    Great review! Just searched for
    I am going to put down 400 kr more (about 40€) on this card then tp-links Wi-Fi 6 card, the TP-Link AX3000 because of this review. Read that the connection on the WiFi 5 band was unstable on that one.
    Today I have a WiFi 5 router and a 100/100 connection put I want to be future proof with WiFi 6 and when the rest of the family has upgraded to devices with WiFi 6 I am going to convince them to upgrade.

    You didn’t describe how you got on setting up Bluetooth, which has proved to be impossible for many buyers of this product?

      In the box you find a Bluetooth header cable. That cable is used to connect both the card, and your motherboard, using a F_USB connector. If your motherboard doesn’t have one available, you cannot utilize the Bluetooth functionality. Your solution is to use a J_USB connector (if available) or an Internal USB Hub for your motherboard.

    Hi, why the connection speed of windows only reports 1.2 Gbps, and not the 2402 of maximum speed even using a GT-AX11000 router

      Because 2402 Mbps is a THEORETICAL bandwidth estimation, not a real-life one. 2402 Mbps are reached only in labs, with specialized equipment. Those theoretical numbers are always much higher than what you get in real life, with everyday technology people use.

        I had the exact question. My previous AC USB I was getting high signal strength and 1.3Gbs in WiFi status. I have the new ASUS AX3000 PCE-AX58BT, it is great but again signal strength is excellent but only see 1.0Gbs speed in WiFi status. I wonder if it is anyway faster behind the scenes. I was expecting to see 2.x Gbs. I am running the new Orbi Wifi 6

    Hello, how do you switch manually to different bands? Is it in the router set-up?

    Recently bought the Asus PCE-AX58BT…won’t get it til May 10th but am
    looking forward to installing it and seeing if it can deliver the kind of speeds I’ve been reading about.
    I also just bought the Asus AC2900 and Asus AC1900 to set up an AiMesh network in tandem with the Asus PCE-AX58BT….
    Hoping to realize a noticeable difference in speed…..

    Hello ! What was the distance between the router and the PC ? It was in the same room?

    Can you easily use this card to set up a wifi 6 hotspot? Or 5ghz hotspot?
    Assuming your pc is connected to the internet via ethernet?
