Asus pce ac56 slow speeds?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, so I live in a student flat, my flat doesn't have access to cable so i've had to purchase a wifi card for my desktop gaming pc. got the Asus pce ac56 after reading alot of positive reviews, was fine at first then now its getting really slow, typically 10-30 mbps down with 40 upload. when on my phone im getting a consistent 100/100 connection if not even faster. I've tried switching channels with the software that comes with it but nothing seems to help anymore. any tips?

Did it wiggle out a bit? Maybe change antenna directions?

Lots of reasons:

  • Distance from router
  • Interference
  • Do you have it set to AC?
  • Did you install the drivers/software suite?

I don't know if you would need a clean install of windows. Try updating all wifi related drivers, etc.
