My laptop can connect to my home network using 802.11ac just fine.
This is despite the fact that the product claims support for 802.11ac:
USB 2.0 Type A Wi-Fi dual band adapter supports 802.11n & 802.11ac maximum wireless speed up to 300Mbps on 2.4GHz band or up to 866Mbps on 5GHz band
This happens even if I restrict the Wireless Mode to 802.11ac in Device Manager.
I don't understand what the reason is. Why would this happen?
