Dual-Band AC1900 Wireless PCIe Adapter with Triple Mount from ASUS

Dual-Band AC1900 Wi-Fi Adapter

Boost Your Speed, Boost Your Performance 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.

Fastest Wi-Fi standard: 802.11acThe PCE-AC68 uses Broadcom’s new 5th gen Wi-Fi 802.11ac chipset to reach speeds of up to 1.3Gbit/s through the 5GHz band, which is 3X faster than 802.11n Wi-Fi. It maintains full backward compatibility with all previous Wi-Fi protocols, providing two-way transmission while ensuring a smooth transition to 802.11ac and interconnection with existing devices.

Next-generation Wi-Fi on both bands!Broadcom TurboQAM™ hardware on 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 PCE-AC68 into a formidable AC1900 wireless adapter, providing speeds that cannot be bettered by generic wireless adapters.

No More Dead Zones with 150% the Coverage

zones

Wider Signal Coverage Powerful two-way transmission and a signal-boosting high-gain design give the PCE-AC68 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.

Extend and Strengthen your Wireless Connection

adapter

Robust, reliable wi-fi 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 fast and stable connection.

Flexible Antenna Placement

Extension Cables included The three detachable antennas of the PCE-AC68 can be placed remotely via bundled extension cables. A magnetized stand also comes in the box, which can easily attach to various surfaces for more placement options. By making the antennas mobile, the design offers more flexibility in choosing locations for better signal reception and quality.

Custom Heatsink for Best Stability

Durable Design The stylish, customised heatsink is crafted for non-stop operation, giving you improved stability and reliability for connections when running bandwidth-intensive network tasks in hot environments.

This guide seeks to make you aware of various security terms and ideas associated with wireless networking and what you should consider when setting up a wireless network.

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 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit This is just great easy to set up and it’s blistering quick Can’t fault Mel

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine No problems fitting and getting it working. Very good speed, better than I got from a Netgear extender.

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.

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.
