The QWA-AC2600 is a 2.4/5 GHz Dual Band Dual Concurrent (DBDC), 4 x 4 Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), low-profile PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 x1 wireless adapter with two Qualcomm QCA9984 NICs that supports up to 2533 Mbps (800 Mbps for IEEE 802.11n (2.4 GHz) and 1733 Mbps for IEEE 802.11ac (5 GHz)). The QWA-AC2600 can be used as an access point or a base station with Ubuntu/Linux PCs or QNAP NAS. Combining the higher compatibility of 802.11n and faster connection of 802.11ac, the QWA-AC2600 enables versatile applications including wireless LANs in the workplace and Internet of Things (IoT) deployment in the field.

  • Utilizes the 802.11n and 802.11ac standards and offers speeds up to 2533 Mbps to deliver a low-latency, high-speed wireless experience.
  • Supports Dual Band Dual Concurrent (DBDC) for acting as an access point or a base station, adding more possibilities to your investment.
  • Supports 4 x 4 MU-MIMO technology for communicating with multiple clients with multiple signal lanes (spatial streams).
  • Comes with four 5 dBi detachable omni-directional high-gain antennas. The universal RP-SMA connectors enable antenna replacements for boosting signals and coverage.
  • Features an 80 cm high-frequency coaxial cable for extending the antennas' magnetic stand base for flexible deployment and coverage.
  • Has an active cooling module to ensure optimal heat dissipation. The fan will adjust its speed to match the temperature of the module.

The QWA-AC2600 is compatible with most PCIe-enabled QNAP NAS*. When used with the WirelessAP Station app** your NAS will evolve into a high-performance wireless access point that can be connected to from multiple devices. The QWA-AC2600 can also be used to extend your wireless network coverage. Combined with useful features (including DHCP and NAT) provided by the Network and Virtual Switch app, the QWA-AC2600 can be used for a variety of applications, delivering private, fast, low-latency and secure connectivity across your home and/or workplace.

Turn your Ubuntu/Linux PC or QNAP NAS into a wireless access point/base station
