theoretical bandwidth (on the 5GHz spectrum).

As the name implies, the USB-AC55 uses a USB 3.0 connection and has dual antennas built into its casing. It also includes a USB extension cord with a base to plug the adapter into, allowing you to position it around for better reception if desired. In terms of backward compatibility, this adapter also works with earlier 802.11N, G, B, and A WiFi standards.
