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.
