  • Somewhat related, does anyone know where I can get the internal USB 2.0 motherboard headers that's needed to connect these cards for Bluetooth to work?

      It comes with one, but as most people pointed out, this is essentially intel AX200 in PCIe packaging. You are better off buying AX200 and a cheap PCIe adapter (if you are tech savvy). AX200 antenna sockets do need to be connected carefully if you opted for DIY so I can understand why most people prefer a ready to go solution.

      Then, there is AX210, the current iteration - WiFi 6E. If you want AX210, you definitely need to go for DIY route at the moment. No AU sellers selling AX210 yet. Maybe that's why AX200 based solutions are still expensive here.

      • Good to hear this one comes with a cable then. I recently got a cheaper AX200 card and it did not come with a cable for Bluetooth :(

    it uses Intel AX200(about $10), I would recommend buying EDUP, same ax200 for only $35.

    Considering these are all basically just adapters for an Intel AX200 wifi card, why not just get a cheaper one?

    Im glad I bought a mobo with Wifi6… These prices are a bit extravagant.

  • I don't see how a PCIe is better than a USB wireless dongle.

    I'm having alot of trouble with my PCIE adapter, it keeps becoming non-responsive at times and the only way to fix it is to disconnect and reconnect on the network adapter settings.

    • Sounds like a power/link savings mode on that particular slot.

      • I've changed the settings in control panel and it doesn't fix the problem.

        • Including BIOS?

          • @JSONBourne: no not bios, i didnt know you can change it in bios

    • Yo Homr what model adapter is in your PC?

          It's more about the chipset used inside the USB or PCIe adapter. You get what you paid for to be honest. D-Link with low cost Realtek wifi chipset…. not exactly a reassuring combination.

          If the PC is getting strong signal but having those weird disconnects, it could be a compatibility issue between that chipset and your router's chipset. However, if there is a fair distance between your PC and router, then it could be a distance issue. AC1200… that's older tech (not really worthwhile wasting a PCIe slot for it).

        • I would swap it out and get this ASUS PCE-AX58BT Amazon deal.

          • @Twix: Can't afford it :(

    If you don't need the heatsink or the external antenna then just get the Asus pce-ax3000. It's selling for about $60 for a lot of places.

    • Or the gigabyte GC-WBAX200. The benefit of the cheaper asus and the gigabyte is you don't have to take off the heatsink if you want to upgrade to a new intel AX210 chip. Just change the chip on the PCIE card like you would on a laptop. As mentioned by netsurfer and others. All these wifi 6 cards are essentially a cheap laptop intel AX200 chip attached to a pcie card with a unneeded fancy heatsink slapped on and bigger antennas.

  • If you have a spare router or repeater, set it up as a bridge to your current WiFi and connect your PC to it via an ethernet cable. It will be more stable.

    • Nobody has a spare Wifi 6 router just lying around.

      That's an older, more traditional approach. Nowadays, with more people moving to mesh, repeater approach isn't ideal / flexible enough anymore. Also, there is the bluetooth part. Not a big fan of cheap USB bluetooth dongles.

      • Not a fan of any usb dongles

  • Anyone been using these ax200 cards in a pcie-x16 slot at 4x?

    x1 slot on board i ordered could be too close to GPU.

    Some specifically say x1 only, others say mult-slot support. Figured it shouldn't matter, unless there's a recommended card
