Netis WF2561 Wireless AC1200 500mW High Power USB Adapter
If you're looking for a USB wireless adapter that’s a bit more stationary, then give this one a good look. While somewhat portable, the very large antennas on this pick make it a bit less convenient than other models which fit into your pocket. This model uses a USB 3.0 connection for optimal transfer speeds, includes support for Wireless-AC1200 standards, as well as backwards compatibility for Wireless-N and earlier networks.
The adapter itself is fairly small and can connect directly into a USB port, though the large antennas can make it too heavy to easily sit in the back of a computer tower. This is offset by a USB cord and docking station that you can use to set the adapter in a more remote location to better pick up your wireless signal. The cradle is designed well and provides better support for the large antennas which makes this a great option for a more stationary setup. This high-power model is great if you need to pick up a wireless signal over a fairly long range as it has a boosted transmit signal so you can get data to and from wireless networks more effectively than with many other models.
