Put fast and compatible dual band internet performance in the palm of your hand with the powerful USB-N53 wireless adapter. Better than most built-in notebook Wi-Fi, other external adapters, and rivaling the speed of many dedicated PCI Express cards, this wireless adapter features an intuitive, easy-to-use interface to get the best signal strength and customize settings. Setup is also made easy with plug-and-play, CD-free installation. Other adapters make you choose from either 2.4GHz or 5GHz, so if you want fast speed of the 5GHz stream you have to sacrifice the compatibility that the 2.4GHz offers. But the USB-N53 dual-band capability allows for concurrent, simultaneously 2.4GHz and 5GHz streams to give you the best of both worlds. Beautiful, light, and equipped with ASUS' exclusive networking features, the USB-N53 eliminates the need for a PCIe network card or on-board Wi-Fi only requiring a single free USB port. With the included mini USB extension cord, adjust the antenna to receive the strongest signal.

This wireless adapter lets you wireless connect other devices to it as an Internet access point with the Software AP. The graphical user interface, EZ UI, centralizes all wireless information into one place with useful real-time information on signal strength and data throughput. The WPS Push Button simplifies secure connections with a single push of a button that detects even hidden routers and internet access points and prompts for passcode access. Additionally, the WPS push button effortlessly syncs to another device with the USB-N53 if both buttons are pressed together.

  • newegg Flexible Dual-Band Connection The ASUS USB-N53 is a wireless-N dual-band adapter allowing you to connect to 2.4GHz for basic Internet applications or 5GHz for lag-free streaming and high performance networking (with speeds up to 300Mbps) through dual-band wireless router.
  • newegg Software AP USB-N53 is not only a USB wireless adapter, but also a small AP. Its Software AP function can easily turn your computer into a wireless access point.
  • newegg USB Extension cable Included Included USB extension cable lets you easily adjust the antenna for the best signal strength.

5 out of 5 eggsRefurbished: ASUS USB-N53 Dual Band 2.4/5.0GHz 300Mbs Adapter

Pros: -- Nice design and Blue lighting
-- Speeds are up to 300 Mbps, but averages 150-160 Mbps, which is pretty decent. Spikes to 300 Mbps frequently.
-- Very easy to use GUI

Cons: -- Refurbished; you are taking a chance on a low-price product
-- A bit huge for an USB adaptor

Other Thoughts: -- I usually never buy refurbished products, but this product was an Asus product. Asus makes quality products, so I took a chance and paid the $14 USD. It worked out. The product runs the speeds it stated and it looks used, but in excellent shape with no scratches. Just an opened bag of the extended USB wire. The adapter itself was wrapped in an anti-static bag.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: I bought this to upgrade my N-15 after using for for over a year. Shipping was fast as usual and I'm very happy. Installation was easy and worked as it should. I haven't had any loss of signal so far. I like the blue light. It matches with my fans blue light, very cool.

Cons: Just one. I'm unable to get anywhere near stated 300mps data transfer for some reason. Currently I'm maxed out at 54mps. Even with 54mps I can stream movies, surf net, and play mmo all right but I still want faster mps.
