†Maximum wired data throughput rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.3 specifications. Actual wired data throughput is not guaranteed and will vary as a result of environmental factors, Ethernet cable class, and computer performance.
‡To ensure compatibility, you may need to update the adapter’s drivers after an OS update. You can check the full list of the supported OS in the download center at tp-link.com/download-center.
Actual network speed may be limited by the rate of the product's Ethernet WAN or LAN port, the rate supported by the network cable, Internet service provider factors and other environmental conditions.
