5Gbps max port speed with 867Mbps max network transfer speed, the very definition of "utterly pointless". Yes, I know USB 2.0 maxes out at 480Mbps, but I really doubt any consumers will ever achieve that speed on wireless, let alone 867Mbps. Yay for theoretical speeds.

If I am not mistaken, this product has been launched quite some time ago.
