If you are using an 802.11AC compatible router and want to utilize the fast connection, you may want to try one of these:

..and then install the driver from here:

I bought one for my laptop to speed up file transfer when copying huge files from my desktop. :)
If you're looking for a greener Linux pasture, you won't find any that is greener than Linux Mint. ;)
