Alfa Tube-UAC2 is a new long range outdoor 802.11ac dual band Wi-Fi USB adapter/client for Microsoft Windows computers. It is great for marine and RV use.
This is a special kit which includes Alfa Tube-UAC2 and Alfa AOA-2458-79AM 9 dBi omni directional N-male antenna which connects directly to the Tube.
In 2019, the number of RV parks and public networks offering 5 Ghz Wi-Fi has increased, and there are advantages of connecting to the less-trafficked 5 Ghz band. With Alfa Tube-UAC2 9 dBi antenna combo, you can get a range boost to both 2.4 and 5 GHz networks. Note that because of FCC power restrictions on dual band radios, our long range single band USB clients like Alfa Tube-U(N) may get stronger signal to 2.4 Ghz networks. If you are thinking about upgrading, the Tube-UAC2 offers faster connections to 802.11ac and 5 Ghz networks but may have lesser signal to 2.4 Ghz networks compared to Tube-U(N).
This comes with the AOA-2458-79AM antenna.
This is a single PC range extender that boosts the WiFi just to the PC to which it is connected. If you have Microsoft Windows 10, you can use the Mobile Hotspot feature to share the reception out over your PC’s built-in WiFi card as your own private hotspot (requires your PC have an internal WiFi card inside).
Tube-UAC2 is light-weight and easy to mount (it is 4.5 ounces and just over 6.5 inches tall). Simply use the two included mounting ties to fasten it to almost any type of infrastructure.
Alfa Tube-UAC2 easily fastens to your boat or RV, or an outdoor pole or post. It has weatherproof casing and it comes with a special shielded 5 meter (16 feet) USB cable that is designed to prevent against power loss. This allows you to mount this item further away from where you will be using your computer.
