Download Driver Edimax EW-7711MAC AC450 USB Wireless. Again we present a complete analysis of the Wi-Fi Edimax EW-7711MAC AC450. This Wi-Fi adapter is specifically designed for portable Macs such as the Macbook Pro and Macbook Air because it uses the same plate design. The main features of this adapter Wi-Fi is that it is compatible with standard 802.11ac working only in the 5GHz band.
Edimax has designed this adapter Wi-Fi Edimax EW-7711MAC of small (nano size) and the latest wireless technology for use on computers that incorporate an internal Wi-Fi card that only works on the 2.4GHz band, this form can connect to your computer to any wireless network. With the external antenna 1T1R MIMO configuration, we can reach speeds of up to 433Mbps on the 5GHz band thanks to Wi-Fi AC, always get this speed as the router also has this feature. Therefore we have a Wi-Fi AC450 (single band). Do not know what this nomenclature? We recommend reading this: Nomenclature used by manufacturers.
Other features of this adapter Wi-Fi is that it supports all types of encryption as WPA, WPA2 and 802.1x also is compatible with Mac OS X from version 10.7 to 10.9. Although Edimax has designed this adapter Wi-Fi for Apple computers, has not been forgotten computers working under Windows so it is also compatible with Windows XP / Vista / 7/8 /8.1.
Wifi External analysis
This Adapter Edimax EW-size 7711MAC nano comes in a very small box. In the front are the main features of this adapter Wi-Fi, such that is specifically designed for Mac (Made for Mac) computers, also includes Wi-Fi AC450 to upgrade your Mac computer and access the 5GHz band to perform heavy tasks like HD video streaming. On the right side of the box also find reference to all these aspects, including having size "nano". At the rear of the box characteristics found in several languages. On the left side of the box are the main features, System Requirements (free USB port and have a compatible operating system) and also the package contents. The Wi-Fi Adapter Edimax EW-7711MAC is the smallest we've seen so far looks more like a Bluetooth adapter that nano size of a Wi-Fi adapter. In the front we find Edimax screen printing manufacturer, both the right side and the left only find the USB connector as 70% the size of this adapter from the USB connector. Right at the top of the adapter Wi-Fi have a small LED status, we find nothing, or WPS button as sacrifice performance, however can enable WPS from the operating system itself, as with the Wi cards -fi integrated.
Wifi Testing Laboratory
The laboratory tests, as all previous tests are Wireless. You have more information on our tests and hardware used in our Testbed, if it is the first time you see one of our analysis, we recommend you read it to find out how to get all values.
When checking if wireless speed and coverage falls short of the best, or whether on the contrary, is below has arrived. If this is the first time you see one of our analysis, we recommend reading our test bench Wireless. This Wi-Fi card we have tested in the router Edimax BR-6208AC AC750 and incorporating simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi AC technology, which will be the candidate ideal for performance testing of the Wi-Fi card Edimax. Being a Wi-Fi adapter that only works in the 5GHz band, then you can see the performance of other adapters Wi-Fi in the 5GHz band with the BR-6208AC router.
Wifi Conclusions Wireless
The yield obtained by this adapter Wi-Fi USB is remarkable if we look close access point Wi-Fi, however, as we move away performance drops dramatically, this is because Edimax has given more important to miniaturization that the performance itself, because as we have seen in other Wi-Fi own cards, with external antennas performance is much better. We believe Edimax should have sacrificed some size to incorporate a better antenna Wi-Fi, rather than as small and get less performance.
Wifi Built software
This Wi-Fi card does not incorporate any additional software from the official website we can download drivers for various operating systems including Windows is included. The installation wizard is Wi-Fi Edimax EW-7711MAC AC450 card will allow us to install the necessary drivers in a couple of steps.
Wi-Fi adapter very small and specifically aimed at users of Apple computers. Quick and easy setup, just install the drivers we can manage the adapter from the Windows network administrator. Compatible with all operating systems like Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
Wifi Final Conclusions
This Wi-Fi Edimax EW-7711MAC AC450 adapter is a computer with features midrange to be Wi-Fi AC450, ie, is only able to work in the 5GHz band so it will be the ideal companion for a laptop that has an integrated Wi-Fi card and only be able to work in 2.4GHz band, this way we can have dual band easily, quickly and fairly cheaply. This Wi-Fi card is conspicuous by its small size and be designed specifically for Macs since it uses the same color as Apple gives its laptops. Regarding the performance achieved in AP Nearby places get a good wireless performance, however, as we move away from AP and we add obstacles (floors and walls) yields fall dramatically for two reasons. The first reason is because the 5GHz band traverses the much worse than the 2.4GHz band obstacles, so the signal is rapidly attenuated, this happens on all computers. The second reason is because Edimax has designed this adapter Wi-Fi thinking about the size and not on performance, so it does not incorporate a high-gain antenna for greater reception sensitivity.
