- Connecting to a wireless network with the AE6000 using Wi-Fi Protected Setup™
The Wireless Mini USB Adapter AC580 Dual Band, AE6000 is capable of connecting to Linksys routers using Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS). You don’t have to enter the wireless password when connecting to wireless networks using WPS.
QUICK TIP: Dual band technology can operate in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio bands which helps minimize interference. Operation may be selectable (one band at a time) or simultaneous, doubling available wireless bandwidth and network capacity.
