A preview version of the new WiFi 6 standard has been released, and it will replace the old 802.11ac WiFi found in newer PCs and laptops with the new 802.11ax.
However, you may want to know if you can access it. Even if the manufacturer provides a new standard, it does not mean that the existing equipment will have the appropriate hardware to support it. So new, even the latest and greatest PCs and laptops may not support it. However, there is good news after all. Many users can still add WiFi 6 to their devices even if they have already purchased them.
It all depends on the type of equipment you have. There are few WiFi 6 modules and unfortunately AMD systems are not supported yet. However, if your device is powered by a 64-bit Intel processor, you should be able to upgrade it.
Intel and Killer Networking both provide cards for you to upgrade to WiFi 6. Hope there will be more developments soon to expand your options and improve accessibility for everyone.
For those using a desktop computer, you will need to use a PCIe connection to add a new network card. On the other hand, the laptop will have an M.2 slot to install the modules you need.
Although Intel’s WiFi 6 and Killer Networking modules are M.2 cards designed specifically for laptops, you can also use them on desktop computers.
They do not work in desktop M.2 slots, but they can be installed using special PCIe adapters.
All you need to do is to insert the card into the adapter and then insert it into an open PCIe slot on the motherboard of the desktop computer. This adapter should also provide the antenna needed to connect the small slot to the WiFi 6 module. After the
configuration is complete, you need to quickly install the driver to start and run WiFi 6.
You need to turn on your laptop first, and it should be able to detect the M.2 module responsible for powering your WiFi and Bluetooth.
Just unscrew this module and unplug the antenna cable connected to the existing WiFi module. Next, insert the new WiFi 6 card into the M.2 slot and connect the antenna cable. Again, you will need to install the driver to complete everything.
We hope that a simpler upgrade solution will appear in the future. A good solution can take the form of a WiFi 6 dongle, which means you can connect and access an improved connection.
Or, a PCIe card with a new built-in WiFi module will make it easy for you to upgrade your desktop WiFi functionality in the future.
Would you try to install WiFi 6 on your PC or laptop? Still have to wait until the next system update?
