Choose Better Connection Stability or Better Performance
WiFi relies on a harmony between your router, and the device connecting to it. In less populated areas be sure that your access point uses 40MHz channel widths (instead of 20MHz) to get the optimal performance from the adapter, otherwise performance will be halved. However, for more dense urban environments, it may be necessary to use 20MHz channel widths to compete with surrounding radio interference.
Due to being a single-band adapter, the adapter will only connect to 2.4GHz access points. 2.4GHz WiFi technology has the advantage of offering better range than those using 5GHz.
