It also has the new 802.11AC WiFi protocols and is dual band, 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz.
 
This makes it a good fit to add wireless to a desktop or upgrade a laptops WiFi.
 
The 5dBi antenna also helps to get a better signal from a distance.

    So I have a 2011 MacBook Pro that apparently had problems wit its logic board when it first came out. The computer has worked fine up until now because the WiFi has suddenly stopped working. I brought it to a Mac outlet and they said that the WiFi card on the logic board had finally broken. Now when click WiFi from my computer it simply says “No hardware installed” (being that it no longer works). Would this USB WiFi adapter allow the WiFi on my computer to work once more? Or does it require that the WiFi hardware on my computer also work in order to work with this?

      I have a 2016 Macbook Pro, and tried this dongle. It struggles to connect, taking 5-10 minutes. Once connected, it’s very solid, but the slow connection time drove me crazy, so I don’t use it anymore. (Yes, I’ve tried downloading the latest Mac driver) –Rich

    My laptop doesn’t have a cd-rom so I looked for a download of the driver CD. I didn’t have any success.
    I inserted the dongle/usb and it looks like the inamax ac1200 installed itself and is operating. I need to know if installing the driver cd would do anything important?
