Asus AC55BT Wi-Fi Adapter

Submitted on Thursday, November 22, 2018
By James P
From Spruce Grove

Strengths of the product

Strong Signal strengths. Relatively easy installation. BT and 5GHz Using Intel Wi-Fi chipset for the NIC. Kind of nice to see that. I was expecting a Realtek Chip set.

Weaknesses of the product

The installation instructions were ok, not great. Only real strange thing was the requirement on an internal USB to get the BT adapter going. Cable was provided and pretty much connect to mother board and adapter. Windows 8.1 didn't like the hardware off the bat, but once the install drivers were loaded all was good.

Additional Comments

I had used a nano USB adapter (Generic No Name). It connected to my Wi-Fi , but the connection was extremely slow. < 1 MB/ Second on my HS connection. Installed the ASUS PCE-AC55BT. Super fast download speeds that were pretty close to my hardwired connection. There are now way more Wi-Fi networks in range on both the 2.4G and 5 G band width. Very happy with the purchase. Good Bang for the Buck and would definitely buy again.

Works amazing, even for acreage wifi

Strengths of the product

Magnetic base can attach to the case and ensures it won't slide off.

Weaknesses of the product

Crappy ASUS software for setup

Additional Comments

My girlfriend lives on an acreage and her wifi is not the strongest to begin with, but I put this in her gaming PC I built and online gaming has never had any issues whatsoever (other than Discord servers going down but that's not an issue for this). It's able to keep a solid connection, hasn't failed after two months as other people have said, and it just works.

Highly recommend. Have had one about a year, no problems. Excellent transfer speeds. Almost as fast as having a lan cable plugged in.

Well worth the money. Best one on the market in my opinion.

ASUS Wireless Network Card

From Edmonton

Strengths of the product

Works right out of the box on Ubuntu linux, no wrestling with drivers which is tight. I'm a floor above and across the house from my router, still getting just under 1.7Mbps

Weaknesses of the product

I don't dig having to find a spot for the antenna

Additional Comments

Pretty good for the price.

Only Lasted 2 Months

Strengths of the product

While working it worked reasonably well. - Speed was comparable to having ethernet plugged into modem. - Didn't lose connection a single time

Weaknesses of the product

The product only lasted 2 months. Now I have to make a warranty claim. Warranties with ASUS are ridiculous. ASUS not honouring warranties occurs so often that the Better Business Bureau has an alert about them. Many people report returning products to ASUS under warranty, then never getting anything back or getting back "refurbished" products that don't work. In 2016, ASUS had to make a settlement with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over product problems.

It works

Strengths of the product

Used it for a year and hasn't failed. Simple to use, plugged it in and go.

Weaknesses of the product

Slow, I get around 75mbps with it while my 7 year old macbook sitting on the same desk is getting 145mbps on the same connection.

Additional Comments

If you have a mediocre internet connection and want a simple card, this one could work. If you pay a lot of money for premium speeds, get a adapter that will keep up. I get better results using the macbook for wifi and then running ethernet to my computer by about 30mbps.

Simple and Fast

From Edmonton

Strengths of the product

Works off base Intel drivers so once you plug it in, it starts working immediately, even in a new build. Very fast speeds on 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz ranges.

Weaknesses of the product

Antenna isn't magentic so it won't stick on your case if that's what you're after.

Additional Comments

I've tried the Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I and this adapter is better. Simple installation, works immediately, and is very fast. Would recommend.
