Inevitably, devices and gadgets become obsolete over time. Laptops and desktops may not keep up with the current speeds of networks available through wireless access points. Even worse, a time may come that our devices may not be able to access them at all. Fortunately, advancements in technology can come up for these problems. Now, wireless N networks and wireless access points can be easily accessed by your device, as long as a network is available. And with TRENDnet introducing its new wireless adapter, your device will be able to function efficiently in accord with changing times.

It also has a port which has the capacity to maintain high speed wireless transmissions to a Windows-based computer device.

Its adapter likewise prioritizes network connections and stores multiple network settings for the convenience of its users. It also has a Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button which easily connects the adapter to a wireless network with just the touch of the WPS button.
