Additional Features

IMPORTANT: The Key to RadioLabs successful USB Wifi card designs and why no other company in the industry can achieve the high level of power and rock solid receiver performance, is because of thermal energy transfer design.

To increase the output power, increases the chipset’s heat. Some of the amplification process in wifi amplifiers output, produces heat. This heat builds up FAST. Our adapters to get slightly warm to the touch, but imagine what a poor processor or chipset would do if you didn’t put a heat sink on it? This is what happens to our competition’s cards, and why we get so many people ordering our high performance wifi cards.. because quite simple.. they work!

You will see other cards offered by other companies, listing large power output figures. They will achieve some performance for a small amount of time, from 10-15 minutes, then a clamping effect takes place, and the performance of both the chipset, and the power amplifier takes place, and the connection drops, or becomes so weak and unstable, the card’s performance is no greater than an ordinary low-power card. No other wifi card in the industry can achieve the same level of performance, because of one thing. Their designs trap the heat inside of the card’s chassis, causing thermal runaway and shutdown. Unless the card you are buying is aluminum, and careful attention to the design is factored in, thermal transfer effect is taking place and your card’s performance will gradually shut down within 5-15 minutes.

USB WiFi Adapter Features:

  • Automatic gain control to minimize the signal distortion on all access points
  • Ultra-thin, CNC aluminum chassis, changes the look and feel of all our previous High Power cards. Thin aluminum produces cooling and looks great!
  • High Power transmit level, 1000mW on 802.11A/B/G/N and AC!! (30dBm) (Does not include antenna gain)
  • 5-Volt power supplied via USB PC connector
  • Industry standard USB connector. Works with USB 2.0 and new 3.0 Standard
  • 9 5/8″ antenna length/wireless card combination
  • 3′ USB cable included
  • Software CD included

  1. Alex V

    This is a Thank you note, for the outstanding technical support your company provides.
    I have used your Wave Magnum, and now the Wave Stealth AC and I am very happy.
    During the installation, I had a problem with my computer not recognizing the driver.
    Your support was outstanding. I will recommend your company to my friends and to all the club members at the CBYC Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club in San Pedro Ca. Thanks!

    WOW! Just WOW! My computer has the latest built-in Generation Wi-Fi Intel adapter, and from my garage, the signal was barely enough to get 5 Mbps download and a miserable 1 Mbps in upload. I disabled it and configured this beast and now I reach 27 Mbps download and 29 Mbps upload! IMPRESSIVE!

  3. ihab.abedrabbo (verified owner)

    One thing I have noticed, and I don’t know if I am doing something wrong or not, but this adapter is projected for long-range in mind and not speed. If I go home in front of the wireless router, my internal Intel Wi-Fi gives me a throughput of almost 800/500 Mbps, instead this Realtek beast give me 400/300 Mbps. Still a very good wireless card, but when it comes to long range, this beast is unbeatable. Testing more configurations and antenna orientation, I managed to get 30/50 Mbps in my garage with this beast, while my internal Intel never reached such values.

      Hello Ihab! Thank you again for the wonderful review! That particular USB Card, is meant for yes, long distance. The Wireless speed on it, is WiFi-5, which is the best technology for improved distance, fall-back, tx beamforming, which is a specific way the antennas will work together, to “Steer” the signal and add additional gain, at the source of WiFi.
      Wireless Speeds, are faster than you’d realize, but the technology does have a cap to it of approximately 1/2 of the wireless speed, but with improved range. Also, one word “LATENCY“, is the most important factor to consider, especially for the fastest transmit and receive packet for Gaming, voice over IP, Video, and all other forms of rapid packet transfer. Our latency is as fast as any current technology will achieve, until you get into very high dollar stuff. The internal card and router you are using, is likely using a slightly different wifi technology, that will push faster packets. But, you should be able to achieve 1/2 of 867mbps on the 5-6 GHz band.
      The 2.4 GHz band, you will not achieve speeds faster than 300mbps. It is an older technology, narrow bandwidth and if you’re on 2.4 ghz, then expect to achieve slower speeds.

      99% of average consumers in the broadband industry, use no greater than 50-65 Mbps, and a very rare occassion of 100mbps for a hungry data household.
      To us, range, is 10x more important than speed. Reliability and zero drops is crucial. But please check to ensure which band you are connected to on your home router, if you are doing speed tests. 2.4 is just not capable of speeds greater than 100-150 mbps.
      Also, Please NOTE: It is critical if you are doing speed tests, to ensure your router is in wide band, HT40 on 2.4, or HT80 or even greater MiMo on the 5 ghz band. Our High Power, long range WiFi Card, is 2×2 MiMo, designed for maximum range, and speeds greater than most people need, except for massive internal Local Area Network Data Dumps, between say two computers for backups, etc.
