Makita’s new adapter, which is available in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, will allow users to connect their home network devices (TVs, Blu-ray players) to the Internet without having to purchase additional equipment or buy expensive Wi-Fi routers.
The adapter supports 802.11n/ac technology with MU-MIMO technology, allowing up to four separate wireless connections from one device.
It supports up to five simultaneous connections at once.
Its two antennas are designed to provide better coverage than older adapters, while still being small enough to fit into most rooms.
Mentioned above: 1.5 GHz band; 2.4 GHz band; 5 GHz band.

In addition to its features, the adapter comes with a free software package called “ConnectWise” that allows users to control all aspects of their network connection using a simple web interface. ConnectWise provides advanced features such as firewall rules and DHCP server management. It also allows users to monitor all connected devices, giving them the ability to control their smart home using a single application.
An earlier version of this software was designed for use with another Makita product, the Connectivity Device (MB 2012). However, it has been redeveloped from the ground up, expanding its feature set while improving performance and usability. Having an integrated development cycle allowed the engineers to create a software platform that will be able to grow and adapt over time.
In addition to the software and device itself, Makita has also released a new line of “Smart Accessories” that can be easily connected to the adapter. This allows users to take full advantage of what the WUT02U has to offer. The first Smart Accessory is a voice-controlled speaker module called the “Smart Speakers”, which allows users to connect an Amazon Alexa or Google Home device directly to their home network.
