Asus PCE-AC68 Dual Band AC1900 PCI Wireless Adapter

Asus PCE-AC68 Dual Band AC1900 PCI Wireless Adapter
The ASUS PCE-AC68 dual band AC1900 PCI wireless adapter is a new 802.11ac Wi-Fi PCI Express adapter which upgrades your desktop from tangle-some Ethernet cables to carefree industry-leading 802.11ac at up to 1.3Gbps. Plus, the stylish external magnetized antenna base gives you more flexibility in adjusting antenna placement to get the best signal reception quality possible.

Broadcom TurboQAM™ hardware integrated on the PCE-AC68 brings the speed benefits of next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. At 600Mbit/s and 1.3Gbit/s respectively, they turn the PCE-AC68 into a formidable AC1900 wireless adapter, providing speeds that cannot be bettered by generic wireless adapters. Connect the PCE-AC68 to ASUS networks to attain the very highest possible Wi-Fi speeds

ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless device connectivity using precise directional signal amplification for extended coverage, increased data-throughput speed, and enhanced stability. Wi-Fi-connection strength varies based on your environment, so the PCE-AC68 intelligently detects wireless router locations and ‘shapes’ data transmissions using three external antennas and high-powered beam-packing — assuring the fastest stable connection.

Powerful two-way transmission and a signal-boosting high-gain design give the PCE-AC66 improved two-way transmission that extends Wi-Fi range and coverage by up to 150% compared to generic client devices. This extended reach means the elimination of dead spots at any location, offering fast and uninterrupted HD streaming and smooth multiplayer gaming wherever you may be.

Lastly, the added heatsink uses highly-conductive aluminum to remove heat from the chipset, ensuring greater reliability for non-stop operation. Lower temperatures translate into a more stable device in all climate conditions, even during hot summers, and greater stability means more consistent connectivity and longer product lifespan.

This works perfect Crackoder May 30, 2014
I'm loving this. I'm using it with a Linksys AC1900, and it is amazing, my LAN speed have improved a lot with this upgrade, this is a very nice product

I LOVE THIS ASUS WIFI ADAPTER K. Paik May 3, 2015
I previously used a powerline and experienced constant dc's ( on top of 25 mbps dl max when I have 100 mbps internet! :( ) So I figured I should buy this and see how well it performs.

Well...

I LOVE THIS ASUS WIFI ADAPTER!!! <3

I no longer experience random dc's and I get 95+ mbps dl at all times! My room also have constant 4 out of 5 bar signal strength on 5GHz. :)

Highly recommended!

Works great on win 10 with right driver. Chris Grisdale October 18, 2015
Works great once the driver is sorted out. Beta win 10 driver would not connect to internet on 5GHz but connected just fine on 2.5GHz. I tried changing the channels on my router with no luck. So I downloaded the older version and every thing was golden. Connected at 5GHz and I downloaded 10 gig on steam with no hiccups. Have a WRT1900 Linksys router I just needed a good adapter to go with it.

good, but not the absolute best Alex July 19, 2015
I am on a gigabit internet connection and I get speeds of 400-500mbps up and down on this WiFi card, which is good, but not the absolute best. The major downside to this card is that it will not connect to 5Ghz bands greater than 44. Making this card practically useless to me. I was hoping to receive speeds of at least 600mbps up/down. But unfortunately the drivers are causing the card to not pick up my tri-band router's second (faster) 5.0Ghz band.

This card is excellent for 99% of people with it's excellent antenna reception and reliability, but if you're looking for a PCI-E WiFi card that can connect to 149-161 5.0Ghz bands, look elsewhere.

1.4Gbps Wireless speed - WOW! xcom007 April 3, 2015
I have the ASUS RT'AC87U Wireless router. Before I connected this antenna to my server, I was getting between 130-450Mbps using a D-Link PCI-E DWA-556. With this antenna I am getting between 877Mbps-1.4Gbps. I consider this outstanding for simply adding an antenna. Experiment with the beam-forming option on the antenna; default out of the box is OFF. When I turned it ON, speed jumped to +1Gbps. The beam-forming speed ranges from 1-1.4Gbps, consistently. Antenna has excellent build quality; you feel and see its worth the money. My only comment on the down-side is the lack of documentation supplied in the box. When you go to the Windows wireless properties and view the options, there is some research to do for wireless optimization. But I am getting that wireless +1Gbps, so I don't think I need to tweak anything (yeah, sure..). The default settings seem optimum for my environment. But still as a hobbyist, you like to have that information close at hand... You always wonder "How fast can I get it to go..."
