This is a funny device. It claims to give you the output wifi AC with the theoretical maximum speed of 433mbps which is about 216mbps realistically. But the input that it can take is from the ethernet jack which only goes up to 100mbps. So the advertising that it supports AC with max speed of 433mbps is false. It only supports AC speed with max speed of 100mbps as limited by the ethernet jack. Beware when buying.

Just to clarify...if it's a wireless device talking to another wireless device..both on AC then it will get the full rated speed....otherwise you are correct but just about every cheap wireless ac device I've seen seems to use 100mb lan.

I think the point is to allow you to use the 5 GHz AC bands instead of 2.4 GHz since those tend to be more congested with wireless phones and other equipment running on Wireless N. Like you said, you are going to be limited by the 10/100 connection to the original N150/N300 router.

FWIW, this is the lowest price this has ever been by $10 I think.

Looks to be more reliable than some others I've purchased that tended to drop the connection after a while (I was using it to give a bluray player wireless ac connectivity vs it working on a router so it dropping the connection and not auto reconnecting till the power was pulled and reconnected defeated it's whole purpose. In for 1. Thanks!

Great price OP.

Answering own question: it's not seen in the product photos, but the specs mention that this device has a micro-USB power port. Obviously it needs electricity to operate, so it must come with a USB wall-wart for that purpose.

Great price.

Stupid question: how does this get electricity? I don't see any power jacks on the device in the photos. Is it POE?

Got one. I need to check out my two new laptops with AC and see if this improves my connectivity with my N router for every day use. Since I only have the lowest service the 100 limitation does not concern me for $10.

My concern is one enough or wait for a great deal on an AC router?

Could not rep OP as it was blocked.
