Mr

Hi, this review is about the Asus USB AC68 Dual Band USB Adapter, and I can tell you in all honestly that is the best USB Wireless Adapter I have ever purchased. I live in a difficult for WiFi, 3 story house, where the router is placed in the middle story. Normal wireless adapters e.g. TP-Link 300Mbps etc. struggled to pick up the router from both the 2nd or ground floor respectively.

Its great, but involves some effort for Windows 10 users

The connection on this is amazing. Its great to a point I held onto it despite it having disconnection issues at the beginning. After some research on updates for Windows 10 and some fiddling with drivers, Its good to go. Previously had zero connection from my room to my router on my pc. Now getting good connection for both 5g and 2g networks.

Be warned: Excellent, if you can get it to work.

Chipset is Realtek RTL8814AU

Windows 10 drivers are now kaput.
Drivers for Linux Kernel 4.20 + and 5+ drivers are non-existent.

When I was able to use it, it was as fast as advertised.
