The D-Link AC1200 Wi-Fi PCI Express Adapter with Wireless 802.11ac technology maximizes the speed and range of your Wi-Fi signal to significantly outperform Wireless N devices. The DWA-582 fits into any standard PCI Express slots – x1, x4, x8, or x16.
The AC1200 Wi-Fi PCI Express Adapter is powered by Wireless 802.11ac technology and uses two 4.5dBi external antennas to provide superior wireless reception in your home or office. This adapter is designed for use in larger homes and offices, or for users running multiple bandwidth-intensive applications. This adapter enables you to simultaneously make or receive Internet phone calls (VoIP), surf the Web, transfer files, and stream High-Definition (HD) media when connected to a Wireless AC Router or Modem Router. The DWA-582 supports WPA™ and WPA2™ encryption that allow you to connect securely to a wireless network.
The dual band AC technology in the DWA-582 supports selectable 2.4GHz or 5GHz wireless signals. This allows you to check e-mail and browse the Internet using the 2.4GHz band or stream HD movies and other media on the 5GHz band. The 5GHz wireless band is the best technology available for wirelessly streaming HD videos across your network. It achieves this by operating in a clear wireless band to help avoid interference that may slow down and limit the range of current wireless technologies like 802.11n. The DWA-582 is also backward compatible to 802.11 a/g/n, which means it can be used with existing wireless networks.
