TP-LINK Canada Inc. today announced the TP-LINK® Archer T4U - AC1200 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter - offering consumers an easy upgrade path for existing laptops and desktop computers to the superior wireless performance of 802.11ac. The Archer T4U is designed with security in mind: easy wireless security encryption at a push of the built-in WPS button; and WPA/WPA2 encryptions provide a home wireless network with active defense against security threats.

The Archer T4U adapter is backward compatible with previous generation 802.11a/b/g/n wireless standards to help fend off product obsolescence. Consumers will enjoy incredibly fast Wi-Fi speeds and improved connectivity, without having to invest in new computer equipment.

With 867Mbps wireless speeds over the crystal clear 5GHz band or 300Mbps over the 2.4GHz band for a total of 1.2Gps, the Archer T4U is ideal for lag-free HD streaming, online gaming and other bandwidth-intensive tasks. When combined with an 802.11ac router, the dual band performance of the Archer T4U boosts Wi-Fi speeds and achieves maximum throughput and minimal interference.

Consumers will also benefit from the new adapter's USB 3.0 port (up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0), meeting the increasing demands of today's high bandwidth applications.

Easy Setup

Simply plug in the Archer T4U into the USB port of a laptop or desktop computer; the adapter can be easily configured with the bundled wireless utility for a high-speed 11AC network. Additionally, the Archer 4TU includes a one meter USB 3.0 extension cable for flexible positioning when connecting the device to a computer system.
