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 USB-AC68 AC1900 USB3.0 Wireless Adapter, 600+1300Mbps, 3x4 MIMO Dual 3-position antennas, AiRadar Beamforming is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product but interesting installation. 1) live in an old house with very thick walls 2) made the silly mistake of moving my office. 3) realise that the slow connection and drop outs are caused by number 2 and possibly number 1. solution: buy the Asus USB AC68 from scan. 1) open box 2) remove all packaging and by amazed by the instruction printed on the device to use installation cd 3) realise your computer has no optical media drive and hasn't since 2005, then rack brain for the USB optical drive. 4) find optical drive - 2 days later and install disk drive. 5) rejoice as all works perfectly and you log into scan to write this review. dead easy to use, and no more dropouts, I'm happy. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent WiFi Receiver Asus AC1900 Wireless Adapter:- Some background - In my home, wireless was awful! I moved to Devolo Homeplugs and for several years, had no problems with my old VM SH2. Recently, VM upgraded me to 100 Mbs and I noticed that the Homeplugs Maxed out at 50 Mbs in my home. I then bought Devolo 650 Mbs plugs and all seemed well - full download speed. However, recently, the network connection started dropping out at random. I was upgraded to the VM SH3 and all seemed well - for a while. Network dropouts started yet again. I decided to try the latest wireless tech with beamforming - so I bought the Asus AC1900 Wireless Adapter. Wow - what a difference! The Hub is in my lounge and the computer is in my upstairs study/office. I now have a stable connection with no dropouts. Win 10 Network Connections says that the device is connecting at 975 Mbs! Be aware that Win 10 also reported a connection of 1Gbs for the homeplugs - this is not possible. This is a very capable (if a little pricey) WiFi receiver in the style of ROG! A small annoyance is that the lead on the USB cradle is very short - optimal wireless reception requires a little patience in the placement of the receiver. All that said, it is very good and I would recommend. Paul

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Speed Very Fast. You get to hit the top end of what can be achieved with AC WIFI. Also you can get much better range with using this USB stick because of the ability to use the extension cable especially at the 5G frequency.
