Product Overview The ASUS PCE-AC68 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.


Next-generation Wi-Fi on both bands!
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.

Extend and strengthen your wireless connection

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.


No more dead zones with 150% the coverage!
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

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.

ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless AC1900 PCI-E Adapter with 3 Antennas is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality and fast Very quick and stable. Have it setup one floor up and not near router. I added this to the x99-A motherboard as no wifi included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wireless adapter This is easily the best performing wifi adapter I've ever used. It's actually the best wireless performance I've ever witnessed too! I used to be on Sky fibre, getting about 8mbps (on a good day) with my old adapter. When I got this; that all changed! I was getting minimum 8mbps and upwards of 25mbps. Not only because of the wider range reception received off the 3 ariels. But also because the software that comes with it! Now I'm on BT and easily getting upwards of 50mbps downloads and 20mbps uploads.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Incredible Product but has some major issues So I bought this to work in-conjunction with my Asus VIII Ranger. Since they are both Asus products I presumed they would play nicely with each other however I was very wrong. The PCE-AC68 helps you get the best possible wifi signal with the three antennas. It has a really slick design and the PCE fits comfortably on the motherboard. The part which is a massive let down is the amount of blue screens I have gotten due to the drivers. I've tried using both the drivers that come with the CD and the most up-to-date drivers on the website however both do not fix this problem. The blue screen I get is a 'page fault in nonpaged area', which normally is due to ram however I have done extensive checks on the ram and it is not the problem. Blue screens caused by the PCE-AC68 has been happening since mid 2015 however Asus has not sorted the problems. I do really like this wireless adaptor however it has caused so much pain for me. I can't use google chrome, download torrents or update windows without it bluescreening halfway through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dose what it says on the box. I was looking for a way to use my phone 4g data as a hot spot as my internet is very slow. Always liked the Asus product finding them well made and great quality. This item lived up to what I expected. Great build quality. Great packaging. Very easy to install inside my case. I am a novice when it comes to putting in components into the computer so if I can do it I guess any one can. Just thought the price was a little on the heavy side for my liking. But has a good interface and easy connection to my phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little expensive; but worth it! Yes the price is high but you get what you pay for. You can feel the build quality as soon as you get it out the box. Plugged it in and boom 98% the speed of wired ethernet... now that's a result I can live with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast I needed high speed wifi, I have TB of photos on my LAN on a NAS which feed to Lightroom on my PC. I bought the Asus 1900 4x4 wireless AP as the other end and by simply lining up the aerials I achieved pretty stable 1300 mpbs link. It is clearly not the constraining factor now in movement of large files which is faster than in my wired gigabit LAN from my old PC. I get maybe 80Mpbs just drag and drop in Windows file manager. You do need to install software/drivers from CD, you won't get default drivers getting it going in my experience, but this is not a flaw just a note. Really happy with this, really pleasantly surprised how fast it is

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great WiFi Card Purchased this to put a spare desktop PC in a room which was too far away for a fixed line connection. Easy to install and works like a dream with a very strong wifi connection.

Questions & Answers

Will it fit above a graphics card?

I have a MSI Z9Z gaming 5 motherboard with SLI graphics cards and was wondering if this card would fit in the PCIE 1 slot
Asked by: AlexM
I have a PCIe port above my GTX 760. This card fits there perfectly. May need to think about whether or not you care about the heat generation of 2 components being that close together.
