Product Overview The easy way to upgrade any desktop PC to super-fast next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi
The ASUS PCE-AC56 is a 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 867 Mbps. Broadcom® TurboQAM™ technology super-charges 2.4 GHz 802.11n performance from 300 Mbps to 400 Mbps with compatible devices. Plus, the stylish external magnetized antenna base gives you more flexibility in adjusting antenna placement to get the best signal reception quality possible.

Fastest Wi-Fi standard: 802.11ac
The PCE-AC56 uses Broadcom’s new 5th generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac chipset to reach speeds of up to 867 Mbps through the 5 GHz band, which is three times faster than 802.11n Wi-Fi. At the same time, it maintains full backward compatibility with all previous Wi-Fi protocols, providing high performance two-way transmission while ensuring a smooth transition to 802.11ac and seamless interconnection with existing devices.

Extend and strengthen your wireless connection
ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using 802.11ac beamforming technology, high power amplification, and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases, and enhanced stability.

No more dead zones with 150% better coverage!
A powerful signal-boosting high-gain design gives the PCE-AC56 improved signal transmission that extends Wi-Fi range and coverage by up to 150% compared to generic client devices. This extended coverage minimizes the possibility of dead spots at any location, offering fast and uninterrupted HD streaming and smooth multiplayer gaming throughout the home or office.

Instant Wi-Fi upgrade for desktops
With its PCI Express interface, the PCE-AC56 plugs into any motherboard to give your desktop an instant 802.11ac Wi-Fi upgrade, with access to speeds of up to 1.3 Gbps. As it connects directly to the motherboard, there are no messy cables to clutter your computing environment, and no dedicated power supply is required.

Stylish Aluminum heasink handles heat for extra stability
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. Plus, the heatsink has been crafted for a stylish look, once more showing ASUS always goes beyond the spec.

Reviews
ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 PCI-E Adapter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product easy installation When I brought this product I knew it would be quality as it’s from Asus the only thing I was worried about was the installation as it has to go in to the motherboard. However when I got the product it slotted in easily in he motherboard and started receiving power straight away. It works great and has improved my WiFi speeds. Also the magnetic stand is great to be able to get the best speeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quadrupled my wifi speed I switched up my old wireless card for this bad boy. My old one was losing connectivity and the speed was slow considering I have fibre optic broadband. As soon as I installed it (which was easy) my wifi speed almost quadrupled and the wifi hasn't cut out once!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and setup. As with any decent Asus product this is of good quality. Easy to install in your rig and get running. For anyone less familiar with WiFi and bandwidth speeds this will easily stream 4k while also browsing as long as your internet is 'fast' enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hardware, poor software The card is quite small as expected, even with it's own heatsink. I was tired of my USB WiFi dongle over-heating and crashing the internet and messing with other hardware so I bought this. So far, my internet is stable, but the software it comes with is horrible, ASUS should really invest in making a better more logical to use software to manage your connections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, works well. Nice piece of equipment with separate aerial. Easy to install and set up, strong signal so works fine. Recommended.

Questions & Answers

What is the recommended range for this?

Currently looking to buy this card, however what would the recommended range be? Current I am 35 feet from my modem however that will be brought down to 20-25 in the next few days.
Asked by: Fiif
My house has three floors where the modem is low on th bottom floor and my computer is in one of the highest rooms on the top floor through about three or four walls and it still has better speeds than my phone when it’s next to the modem so it probably will be fine
