This week, Netgear announced the Nighthawk AXE3000 USB 3.0 adapter, which allows you to easily upgrade any PC or laptop with faster Wi-Fi 6E connectivity. While many computers already have Wi-Fi 6, many don’t support the latest 6E standard that offers improved performance.

Wi-Fi 6E is a significant wireless internet upgrade for your home. Still, you’ll need a Wi-Fi 6E router first to take advantage of the faster speeds and lower interference offered by the Nighthawk AXE3000 (A8000) adapter.

The dongle easily connects to your PC through any USB 3.0 port, then provides access to fast 6E speeds thanks to a dedicated 6 GHz band that delivers speeds of up to 1,200 Mbps. Netgear also provides an extension cable and cradle, allowing greater access to USB ports so owners can place the dongle in the best location to improve reception.

Unsurprisingly, the new Netgear Nighthawk Wi-Fi 6E adapter is backward compatible with the Wi-Fi 6, 5GHz, and 2.4GHz bands, but we’re assuming you won’t need it if you have a newer 6E router.

For those unaware, the latest 6E standard improves on existing Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) with improved speeds, lower latency, and better performance over 6 GHz. It also improves network congestion and prevents interference from other more powerful technologies. ancient.

Those looking for a Wi-Fi 6E router can consider Netgear’s Nighthawk or even the Orbi Wi-Fi 6E Mesh system. If you already have a new router and want those fast speeds on your PC, grab the Nighthawk A8000 for $89 from the link below. It will start shipping on October 4.
