UFON AX200 WiFi 6 Wireless Adapter
The UFON AX200 WiFi 6 Wireless Adapter supports the IEEE 802.11ax wireless standard - Wi-Fi 6 technology with Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi 6 certification by leveraging Intel AX200 module. It's compatible with PCI-E x1 slot and please do not insert it into x16 slot (poor compatibility).
This WiFi 6 adapter passes the rigorous internal tests from Intel which works in high temperature and humidity. Its MU-MIMO and OFDMA features increase throughput by 2.5 times compared with WiFi 5 (802.11ac) wireless adapter. Please note the actual throughput will depend on your PC's CPU performance and your WiFi router performance.
It supports Windows 10 64-bit (not support for other Windows OS), Linux and Google Chrome OS. This Wi-Fi 6 adapter is also backward compatible with other older wireless standards, such as 802.11ac or 802.11n. The Bluetooth 5.0 is backward compatible with Bluetooth 4.2 and 4.0. In addition, some motherboards do not support two or more wireless adapters working at the same time as it may cause a system crash, therefore please only install and use one wireless network adapter on your computer.

This thing is working perfectly on a 9-year old Alienware PC. I really thought it wouldn't. It was a shot in the dark. My damn machine is just too old! So, not only is it working perfectly, but the speed is better than any other wireless card in the house. We have 7 PCs, and the Alienware is the oldest one by far. The old warhorse is now the fastest online machine in the house! Unbelievable.
Detailed and I explain it all.

This is a full height PCIe 1x card that also requires a free USB 2.0 header on your motherboard for the Bluetooth to work. It really is nothing more than a circuit board interface to convert the Intel m.2 CNVi to PCIe for ONLY the wifi and external antenna (which has a magnetic mount. Also the package comes with a strip of 3M double-sided sticky tape cut to the length of the bottom of the antenna if it's needed.) Also, unless your router supports 802.11ax IT WILL NOT RUN AT THE ADVERTISED SPEED. It will run under 1Gbps, about 800Mbps, unless you have a nice, high end router. I have the Asus ROG AC5300 triband. I can still download at 1Gbps, my internet connection speed. That's a $450 router for you connected to a 10Gbit modem.
Yes, Asus and other have made 802.11ax Routers. BUT prettyuch all were made before the final draft of the AX standard was finished. Stay away from these. Frankly, stay away from AX unless you are in a highly congested area with a WHOLE LOT of wireless devices battling for channels and bandwidth and I mean a lot. I would say 95% of people do not need 802.11ax (WiFi 6) as an educated guess. (2 decades of exp. 3 degrees - Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Information Technology, 5 minors, all in IT, Majored in Networking and have 47 certifications...including a few Cisco Systems certs. I know what I'm talking about.
You can get this if you want a little future proofing, but you can get a decent USB dual band 802.11ac adapter that should meet your needs. Though is is about the only way to get Bluetooth 5.0 right now except for the liteny of audio only devices.
Something neat I found out, if you set up the PC right, you can funnel sound from a network connected TV to Bluetooth headphones.
Overall, it works well enough and the doubled Bluetooth distance and transmit speed (6Mbps) that 5.0 brings is nice.
Magnetic mount is a nice touch.
Wish it didn't need a USB 2.0 header though.
Works. Connects at Wifi 6 aka AX

I took a gamble with this product. I did not expect it to work but it works well. It connects to my router using AX / Wifi6. I have no complaints. Follow the directions for setting up the drivers and it should be good. I have no comment on the bluetooth as I did not install the cable from the card to my motherboard. It is a very thin card - i mention this because I have a (LARGE) Nvidia 2080 graphics in the slots above this card. Mounting the actual antenna is lets say complicated. It has a magnet mount (?) but I have no metal near my computer so I taped it up on the wall (yep, what can I say...) and the cable is short for the antenna.
Excellent WiFi NIC for the price.

This is a beast of a wifi card. Pair it with a WiFi6 supporting access point and see the magic. And it is also very competitively priced. This thing blows every other WiFi NIC around its price range. Strongly recommended.
Really weak antenna

This was to replace my Asus PCE-AC88, which has a long antenna cable, as well as four antennas. This was intended to be used for the 802.11AX with a wireless network, connecting files and use between the PC, and two separate laptops (as well as the Asus RG-AX11000 router).
Unfortunately, I once had 75%-100% full bar connectivity. Now, it registers as one bar, maybe even zero. The router is about 20 feet away, around a corner.
Oh well. Guess I'm going to go back to my Asus AC card until other, more reliable wifi 6 PCI cards are available that have better reception strength.
