Reviews
ASUS PCE-AC88 Wireless NIC PCIe, 1000+2167Mbps, External magnetic antenna base, NitroQAM (1024-QAM) technology, AiRadar is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy-peasy and god result I had to endure the non-availability of a hard wire connection due to a work move, so thought I would try and install a PCI to use the wireless connection to its max potential This kit looked good, bit expensive, but latest stuff always is I guess Never really done much with hardware, so experienced some trepidation on installation, but needn't have worried, easy to fit, took five minutes, and then setting up was straight forward I only had a dongle before as I always used an Ethernet connection, so as a comparison, there was none. I set up the router to separate the GHz bands from each other, and now have a ping of 3-5, and upload in the seventies Big antenna thingy is ugly, but as PC under desk, it doesn't worry me All in all a quality bit of kit, easy to install and set up for a novice. It's a bit dear, but guess it will get cheaper... Recommend
