2008 Mac Pro owner report on Asus 802.11ac PCIe card:
Updated the page on Mac/OS X Compatible 802.11ac adapters/cards with a report on a 2008 Mac Pro using an Asus PCE-AC68 802.11ac PCIe card with OS X 10.9.2 and Win 7. (He noted much lower rates w/10.9.2 than Win 7 so I included a link to OS X WiFi Diagnostics info.)
   There are earlier reports there on the two models of ASUS 802.11ac PCIe cards, including one referencing a driver mod for Thunderbolt PCIe chassis use. (The page also has info/links on other 802.11ac adapters (USB, Mini-PCIe) with Mac OS X support. Including driver links if required.)
