Review EDUP 802.11AC Dual Band AC600 WiFi USB Adapter

The EDUP AC600 is a Dual Band 802.11ac WiFi adapter that works in both the 2.4Ghz and 5GHz frequencies.

802.11AC is currently the fastest WiFi protocol and works in the 5GHz band.

The 2.4Ghz band is for legacy devices and works with the older Wireless-N protocol.

Summary
The EDUP 802.11AC dual band USB WiFi adapter is a good unit that gave good wireless speed results.

Windows 10 had no problems automatically installing the Driver. There is a CD with the Driver if there is a problem.

It would be a good fit for a Desktop PC needing wireless or a laptop with a bad WiFi card or needing an upgrade.

I am still testing the unit so far with good results and will update if anything changes.

As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
