802.11AC client 3x3

Looking at getting EA6900 802.11AC wifi router - but don't know what to do as far as a laptop wifi client.

Is there any 802.11ac mini-pcie or usb3.0 client that is 3x3 to support ac1200?

(also is there a better recommendation than EA6900 for router?)

    AFAIK all the AC USB adapters are still 2x2. I would get one that uses USB 3.0 though so that is not a bottleneck.

    Thanks for the reply. As I said in my original post "mini-pcie or usb3.0"'

    AFAIK also, there are only 2x2 on either of the above. That's why I inquired about 3x3...
  3. Yes, sadly you are correct and there are no 3x3 adapters available. The only way to actually use the 3x3 is with another router in media bridge mode.

    Even in PCIe there is only one 3x3 card available. THIS ASUS.
  4. Unex in Taiwan makes two mini pcie AC cards that are 3x3. One single band, the other dual. Only down side is working with an overseas company who usually deals in bulk. If you get one, let us know how it works out for you.

    Enjoy!
