• Slots into any PCI-E slot on your motherboard – compatible with any x1, x4, x8 or x16 slot

Special Features

What does this network card provide me with?
This PCE-AC55BT network adapter will allow you to add superior Wi-Fi performance and extra functionality to your desktop or notebook. It can receive both 2.4GHz and 5GHz signals, so you can connect to the 5GHz band for lag-free streaming and gaming – although you will need to have a dual-band router.

An external antenna base allows you to move and position it in the place that has the best coverage and speed. Coupling this with the 2x2 MIMO operation you can get combined transfer speeds of up to 1200Mbps. With up to 300Mbps speeds on 2.4GHz and up to 867Mbps on 5GHz, it is three times faster than 802.11n Wi-Fi. The card is able to fit into a standard PCI Express slot, giving you a wide range of compatibility, since it will fit in an x1, x4, x8 or x16 slot.

How does this add extra functionality?
Also embedded into the card is the capability of emitting dual mode Bluetooth 4.0. This allows you to connect the newest Bluetooth low energy (BLE) products to your computer, for applications such as healthcare, fitness, beacons and home entertainment. There is support for Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) too, which allows you to wirelessly display your computer on the big screen. You will need an Intel WiDi-certified receiver device, with some TVs and projectors already having this built-in, for more information click here.
