The ASUS PCE-AC56 is a 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 867 Mbps. Broadcom TurboQAM technology super-charges 2.4 GHz 802.11n performance from 300 Mbps to 400 Mbps with compatible devices. Plus, the stylish external magnetic antenna base gives you more flexibility in adjusting antenna placement to get the best signal reception quality possible.

Fast Wi-Fi standard - 802.11ac

The PCE-AC56 uses Broadcom’s new 5th generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac chipset to reach speeds of up to 867 Mbps through the 5 GHz 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.

Extend and strengthen your wireless connection

ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using 802.11ac beamforming technology, high power amplification, and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases and enhanced stability.

No more dead zones with 150% better coverage!

A powerful signal-boosting high-gain design gives the PCE-AC56 improved signal transmission that extends Wi-Fi range and coverage by up to 150% compared to generic client devices. This extended coverage minimises the possibility of dead spots at any location, offering fast and uninterrupted HD streaming and smooth multiplayer gaming throughout the home or office.

Instant Wi-Fi upgrade for desktops

With its PCI Express interface, the PCE-AC56 plugs into any motherboard to give the desktop an instant 802.11ac Wi-Fi upgrade, with access to speeds of up to 1.3 Gbps. As it connects directly to the motherboard, there are no messy cables to clutter your computing environment and no dedicated power supply is required.

Stylish Aluminium heatsink handles heat for extra stability

The added heatsink uses highly-conductive aluminium 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 that ASUS always goes beyond the spec.

“As good as it gets”

“I have always previously built my own computers. Back when I spent every waking hour keeping up to date with everything computing. The last I built was 8 years ago. Things have changed, I lost interest in keeping up to date and couldn’t face doing the vast research needed to build a new computer to the fine specification and selection that I used to. I remember quiet PC existing back then and remembered these guys select among the best stuff out there to make a quality silent PC. All that research hassle done for me. Beautiful selection of parts. Superb packaging that allowed computer to survive when I saw the Parcelforce guy literally throw the box out of his van. I am no “fanboi” and have developed a critical eye over the years and can find no fault at all here. None of these words are specific to the Ryzen fanless whatever, you will get this beauty and quality from any PC you get from these guys. It is worth paying such guys a little extra than the build cost of equipment like this. Not that they charge much for all they do. Its way more than final price they save you, it could be your sanity as well. Click the buttons for the best bits already researched for you out there, and make a wish that these lovely guys and gals stay in business. First time I have ever been impressed by a British company. Absolutely stunned. Are you really based in UK? Love you guys x”
