Asus has launched one of the first Wi-Fi 6 cards for desktop PCs, letting you upgrade an old computer so it can use the new, faster wireless technology.

With WiFi 6 (802.11ax) technology and wide 160 MHz bandwidth, ASUS PCE-AX3000 delivers wireless speeds that are up to 2.7X faster than WiFi 5 (802.11ac) devices. A revolutionary combination of OFDMA and MU-MIMO technologies ensures the most efficient WiFi connection for your PC. ASUS PCE-AX3000 into your PC for an instant upgrade to the latest Bluetooth 5.0 technology.

The PCE-AX3000 is a PCI Express expansion card that can hit speeds of 2.4Gbps when used with a compatible router. It also supports Bluetooth 5.0, letting PCs connect to peripheral devices like mice and keyboards.

Wi-Fi 6, technically called 802.11ax, boosts theoretical signal speed from 3.5Gbps to 9.6Gbps, though you’ll never get close to this, using routers in your home.
It main benefit is that your signal can be split up across more devices. Previous Wi-Fi standards were designed when households had fewer devices-typically just one or two computers.

Wi-Fi 6 has been designed to cope with increasing Wi-Fi demand for each device like computers, phones, tablets, smart TV, speakers, and doorbells. Wi-Fi 6 spread the signal to maintain speed in homes where, for example, one person is using Skype, another is watching Netflix, and a third is playing online games.

Several routers and phones are available that support Wi-Fi 6, like Asus RT-AC58U and Samsung Galaxy S10 phone. As Wi-Fi 6 is new so it will take some time to come with new laptops.

You can upgrade your old laptop to support Wi-Fi 6 by using the PCE-AX3000 Asus card. The PCE-AX3000 is on sale with a price tag of $69.99 in the US and is expected to be available in India soon.
