Instant Upgrade to WiFi 6

The WiFi 6 standard delivers efficient connectivity that meets the demands of the growing number of connected personal and IoT devices. The USB-AX56 USB adapter gives your laptop or PC an instant plug-and-play upgrade to WiFi 6.





Ultrafast WiFi Speed

USB-AX56 is a 2x2 dual-band WiFi 6 client that lets you take full advantage of WiFi 6 routers. It offers a total wireless bandwidth of up to 1800 Mbps — 574 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and 1201 Mbps on the 5 GHz band. That makes USB-AX56 up to 1.5X faster than a WiFi 5 client!

* Comparing the speed of 2x2 802.11ax on 5 GHz / 80 MHz channels with 1024QAM modulation to speed of 2x2 802.11ac on 5 GHz / 80 MHz channels with 256QAM modulation.





4X More Efficient Connections

OFDMA and MU-MIMO greatly increase connection efficiency, giving improved network capacity.

* A WiFi 6-compatible router is required to enjoy all the benefits of the WiFi 6 standard.





80% Longer Range
 
OFDMA divides frequency channels into smaller sub-channels, which means they can travel further.
 
**Refers to uplink OFDMA performance.





7X Better Power Savings
 
Target Wake Time allows devices to sleep when they are not active, reducing power consumption.
 
***Compared to WiFi 5. Power savings vary according to the scenario.





Beamforming Boosts WiFi Range

With beamforming, your router can locate USB-AX56 in order to direct a stronger signal in the direction of your device. Beamforming improves signal strength and hence gives the device better range.
 




Enhanced WPA3 Network Security

The successor to the well-established WPA2 protocol, WPA3 adds new features that simplify WiFi security, while making your connections much more secure.




 
Plug-And-Play

USB-AX56 can be plugged easily into laptops or PCs with a USB port to give it full WiFi 6 speed capabilities. USB-AX56 supports a wide variety of operating systems, including Windows 10/8.1/8/7 and Linux, making it the perfect choice for any laptop or PC.
