Review of Linux Compatibility[edit]

The Asus PCE-AC56 is a PCI Express WiFi card with PCI ID: 14e4:43b1
03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:43b1] (rev 03)

The card uses the Broadcom BCM4352 chipset and wireless connections of 802.11ac standard.

Until now there is no Linux driver for the Asus PCE-AC56 in the Linux standard kernel.
However, a driver for the used chipset is provided by Broadcom for download.
This driver has to be compiled and installed per hand.
