802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 PCI-E Adapter

- 5th generation 802.11ac chipset gives you dual-band,2.4GHz/5GHz for up to super-fast 1.30Gbps
- Flexible extended antenna placement helps you pinpoint the best reception in your environment.
- Instant Wi-Fi upgrade for your desktop: no more messy Ethernet cables needed.
- High-power design clears up dead zones with 150% greater coverage
- Custom heatsink dissipates heat for more stable and reliable non-stop operation

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: 802.11ac

The PCE-AC68 uses Broadcom's new 5th generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac chipset to reach speeds of up to 1.3Gbit/s through the 5GHz band, which is three times faster than 802.11n Wi-Fi. At the same time, it maintains full backward compatibility with all previous Wi-Fi protocols, providing high performance two-way transmission while ensuring a smooth transition to 802.11ac and seamless interconnection with existing devices.


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


Flexible extended antenna placement

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.


Stylish aluminum heatsink handles heat for extra stability

The added heatsink uses highly-conductive aluminum to remove heat from the chipset, ensuring greater reliability for non-stop operation. Lower temperatures translate into a more stable device in all climate conditions, even during hot summers, and greater stability means more consistent connectivity and longer product lifespan. Plus, the heatsink has been crafted for a stylish look, once more showing ASUS always goes beyond the spec.

4 November 2018
If you want wifi from your house when you are 2km down the road at a cafe this is for you.

Best part is it has 5ghz so speeds are great.

It works better than the last!

My previous wifi-adapter was cutting out. I bought this and haven't had any issues, despite the router being hid under a bookshelf (not my decision).

It's very stable, has better range, and I've also managed to download while playing online fps games at 30 ping or lower.

You get what you pay for though. I wouldn't expect any less performance for this price, and I wonder how much the performance would increase if I made changes with my router setup.

Buy this if you're serious about having an excellent wireless adapter.

Awkward install, really good performance

14 October 2019
I've been using this for a couple weeks now and really enjoy the performance. I found installing the drivers to be a pain since Windows 10 didn't seem to have any universal drivers like how video and audio tend to these days but once installed, I was ready to go.

The most annoying part was the install since aerials can get in the way of your cable management, there's no way to get it fitting perfect in your case without making some concessions but if you use the external aerial that is included with the kit, I think it will work just fine ( I haven't used it enough so I don't know )

Ethernet speeds @ 6m+ 2nd story up!

22 March 2019
This card and antenna are fantastic, if anything could be changed it would be the ability to replace antenna cables to a longer type than the fixed 1m length, none the less consistently achieving 190+ Mbps download and 195+ Mbps upload (200/200 plan) real world download speeds of 24MBps through google drive, steam, origin and even at times Utorrent. works fantastic with my ACC87U modem router (w/ AC88U antenna) near to flawless product, no bluescreens or anything as previously reviewed with others.

Strong, fast, and resilient connections

24 January 2019
I was struggling with my last wireless adapter even staying connected to my router. I got fed up and bought this one. I am not disappointed at all! Now I'm getting 100+Mbps to the internet and probably faster to my router and my connection never drops. The form of the adapter is pleasant, and the magnetized base on the antenna is a nice touch. The adapter and the antenna both feel very well made. I would definitely recommend
