867 Mbps - 2SS 5GHz 802.11ac (80MHz chan.),
300 Mbps - 2SS 2.4GHz 802.11n (40MHz chan.) = AC1200 class

Overview

The FCC test report indicates that the Edimax GR-478AC
and the ZyXEL X650 are also covered by the same FCC ID.

  • "1244-010000842-50Z" is silkscreened on the main board of the FCC EUT.
"1244-00000861-50Z_ES" is silkscreened on the wireless module of the same device.
  • "1244-010000892-50Z" is silkscreened on the main board of a production model.
"1244-00000861-50Z" is silkscreened on the wireless module of the same device.

This device is likely using RTL8367R as the Switch IC.

By default, the device broadcasts the SSID of edimax.setup on both bands.

  • The power adapter included with the device is likely a DVE
DSA-12PFA-05 FUS 050200 (100-240V 50/60Hz, 0.5A -> 5VDC 2A).
