Asus AC1300 PCI-e Wireless Network Card (PCE-AC56)
Available online only
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. 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. 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 minimizes the possibility of dead spots at any location, offering fast and uninterrupted HD streaming and smooth multiplayer gaming throughout the home or office. With its PCI Express interface, the PCE-AC56 plugs into any motherboard to give your 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. 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.

- Disappointing- July 25, 2021
was good when i finally got it to work but didnt last long ... the whole set up process was very very confusing but finally after figuring it out and downloading the processer for this item it started fine connected to the internet and ran very fast but then i ran into an issue where it would connect to internet and disconnect every few seconds and would stay connected long enough to do anything ... tried to find a way to fix it and couldnt find anything ... found some reviews where other people had the same problem and it was useless at that point with no way to fix.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- mediocre device. didn't help- September 25, 2021
The good news: This internal card and external antennas did not impair my reception off my wireless 1 Gig modem service. The bad news: it didn't help either. I tried moving the antennas to the external mount and tried various positions- all less than 20 feet from the modem- result: no change. Not worth my time to go get a refund, but I'd have wanted to.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Wireless card for older desktop computer- February 20, 2021
Purchased the ASUS Dual-Band AC1300 Wireless PCI to connect a desk top to our wifi. Had purchased a new desktop, so old one was relegated to basement. Still good computer, but without wireless connection, had little value. The card was easy to install and has performed as I had anticipated and expected.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Wonder Www fix- May 18, 2022
Had connection problems with my internet where I would lose signal randomly to the point that I was looking for other internet providers. After installing this, which was a breeze to set up. I couldn't imagine surfing the web without it. It absolutely eliminated any all connection issues I was having.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good product- May 8, 2021
Relatively easy to install and speed and quality of internet connection excellent for video conferencing, low to medium end gaming, working remotely. My computer does not have graphics capability to do high end on-line gaming so I cannot say how this would work in such a situation.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
