I'm moving my desktop PC from the basement, to the living room (oh happy day!). The spot I've picked does not have access to an Ethernet port, so I'm shopping around for a pci/e wifi card that will do a couple things for me.
I want to connect the the same router more than one time, in the same vein as a duel network interface card... except using wireless.
My home router is an Asus brand AC1300 router, it throws a N connection in both the 2.4 and 5 bands. I'd like to connect to both bands at the same time, or the same band 2 times.
I'd like to keep my budget under 100usd, no preference on antenna positioning or brand.
I understand that connecting to the router 2 times will not improve internet speeds, I'm after the local network transfer speeds.
I'm also aware that this will not improve signal strength
Why do I want this? Well, since you asked... I do several large file transfers multiple times a day... More speed means less downtime.
If this type of hardware doesn't exist, I will end up just running Ethernet upstairs again. I'd like to avoid it, because of reasons.
