FRITZ! News - Faster WiFi for desktop PC & notebook


Faster WiFi for desktop PC & notebook

It doesn't always take big, expensive purchases to enjoy surfing on fast wireless LAN with the PC. Using FRITZ!WLAN Sticks you can establish wireless connections to the home network and the Internet quickly and easily for older notebooks or desktop computers without integrated wireless LAN function. Reach for the FRITZ!WLAN Stick AC 860 to start off wireless surfing in the fast lane. When used in combination with a FRITZ!Box that supports Wireless AC, it'll turn on turbo data transmission even on older hardware.


An alternative for new purchases as well

The multitude of open hotspots and the widespread use of mobile Internet show that wireless surfing is ubiquitous these days. This can lead to the impression that all new computers come with a wireless LAN module. However, this applies only for notebooks. Optional wireless LAN cards are available for desktop PCs, but Internet access via LAN cable is used more frequently. Now, the easiest way is to connect a WLAN Stick to the USB port of the computer.

Upgrade with Wireless AC

If you already own a router that supports Wireless AC (like the FRITZ!Box 7490), all devices connected to the FRITZ!WLAN Stick AC 860 benefit from the new wireless standard. This is the easiest way to improve the wireless performance of the computer in your home network and/or grant older computers wireless access compliant with current standards.
