Hi. Looking to buy a new network adapter. As i have readed PCI version is better than the USB stick type. So if i buy, would make "future proof" buy, so the next 3-6 years no need again. Just the one got now it is like 8 years old. Thinking on Asus PCE-AX58BT or the TP-Link Archer TX3000E. Do i see correct that the asus is not ac only and Bluetooth 5 ? Missing the ac support?


Part of the Furniture
With WiFi 6GHz coming soon, there is no card that will be close to future-proof for the next 3-6 years.

If you need to buy now, the Asus PCE-AX58BT or the GIGABYTE GC-Wbax200 would be my bets, with the Gigabyte model much cheaper and therefore easier to upgrade from (if testing in your computer and network environment shows it performs as well as the Asus' 'AX58BT too).
