Intel Embraces Wi-Fi 6 with New AX200 Adapter Card

Here’s some exciting news! Soon you’ll find a lot of laptops that support Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) thanks to Intel’s release of theย ย Wi-Fi 6 AX200 adapter.

The new card features mid-range 2×2 Wi-Fi 6 specs and delivers Wi-Fi speeds up to 2.4Gbps. It supports a channel-width of up to 160Mhz on the 5GHz band. For compatibility reasons, it also supports 2.4GHz Wi-Fi 5.

The card is available in  M.2 1216 (12 mm wide and 16mm long) or M.2 2230 form factor which makes it similar to most Wi- 5 adapters. As a result, you’ll be able to upgrade many existing laptops to Wi-Fi 6 via an adapter card.

The new AX200 card can interfaces with a host via either PCle or USB protocol. Consequently, you can expect networking vendors to release new add-on adapters relatively soon. It’s an all-in-one card, other than Wi-Fi 6, it also features Bluetooth 5.0.

Intel says the new Wi-Fi 6 AX200 adapter card is Wi-Fi Certified and available now to OEM vendors at a low cost of just $10 to $17 each, depending on the volume. You won’t be able to buy it at the store, however.

Update: AX200-based add-on cards are now available. Here’s how you can upgrade your computer with one.

  1. I have an HP Envy 17-jo13cl and wanted to install the AX200 wifi 6 card in it But the antenna plugs are a different size where would I find the adapters?
    i installed it with the pci adapter and all was fine except terrible reception so I reinstalled the ol wifi card,I know there has to be a simple adapter out there

    • You need to plug the antennas on properly to get good signals. If the plugs are of a different size, you’re out of luck. The laptop might have used an older M.2 design for Wi-Fi adapters.
