It’s no earth-shattering news here, but if you want to add Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) to a computer quickly, there are now more options. TP-Link unveiled just three new USB Wi-Fi adapters, including the Archer T3U, Archer T2U Nano, and Archer T2U Plus.

All of them are tiny and designed to plug right into a USB port – preferably a USB 3.0 or faster port though they will work with a USB 2.0 port, too.

The fastest of the bunch is the Archer T3U AC1300 Mini Wireless MU-MIMO USB adapter which features Wave 2 2×2 Wi-Fi 5 and capable of up to 867Mbps on the 5GHz or 400Mbps on the 2.4GHz. It’s smaller than most thumb drives.

Next is the Archer T2U Nano AC600 Nano Wireless USB Adapter, which is even smaller. But it’s also slower. Sporting a single stream setup, the adapter can deliver to 433Mbps on the 5GHz or up to 200Mbps on the 2.4GHz.

And finally, the Archer T2U Plus AC600 High Gain Wireless Dual Band USB adapter is the desktop version of the Archer T2U. It has a built-in high-gain antenna and therefore is physically the largest among the three. Nonetheless, it has the same speed grade as the T2U but has a better range.

The Archer T3U, T2U, and T2U Plus are now the suggested price of $25, $18, and $20, respectively. Their street prices might be different, however.
