Wi-Fi card upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I got an intel AC8265 card in my pc. I have two questions. I have an AC router, is it worth it to upgrade to Wi-Fi 6 only on my pc? Would there be any speed difference (I download very often heavy files)? Would the AX201 interface compatible with my AC card? Thanks in advance

P.S. I download on other devices at about 75-95 mb/s and on my AC8265 at about 30, and no, running an Ethernet cable is not an option.

The speed "difference" would be within margin of error. You would see zero benefit since the router cannot deal with WiFi 6 clients you'll drop back to WiFi 5 on your PC.
