On Windows, the chipset Broadcom BCM4352 in the ASUS PCE-AC56 has a driver update, which is missing from the ASUS website and from Windows Update. The driver is called: "broadcom bcm-43xx 18.104.22.168". It was issued in 2020. The update offered by ASUS or Windows Update dates from 2015 or 2017, and is not officially compatible with Windows 10 and 11. The driver update fixes some issues not appearing on Windows 7, but appearing on Windows 10. The update is present in Windows Update (internal code: "VEN_14E4 DEV_43B1") "https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=VEN_14E4%20DEV_43B1", but it will not show for the ASUS PCE-AC56.
