BrosTrend 1200Mbps USB WiFi Network Adapter for Laptop, Desktop PC of Windows 10/8.1/8/7/XP, USB 3.0, AC1200 Dual Band 5GHz 867Mbps + 2.4GHz 300Mbps
The BrosTrend AC1 is a good WiFi adapter that gave good results for portability, compatibility, and speed.
It is a 802.11ac dual band adapter so it will work in most any WiFi network new or old.
There is faster WiFi-6 adapters that may work better but for the price it works very well.
Compatibility is also very good with it able to work with most any version of Windows. During testing Windows 10 found the drivers automatically by simply plugging it in.
The speed results for the 5GHz band was very good.
The speed results on the 2.4Ghz band was lacking a bit, but with most now using the new 5Ghz 802.11ac band this will likely not be a problem.
I am still testing the adapter so far with good results and will update if anything changes.
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
